Bone Thugs N’ Har-Manny

Manny Machado’s $5,700 price tag should be music to fantsy owner’s ears. He simply cannot be faded at this cost.

Give Opponents a Charlie Horse

Wily Peralta’s GB rate is much lower against LHHs which means it could be bombs away for Rockies’ lefties in Coors Field. Build lineups around Charlie Blackmon.

Recipe for Success: Order Rizz-otto

Josh Smith’s career numbers allowed to opposing left-handers: .322/.433/.570 slash line and .425 wOBA. Yeah, you want Anthony Rizzo in your lineup tonight.

Talk to the Han(ley)

Hanley Ramirez is hitting a whopping .350 against LHP this season so he should be started with confidence against C.C. Sabathia in Yankee Stadium tonight.

The Carpenter’s Greatest Hits

Matt Carpenter was questionable to play yesterday and ended up hitting a bomb so definitely roster him tonight against a pitcher allowing a .305/.341/.512 slash line to LHHs this year.

All We are is Dustin the Wind

Luis Cessa has allowed a .324-plus wOBA to each side of the plate this year, including a 5.61 ERA at home, so look for the Red Sox bats to explode.

Dick(erson)’s Sporting Goods

Against James Shields, virtually any hitter in play, so lock and load Corey Dickerson and his .334 wOBA against RHP into your lineups.

Cruz Control

As per usual, lock and load Nelson Cruz into your lineup against an opposing lefty.

Brian Dozier

Doz Equis

I don’t always recommend players who I believe are going to homer on a given night, but when I do, I prefer Brian Dozier. Stay in the PayoutZone, my friends.

Crush the Opposition

Shelby Miller rarely misses a left-handed bat and has struggled with hard contact against that side of the plate as well. It could be bombs away for Chris “Crush” Davis.
