Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, April 16-18
Guthrie @ Tomlin – I like the matchup for Guthrie, who has been very impressive so far.
Holland@ F. Garcia – Holland working his way towards grad status but I’m sitting him for this one.
King Felix @ O’Sullivan
Reyes @ Beckett – Is Beckett back? We’ll find out.
Chatwood @ Floyd
Baker @ Niemann – Losing patience with Baker but I’ll try him vs. erratic Rays offense.
Verlander @ Braden – Braden a little risky but coming off strong outing.
Gallardo @ Marquis
McDonald @ Volquez – I don’t have a problem if you sit Volquez here.
Pelfrey @ Jurrjens – Let’s see how Jurrjens does in season debut before starting him.
An. Sanchez @ Hamels – I think Anibal will bounce back from slow start but I’m not taking any chances in Philly.
Latos @ Figueroa
Coleman @ Hammel – Starting Hammel a toss-up but we can afford to take more risks early in the season.
Zito @ Saunders
McClellan @ Kershaw
Bergesen @ Talbot
Litsch @ Lester
Duensing @ Hellickson – I like what I’ve seen so far from Duensing.
Haren @ Buehrle – Buehrle so unpredictable but I’ll give him a chance here.
Pineda @ Francis – Francis hot and M’s offense woeful.
Penny @ Cahill
Ogando @ Sabathia – Wouldn’t blame you if you play it safe and bench Ogando for this one.
TBD @ Leake
Volstad @ Blanton
Estrada @ Livan – I follow the bench Livan no matter what approach.
Young @ Hanson – Young to the DL is inevitable but it hasn’t happened yet!
Richard @ Myers – I’ll take a chance on Richard, even on the road.
Dempster @ Al. Johnson – Dempster struggling but still racking up the strikeouts.
Bumgarner @ Enright – I’m letting Bumgarner work out the kinks in unappealing matchup.
Carpenter @ Billingsley
Romero @ Dice-K – Matsuzaka worse than DTM right now.
Jackson @ Price – Maybe Edwin will throw another no-no @ TB. Maybe not.
Liriano @ Tillman – Not concerned about Liriano.

Carmona @ Davies
Scherzer @ Vargas
Marcum @ Halladay
