The battles continue to rage on in Week 9 of the major league season. Players surge and fail, just how it is. Ray Flowers will try and point out some of the batter versus pitcher tidbits that you will need to know about as you try and set your lineup for May 27th.

DISH DIAMONDS – The Best Hitting Matchups of the Day
Everth Cabrera loves him some Wade Miley. In 17 at-bats Cabrera has hit .471 while swiping two bags.

Robinson Cano feasts on Jered Weaver to the tune of a .394 average and .848 OPS over 33 plate appearances.

Jason Castro has four hits in 10 at-bats against Jeremy Guthrie. Two of those hits were homers, and he also has four RBIs. He has 29 Ks and only three walks in May though. Yikes.

Vince - Thanks. Was busy with work, but a good time with family was still had. Chisenhall should be added, yes. Rendon has slowed in May, so you can make the move right now (don't drop Rendon of course). Synd just had a setback with his elbow, and is being tested. Conflicting reports from Mets. I'd avoid for now. Polanco/Taveras higher than Singleton. I have no idea who is available though, so can't really say.


Hi Ray. Hope you had a nice weekend. Just a couple quick thoughts. Is Lonnie Chisenhall worth a pick up and start in a 12 tm league over Anthony Rendon? Also who is the better fill in for a NA spot on the roster. Noah Syndergaard, Jon singleton, or any other prospect that you feel could have a impact this year. Most of the top names are already off the board. Thanks
