Avoid Cole Hamels vs The Mets

Cole Hamels is back after making his first start of the season and now will face a New York Mets offense that is hitting a collective .218 with a .295 OBP. Let's be honest, if you're playing in a daily fantasy baseball league, you're thinking you have to jump all over that. However I'm going to tell you why you need to avoid this matchup.



Since his first full season in 2007, Hamels is 90-67 with a 3.31 ERA. For some reason he has always had trouble beating the Mets. Hamels is just 6-13 lifetime against the Mets, and has given up more hits than innings pitched in every season except 2012.
