The Daily Degenerate Fantasy Baseball Picks 4/24


We have a day/night split in MLB today and while nothing caught our eye in the day games, the night games have some juicy matchups worth stacking. Look for runs to be scored in BOS/NYY, LAD/PHI and BAL/TOR. Last night we rolled out a Jays stack that rocked and we won our two H2H games by 10 points and cashed four out of five 50/50’s. It was a good night that ended with too many hard ciders. A future liver transplant is scheduled. Thanks Obamacare!


Here’s the Dirty Turban roster we’re rolling with tonight 4/24. 

All values are based on DraftKings pricing.

SP 1 – Jordan Zimmerman, $10,200: We like Kazmir and Haren tonight, but they’re too pricey for your humble-but-nonetheless-handsome Guru. Zimmy is the next best thing as he’ll get 5+ K’s and a win tonight. 

SP – Drew Hutchinson, $6,000: This pick kind of goes against our rule of taking two of the top five starters that night, but Hutchinson is a steal here. Hutch gets the O’s tonight a team he held to four hits and no runs with five strikeouts two weeks ago.  

C – Tim Federowicz, $1,800: Just punting away on catcher tonight to stack elsewhere. Last time we did this Timmy gave us seven points. 

1B – Edwin Encarnacion, $4,300: Yup, we’re stacking Jays again tonight. Pushing our luck? Maybe. However, E5 and the Jays face Bud “I’m No Chuck” Norris. 

2B – Dustin Pedroia, $4,600: A Red Sox stack vs. C.C. Sabathia is another play to consider. CC sucks against right-handers. Pedroia kills lefties. It’s science. 

3B – Brett Lawrie, $3,600: Lawrie has two homers and six RBI in his last two games. Keep it rolling. 

SS – Jose Reyes, $4,400: Give us a leadoff guy that can hit, run, steal and score in a game Vegas likes. 

OF 1 – Jose Batista, $5,200: Joey Bats hasn’t hit a homer in a week. He’ll give us a bomb tonight.  

OF 2 – Melky Cabrera, $5,300: Ride that Jays stack. Melky is on fire and averaging 10+ FPTS a game this season. 

OF 3 – Yasiel Puig, $4,200: Nice price for Man-Bear Puig who is 5/6 with a double, a triple and two steals vs. Phils starter Kyle Kendrick.

Good luck and remember to always check daily lineups and weather conditions.
