SideLeague’s MLB Fantasy Plays for 8/14/14

Pitchers

John Lackey – Lackey gets to take on the abysmal Padres at home. People will be definitely overlooking Lackey with guys like Scherzer, Strasburg & Shelds throwing as well.

James Shields – The matchup against Oakland looks a bit scary on paper but his name is Big Game James for a reason. I think he’ll put on a solid performance.

Chase Anderson – Anderson had himself a nice ball game in his last start, he gets in Miami team that’s offensively bi-polar and strikes out 24% of the time. You could maybe do better today, you could definitely do worse. Give the kid a shot!

Hitters

Devin Mesoraco – Coors Field. Mesoraco’s gonna go deep tonight. If he doesn’t go deep tonight, I’ll eat my hat.

Adrian Gonzalez – Gonzalez goes up against Harang today. Harang started off hot, now he’s kinda not. Look for AGon to have a nice day at the plate.

Javier Baez – Baez hit his 1st home run at home last night. The people went bonkers. This kid is going to crush pitching, I think he does it this afternoon.

Nolan Arenado – Coors Field. Arenado is going to hit the ball well and he’s going to hit it often.

Jean Segura – Segura’s gonna be overlooked but he’s got a nice matchup against Edwin Jackson today and when he gets on base he can create all kinds of problems.

Carlos Gomez – Again, great matchup against Edwin Jackson.

Yasiel Puig – Again, Harang is gonna get beat up today. Baseball-wise, not like in a physical way. Well, he might. I can’t speak on that.
