Once again we have no weather concerns on this slate which is great — in fact temps in South Korea in general are warming up as expected.
THE QUICK 411
The Bears, Dinos, Twins and Wiz are your four big favorites today.
We don’t have the DEPTH of strikeout pitchers today that we did yesterday.
Odrisamer Despaigne (KT – $8300) … Best hitter on the KIA Tigers is Preston Tucker who finally got it going last night after a cold slump, but Despaigne continues to pitch efficiently and should have enough run support tonight to earn the victory. He’s pretty steady and this is a slate where steady is good enough.
Ki Young Im (KIA – $7500) … In the Majors there’s usually no reason to go full gamestack on pitchers unless you’re getting one of them at a big discount. But here in the KBO with only 5 games and 4 of them looking like some big hitting spots this is an area where I think you can get safe and sneaky by stacking the two pitchers in this Wiz-Tigers game. Im hasn’t been that bad and is someone I’ve watched a decent amount of so far this season and he has a wicked cool little dip and almost side angle toss. It can be deceiving and in this park he should keep the HR down.
Jae Hak Lee (NC – $9000) … I think you’ll get equal value stacking Despaigne/Im than you would mixing with Lee but he’d be next in line for me.
Da Bears … They’ll definitely be chalky and they’ll definitely be my main lineup today. Everyone grades out well against Seung Won Moon
- Joo Hwan Choi – 1B/2B
- Jose Fernandez – 1B/2B
- Se Hyuk Park – C
Giants … After a 1-0 game last night this one should be back up there into the normal scoring ranges. If Samsung wasn’t so banged up I would ride their side as I think they have the better match-up all around but the Giants are an easier team to stack right now.
