The Dongers Club – May 31st – Early

Big early slate for late May, which is awesome for this time of year to have this.


Scattered rain/t-storms in Chicago games, but both should play.



Mitch Keller (DK: $10.8k, FD: $11.2k)

The time of the game in this series has been everything.  Monday was a mid/late afternoon start and Tuesday was a night game and that’s why the scoring was the way that it was.  So with another day game here, I am obviously facing a little risk but Keller’s been this years Dylan Cease in terms of his breakout performance & I have no qualms about getting more juice out of him while we can.



Alex Wood (DK: $6800)

Not a terrible game stack spot to just lock in on both these guys, take a 40+ combined if we get it right and move on.

Dane Dunning (DK: $7500, FD: $8400)

If you have ever clicked on someone and just said over and over, my lord this does not feel right – then I have your guy right here.  I refuse to believe Dunning will be this good all season, but the same can be said for the Tigers offense.



Today is Shane Bieber’s birthday.  How about that!  Happy Birthday Shane, here’s a boring 3 strikeout performance.



Cubbies — Swanson, Happ

Rays — Arozarena, Franco

Steele is NOT the perfect get right SP for the Rays to face, but I am on the lean that we’re going to see another rough outing from him today.  He was unable to get whiffs in his last start and the Rays are another team that should be aggressive in the zone.  Unfortunately, with a lefty starting this means we probably see 9 righties and then maybe some PH in the game to kill your stack on that side.

Meanwhile the Cubs are going to hit 2+ HR off Zach Eflin, so yeah, that’s the team we’re riding first and foremost here.


JD Martinez, Chris Taylor, Mookie Betts

They should and they will end Corbin’s little pitching well streak.  Taylor is the key cheap bat to plug in here to make this fit nice and comfortably.


OAK:  Laureano, Rooker

ATL:  Acuna, Olson, Murphy, Riley

Do we dare bet the sweep for the Athletics?  You’re damn right we do.  But Atlanta isn’t going down without a fight and the offense should start to wake up against Jimmy Kap given his walk struggles and then the bad part of the Oakland pen is going to appear for good in the 6th/7th/8th.  Take Oakland ML to start and then maybe ride Atlanta for a late comeback to avoid the sweep.

In our youth we thought of Second Base as the holy grail that we couldn’t wait to get too.  Now that we are adults we look at Second Base and say, shit, am I really going to consider Chris Owings today?
