FANTASY BASEBALL BEAST OF THE NIGHT Vol. V
BEAST DOME NATION.
A lot of you are Fantasy Football people and have not tuned into my Fantasy Baseball knowledge over the years. With all sports going on at once, I get to show off as I walk my path into the light where I know all my dreams await.
Gerit Cole, yes the highest paid pitcher in Baseball on the New York Yankees Gerit Cole. Is believe it or not, a BEAST DOME Sleeper pitcher from 2017. When nobody was giving Gerit Cole any love in 2017, his breakout season into All-Star discussions, I gave you the Draft Strategy on how to get him no problem at all.
Not sure what I was doing with the title on that one, maybe it was a song reference back then? Regardless, Gerit Cole has come long ways and is now the highest paid pitcher in Baseball, as well as the first pitcher selected on Draft Day in Fantasy Baseball.
After a long weird delay with Coronavirus and the season hanging on by a slight grip. The Yankees and Orioles have kept hope alive and brilliantly scheduled two games to get out of the way. I believe the MLB can make this work with doubleheaders to close out the season for the Phillies/Yankees & Orioles/Marlins. Move some things around at the end, play during an off-day. Do not forget, all these teams face each other multiple times. Can easily play a couple doubleheaders.
For those that worry, well now these teams will not have 60 games completed compared to others. We all know this.
Four extra games for the Phillies and Four extra games for Yankees will matter come playoff seeding. Those games will be played.
Someone obviously messed up with the testing, a horrible rookie mistake.
However, the season goes on and Cole takes the mound as my BEAST OF THE NIGHT.
BEAST OF THE NIGHT PITCHING
Season Stats: (1-0): 6 INN/2 ER/7K
The Orioles offense have a lot of names that do not belong in Major League Baseball. DON’T YOU DARE SAY CHRIS DAVIS! Cole has the stuff that makes him a CY Young Candidate, at least that is what his paycheck will tell you. Cole against the Orioles is why you draft Cole, even on the Road. Expect Gerit Cole to pitch like a Cy Young Candidate.
BEAST OF THE NIGHT HITTING
1-10, 1 Run
Going to double-dip on Miguel Cabrera who is owned in less than 1% of any league. In a favorable matchup against a lefty in Danny Duffy who has not had his best stuff since 2017. Miguel Cabrera is hitting the ball very well, and I like the veteran to remind us one last time that he is the, “Man Of The Tigers House.” Defenses are playing so far back on Miguel, he almost has to hit it out of the ball park to get a hit. Infielders are playing the outfield. Outfielders are playing on the warning track.
Miguel will take it deep!
