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

When I put together my top 5 hitters I factor in a few things. Prior matchup history, whether the hitter is hot and the pitchers history against that certain type of hitter. Also these matchups are normally released in the morning so make sure that you double check the weather leading up to the games in case they were postponed or just got the day off.

Top 5 Hitters for 5/7/2014

Melky Cabrera vs. Cliff Lee – hitting .333 (5/15) with a HR, a RBI & a BB

James Loney vs. Bud Norris – hitting .529 (9/17) with 2 2Bs, 2 RBIs & 2 BBs

Mark Reynolds vs. Bronson Arroyo – hitting .357 (5/14) with a 2B, 2 HRs, 4 RBIs & 3 BBs

Neil Walker vs. Tim Lincecum – hitting .375 (3/8) with a 2B, a HR, a RBI & 3 BBs

MATCHUP OF THE DAY

Brian Dozier vs. Danny Salazar – hitting .800 (4/5) with a 2B, a HR & a RBI
Salazar has been brutal this year and Dozier has a nice track record against him this season. Dozier is also much better against RHP, easy must start today.

Other guys I like: Chris Colabello, Aramis Ramirez & Jeff Hardy

Movie of the Day – Buried – This movie is very VERY good. Ryan Reynolds maybe a terrible actor but he was fantastic in this.
