ANALYSIS

Friday's MLB Best Bets: Tyler Alexander, Chad Kuhl, and the Strikeout Watch List

We're on to Friday and while we have an entire college football and NFL slate ahead of us, it's important to remember that guys are still playing baseball. Somehow we're in the final days of the MLB season. In fact, this is the last Friday night of the regular season. By this time next Friday, we'll be betting playoff baseball or no baseball at all. With that in mind, I think a Strikeout Watch List is in order. We need to squeeze out whatever juice is left in this MLB season. Now we can't expect there to be good juice left, but juice is juice. We have to take what we can get on these streets. I think there are two guys on the board tonight that fit the Strikeout Watch List criteria (kind of).

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.
