POD for Sunday-Monday
Pitch: Kershaw (Tigers are erratic), Sabathia, Lilly, Maine, Beckett, Cabrera (even though he’s slumping), Nolasco (yep), Jackson (yep), Cook (yep), Contreras, Baker, Wang, Oswalt, Eveland, Meche (yep), Owings (although he’s running out of chances).
Ditch: Robertson, Maddux, Litsch, Millwood, Bailey, Maholm, McClung, Myers (beyond DTM… it’s as if he never even existed), Boggs, Correia, Redding, Washburn, Campillo, Saunders (Braves are terrible on the road but Saunders is slumping and has a very bad reverse home/away split).
As you can see from the above list I really like the bump I expect some pitchers to get in their first time out vs. some unfamiliar interleague opponents.
Pitch: Colon, Hamels, Jurrjens, Pelfrey, Weaver, Miller, Verlander, Lincecum.
Ditch: Francis, Silva.
Pitch: Maine, Beckett, Maddux, CC, Lilly, Litsch, Wang, D-Cab, Oswalt, Eveland, Owings, Contreras, Cook, Saunders
Pitch: Pelfrey, Hamels, Weaver, Verlander, Lincecum, A. Miller
ALSO NOTE: Just minutes after Friday’s show ended, J.J. Putz was placed on the 15 day DL, so the guys weren’t aware of this at the time!
