Same as usual, chaps; I have 5 OF but only 3 spots to put them in. Here they are:
Bryan LaHair: The kid has been the poster boy of consistency this year, putting up power numbers along with getting on base every single game so far. Plus, he's playing the Cards tomorrow, and he's put up big numbers playing them.
Justin Upton: *sigh* He's gone from stud to dud so quickly this season, it's getting hard for me to keep putting him out there, especially with some of the other names on this list. But against Moyer tomorrow, he has a prime opportunity to get things back on track.
Allen Craig: Get a bucket of water to throw on this guy, because he is HOT. He's batting cleanup in the most dangerous hitting lineup in the NL. And he's going up against Baumgarner tomorrow, who hasn't been throwing too many Ks and has only allowed less than 6 hits twice this season.
Andrew McCutchen: He has absolutely been smoking it against lefties lately, but tomorrow he's going up against a pretty tough pitcher in Gio Gonzalez. But still, he has only failed to hit once since coming back from having the flu, so this one is kinda difficult.
Shane Victorino: While he's been pretty consistent so far to star the season, it's hard to play him with most of the guys above him on this list are just killing it. Plus, he doesn't put up monster numbers regularly, and the Phillies lineup is hurting for offense right now. Of all five guys here, this is the one I'm heavily considering benching tomorrow, especially against Garza.
Going purely on numbers and consistency so far this year, I'm thinking about LaHair, Craig, and McCutchen tomorrow, but I just feel like Upton is gonna bust out of this slump soon, and tomorrow is as good as any to do it.
Thoughts and feelings?
