Randy’s Pick

Nobody has bashed Patrick Corbin over the years more than me, and I’m not excited to get behind him here. However, the Reds just lost 3 of 4 to the Cubs where the pitching staff fell on its face, and now they’re throwing out Graham Ashcraft. Through 105 innings, Ashcraft has a 5.31 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. Not great folks. The Nationals have also won 8 of their last 13 games and have seen 21.7 percent of their season’s wins since the break. The Nats have value in the underdog role, especially lately, where they’re a top-5 earner in the last 30 days. Give me the plus money.
