Big Z Headlines List of Predictions

The newest feature of FS, OaD - the FANTASY ROUNDUP! The only site with the balls to tell you who is going to dominate BEFORE it happens!

NL
Carlos Zambrano
- 4-0, 1.63 ERA are the key numbers here, and Big Z has posted those exact values in his last 4 starts against the Nats. The key will be keeping Adam Dunn in the yard.
Josh Willingham - The one Nationals position player with career success against Zambrano, Willingham is 5-for-7 in his brief looks at the large, angry one.
Lincecum and Maholm - Smells like a pitchers' duel, with Lincecum on one side, and a home-dominant Maholm (2.96 home ERA) on the other.
Prince Fielder - 3 homers, 7 RBI, and a .310 average against Bronson Arroyo should look mighty fine alongside...
J.J. Hardy - 4 homers, 6 RBI, .304 numbers versus Bronson.
Joey Votto - 2 homers, 7 RBI, .400 average against Suppan.
Jair Jurrjens - Only David Wright, of the current healthy Mets, has given Jurrjens any kinds of issues. The rest of those punchless New Yorkers are going to have issues just getting off the ground.
Heart of the Braves Lineup - McCann's a .400 hitter off Pelfrey, and Chipper's taken him deep twice (hitting .308 in the process).
Ubaldo Jimenez - The Padres haven't faced Jimenez this year, and Ubaldo has held Adrian Gonzalez to a .222 BAA; that's about all you need against this Padres lineup. Be wary if making a wager on this, though, as Josh Geer, for all his struggles, has pitched relatively well against the Rockies this year. Not well enough to get his own fantasy note, but decent enough.

AL
Tigers Role-Players
- Amazingly, A.J. Burnett has held Granderson and Miggy in check, but has been burned by everyone else on Detroit, e.g. Inge (.444), Laird (.800), Polanco (.556), Magglio (.333), Adam Everett (.333), Clete Thomas (.400).
Felix Hernandez - 'Nuff said.
The Red Sox - Ricky Romero has been outstanding, but Boston has hit him very, very hard, almost from top to bottom. If you're debating about starting one of your Red Sox position players, do it.
Glen Perkins - Perkins has been nothing short of luminescent against the Rangers; the best numbers anyone on Texas has against him is a 2-for-6, courtesy of Marlon Byrd.
Vicente Padilla - Padilla has done the impossible, and shut down both Mauer and Morneau, and that, my friends, is a recipe for success.
James Shields - Almost any starter going against the Royals is a fantasy green-light, but Shields has already posted an 8-inning, 2-run outing against them this year, as well as a 2-0, 2.63 mark at Kaufman Stadium, and a career 5-0, 2.50 set of numbers against the Royals at all venues.
B.J. Upton - 5-for-12 in his career against Brian Bannister, he can be a catalyst in the Rays second half opener.
John Danks - After one bad inning that snapped a scoreless streak of over 19 frames, Danks settled back down in his last start. Markakis, Roberts and Luke Scott have given Danks minor trouble (300's average, minimal power numbers), but the rest of the Baltimore lineup is batting in the mid-100's against Danks.
Orlando Cabrera - 6-for-12 lifetime off Joe Saunders, though don't expect much in the way of runs/RBI, since Saunders seems to be locked in against the rest of the A's this year.
