Saturday, August 8th, 2020 at 7:05 PM
Hope everyone is having a great Saturday!
We are on to our MLB lineups for the day and let us look at our DraftKings MLB Lineup which features an 8-game slate and starts at 7:05pm.
Weather is looking solid tonight, so I am not hesitating on any of the matchups!
On the mound tonight, we are going with Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers and David Peterson of the Mets.
Clayton Kershaw might not be the same “ace” that we have seen in the past, but he is still an outstanding pitcher which K-upside and a great match-up agianst the Giants tonight. Kershaw looked sharp in his first outing agianst Arizona and I think on a slate with very few intriguing pitching options, he is worth paying up for tonight.
Peterson has been a nice surprise for the Mets so far this season as he has had two solid outings against the Boston Red Sox & Atlanta Braves.
Peterson has been a nice surprise for the Mets so far this season as he has had two solid outings against the Boston Red Sox & Atlanta Braves. Petersen had 8 K’s in his last outing agianst the Braves and I think he can get us a quality start tonight with 5-7 K’s.
We are going with a 3-man Boston Red Sox stack in their good match-up agianst Chase Anderson of the Blue Jays. For the Red Sox, we are going with Rafael Devers, Xander Bogaerts, & Alex Verdugo.
Staying in this match-up, we’re going to be once again going with the Blue Jays Cavan Biggio who I think will come through with another HR tonight agianst the Red Sox Zack Godley.
We’re going with a couple of power RHB bats of the Cincinnati Reds in both Matt Davidson & Nick Castellanos in their match-up against the LHP Brett Anderson.
We’re going to pay up for Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich in his match-up agianst the RHP Anthony DeSclafani of the Reds.
Rounding out the team, we’re getting some value at the Catchers position in Seattle Austin Nola who is hitting .324 on the season and is 6 for 10 with three doubles, one triple, and a HR over his last three games.
