DRAFTSTREET UPDATED! 2:54

 

BEAST DOME NATION.

It’s now or never time.  Ask me your fantasy baseball questions as we head towards the end stretch of the season!  Expect a Waiver Wire article coming Saturday night.

 

Ryan Braun: Continues to enjoy his new steroid injection with another HR.  Amazing what a day off to Braun can do with his 3rd HR in two games, since leaving Coors.

Chipper Jones: First he hits HRs on bobble head nights, now he hits HR in back-to-back nights.  He can get streaky hot right now.

Nick Swisher: Hottest power hitter in baseball hitting two HRs on Friday to give him 4 for the week.  Finally.

Paul Konerko: Hits a HR in his first game back.  He is rested.

James McDonald: Remembered how to pitch again against the Cardinals of all team with a 6 INN shutout.  He hasn’t pitched that well since July 7th allowing only 1 ER in 7 INN.

Giancarlo Stanton: Hits his 2nd HR in as many games in Coors.  Jose Reyes joined the action.

Pedro Alvarez: Stays hot with two hit games, big weekend ahead for him.

Curtis Granderson: GW gives Granderson the reverse Physcology in the chat to get Granderson going.  Works every time.

Ryan Ludwick: Still has his big power stroke going with 4 HRs in the last 7 games.

B.J. Upton: Ready for a HUGE weekend.  Is what I said Thursday night, hit a HR off of Weaver is a good sign moving forward.

Prince Fielder & Miguel Cabrera: Is the most lethal Mini-Stack in all of DraftStreet.

Todd Frazier: Who I put as the cover man of my predicted 2nd half Waiver Wire All-Stars is not disappointing.  Second time this week he has hit a HR and SB in the same game.  Easy rookie of the year in the NL over Bryce Harper if he keeps it up.

 

 

 

Ask me any fantasy questions about players.

STACK OF THE DAY (AUGUST 18th)

**NEW. NEW. I pick the stack of the day, you pick the hitters and see the points rally up.

Week 20 Average Fantasy Points Per Game: 19.1

Stack of the Day:

OAKLAND

Corey Kluber gets bombed everywhere he goes, I expect Oakland to do work at home where they score double digit runs often.

 

*The More BEAST DOME icons I see all-around DRAFTSTREET, the more info I will publish publicly.  If you want a team e-mailed use the BEAST DOME icon, and e-mail [email protected] saying you’ve uploaded the icon and want a team.

 

BET OF THE DAY (August 18th:)

 

Week 12: 6-1

Week 13: 5-2

Week 14: 3-4

Week 15: 1-2

Week 16: 4-3

Week 17: 5-2

Week 18: 5-2

Week 19 : 4-3

Week 20: 3-0

OAK MONEY LINE

Go with what keeps working, and Bartolo Colon is already a lights out performance more likely than not.  Hard to believe I would be saying that to end August.  Corey Kluber gets knocked around harder than Zach McAllister, so I like the A’s to continue to do damage.
