Pitch or Ditch for Tuesday, September 28

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 day. 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.

Please….Keeper help
Made the finals, thanks! H2H 12team 7keeper 15hit/15pitch stat cat….I?m thinking sure keepers are M. Cabrera, Posey, Hamilton?.what final 4 would you keep from these??Kinsler, Fielder, M Holliday, Stanton, Hanson, B Myers, CJ Wilson, Colby Lewis, Strasburg, N Feliz…Thanks for the help, POD, articles – the whole thing.

evilempire,

I’d definitely go with Kinsler, Fielder and Holliday for three of those slots and would lean towards Hanson for the fourth. It’s close between him, Stanton, Feliz and even Myers but I like the idea of keeping at least one pitcher and Hanson’s still on the rise. Feliz is worthy of consideration but the uncertainty surrounding his 2011 role (starter or reliever?) hurts his keeper value, at least for the time being. I think he’ll be more appealing if he remains in the closer role.

Hey Guys,

I have 30 innings left to secure at least 2 wins (moves me up 2 points) and maintain a lead with saves. I am looking towards tomorrows matchups. I have Chacin against a terrible Dodgers offense, Bumgarner against Arizon who is leading the majors in strike outs, and can pick up Lowe who has been nasty as of late. I had intended to save at least one start for Lester who is going on Sunday but that is also the last day. I can also make up a bit of ground with K’s if I can get a solid number from one of the starters (part of the reason I was saving a spot for Lester). I would appreciate any advice.

Thanks,
Vande

Championship week….I have Infante but Furcal is available…who would you advise to start? Furcal has steals but will he play

Vande,

It sounds like you can gain more in wins and strikeouts than you can lose in ERA and WHIP, so I’m totally fine with you pitching Chacin, Bumgarner and Lowe. You’ll still have some innings left over after tomorrow to save for your “blowout day.” There’s even a chance that you’ll be able to start Lester, but the higher priority should be to go as much over the innings limit as possible in that one final pitching day.
**********************************************
alshan,

Stick with Infante. Who knows how much Furcal will play this week. Plus, he only has one steal over his last 14 games.

Zach

zthx I will….do many of you have Alvarez from Pitt….he is tearing it up for me so much better than Rolen
