Daily Trends: June 27th
The weekend is ready to kick off. You got your plans made yet? The club with the homies? At home with the significant other on the couch watching a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie (don't lie guys – like you don't know what I'm talking about)? If you've got some time to devote to baseball before the weekend hits you might want to read this piece – a review of matchups for Friday, June 27th.
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.
Vince - Here's the issue, it's obvious. You HAVE to play in a lg with deeper rosters. 1 C and 3 OF? No MI no CI? What happens in a "normal" lg = Rosario struggles you bench him for two weeks and add someone else. In your lg you're almost forced to play him or drop him. Obviously you dont want to drop him, so you hold. Problem is, he drags your team down a ton while that happens. You are right, need to add a second C, and gotta do something about the staff. Deal one of your 2Bs.
HI Ray, Hope all is well. Just wondering what you think of my roster. 12 tm categories. Just wondering what you think some areas of weakness are. In my opinion its C and SP. C Rosario, 1 Pujols, 2 Kipnus, 3 Longoria, SS D Gordon, OF (3) J Upton, R Braun, H Pence, Util (2) Ortiz, J Bruce. Bench: D Murphy (mets), X Bogarts, C Blackmon. DL: P Fielder. SP: J Cueto, D Keuchel, M Shoemaker, T Bauer, J Chavez, J Beckett, L Lynn, M Stroman, DL D Pomeranz. Thanks as always
MC - Simply too much. Don't know your details, but Betts is a B+ player, Heaney and A-. You dont give that up for one A.

RT @zuckermancsn: For all the angst (plenty of it justified) over Strasburg, he's now got a 3.41 ERA and a 198/38 strikeout/walk ratio.
