However, the Dodgers have put together a sluggish week and Yoshinobu Yamamoto has been hittable through 16 innings where he's allowed 13 hits, 8 earned runs and has walked 4. The Mets are playing their best ball of the young season with 4 straight wins. The value is with the Mets and the big plus money. I'll take a stab with the road dog.
