Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, July 23-25
Harden @ Burnett – Harden an intriguing play in deeper leagues but I won’t chance it.
Penny @ Baker – Penny just too inconsistent. I’ll hold off on Baker in first start back.
Pineiro @ Bergesen – Pineiro pounded last time out…and it was the A’s!
Jackson @ Huff – Favorable matchup for Edwin.
Beavan @ Beckett
Niemann @ Francis – Niemann 1 ER or less in four of his last five outings.
Villanueva @ Harrison – Scary matchups for both.
Wandy @ Wells – Can’t trust Wells at all right now.
Lowe @ Bailey – Braves’ lineup not scary.
Latos @ Kendrick – Latos solid over his last four starts. Beware of the Padres’ lineup!
J. Garcia @ Correia
Capuano @ Hensley
Hammel @ Collmenter – Gotta stick with Collmenter while he’s hot!
Wolf @ Vogelsong
Gorzelanny @ Lilly – Gorzelanny’s a decent gamble in deeper leagues. I don’t trust Lilly.
Humber @ Masterson
Gonzalez @ Colon – Bartolo’s back on track.
Chatwood @ Guthrie – Guthrie coming off QS but hasn’t posted back-to-back quality starts since late-April.
Pineda @ Wakefield
Cobb @ Paulino – I’d gamble on Paulino here vs. mid-tier Rays lineup.
Porcello @ Liriano
Cecil @ Ogando – Scary matchup for Ogando but the results have been there all season.
Gee @ An. Sanchez
Stauffer @ Halladay
Lohse @ Morton – Lohse has been very shaky of late and Pirates are no longer a joke.
Lyles @ Garza – Not a good matchup for HR-prone Lyles.
Gallardo @ Bumgarner
Jimenez @ TBD (ARI)
Marquis @ Billingsley – Marquis 3 ER or less in four of his last five starts. Pitch if you’re willing to take some risk.
Beachy @ Willis
Haren @ Tomlin – Haren’s traditional second half fade already in the works…try trading him if you can get full value back.
Vargas @ F. Garcia
Davies @ Lester
Blackburn @ Holland – Holland torched last time out but deserves another start.
Below @ Buehrle
Hellickson @ Moscoso – I was feeling good about Moscoso…before last start.
Harang @ Lee – Harang has earned this one.
Dickey @ Leake – Dickey a bit risky so wouldn’t blame you for sitting him here.
McDonald @ T. Hudson – McDonald just too inconsistent.
Happ @ McClellan
Nicasio @ De La Rosa
