That Was Close

I had a close call yesterday with Prince Fielder but he got a hit in his last at bat and than was taken out for a pinch runner but he did come through and now I’m hoping to keep it going. The current BTS leader is at 29 after going with Miggy and Tulo but Tulo was postponed due to the weather in Colorado but he will fall in time. Drag is still going with Altuve and Altuve was a great choice this weekend since he has a 29 game hitting streak against Oakland so next time he faces Oakland that is definitely somebody I’m looking at. Let’s do it.

Good luck to all and hopefully we will all have a streak after tonight.

Well My Streak Ended Again

Well I lost my streak at 5 and another streak ended thanks to Salvador Perez. Pelfrey decided to pitch well last night but this is why BTS is so hard. You never know what the pitcher is going to do on a certain day. The current BTS leader is at 25 after going with Hosmer but he will fall in time. The good Professor didn’t make a pick again and it’s either he forgot or he didn’t like anybody last night but hopefully he does make a pick but it doesn’t matter since he has a lot of time. Let’s do it.

Disclaimer: My personal picks can change without notice based on lineups.

Moustakas Made Me Sweat

Mike Moustakas made me sweat it out but it all counts the same. Moustakas hit a double in his last at bat of the game but like I said it’s all the same either way. I will say that Adam Jones was the one who single handedly murdered the leaderboard yesterday when he went 0 for 2. Most of the current leaderboard yesterday had Adam Jones and every one of them lost their streak. The highest streak is now at 22 but they will fall in time as well. Let’s do it.

Recap Of April 20th– 

Adam Jones- 0 for 2

Adam Jones- 0 for 2

He killed the leaderboard by himself when he went hitless. Most of the current leaderboard had him and they all lost their streak so it’s wide open yet again.

Miguel Cabrera- 0 for 3

Mike Moustakas- 1 for 4

Hit a double in his last at bat of the game in the 8th but it’s all good to me. Was the first half of my Double Down.

Nelson Cruz- 2 for 5

Had another great game. Is on a 9 game hitting streak but I’m not riding it because eventually it has to end. Was the second half of my Double Down.

Jose Altuve

Jose Altuve

is my second pick for tonight against

Taijuan Walker

Taijuan Walker

and Seattle. For all stats see Recommended Picks above.

Current Record: 10-6- Moustakas made me sweat but it’s all good.

Current Average: 43 for 119 for .361

Double Down Record: 10-6- I will stop it eventually when I feel there is only one good hitter a day or when I get to 10 whichever occurs first.

Other Potentials For April 21st– 

Grady Sizemore

Grady Sizemore

could do well tonight against Dan Haren and Miami. He is starting as that lineup has already been released. Sizemore has 3 hits for a .130 average so far this season. Sizemore has 11 hits for a .550 average against Haren in his career so far. Sizemore had 2 hits for a .667 average against Haren when he last faced him in 2011.

Melky Cabrera

Melky Cabrera

should do well tonight against Carlos Carrasco and Cleveland. Melky has 13 hits for a .260 average so far this season. Melky has 6 hits for a .545 average against Carrasco in his career so far. Melky has 1 hit for a 1.000 average against Carrasco so far this season. Melky has been hitting and he was the one that knocked Carrasco out last week but I think he will get a hit off of him again tonight.

Joe Mauer

Joe Mauer

could do well tonight against Jason Vargas and Kansas City. Mauer has 12 hits for a .250 average so far this season. Mauer has 12 hits for a .400 average against Vargas in his career so far. Mauer has 1 hit for a .333 average against Vargas so far this season. Mauer has hit Vargas well and I think that will continue tonight.

David Ortiz

is another pick that I feel could do something tonight against Chris Archer and Tampa Bay. Ortiz has 9 hits for a .220 average so far this season. Ortiz has 6 hits for a .400 average average Archer in his career so far. Ortiz had 4 hits for a .364 average against Archer last season. Ortiz has hit Archer well and he could do something but he isn’t my top choice.

My other potentials went 2-1-0 yesterday. Altuve didn’t do anything which was a surprise against Iwakuma and it was tough for Drag who lost his 10 gamer with Altuve but I know he will get back on track tonight. Good luck to all.

Trout Killed The Leaderboard

I knew the day would come when the leaderboard would get killed and yesterday was the day. The leader fell at 28 when he doubled yet again and had Mike Trout and Trout was the one that killed the leaderboard yesterday. He had his second straight game where he went 0 for 4 and now tonight he will go 3 for 4 against Oakland. This is why BTS is super hard to win and nobody will if they keep on doing Double Down even at 28. Doesn’t make any type of sense at all. Good job to Drag for getting to 10 after continuing to ride the Altuve train. Altuve is on a hitting streak and he is riding him which is smart and hopefully he will keep it going. Let’s do it as there is an 11 o’clock game today which is the annual Patriot’s Day game in Boston.

could do well tonight against Hisashi Iwakuma and Seattle and I think he will extend his hit streak as well. Altuve has 16 hits for a .320 average so far this season. Altuve has 10 hits for a .400 average against Iwakuma in his career so far. Altuve had 6 hits for a .429 average against Iwakuma last season. Altuve is currently on a 9 game hitting streak and I think he will get to 10 tonight against Iwakuma.

My other potentials went 2-1-0 on Saturday but I think today they will all do well but if anybody goes hitless it will be Gyorko. Good luck to all and Drag hopefully you will keep it going.

Disclaimer: My personal picks can change without notice based on lineups.

Another Quick Night

I had another quick night when both of my picks got a hit in their first at bats of the game so I’m back on the board again and I can only hope I can keep it going. Great job to Carol and Drag for keeping their streaks going. Carol did a Double Down again and was successful with Bogaerts and Adrian. The current leader is at 26 after going with Miggy and Kemp early yesterday but he will fall in due time. He will make that one mistake as everybody does. Let’s do it.

Recap Of April 17th– 

Adrian Gonzalez-

Adrian Gonzalez- 3 for 4

Got a hit in his first at bat so I was good just because of that. Had another great game and is hitting great. Was the first half of my Double Down.

Sleeper Picks For April 18th– 

Freddie Freeman

Freddie Freeman

is on here yet again and I’m hoping he is starting to hit and he will get a hit off of

Anibal Sanchez

and Detroit. Melky has 6 hits for a .162 average so far this season. Melky has 69 hits for a .315 average against Detroit in his career so far.

Pick To Avoid For April 18th– 

Miguel Cabrera

Miguel Cabrera

is somebody who I wouldn’t even touch for today against

Chris Sale

Sale has given up 73 hits for a .220 BAA Detroit in his career so far. Sale gave up 15 hits for a .211 BAA Detroit last season.

Disclaimer: My personal picks can change without notice based on lineups.

That Is The Nature Of The Game

Well Jose Reyes got 1 at bat and he grounded out and than was taken out of the game due to an injury. This is the risk you take playing BTS because an injury can happen at anytime and he is somebody I have to watch in case he does go on the DL. It looks like I will have to do 1 a day after a few days but great job to Carol for getting to 10 with Lind. I didn’t even sniff double digits last year but she is the first this year. The leader who is at 24 will fall in time and hopefully it will be this weekend. Let’s do it.

Disclaimer: My personal picks can change without notice based on lineups.

Both Came Through

I will say that both of my picks came through last night and in their first at bats of the game as well so it was quick and easy but I’m only at 2 because of it but hopefully it will start my run. The current BTS leader is at 20 but they will fall in time. It has to happen like always. The big leaderboard killer is coming quicker rather than later and I hope it happens in the next few days. Carol leads the group with a streak of 7 thanks to Adrian last night so great job Carol but Drag is right behind her at 6 thanks to Altuve so great job to Mark in Chicago as well. Liber and the good Professor are also at streaks along with myself so hopefully we will keep this going. Let’s do it.

Recap Of April 14th–

My other potentials went 3-0-0 yesterday. All 3 had hits so I’m doing well on this as well. Good luck to all and hopefully we will keep it going.

 

Well That Was Bad

I thought for sure that Freddie Freeman was going to do something. He was facing a pitcher he killed and he already had a hit off of him last week so everything looked great but nope. It wasn’t to be and he went hitless for the second day in a row but it’s only the second week of the season so it’s all good. This may put me on my way to 57 but we will see. Great job to Drag, Carol and the good Professor for upping their streaks but it’s all good because I will be back on the board tonight. Let’s do it.

Recap Of April 13th– 

Jose Altuve- 3 for 4

Jose Altuve- 3 for 4

Dumbest decision I made this year was changing from him to Freeman today. I never do that ever and I won’t anymore. I had him for today the whole week but decided against it but should of went with it. Continues to rake against Kazmir.

Robinson Cano-

Robinson Cano- 1 for 4

Hit in his first at bat of the game against McCarthy which is not unusual but that was all he did.

Freddie Freeman- 0 for 3

Freddie Freeman- 0 for 3

Another pitcher who he killed and already got a hit off of he did nothing against. Was one of my Sleepers and the first half of my Double Down. He did hit two balls hard but at people.

David Wright- 1 for 3

David Wright- 1 for 3

Got a hit in his first at bat against Harang and that was all he did. Was my other Sleeper.

Desmond Jennings- 1 for 3

Desmond Jennings- 1 for 3

Got a hit off of Dickey and I thought he wouldn’t. Was my Pick To Avoid.

Mike Trout- 2 for 4

Mike Trout- 2 for 4

Is hitting well to start the year and I was worried but he doesn’t worry me at all. Was the second half of my Double Down but got his hit first.

Recommended Picks By MLB For April 14th– 

Miguel Cabrera

Miguel Cabrera

is going to be the man this year. When I say he is on fire he is ON FIRE!!! He will cool off eventually but it won’t be right now and I think he is a great pick for tonight against

A.J. Burnett

A.J. Burnett

and Pittsburgh. Miggy has 15 hits for a .517 average so far this season. Miggy has 244 hits for a .314 average in Interleague Play in his career so far. Miggy has 2 hits for a .500 average in Interleague Play so far this season. Miggy has 57 hits for a .270 average against Pittsburgh in his career so far.

Miggy had 1 hit for a .333 average against Burnett when he last faced him in 2013. Miggy hasn’t hit Burnett well but the way he is hitting I think he will come through tonight. A.J. Burnett is making his second start of the 2015 season tonight and I think he is going to get hit hard tonight. Burnett has given up 4 hits for a .211 BAA so far this season. Burnett has given up 272 hits for a .226 BAA in Interleague Play in his career so far. Burnett gave up 37 hits for a .285 BAA in Interleague Play last season.

Burnett has given up 29 hits for a .236 BAA Detroit at home in his career so far. Burnett gave up 5 hits for a .227 BAA Detroit at home when he last faced them in 2013. Burnett pitches well against Detroit and Miggy but the way Miggy is hitting I think he will come through tonight.

Buster Posey

Buster Posey

could have a great game tonight against

Christian Bergman

Christian Bergman

and Colorado. Posey has 7 hits for a .250 average so far this season.  Posey has 97 hits for a .379 average against Colorado in his career so far. Posey has 0 hits in 4 at bats against Colorado so far this season. Posey has 41 hits for a .342 average against Colorado at home so far this season. Posey has 4 hits for a .800 average against Bergman in his career and last season so far. Posey has raked against Bergman and he isn’t hitting great but I think he will get at least one hit tonight. Christian Bergman is making his first start of the 2015 season for Colorado tonight and I think he will pitch well. Bergman has given up 0 hits so far this season but that was in a relief appearance. Bergman has given up 17 hits for a .333 BAA San Francisco in his career and last season so far. Bergman has given up 8 hits for a .308 BAA in AT&T Park in his career and last season so far. Bergman is making his first start of the season tonight and he might get rocked or he might pitch well but it’s a different game every day and he could be on tonight and shut down San Francisco.

Sleeper Picks For April 14th– 

Michael Brantley

Michael Brantley

is a pick I personally like if he does play tonight. Brantley hasn’t played since Friday because of an injury but hopefully he will be ready to go tonight against

Jose Quintana

Jose Quintana

and the White Sox. Brantley has 1 hit for a .125 average so far this season. Brantley has 71 hits for a .267 average against the White Sox in his career so far. Brantley had 24 hits for a .324 average against the White Sox last season. Brantley has 36 hits for a .267 average against the White Sox at home in his career so far. Brantley has 10 hits for a .500 average against Quintana in his career so far. Brantley had 5 hits for a .556 average against Quintana last season. Brantley hasn’t been playing at all and I would check lineups before hand because if he plays he is a serious consideration. Jose Quintana is making his second start of the 2015 season tonight and he could pitch well but we will see. Quintana has given up 9 hits for a .375 BAA so far this season. Quintana has given up 48 hits for a .221 BAA Cleveland in his career so far. Quintana gave up 26 hits for a .286 BAA Cleveland last season. Quintana has given up 16 hits for a .184 BAA in Progressive Field in his career so far. Quintana gave up 7 hits for a .280 BAA in Progressive Field last season. Quintana pitches well in Cleveland usually but if Brantley plays I would definitely pick him but wait for lineups which will probably be out in an hour or two.

Adam Jones

Adam Jones

is looking like a great pick for tonight against

CC Sabathia

CC Sabathia

and the Yankees. Jones is another hot batter and he could continue that tonight. Jones has 11 hits for a .440 average so far this season. Jones has 131 hits for a .276 average against the Yankees in his career so far. Jones has 3 hits for a .750 average against the Yankees so far this season. Jones has 65 hits for a .281 average against the Yankees at home in his career so far. Jones has 3 hits for a .750 average against the Yankees at home so far this season. Jones has 17 hits for a .304 average against Sabathia in his career so far. Jones had 3 hits for a .200 average against Sabathia when he last faced him in 2013. Jones is hot right now and he is somebody I would consider for myself as well but we will see what happens as lineups come out. Sabathia is making his second start of the 2015 season against Baltimore tonight and he could get hit hard tonight. Sabathia gave up 8 hits for a .333 BAA Toronto in his first start so he hasn’t pitched well so far. Sabathia has given up 193 hits for a .246 BAA Baltimore in his career so far. Sabathia gave up 38 hits for a .284 BAA Baltimore in 2013. Sabathia has given up 132 hits for a .274 BAA in Camden Yards in his career so far. Sabathia gave up 23 hits for a .277 BAA in Camden Yards in 2013. Sabathia didn’t face Baltimore last season but I think he will give up at least one hit to Jones tonight.

Sleeper Pick Record: 10-3-1- Freeman screwed me and he won’t be picked for a while right now.

Pick To Avoid For April 14th– 

JD Martinez

JD Martinez

is a pick that I don’t feel will do anything tonight against

A.J. Burnett

A.J. Burnett

and Pittsburgh. Martinez is another Tiger that has been hot but he could be shut down tonight. Martinez has 9 hits for a .290 average so far this season. Martinez has 39 hits for a .245 average in Interleague Play in his career so far. Martinez has 1 hit for a .333 average in Interleague Play so far this season. Martinez has 20 hits for a .241 average against Pittsburgh in his career so far. Martinez has 1 hit for a .333 average against Pittsburgh so far this season. Martinez has 9 hits for a .180 average in PNC Park in his career so far. Martinez has 1 hit for a .333 average in PNC Park so far this season. Martinez has 0 hits in 10 at bats against Burnett in his career and the only time he faced him in 2012 and I think that will continue and he will do nothing tonight. For A.J. Burnett’s stats see Recommended Picks above.

Pick To Avoid Record: 3-4- Jennings did get a hit off of Dickey which was a surprise.

My Pick(s) For April 14th– 

Adam Jones

Adam Jones

is my first pick for tonight against

CC Sabathia

CC Sabathia

and the Yankees. For all stats see Sleeper Picks above.

DJ LeMahieu

DJ LeMahieu

is my second pick for tonight against

Tim Hudson

Tim Hudson

and San Francisco. LeMahieu has been absolutely hot and I really think and hope that continues tonight. LeMahieu has 15 hits for a .517 average so far this season. LeMahieu has 42 hits for a .294 average against San Francisco in his career so far. LeMahieu has 3 hits for a .750 average against San Francisco so far this season. LeMahieu has 22 hits for a .324 average in AT&T Park in his career so far. LeMahieu has 3 hits for a .750 average in AT&T Park so far this season. LeMahieu has 3 hits for a .333 average against Hudson in his career and last season so far. LeMahieu is the hottest hitter in the NL and I think that will continue tonight and he will extend his hitting streak to 8. Tim Hudson is making his second start of the season for San Francisco tonight and I think he will get hit hard tonight. Hudson gave up 5 hits for a .238 BAA in his first start of the season but I think he will get rocked tonight. Hudson has given up 85 hits for a .238 BAA Colorado in his career so far. Hudson gave up 21 hits for a .233 BAA Colorado last season. Hudson has given up 30 hits for a .167 BAA Colorado at home in his career so far. Hudson gave up 9 hits for a .170 BAA Colorado at home last season. Hudson has pitched well against Colorado at home but I think LeMahieu will get at least one hit tonight.

Current Record: 5-4- I get hot and than a downer comes. Hopefully that won’t happen anymore. Double Down sucks but will do it for now.

Current Average: 25 for 73 for .342

Double Down Record: 5-4- Freddie Freeman ruined my night but it’s only the second week.

Other Potentials For April 14th– 

Mike Aviles

Mike Aviles

is another Indian I like against Jose Quintana and the White Sox. Aviles has 3 hits for a .214 average so far this season. Aviles has 75 hits for a .280 average against the White Sox in his career so far. Aviles had 17 hits for a .395 average against the White Sox last season. Aviles has 39 hits for a .295 average against the White Sox at home in his career so far. Aviles had 5 hits for a .357 average against the White Sox in Progressive Field last season. Aviles has 8 hits for a .421 average against Quintana in his career so far. Aviles had 5 hits for a .625 average against Quintana last season. Aviles hasn’t hit well but I think he will start tonight and I think he will get at least one hit tonight.

Hanley Ramirez

Hanley Ramirez

is another pick that could do something tonight against Stephen Strasburg and Washington. Ramirez has 8 hits for a .296 average so far this season. Ramirez has 158 hits for a .335 average against Washington in his career so far. Ramirez has 0 hits in 2 at bats against Washington so far this season. Ramirez has 101 hits for a .445 average against Washington at home in his career so far. Ramirez has 0 hits in 2 at bats against Washington at home so far this season. Ramirez has 5 hits for a .313 average against Strasburg in his career so far. Ramirez had 1 hit for a .333 average against Strasburg last season. Ramirez has been hitting to start the year and he might do well tonight but he is facing Strasburg and anything can happen so I would be careful.

Melky Cabrera

Melky Cabrera

is the last pick I feel will do something tonight against Carlos Carrasco and Cleveland. Melky has 5 hits for a .208 average so far this season. Melky has 58 hits for a .276 average against Cleveland in his career so far. Melky had 9 hits for a .360 average against Cleveland last season. Melky has 33 hits for a .337 average in Progressive Field in his career so far. Melky had 8 hits for a .571 average in Progressive Field last season. Melky has 5 hits for a .500 average against Carrasco in his career so far. Melky had 1 hit for a .500 average against Carrasco last season. Melky hasn’t been hitting but maybe tonight is when he gets it going against Carrasco and Cleveland.

My other potentials went 2-1-0 yesterday. Hanley went hitless but most of the time I hit two out of the 3 but I’m hoping to get back on track tonight and I think I will. Great job to Carol, Drag and Professor for having a streak and I won’t lie. Miggy scares me tonight against Burnett but you never know what is going to happen. Good luck to all.

Disclaimer: My personal picks can change without notice based on lineups.

Easy Day

I had an easy day yesterday in BTS. Miggy is absolutely raking right now but he always kills Cleveland so that’s not a surprise at all. Adrian made me wait but he did wind up with 2 hits so I was good. Drag and Carol kept their streaks along with Mark Liber so we are all doing well right now and hopefully we will keep it going today/tonight. There is only one person left who is still perfect at 16 but they will fall. Let’s do it.

Recap Of April 12th– 

Adrian Gonzalez- 2 for 5

Adrian Gonzalez- 2 for 5

He actually lowered his average but is still hitting well. Was the second half of my Double Down.

Dustin Pedroia- 0 for 4

Dustin Pedroia- 0 for 4

Was the person who killed the leaderboard. Was shocked he went hitless and than was taken out of the game.

Freddie Freeman- 0 for 4

Freddie Freeman- 0 for 4

This was a huge shock. I didn’t see this one coming. I thought he was going to get at least one hit off of Colon. Was one of my Sleepers.

Alex Rodriguez- 1 for 2

Alex Rodriguez- 1 for 2

Did get a hit off of Buchholz. Was my other Sleeper.

Ben Zobrist-0 for 4

Ben Zobrist-0 for 4

Did nothing against Felix as usual. Was my Pick To Avoid.

Miguel Cabrera- 4 for 4

Miguel Cabrera- 4 for 4

Absolutely murdered the Indians the whole weekend. Had 11 hits in the 3 games but that’s not unusual for him to do against them. Was the first half of my Double Down.

Recommended Picks By MLB For April 13th– 

Jose Altuve

Jose Altuve

is now starting to hit and he could continue to hit against

Scott Kazmir

Scott Kazmir

and Oakland. Altuve has 5 hits for a .192 average so far this season. Altuve has 54 hits for a .338 average against Oakland in his career so far. Altuve had 29 hits for a .358 average against Oakland last season. Altuve has 25 hits for a .325 average against Oakland at home in his career so far.

Altuve had 6 hits for a .462 average against Kazmir last season. Altuve is starting to hit and he rakes against Kazmir and I think that will continue tonight. Scott Kazmir is making his second start of the 2015 season tonight and he could continue to pitch well. Kazmir has given up 1 hit for a .045 BAA so far this season. Kazmir has given up 37 hits for a .233 BAA Houston in his career so far. Kazmir gave up 21 hits for a .216 BAA Houston last season. Kazmir has given up 13 hits for a .333 BAA in Minute Maid Park in his career so far. Kazmir gave up 5 hits for a .227 BAA in Minute Maid Park last season. Kazmir hasn’t pitched well in Houston and I think that will continue and he will give up at least one hit to Altuve tonight.

Robinson Cano

Robinson Cano

could get hot and start hitting tonight but we will see what happens. Cano usually does well against

Brandon McCarthy

Brandon McCarthy

and the Dodgers. Cano has 3 hits for a .120 average so far this season. Cano has 200 hits for a .298 average in Interleague Play in his career so far. Cano had 25 hits for a .321 average in Interleague Play last season. Cano has 7 hits for a .250 average against the Dodgers in his career so far.

Cano had 2 hits for a 1.000 average when he last faced McCarthy in 2013. Cano hasn’t faced McCarthy or the Dodgers since 2013 so he might get on track tonight but I would be careful.

McCarthy has given up 79 hits for a.264 BAA in Interleague Play in his career so far. McCarthy gave up 23 hits for a .343 BAA in Interleague Play last season.

Sleeper Picks For April 13th– 

Freddie Freeman

Freddie Freeman

is a pick that I think will come through tonight against

Mat Latos

Mat Latos

and Miami. Freeman didn’t come through against Colon yesterday but he just faced Latos last week and I think he will hit him well again. Freeman has 7 hits for a .280 average so far this season. Freeman has 71 hits for a .256 average against Miami in his career so far. Freeman has 5 hits for a .385 average against Miami so far this season. Freeman has 39 hits for a .289 average against Miami at home in his career so far. Freeman had 4 hits for a .108 average against Miami at home last season. Freeman has 10 hits for a .625 average against Latos in his career so far. Freeman has 1 hit for a 1.000 average against Latos so far this season. Freeman already got a hit off of Latos this season and I think he will get at least one hit off of him tonight as well and continue to hit Latos. Mat Latos is making his second start of the 2015 season against Atlanta again. Latos has given up 6 hits for an .857 BAA so far this season. Latos has given up 55 hits for a .289 BAA Atlanta in his career so far. Latos has given up 6 hits for an .857 BAA Atlanta so far this season. Latos has given up 16 hits for a .242 average in Turner Field in his career so far. Latos gave up 9 hits for a .409 BAA in Turner Field when he last pitched there in 2013. Latos usually gets rocked in Atlanta and I expect the same tonight and I expect Freeman to get a hit again off of him. Freeman was my sleeper yesterday as well but Colon pitched well in Atlanta usually and that did not change.

David Wright

David Wright

could do well today against

Aaron Harang

Aaron Harang

and Philadelphia. Wright has 8 hits for a .320 average so far this season. Wright has 193 hits for a .285 average against Philadelphia in his career so far.

Wright had 1 hit for a .143 average against Harang last season. Wright usually hits Harang well but he didn’t do much against him last season but I think he will get at least one hit off of him tonight. Aaron Harang is making his second start of the 2015 season tonight. Harang has given up 2 hits for a .095 BAA so far this season. Harang has given up 72 hits for a .269 BAA the Mets in his career so far. Harang gave up 6 hits for a .092 BAA the Mets last season. Harang has given up 41 hits for a .240 BAA in Citi Field in his career so far. Harang gave up 4 hits for a .089 BAA in Citi Field last season. Harang has pitched well in Citi Field in his career but I think he will give up at least one hit to Wright tonight.

Sleeper Pick Record: 9-2-1- Freeman failed yesterday but I dont’ think he will fail tonight.

Pick To Avoid For April 13th– 

Desmond Jennings

Desmond Jennings

is somebody who I would avoid for tonight against

R.A. Dickey

R.A. Dickey

My Pick(s) For April 13th– 

Freddie Freeman

Freddie Freeman

is my first choice for tonight against

Mat Latos

Mat Latos

Mike Trout

Mike Trout

is my second choice for tonight against

Ross Detwiler

Ross Detwiler

and Texas. Trout has 8 hits for a .400 average so far this season. Trout has 72 hits for a .316 average against Texas in his career so far. Trout had 21 hits for a .266 average against Texas last season. Trout has 39 hits for a .328 average in Rangers Ballpark in his career so far. Trout had 11 hits for a .275 average in Rangers Ballpark last season. Trout has never faced Detwiler in his career but I think he will rake tonight. Ross Detwiler is making his second start of the 2015 season tonight and I think he is going to get spanked tonight. Detwiler has given up 10 hits for a .435 BAA so far this season. Detwiler has given up 1 hit for a .250 BAA Anaheim in his career and last season so far. Detwiler has never pitched in Rangers Ballpark but I think he will get hit and hit often and hit hard tonight and I think Trout is a great pick.

Current Average: 23 for 66 for .348

Double Down Record: 5-3- Great games by both of my picks.
