Matchups to Eye for 6.16.2010

While there are a bevy of great matchups that can help your fantasy team to a monster night on wednesday, here are three guys that I expect to make a lot of nerds – sitting in front of the tv with their laptops – extremely happy:

Paul Konerko (CWS-1B) Slugging nearly .600 against pitchers whose dominant pitch is there curveball this season. Lucky for Paul, Pirates pitcher Zach Duke has allowed 5 home runs in his last two starts (both losses). Expect to see a bit of a resurgance of pop out of Konerko.

Hanley Ramirez (FLA-SS) – Okay I know he’s a marquee player but he certainly hasn’t showed much pop or speed yet (which are the stats that make him so valuable.) Well smile Han-Ram owners because he is slugging .615 against Texas pitcher Tommy Hunter in his career. And oh yeah, Hanley has stolen 3 bases in his previous 2 games.

Jonathon Niese (NYM-SP) Coming off back to back superb starts (including a complete game shutout last time out) Niese has seen great success with his fastball. As we all know, if you can locate your low-mid 90’s fastball, hitters have a tough time stringing together base-runners. Might I add that Niese will be facing the Cleveland Indians – who I seem to have been hatin on lately, oops – and Progressive Field doesn’t really garner the classification of being a hitter’s ballpark.

    Okay so Niese wasn’t as spectacular as aspected but both Han-Ram and Paul were able to use some pine.
