Did you guys enjoy the homerun show yesterday? It was crazy how many balls were flying out of the ballpark during yesterday’s games.

* – “Top 5 Hitters” highlights exceptional matchups that may include both stars, lesser-known players and those on your waiver wires.

A lot of unfamiliar matchups heading into today’s full game slate. Today is going to be a tough day to gauge when setting the lineups. Below is the 5 best matchups I could find for today. With it still being early and certain guys being hot, it’s okay to overlook a “bad” matchup if you believe that guy is going to continue on with his streak.

Not Scheduled – Full Slate

Top 5 Hitters for 4/15/2014

Russell Martin vs. Mike Leake – hitting .474 (9/19) with a 2B, a HR & 3 RBIs

Yadier Molina vs. Marco Estrada – hitting .571 (12/21) with 2 2Bs, a HR & 5 RBIs

Brandon Moss vs. Garrett Richards – hitting .462 (6/13) with 3 2Bs, a HR, 3 RBIs & a BB

Hunter Pence vs. Josh Beckett – hitting .412 (7/17) with a HR & 2 RBIs

Daniel Murphy vs. Bronson Arroyo – hitting .462 (6/13) with 2 2Bs & a RBI

MATCHUP OF THE DAY

Edwin Encarnacion vs. Phil Hughes – hitting .353 (12/34) with 4 2Bs, a Hr, 5 RBIs & 4 BBs
The bat for EE hasn’t been great this year but he does have 5 hits in his last 3 games as well as a very favorable matchup today. Also right handed hitters are hitting .412 against Hughes this season. Get him in the lineup for sure today.

TV Show of the Day – The Wire – I was talking with someone on twitter about this last night and just realize how this is easily one of the greatest shows of all time. If you haven’t seen it, I would advise in starting it as soon as you can.
