Fantasy Alarm Lineups
DISH DIAMONDS – The Best Hitting Matchups of the Day
Chase Headley might, just might, break out of his early season funk Tuesday. He's got six hits, including two homers, against Juan Nicasio. The most amazing part? Each of the 12 at-bats in the matchup have ended up in a hit or strikeout.
Russell Martin likes that slow stuff that Mike Leake is tossing up there. In 19 at-bats he's hit .474 with three RBIs. Neil Walker has also bashed Leake's brains in with a .321 average and 11 RBIs in 28 at-bats.

Hello Ray I need to bench one of the following, who should it be? Sandoval Adrian Gonzalez Napoli David Wright thanks as always
Randy Mangolt - Craig is a great buy low and Stanton could lead baseball in homers. Freeman is a rock at first. JS has a great arm, but wins have been elusive and his ratios have never impressed. Honestly, deal is very safe/fair for both sides. More about what you need - the pitcher or the 2nd hitter.
Hey Ray, Trade possibility in 12 team 5 x 5 - his Stanton and Craig for my Freeman and Samardzjia. Thoughts? Thanks again.
Paul Hansen - How can you go with three guys? Assuming it's goldy or pujols? Go Pujols and Gordon.
Better combo for tonight only: Encarnacion and Werth combo or Goldy/Pujols and Alex Gordon?
