It’s Thirsty Thursday, my daily degenerates. Someone get me a mojito! It’s been a successful week thus far as your humble-but-nonetheless-handsome Guru has come out of the cold streak and recouped most of the pre-All Star break losses. I’m one step closer to a winter of fun in the sun, thong watching and one giant mojito. We’re going to need more limes!
What’s up with these split slates, MLB? It’s another day of early games and seven games this evening. While I have a couple roster entries this afternoon, let’s focus on tonight’s games on DraftKings. Want to take on the Dirty Turban Crew in a 20 team 50/50? Hit this link.
Here’s your dirty turbaned Guru’s team for Thursday 7/24. Good luck, cheers.
All values are based on DraftKings pricing.
SP 1 – Corey Kluber, $9,000: Why no love for Kluber today? The last time he faced the Royals he went 8.1 innings of 4-hit ball with 10 K’s. Want to pay up? It’s Max Scherzer, but he’s $$$.
SP 2 – Matt Garza, $7,700: Since the start of June, Garza has an ERA just over 3.00 and has held hitters to a .230 batting average. He gets the K happy Mets today and I’m all in on the Brew Crew.
C – Jonathan Lucroy, $4,500: It’s an ol’ Milwaukee stack today and Lucroy has to be in the middle of it. Yan Gomes is also in play tonight.
1B – Jose Abreu, $5,200: Abreu has crushed rightiesto the tune of 22 homers and a .629 SLG%. He’s been battling a bad back and has yet to homer since the break. That changes tonight as the Cuban Crusher is your Guru’s Dong of the Night. Freddie Freeman is a cheaper option.
2B – Richie Weeks, $3,500: With Scooter Gennett battling a quad injury, Weeks gets the start at a moderate price. Here’s hoping he’s hitting near the top of the Brewers lineup tonight. If you’re looking to spend Brian Dozier looks to be in a good spot.
3B – Aramis Ramirez, $4,400: Stack. Brewers. Win. $$$$.
SS – Jose Ramirez, $2,000: Jose should get the start as Asdrubal Cabrera battles a back injury. $ure, it’s a punt, but Jose did have two hits last night and 10 FPTS.
OF 1 – Ryan Braun, $5,900: Is Braun heating up or back on the juice? Who cares, he has 17 hits over his last 10 games and can inject bull semen directly into his brain stem if it wins me $$$.
OF 2 – Carlos Gomez, $4,800: Cargo-lite has a .384 wOBA at home, is averaging 9+ FPTS over his last five games an closes out our Brewers stack tonight. I’ll be praying to my Cecil Cooper bobblehead the $tack comes through tonight.
OF 3 – Moises Sierra, $2,300: Total up$ide punt play as Sierra is hitting .344 (8/16) with a double, a homer and five RBI against Twins starter Phil Hughes.
Make sure to check the lineups, give a look at the weather and buy me a mojito with your winnings.
