“VALUE PICKS FOR TUESDAY MLB”
The Twins have proven to be a bit more competitive at the start of the 2012 season. Though they’ve only earned five overall wins, they return home to face the Red Sox after splitting four in the Bronx and taking one of three at “The Trop”. Jamey Carroll has done his job at the top of the Twinkies batting order setting the table for big boppers Mauer, Willingham and Morneau. The Red Sox are a team influx right now having just gone through that nightmarish home series with the Yankees, and Josh Beckett has been awfully hittable. Minnesota’s meat of the order has all hit him hard, and Carroll’s hit safely against him in 6-of-18 lifetime at-bats. If he continues to be a pest in this spot, he’ll have a solid fantasy MLB night that gives the Twins a shot at winning the opener.
Though the Cardinals have seen plenty of Jeff Samardzija through the years, they were mystified when they faced him at home on Friday the 13th. They looked clueless through the first four innings, but come the fifth, St. Louis started hitting him with regularity posting five runs on an endless number of hits before the final out of the inning was recorded. We have a feeling it’s going to be ugly from the get-go this time around with the flamethrower set to battle the Redbirds for the second time in 10+ days. You’ll probably churn out one of the top daily fantasy baseball scores of the night if your roster consisted mostly of Cardinals, but we’ll trim it down and put an option to buy out on Matt Carpenter who went 2-for-3 with a triple and two RBI in the first go round.
“NOT WORTH THE PRICE TAG”
A serious trend has started to develop for Marlins 3rd baseman Hanley Ramirez. He’s hitting at a tremendous .379 clip with three HRs and nine RBI at brand new Marlins Park, but the former All Star has dragged ass on the road hitting safely in just 4-of-28 plate appearances (.143) to go along with nine strikeouts. And now he has to face lefty Johan Santana who he’s just 3-for-21 against lifetime with seven Ks; the three hits were all singles. On top of it, Johan will come into this start super motivated after tossing the shortest stint of his career his last time out – stay away from Hanley’s lofty price tag here!
