Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Aug 14

Yesterday I was unable to enter any DraftKings lineups do to a busy work schedule, so let’s look back to Tuesday for a moment — weather killed me.

Frazier 'not worried' over home run shortage

CINCINNATI -- Todd Frazier hears the whisperings, the all-knowing opinions of why he has hit only one home run in the three weeks since the All-Star break. "He shouldn't have participated in the Home Run Derby at the All-Star Game because it messes up a hitter's swing," they say. They say it because Frazier had 19 home runs at the All-Star break and now, three weeks...

CINCINNATI -- For most of this season, Todd Frazier's song when he walked toward the batter's box has been Frank Sinatra's 'Fly Me to the Moon.'

So on Saturday afternoon Frazier changed his tune. It was...
