    GL with the picks today LT.

    It's refreshing not seeing the Marlins on this list. High school teams would beat them, respectfully.

    Right but they have lost every time I had them, including last night.

    Good news is I split the game as I also had the Under. Bad news is it was my only winner last night (1-4).

    I am all about the numbers and do not get emotional, so confidence level is always the same. I expect to finish + units at the end of the season while accepting there will be some bumpy roads along the way.

    I am high on both starters, both better than 15% above average with Greinke about 3% better. But everything shakes out to DBacks 55% (-122) so price is right on Buccos.

    Why so high on Archer? In my eyes heís been an average pitcher. Unless you believe he still has some of that 2013-2015 stuff in the tank. He did look good in his first 3 starts though. Until LA tagged em for 6

    Once he cuts his walks down, he should return to his normal level. He has never walked more that 3.00/9 in any season, this year so far he is at 4.00, that most likely will not continue as he builds his innings back up. He is still getting his strikeouts, which is a good sign, and his normal level is a career 3.48 xFIP.

    He is striking out more than a batter per inning, his stuff is fine.

    Do you factor in age for players, so that when players begin to tank with age (lower BAA, higher ERA) your model accounts for that rather than saying ďHe has had worse numbers than expected but he will return to his normal self soon!Ē.

    At what point do you just consider their current results to be closer to the mean population for their stats than previous years? For example couple of pitchers go 3-4 years with 3.5 ERA or less then all of sudden blow up, next few years 5+ ERA.

    Recent seasons are weighted a bit heavier so that automatically incorporates age. Plus that are saber indicators that would point to a steep decline, and Archer looks fine, just like I said with Chris Sale when guys said he was "finished" a few weeks ago.

    Angels became intriguing at +133 as that is 3% variance from model, but passed because I never like to see line run away from model.

    No guarantees, I don't rate plays because I plays them all the same. So don't hate me if I go 4-1 with Pirates only loser.

    You never know when the Pirates just won't score runs. Their run differential always makes me think twice before taking them. Not a bad team, just not a power house. Wishing you luck on the rest of the card tonight LT.

    Pirates got raped in the archer trade. Not only is Glasnow becoming a beast but they got meadows also!! Sucks for tampons that it sounds like Glasnow could be headed for TJ tho., that the unfortunate thing for rays, with their salary restrictions they can still compete but unlike the big boys when they take injuries they donít have the resources to overcome them..

    Archer has never developed that 3rd pitch he needs to be elite.
