The work week is closing to an end for most. We're mentally planning the debauchery we plan/hope to get into this weekend. Maybe that's only for the single fellas like me? I don't know. But I always have time for you, my loyal followers, so you better believe I'm breaking down the Friday matchups before I got out on Friday and make it happen.  

* NOTE: Players are listed in alphabetical order for the sake of making them easily sortable/findable. The matchups are also generated based on Batter vs. Pitcher data. Just because a player is not listed does not mean that he is a bad or good play. The players listed below are mentioned merely because of the BVP data for the matchup.


Ray Flowers and Jeff Mans will be answering your questions live from 2-3 PM EDT. Continue...

California Chrome 

K. Morales (now with Twins 85% PT), Ethier or M. Sounders ROS?

Ray Flowers 

Zeevi Becker – Flores has little value. Davis is hitting well of late, but still not exciting, no walks, no OBP, no avg. Bruce I like a lot, expect him to rebound, like I do with Longo. // Donaldson is a great add. Polanco is a tremendous talent/unknown. Cabrera is hard to figure. Good, but can't keep this up. Martin nice speed add. Closers are always nice. Get the five.

Zeevi Becker 

I get: Donaldson, Polanco, Melky Cabrera, Leonys Martin and Hector Rondon ----- I give: Evan Longoria, Jay Bruce, Khris Davis and Wilmer Flores

Ray Flowers 

Richard Costa - Easy answer. Just check out my player rankings for first base:

Michael Magid - Hammel just keeps tossing up solid efforts. Only once in last 10 over 3 ER. Marlins not as good on road. Solid start.

Ray Flowers 

Jessie Mook - you are of course correct. Good call.

Richard Costa 

Ray, need to make room for Mike Napoli or drop him shortly. I also have Jon Singleton and Juan Francisco at CI. Would you just drop Napoli or choose from Singleton and Francisco.

Michael Magid 

Ray, any thoughts on Hammel facing the Fish today?

Jessie Mook 

Eddie Butler is a RHP. You highlight Van Slyke against him, but he most likely won't play against a rightie.
