The Dongers Club – August 3rd (Early)

I didn’t have much of a feel for the four early games yesterday (Wednesday), so coming back today with a bonus 2-article Thursday — which feels weird to say considering I hate Thursday MLB DFS, but here we are.

Oh look.  Brady Singer is pitching for the team with the longest win streak in Major League Baseball.

Still very clear


MAX SCHERZER — DK: $10,400 | FD: $10,500 …

This stinks folks.  We should have gotten lucky with Max on a big 15 game slate against a better team where he might be pretty low owned.  But on a four gamer vs the White Sox he should be near highest owned on the slate and I think he is going to SMASH in Texas….

Why?  Two words…  Mike Maddux.  That’s right.  Immediately Max had a bullpen with his new pitching coach, the famous Mike Maddux, and immediately Maddux had him make one quick change on something he was struggling with and it immediately paid off in the bullpen.  Now, let’s see if it translates out onto the field but doing this vs the RH heavy White Sox should not hurt.

BRADY SINGER — DK: $7400 | FD: $8000 …

We’re Back!  Back on the Singer bandwagon and I don’t wanna hear anything about it, because September has come early for the Royals win streak this year as they’ve reeled off 5 in a row and the Mets, well, they’re done.  Send those vets home and call up some more prospects folks.



  • Jack Flaherty makes his AL/Orioles debut in Toronto
  • Kevin Gausman is a no go compared to Max for me.  Not even close for me, but yes, Gausman will have 8+ strikeouts.  Max will too.



Witt, Melendez, Perez, Massey

The Royals young kids are acting like it’s September Baseball right now and playing well over the last week.  Led by Witt, they’ve gotten some clutch hitting and should be able to get at least one string of hits together in an inning early against Carrasco.


Marte, Gurriel, Walker, Kelly

Eventually the Diamondbacks are going to explode here.  The price on Gurriel is worth jumping all over and Walker fills into a good role today behind him (hopefully).

Good Over Upside — Meaning these have best potential to go way over…

  • DBacks/Giants

Good Under Upside — Meaning best potential to be a 2-1 or 5-2 type game.

  • White Sox/Rangers
