It’s hump day! This means that we’re halfway through our MLB match for the week. Hopefully, you’ve been doing well. If not, lucky for you we’ve still got 2 more days. Do remember we’ve got some afternoon games today in case you’re making tweaks to your lineup.
Johnny Cueto – Cueto probably has the best matchup on paper today. The only thing I’m worried about is the weather. Keep your eye on the forecast and to our Twitter (@sideleague.)
Madison Bumgarner – MadBum has already pitched well against this Braves team this season, going for 9 strikeouts. I see no reason why he can’t do something similar again.
Jake Odorizzi – This is your under the radar pitcher of the day. It’s a bit of a gamble, but I think as long as he holds his own against the left-handed hitters of Seattle, he’ll do just fine.
Buster Posey – Posey is 6-of-9 with 2 HR against Julio Teheran.
Jose Abreu – Jose Abreu loves hitting the ball really hard and he faces Tommy Milone who loves to throw pitches that lets hitters do exactly that.
Brian Dozier – Dozier has been quite the surprise for the Minnesota Twins, he’s actually on pace to hit 50 HR & steal 50 bases. Good matchup against Felix Doubront today.
Marcus Semien – More picking on Milone, another under the radar play.
Ian Desmond – Brandon McCarthy may have looked decent in his last couple of starts, but I don’t think it will become a trend.
Wil Myers – Will Myers faces off against Brandon Maurer, who just isn’t that good. I think Myers will break out of his mini slump.
Nori Aoki – Aoki is 4-for-9 with 3 HR against Jhoulys Chacin in his career. Another under the radar play that could pay off huge.
