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.#186162729 / gettyimages.comSince his first full season in 2007, Hamels is 90-67 with a 3.31 ERA.
