CORY’S PICKS FOR SATURDAY
Jackson @ Villanueva
Carrasco @ Shields
Weaver @ Liriano – Liriano seems to be getting it together?
Buchholz @ Oliver – Buchholz definitely has it together
O’Sullivan @ Harrison
Bergesen @ Outman
Nova @ King Felix – only gambling on Nova vs. M’s
Maholm @ Wells
Stauffer @ Zimmermann
J. Sanchez @ Wolf
Duke @ Wandy
Arroyo @ Lowe – could be 8-7 or 2-1, I’d rather not find out which
Hamels @ Pelfrey – Pelfrey worth a look in deep and/or non-mixed leagues
J. Garcia @ Nicasio
TBD @ Kuroda
***SIANO SAYS “E-jack hasn’t been impressing me lately and has struggled on the road so I’m going with bench don’t cut and definitely don’t pick up. Matt Harrison, however, has impressed me (especially if I cover up the walks) and I’m not too worried about the Royals so I’d pitch him. Wolf gets a very messed up Giants lineup but he is unreliable. Buyer beware. Agree on rest.”
ZACH’S PICKS FOR SUNDAY
Beckett @ Verlander
Danks @ Romero – Danks a risky play here…I’ll sit this one out.
Masterson @ Hellickson
Haren @ Pavano – Pavano continuing his erratic ways.
Duffy @ Ogando – Dangerous matchup for Duffy.
Britton @ Moscoso
Sabathia @ Vargas – If it weren’t for his last start, I would’ve tried Vargas here…now I’ll pass.
Worley @ Niese – Worley not a terrible choice if you’re willing to take a gamble.
Moseley @ Gorzelanny
Collmenter @ Norris
Cain @ Gallardo
Karstens @ Dempster – Dempster 1 ER or less in four of last five starts.
Lohse @ Chacin
Nolasco @ Kershaw
Cueto @ Jurrjens
ZACH’S PICKS FOR MONDAY
Blackburn @ Penny – Blackburn outstanding of late. Pitch Penny vs. mediocre Twins’ lineup.
Colon @ Cahill
Big Erv @ Hochevar – Hochevar’s most recent start (7 ER) scares me off.
Arrieta @ Fister – Fister sports a 2.81 ERA at home.
Holland @ W. Davis – I don’t trust Holland. Wouldn’t blame you if you sat Davis for this one.
Carmona @ Reyes – Fausto a roller-coaster ride and I don’t like this matchup.
Peavy @ Lester – Great test for Peavy.
Halladay @ Livan
Harang @ T. Hudson – Harang has earned this one.
Happ @ Coleman – Happ risky but he’s on a roll.
Bumgarner @ McClellan
Narveson @ Wood – Narveson at Cincy scares me. Will give Wood a shot.
Morton @ Gee – Will roll the dice that this game will be 3-2 and not 8-7.
Hammel @ Billingsley
Volstad @ Saunders – Volstad hasn’t been all that bad recently but this is a terrible matchup.
