BEAST FRANCHISE IS COMING

Everyone is hating on Chris Davis this preseason. Fantasy Experts are letting him slip past the top 8 at 3B and other experts do not even see Crush as a Top 20 1B option. While many people want to point at his high strikeout rate and declining power in 2014. Chris Davis is still a BEAST amongst men and this is why Chris Davis is a MUST-DRAFT in Round 3 of your Fantasy Baseball Leagues.

FANTASY EXPERTS 2015 CHRIS DAVIS

CD1
CD2

Why did Chris Davis have a bad season in 2014 is the first question we have to ask ourselves.

Crush

Season started slow. Crush had a nice hit streak going to start April where he racked up good RBI numbers, but zero power. At the end of the month Crush had an abdominal tear and had to go on the DL. 2 HRs for the month puts him way behind BEAST pace.

Crush2

 

When Crush came back from the DL, his power started to come alive. Crush had 4 HRs and 10 RBIs in the span of 4 games, we all knew Crush was coming back. But then on May 25th, everything went downhill.

Chris Davis and his Wife had a Baby (May 25th)

Superstar athletes like Kobe Bryant have talked about the struggles of having a new baby in your life while your season is going on. You don’t sleep as well having to take care of your kids, they also become your priority. Chris Davis really struggled after his child came into this earth.

Crush never really found his HR groove until the middle of June where his HR rate was just about 1 everyday for a couple of weeks. He never really got into the groove like he did in 2014, and then Crush ended the season suspended with adderrall which was a key ingredient in graduating college for myself.

Despite all of this Chris Davis in 2014 ended up with 127 Games. 26 HR. 72 RBI.

While many are scared of his high strikeout rate in 2014, and his decline in batting average from .286 to .190 in 2014. You have to look at the X-Factor. The X-Factor in this situation is that Chris Davis was adjusting to life being a dad, which hurt his baseball career. During the season Chris Davis never really got on the hot streaks we saw in 2013, which led to a decrease in confidence at the plate, which led to a bad season.

This season Chris Davis will be qualfied at 3B. 

Chris Davis must be drafted in the 3rd Round of every draft, I may be taking him in the 2nd. A big Spring training and it will be too late. Look for Chris Davis to be in a prime batting order spot likely of a great Orioles offense.

EXPECTED BEAST FRANCHISE BATTING ORDER

#2. Manny Machado

#3. Adam Jones

#4. Chris Davis

#5. Matt Wieters

The loss of Nelson Cruz does hurt, but there should be plenty of ducks on the pond everytime Crush steps up to bat. His 3B elgibility makes him too good to pass up. He can easily hit as many HRs as Miguel Cabrera who no longer qualifies at the position. This season has big things in store for Davis now that he has a better hang of life as a parent.

FANTASY BASEBALL 2015:

Mr. Holland’s Waiver Wire

(MAKE THE PLAYOFFS EDITION)

 

By Muntradamus

 

BEAST DOME NATION.

THE TIME IS NOW. Nothing up to this point of the season matters, as long as you make the playoffs. The players listed in this article will not only help you make the playoffs in Fantasy Baseball, they can make your wallets a little thicker in Daily Fantasy as well.

Ask questions below.

PITCHERS TO ADD OWNED IN LESS THAN 50% CBS LEAGUE

DEREK HOLLAND

While many are worried about Derek Holland coming back from an arm injury after lasting only 1 Inning on opening day. This is not the first time Derek Holland has gone through a long stint on the Disabled list in his career. Last season Derek Holland did not pitch until September. His stats were BEAST to say the least.

Screen Shot 2015-08-16 at 7.49.52 PMThis is going to be his 4th time coming off the DL late in the season. The Rangers are in the THICK of the playoff race and he struck out 8 batters in his last rehab start. The Rangers need Holland to be dominant, and so do you. Take a Flier on him, he will be a 2 start pitcher not this week, but next.

MATT GARZA(6 Wins. 4.82 ERA)

Garza struggled for a majority of the first half of the season giving up 10+ hits a game like it was his job. Second half of the season has been a nice turnaround as he has given up 2 ER or less in 3 of his last 5 starts. The strikeouts are starting to come back and the hit totals are starting to drop. If you want a chance to win $100K on DraftKings this Monday, Matt Garza is a good pitcher to roll with.

WILY PERALTA (3 Wins. 4.07 ERA)

Free Wily has been strong since coming off the DL. In his 4 starts, 3 of them have been BEAST as he hits over 97mph consistently on the radar gun. Despite the heat, the strikeout totals are very low. Regardless, he knows how to win games and that is just as important as any factor. Get him while he’s hot as he is one of the future guns of the MLB and will be in the league for a very long time.

IVAN NOVA (5 Wins. 3.47 ERA)

Read about my Nova prediction in this article here.

MIGUEL GONZALEZ (9 Wins. 4.42 ERA)

Miguel Gonzalez is as rock solid as it gets. The guy is consistent nearly every start, and with the way the Orioles and Chris Davis are swinging the bat, you should add Miggy on your team. He will not get the Strikeouts, but the ERA will always remain respectable and those win totals will start to rise.

 

HITTERS TO ADD OWNED IN LESS THAN 50% CBS LEAGUE

CHASE UTLEY (2B)

5 HR/30 RBI/.213 Average

Not only is Utley on FIRE. He is going to get traded to a contender, likely the Angels at any moment. Wherever he ends up, he will produce. Since coming off the DL Chase has not only had at least one hit in every game, he is stroking the ball hard. The batting average is on the rise and he will play at his peak if he plays for a team that is contending for something.

DELINO DESHIELDS (OF)

21 SB/53 Runs/.266 Average

How Deshields is owned in only 21% of Sportsline leagues is amazing. Delino not only has enough speed to be at 2nd base before you finish reading this sentence. He bats leadoff for one of the hottest teams in baseball. The Rangers will continue to score plenty of runs and Deshields will be part of it every night. The speed is amazing by itself and he will steal 30+ Bases before the season is over.

CARLOS BELTRAN (OF)

12 HR/40 RBI/.271 Average

Forget about the age, Carlos Beltran is smashing the ball and the time is NOW for a player like him. Beltran has been hurt off and on this season, but with the Yankees in the thick of the Playoff race, they will look at their former All-Star veteran to bring them to the promise land. There are not many more clutch hitters than Beltran, and that Yankee Stadium is more like a Softball stadium for lefties.

ODUBEL HERRERA (2B/OF)

6 HR/32 RBI/13 SB/.288 Average

Odubel is the future. If you had a Baseball season package, I had you on him a while ago. With Chase Utley likely to be traded soon, Herrera will only thrive more and more as the organization features him to the public. Right now he is batting 3rd everyday and has the speed to do big things, but most importantly some power as well. Very nice 2B option.

JED LOWRIE (3B/SS)

5 HR/17 RBI/.279 Average

Jed was struggling since coming off the DL, but he finally found his stroke this weekend against the Tigers. With his stroke going and the Astros ball park easy enough for a HS kid to hit Home Runs in. Jed offers some nice power upside at a position that is becoming more and more scarce. Hanley Ramirez has been out pretty much the entire 2nd half of the season and still leads all Shortstops in Home Runs.

For those of you not familiar with my Fantasy Baseball Advice. Check out the BEAST DOME Hall of Fame under the Baseball category.

I am in the running for having the HR Champion Ranked Higher than every expert on FantasyPros, for a third straight year.

2012 – Chris Davis

2013 – Nelson Cruz

2014 – Chris Davis/Mark Teixeira/Mike Trout

If any of those members of the 2014 class win the HR Crown, I will once again be the HR Champion. Nelson Cruz stands in my way as of now, the year I do not have him ranked the highest, but I still have a fighting chance as there is more than a month and a half left of Baseball.
There is no hitter hotter than Chris Davis who officially has gone Barry Bonds hot, he only trails by 3.

Looking for Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice? I create teams for you on all Platforms, or you can invest in a BEAST HEDGE. The last BEAST HEDGE that was ran had all clients more than double their money including a big payday for myself on July 3rd, the night after I found out my FantasyPros 2014 results. The BEAST HEDGE was down to $2 after entering multiple entries in large GPPs such as DRAFTKINGS $3 to make $100K. With a furious comeback in a Survivor Tournament that I dominated from Day 1 to Day 4, the Hedge finished with over $1,000. Original Investment was $200 Total.

BEAST HEDGE – REVENGE

With Football coming back into the picture, I laid low on the BEAST HEDGE juice, but I am going to do one more to close out the MLB season. If you are interested send an E-mail to BEAST@BEASTDOME.com and I will share the Investment strategy I am going with for the Final Hedge.

All results can be found on BEASTHEDGE.com.

This 2015 season I competed in a Daily Fantasy Baseball Tournament on FantasyPros against all the Top Fantasy Baseball Experts.

(#7 out of 46)

I was 2 HRs away from being #4 overall. Still I will use this as motivation to close out the MLB season, as well as start Football strong.

Because if I am not #1. Then I am not #1.

ALL BEAST DOME TEAM (1st Half)

By Muntradamus

BEAST DOME NATION.

The MLB All-Star Break is here, which means this is the only time of the year there are not daily numbers for me to analyze. It also means it is time to take a step back and look at the first half of the year.

The general draft strategy this year was to grab Hanley Ramirez in Round 1. Follow it up with Jacoby Ellsbury in round 2. Aim for Lester in Round 3. Then fill out your Infield with Power. Outfield with speed. While grabbing sleeper pitchers along the way.

The players below were mentioned in the Draft Strategy as well as having a higher Ranking than the expert Field. If you took the best of the best and read all the content on Muntradamus.NET, you will have a majority of the:

BRIAN MCCANN – NYY
2015: 14 HR/55 RBI/.259 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #8

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.19.50 PMMcCann was a clear target of the draft strategy. A catcher that was going after the names of Yan Gomes and Devin Mesoraco, I told VIP members to wait for those names to pass by and then jump on McCann. With 14 HR and 55 RBIs, he is putting up a Buster Posey type of season. Minus the batting average.

MARK TEIXEIRA – NYY
2015: 22 HR/60 RBI/.240 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #36

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.19.39 PMEasily the best call of the Fantasy Baseball Sports world and continuing to look better as the season progresses. Teix is turning back the clock and is on pace to have a historic season as he heads into the ALL-STAR BREAK #1 in the American League in RBIs. This is the 2nd season in a row I have been on my own Island supporting Teix. This season I loved him more than ever as he felt stronger than ever this offseason with his new gluten free diet. There is no price tag you can pay for that type of Fantasy Advice.

DUSTIN PEDROIA – BOS
2015: 9 HR/33 RBI/.306 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #8

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.19.19 PMEveryone gave up hope on Pedroia. I saw him as an excellent source of rare power and RBI potential at the 2B position. Everything was shaping up nicely for a big 2nd half before Pedroia went down. He Despite missing the last few weeks he is only 1 off 2nd Place for HRs at the position. Still a lot of 2nd half of the season left and Pedroia will keep your team fighting in the pack when he is healthy.

CHRIS DAVIS – BAL
2015: 19 HR/52 RBI/.238 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #9

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.23.44 PM

Cover athlete of BEAST DOME. Chris Davis was a vital part of the draft strategy and a MUST-DRAFT player. So far Crush has been on another Crush season with 19 HR and 52 RBI heading into the break. The batting average is not killing you at .240 and his HR potential has yet to reach his ceiling. Last week he had 2 HRs robbed from him, and most importantly he has responded to that with a HR a few days before the break. Chris Davis will still be fighting if not on top of the HR Champion Crown this season. Just wait until he gets Barry Bonds hot.

HANLEY RAMIREZ – BOS
2015: 19 HR/46 RBI/.273 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #3

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.18.33 PMThe first article I wrote for the 2015 Fantasy Baseball season was to take Hanley with the #2 Overall Pick after Mike Trout. Call this my Arian Foster Pick.

HANLEY BEING HANLEY

Hanley Ramirez has been worth the #2 Pick and then some. Not only because Fantasy Sites like ESPN/YAHOO/CBS and every other were promoting Jose Abreu, Paul Goldschmidt, Andrew McCutchen, Clayton Kershaw, Giancarlo Stanton, Miguel Cabrera.

While everyone was doing that. You grabbed Hanley Ramirez. You have a SS who has more HRs than all those players above, minus Stanton. You have a player at a rare position who is on pace for 40+ HRs despite being injured in the 1st Half. You have the player you want, and that is what Makes BEAST DOME the BEAST.

BRETT GARDNER – NYY
2015: 10 HR/42 RBI/15 SB/.302 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #33

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.12.55 PMI wish I could give my #1 Fantasy Spot to Jacoby Ellsbury who I made a vital part of the draft strategy. What I loved about Ellsbury, I also liked about Gardner. He has been filling in very nicely for Jacoby as a Poor Mans version of him, and if you happened to take Brett and Ellsbury, you did not skip too much of a beat.

 

OF

GREGORY POLANCO – PIT
2015: 3 HR/23 RBI/17 SB/.233 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #43

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 11.04.14 PM

Polanco fits the mold of exactly what the Draft Strategy was calling for. A speed OF who fell late, Polanco has been nothing short of a guy who has 45+ SB potential. Those HRs can reach double digits when it is all said and done as well.

 

OF

CURTIS GRANDERSON – NYM
2015: 13 HR/29 RBI/5 SB/.244 AVERAGE
EXPERT AVERAGE: #69

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.11.22 PMNot in love with this pick as my target OF Options all got hit by the injury bug like Holliday and Ellsbury to name a few, but Curtis Granderson has been a great late round snag. The guy is on pace for 25+ HRs and 10+ SBs. What more can you ask for in a late round pick who I was telling all VIPs to grab to fill out your OF.

ALEX RODRIGUEZ – NYY

I had A-Rod much higher at #12 on my Muntradamus.NET Rankings, but my schedule ran out on me as I was launching Franchise on the same day.

The day I heard A-Rod was working with Barry Bonds in the off-season and launched a Spring HR. There was nothing more I needed to see. A-Rod was worth the investment and has been a strong 3B option all season putting up Chris Davis numbers.

EXPERT AVERAGE: #47

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.09.58 PMPineda is not looking like a likely candidate for 20 Wins. He is also looking at a pitcher who will have a K Rate of 9 per 9 INN. Pineda is pitching at a world class level, and he has been a coverman of the BEAST DOME pitching staff since the start of his Yankee career when everyone doubted he would ever be the same.

AJ BURNETT – PIT
2015: 7 WINS/2.11 ERA/100 K
EXPERT AVERAGE: #69

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.09.22 PMWhile everyone was going against AJ Burnett because of his age, I knew he was the heart of the steel city and the Pirates were going to need a big season from their vet in order to compete. So far he is murdering it and AJ Burnett is going superstar mode right before our eyes.

Look for AJ to continue to BEAST the 2nd half of the season as the Pirates make their playoff push.

 

SP #3

YOVANI GALLARDO – TEX
2015: 7 Wins/2.67 ERA/76 K
EXPERT AVERAGE: #93

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.08.25 PMEveryone was doubting Gallardo because of his injury riddled career. I saw Texas as a stop where he could re-birth himself and go Vintage Yovani. So far the Strikeouts have not been their like the past, but he as dominant as ever carrying a Texas Rangers Pitching Staff that is on it’s last arm.

SP #4

CLAY BUCHHOLZ – BOS
2015: 7 WINS/3.26 ERA/107 K
EXPERT AVERAGE: #89

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.07.49 PMClay Buchholz has been everything superstar, and all VIP members were told clearly he is a great starter to get at the end of your draft. This guy is pitching like he is Michael Pineda and drafted for a fraction of the price. Everyone doubted Clay, but I knew he had no choice to be a superstar as the staff Ace for the Red Sox.

SP #5

FRANCISCO LIRIANO – PIT
2015: 5 WINS/2.98 ERA/119 K
EXPERT AVERAGE: #41

Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 4.04.30 PMYou either trust Liriano or you don’t. I decided long ago that I trust Francisco as there are not many that are as electric. The days of inconsistency from Minnesota are long gone, and now you have a stud ace.

The Brewers are not winning games this season until lately, K-Rod has been cleaning up since. As long as there is no yard sale, this pick will continue to look better and better.

BEAST DOME NATION.

My FantasyPros Ranking brought out my inner BEAST MODE last night in Daily Fantasy Baseball as I had 4 entries in the (Day 4) DraftKings Survivor Championship. Knew I had to make a statement with the current BEAST HEDGE and bring home the Green.

http://beasthedge.com/2015/07/survivor/

Along with $30 extra Hedge dollars, I went all in and came out with one of my strongest nights of the baseball season. It is important to keep this momentum rolling moving forward, but now I know what it takes to BEAST on a Daily Basis.

Each member of the Hedge has doubled their money and the Hedge has now reset.

If you want to be part of the BEAST HEDGE that starts again on Monday, or have any questions. Send an e-mail to BEAST@BEASTDOME.com.

Happy 4th of July BEAST DOME NATION.
