What a gem that was pitched yesterday in Philly. Alex Wood and AJ Burnett combined for 15 innings, 11 hits and only 1 run.

* – “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 4/18/2014

Chris Davis vs. John Lackey – hitting .344 (11/32) with 3 2Bs, 2 HRs, 6 RBIs & 3 BBs

MATCHUP OF THE DAY

Melky Cabrera vs. Justin Masterson – hitting .500 (12/24) with 2 2Bs, a HR, 2 RBIs & 3 BBs
Masterson has struggled to start the season and Cabrera has been red-hot to start the year.Melky is an easy start today!

 

Other guys I like – Nick Markakis, Justin Upton & Todd Fraizer

Movie of the Day – 30 Minutes or Less – Such an underated movie with a funny cast.  Eisenberg, Ansari, McBride and Swardson are a great in this film.
