The first thought that crosses many handicapper’s minds when considering an MLB selection is “I am looking for a hot team and a hot pitcher”. But there is another side of that coin. My opinion is that there is even more money to be made by going against the worst pitchers in MLB. The sooner you identify them, the more profit you will make.
The list that follows is the “Top 20 auto fade pitchers in MLB” through Sunday, May 27, 2018. Granted, we would have made a lot more money if we would have identified these starters April 1st. There is still, however, money to be made by fading these guys. And you would have to find a very good reason to play on them. Some of these guys have already been booted back to the minors, relegated to the bullpen, or have suffered injuries and are on the DL. Keep this list handy. They may return! Regardless, with 20 pitchers on this list, there is almost always a good chance for at least a couple of “Auto Fades” every day. The list is prepared in order of the worst ERA’s to the best. Included, of course, is the pitchers name along with his TRGS record (team record games started… its how we get paid) and their OPS.
Note that in order to qualify for the list a pitcher must have 3 qualifying factors.
1) Minimum of 5 starts with a TRGS that is 3 or more games below .500
2) An ERA of 5.00 or worse and OPS of greater than .800 or worse.
3) An OPS of > than .800 or worse
|Pitcher Name||TRGS||> 5.00 ERA||> .800 OPS|
If you had played against all these pitchers from Day #1 you would be 120-38 (and on your way to the islands for a vacation). As prices escalate to go against these Top 20 Auto Fades, consider using the OPS information and the runline data on the articles at this site.
