When our country celebrates our independence each year on July 4th, we will most likely consume a glizzy or cheeseburger. Personally, I will eat both. I usually bypass the fruit and other distractions on the sides table and focus specifically on the hotdogs and burgers. I like to live by the rule of two; two glizzies and two cheeseburgers. This is always the goal or mission going into the holiday. Of course, I’m also consuming Major League Baseball and highlights of Joey Chestnut from the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. Fox Sports provided the line: Joey Chestnut: -4000 (bet $10 to win $10.25 total). That’s America in a bun; baseball, hot dogs, burgers and competition. The cheeseburger is a staple of
The Big Red Machine come to Camden Yards to start the week. The Birds could possibly drop the first two games and be forced to save the series on Wednesday. Cincinnati has been one of the hottest teams in the show, lately, racking off twelve consecutive wins before losing to Atlanta on Saturday. The Reds are (14-4) since calling up Elly De La Cruz, who is slashing .333 Avg. / 3 HRs / 10 RBIs / .989 OPS., and look to keep building on their success. This will be a fun series as both clubs can generate runs. Anthony Santander leads the Orioles in Home Runs (14) and RBIs (47). There will be fresh baseball in Camden Yards. Baltimore went to
The Reds' Derek Dietrich after being hit by the fifth pitch in two games. (AP Photo/Morry Gash) By: Braeden Long The Brewers will get a week-long break from ball magnet, Derek Dietrich, who found himself hit by six zingers in a four-game series with Cincinnati over the weekend. Unfortunately, a week isn't enough time to figure out how to back Dietrich down and open up the strike zone... Derek Dietrich after being hit by sixth pitch on Saturday, June 22nd. (Bleacher Report) Dietrich etched his name in the history books in Friday’s 11-7 win over the Brewers with a feat to be (somewhat) proud of. Milwaukee’s pitching staff managed to peg Dietrich three times on Friday evening which ended in warnings for both benches

Whats going on DFS Champions? We have some great match ups for the Aug. 18th, 7:05pm ET (Main Slate) on FanDuel. Bryce Harper and the Washington Nationals will be playing in Coors Field, and Clayton Kershaw is on the bump in Oakland. So without further ado, lets tap into The Wagner Wire. Pitcher - Clayton Kershaw $13,400 Its no surprise that Clayton Kershaw (10-6, 2.39) is the highest pitcher for tonight's slate. Priced at $13,400, Kershaw is worth every bit of it. Say bye to your FanDuel budget, but he is hurling against the A's at the Coliseum. The A's have been struggling at plate. They're hitting just .239 as a team, with an OPS of only .692 in August. With these numbers and
Author : Nick Rodriguez Pitcher Rankings Cash Games 1. Clayton Kershaw Kershaw has just been very dominant since after the All-Star break and I don't think he is slowing down tonight. Kershaw has an ERA OF 0.00 since the All-Star break and opponents are hitting .099 against him during that stretch. 2. Jacob deGrom deGrom is another great option on the hill and is cheaper than Kershaw. Jacob will be facing the Rays who rank 4th in strike outs this season. Jacob has an ERA of 1.83 since the All-Star break and holding opponents to a .159 AVG. 3. Jose Fernandez Fernandez has looked great since returning from Tommy John surgery with an ERA of 2.13. He is always a great option with his high strike out potential.
