This is a little bit of a different sample lineup for us. There’s a couple of darts in Taylor and Margot that really aren’t touched on in the article. Taylor gets a great matchup and Margot is at least in Coors at near minimum price. Fitting all the bats in is challenging and there could still be some value that opens up throughout the day. At least as of now, I’m siding with Arenado in Coors. I still badly want Syndrgaard but it’s tough balancing act right now. I’m terrified of picking the wrong bat and watching Arenado put up a 9.2 while Harper goes bonkers.
This is a day where we’ll need to let the information unfold but also remember the sample lineup performed better yesterday than the change. What would be nice is if we get a couple guys leading off at super cheap prices so we can get up to Syndergaard but Godley is a nice consolation prize. I really like the Diamondbacks tonight and their lineup shifts little bit when they draw a lefty. We’ll see if that’s a spot that we can exploit closer to lock this evening.
