Pitch or Ditch Extravaganza (July 2-5)
Halladay @ Villanueva – Villanueva is intriguing but not vs. the Phils
Zito @ Scherzer – hang with ‘em
Narveson @ Pavano – Narveson worth a gamble in deep/unmixed leagues
McClellan @ Niemann
TBD @ Holland
Saunders @ Outman
Kershaw @ Weaver
Luebke @ Fister
Humber @ Garza
Carmona @ Bailey

Miller @ Happ – Miller a good gamble in deep/unmixed leagues
Arrieta @ T. Hudson
Davies @ Chacin
McDonald @ Lannan (Gm 1 of DH) – gamble on J-Mac vs. icy cold Nats offense

Vogelsong @ Porcello – Porcello so awful lately that he’s a ditch even vs. woeful SF lineup.
Lee @ Reyes
Lohse @ Hellickson
Greinke @ Blackburn – I’m sitting Blackburn here following terrible outing vs. Dodgers.
Kennedy @ Gonzalez
Latos @ TBD – Latos continuing his erratic ways but gotta start him in Safeco.

Britton @ Beachy
Beckett @ Lyles
Floyd @ Lopez – Floyd risky but last start @ COL encouraging.
Hochevar @ Hammel – Hammel struggling at home but solid matchup.

Worley @ Nolasco – Not sold on Worley.
