ANALYSIS

Wednesday's MLB Best Bets: Adrian Sampson, Graham Ashcraft, and the Strikeout Watch List

This is it, people. The 2022 MLB season is a wrap. We had ups, we had downs, but most importantly, we bet on baseball every single day since the beginning of April. I'm proud of us. We did a great job. But there is still one day left and damn it, we need to find a ladder to the moon. It's the right thing to do. You know it, I know it, FanDuel knows it. One thing should be noted about this list though. On the first two guys, I skipped the first rung and went right to six strikeouts. If either one of them gets home at six, the day will be glorious. Be aware, if you only want to go five, nobody will make fun of you. It's fine. Also, the last guy's 5+ number was available at FanDuel, and then it wasn't. He's just listed at 3.5 now with no ladder options. I am fairly confident that is just a glitch and the ladders will be available soon (probably).

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.
