MLB – On the Hill – August 1

I always look forward to the MLB trade deadline with all of the trade speculation involving big names and top prospects changing addresses. It is one of the times during the year that season-long fantasy is at its best. However, it can also have big implications on the daily game, albeit for just a day […]

MLB – On the Hill – July 29

Wednesday night produced some solid picks with Lance McCullers and Gerrit Cole coming in as the top two pitchers of the night but I ended up on the wrong side of the Jimmy Nelson/Archie Bradley matchup. Friday features a 14-game slate (minus the Cubs/Mariners) and has quite a few interesting pitching options to explore. Ace […]

MLB – Industry Expert Consensus – July 27th

Today’s expert consensus list focuses on the nine-game Wednesday night slate where the experts are all over the place on the pitching side tonight with eight pitchers selected by at least three experts. On the hitting side it is all about the Cubs lineup tonight with six Cubs’ hitters on the list. Be sure to […]

MLB – On the Hill – July 27

Well, picking pitchers that are pitching at home didn’t work too well yesterday with only my Darkhorse pick of Bud Norris coming through with a good outing. The nine-game night slate on Wednesday doesn’t have a lot to offer for high-end pitching options but does have a variety of solid middle-level options to choose from. […]

MLB – Industry Expert Consensus – July 26th

Here is the Industry Expert Consensus picks for tonight’s 15-game slate. Without a true ace on the slate, the experts provide a wide variety of pitching options tonight. There is also five different hitter stacks to choose from which should spread out ownership percentages tonight. Also, I have included catchers that were selected by at […]

MLB – On the Hill – July 26

I’m finally back from a long West Coast road trip. Vacation is great but It is good to be home which got me thinking more about giving a little more emphasis on finding pitchers that are pitching at home and are in a favorable matchup. So my recommendations tonight are all pitchers throwing at home. […]

MLB – On the Hill – July 22

Friday night features a full 15-game slate with a lot of solid pitching options to choose from. Here are a few of my favorites. Ace Madison Bumgarner (FD-$11,500 / DK-$13,000) Bumgarner is the highest priced pitcher on the slate today and will get a negative park adjustment going to Yankees Stadium but will face a […]

MLB – On the Hill – July 20

The Wednesday night slate features just seven games and does not have any top line aces to choose and many pitchers with risk. Ace Drew Pomeranz (FD-$10,500 / DK-$10,600) Pomeranz will make his Red Sox debut tonight at home against the Giants. While I expect Pomeranz’s performance to decline overall with the move to Boston […]
