Pitch or Ditch for Friday, April 13
Big Erv @ Kuroda
Price @ Beckett – not panicking about Beckett
Scherzer @ Peavy – not panicking about Max
Lowe @ Hochevar
Hunter @ Morrow
Harrison @ Swarzak – the Twins could be this year’s team to pick on
Colon @ King Felix
Samardzija @ Wainwright – tough matchup for The Shark but let’s see if he’s legit
McDonald @ Cain
Arroyo @ Zimmermann
Dickey @ Lee
Harrell @ Nolasco
Wolf @ Jurrjens – either/or/both/neither
D. Hudson @ Nicasio – not trusting Nicaso in Coors vs. a good offense, yet
Richard @ Harang
***ZACH SAYS “I’d pass on Samardzija. Don’t trust him yet and the Cardinals aren’t exactly the team you want to test to see if he’s legit. I’ll also roll the dice on Harangatang at home vs. the Padres, aka my favorite team to pick on! Agree on rest.”
-The one time a year I’m not the biggest BIG ERV fan ever but pitch.
-Peavy wasn’t awful in Texas first start but another tough opponent in a hitters’ park. I’m not going to pick him up but if he’s on my team already I’d start him.
-Hunter coming off a good one but that was Minny. If he survives in Toronto maybe we start thinking about him. Ditch.
-Cory feeling it on TD Jesus, me not so much.
-James McDonald my blue plate special.
-No problem with trotting out Clayton Richard. It’s basically a home game. Harang wasn’t good last time out so he’s a pitch if you dare.
