Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, August 13-15
Weaver @ Romero
Hellickson @ Hughes – Hughes likely pitching for his rotation spot.
Lewis @ Cahill – Cahill so unpredictable…I’ll sit him for this tough matchup.
Scherzer @ Guthrie
Duensing @ Tomlin – Not a Tomlin fan but great matchup.
Hochevar @ Peavy
Beckett @ King Felix – Nice!
Correia @ Estrada – Could get ugly for Correia.
Lannan @ Oswalt
Wells @ Lowe – I keep wanting to pitch Lowe but he can’t seem to put together a string of strong starts.
Stauffer @ Bailey – Padres’ lineup showing some life lately so Bailey’s risky, but if you’re into taking chances he’s not a bad gamble.
Lincecum @ FLA (TBD)
Hammel @ J. Garcia – Hammel has a 9.00 ERA in five starts since the All-Star break.
Pelfrey @ D. Hudson – I just don’t see the upside in pitching Pelfrey here.
Wandy @ Kershaw
Slowey @ Huff
Shields @ F. Garcia – I keep doubting Garcia and he keeps notching quality starts.
Haren @ Cecil – Cecil’s last four starts: 29 IP 7 ER 22 K
Fister @ Reyes
Francis @ Danks – Danks mediocre over last two starts but he should get back on track here.
Harrison @ Harden – Tough opponent for Harden but at least he’s at home.
Wakefield @ Furbush
LeBlanc @ Willis – Call me crazy…I’m pitching the D-Train!
Vogelsong @ Volstad
Garza @ Beachy
Wang @ Halladay
Morton @ Marcum
Lyles @ Kuroda
Capuano @ Marquis – Capuano too shaky of late to trust in tough matchup.
Rogers @ Jackson – I don’t trust Rogers yet.
Liriano @ Porcello – Porcello coming off disaster outing but I haven’t lost faith.
Burnett @ Paulino – I don’t trust Burnett, and I don’t think I ever will.
Hunter @ Gonzalez – Hunter not a bad gamble in deeper leagues but I’ll be conservative here.
Ogando @ Richards – I’m losing patience with Ogando though.
Alvarez @ Pineda
Bumgarner @ T. Hudson
Westbrook @ McDonald – Risk with McDonald outweighs the reward.
Lopez @ Sosa
Lilly @ Wolf – Lilly looks to be back on track.
Hensley @ Millwood
Dickey @ Harang
