Daily Trends: May 13th
Even though the big news of the last 24 hours is the health of Jose Fernandez, much like the hand on a clock, time marches on giving no deference to what is occurring around it. Here are some of the better options on the hill and at the dish, as well as those that you might want to avoid, in the Tuesday matchup file.
DISH DIAMONDS – The Best Hitting Matchups of the Day
Holy cow Melky Cabrera. Fifteen hits in 27 at-bats is just sick. That's what he's done to Justin Masterson over the years. He's gotta be active Tuesday. Jose Bautista is hitting .316 in the matchup, and though he also has eight Ks in 19 at-bats he's hit two bombs while posting an uber-impressive .480 OBP.
rafael - I'm referring to the offense of the opposing team - how they are performing as it relates to the pitchers you are looking at.
Mr. Ray, when referring to the squad for that hot / cold, is the thrower's team or the other team?
Rafael - Most nights the article is posted about midnight. If your in another part of the world sorry about that, but really can't do any better when posting this piece. Ways to select a pitcher - current form, history vs team, road/home, facing team that is hot/cold, how does team hit vs lefty/righty etc. Lots to consider.
Good Afternoon Mr Ray. Thanks for your valuable article, however, I want to give me tips to select a good pitcher. What issues should I consider when selecting a good pitcher? Yesterday select san luis Cardinals and made him many races. Unfortunately as you know the daily trend not see time because of how late it is published and the time difference for my country. Thanks and regards.
