Don’t say I didn’t warn you about yesterday’s slate. One lesson to remember is when we have a projected chalky pitcher that looks iffy like Despaigne (and Lee in hindsight) there’s a TON of upside in going the leverage route of simply doing a stack against that chalky pitcher. The numbers being what they are in KBO with higher chalk and less hitting competition (because of fewer teams), it really can pay off when we have spots like yesterday. Just something to always throw out there as an option building your lineups.
Casey Kelly – $8,800 – LG Twins
Samsung has almost no power. Kelly gives up almost no homers. He’s SP1 today.
Geon Wook Lee – $6,300 – SK Wyverns
Tough to pick on the Dino’s normally but this is the best mid range/value pitcher on the board and only Sung Bum Na — who has been hitting everyone — has hit lefties from the Dino’s this year consistently. Really strong consideration to play Lee tonight even on my main lineup.
Warwick Saupold – $9,500 – Hanwha Eagles
Saupold isn’t going to go out and strikeout 10 batters, but when you are going 6+ innings and normally giving up 3 or fewer runs that’s what we call a nice quality start and while the $9500 price may not feel like an easy thing to do without 30 point ceiling, it sure beats getting Despaigne’d with a -19 doesn’t it?
The Bears come in as a heavy favorite in a game with a 12.5 total compared to the next highest game at 9.5 So yeah, this is where everyone will go without knowing a single thing about what has happened so far in this KBO season and it’s justified going up against Hyeong Jun So.
Jeong Choi moved down in the order and still had a big game. SK is rolling, hard to pass on them right now and facing a lefty gives the heart of the order a boost.
