Daily Trends: May 22nd
The good and the bad matchups for Thursday are broken down by our very own Ray Flowers.
Sometimes you're inspired and greatness flows through your fingers. Today is not one of those days. Mind you even with my “Oracleness” at less than 100 percent I still feel like I've been able to lay out the matchups pretty well for Thursday, May 22nd. Hopefully you will agree. I think it's the inevitable hangover after watching Godzilla smash up the world last night.
DISH DIAMONDS – The Best Hitting Matchups of the Day
Charlie Blackmon has been a star this season, we all know it. He's also getting a chance to hit in Colorado (his home OPS is nearly 1.200) against the returning from injury Tim Hudson. Toss in a 5-for-8 spell in the matchup and Blackmon is a good bet to have success.
If Coco Crisp is healthy enough to be in the lineup he should be starting for you. He's hit two homers in 15 at-bats against Alex Cobb and he's also hit .467 with five steals. That's utter domination folks.
