Athletics Taking on the Nats: Aug 30

Written by Cartichoke

Happy Tuesday everybody, the best day to make money during the week. On this lovely Tuesday evening we have a very competitive game on our hands between the Oakland Athletics (48-81) and the Washington Nationals (43-85). I think most people will be tuning into this game tonight and watching to see which team tries to lose rather than win.

On one hand we have the A’s, an already cheap team who just traded away their two best players before the season started. Then we have the Nationals who just traded their franchise player Juan Soto as they are looking to reset as well.

Pitching for the A’s is Cole Irvin. Cole is 6-11 on the season with 98 K’s, 3.16 ERA, and a 1.03 WHIP. That record is noticeably UGLY looking, but that ERA and WHIP are looking very respectable. So far August hasn't been any kinder, he is 0-5 with a 3.55 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.

For the Washington Nationals they are putting Erick Fedde on the mound tonight. He is 5-8 on the season with 76 K’s, 4.88 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. This will be his second start in the month of August in his other start against the Mariners he pitched 5.0 innings, giving up 3 hits, 2 earned runs and 6 K’s.

The bookmakers have this game as a near pick ‘em. But I think I will have to go with the A’s. They are coming off back-to-back wins against the Yankees. I also gained the trust of Cole Irvin from him being on my squad and I just really like his stats much more than Fedde’s.
