Daily Trends: May 26th
Monday is Memorial Day, and while I'll get to the baseball matchups in a moment, I just wanted to give my personal thanks to every man and woman who serves/served our country, with a special thanks to the families of those that have been lost in battle.
DISH DIAMONDS – The Best Hitting Matchups of the Day
Michael Brantley has six hits in 13 at-bats against Jose Quintana. One of those hits was a big fly and he's also driven in three runners. Nick Swisher avoided the DL and he'll try to produce some hits Monday. He's hitting .273 with a .529 OBP over 16 plate appearances.
Tony Gwynn has six hits in 15 at-bats against Jhoulys Chacin. He has two doubles and two triples.

Christopher Backhauis - I would go Kluber. See http://www.fantasyalarm.com/articles/flowers/18570/justin-verlander-is-he-finished/ . I would go Ike Davis to fill in for Napoli.
Adding to the above, with Napoli on DL, which of the following would you add for my UTL spot: Dunn, Quentin, Ike Davis, Neil Walker, Junior Lake (for some reason, I like him), Mitch Moreland, Matt Dominguez, or Oswaldo Arcia. I need help across the board. Thanks for your help.
Hello Ray, Hope you have a nice memorial day weekend. Time to cut the losses and trade Verlander for Kluber? What you think? Thanks,
