Daily Matchups for 8/15/2016
P- Drew Smyly (vs. San Diego Padres): $9,000. The slate for pitchers is very weak for Monday. With that said, I’ve decided to go cheap on pitching and hope for the best. Smyly has been very good recently. He has thrown four straight quality starts, with a 2-0 record, and a 2.52 ERA. Over the last seven days, the Padres have a .669 OPS, which ranks 27th in Major League Baseball.
P- Bartolo Colon (vs. Arizona Diamondbacks): $6,800. This play doesn’t excite me, but hopefully Colon can repeat his performance from Wednesday. In his last start, he faced the Diamondbacks, and he did quite well. Over seven innings of work, he gave up one run, and struck out eight batters. At only $6,800, he provides the rest of the lineup with a great amount of cash.

At the end of this week one of the most controversial players in the sport of baseball is going to retire. Alex Rodriguez is finally going to hang up his cleats and with that action will finally relinquish the hostage situation that he was employing on the Yankees organization. Also retiring after 10 short years is a different sort of player a player who is retiring way ahead of his time. Prince Fielder is hanging up his cleats and with that action baseball loses an amazing ambassador for the game and a wonderful energetic personality for fans to enjoy. There couldn’t be a more stark contrast between any two players.
It is Sunday and time for The Sunday Request.
@sullybaseball my Sunday request is this: who will be the most controversial/most hated MLB player with arod out?

We need a good bad guy. With A-Rod gone, Bryce Harper has the chance to be that bad guy… but he needs to up his game a little.

Texas Rangers slugging first baseman Prince Fielder has announced that he is retiring from Major League Baseball due to having recently undergone his second spinal fusion surgery in the past three years. He was a star for much of his 12 big league seasons but will likely not go down as an all-time great. That being said, he was a tremendous player who has never been fully appreciated for his influence and place in the game.
