Following up on my post under Mike Trout, Scherzer goes up $1 in the new formula for 5x5 pitchers this year.

Trout drops $3. That doesn't seem right.

I'll keep checking, but I've been going over my numbers all day and this is what I'm seeing.

Revised earnings for the ten most expensive hitters and pitchers are shown in the leaderboards thread.

This is a dream match up ... is there a better match up in the game today?  Maybe an argument can be made for DeGrom ... and I'm only not including Verlander for the obvious reason (he's on same team as Cole) ... and Verlander vs Strasburg is a great match up also!

It would take A LOT for me to bet against a well rested Scherzer ... so I'm with BiT that +177 udog is crazy ...
