Pitch or Ditch for Friday, May 7

Pitch
or Ditch is a strategy for (ideally) daily mixed leagues in which you pick up
starters on a day-to-day basis based on how well they are pitching and their
upcoming matchups, then cut them in favor of new guys the next guy. The concept
is that the shallower the league, the more quality starting pitching is
available on the free agent wire, so rather than drafting expensive starters,
it’s better to build a strong offense and bullpen and let the free agent wire
populate your starting staff during the season. As a bonus, a handful of “PoD”
guys emerge each year as worth keeping all year long, like Jair Jurrjens last
year or Cliff Lee in ’08.

Siano and Cory I just wanted to thank you guys, I was in the cellar in my league, and in just two weeks of POD I’ve climbed to the middle of the pack in a 12 team mixed. One question, Have CJ Wilson or B. Cecil graduated in your opinion?

Hey guys,

wondering if you would take Latos or Bonderman? Both are facing terrible offenses and both have good strikeout potential but I can only grab one…help!
Thanks

jaayoub,

My choice would be Latos. The Stros have been just so terrible it’s tough to even watch them!
