“Give a man a fish, he will eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”
The aforementioned has always stuck with me. So when it’s baseball season, I have always wanted to focus on not only bring you great pitching picks day in and day out, but teaching you how in the process. Let’s face it, we all know DFS is hard. Just pure picks is not going to do it anymore. That’s why I’m here. Pitching has been a love of mine since the beginning. Statistics has been a love of mine since the beginning. I found out years ago that you can combine both in MLB DFS, and now…here we are.
Each weekday (Monday – Friday) I will go through my process and analysis on which pitchers I am using for the given day. Here, you will find why I like certain pitchers, why I do not like others, why I am using some pitchers in cash and others in GPP, and more.
You will see:
- Early Slate Strategy (if applicable)
- Pitchers to Vet (Main Slate)
- Decision Time (Cash/GPP/Both Picks)
- Favorite Prop Bets
Every single day, I will update how the previous night’s pitchers performed. I have done this for two and a half years now, and I include EVERY pitcher. I won’t count just the stats of the Kershaw and the Kluber, if I like a GPP option that is very risky, he is included.
Through a few years to date:
625-426 (W-L) 3.57 ERA 9106.2 IP 3616 ER 9139 K
I’ve found there is not much of this in DFS, as some analysts won’t do it on purpose, others are just lazy, and some just flatout forget. Yes, results are in the screenshots, but it helps to show the numbers from the actual analysis.
