So, who do I like?
Zack Greinke ($8600): Last week, Greinke outpitched Kenta Maeda, tossing six innings and allowing a single run. Today, his opponent is Hyun-Jin Ryu, who last time on the mound was chased away after four innings after allowing six runs. Greinke all the way.
Anthony Rizzo ($6700): As of today, Rizzo has driven in 100 runs and hit 31 home runs. He is facing Steven Brault, who will be making his first big league start of 2017. During six relief appearances for the Pirates this season, Brault has accumulated a 5.93 ERA and a 1.90 WHIP over the course of 13 2/3 innings.
