This week’s matchup is an NL Central battle with the hard throwing phenom Aroldis Chapman from the Reds going up against All-Star leftfielder Ryan Braun from the Brewers. Though he only appeared at the end of 15 games last season, Reds pitcher Chapman wowed fans with his 100mph pitches and darting slider, but command remains an issue. Ryan Braun well, he enjoyed a Ryan Braun season last year, hitting over .300 while driving in 103 runs and hitting 25 home runs. Think you can best the young hard throwing lefty with Braun? If you can, you’ll walk away with $400 to the MLB.com store; can’t think of a better way to celebrate opening day.
