The Padres' finished the year with a. The three-time Cy Young award winner has a beautiful matchup and is the guy roster into your cash lineups. I like to compare Clayton Kershaw to a Filet Mignon. The Filet Mignon is the one of the most expensive steaks out there, but it is one of the best. Think of Kershaw as the Filet Mignon. He is very pricey, but is one of the best in the game. In other words -- don't get that cheap, under-cooked, smelly Ground Beef; spend your money on that Filet Mignon Clayton Kershaw.

Harper crushes right-handed pitchers and Teheran gets blasted against left-handed hitters, so this is the perfect matchup for the MVP.

Like I mentioned already -- Julio Teheran was one of the worst pitchers when it came to facing left-handed hitters in , which makes Murphy an excellent play. He is a career. Brandon Belt will be going up against Willy Peralta today, which provides him with a great matchup.
Last season, Willy Peralta struggled versus left-handed hitters. He had a 5. Belt will get to hit in Miller Park today, which has allowed an average of 1. He is a cheaper first base option on today's slate that could have a big performance.
The Giants have one of the highest projected run-totals of the night, and Belt could have himself a great day. Franco will be going up against the Reds today, which has one of the highest game-totals of the day at eight runs. This looks like one of the top games to target, so what better guy to roster into your lineup than the Phillies' No.
