Steve Renner MLB DFS – 9/11

PITCHING

Carlos Carrasco … The Indians haven’t lost since August.  Like, mid-August…  And now they welcome in the Tigers, who they have owned for the past two seasons and are starting an R&B Jazz Singer on the mound….  Check that, this isn’t the R&B jazz singer.  Darn, Jay Bruce would have liked that probably…  Cookie isn’t as good at home, but he’s the only top guy today and should win.

Zack Greinke … If you want to play with fire and pivot off the 60% owned guy onto the 10% owned guy and pray it works out then go here.  Otherwise, play Carrasco even though Greinke has been good at home this year.

Brandon Woodruff … On SP2 sites I would look at Woodruff who has pitched very well in his starts in the big leagues this year and shouldn’t be limited in his innings against a Pirates team who’s best hitter (McCutchen) has been cold for a while.

Kenta Maeda … I hate him, but the Giants back home after an east coast west trip today and Maeda should pitch decent against them. Only an SP2 play though, just take Cookie over him on FD.

 

TOP STACKS

Milwaukee … I love the Brewers who are rolling and playing with a ton of confidence and chasing the Cubs down.  They’re great at home and should murder Steven Brault today.

Cleveland … Dont bet against hot streaks they say!

Colorado … Huge series for the Rockies to get going after going in and beating up on the Dodgers.  They’ve done very well vs Greinke in Arizona
