Pitch or Ditch for Wednesday, September 29

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.

Cueto a huge coin-toss, I’d play it safe

Wells @ Young – Wells is
hot again, so pick on the weak Padres offense

***Zach says “I’d be careful with Beckett @ home run haven U.S. Cellular…pitch only if you have to. Pitch on Cueto. Last outing was as bad as it gets but he was coming off five straight quality starts and Astros’ lineup still mediocre. Agree on rest.”
