    Tonight features the first 80%er that I have ever seen!

    Dodgers 80% (-400)

    There are no other 60%ers on Monday

    What is everybody seeing in Minnesota tonight that I'm missing? Nolasco is a straight up bum no?

    Kennedy not worthy of being a road favorite, his ERA is deceptive considering his .258 BABIP, his 4.15 FIP and 428 xFIP are truer measures of his ability. Nolasco has a high ERA but he will not beat himself as he has just nine walks all year vs. 43 strikeouts in 49.1 innings, and plus Gordon might be out for Royals. And don't forget Nolasco's best start this year was at KC, where he allowed one run and just three hits in seven innings with 5 Ks and not a single walk.

    I passed this along, I am scared to try and fix myself because I am worried that if I delete one, I might delete them both.

    LT always loved your insight and have tailed you on many plays.

    My opinion on KC and MIN.

    Kennedy has won 3 of his 4 on the road, with a lower ERA than at home this year. Not worthy of a road favorite? That's where hes been strong at this year.

    Nolasco's last 4 starts have been horrible, barely making it out of the 5th inning.

    Even though Gordon MAY be out tonight, hes kinda been irrelevant this whole season, definitely not the Gordon we've seen last year!

    xFIP is park adjusted, so Kennedy's 4.28 translates to all starts. Don't get caught up in winning road record, he has been lucky with the BABIP.

    And I get that Nolasco is not a world beater, but he actually has a 3.72 FIP and 3,75 xFIP. Even his 0.8 WAR is marginally better than Kennedy's 0.6. So starters are too close for one to be a road favorite.

    LT regarding the Padres, arent you worried about their long game against the Dodgers yesterday and their BP being taxed? Pomeranz has had issues going deep into games as well

    Just a bit but the +163 makes it worth it. Model has Giants 59% (-144).

    Lt how did you find out those two pitchers are being sent diwn

    Also does that usually indicate a sloppy performance on both??

    I believe they were just added under the 26-man roster rule for doubleheaders.

    They were both called up today specifically to start Game 2 as the 26th man on roster. And no, that does not always indicate a sloppy performance, but in this specific case both were up in the majors earlier this year and both shit the bed. Anderson had nearly an 8.00 ERA in seven games (six starts) before the Indians had seen enough, and while Johnson was only up for one bad start earlier this year, he has a weak ratio at Triple-A with 6.37 strikeouts vs. 3.06 walks per nine innings.

    Betting over in GM2. Wind blowing in, but Frazier and Napoli have both gone deep so far in game 1.

    Hopefully this will mean weather not much of a factor.

    LT please be mindful of the fact that Kennedy made his season debut vs the Twins at home and pitched a flawless 6.2 innings, only giving up 5 hits and 0 runs. He struck out 7 on this day and Minnesota bats can't seem to connect w/ him.
