Tabors Takes- MLB Breakdown 4/2

It feels so good to be back on the MLB grind. We have a nice 9 game slate to breakdown. Be sure to get signed up using code “RPS15” for 15% off and the best daily content for ALL SPORTS IN ONE PRICE.

This article is free every Tuesday and Thursday! My articles are always built on single entry and while I try to play MLB on Fanduel my plays are good on all sites. I play just one lineup, every day, no matter the sport. I love grinding my guys that I spent all day researching. I’m a firm believer that single entry contests are the best ones to fade the chalk for a massive advantage. So get your ass subscribed to RPS for my daily cores and let’s crush this MLB season.




Reynaldo Lopez- I’m focused on spending down at pitcher today. Castillo is the only spend up I’m considering and Bello is written up on the mid range. That leaves me with these two and Lopez probably my favorite. He’s struggles in a starting role in the past with Chicago, but I like the move to Atlanta for him. The offensive support will certainly be there and Lopez brings some of the best K upside on the entire slate. He gets his old team in a matchup that looks glorious for any pitcher and I love this price tag.


Javier Assad- Since my first two guys are both pitching in Chicago it’s worth mentioning the cold weather there tonight. Winds are intense but it’s 40 degrees for both of these guys. Assad gets the Rockies, who look awful as always. This team has been great to target early in the season and we have to love the price on Assad here. A guy that can average a K per inning in a plus matchup across the board, with great weather at $6k.


Brayan Bello- Matchups are key today. Lopez against the White Sox, Assad vs. the Rockies and we close it out with Bello against Oakland. We saw what Tanner Houck did last night with 6 innings and 10k against this putrid team. They benched their best hitter in Brent Rooker and optioned their next biggest threat to AAA yesterday, so I’d imagine the locker room feels really good about the shit team they’ve assembled. Bello was a guy I fell in love with last year and I expect a good bounce back here tonight.




Braves- first main slate with the Bravos. Sign me up. Crotchet looked incredible in his first start of the year but there’s not a lefty in the league that could keep me off of the Braves here.


Padres- Miles Mikolas is so dusty. I’m saving salary today at pitcher and getting the strong bats that stick out to me. Too many promising arms in good spots to not put my salary on the bats I trust. This slate lacks any must attack pitchers with the exception of Mikolas here. The next Dusty arms belong to Houser (not stacking Detroit) and Kyle Freeland who I hate picking on specially when it’s 40 degrees and the hitting weather sucks. Braves and Pads.


Giants- If I do want a cheap team I’m going with the Giants today. Early season is a good time to target the west coast games. I’d rather spend up on several teams over the Dodgers today because I think Logan Webb is one of the best pitchers in the game. I’m sure they score some runs because they are the Dodgers, but I don’t see the upside today. The Giants at least get a bullpen game that includes Ryan Yarbrough. With a coaching change I don’t expect as much pinch hit risk here but we will wait for lineups. Either way this Giants team always battles against LA and I expect some run support tonight.



Preference List









Ozzie Albies- Not a better switch hitter against lefties and he loves the hard stuff. Crotchet brings plenty of heat and I expect a massive game here.
