- Gerrit Cole – Just like Verlander yesterday, Cole is in a smash spot and has the best matchup by far. The absolute only reason you should fade him today is if you are trying to get some leverage on this two game slate. My advice, however, is to play him and try and get different elsewhere – this matchup is just too juicy for Cole.
- Blake Snell – Snell knows what’s on the line in today’s game and possesses the most upside out of the remaining three pitchers we have to choose from. When he’s on, he’s a stud, and this is going to be the most important game he’s pitched in his career. I think Tanaka will be the most popular SP2, which also puts me on Snell.
