Pitch or Ditch for Thursday, July 29
or Ditch is a strategy for (ideally) daily mixed leagues in which you
starters on a day-to-day basis based on how well they are pitching and
upcoming matchups, then cut them in favor of new guys the next guy. The
is that the shallower the league, the more quality starting pitching is
available on the free agent wire, so rather than drafting expensive
it’s better to build a strong offense and bullpen and let the free agent
populate your starting staff during the season. As a bonus, a handful of
guys emerge each year as worth keeping all year long, like Jair Jurrjens
year or Cliff Lee in ’08.

***Zach says “I agree on all of these. Vin Mazzaro (pictured above) has been pitching extremely well of late but it makes sense to take the safe route and ditch in this scary matchup.”
