Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, August 6-8
Sabathia @ Lackey – not risking Lackey vs. the Yankees
Morrow @ Tillman
Peavy @ Pavano
Verlander @ Duffy
McCarthy @ Cobb – don’t like McCarthy on the road
Carmona @ Wilson
Beavan @ Chatwood – don’t trust Beavan on the road, yet
Cueto @ Zambrano
Hamels @ Cain
Narveson @ Myers – Brewers not as scary on the road
Luebke @ Maholm – hang with ‘em
Hanson @ Niese
Carpenter @ Nolasco
Ely @ Saunders – red-hot Saundo worth a gamble in deep/unmixed leagues
Livan @ Chacin – Chacin not out of the woods yet
***SIANO SAYS “Agreed. Narveson probably a decent play but when I say pitch he stinks and ditch he rocks so I’m keeping somewhat mum.”
Romero @ Simon – Simon handled Jays on July 27…don’t count on a repeat.
Cahill @ Price – I don’t trust Cahill vs. any team right now.
Danks @ Duensing – Danks coming off so-so outing vs. Yanks but I like this matchup. Duensing too inconsistent.
Scherzer @ Chen – Scherzer 2 ER or less in each of his last five starts.
King Felix @ Big Erv – Battle of the nicknames!
Tomlin @ Lewis
F. Garcia @ Beckett – BoSox have roughed up Garcia pretty good this year.
Jurrjens @ Lee
J. Garcia @ Vazquez – I’m tempted to take a chance on Javy here but Cards lineup is pretty solid.
Latos @ Correia – If you’re not willing to start Correia here, why do you own him?
Greinke @ Norris
Arroyo @ Garza – Arroyo coming off strong outing…but it was vs. Astros.
Lannan @ Cook
Oswalt @ Lincecum – Nice matchup for Oswalt in his return from DL.
Kershaw @ Kennedy
Floyd @ Guthrie – Taking a chance on Guthrie vs. erratic White Sox lineup.
Wakefield @ Baker – Baker too risky here, even at home.
Hochevar @ Hellickson (he might not make this start)
Furbush @ Harrison – We love to pick on those M’s!
Lowe @ Hand – Lowe can’t be trusted right now.
Hammel @ Bailey – Bailey a decent gamble in deeper leagues.
Stauffer @ Pelfrey
Wang @ TBD (CHC)
Wandy @ D. Hudson – Wandy @ARI a little scary though.
Halladay @ Kuroda
Morton @ Vogelsong
