Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, September 3-5
Romero @ Colon – Romero has struggled vs. Yanks but he’s red-hot. Playing it safe and sitting Colon vs. strong TOR lineup.
Pineda @ McCarthy – McCarthy at home vs. terrible offense.
Floyd @ Penny – Floyd has a 3.86 ERA and 0.95 WHIP since the All-Star break…and that includes a 10 ER blowup!
Lewis @ Bedard – High risk minimal reward for both. I’m avoiding this one entirely.
Simon @ Davis – Davis sports a 5.96 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in four starts vs. BAL this year.
Huff @ Hochevar
Duensing @ Weaver
Ohlendorf @ Coleman
Bailey @ J. Garcia – Bailey not a bad option in deeper formats but STL lineup is solid.
Narveson @ Norris
Gee @ Milone – My confidence in Gee has been restored.
Eovaldi @ Minor
Hamels @ Nolasco – Watch Nolasco throw a shutout here!
White @ Luebke
Kennedy @ Lincecum
Cecil @ F. Garcia – Freddy’s numbers are sparkling but I could never bring myself to pitch him even in semi-scary matchups.
Harrison @ Lackey – 9-8 final score alert!
Guthrie @ Hellickson – Guthrie’s road ERA is more than a full run lower than his home mark. Pitch if you’re the gambling type.
Gomez @ Francis
Slowey @ Williams – Williams gave up 4 ER to SEA so I’m not all that enthusiastic about him.
Beavan @ Cahill – If you don’t feel comfortable starting Cahill here, go ahead and cut him.
Buehrle @ Scherzer – Scherzer is struggling a bit lately but CWS lineup is erratic.
Halladay @ An. Sanchez – Go ahead and sit Anibal here, especially if you’re running out of innings.
Kershaw @ TBD (ATL)
Pelfrey @ Livan – Both are too risky in mixed leagues.
Marcum @ Wandy
Arroyo @ Jackson
Morton @ Wells – Rolling the dice on Wells coming off two-hitter.
D. Hudson @ Vogelsong
Cook @ Latos
Reyes @ Sabathia
Fister @ Jimenez
Beckett @ Alvarez
Ogando @ Shields – I’ve officially lost patience with Ogando.
Humber @ Swarzak (Gm 1) – Humber hasn’t notched a quality start since July 2.
Stewart @ Diamond (Gm 2)
Paulino @ Harden – Nice matchup for Paulino.
Vasquez @ Haren
Kuroda @ Lannan
Sosa @ McDonald – Sosa an intriguing option in NL-only and deep mixed leagues but he’s not on 12-team mixed radar just yet.
Willis @ Garza
Miley @ Rogers
Bumgarner @ Stauffer – SF offense the perfect remedy for Stauffer’s recent inconsistency.
Wolf @ Westbrook – Wolf hitting a rough patch and matchup is far from favorable.
Lowe @ Lee
Capuano @ Vazquez
