Franklin (5-10, 4.35)       Chacin (8-5, 3.81)

Opposite-handed versions of each other, in that Chacin is a pitch-to-contact lefty who throws strikes and gives up a lot of fly balls. That those fly balls haven't been leaving the park is the main statistical difference between he and Franklin, something which I don't expect to continue over the rest of the season. It'd be nice if the M's could speed up the equilibrium process between Chacin's homers and fly balls today, after hitting three out of the park yesterday afternoon. For what it's worth, Gustavo went 8.2 when he faced Seattle a month and a half ago, allowing three runs on 13 baserunners.
