ANALYSIS

Friday's MLB Best Bets: Taijuan Walker, Clayton Kershaw, and the Strikeout Watch List

It's Friday. We woke up, so that means it's time to gamble. We all know the drill by now. We made it through the week, and now it's time to bridge the gap from the week to the weekend. The best possible way to do that is by gambling. Everyone knows that. In fact, I don't even think you can properly connect a week to a weekend without gambling. I'll have to Google that later. Lucky for us, we've got close to 100 MLB games today, so we're flushed with action. All we have to do is find the known strikeout guys and wait and see if the managers put them in the lineup. Seems pretty easy when you think about it.

Remember, we need to see AT LEAST five of these batters in these lineups when they are released. If that happens, get ready to fire away. If we don't see at least five of these names in each lineup, walk away. We'll find something better. Don't forget to be somebody today.
