POD Category Chart Version V
Below you’ll find the updated Pitch or Ditch category chart:
Even though there are only 25 pitchers listed as DTM, I strongly advise everyone to choose their PoDers carefully. Now is not the time to risk losing a significant number of points in ERA and WHIP as it’ll become more and more difficult to repair the damage as the end of the season draws near. Don’t waste valuable innings on mediocre pitchers facing less than ideal matchups.
A reminder as to how the chart works:
divided all the starting
pitchers in the Majors into four groups:
Aces, Pitch or Ditch graduates, Pitch or Ditch guys and DTM’s (players
you shouldn’t even think about starting right now). Keep in mind that these
classifications are geared towards 12-team mixed leagues and are of
course subject to change as the season progresses. We’ll be posting
updated versions every two weeks.
Some of these decisions were very tough so let us know what you think. All opinions are welcome.
