Scott Podsednik – There are very rarely players ranked this low that have a tremendous track record against a very god pitcher, and I encourage you to take advantage in daily fantasy baseball games. Believe it or not, the Red Sox slap hitter is batting .500 against Zack Greinke with an out of character .735 slugging percentage. Pods has played in 17 straight games (eclipsing his previous season high of 7) and is batting .333 over that stretch.
