Pitch or Ditch for Tuesday, May 12
***Sonnanstine @ Hendrickson *he’s been better and against good teams maybe he is
finding a groove. You could do worse.
***Galarraga @ ***Slowey *Galarraga
passing Sonnanstine in the night but he can bounce back. I don’t love Slowey but
he can be effective. His last start was rain shortened so can’t really count
***Cahill *Hochevar killed me last year but he was hot in minors,
this could be a Brett Cecil type opportunity for a guy to come and get a lineup
he can handle out of the gate. Cahill’s strikeout numbers make me think he is
destined to be a twin.
***Kershaw @ Park *Kershaw definition of risk vs
***Wellemeyer @ ***Duke *Wellemeyer is hot, do it, do
Koronka @ ***Parra *Got your honky tonk koronka donk!!!!
Ditch. I’m starting to think Parra may just get his degree and
***Jimenez *Ubaldo needs a good one here and he
could be back to low grade graduate.
***Cory adds “I say
pitch on Hochevar (A’s might be the worst offense in baseball) but ditch on
Cahill (brutal K-BB and Royals don’t suck offensively).”
recognize that Manny Parra is a big gamble, and the Nationals don’t suck
offensively anymore either. I still say pitch, but this might be one to average
your eyes until it’s over.”
