2012 Inaugural Pitch or Ditch Category Chart
For those of you who missed the announcement on Twitter: The MLB.com Fantasy 411 will no longer appear on MLB Network. It will still be available daily on MLB.com and ITunes and when posted the podcast links will always be tweeted out. We enjoyed our time on MLB Network but have decided to return to our roots that allow us more time to break down baseball, answer your questions and have on the great guests that are out there in the fantasy kingdom.
Below are the three links to find our podcast. Save it in a safe place because starting April 9th you will get a new show each weekday…….Mike

***Also note that Cory has updated his composite projections (see link below) to reflect every playing time projection, role change and injury update tweak that he could find. There have been very very minor changes to some rate stats to reflect changing roles (closer changes, lineup order, etc.) but otherwise these numbers are VERY much in line with the rate stats from the original composite projections.
It’s never too early for our world renowned Fantasy 411 Pitch or Ditch chart! For those of you new to the 411, here’s how it works.
We’ve divided all of the current starting rotation pitchers in the Majors into five groups: Aces, Grads (pitchers who you should be starting regardless of the matchup), Pitch or Ditch (guys who you should be picking up to start in favorable matchups but do not deserve a regular roster spot), DTMs (guys who we are fed up with and would not start under any circumstances for the time being) and Indifferents (guys who we don’t feel any ill-will towards but who just aren’t that good). Keep in mind that these classifications are very much subject to change throughout the season based on performance and expect frequent updates to the chart.
