Daily Trends: April 24th
Thursday is the mid point of the baseball week. Three days have been completed, three days lay ahead – yes, I just explained to you the story of the seven day week. Hey, how many of these intros can I write that say the same thing – here's a report on the daily matchups?
DISH DIAMONDS – The Best Hitting Matchups of the Day
(image) Matt Adams gets to take on Bartolo Colon who hasn't looked great this season. Adams is destroying righties with a .391 average in 64 at-bats. Oddly he has only one homer.
Michael Brantley is off to a really strong start this season. Should continue Thursday versus Bruce Chen and the Royals. Brantley has worn Chen out over the years with 10 hits in 19 at-bats (.526).
