Daily Trends: April 29th
I'm staring at numbers all day. Scary truth? I actually dream about them at times. Seriously. I sometimes see patterns too. Maybe it should have been me and not Jim Carrey in The Number 23? I don't want to go crazy though, so before I continue to feed my unhealthy addiction I'm just gonna say have at it folks. Here is the April 29th daily piece. Stay sane. Avoid the numbers – or as Jeff Mans famously once said “don't look at the numbers.”
OK, do look at them, but you get my point.

DISH DIAMONDS – The Best Hitting Matchups of the Day
Brendan Sawyer - Drop Henderson. With the way KRod is pitching, he may never get the 9th inning back.
Here are a list of other pitchers I have that I could drop: Broxton, T Hunter, Henderson. My weakest starter so far has been Weaver. Willing to be more patient with him though.
zebeck - MadBum still is getting Ks. Velocity the same. GB/FB same as always. Walks are up a bit, but not crazy. Main culprit is that crazy .390 BABIP. The mark was .276 and .251 pat two years. Stay the course.
Brendan Sawyer - I favor Kluber over Chavez, yes. Question tho - how can you drop Chavez? If you're in a lg that you sincerely are gonna do that you need to quit that league. What has that guy done wrong? He's pitching like an All-Star. At same time, Kluber shouldn't have been on waivers. Tis the nature of 10 tm lgs.
