Baseball's Luckiest Hitters

View image | gettyimages.com Earlier we focused on those MLB players with the worst luck to begin the season, looking at LD% and BABIP.  Now we look at those around the Majors hitting lots of fly balls, and still owning a BABIP above .300. There have been just 27 players since 2010 that finished the season with a FB% greater than 43% and a BABIP over .300. 15 of those happened...

Rays activate Nick Franklin from DL

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, May 11

Friday’s Official Lineup was assigned a risk level of 6 because of the security of the day’s featured starting pitcher, Gio Gonzalez. I also loved the security of the Indians stack against Mike Pelfrey and, almost as important, a bad Twins bullpen. Pelfrey was good, holding the Indians to 2 ER over 7 IP, but he didn’t strike out a single batter. In fact, the Twins as a pitching...
