[Game Preview] Week 13 - Philadelphia Eagles(5-6) vs. Miami Dolphins (2-9)

Philadelphia Eagles (5-6) vs Miami Dolphins(2-9)
The Eagles got a Thanksgiving Day gift from the Bills when they defeated the Cowboys on Thursday to give the Eagles control of their playoff destiny. If the Eagles win out they will win the NFCE and the division for the first time since 2017. The Eagles should have an easy path to win their 5 remaining games as they have the weakest remaining schedule in the league starting with the 2-9 Dolphins. The Dolphins traded away multiple key players this offseason as they looked to stockpile draft picks and build towards the future. With that said, the Dolphins still upset the Jets and Colts in November and are still playing hard for rookie head coach Brian Flores, so the Eagles would be wise not overlook their last remaining non-divisional game of the season. At the helm of the Dolphins is veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick who has had success against the Eagles in the past, including last season when he threw for 402 yards and 4 TDs when he was leading the Buccaneers. Fitzpatricks has two dangerous weapons in speedy WR Devante Parker and big TE Mike Gesicki. The Eagles have been shutting down opposing QBs since week 8, as they have allowed the fewest yards to opposing offenses in that time and the 3rd lowest QB rating. The Dolphins problems will be compounded as they released starting RB Mark Walton on November 19th following his arrest for punching his pregnant girlfriend. On the other side of the ball the Dolphins have had a historically bad defense having surrendered at least 30 points in 7 of their 11 games this season. The Eagles should also get a boost as Brooks, Johnson, Jeffrey and Agholor are all slated to suit up after missing last game week against the Seahawks. The combination should be just want Carson Wentz and the Eagles need to get back on track after dropping back to back games at home. If the Eagles offense can get going early and get Carson in a rhythm, the Eagles should be able to move the ball and up points on a way to win. Go Birds!

Dolphins 20 – Eagles 19
The Eagles jumped out to an early lead and looked prime to take a win, but Sam Bradford left the game with an injured shoulder and Chip Kelly’s defense floundered in the 2nd half are they were left out to dry by the offense. Ryan Tannehill had a deflected pass ended up in the hands of Jarvis Landry for the go-ahead score early in the fourth quarter, and the defense made it hold up to snap Miami's two-game losing streak.

Matchups to Watch
A stoppable force meets a moveable object (Eagles Offense vs Miami Defense)
The Eagles offense has quickly become a garbage tier unit over the course of the season showing it's ugly head in the loss to Seattle last week. It's a bad unit, and Wentz is now playing bad in it. It's not all his fault; for long stretches of the season he was one of the few bright spots on the unit. But he's pressing needing to be perfect to make up for talent and coaching deficits. Philly gets a cupcake matchup against a rebuilding Dolphins defense that is on a historic pace so far this season to end as one of the worst defenses in DVOA history - a total moveable object. This is a get right game for the Eagles, but could be one for the Dolphins defense if Philly isn't careful. Miami is starting a ton of new players throughout the team as well as guys in the secondary that weren't even on the team or in their current position to start the season. While they have a severe lack of talent on the team, they don't lack in effort and coaching. If the Eagles come into this one lacking urgency, they could face a shocking upset. Everyone should expect the Eagles to have an easier time putting up points in this contest even with their struggles given the Dolphins situation it's just a matter of if they do it. Philly should have Brandon Brooks and Lane Johnson for this contest which will help the offense greatly. Alshon may return, but he was scheduled to last week and didn't so who knows. Agholor should return, which is a good thing for Miami. Zach Ertz popped up on the injury report this week with a hamstring injury suffered against the Seahawks; if he isn't able to go for the Eagles, things could get dicey. Ertz is still the Eagles most reliable receiver. Goedert is capable of stepping up into a lead role in the short term but has yet to take a measureable jump forward in his career so far this season. Losing Ertz would be a big blow. Lots of question marks for the Eagles offense in this one, but this is an opponent they should still be able to handle.
Dolphins Offensive Line vs Eagles Pass Rush
The Eagles pass rush has been steadily improving this season and is coming off one of their best games of the season last week against Seattle. This isn't a unit that is as good as its 2017 version, but is still a unit that can wreck a game. As mentioned previously, Miami is going through a total rebuild, and the offensive line hasn't been spared in that tear down. Stud Left Tackle Laremy Tunsil was traded to Houston prior to the start of the season. The Dolphins didn't have anyone else close that level of talent on the offensive line and the unit is now considerably weaker. The coaching staff on this Dolphins team has done an incredible job this year in spite of the tank, but sometimes pure talent wins out. Philly's defensive line, lead by Fletcher Cox, should be able to cause a lot of disruption this week. Miami enters with one of the worst rushing attacks in the NFL. Part of that is due to their RBs, but a big reason for that is due to their offensive line. Jim Schwartz loves to take away an opponents run game and should be able to do that from the start on Sunday. Philly's defensive front has always been great at defending the run and should be expected to again on Sunday. Against the pass, the Eagles should be expected to win here as well. Per PFF, Miami has the worst offensive line by Pass Blocking Efficiency in the NFL. Cox, Graham, and the rest of the bunch, should be able to get a lot of pressure on Fitz in this contest.
Dolphins Receivers vs Eagles Secondary
Philadelphia's pass defense has been better of late largely due to getting healthy for the time since the Hoover Administration. I do think a lot of praise the secondary is getting is off the mark since receivers are still getting open and mistakes are still being made, but the entire unit as a whole has done enough to win... more than the offense can say. Miami is short on weapons but does have players that can make plays if the Eagles aren't careful. DeVante Parker is having the best season of his career so far, which is hilarious given the current state of the Dolphins roster. While he isn't a top flight receiver, he can make plays on the ball. He's athletic enough to burn Jalen Mills (who isn't?) and has ball skills that Darby could only dream of. Even during this good defensive stretch by the Eagles, we've seen this secondary get beat. Parker is more than capable of making plays against this secondary. Albert Wilson is a gadget receiver but typically really good in his career of creating after the catch. While that hasn't been the case this year for him, it only takes one mistake for him to capitalize. Overall, this is a weak group of receivers the Dolphins have, just like the rest of their roster. But considering the state of said roster, they are well coached and play very hard. We've seen Ryan Fitzpatrick torch this Eagles defense as early as last year; this is a matchup the Eagles should be expected to win but they must show up for it. I have little doubt about the defenses ability to do just that - compared to the offense - but we've seen this team do inexplicably dumb things this year.

The Early Slate
A fun 5 game slate. Some good pitchers. Some good stacks. Should be a fun day. For those that are new to baseball, today are tomorrow are what’s called “getaway days.” That signifies an end of a series, where one or both of the teams are going to have to travel or “get away.” Because of that, the MLB schedule generally has only night games on Mondays and Tuesdays as teams start a series. On Wednesdays and Thursdays when series are finishing there will generally be 2 slates. One early slate and one late. Most getaway days will be like this. Then most Fridays are all night games. And weekends you’ve seen - a split day on Saturday, with most games on Sunday going off at 1 and 4 with one single Sunday night game. So let’s dive in to the first early slate on the first getaway day of this season!
Pitchers (in chronological order, basically)
Great Pitchers
Aaron Nola (10200, RHP) at WAS - Nola is in the category of “Potential Cy Young winners that you can play every day.” Let’s look at the numbers from last season. 33 GS, 212.1 IP, 224 K, 2.37 ERA, 3.01 FIP, 0.975 WHIP. Phenomenal stuff. He had 17 starts over 100 pitches and 16 under 100 pitches. 12% of fly balls against him were Infield Flies. I mean, dude had a 10.5 WAR. There are very few pitchers in the entire sport of baseball that are better than Aaron Nola. I can’t state that enough. Every single time he pitches, he is a viable play. I mean, sure Washington is a good team with a good lineup. But Nola is a beast and I feel like the public just doesn’t know that well enough yet. Plus, he gets a Nats lineup that will be missing Trea Turner due to a broken index finger, suffered from a HBP yesterday. His replacement is Wilmer Difo, which is like replacing a steak with a big mac - or, if you’re vegan, i’m sorry (i’m kidding, don’t send letters.)
German Marquez (9900, RHP) at TB - Marquez, like Nola, is a fantastic pitcher who gets ignored. It’s easy to ignore someone that pitches for the Rockies, but he is a legit ace. He had a K/9 of almost 11. He had an FIP of 3.40 as a starter that started predominantly in Coors. He is also someone with incredible home/away splits (something you really need to look at for Rockies players). He is decent at home, sure, but he is absolutely lights-out away from Coors. Now we get him in an extreme pitchers park in TB. Sign me up. What’s even more fun? He will be completely overlooked tomorrow with people going above and below him, price-wise.
Charlie Morton (8800, RHP) vs COL - This is one of those pitchers whose price and pedigree will make it so that people sleep on Marquez. But, to a degree, that’s ok. Cause Morton is a fucking awesome pitcher who can strike out a ton of people taking on a Rockies team that’s hitting worse than the BLUE JAYS lately. They can’t stop getting shut out. He doesn’t allow baserunners or runs. He has a K/9 of almost 11. And he’s way underpriced here. Don’t overthink this one, regardless of how chalky he is (and I expect him to be extremely chalky).
Good Pitchers, Bad Spots
Luis Castillo (8100, RHP) vs MIL - Castillo is a fantastic pitcher that can be as hit or miss as it gets. When he is on, he looks unhittable and will rack up double digit Ks. We saw that Castillo on opening day when, on a short leash, he struck out 8 in 5.2 IP. The thing with Castillo, though, is he is an extreme splits pitcher. That means he is absolutely dominant against RHB but has a lot of trouble with LHB. This is going to be a big problem against this MIL lineup that features a bunch of LH power from top to bottom. This is one of those situations (like almost anyone that would be in this category or the GPP category) where I advise, if doing MME, you get exposure to both Castillo AND the MIL Lefties.
GPP Plays
Freddy Peralta (7500, RHP) at CIN - I don’t love Peralta, but I do know enough about him to know that he is a dangerous pitcher with a ton of upside that is absolute murder on RHB. If you look at his first game, he came out of the gate really shaky, giving up a HR to Goldie right after walking Carpenter. He then hit the next hitter before getting Ozuna to ground into a fielder’s choice. Ozuna then came around on a double by Yadi Molina. Peralta lost Fowler on a 3-2 pitch before the pitching coach came out, settled Peralta down, and he struck out the next 2 batters. Over the next couple of innings, he gave up a single to Goldy, a double to Ozuna, another walk to Fowler, and then started off the 4th giving up a cheap knock to the opposing pitcher on an 0-2 count and another hit to Carpenter on an 0-2 count before being pulled. To me, knowing Peralta is someone that has trouble with LHB but is absolute murder on RHB, that seems like someone who might have had the first-start jitters and, after being unable to settle in, was given a quick hook. I would expect, against a much less imposing Reds lineup Peralta will have more success. There’s a couple tough Lefties there, sure (more on that later), but he should also be able to get himself more than a couple easy strikeouts and put up a high enough score to pay this salary today.
Anibal Sanchez (5900, RHP) vs PHI - This is not a play for the weak stomached among you. Sanchez is someone who had been coming off pretty terrible 2016 and 2017s. He was 7-13 with a 5.87 ERA in 2016 and 3-7 with a 6.41 ERA in 2017. Both years he was removed as a starter and placed in the bullpen. Last year, the Braves took a chance on him and, for the most part, he came through. He got a 7-6 record with 2.83 ERA in 24 starts, racking up 136.2 IP and 135 Ks. The deeper stats tell of someone who had a bit of a 2nd wind year, though, and not a complete renaissance. His FIP was 3.62, nearly a full point more than his ERA. This is in stark contrast to 16/17, when Sanchez’ FIP was significantly lower. This shows just how important defense is behind certain pitchers. Fortunately for Sanchez, he will be playing in front of one of the best Ds in the MLB, according to fangraphs projections. Though that would be different without Trea. His WHIP was 1.08 which is the lowest it’s ever been in his career. His H/9 was 7.0 which was the lowest in his career. We are going have to see how age and a completely new set of teammates and coaches treats Sanchez. He could be someone we regularly pick on (if he is 2016-17 Sanchez) or someone we can get for value (if he pitches like last year). This early in the season, I’m all for taking a chance on him at this price, especially since it’s only a 5 game slate. Also, playing him with any other pitcher would pretty much allow us to fit in any bat we wanted on this slate. Even if he has a mediocre game, that might give us enough points to take down a GPP.
Carlos Rodon (7000, LHP) at CLE - This is a play that is going to sneak under the radar because people don’t realize that CLE is a shell of the offense it was last year without Lindor at the top of the order. He will be back soon enough, I’m sure. And the pitching is more than enough to make up for any offensive deficiencies. But, that being said, they are real, real weak right now. And they get a kid in Rodon who was a top prospect with lightning stuff and huge upside that could never find enough control to make the jump to the next level. His first start was good, though, suffering a tough luck loss against a KC team that got a fantastic start from Keller that day. He still went 5.1 IP, only allowing 3 hits with 1 walk and getting 6 Ks. Another thing going for him? He’s a reverse splits pitcher who will only see 1 LHB in this Indians lineup. Like I said, this is a kid that will go overlooked today, but he has all the upside in the world. And he could make good on that against a poor Indians team.
**Batters **
Stacking Opportunities (in no particular order)
Brewers vs Castillo (RHP, @CIN) The Brewers get to travel to Great American Smallpark for a tough matchup against Castillo. Well a tough matchup for their RHB. For the LHB? Time to eat at low ownership!! Just last season, Castillo gave up an OPS of .587 to RHB and .882 to LHB. You have to go there if you can. Like I said earlier, this is a spot where, if you MME, you should have some shares of Castillo and some shares of MIL LHB.
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 8
Chalk Level (1-10): 3
Preferred Stack: Full or Mini - LHB ONLY
Preferred Players: Yelich (OF - 5500), Shaw (1B/3B - 4300), Moustakas (2B - 4600), Grandal (C - 4100)
Phillies vs Sanchez (RHP, @WAS) - I did a full write up of Sanchez above. As I mentioned, he is coming off a good year preceded by 2 horrific years. If he pitches like the horrific Sanchez, Phillies are gonna score 10 runs in the first 3 innings. One thing to note - Sanchez shows reverse splits, so you can prioritize RHB and separate yourself from the field.
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 5
Chalk Level (1-10): 9
Preferred Stack: Full
Preferred Players: If you are stacking this, you are going all in. So start at the top and work down. So - McCutchen (OF - 3800), Segura (SS - 3700), Bryce (OF - 4500), Hoskins (1B - 4100), Realmuto (C - 3800), etc..
Royals vs Gibson (RHP, MIN) - Kyle Gibson will finally be making his 1st start this season, after Berrios made his 2nd. That should tell you that this is a 31 year old we shouldn’t expect all too much out of (although he had a good year last year.) Last season, he had a FIP of 4.13, which was decent, but his WHIP of 1.302 was not. He gave up a ton of walks. So much so, if he had given up his career level of H/9, he would have had a WHIP of 1.44. He also gives up a decent amount of HR, meaning he is someone we are going to be able to stack against every time he pitches, for the most part. Today we get KC in the lucky spot. It’s worth noting a couple of things - 1st, before last season, when he had a K/9 of 8.2, he had never been over 6.9. I expect him to go back down under 7. All the better to help keep rallies going. Second, he is a normal splits pitcher, so make sure you prioritize LHB against him.

Preferred Players: Whit (2B/OF - 4900), Mondesi (SS - 5100), Soler (OF - 3900), O’Hearn (1B - 3900), Duda (1B - 4100), etc..
Twins vs Homer Bailey (RHP, @KC) - Homer Bailey is one of the worst pitchers in baseball. This stack is going to be chalk and I don’t care. Bailey is entering his age 33 season and, if it’s anything like his age 32 season, he will be unemployed before long and Ian Kennedy will be next up to work his way towards unemployment. Bailey had an FIP of 5.55 last season with a WHIP of 1.636. He gave up 11.9 H/9 and a horrific 1.9 H9. He’s also equally bad against RHP and LHP, but extra horrible against LHP when it comes to slugging, so play every single LHP that you can against him.

One-Off Batters
Reds Lefties - Writing this at 1am, it’s hard to know exactly who is going to start. I assume that we will get Winkler (OF - 3700), Votto (1B - 4000), Barnhart (C - 3300), and Schebler (OF - 3900). It should be noted, though - Schebler is a reverse splits hitter, meaning he is better against LHP. Also, Barnhart is a much better hitter as a Righty meaning he is also better against LHP. I wouldn’t mind taking a chance on any one of them (or a 2 or 3 person mini stack). Though, again, Peralta is a tough pitcher who can have a lights-out game if everything is going right.
Rhys Hoskins (1B - 4900) - Hoskins is my favorite batter on this slate. He is an extreme reverse splits hitter going against a reverse splits pitcher. If you’re doing that math at home, that means Hoskins is going to get you a HR today. EVEN IF YOU PLAY SANCHEZ he is cheap enough you can ALSO play Hoskins and still have a GPP winning lineup.
HR CALL OF THE SLATE: Rhys Hoskins
Main Slate
This is a lot more tricky than this afternoon. Very few pitching options. A TON of stacks we will want to play. It will be interesting to see how you all decide to attack it. I will focus on 2 pitchers and make lineups with them and a bunch of different stacks around them.
Pitchers (in chronological order, basically)
Great Pitchers
Jameson Taillon (7900, RHP) vs STL - I know he didn’t have the best start of his career against the Reds on Opening Day, but I stand by what I said about him that day - he is a legit ace and will be a top 10 pitcher for the Cy Young this year. He has talent. He has drive. And he’s getting better. A 3.20 ERA with a similarly impressive 3.46 FIP. A 1.178 WHIP. A K/9 of 8.4. A H9 of 0.9. 20 of his 32 starts were QS. SO-BB is 16.9%. I mean, I could just go on, but I’m just reading off amazing stats he put up. This isn’t the easiest lineup to face in the Cards, but apart from Carpenter and Goldie, he shouldn’t have much trouble getting through these guys while racking up the Ks.
Gerrit Cole (11400, RHP) at TEX - As I have said a bunch of times now, Cole is my pick for Cy Young in the AL this year. He is a great pitcher and getting greater. He doesn’t walk anyone. He barely gives up any hits. He strikes out a ton of people (Opening Day he got 10 K in 6 IP). If he goes longer today (or even if he doesn’t) we can almost guarantee double digit Ks. You can’t say that about a lot of people. If you are new to DFS, you may be shocked to hear that pitchers will reach the 13-14k range eventually. Cole is still laughably underpriced due to how early it is in the season. I don’t care if he’s 75% owned and you are playing GPP, if you are doing one lineup and you don’t play Cole on this slate you should just burn your money instead. If you do MME, feel free to not have in some lineups, obviously. But don’t get cute here.
No Thanks
Nate Eovaldi (9000, RHP) at OAK - While you might be surprised when looking at Nate Eovaldi and his electric, 100-mph stuff, he doesn’t strike people out. He has the lowest K/9 of anyone on the Red Sox staff, hovering around 8 K/9. Which isn’t terrible. He’s just overpriced for a road matchup against a dangerous OAK team. I spent a long time debating whether to put him as a GPP play or make a stack recommendation out of Oakland that I didn’t really like. Then I realized I can just not play anyone from here, minus a one off or two...
Batters
Stacking Opportunities (in no particular order)
Pirates vs Miles Mikolas (RHP, STL) - On Opening Day, I recommended that you stack against Mikolas, even though it wouldn’t be popular to do so. I talked about how his success comes from control and some luck and, if he loses a little of either of that, he could have a terrible day. I mean, the dude only walked 25 people last season unintentionally. That’s insane. Well he’s already up to 1, on top of the 5 ER he gave up in 5 IP. Like I said, if he isn’t immaculate in his control, he is going to get hammered. So why not take the bet that someone won’t be perfect, when everyone else would be on him. Especially when people talk about his success and the story and the narrative and the control and ignore the fact he also gave up the most hits in the majors. I mean, come on. Learn to recognize a mirage quickly, folks, or prepare to get lost in the desert.
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 9
Chalk Level (1-10): 3
Preferred Stack: Full - LHB preferred/Reverse Splits RHB
Preferred Players: The following batters are LHB/SH or Reverse Splits RHB - Frazier (2B - 3900), Dickerson (OF - 4300), Bell (1B - 3900), Melky (OF - 3800), Kang (3B/SS - 4200), Marte (OF - 4700), Gonzalez (SS - 3700)
Braves vs Jon Lester (LHP, CHC) - Another really sneaky stack here that I know that people won’t be on, cause they overrate Jon Lester and may not realize how annoying the Braves lineup is. In 2017, people worried about Lester and his 4.33 ERA. But, much like a lot of pitchers, this was somewhat bad luck as his FIP was 4.10. Not great, but still lower than his ERA. He also had a 9.0 K/9, though you could see a lot of the other peripheral stats worsening. In 2018, even though his ERA was 3.32, like i said before, his FIP was more than a run higher- 4.39. That’s really bad. His WHIP was 1.310, which is bad. This is reflected in his 8.6 H/9 and his 3.2 BB/9, the highest it had been since 2011. The real concerning stat, though, is his K/9 dropped from 9.0 to 7.4. The lowest since he was 24 years old in 2008. The AL East in 2008 is a lot different than last year’s NL Central, though. When a pitcher is striking out less and walking more, we can see the writing on the wall. Especially when he is 35. He is someone we can play occasionally (some lineups are horrible against lefties, some are the Marlins). But the high walks and the low Ks is something that worries me. Oh. Also- Lester can’t throw to first base (or has a lot of trouble doing it). So you can also prioritize people who can steal a base against him. Last thing- Lester is a lefty. He gave up a .250 BA to righties last year and a .279 BA to Lefties. He gave up a .696 OPS to Righties and a .878 OPS to Lefties. This is pretty extreme reverse splits and you need to focus on taking lefties against Lester when everyone else doesn’t realize this fact.

Preferred Stack: Full - LHB preferred
Preferred Players: Freeman (1B - 4600), Inciarte (OF - 3900), Markakis (OF - 3700), Acuna (OF - 4800), Donaldson (3B - 4600), Albies (2B/SS - 4300), McCann (C - 3700)
Cubs vs Teheran (RHP, @ATL) - Much like Jon Lester, Teheran can’t get LHB out. While that mattered less on Opening Day against a predominantly RH Phillies lineup, it WILL matter a lot when the Cubs come to town. Teheran is an ace. But he’s like a diva ace. He’s very temperamental. He’ll show up, but he doesn’t always show up. And, with the built-in problems he has against LHB, I will have to take the chance of stacking here, though, at 7000, he is absolutely a GPP play given his upside. Just don’t expect anything out of him. And do not waste a single lineup spot on a -EV chance.

Preferred Stack: Full or Mini - LHB greatly preferred
Preferred Players: Rizzo (1B - 4900), Zobrist (2B/OF - 3900), Schwarber (OF - 4600), Bryant (3B/OF - 4700), Baez (SS - 5300)
Astros vs Mike Minor (LHP, @TEX) - Oh boy. Not only do we get an Astros team that absolutely murders LHP, we get them against Mike Minor - someone who doesn’t strike anyone out and gives up more homers than the Fox Outlet during a clearance sale. This is probably going to be the chalkiest stack of the night. And it should be.
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 10
Chalk Level (1-10): 10
Preferred Stack: Full
Preferred Players: Start at the top and work your way down - Springer (OF - 4900), Altuve (2B - 5200), Bregman (3B/SS - 5400), Brantley (OF - 4300), Correa (SS - 4800), etc...
Red Sox vs Marco Estrada (RHP, @OAK) - All these amazing road teams, guaranteed 9 times at bat, in great spots. It really is an embarrassment of riches for a 5 game slate. Estrada is a terrible pitcher. Sure he’ll have some great days. But the odds are thin one of those will come against this Red Sox team. I should also note, he is an extreme reverse splits pitcher, so stock up on RHB where everyone else will play the LHB. Also, and most importantly, Estrada gives up more homers than a Classics professor passing out her reading material for the semester.

Dodgers vs Derek Holland (LHP, SF) - Another great offense going against a horrible pitcher. This time we get LAD vs Derek Holland, someone who is lucky to have a job. If this was a 24 team league, he would either be in AAA or retired. The Dodgers are dangerous against everyone, although more potent against RHP, which is a slight knock to them. Also, they are home where most of the other stacks are away, meaning we are going to miss out on a whole inning of AB from them, which could be a tiebreaker to consider. Still, they are going against Derek Holland who gives up more homers than Lieutenant Gigot (look it up).

One-Off Batters
Kendrys Morales (1B - 3800), Grossman (OF - 3400), Profar (1B/2B - 3700) - While I wouldn’t take this as far as a 3 person stack, I wouldn’t mind playing 2 of these dudes tonight, especially Grossman at 3400 who should be batting leadoff. Eovaldi has a lot of trouble with LHB and these 3 are annoying enough that they can give him fits tonight. They are all also cheap as hell, which, honestly, we need desperately tonight given how expensive everything is.
HR CALL OF THE SLATE: George Springer
Alright everyone! That does it for an awesome day of MLB. Now for a giant NBA slate! I better get to work. It’s only 2am after all! I’ll eat and sleep when I’m dead. Or in a couple of weeks :D.

Game Notes (SPs, Vegas Lines, Weather)
With the advent of my website, I will be handling this a little differently. It’s MUCH MUCH easier for me to just do all this on a spreadsheet to display on the site, so I am going to do that for baseball. I will be adding more information onto this. This is the simplest rough template I put together. But it will evolve. I will put stats in for batters, etc… It’s gonna be a one stop location for everything you need to know about a lineup
This is the google docs link (until the website is launched this weekend
Today’s Slate
Weather Games
Tigers vs Twins - PPD.
Pirates vs Nations - I don’t think this game will play out. The rain is already starting to dot the DC area and it’s just supposed to worsen as the night goes on. If this does play, I would avoid the SPs since I imagine there is a HUGE risk of a rain delay. And I like Williams and Corbin as pitchers. I guess the best case scenario is the game starts, Corbin goes 1 IP, they rain delay, and then they try to finish with the worst bullpen in the NL meaning having exposure to the Pirates may not be the worst thing. Though, again, the rain.
Pitchers (w/ Ownership Projections)
Great Pitchers
Trent Thornton (7800, RHP - 12% owned) vs TB - I have told you to play Thornton so far both times he has pitched. He has gotten you 26.1 and 19.8 DKP in both starts, amassing 15 K in 10.2 IP. Dude isn’t priced nearly high enough for his upside, and people don’t know who he is so he isn’t getting that ownership. Count me in as someone who is going to play extra lineups today so I can get Thornton in over the field. Not to mention this is a Rays team that has stuck out the 3rd most on the season.
Carlos Carrasco (11000, RHP - 23% owned) at KC - As far as I am concerned, there are 2 ways to approach this slate if you are a single entry player, as I normally am - First, you go Carrasco/Thornton and work in some medium priced bats. Or an expensive stack with some cheaper fill-ins. Or second, you go Thornton/Another cheap SP and try to go expensive with hitters. Cause, as of right now, the 3 most popular plays are E-Rod, Happ, and Carrasco, and I think that leaves the expensive bats (like Boston and NYY) underowned. Still, all of this ignores that Carrasco has the stuff to win the Cy and he is the best pitcher on this slate. And no one is really close. We assume that will translate into a good score, because it should.
Christopher Paddack (9700, RHP - 6%) at ARI - I guess I was wrong a second ago when I said there were two ways of approaching this slate. You can also pivot off of Carrasco and take Paddack who is priced significantly lower, will go significantly lower owned, and has just as much upside. The only problem with the kid is his leash. But how can you complain about a kid that has 11 K in 8.2 IP? He has a WHIP of 0.92 so far. He doesn’t give up runs, he doesn’t give up hits (though a few too many walks), and he has dominant, high-K stuff. People aren’t paying for him cause they don’t know who he is. But I do. And now you do too. And he is someone you should be playing almost every time he takes the mound. Especially against an Arizona team that has at least 3 guaranteed Ks every time through the order.
Great Pitcher???
JA Happ (9200, LHP - 28% owned) vs CWS - Happ is a good pitcher. I mean, he was. That’s kind of the point of this section. I have talked about how some pitchers fall off a cliff and some just give in to the inevitable decline that comes with aging. Happ is 36 years old and got to start off the year with 2 starts against the hapless Orioles (thank you). He didn’t make it out of the 4th inning either time and, if you check the lineup page, you will see that he has not had the greatest success. This is a tough White Sox team. I mean, they aren’t going to win a lot of games, but Abreu, Anderson, and Moncada especially should be able to give him fits, and that’s ignoring the talent of the young kids Eloy and Rondon. You can take a chance on Happ if you want. He certainly has the talent and the K upside. But, as the 2nd highest owned pitcher tonight, who has been unable to find his stuff this year, I would rather bet on age rearing its ugly head than Happ pitching like a 25 year old.
Eduardo Rodriguez (9000, LHP - 32% owned) vs BAL - Rodriguez clocks in as the most popular play of the day. And I get it. I’ve been playing E-Rod in advantageous opportunities for a couple years now. The problems here are several fold: First, BAL has proven they are annoying, especially against LHP. Just ask the aforementioned JA Happ or his teammate James Paxton, both of who are significantly better then Rodriguez. Second, E-Rod has looked AWFUL so far this year. A 2.75 WHIP with 6 BB and 7 K in 8 IP?? I know the A’s and Mariners are better than the O’s by light years, but that doesn’t mean E-Rod will magically have a good start. I know Vegas and everything else would tell you to play E-Rod. Given the ownership, how bad he’s looked, and how annoying this unknown O’s team is, I would rather stay away and hope he implodes, letting us get a huge edge over a plurality of the field.
Great Spots
Jake Arrieta (8800, RHP - 14% owned) at MIA - I know Arrieta is a long way away from the Cy Young pitcher we saw a couple years back, and I know that this year he has looked pretty awful (which is why you can’t look at just ERA for people). When you have 13 IP and 9 BB and 7 K there is something wrong. But I also know that the Marlins, who can’t stop being shut out, are as good a spot to get right as any in baseball. I don’t think there’s an offense nearly as bad, having seen them all now for a couple weeks. Plus, there is no way he should be the 6th highest owned pitcher here. Not against the Marlins. I know he hasn’t looked good, but neither have the Marlins.
Brad Keller (7100, RHP - 3% owned) vs CLE - We know a lot here- First, Keller is an extreme ground ball pitcher. What he lacks in any other facet is made up for by that fact. He has 19 IP and only 13 K which isn’t ideal for DFS, but this is an Indians team that will boost that projected K total. On top of that, he has really limited hits on the season - the fact that, over 19 IP he has 8 walks and an WHIP of almost 1 should tell you that, even when his control isn’t all there, he’s missing down (in his case). He’s not wild, leaving things over the plate. He’s intelligently working to people based on his strengths. Given how swing happy some of these Indians are, I would expect Keller to be one of the best starters of the day, and easily someone to pair with Thornton. I don’t understand how he is this low owned.
GPP Plays
Sandy Alcantara (7300, RHP - 3% owned) vs PHI - Sandy Alcantara had about as different a two starts as you could have. In his first go round, at home against the Rockies, he went 8 IP giving up 4 hits, 0 walks, 0 ER and striking out 6. Good for 31.6 DKP. His second start, on the road in Atlanta, he got through 4 innings, again giving up 4 hits, but this time he also gave up 2 ER because he walked 5 and struck out 0. Now the Braves are a really hard team to strikeout. And so far, the Phillies have been as well. But, in his home park (which is a massive pitcher’s park), at almost no ownership, I will take a GPPs chance in an MME situation on Alcantara being able to get 20+ DKP today. He is still a kid, and he was a pretty decent prospect so it’s really not crazy for him to be serviceable and completely under the radar. Especially considering, with a nasty sinker and changeup that break away from LHB, he could really make it hard on people like Bryce that people will be all over.
Corbin Burnes (8500, RHP - 1% owned) at LAD - I know Burnes has had a tough go of it to start off his rookie season. He starts his career against the Cards, Cubs and Dodgers. He also can’t stop giving up HR, which comes from a wild pitcher with dynamite stuff. As I pointed out yesterday, wild means you are just as likely to leave it over the plate. And he has given up SIX HOMERUNS IN 10 INNINGS. That is nuts. But what’s also nuts is he also also stuck out EIGHTEEN. This is a dude with the talent to be rookie of the year. If he could find his control for one start, you have someone with 40 DKP upside that, literally, no one will be on. He is currently the lowest projected owned pitcher. Which I TOTALLY get. But, at the same time, 18 K in 10 IP. How do you not take some kind of chance there.
Wade Miley (7000, LHP - 3% owned) at SEA - Oh boy. This is a tough one. I mean, Miley is a good pitcher. He’s not great. But he’s definitely better than 7k and 3% ownership. He has decent strikeout stuff, has good upside, and is going against a Mariners offense I am unsure about when it comes to LHB. I mean, Smith and Bruce should be useless. Gordon and Murphy should be useless. That’s 4/9ths right there. If he can work around the bigger bats, there’s plenty of outs and plenty of Ks here for Miley. And he’s going overlooked at that price.
Drew Pomeranz (8100, LHP - 5% owned) vs COL - Talk about overpriced. That is why no one wants to roster Pomeranz today. But we are ignoring the fact that the Rockies are awful away from home and, even though he’s had a lot of trouble finding the plate this season, he has still been able to strike out 11 in 9 IP. Apart from the middle of this lineup, there’s just not a lot that worries me here. I don’t like the price, but I do like the spot for him. And I think i’ll have to go there, at least a little bit.
No Thanks
TB Rays Opener Situation - I don’t want to play any of them, nor the long relievers that should take over. And they proved last year how insanely effective this is against hitters. So count me out for any TOR batters tonight, at all. Period. Especially with that AAA lineup the Blue Jays have rolled out.
Julio Urias (8700, LHP - 3%) vs MIL - If you want to pay almost 9k for a pitcher that, at most, will get you 5 IP today, and could easily get pulled in the 4th again, go right ahead. There are very few things in sports that get me as angry as the way the Dodgers manage their rotation. But nothing we can do about it, but ignore it completely.
Batters
Stacking Opportunities (in no particular order)
Yankees vs Giolito (RHP, CWS) - Giolito is someone I have recommended before. He was the #1 prospect in all of baseball before he needed another Tommy John. Now he’s getting back into the swing of things. I certainly think it’s feasible to take a DEEP GPP flier on him given how low owned he will be, but odds are much better the Yankees are going to be able to make consistent contact and but a hammerin’ on young Luke.
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 8
Chalk Level (1-10): 8
Preferred Stack: Full
Preferred Players: Judge (OF - 5100), Sanchez (C - 4900), Bird (1B - 3900), then go back to the top and work down
Boston Red Sox vs David Hess (RHP, BAL) - The Boston Red Sox are projected to score as many runs today as a team would normally be projected to score in Coors Field. It’s not often you get a 10 total outside of Coors, especially when one of the teams is projected for under 4, but here we are. Hess has looked good his first 2 starts but let’s not kid ourselves. He’s not a good pitcher and his luck is going to run out sooner or later. I would take the chance that it is today, against one of the best lineups in baseball.
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 10
Chalk Level (1-10): 10
Preferred Stack: Full
Preferred Players: Start at the top and work down
Mets vs Kyle Wright (RHP, @ATL) - As I pointed out yesterday, the Mets hit a LOT better outside of Citi Field. So I am going to bump their projections when they aren’t there, and I am going to relish in the fact they are going to be consistently underpriced due to that fact. I think that, with Alonso out, people might be less on this stack as it is, but McNeil moving to the leadoff spot is a HUGE deal, and he should be a huge priority for you here. He’s a pure hitter, and Atlanta’s new stadium was made for LHB. Kyle Wright has looked fine and should find some Ks, but a lot less with Nimmo batting 8s and the lineup looking like it is.
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 9
Chalk Level (1-10): 3
Preferred Stack: Full
Preferred Players: Get McNeil (3B/OF - 4100) and Conforto (OF - 4700) in there, for sure, then I do love Rosario in the 2 hole and Dom Smith will go completely overlooked (especially on FD where he is only 2200 and could hit you a couple doubles or a HR today) You can play anyone though, except Nimmo.
Braves vs Zack Wheeler (RHP, NYM) - While I may not like this stack as much as some of the others (given the fact Wheeler could be an ace for some teams), given how poor Wheeler has looked I think this is completely viable. If he continues to be unable to find the plate, this patient Braves team is going to draw 6 BB of him and force him from the start early, before getting to the weak part of the Mets bullpen. The Braves are also a tougher team to strikeout than the league average, meaning Wheeler is even worse off here than normal. I worry about his upside, but I can’t deny the Braves stack looks really nice tonight
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 7
Chalk Level (1-10): 6
Preferred Stack: Full
*Preferred Players: Freeman and Inciarte first. Then Markakis. If you wanna do a mini stack and stop there that’s fine. Otherwise you can add in whoever else you want that is cheap enough. *
A’s vs Drew Smyly (LHP, @TEX) - This one is pretty simple. It’s math, right? You take one offense that has been smashing lately. You add the fact that they can murder LHP. You add one LHP that’s been underperforming and can’t stop letting people on base. You add a guarantee of 9 times AB. You add the fact they are underpriced. You add a positive weather environment. And you have a lot of runs scored for the A’s, somewhat under the radar. Well, yes please!
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 9
Chalk Level (1-10): 7
Preferred Stack: Full
Preferred Players: Khris Davis has to be the lynchpin of any stack, or, if you want, any one-off you play from here. Given the way the lineup looks, I would also love to take Semien, Canha, and Phegley as well. There is also nothing wrong with Pinder, Profar, and then Chapman. But that’s the order I like em in.
Rangers vs Mike Fiers (RHP, OAK) - Mike Fiers is a terrible pitcher that walks everyone and gives up a ton of hits and HR and doesn’t strike people out. Looks like a hell of a good day to stack an underpriced and underowned group of Rangers hitters that can really hurt him here.
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 9
Chalk Level (1-10): 6
Preferred Stack: Full
Preferred Players: Get Gallo in, who is a good bet for a HR today, then start at the top and work your way down. I also like Asdrubal a lot, but that’s just me
Padres vs Luke Weaver (RHP, @ARI) - The Padres get a huge park upgrade against a bad pitcher that people think is good. That means they are underowned and, if you look at the spreadsheet, they are also underpriced. I mean Luke Weaver is projected to be 18% owned, the 4th highest on the slate. Why the hell wouldn’t you want to stack against that, to increase your leverage on the field. Especially when, again, Luke Weaver is not good. Maybe he will be someday. But now is not the day.
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 9
Chalk Level (1-10): 2
Preferred Stack: Full
Preferred Players: Start with Hosmer, who has a great chance for a HR as well, then start at the top and work down.
Dodgers vs Corbin Burnes (RHP, MIL) - I am more likely to pitch Burnes than stack against him. If anything, his HR stuff is more prone to one-offs than a stack but, given the fact he has given up 3 HR each start, you can still take a chance that more than one of these guys is going to get you a HR. It’s a tough MIL bullpen, and the only get 8 innings to hit if they are in the lead, but that doesn’t mean they can’t hit you a bunch of HR in that time.
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 5
Chalk Level (1-10): 10
Preferred Stack: Mini
Preferred Players: Pederson, Bellinger, Seager are the most preferred. In that order, considering price. Independent of price, Bellinger is in a great spot if he doesn’t K
Astros vs Wade LeBlanc (LHP, @SEA) - Wade LeBlanc is not a good pitcher. He’s 2-0 and that might make people think he’s better than he is, but it’s more a function of luck and run support. Right now, he’s going to be tested and it’s going to go poorly for someone that gives up a lot of HR, walks a ton of people, doesn’t K enough folks, and is going against a lineup of lefty killers
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 9
Chalk Level (1-10): 9
Preferred Stack: Full
*Preferred Players: Springer, Altube, Correa, Gurriel, Chirinos, and Tyler White, in that order. *
Giants vs Bettis (RHP, COL) - While I was going to recommend Bettis as a GPP play, he is 16% owned and how would that be a GPP play when he’s one of the most popular plays on the slate. And the reason he was a GPP play is because he has looked TERRIBLE to start the year. Even in TB, which is almost as good a pitcher’s park as SF, he got shelled. Just cause Bettis is on the road going against a poor team doesn’t mean he won’t get shelled again. There are still bats on this Giants team and no one is going to be on them at all.
How much do I love this stack? (1-10): 4
Chalk Level (1-10): 1
Preferred Stack: Mini or Full
Preferred Players: Start with Belt, who could get a HR today, followed by Panik, Crawford, Parra and Duggar.
One-Off Batters
White Sox RHB - While I don’t like these guys enough to stack them, Anderson, Abreu, Moncada, Eloy, and Rondon make for very, very interesting one offs. I would rank them in that order, as well. Anderson shouldn’t be more expensive than Abreu, but he has been hot and he has a much harder position to fill.
Jesus Sucre (C - 2800) - While there are certainly more flashy plays, odds are you are going to want to punt C most of the time. It lets you fit in better bats and better pitchers. Since, generally, the worst production comes from the Cs (which is why FanDuel eliminated it, essentially) it makes sense to take one as cheap as you can get it some days. Well here you have someone not batting last, at 2800, who has extreme splits that should give him as good a chance as any C to produce today, especially against a wild pitcher like E-Rod who is prone to leave one over the plate. This isn’t a safe play, mind you, but I will have some Sucre today for sure.
Rhys Hoskins (1B - 5000) - Rhys Hoskins is an extreme reverse splits hitter going against a righty whose stuff breaks in to him?? Oh my god, he could hit 2 HR today, even if Alcantara can take down the rest of the team.
HR CALL OF THE SLATE: Rhys Hoskins and Mookie Betts
Sorry this was so late! Hope you have enough time to dig into everything!

CreateYoureReality Week 4 Analysis and Picks (Thursday Night Football)

CreateYoureReality Week 4 Analysis and Picks (Thursday Night Football)

https://preview.redd.it/k9tui45eo0p31.jpg?width=790&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e74ba4f2ce6f720700eae6c7ec0ef4a6261e86a9

Hello all!
We started betting last week. I will put up a full week 3 recap tomorrow evening and week 4 picks on Saturday. This post will focus solely on TNF.

Eagles @ Packers (-4): So my first instinct is to take the Eagles. That doesn't even include the stat of every home road dog covering TNF this year so far. The reason for that is the Eagles are "banged up" and 1-2. The Packers are 3-0 and @ home. Why isnt this spread closer to 6.5/7? I think that's because it would leave the books open to too much action in a vulnerable spot. Vulnerable meaning: Yea, the Packer probably win this game 66-75% of the time. But the Eagles can easily take this game 1 out of 4 times. I mean, their secondary looks atrocious to start, but they are pretty legit at stopping the run. Even in the two games they lost, they stopped the other team running out the clock and gave themselves a chance. The Packers D appears to be good, but so far the hardest offense they have faced is the Vikings. Even without D. Jackson, I think tonight will be the biggest test so far for the Packers D.

Thursday night Single bets and Odds Booster bets:
  • Eagles +4 (2.5u to win 2.3) ***This is for my "Million dollar streak" on SugarHouse. I didnt bet the first two weeks, took JAX in week 3. \***
  • Eagles +10 (2u to win 2u) \**This is an Odds Booster on SugarHouse tonight****
\**These next bets are all free bets. SugarHouse gave me 10u Refer-a-friend bonus with a 1x playthrough****
  • Davante Adams to record 80 or more Receiving Yards and 1TD (0u to win 3u) I mean this is an easy one with a free bet. Even though Scantly got all the yards last game, 80 yds and a TD can be one play and the Eagles secondary is currently a joke.
  • Carson Wentz & Aaron Rodgers each to record 250 or more Passing yards & 2 or more Passing Touchdowns (0u to win 13u) This one was interesting to me, CW can get that every game easy. Rodgers has been only hitting in the low 200s, but with Phillys currently top ranked rush D, I expect him to be throwing more quick outs and checkdowns to a rb giving him more opportunity to hit this.
  • Alshon Jeffery & Zach Ertz each to record 80 or more Receiving Yards & 1 or more Touchdown(0u to win 58u) This one was just because of the insane boost! Ertz can hit this on any night just because he is the top or one of the top TEs in the league. Jeffery is coming off an injury but if Philly ends up play from behind like in the first 3 games, expect Jeffery to have opportunities to hit this.

Good luck to everyone! :D

Any legit bets on whether or not CW is Satoshi?

When two groups of people are arguing about something, and there's too much information to comb through, I find betting odds can sometimes give a more accurate, less biased representation of the big picture. Does anyone here know of any sites/bookies that have action on whether or not CW will prove himself the real Satoshi? I'd be real interested to see those odds!

Rapid Fire Rankings: Feb. 1, 2019 (Ft. Steve Chandler!)

Hey guys! It's me Hreg, and the network finally signed a new deal and rehired me, so now I can do shows on the network! So I decided to do a Rapid Fire Rankings, including a Sit Down Interview with, my boy, u/Steve_Chandler__!
10. u/mlgbonghits4
Well, uh… he got some attention, I guess..?
9. u/PhenomenalInferno
The X-Division champion, and *would’ve been* first ever ‘Purity Experience with P1’ guest, although he was trapped in the locker room.
8. u/MidKnightDreary
MKD is challenging for the X-Division title against u/PhenomenalInferno, made it to the finals of the Tournament of Ultimate Destruction, and will fight u/PureP1 (If he makes a return) in a one on one match.
7. u/VacantForHOF
Pacific Champion, defeated NMR and Random at WK13 and continues to defend his title. He will defend his title against u/Hadi-Younes, with Hadi higher on the betting odds..?!
6. u/Hadi-Younes
Undoubtedly one of the best promos of the week, proving that he can hang in the same league as Vacant, there’s a very high chance he could dethrone Vacant and become the Pacific Champion!
5. u/DealerTokes
Reigning, defending, Intercontinental Champion. He will hold a spot in the power rankings until he loses the title or cashes in Option J.
4. u/Steve_Chandler__
He made me put him this high or he said he wouldn’t do my interview.
3. u/TheLucasRodrigues
Who the heck is this guy? First he kills an old man and we feel bad for him. Then, we find out that the old man abused him as a child. I’ve got mixed feelings here, I just hope he isn’t responsible for P!’s disappearance.
2. u/danchester_united
Holds the record for most World Title Reigns. Recently won the World Championship and dethroned u/LMonkA7X at Royal Rumble, further proving why he’s the top human on this list.
1. Snappy
What bad things can you even say about this guy? He’s smart, powerful, and hungry. He tried to eat me one time, but I totally get it, it’s how his species operates!
Honourable Mentions
u/LMonkA7X u/AurumVocem u/_blackheart u/BestinBounds
And now… our Interview of the week… u/Steve_Chandler__!
Hreg: Hey Steve, good to have you on the show!
Steve: Good to be here, let’s hit these questions.
Hreg: First off, Who do you believe attacked you and forced you to no-show your 8-Man Tag Team match?
Steve: Well, I believe me attacker is a member of Legion, I want to say RyRy but… It’s hard to say. While Bong’s lost his position as General Manager, Stifles a laugh, I still believe he orchestrated the attacks.
Hreg: Well, I can’t help but agree. But let’s cover something that’s on everyone’s minds… what are you plans for the Grandest Stage of them all, Wrestlemania?
Steve: My plans for ‘mania are to walk in with not only the Commonwealth title, but the World Title, and then walk out beating my challenger(s) for the CW title and JJ in the Main Event.
Hreg: Alright, one last question. How will Stevolution recover from the devastating miscalculation in the Trios Battle Royal, and how do you guys plan on gaining those Trios titles one way or another?
Steve looks a little disinterested in the question, and scratches his head.
Steve:8 I can’t really say Stevolution have a plan… we never really do. But we always- and I mean always bounce back.
Hreg: Well Steve, thanks for joining me for a LLR Network exclusive sit down interview, and I’ll see all of you next week!
The Hreg Studios and LLR Network logos appear on the screen as the episode ends.

Texas A&M Legacy of Failure, Episode VII, Part I: Maybe He'll Finally Shut Up Now

Howdy!!
Previous Episodes;
Episode I,
Episode II,
Episode III,
Episode IV,
Episode V,
and Episode VI.
Well. I’ll keep the intro this time pretty short. This episode is a little different from the rest, in that while sports are still a focus, the meat of this episode has to do with the rot that is growing at an alarming pace at my beloved school. It is also LONG, and it does conclude my 41-page, 18,000 word shitpost. When we last left, A&M was beginning to re-order its priorities further towards money above all else in the form of swelling costs and enrollment numbers. To anyone who wants to take this shitpost and turn it into a video or x-post it somewhere else, you have both my blessing and my encouragement. My whole goal with this script was to reach people with it. Mr. Tree, I'd like to thank you once more for the inspiration to write this, and should you ever want to make a bet, I'm all ears. To the other mods in this shitposting hellhole, I thank you again for tolerating this weekly flood of garbage. It's over now. I'd also like to thank you, the reader, and all the subs in this place, for turning this little slice of Reddit into a genuinely fun place to hang out and learn things I never thought I'd care about. I've learned about lolcows the world over in sports and gaming that I never would have discovered thanks to this place. Thanks BMacky for making this mess. Thanks Selke for sticking around with me when no one was here. Thanks Vette, Notumbre, Felix, and ProjectSaint for helping this place grow, and ribbing me when my teams kick me in the balls. Let's hope the next thousand subs is as good as this thousand.
2010s And here we are. This decade has been one of mistakes and decline for A&M as a whole, and I would wager it has been the worst for A&M since the 1950s. The university is absolutely packed. A&M is one of the 3 biggest universities in the country. The bus system went from bogged down to completely broken. The buses are now so unreliable due to lack of drivers and high demand on the more popular routes that there isn’t really a point to using them. Even among the shortage of drivers, starting pay refuses to rise over $9.75 an hour, there are frustrating hurdles to actually getting hired, and seniors are not allowed to drive. Dorms are filling up to the point where they can’t even house most of the freshmen anymore.
And what is the University’s response? Let’s flood the school with even more students, many of whom are from overseas and don’t give a damn about any of the values and traditions that make A&M different from any other college! And what about the rats in the MSC and the roaches in Sbisa? What about the goddamn lead in the engineering buildings’ water systems? They tested it, declared it lead free in 2015, and then mysteriously shut off the water afterwards for “further testing” in 2016. Long story short, the quality of student life takes a serious hit these years.
In addition, prices for everything – tuition, housing, food, books, you name it – have risen off the charts. While A&M may be affordable compared to private or out-of-state universities, it still takes tens of thousands of dollars of student loans to get anywhere near a degree unless you are rich enough (or your parents are) to buy the education outright or poor enough to get financial aid. A&M’s tone-deaf administrators brag about never having more scholarships than before – which, I will grant, is true -- but when the cost of everything keeps rising and there are thousands more students to compete for the scholarships each year, it isn’t anything more than lip service.
And let’s review some sports for a second here. The first player everyone will think of is Johnny MLG AIRHORN HONK Football. But he is exactly the opposite of what an Aggie is supposed to be: an Aggie should be a man of high repute both on and off the field. It isn’t a requirement by any requirement of the NCAA, but A&M is supposed to be about more than just athletic skill. The dude was an off-field basketcase. He was born to an extremely wealthy family and wasn’t raised right. The warning flags were as red and loud as Kyle Field on gameday. Where do you draw the line, A&M? Is the conduct by this tool acceptable because he generates you shit-tons of money but students selling tickets to former students so that they can pay the goddamn rent, keep the lights on, afford your ever-more frequent tuition hikes, or just get some fucking food money is unacceptable because “muh Aggie values?” Where is the fucking consistency?! And even if you want to make excuses because he did win the Heisman, that still doesn’t explain why we tolerated the cancers at QB that came immediately after Manziel.
And then… oh dear Lord. This stadium rebuild. $450 Million for an increase in 20,000 seats! How many new seats are made for the legendary twelfth man, for the students that yell and stand eternal, making Kyle Field deafening to play in? 36. Fucking 36. THIRTY. SIX. That’s it. Sports passes? They’ve now doubled in cost AND you only get to see half the games! And two of those games will be against some low-rent FCS school that A&M paid to be there! And all the while, the reconstruction of the horrifically overcrowded student Rec center takes years beyond its deadline and almost no real progress is made during the Kyle Field reconstruction project.
And one last thing. Let’s bring up the 100-odd year old elephant carcass in the room -- the rivalry against t.u. I hate the Longhorns. And their greed in insisting upon the Longhorn network is noted in countless other articles, videos, and media across the internet. It isn’t just “lol aggy gonna aggy” when Nebraska, Mizzou, and Colorado tell you to eat shit too. You nearly killed the Big 12, and you need to thank TCU, Oklahoma State, and OU for keeping the Big 12 from turning into the AAC. Truth be told, there are probably Longhorn fans who can sum up the rampant fuckery of their administration far better than I can. And to those of you Longhorn fans that have maybe read this (presumably for the understandable schadenfreude) along the way that believe the rivalry is better off dead, and that Oklahoma was always the one you wanted, let me remind you that it’s not goodbye to OU in that godawful excuse for a fight song you insist on bleating like a bunch of mentally stunted goats. It’s goodbye to A&M. You hate us. You hate us in a different way than OU. You would be sad to see Oklahoma become a punchline because it would deprive you of a solid rivalry. The truth is, your rivalry with OU justifies you, whereas what you want to see A&M do is suffer and collapse to become that funny little maroon punching bag you had back in the 60s. I have got enough Longhorn friends and family to have a decent idea as to what each rivalry means. You want Oklahoma to be a 1-loss team that loses to you. You want A&M to be a 12-loss team that loses to you. And the feeling is very much mutual. The Charlie Strong years were so long-overdue for you. It is high time that you suffer a decade of genuinely crap sports. Not just football. You deserve a good decade of misery in a sports desert, because at least then when you have some success again, you’d have the fanbase intensity that’s gone missing in recent years . Consider that the Strong years were the worst years for Texas football in roughly half a century. And Kansas memes aside, your worst year was still 5-7 in that span. Yet pundits like this chode insist you are one of the longest suffering sports fanbases. Oh yes, 12 years of drought must be so, so difficult. Please.
But I am getting off track. Our administration has been equally as responsible for bitching about the network, and then about unequal revenue sharing. A&M’s administration tried to have their cake and eat it too, and whaddya know, it cost the world of college sports one of the greatest rivalries in the nation. While the overall record is heavily skewed in favor of Texas, it had been more or less even rivalry since the 70s, filled with every kind of craziness on both sides that makes college sports great: victorious triumphs, tragic heartbreakers, seasons spoiled by the underdog, and all sorts of vengeance. Similar to the rise of A&M from backwards military school sliding into irrelevance to one of the biggest public universities in the nation, the rise of this rivalry went from an OU-OKST style rivalry into a fierce and evenly matched competition, in all three major sports and in many others. And our high-ups not only just pulled the plug on it, but refuse to revive the rivalry as it enters rigor mortis. Ask yourselves. Buckeye fans, would you not be outraged with your university if you stopped playing Michigan? Georgia fans, if your administration killed off the Florida rivalry, would you not be livid and demand immediate change? This is a rivalry on that level. What I fear is becoming a university with no clear #1 rival anymore. I fear the fate of Nebraska-Oklahoma. Go back and watch the early 70s or the 1990s matchups of these two gridiron titans. It is criminal to see that rivalry dead (and whaddya know, Longhorn greed was a root symptom there too), and it is criminal to watch this rivalry die. Nebraska has been listless since that rivalry began to die. We have no rival like that in the SEC, unless we want to relegate ourselves to being the Capitals to LSU’s Penguins. No matter what we do, the hate isn’t there in the same way on the other end -- t continue the analogy, the Pens fans have the Flyers. Similarly, LSU is always going to be looking eastward at the end of the day, not toward us, when the hate consumes them. I cannot believe it would have to come to this, but let’s look at the ever-shining beacon of legislative achievement that is the state of Alabama. They have a law that forces Bama and Auburn to play. Governor Abbott, make this happen for the good of the citizens of the state of Texas, and make sure the game is never held in goddamn Jerryworld. I want to go to DKR and get jeered at, and do the exact same when they come to Aggieland.
I could keep ranting about the crap this university has pulled for a while. And I will. But let’s cut to the recent years in A&M sports choking and get it out of the way for the sake of completion. As you might imagine, yeah yeah yeah there is no real success this decade in football, basketball, or baseball, even though ever more obscene amounts of money are pumped into the programs…But the failures, as is longstanding Aggie Tradition, shine brightly and brilliantly. Let’s just get this over with.
2010 Well, the basketball team looks promising. And a strong showing in the Big 12 conference, coming in as the runner up to a perennial powerhouse Jayhawks squad. Let’s go to the Dance as the 5 seed!
First round Way to beat Utah State like you were supposed to. Up next is Purdue. Can you please not choke away this one?
Second Round Let’s go out and win this one for Derrick Roland, boys! (Do not look up this injury if you have a weak stomach…woof) A matchup for the ages against a 4th seed Purdue squad looking to prove itself just like we are.
OT After blowing a 7-point lead in the half, the score is notched at 55. You’re in this somehow with 10 seconds left at 61 apiece. Time for a key defensive stop – WHAT THE FUCK KIND OF DEFENSE IS THAT KRAMER JUST WALTZED IN FROM THE POINT FOR A LAYUP Ok just get down the court and get off a three, there’s still time aaaand…. Off the rim.
Baseball Another 43 win season. What does that even matter at this point.
Regional finals Get assblasted by Miami in the deciding game 10-3!
Football Alright! Up 21-7 at the start of the 2nd half against a good Oklahoma State team and 3-0!
15 minutes later Allow 21 points in one quarter of play and lose 38-35. Lose the next two games until the coaching guys remove their heads from their asses and play Ryan Tannehill. Respond with six straight wins and a resounding victory over Texas and one of the most exciting games in an absolutely bonkers Kyle Field crowd against Nebraska! Enjoy the ensuing Bo Pelini meltdown! Too bad you can’t win the bowl against LSU, but hey it’s not like you’ll have to play them every year or anything! All in all, this is one of the better years in A&M history, and it is STILL riddled with failure when it really counts.
2011 What was that I just said? Yeah nevermind, we’re going to the SEC! Surely we can make the leap from a mediocre Big 12 team to a good SEC team! Much like Mizzou, Nebraska, and Colorado, we mostly got tired of the Longhorns trying to be greedy as hell and put the screws on the rest of the conference. That being said, if we had actually tried putting more effort into funding a Big 12 Network instead of taking our ball and going east like a petulant six year old, maybe a 117-year rivalry wouldn’t have had to die. I want to stab myself for saying this. While the wonderful assholes in burnt orange being their greedy selves had much to do with the split, A&M has handled the split about poorly as possible as discussed at length above, which, honestly… what else would one expect from the A&M admins in the new millenium?
Basketball Another stellar season! Let’s go dancing again! The good news is that you didn’t choke in the 2nd round… because you lost in the 1st to Florida State.
Baseball Well well well. Another 40+ win season, a tie for Big 12 Champs, blah blah blah…
Regionals Meh, you beat Wright State and Seton Hall. Tell me when you beat a real team.
Finals Solid shutout against Arizona. But you’ll just choke in the Super-Regionals…
Super-regionals Holy Shit. A resounding and clutch bounceback win against Florida State! YOU GUYS ACTUALLY MADE IT TO THE CWS AND DIDN’T CHOKE!!! YEEEEEEEEEAAAAHHHHH WE’RE GOING TO OMAHA!!!! I CAN FEEL IT. THIS IS THE YEAR!
CWS first round You couldn’t even win one fucking game. It’s really my fault for buying in at this point.
Football The Big 12 shits on your season as a parting gift. The cherry on top is a knife in the back over what would have been a win over Texas, in what was still a game for the ages. I hope your leg develops gangrene, Justin Tucker. Go fuck yourself.
2012 Due to a tremendous talent loss and a coaching change to Billy Kennedy, the basketball team regresses heavily.
Baseball After a 43-win season, you choke to TCU in the 2nd round of the regionals. Remember that team.
Football New(ish) coach in Kevin Sumlin for $5 million a year. And we have this small dude named Johnny at the helm. A freshman QB and a new, tough-as-nails conference? Jeez, I’d hope for a 5 win season here.
Week 1 The SEC era in Kyle field begins with a tough loss to Florida. But considering how good UF has been and what we are working with, perhaps things won’t be too bad this year.
A few weeks later Wow, a ranking and 5-1! Not half bad! We wiped the floor with Arkansas and beat Ole Miss and LA Tech to boot! We might not be the doormat of the SEC after all!
1 week later Congratulations, you STILL Can’t beat LSU.
November 10, 2012 Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my…no way. We won’t do this. We can’t do this. It won’t happen. MLG AIRHORN MONTAGE OH MY GOD! JOHNNY DID IT! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP!!!!
Johnny B. Goode intro
montage of wins over rest of 2012 season including monster revenge win over Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl, as expectations launch into the stratosphere
2013 Coach Kennedy makes a small improvement to the team, but Aggie hoops has a way to go before it can compete with the best in the SEC.
Baseball Congratulations, you once again fail to get past the regional! This time, get mauled by Oregon State!
Football Oh, what a year this was. Expectations were sky-high. We had Johnny Football. Sure, he’s rapidly becoming an off-field basket case, but the dude was electric! A rising coach, 5 studs on the O-line, and a true star in Mike Evans to bail Johnny out when he made a risky throw. Two easy wins over Rice and Sam Houston State, and fresh into our rematch in Kyle Field with Alabama.
2013_Aggies_Defense.exe not found
Oh come on, not this again! The appalling defense proves too heavy an anchor for Johnny Football to pull behind him and A&M loses to every ranked opponent it plays in the regular season. At least that comeback from 28-10 against Duke was a lot of fun to watch. Johnny Manziel, meanwhile, leaves for the greener pastures of the NFL. Surely he won’t regret this!
Plays 2014 Draft footage, with a visibly disgusted Manziel at he realizes his fate is now to watch his career die in the Factory of Sadness Well then.
2014
Basketball A small improvement in the records again towards the middle of the pack in the SEC. The tough schedule might make the record look suspect, but this team wasn’t too bad.
Baseball Congratulations, you once again fail to get past the regional! But to add insult to injury, its to those God-damn Longhorns in the deciding game!
Football The radioactive off-field issues of Johnny Manziel morph into the radioactive off-field issues of Kenny Hill! We as a fanbase will always be responsible for the travesty that was the nickname “Kenny Trill”, and it is a sin we must carry with us to our graves. But who cares about that?! A&M is 5-0 and ranked 6th overall! This could finally be the --
3 weeks later 59-0. Fifty. Nine. To. NOTHING. Oh, and lose another two out of the last five (including another defeat to LSU) to end the season 8-5.
2015 The Aggies make it to the NIT this year, and improve once more to the SEC, but this program still isn’t all that much of a power player this year.
Baseball
Groundhog day clock After winning 50 games and making it to the super-regionals, don’t just get eliminated in the final game by TCU, but do so in 16 innings to ratchet up the BAS just a little bit more!
Football Pay John Chavis shit-tons of money to fix the defense! Clearly, all Sumlin needs to win is a good Defensive Coordinator. Meanwhile, the radioactive issues of Kenny Hill morph into the radioactive issues of Kyle Allen AND Kyler Murphy! Two locker-room cancers for the price of one at the same position? We can't lose! Wait, there’s some Jalen kid who was born and raised in Houston and really really wanted to be an Aggie? Fuck that scrub, he’ll never make it in college ball!
October All right! We’re ranked 5-0 again and ready to take revenge on Alabama! Final Score: A&M 23, Alabama 20, Kyle Allen -21. Finish the year by losing 5 of 8 and ending up 8-5 again, including ANOTHER painful loss to LSU!
2016 Coach Kennedy has finally put this team into the spotlight! We’re going dancing again, boys!
First round Way to crush Green Bay. Next!
Second Round Well, it looks like we decided to underperform. We’re down 12 against Northern Iowa. Good luck to them, it’ll be fun to watch the cinderella...no way.
No way.
No. FUCKING. WAY!
OH MY GOD HOW THE WHAT THE WE WON WHAT IS THIS THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN TO US OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD WE GOT PAST THE SECOND ROUND!!!! GOODBYE BAS, HELLO SWEET 16!!!!
Sweet 16 Get curbstomped by Oklahoma! Honestly, Northern Fucking Iowa could have done better. We had no business being here, even though we were the 3 seed.
Baseball
Groundhog day clock After winning almost 50 games and making it to the super regionals, again, get eliminated in the final game by TCU….AGAIN.
Football Pay Noel Mazzone shit tons of money to fix the offense! Clearly, all Sumlin needs to win is a good Offensive Coordinator. And holy Shit. You guys actually have a non-cancerous Quarterback in Trevor Knight AND you are 6-0 AND you are (somehow) ranked #4?! Let’s see how the bed gets shat in THIS year!
December Lose five of the last seven and get whatever specks of dignity left on this joke of a team destroyed by LSU and Kansas State!
2017 Regress heavily back into the swamps of basketball mediocrity!
Baseball
Breaks Groundhog day clock This time you don’t choke in the Super Regionals! You’re going to the College World Series Aggies! WHOOP!!!
Ghosts of Groundhog day clocks layered over one another Get eliminated immediately by WHADDYA KNOW, THE FUCKING HORNED FROGS! AAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!
Football Ok, put up or shut up, Kevin Sumlin. It’s been 4 years since Manziel magic and your team is incapable of maintaining a good show through the 2nd half of the season.
Week 1 Well, you know what! I guess I was wrong! You’re actually running the football, Mazzone has decided not to become a Spav carbon copy, AND the defense looks unstoppable! Oh but my BAS is raging something fierce! Surely A&M can’t fuck up THIS badly!
2nd half Wait. Why are you not running the ball. Why the fuck are you not – what the fuck. WHAT. THE. FUCK! GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA rips A&M shirt off body and into shreds and punches wall. No really, this is actually something I did AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH FUUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRK!!!!!!
YOU BLEW A 34 POINT LEAD! A 34. Point. Lead. Even the likes of Andy Reid, the 2017 Atlanta Falcons, and the 1993 Houston Oilers bask in the awe of this utter failure in clock management! And to think that after Hurricane Harvey, and after the other Texas teams performing like flaming excrement, A&M could finally shine once more! This choke job is so bad that UCLA had over a 99.5% chance of losing with FOUR MINUTES TO GO. And we, the fans, paid Sumlin $5,000,000 a year to enjoy the privilege of him looking like a deer in the headlights whenever things don’t go perfectly!
Oh, and to add insult to injury, how is that Kenny Trill guy doing? Oh, he got his head out of his ass and is pillaging Charmin-soft Big 12 defenses? Wonderful. And that Jalen guy Kevin passed on for two QBs that aren’t on the roster anymore? Killing it in Alabama you say? Just fucking dandy.
I have to be honest here. I was in the CFB sub talking with other people watching the game. When we went up 44-10, I said “How will we fuck this one up?”. Three letters to live by, people: B.A.S.
2018 While it’s still awfully early, the basketball team has managed to plummet from #5 in the country to a 6-9 conference record in a matter of weeks. While it looks like they’re now bouncing back, do I have any confidence in them to get anywhere close to new ground in the Dance? C’mon. I await the new and fascinating way in which A&M will let me down this time. I had to post this here because fuck it, let’s stack one last example on the platter.
Oh Christ. Are you FUCKING KIDDING ME. $75 Million GUARANTEED to Jimbo. Way to not learn anything at all from the Jackie Sherrill years, A&M. Oh well. He’s brought in a good recruit haul so far and really, a nine-win season would be eno-
A&M Chancellor John Sharp Presents Jimbo Fisher with a National Championship Trophy dated 20--
I bury my face into my palms and exhale, rubbing my eyes and giving into BAS once more
Chancellor Sharp... Are you that ignorant of our history?! CHAMPIONS 20--?!?! ARE YOU NOT AWARE THAT IT HAS BEEN ALMOST 80 FUCKING YEARS SINCE OUR LAST TITLE? WHY WOULD YOU TEMPT FATE LIKE THIS? HOW IS YOUR HEAD THIS FAR UP YOUR OWN ASS? AND THEN WHAT THE FUCK KIND OF MESSAGE IS IT WHEN INSTEAD OF JUST CELEBRATING A&M-COMMERCE’S NATIONAL TITLE IN D2 AND GIVING THEM THEIR YEAR IN THE SUN, YOU THROW A&M-COMMERCE UNDER THE BUS BY GIVING JIMBO THE EXACT SAME TROPHY FOR DOING LITERALLY FUCKALL?!?! WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?! WHAT POSSIBLE GOOD DID YOU THINK THIS WOULD DO? WAY TO MAKE US LOOK LIKE ARROGANT ASSHOLES TO THE NATION, SHARP. WAY TO GO.
Whew. The Aggies put my beloved Nationals and Capitals to shame in terms of disappointment. How on earth do we still have faith in Aggie sports through excruciating loss after excruciating loss? What else is there to say? Here. Let’s let the numbers show the final results!

Preseason Week 3
With two 2014 NFL preseason games in the books, the Philadelphia Eagles will play at Lincoln Financial Field for the first time this season. The Eagles will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the classic All-Pennsylvania match-up.
RB Le'Veon Bell & RB LeGarrette Blount will play tonight despite being arrested yesterday for marijuana possession and DUI (Bell only).
Fun Facts (Via BGN)
Preseason Updates
Josh Huff is injured with an AC Sprain. The injury came from returning a kick in the Week 2 game against the Patriots. He hopes to be back by Week 1, but it is unlikely.
McCoy is dealing with a case of Turf Toe. So far it doesn't appear to be that serious. He participated fully after taking 1 day off.
The Eagles released LB Jason Phillips.
The Eagles traded RB David Fluellen to the Colts for K Cody Parkey.
The Eagles traded for RB Kenjon Barner giving the Panthers a conditional 7th round pick. Barner will need to be on the active 46-man roster for 4 games for the pick to go through.
Beau Allen stopped by /eagles and did an AMA. He is an awesomely funny guy - check it out.
A Brief Look at History
Philadelphia and Pittsburgh have met 23 times in the preseason since 1975. The Eagles have gone 10-13 against the Steelers in exhibition match-ups.
The Eagles and Steelers have met 78 times in the regular season. The Eagles lead the series 47-28-3.
Due to World War II, the Eagles and Steelers briefly merged because of a lack of NFL players. The team was called "The Steagles" and the unit went 5-4-1 and finished third in the NFL's Eastern Conference. Coincidentally, it was Philadelphia's first winning season in its franchise history.
