Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, May 1-3
G.Gonzalez @ Eveland -the shine
is off Eveland, but I’ll try Gio against the strikeout-prone
Vazquez – I’ll give Javy one more chance
Harrison @ King
Davies @ Price
– mismatch of the night, which means the Royals will win
Dice-K @ Bergesen – good
matchup for Dice-K’s return
Slowey @ Masterson –
Masterson melted down last time but I’ll give him a second
Hudson – nice matchup for
both against weak offenses
Halladay – if Pelfrey passes
this test he’s officially graduated, at least for now!
E. Rogers @
Gallardo @ Latos – Latos got
smashed last time and the Brewers can do some smashing
Haren @ Silva – can Silva
silence the powerful D-backs??
Duke @ Haeger
Hughes – sitting it out on Buehrle right now
Sheets @ Marcum
– sitting it out with Sheets, too
Greinke @ W.
Weaver @ Verlander –
Wilson @ Fister –
favorable matchup for both pitchers
Carpenter – Harang isn’t out of the woods yet
Norris @ Lowe –
favorable matchups for the pitchers
Jackson @ Gorzelanny – E-Jax
will bounce back vs. weak Cubs
Chacin @ J.
Sanchez – Gustavo Chacin!? Really!??!?
Kuroda – I wouldn’t start Karstens, but deep and NL-only leaguers might gamble here based
on how bad the Dodgers are without Manny
Cecil @ Talbot – great
2-start week for Cecil
Meche @ Peavy
– last chance for Peavy before the bench
Scherzer @ Baker
Baker running out of leash also
J. Garcia @
Maine @ Leake –
reasonable place to gamble on Maine
Jimenez @ Correia –
Correia pitching well, and at home
Ditch on Lowe. I know it’s the Stros but he literally has one good start and
in that start he walked 7. Prey on the weak is fine so feel free to ignore but I
smell a trap.
Pitch on Gorz, risky because the D-backs are on all cylinders but I’m digging
it was Gustavo I would have said PITCH!!!! I still wear his
For Monday, I
think Peavy starts a turnaround a la Lester just not as good.
is borderline DTM, luckily for him he’s had two really good starts this year. Pitch.
test for Garcia, the angel on shoulder says ditch or more specifically put on
bench but the devil says leave the kid in the fire.
on Maine. One start against a screwed up LA club does not a pitch
