JOSE BAUTISTA NEWS

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Sep 12

Yesterday was a decent day for my Official Lineup as I scored 101.90 points and finished 1693rd-of-5,750. Francisco Liriano was amazing, marking our second straight day with a 40+ point pitcher, but Michael Pineda disappointed and our Red Sox stack, while decent, wasn’t as good as a Nationals stack. That was the difference. Thursday’s Official Lineup (click to enlarge) Today...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, Sep 9

Yesterday I entered two lineups: my Official Lineup that I constructed at about 7:00 am EST and a pitching-centric lineup that I created after actual MLB lineups were released. Both are below. (The main advantage to waiting until game time is knowing who the cheap players are — see: Travis Snider and Darin Ruf.) Marcus Stroman was a feature on both lineups, which pretty much assured...
