Buehler has allowed 14 hits and eight runs in his last 17 innings, and he has a 2.64 ERA and .207 allowed batting average at home. Gonzalez isn't the pitcher I want to see on the mound against this Dodgers lineup at home, especially when the Dodgers are still playing for home field advantage in the playoffs. There's just not much I can do with the Colorado Rockies here. Give me the Dodgers and the RL for a cheaper price.
