#1 Grand Slam winner is the main attraction as he builds towards von mary123 06.09.2019 08:16

?Henrik Lundqvist?is a former Vezina Trophy winner and the only goaltender in NHL history to record 10 30-win seasons in his first 11 years. At the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, he led Sweden to its second Olympic gold medal. As King Henrik leads the Swedes into the semifinals of the World Cup of Hockey -- they face Europe on Sunday (1 p.m. ET, ESPN) -- we take a look at his biggest influences, both on and off the ice.Pekka Lindmark, Team Sweden goalie 1980-91He was the first one I saw on TV. I watched the games at Dads work because we didnt have the cable channel the Worlds were on. He was a great goalie and a big personality. He was my first and biggest idol.Patrick Roy, Four-time Stanley Cup winnerWhen I got into my teens, I started to follow goalies in the NHL, and Roy was one of them. Right around then, Roy won the Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche.H?kan Algotsson, Fr?lunda 1988-2001I watched all the Team Sweden goalie stars closely -- such as Rolf Ridderwall and Tommy S?derstr?m -- but I was also a big Fr?lunda Gothenburg fan and H?kan Algotsson was one of my favorites.Dominik Hasek, six-time Vezina Trophy winnerIn my teens, Hasek had just won his first couple of Vezinas, so I tried to see what he did so well. I analyzed his and Roys styles, and what kind of pads they wore, and other technical things I hadnt seen in Sweden.Roger Federer, winner of 17 Grand Slam tennis titlesOutside of hockey, I admire both the way Roger Federer plays tennis and the way he carries himself and treats the fans and the media. Hes excellent at that. We also have the same agent, so we meet every once in a while. Justin Bour Angels Jersey . LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. CJ Wilson Angels Jersey . Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. http://www.baseballangelslockroom.com/fred-lynn-angels-jersey/ . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. Jonathan Lucroy Angels Jersey . Olli Jokinen, Mark Scheifele, and Bryan Little each had a goal and an assist as Winnipeg won 5-2, handing Calgary its record-setting seventh consecutive loss on home ice. Reggie Jackson Jersey . -- Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether hell play Sunday in the Jaguars home game against the San Diego Chargers. Its a full slate Saturday, and there is no shortage of options. In fact, DFS players are going to have some tough decisions to make, most notably deciding whether to side with Jacob deGrom or Madison Bumgarner in cash games. But thats a good problem to have. Lets dive in.PitchingEliteThe Padres lineup is so exploitable that we usually offer some sort of recommendation for whichever hurler is matching up against them on that day, no matter who it is. On those rare days when its an ace thats scheduled to take on the Friars, well, thats when you push all of your chips to the center of the table in cash games. Thats the case on Saturday, with deGrom winning the matchup lottery to face a lineup thats whiffing 24 percent of the time with an 84 wRC+ versus right-handed pitching. Not only does deGrom own a 1.96 ERA and 10.2 K/9 at Citi Field this season, but he sports a 1.52 ERA and 0.99 WHIP over his last eight outings. We cant say deGrom is a must-play considering Madison Bumgarner is also pitching on Saturday, but you cant go wrong with paying up for deGrom in cash.If youre fading deGrom, its probably because of Bumgarner. The Giants ace draws a home start against Baltimore. The Orioles obviously have much more firepower than the Padres, but theyve been one of the worst teams in baseball against left-handed pitching this season (82 wRC+). They also strike out 22 percent of the time. Bumgarner is one of the best and safest pitchers in baseball, and thats only amplified when hes pitching at home. In 12 starts at AT&T Park this season, Bumgarner owns a 1.59 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 10.1 K/9, In the end, both Bumgarner and deGrom are elite plays, so youll be in good shape either way.SolidMasahiro Tanaka doesnt crack the elite tier, but his home matchup against Tampa Bay puts him in the conversation as one of the days better plays. While the Rays have been only slightly below average against right-handers this season, they are one of the most strikeout-prone teams in the majors, whiffing 24 percent of the time against righties. This gives Tanaka some nice upside even though his strikeout rate (7.4 K/9) is down this year. He has made five starts against Tampa in his career, and hes 3-0 with a 2.12 ERA and 0.74 WHIP. I wont be building around Tanaka in cash with deGrom and Bumgarner on the board, but hes a nice pivot if you dont want to spend top dollar on pitching.The Cardinals have been the most dangerous team in the NL against right-handed pitching this season (.112 wRC+). The lineup has been more middle-of-the-road since the All-Star break, however (97 wRC+), meaning Kyle Hendricks is in a better spot than you might think. One of the games most underrated pitchers, the right-hander owns a 2.17 ERA and 1.02 WHIP this year. The ERA is second-best in baseball, while the WHIP is seventh-best. Since the start of July, Hendricks has allowed zero earned runs in five of his last seven starts. Theres not enough strikeout upside here to give Hendricks much GPP appeal, but he offers the kind of stability that cash-game players covet.Gerrit Cole is one of the days better hurlers. While a matchup against the Dodgers isnt all that intimidating (102 wRC+), its not exactly a favorable matchup, either. If Cole were missing a ton of bats, that might get him into the days conversation, but a 7.6 K/9 doesnt move the needle much. The Pirates righty isnt a bad play by any means, but Id rather invest elsewhere.Aaron Sanchez is staying in the Blue Jays starting rotation for the time being, and thats good news for fantasy owners. He has been Torontos best starter, and he just continues to produce. Only once in his last nine starts has he allowed more than two runs. A matchup against Houston may look imposing on paper, but the Astros lineup has actually been below average against righties this year while whiffing at a 24 percent clip, the highest rate in the American League.With a matchup against Detroit thats not particularly favorable, Cole Hamels kind of gets lost in the shuffle on Saturday. That said, he has been lights out of late, holding a 1.83 ERA and 9.2 K/9 since the break. In fact, when he faced the Tigers earlier this season, he tossed seven shutout frames with nine Ks. Still, with so many other quality options on the board, Hamels is more of a contrarian play than a guy Im focusing on.StreamersYou dont stream starting pitchers against the Rockies at Coors Field. But when the Rockies are on the road? Thats a time to pounce. The Rockies have one of the worst offenses in baseball when on the road, sporting a 79 wRC+ with a 24 percent whiff rate. This is a great spot for Jerad Eickhoff, who ownss a 2.dddddddddddd92 ERA at home and is available in 70 percent of ESPN.com leagues.This is also a favorable spot for Eickhoffs opponent, Tyler Anderson. A free agent in 75 percent of leagues, Anderson has actually pitched well at both Coors (3.04 ERA) and on the road (3.06 ERA) this season. Hes not overpowering hitters (7.5 K/9), but hes finding success by limiting walks (1.9 BB/9) and keeping the ball on the ground (55% GB rate). He should find success against a Phillies lineup thats the worst in baseball against southpaws (71 wRC+).Dan Straily sports a 1.93 ERA and 0.76 WHIP so far in the second half, and hell carry those numbers into a road matchup with the Brewers, who strike out more than any team in baseball against righties (26 percent) and sport a bottom-five wRC+ (86). In addition to being a quality streaming option at just 31 percent owned, he also has appeal as a cheap tournament play.Matt Andriese owns a 3.10 ERA as a starter this year and finds himself in a very favorable spot on Saturday, facing a Yankees team thats helpful against right-handed pitching (87 wRC+). The Yanks do make plenty of contact, but whiffs arent Andrieses game anyway. Hes a solid streamer with an ownership percentage of just 20 percent in ESPN leagues.Also take a look at Zach Davies, who has a home date with Cincinnati. The Reds offense is one of the weakest in the majors against righties (87 wRC+), and they strike out at a healthy 21 percent clip. Available in just under half of leagues, Davies owns a 2.23 ERA in the second half. Hes not a big strikeout guy (7.0 K/9), but a strong 2.2 walk rate keeps his floor high.Rookie Luke Weaver will make his big league debut on Saturday against the Cubs. While the young right-hander has just one start at Triple-A, he rolled through Double-A this season, putting up a 1.40 ERA with a 10.3 K/9 and 1.2 BB/9 in 12 starts. Im not looking to stream him against the Cubs at Wrigley Field, but his debut is certainly worth keeping an eye on.AvoidThere might be some temptation to ride James Shields after he posted a 1.78 ERA in July. However, the blow-up potential is just too great, evidenced by the fact that he followed up that dominant July by allowing a combined 14 runs in his next two starts, the second of which he didnt even get out of the second inning. The Marlins are a decent matchup, but the risk is too high.HittingLeft-handed Mariners hitters are quality plays with Kendall Graveman toeing the rubber for the As on Sunday. The Oakland righty has surrendered a .357 wOBA to lefty swingers this season, which gives Robinson Cano, Kyle Seager and Seth Smith plenty of appeal.Mike Clevinger has made only five appearances (four starts) this season, but they havent been pretty, evidenced by the 6.97 ERA, 5.7 BB/9 and 1.7 HR/9. Right-handed batters have really punished him, putting up .487 wOBA against him. With the Angels in town, Mike Trout is an elite play if you can afford him, and Albert Pujols makes for a fine tournament option.As highlighted above, James Shields is a powder keg ready to blow. He allows lots of hard contact (34 percent), has trouble with homers and struggles against both right- and left-handed batters. As a result, the Marlins make for an intriguing stack on Saturday.Left-handed Diamondbacks hitters find themselves in a favorable spot, squaring off against right-hander Clay Buchholz in Boston. Buchholz sports a 6.31 ERA as a starter this season, which includes a .387 wOBA allowed to lefty bats. Arizona is righty heavy, but Jake Lamb is a prime play, and Michael Bourn could be a worthwhile punt in the outfield.Finally, look at Mets batters against Jarred Cosart. The right-hander has gotten knocked around in six starts this year (5.79 ERA). While hes doing a good job keeping the ball on the ground (61 percent GB rate), hes walking more than hes striking out and allowing hitters from both sides of the plate to get their licks in. Curtis Granderson, Neil Walker and Yoenis Cespedes are the names to consider in this one.Most likely to go yard: Kyle SeagerThere are plenty of worthy options on a jam-packed Saturday, but lets give the nod to Seager, who smashes right-handed pitching and gets a favorable matchup against Kendall Graveman.Most likely to swipe a bag: Ian KinslerCole Hamels does many things well, but keeping runners close is not one of them. He has allowed 19 stolen bases this year, the third most in baseball. With the Tigers in town, Kinsler is the leading candidate to get frisky on the basepaths. ' ' '
