Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, June 11-13
SATURDAY (SIANO’S PICKS)
Talbot @ Colon
Lackey @ Morrow
Lewis @ Baker *Lewis looking to bounce back, Twins lineup doesn’t hurt. I don’t trust Baker at home vs this team but feel free to disagree.
Pineda @ Scherzer *Very nice
Price @ Guthrie
Gonzalez @ Danks
Paulino @ Pineiro *Pineiro allergic to the QS, Paulino a nice AL-only play, he does well here he gets on mixed radar.
Garza @ Lee *I’m a big Garza supporter and he deserves to be out there but this is a tough one for anyone, especially only one start removed from DL. Run him out there and don’t watch like Cory says.
Leake @ Lincecum
Minor @ Lyles
Dickey @ McDonald *Last time they faced off it was a pitcher’s duel, weak lineups.
Kennedy @ Vazquez
Carpenter @ Greinke *Very nice 2
Lilly @ Hammel
Lannan @ Richard *Johnny Long Beach is on a roll, blue plate special.
SUNDAY (ZACH’S PICKS)
Tomlin @ F. Garcia – Tomlin fading…I won’t risk it here.
King Felix @ Porcello
Lester @ Drabek
W. Davis @ Matusz – I don’t trust Davis at all right now.
Moscoso @ Humber
Harrison @ Liriano – Despite shaky last start, pitch Harrison…great matchup. Liriano improving but I’m ditching vs. TEX.
Mazzaro @ Chatwood – Chatwood not a terrible play in deeper formats but I won’t risk it vs. new and improved Royals lineup.
D. Hudson @ Hand
D. Davis @ Oswalt
Capuano @ Correia – Capuano not good vs. Pirates last week so he’s due!
Hanson @ Myers – Myers DTM until further notice.
Westbrook @ Marcum
R. De La Rosa @ Jimenez – De La Rosa decent in first career MLB start but this one could get ugly.
Zimmermann @ Stauffer
Volquez @ J. Sanchez – Pitch Volquez at your own risk.
MONDAY (ZACH’S PICKS)
Carrasco @ Burnett – A.J. back in my doghouse.
Cobb @ Coke
Haren @ Vargas – Vargas 3 ER over last 16 1/3 IP.
Pelfrey @ Maholm – Maholm 3 ER or less in 6 of his last 7 starts.
Duke @ Nolasco – Duke worth using in NL-only leagues or very deep mixed.
Lowe @ Wandy
Wolf @ Dempster – Dempster still a bit shaky but settling down.
Moseley @ Cook – Last time Moseley pitched in Coors: 4 IP 6 ER
Arroyo @ Kuroda – Arroyo always a gamble but I’ll go for it here.
