Tanaka and Cueto really shut things down yesterday, wow. Both guys are looking like studs early on in the season.

 

* – “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 – D’backs, Marlins, Mets, Cubs, Reds, O’s, A’s, & Angels

 

Top 5 Hitters for 4/17/2014

Michael Brantley vs. Justin Verlander – hitting .395 (15/38) with a 2B, a 3B, 6 RBIs & 3 BBs

Ryan Braun vs. Edinson Volquez – hitting .355 (11/31) with a 2B, a HR, 3 RBIs & 5 BBs

DJ LeMahieu vs. Ian Kennedy – hitting .417 (5/12) with 3 2Bs, 3 RBIs & a BB

 

 

MATCHUP OF THE DAY

Evan Longoria vs. CC Sabathia – hitting .396 (21/53) with 6 2Bs, 6 HRs, 13 RBIs & 12 BBs
Longo has been on a skid as of late and gets this wonderful matchup handed to him on a silver plater. Start him today!

 

Other guys I like – Michael Bourn, Bryce Harper and Alex Gordon

Movie of the day – 21 Jump Street – With the new one coming right around the corner now is the time to catch the 1st one. If you haven’t seen it yet, you are really missing out on a hilarious movie.
