Daily Trends: May 12th
Monday of Week 7. There's been plenty of the expected thus far in 2014 though there has also been a heaping helping of out of nowhere stuff as well. You just never know in the whacky world of baseball. Here are some of the more interesting matchup based tidbits for Monday, May 12th.
DISH DIAMONDS – The Best Hitting Matchups of the Day
Cheap play Monday? How about Daric Barton. The A's long time prospect and no time producer has six hits in 13 at-bats against John Danks, and it's not like Danks has impressed anyone with his performance this season.
David DeJesus hits well against Felix Hernandez. Who knew? DD is hitting .323 with a homer and five RBIs in 31 at-bats. Evan Longoria has also enjoyed some success batting .316 with a homer in 19 at-bats (note that he also has nine Ks).
Vince - Well, he's a must add. I'd avoid blowing the entire budget, we still haev 4+ months to go. The $40 spot you dropped on Bruce sounds about right again.
Hey Ray. Last week I was able to pick up jay bruce for $40 fab. $60 left and the same guy who dropped bruce just dropped David Ortiz. So same question. How much would u spend to get him? Thanks as always
