Total Bases

Miguel Cabrera
Good God! That's John Danks' music (hat tip Bill Simmons)! Miggy is a lefty murderer. Like really, he once committed murder against a left handed pitcher, and now they fear him, and so he hits really hard balls against them. Well, not really. But Danks is truly awful at this stage in his career, and while Miggy hasn't been MIGGY, he's still plenty of bat to put a total bases hurting on Danks.

Nelson Cruz
Skaggs sounds like something you could contract in Aruba after a 3 day bender, but no one will be happier to wake up to a surprise case of Skaggs than Nelson Cruz. The dude has been straight bombing this year, and should run a train on Skaggs and his utter lack of peripheral success.

 

Hits

Ian Kinsler
Read Miggy's writeup, and apply it to Kinsler. He hasn't been himself either, but it's not because he can't hit bad left handed pitchers. He's had some poor BABIP luck that shouldn't continue forever, and he'll likely be on base for the inevitable Miggy extra base hits.

Starlin Castro
It's hard to look at Pedro Hernandez's name and not feel the bile rise in your throat. I get it - I feel the same way. Castro has had a wonderful bounceback year, posting a wOBA that builds upon his promising early career numbers. The beauty of Castro? He couldn't care less about walking, and is pretty tough to strike out. Should be a lock for at least a hit.

 

Strikeouts

Clayton Kershaw
While the Braves are a pretty decent hitting team, they strike out a ton, and Kershaw strikes out 11 guys per 9 innings. 11! And he pitches deep into games. I just tried to imagine playing someone else in my top pitcher slot, and I literally couldn't. So yeah, start Clayton.

Johnny Cueto
The Marlins have had some success at the dish this year, but the beauty of Scorestreak is that we couldn't care less. We just care about the Ks, baby, and the Marlins are the 2nd best match up in the league when it comes to striking out. Our projection system likes Cueto and Kershaw as being leagues ahead of the competition. Fade them at your own risk.
