Pitch or Ditch for Tuesday, August 30
First, I’d like to offer my condolences to any of you who lost your playoff matchup because you owned too many players on the teams that got their games rained out this past weekend. Stats from the rescheduled games should really be added to this week’s total, but unfortunately it doesn’t work that way. And I know, it’s very unfair. Just another reason why I’m not a big fan of head-to-head leagues.
Well, enough griping. Let’s get to Pitch or Ditch.
Francis @ Fister
Cahill @ TBD (CLE) – Cahill extremely inconsistent of late but I’ll throw him out there vs. below average Indians’ lineup.
Cecil @ Guthrie – I expect Cecil to bounce back.
Sabathia @ Lackey – Don’t be fooled by Lackey’s 12 wins. He’s had a miserable season.
Hellickson @ Feldman
Swarzak @ Stewart – Stewart an intriguing AL-only play but too risky for mixed leagues.
Williams @ Vasquez
Vazquez @ Pelfrey – Vazquez: 3.51 ERA 1.07 WHIP and more than a strikeout per inning since All-Star break.
Halladay @ Arroyo – Bronson’s on a nice roll but no way am I pitching him here.
Livan @ Jurrjens
Morton @ Sosa
Jackson @ Marcum – I don’t trust Edwin vs. dangerous Brewers’ lineup.
Cook @ Miley
Stauffer @ Kuroda
Garza @ Vogelsong
