Daily Trends: April 10th
Monday through Friday each week The Oracle will give his thoughts on the best and worst matchups of the day.
You would also be wise to bookmark the following two sources to check daily after you read this wondrous piece (I'm so afraid of giving myself props).
Fantasy Alarm Lineups
DISH DIAMONDS – The Best Hitting Matchups of the Day
Kholmes - Adding Hudson is a fine move. However, Wheeler's arm is so much bigger that I can't suggest, at this point of the season, that I would drop the youngster for the vet.
Hey Ray, Thanks for all the great work you do! What do you think about dropping Zack Wheeler for Tim Hudson?
Miguel Enguidanos - I will go with Markakis over the entire group. My thoughts on Solarte are here - http://www.fantasyalarm.com/articles/flowers/18351/oracle-report-a-039-s-pen-injured-arms-worries/
Trying Raburn today (0.1 owned) and dropped Nick Markakis. How do you feel about Callaspo, Solarte, Itzuris and Kubel going forward instead of Markakis. One of your cohorts likes Solarte. Derek Norris is doing ok too for now.
A's Closer Situation - http://blog.sfgate.com/athletics/2014/04/10/jim-johnson-out-as-as-closer-hes-not-surprised-by-move/
Towlie - Let me say this... there is no clarity as to who the A's would turn to if they remove Johnson: Doolittle, Cook, Gregerson. Doolittle best arm, but he's lefty so who knows.
Besides Gregerson, any other relievers in the Oakland bullpen to pick up that might make a difference if Johnson loses the role (maybe he's hurt, or just keeps blowing saves). Just kind of an insurance .
