Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, April 28-30
Haren @ Gomez
B. Chen @ Marquis – I’m very high on Chen for this matchup.
Smyly @ F. Garcia – Garcia very close to DTM status.
Millwood @ Morrow – K’s have been lacking for Morrow so far but I’m not concerned just yet.
Ross @ W. Chen – Gotta roll with “the other Chen” vs. lackluster lineup. Ross also a decent play here.
Lester @ Peavy
Niemann @ Lewis – Niemann has been solid thus far but this is a dangerous one.
Estrada @ Lohse
Harrell @ Cueto
Wells @ Blanton – After struggling @SF and then @SD, Blanton has lost my trust.
Kennedy @ An. Sanchez
Bedard @ Delgado – Challenging matchup for Bedard but he’s the kind of guy you pitch vs. everyone, that is until he gets injured.
Gee @ Guthrie – This could get ugly for both.
Bass @ Lincecum – Need to keep trotting Lincecum out there. Bass worth a shot in deep leagues.
Strasburg @ Billingsley – I’ll give Billingsley a mulligan for his last outing.
Big Erv @ Lowe – Erv deserves one more chance before I’d think about benching or cutting him.
Scherzer @ Sabathia – Much like Erv, Scherzer very risky, but when he’s on he can dominate any lineup. I’d totally understand if you choose to bench him though.
Vargas @ Alvarez – Outstanding matchup for Alvarez.
Colon @ Hunter
Beckett @ Floyd – Red Sox lineup is hot so I’d lean towards sitting Floyd. Not much upside here.
J. Sanchez @ Blackburn
Price @ Holland
Miley @ Johnson – Miley impressive in first start but I need to see more.
Norris @ Latos – Norris a gamble but he’s still racking up the whiffs.
Garza @ Kendrick
Correia @ T. Hudson – Correia’s hot but he’s due for a blowup soon. Nice way for Hudson to open his 2012.
Greinke @ J. Garcia
J. Santana @ Moyer
Richard @ Bumgarner – Richard almost always a ditch on road but this is an exception.
Gonzalez @ Capuano – Capuano has been excellent at home.
Hammel @ Kuroda – Disaster alert for Hammel.
Hochevar @ Wilk – I’ll play it safe and sit Hochevar for this one.
Darvish @ Drabek – Drabek way too inconsistent to trust vs. upper-echelon offenses.
Milone @ Buchholz – Clay is very close to DTM.
King Felix @ Hellickson
Hendriks @ Wilson
Collmenter @ Buehrle
Samardzija @ Worley – Samardzija turning back into a pumpkin!
McDonald @ Minor – Not a good time to test out McDonald.
Dickey @ Happ – Dickey coming off a much needed bounce back performance.
Harang @ Nicasio – Nicasio a worthy play in deeper mixed leagues.
Wolf @ Wieland – Great matchup for Wolf.
