(VIDEO) Jack White Throws Out First Pitch…To Santa

Who knew that former White Striper, rockin’ Raconteur and plank spanker Jack White was such a huge baseball fan. First he was spotted really enjoying a Cubs game and Tuesday night he threw out the first pitch at Comerica Park in his hometown of Detroit.

Jack White threw tonight's first pitch to Santa!

Not sure why Santa Claus was there, but maybe this is the year he delivers a World Series to the Motor City.

The Daily Degenerate Fantasy Baseball Picks 7/29

aacash2

I don’t mean to just go on and on about my fake teams – that’s about as interesting as your girlfriend trying to tell you about The Bachelorette finale. However, your humble-but-nonetheless-handsome Guru has had an up and down month. A terrible cold streak turned into a heater only to just break even on the month thus far. Let’s look to wrap up July with a win as I’m sick of just throwing money away.

Want to play with the Dirty Turban crew on DraftKings tonight? Click this link. Here’s your dirty turbaned Guru’s team for Tuesday 7/29. Good luck, cheers.

All values are based on DraftKings pricing.

SP 1 – James Shields, $8,400: Big Game James burned us a couple weeks ago, but the price is right for a starter with a 2.03 ERA and 28 Ks in his last four starts.

SP 2 – Trevor Bauer, $6,500: This is a roll of the dice and I can’t blame anyone that wants to pay up for Stephen Strasburg or Cole Hamels, but to fit in the big bats we want you have to find a way to save. Bauer seems a good cheap buy as he’s averaged 22 FPTS over his last four starts and has been very good at home with 48 Ks in 44 innings this season.

C – Stephen Vogt, $3,800: Vogt’s price is creeping up, but he’s still worth it. Vogt has 14 hits and six RBI over his last 10 games and a .415 wOBA against right-handed pitching.

1B – Brandon Moss, $5,100: Our A’s stack fell a little short last night so let’s double down on the team that leads the league in runs scored and RBI. 19 of Moss’ 23 homers have come against right-handed pitching this year and he’s your Guru’s Dong of the Night.

2B – Ryan Goins, $2,400: Goins had himself a night in Boston Monday with four hits, four RBI and 24 FPTS. Give us half that against the Sox struggling rookie Rubby De La Rosa and it’s a successful punt.

3B – Josh Donaldson, $5,100: Another piece of the swingin’ A’s stack attack. Dongaldson has hits in nine of his last 10 games and double digit FPTS in six of his last 10. The sharks in Vegas have the A’s as the biggest favorite on the board and scoring 5+ runs.

SS – Ramon Santiago, $2,500: Punt play alert, just make sure he’s in the lineup. Ramon does have FPTS in eight of his last 10 starts.

OF 1 – Jose Bautista, $5,700: Joey Bats has averaged 20+ FPTS over his last six games and faces a struggling Sox staff at Fenway Park where he’s hit 18 homers in 42 games .

OF 2 – Yoenis Cespedes, $5,400: The final piece of our A’s double down stack. Yoenis has 12 hits over his last nine games with three homers and 10 RBI.

OF 3 – Melky Cabrera, $4,900: The Melk Man went double dong last night with one bomb smashing through the windshield of a Sox fan’s SUV across the street from Fenway. Cabrera has been hot with 18 hits and 15 RBI over his last 10 games and the Fenway Faithful may want to just take the T.
Make sure to check the lineups, give a look at the weather and buy me a Mojito with your winnings.

(VIDEO) Bartolo Colon is a Professional Athlete

420-pound, 41-year-old New York Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon has a secret to his success: His pregame stretching regiment.

Seems to be working. Fartolo threw 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball Monday night as the Mets beat the Phils 7-1.

(PHOTO) Rockies Give Away 15k ‘Tulowizki’ Jerseys #Fail

The Colorado Rockies gave away 15,000 Troy Tulowitzki jerseys to their loyal fans over the weekend. The only problem is they misspelled their star shortstops name.

Nice work, Rockies. Spelling is hard. Now may be the time to lay off that Rocky Mountain green bud.
