Clinch This! Fantasy Wednesday

Mixed reviews on Tuesday, as Cincinnati was a splendid doggy that let out a 7-run woof and Jonathan Sanchez of the Giants slapped the Diamondbacks in the mug for the second time in a week, but Clay Buccholz was pedestrian and the Marlins woke up to beat the Braves, both losses coming in 1-run games. But, a win's a win and a loss is a loss, and there's really no such thing as a bearable loss, so today we'll work extra hard for a sweep!

Brandon Moss
- If the Pirates have any chance of knocking off Ted Lilly, Moss needs to keep up his 5-for-8 career mark against him (with a homer and 2 RBI).
NOT Charlie Morton - Well, it can't possibly be any worse than his last start against the Cubs, but Morton's inconsistency leaves us with little confidence - his last time against Chicago, Morton allowed 9 runs in an inning, giving up 7 hits, 3 walks, and a homer to Kosuke Fukudome.
Jeff Francoeur - We all know he enjoys facing lefties, and John Lannan is no exception, as Francoeur is 10-for-19 off Lannan with a dinger and 6 RBI.
Josh Willingham - He's 0-for-2 off Tim Redding this year, but 5-for-15 lifetime with 2 homers
Ross Gload, Ronny Paulino - Javier Vazquez has been pretty dominant in his return to the NL, but the Marlins have seemed to get his goat, with Gload going 5-for-9 this year and batting .469 off Vazquez, while Paulino is 4-for-9 overall.
Matt Diaz, Yunel Escobar, Chipper Jones, Martin Prado - Ricky Nolasco hates the Braves just as much as Vazquez hates the Marlins...Diaz is 7-for-13 off Nolasco, Escobar is 8-for-19 with a HR, Chipper is 11-for-23 with 4 homers and Prado is 5-for-12.
Darin Erstad Erstad is 4-for-8 lifetime off Pedro Martinez, though my guess is he won't be playing.
Ryan Howard, Shane Victorino, Chase Utley - Howard has 10 hits in 20 AB against Brian Moehler with 3 homers, Victorino is 7-for-14, and Utley is 7-for-20.
Mark DeRosa, Albert Pujols, Brendan Ryan - I almost could have put Colby Rasmus in here, too, but he only had 6 AB against Bronson Arroyo; DeRosa is 10-for-22 off him with a homer, Pujols has homered 3 times, and is 13-of-40, and Ryan is 4-for-9.
Ryan Doumit - Here in game 2, we're left with a difficult matchup to predict, though Doumit is a decent 5-for-14 off Zambrano...
Luis Rodriguez - 4-for-11 off Jon Garland is right on the cusp of Roundup-worthy.

Jermaine Dye, Paul Konerko, A.J. Pierzynski
- They have not faced Carmona this year, but in the past, Dye is 6-for-17 with a homer, Konerko 3-for-7 with one longball, and Pierzynski 6-for-16.
Trevor Crowe - Same deal as yesterday, 4-for-8 with a homer off Carlos Torres
Shin-Soo Choo, Kelly Shoppach - Mark Buerhle has been anything but impressive against Cleveland this year, with Choo posting a 4-for-9 season of work (with a HR), and Shoppach 5-for-11 in his career off Buerhle with 3 homers.
Hideki Matsui, Alex Rodriguez - Neither has seen a ton of Robinson Tejeda, but Matsui is 4-for-8 with a homer and A-Rod is 4-for-6.
Carl Pavano - The Tigers-killer returns to Detroit trying to improve on his 4-0 record against the felines this year. He has a 1.69 ERA against Detroit over 37 innings, and has not allowed a home run against them with 22 K's and only 1 walk.
Nick Markakis - The only Oriole with success against James Shields, Markakis is batting .340 in 47AB off the Rays battling righty.
James Shields - How about an 0.71 ERA against Baltimore in 2 starts this year, holding them to a .204 average. Somehow, he's just 1-1 for his efforts, but today faces a pitcher the Rays scored 5 runs off in 3 innings last time.
Kevin Millar - He's hot lately, and is a .370 hitter with 4 homers off Wakefield.
Kevin Youkilis - In 54 matchups with Doc Halladay, Youkilis is a .352 hitter with a homer and 7 RBI
Erick Aybar - 4-for-9 off Derek Holland is decent, including a homer, but this game will be very tough to get a read on.
