Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, September 24-26
Diamond @ Huff (Gm 1)
Liriano @ Talbot (Gm 2) – Liriano was awful in August and has yet to make a start in September…ditch!
Wakefield @ Burnett – This has slugfest written all over it.
King Felix @ Ogando – Ogando pitching well of late, but more importantly it’s the Mariners.
Guthrie @ Verlander
Teaford @ Danks – Danks a somewhat risky start but he’s been solid at home.
Romero @ Niemann
Moscoso @ Williams – Check out Moscoso’s home/road splits and you’ll see why I’m ditching.
Beachy @ Wang
Lopez @ Lohse – Not a Lohse fan, but aside from K’s he’s been great this year.
Kendrick @ Gee – Kendrick since All-Star break: 4-2 2.42 ERA 1.08 WHIP
TBD (CIN) @ Lincoln
Hammel @ Happ
Sanabia @ Greinke
Surkamp @ Kennedy
Billingsley @ Harang – As much as I’m fed up with Billingsley’s inconsistency, this matchup is too good to pass up.
VandenHurk @ Penny
Lackey @ Nova – Nova’s earned it. Lackey is DTM.
Hendriks @ Carmona – Carmona’s been awful this month (7.66 ERA 1.95 WHIP .343 BAA

Mendoza @ Floyd – Floyd hasn’t recorded a QS in almost a month.
Furbush @ Holland
Harden @ Pineiro – Harden has offered us little reason for optimism lately.
Halladay @ Pelfrey

Wells @ Jackson
Kershaw @ Luebke
Lincecum @ Collmenter
Bedard @ Hunter – Bedard can’t be trusted right now.

Lee @ Delgado
Milone @ An. Sanchez
J. Garcia @ Wandy
Karstens @ Marcum
