Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, April 23-25
SATURDAY (SIANO’S PICKS)
Price @ Morrow *I’d leave Morrow on DL and see what happens
Carrasco @ Liriano
Jackson @ Penny
F. Garcia @ Tillman
Davies @ Ogando
Matsuzaka @ Big Erv *Dice-K on the road to redemption or done by the 4th?
Cahill @ Vargas *Vargas’ ERA is deceiving off one terrible start and he can get some Ks, blue plate special.
Lilly @ Dempster
Enright @ Gee
T. Hudson @ Lincecum
Wood @ Carpenter
Marquis @ Correia *Very hard to say ditch until he gives more reasons why. Has a sub 1.00 WHIP.
Rogers @ Vazquez
Myers @ Marcum
Blanton @ Stauffer *If you are ever going to pitch Blanton it’s here. I have no idea which Stauffer is showing up.
SUNDAY (ZACH’S PICKS)
Danks @ Scherzer
Shields @ Romero – Good test for Shields. Can he keep this up?
Nova @ Arrieta – Arrieta worth watching but no way do I pitch him here.
Gomez @ Pavano – Pavano tough to figure out this year. Two 7 ER starts but a combined 1 ER over other two starts.
Chen @ Wilson – Time for Chen’s ERA to normalize.
Lackey @ Palmer – Lackey hoping for triumphant return to SoCal.
Anderson @ Fister
Galarraga @ Niese
Jimenez @ Johnson – Outstanding pitching duel here!
Lannan @ Maholm – Might want to consider rolling the dice on Lannan if you’re feeling lucky…I’m not.
Wandy @ Wolf – Zero ER allowed by Wolf over his last two starts.
Kuroda @ Zambrano – Have to go with Big Z coming off gem.
Beachy @ J. Sanchez
Halladay @ TBD
LeCure @ TBD
MONDAY (ZACH’S PICKS)
Humber @ Burnett – I still refuse to own Burnett but he’s been decent.
Drabek @ Lewis – I’ll say yes on both though I wouldn’t blame you for sitting both.
Gonzalez @ Weaver
Garland @ Nolasco
De La Rosa @ Garza – Nice to see Garza finally doing more than just striking guys out.
Arroyo @ Estrada
Lee @ Kennedy – Dangerous matchup for Kennedy but he’s been solid in three of four starts.
Lowe @ Moseley – Appealing matchup for both.
