ANALYSIS

Monday's MLB Best Bets: Roansy Contreras, Chase Anderson, and the Strikeout Watch List

Alright. So there are only four baseball games tonight. That's the bad news. Many people would just give up after seeing that. It's understandable. Like what the hell are we supposed to do with four games? I get that Monday Night Football is on but we can just hit the back buttons on our remotes. It's Week 3 for God's sake. We're battle-tested by now. Plus a lot of people are working with multiple screens at this point. We don't need MLB giving us a break. Not a week before October. Still, I pretended this was a 16-game slate and went through this thing four times. It wasn't easy but when I came out, I knew why I did it. Turns out, we're doing the exact same thing we did yesterday. Two pitchers, same game. Usually, you have to pay double for that kind of action but not today. Let's go!

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