Field of Streams: Episode 164 – Gonna Get Obscure Today

Episode 164 – Gonna Get Obscure Today

The latest episode of “Field of Streams” is live!

In this episode, Dylan Higgins and Matthew Dewoskin discuss a very split slate, a good pick in Justin Verlander + Jimmy Nelson, Jason Castro showing signs of life, the unfair criticism of Anthony Rizzo, not being able to have an objection opinion on James Shields anymore, trying to like Joe Mauer as a DFS pick, Eduardo Escobar vs. Eduardo Nunez, Jake Peavy being completely unpickable, Melvin Upton being good, Matt eventually being able to declare himself a genius on some Brewers picks, and what to make of a knuckleballer facing the Rockies away from Coors (no idea).

Contest picks for Wednesday, May 25: Rubby De La Rosa @ PIT (Dylan) and Matt Andriese vs. MIA (Matt).

Suggested DFS picks worth attention for Wednesday, May 25: Salvador Perez, Cameron Rupp, Miguel Montero, Brian McCann, Francisco Cervelli, Welington Castillo, Jason Castro, Eric Hosmer, Anthony Rizzo, Brandon Belt, Ryan Rua, Edwin Encarnacion, Paul Goldschmidt, David Ortiz, Justin Bour, Chris Davis, Neil Walker, Ben Zobrist, Andres Blanco, Joe Panik, Jimmy Paredes, Steve Pearce, Derek Dietrich, Robinson Cano, Adrian Beltre, Maikel Franco, Brett Wallace, Josh Donaldson, Travis Shaw, Evan Longoria, Manny Machado, Kyle Seager, Eugenio Suarez, Francisco Lindor, Brandon Crawford, Jonathan Villar, Corey Seager, Zack Cozart, Jayson Werth, Michael Conforto, Odubel Herrera, Ian Desmond, Dexter Fowler, Melvin Upton Jr., Michael Saunders, Jose Bautista, Gregory Polanco, Yasmany Tomas, Jackie Bradley Jr., Mookie Betts, Mallex Smith, the Rays outfielders, the Orioles outfielders, the Mariners outfielders, Adam Duvall, Aaron Nola, Steven Matz, Tyler Duffey, Jake Arrieta, Colby Lewis, Corey Kluber, Rubby De La Rosa, Steven Wright, Tyler Wilson, and Hisashi Iwakuma.
