MVP – Manny Machado (LAD) - $9,000 – The Los Angeles Dodgers are pretty much in a must win situation and I think they’re going to be happy that they traded for Manny Machado tonight as I think he has the best match-up on either team tonight against Rick Porcello. Machado will be cashing big paycheck this offseason as is coming off another outstanding year in which he hit .297 with 37 HR’s & 107 RBI’s. Machado was solid against RHP on the season as he posted a .298 average/.897 OPS vs. RHP and has dominated Rick Porcello in his career as in 38 AB’s, he has posted a .342 average with 2 HR’s.
IF – Max Muncy (LAD) - $8,000 – The Dodgers need to shake up their offensive line up a bit after the first two games and with an RHP on the mound, we should see Max Muncy in the lineup tonight. Muncy had a breakout season with the Dodgers as although he hit just .263, he showed his tremendous power as he had 35 HR’s & 79 RBI’s on the year. Muncy posted an incredible 1.002 OPS vs. RHP and had 20 of his 35 HR’s at Dodgers Stadium this season. Muncy was actually pretty effective vs. LHP as he posted a .890 OPS so I do have some hope that if the Red Sox bring in a LHP later in the game, Dave Roberts won’t pull Muncy from the game.
OF – Cody Bellinger (LAD) - $7,500 – The wind is blowing out to right field tonight and as Porcello allowing the Astros to hit the ball hard in his last start, I want to get another LHP of the Dodgers in my lineup with Cody Bellinger. Bellinger hit just .260 on the season however, we know he has solid power as he has 25 HR’s on the season to go along with 76 RBI’s. Bellinger had 19 of his 25 HR’s vs. RHP and posted an impressive .881 OPS vs. righties on the season. Bellinger is hitting just .128 so far in the playoffs however, he has had one of the bigger hits for the Dodgers in extra innings against the Brewers and I think he is going to come through for them tonight.
UTIL – Jackie Bradley Jr. (BOS) - $5,500 – Going to need some value for my last two picks, and it starts with the ALCS hero, Jackie Bradley Jr. I like getting Bradley Jr. in the lineup as he has HR pop and although he hits at the bottom of the order, shouldn’t be pulled late in the game as his speed and defense are too important for the Red Sox outfield that might be featuring J.D. Martinez tonight. Bradley Jr. hit just .234 on the season but did have 13 HR’s & 59 RBI’s and because he doesn’t make some of the hardest contact when he hits the ball, he has a good of a shot as anyone to send a Walker Buehler fastball over the fences.
UTIL – Matt Kemp (LAD) - $5,000 – We’ll have to make sure Kemp plays and if he doesn’t we’ll just fill in Mitch Moreland, however, I think Kemp gets the start tonight as he is 4 for 6 against Porcello in his career. Kemp has had an outstanding season for the Dodgers as he hit .290 with 21 HR’s & 85 RBI’s. Kemp actually had a better average vs. RHP as he posted a .301 average & .812 OPS. Kemp hit a HR in game one and as I like the fact he has been hitting 6th in batting order for the Dodgers when he has gotten the start, I’ll take my chances with him tonight.
