2013 Fantasy Baseball, The Daily Fix: September 18th, 2013

Congratulations to the Houston Astros for becoming the first team to lose 100 games on the season. Yes, that might seem a little sarcastic, but it puts them in good position to win the Carlos Rodon sweepstakes. The pitching prospect appears to be along the same lines as David Price and maybe Stephen Strasburg. Sure, sucking stinks, but when you can add a pitching prospect of that caliber on top of Carlos Correa and Mark Appel then you have the makings of a dominant roster down the road.

Meanwhile, the Reds are the latest team to enjoy their largess. Sweeping the Astros puts them back into the hunt for the NL Central division race. So far, the Cardinals have the upper hand, but the Pirates and Reds are nipping at their heels. So, playing the Astros almost amounts to a bye. At any rate, with the Nationals surging it helps keep enough air between the Reds and the Nationals.

Today, I’m playing in a Double Up! contest again. They range anywhere from a dollar to over 100 dollars, but each works the same way. If you finish in the top half you get almost twice as much as you put in. Naturally, DraftKings gets their cut because they have to pay their employees, the light bill, and make a little for their trouble. That being said, they are very generous to those that start playing as they will give you a deposit bonus you can access here.
