Robinson Cano – Everyone knows that he is an elite 2B, but why should you spend top dollar on him tonight? Consider that he had hit 64% of his home runs at home and that he is batting 99 points higher against right handed pitchers. That’s a pretty convincing argument, and that doesn’t even include his success against Josh Beckett over his career. Cano holds a .329 career batting average against the Boston righty, with an amazing 54.2% of his hits going for extra bases (leading to a .589 slugging percentage in 73 career at bats). He leads all Yankees in doubles, home runs, and RBI versus Beckett, and there is no reason to think he won’t add to that total tonight, proving himself worth every penny it takes to roster him in daily fantasy baseball games.

Philadelphia Phillies – This offense has underachieved all season long, but that shouldn’t bother daily fantasy baseball owners, as you play in a 1 game season. The Phillies hold a .330 team batting average against Randy Wolf, with Placido Polanco (.500 batting average) and Juan Pierre (.389) leading the way. The two pesky hitters atop the order figure to give the power hitters (6 differnet players have taken Wolf deep on the Phillies roster) plenty of RBI opportunities. Jimmy Rollins has seen his power pick up in the seasons second half, so don’t let his low batting average prevent you from rostering him against the Brewers. Wolf has surrendered 65% of his home runs at home this season, giving me even more confidence in Philly connecting for at least one round tripper. Read more here…
