Results: L, -$226Analysis:
This is a cheap price to get a pitcher I consider elite in Carlos
Martinez. Martinez has been wilder this season and getting less
ground ball outs than usual, but he's among the National League
leaders in strikeouts. The Brewers are a good matchup for him
because they are a free-swinging tean that strikes out a lot. The
Cardinals have won 19 of Martinez's last 27 road
I also like St. Louis' bullpen better than the Brewers' pen
especially the closer.
Milwaukee starter Zach Davies figured to regress this season and
that's been the case. Davies isn't a hard thrower so he needs good
control. Yet already he has walked eight in 14 1/3 innings after
only giving up 38 bases on balls in 163 1/3 innings last season.
His ERA is a fat 8.79.
