Field of Streams: Episode 209 – Riding the Whale

Episode 209 – Riding the Whale

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

In this episode, Matthew Dewoskin and guest host Scott Strandberg discuss their mutual (and thankfully, unfounded) fear of lacking on-air chemistry, Scott accidentally upstaging the absent Dylan Higgins by correctly guessing the number of home runs given up against righties by Tyler Duffey, today’s wealth of outfield options leading to appealing single-team outfield stack options, Matt calling a Trevor Bauer no-hitter against Max Kepler & Friends (AKA The Minnesota Twins) tonight, and riding the revolutionary DFS wave that is Rob “The Whale” Whalen.

Contest picks for Wednesday, August 3: Kendall Graveman at LAA (Dylan), Rob Whalen vs. PIT (Matt), and Tyler Anderson vs. LAD (Scott).

Suggested DFS picks worth attention for Wednesday, August 3: Yasmani Grandal, Jonathan Lucroy, Stephen Vogt, Salvador Perez, Mike Napoli, Joey Votto, David Ortiz, Edwin Encarnacion, Brandon Belt, Jason Kipnis, Devon Travis, Nolan Arenado, Josh Donaldson, Manny Machado, Eduardo Nunez, Jedd Gyorko, Travis Shaw, Xander Bogaerts, Brad Miller, Adam Frazier, Mookie Betts, Mike Trout, the entire Rockies outfield, the entire Cardinals outfield, the entire Mets outfield, Gregory Polanco, Starling Marte, Jose Bautista, Khris Davis, Mark Trumbo, Matt Kemp, Max Kepler, Hunter Pence, Adam Duvall, Steve Pearce, Michael Saunders, Scott Van Slyke, Kole Calhoun, Jeff Francoeur, Johnny Cueto, Chris Sale, Michael Fulmer, Marco Estrada, Trevor Bauer, Tyler Anderson, and Rob Whalen.
