The Los Angeles Dodgers have been much better vs right handed pitchers this season than the Oakland Athletics who are sporting a .228 batting average vs the Dodgers .260 batting average. The Dodgers lead the league in home runs so Frankie Montas can not afford to give up free walks. I'm siding with the Dodgers on this one as they have too much upside and possess too many ways to win.
