Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Apr 28

When last we spoke, I was recommending Shane Greene at home against the Indians, plus a Toronto Blue Jays stack. Greene was terrible, losing 11.6 points, and none of the Jays really stood out. If you compare the lineup below to Friday’s post, you’ll notice it’s a little different as I made a last-minute swap, opting for Kevin Pillar batting fifth or sixth over Collin Cowgill...

Jason Marquis, Strikeout Artist

Guessing the starting pitcher with most strikeouts per nine innings early on in the season should not be too difficult. Clayton Kershaw has struck out more than a batter per inning in his career, and in the early part of this season has shown more of the same, striking out 35 batters in just over […]

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Apr 21

After a shorter MLB Monday, Week Three really picks up some steam with a full, and unimpressive, Tuesday slate of starters. Mike Fiers is the top option for the day, but much of that arises from his pairing with Jason Marquis, which gives Fiers a 51% chance of picking up a win. Lance Lynn against a recently hot Nationals offense is my favorite matchup of the day. The rankings have...

Cubs 5, Reds 0 (4/15/15)

OSS: Jason Marquis did Jason Marquis things, Travis Wood looked like 2013 Travis Wood, and the Cubs are back in first place. Three up: 1. Anthony Rizzo hit his first homer of the year, an absolute bomb to right center into the teeth of the wind. The Cubs jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, which was nice to see after some of the high pressure games earlier this week...

Series Preview: Cincinnati Reds (4-2) at Chicago Cubs (3-2)

OSS: Cubs run out Lester and Arrieta and cap it off with a game against Jason Marquis. The two division leaders square off at Wrigley Field. The last-ish time these teams squared off, this happened There’s something about the Reds, I guess. A mini-throwdown between Johnny Cueto and David DeJesus (needlessly escalated by Matt Garza and Dusty Baker in the press the next day) a few...

Joey Votto homers twice as Reds edge Cardinals 5-4

As the Cardinals and Reds opened up a three-game weekend series on Friday night in Cincinnati, Jason Marquis made his first since Major League start since July 2013, also coming against the Cardinals (while with the Padres).It was safe to say this start was better, making his Reds debut and coming off of Tommy John Surgery. At one point in the game, he would retire 12 consecutive...

Say A Prayer for The Remnants Of That 2014 Dodger Bullpen

Remember last year? When the Dodgers had “too many closers” and an overwhelming amount of veteran presence and all that, in what was the most expensive bullpen ever assembled? And then, for the most part, it was awful? The new front office cut most of those guys loose. For the ones who found a home this winter, the last few days have been a bloodbath: Poor Paul Maholm, cut from...

5 non-roster invitees to watch in 2015

Non-roster invitees for major league clubs are like the TV pilots that Amazon Prime or Netflix release for possible new shows.  Most of them are unwatchable and have no shot at succeeding. However, sometimes one takes off and has a nice run.  Two recent examples would be pitchers Zach Duke for the Brewers and Pat Neshek for the Cardinals in 2014. Duke posted a 2.45 ERA in 74 appearances...

Cincinnati Reds Michael Lorenzen still battling for a rotation spot?

A day after it seemed that the Cincinnati Reds had handed a rotation spot to Jason Marquis, it seems that perhaps that report was incorrect given that Bryan Price said this on Thursday afternoon: As a bullpen, maybe not having (Sean) Marshall ready for the season, not having Broxton as our eighth-inning guy, we’ll certainly have to evolve into roles. That’s if Lorenzen doesn’t...

Tony Cingrani, Now In A Position To Succeed

Tony Cingrani is going to the Reds bullpen, having already been ruled out of the Cincinnati starting competition. If that’s a surprise, it’s only because after they shed Alfredo Simon and Mat Latos over the winter, the team might now actually start the season with one (or both!) of Paul Maholm and Jason Marquis in the […]

Tony Cingrani to the pen; veterans to the rotation?

There was some big news out of spring training earlier today when the Cincinnati Reds said that Tony Cingrani would be heading to the bullpen. That alone is an interesting move. In his career as a starter, Cingrani has a 3.50 ERA in 157.0 innings pitcher with 167 strikeouts and 67 walks. Those are strong numbers. He did however struggle in 2014, though it turns out he was injured...
