* – “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 are the five 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.

Top 5 Hitters for 4/21/2014

Dustin Pedroia vs. Wei-Yin Chen – hitting .500 (11/22) with 4 2Bs, a 3B, 4 RBIs & 2 BBs

Nick Swisher vs. Jeremy Guthrie – hitting .350 (14/40) with 5 2Bs, a 3B, 2 HRs, 9 RBIs & 6 BBs

Ian Kinsler vs. John Danks – hitting .387 (12/31) with 3 2Bs, 4 HRs, 5 RBIs & 2 BBs

Adrian Gonzalez vs. Cliff Lee – hitting .500 (11/22) with 3 2Bs, a HR, 3 RBIs & a BB

MATCHUP OF THE DAY

Neil Walker vs. Mike Leake – hitting .323 (10/31) with 4 2Bs, a HR, 11 RBIs & 6 BBs
Walker has been hot hitting .300 with 4 homers in the last 7 days. In the last series against the Reds this season, he went 5/12 with a pair of homers. Love this matchup today.

Other guys I like today: Russell Martin,  Jason Kipnis & Austin Jackson

Movie of the Day – Pain & Gain – One of the funnier movies I have seen in recent time. Wahlberg, Mackie and the Rock were a hilarious trio in this. If you haven’t seen it yet, you are missing out for sure.
