Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Aug 25

Last Friday I rolled with Doug Fister against the Giants, and Fister finally let us down. I also went with a couple Brewers against Jeff Locke, a hot Jon Jay and Jason Heyward, and a discount Khris Negron, none of whom came through for us either. The result was a 6335th finish in the $15,000 moonshot and a whiff of a day in double-ups. My three hidden players were Matt Carpenter...

Nats 6, Pirates 5

What a crushing weekend for the Pirates. Three one-run losses, two walk off losses, two blown-leads by their best relievers, a season-long losing streak (longest since 2012), and a lot of ground lost in the various playoff races. This game was a wild one, and wasn’t exactly well-played by either side at several points. Edinson Volquez and Doug Fister both looked great, but both...

Odrisamer Despaigne will take on the Rockies (and Yohan Flande) at home in what should be a pretty good outing (or at least a great chance at a win). I like Kyle Hendricks, but the Brewers could be a tough...
