Matchups, sharks, Bigfoot, vomiting. With an intro like that I dare you not to read the Daily Trends piece for May 29th. If you don't, what kind of mind do you have? Clearly it's not an inquisitive one.


DISH DIAMONDS – The Best Hitting Matchups of the Day
 
Jose Bautista has four bombs and six RBI against James Shields. He's also sporting a .321/.424/.786 slash line over 33 plate appearances against James Shields.

Adrian Beltre has a mere six at-bats against Samuel Deduno. They have been spectacular. Beltre has five hits, two homers and four RBIs.

Coco Crisp has been injured and underperformed this season, no way around those facts. He's also had five hits in 13 at-bats against Rick Porcello in his career and he's got a decent .770 OPS against righties this year.

Miguel Enguidanos - The deal works. The season is only a third old, and your already at nearly 50% of your starts. You can deal. Doesnt mean you have to, hurlers get hurt daily, but I get your thinking. This deal works give that.

Josh - Saunders. He's been incredibly hot for weeks, and he's even seeing PT against lefties. See - http://www.fantasyalarm.com/articles/flowers/18252/2014-fantasy-baseball-player-profile-michael-saunders/

Miguel, I would make that move to get Puig as long as you still have other solid SP's, but is there a better closer option you could target other than Papelbon?

Miguel Enguidanos 

I have 94 starts out of 200. I could use improvement in saves and outfield. I am thinking of proposing Cueto and CJ Wilson for Puig and Papelbon. I think it is pretty even but wanted your opinion. It is a 12 team 5x5 roto. I would still have Fister, Cole, Gallardo, Buehrle, Garza, Lyles and Latos. thanks

Josh 

14-team mix, 5x5. Bench spot: help me choose one player: Luis Valbuena, Freese, C. Quentin, Josh Harrison, Michael Saunders, Tommy Medica, Sean Rodriguez?

Derek - I wrote about Blackmon yesterday - http://www.fantasyalarm.com/articles/flowers/18583/mlb-week-9-mailbag/ . Blackmon is nowhere near as bad as folks think. Pretty fair deal here based on need. If you need OF depth, I can do this.

Derek 

Hi Ray, I was offered Blackmon for Kluber? I have lots of pitching depth and not much OF depth in a 5 OF, 10 team mixed roto. I love Kluber as I know you do, but I don't love Blackmon who is very streaky. Would you pull the trigger or hold onto the current MLB Strikeout Leader?
