Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, May 19-21
Bailey @ Nova – Nova’s been too hit or miss of late. He needs to earn back my trust.
Batista @ Morrow
An. Sanchez @ Gomez
Burnett @ Smyly – Burnett’s last two starts too impressive to ignore. Smyly should do very well here.
Delgado @ Cobb
Kennedy @ B. Chen – Chen not a bad option vs. inconsistent ARI lineup.
Ross @ Vogelsong – Ross has been too hittable to trust, even vs. lowly Giants lineup.
Pavano @ Gallardo
Vargas @ Freidrich – Who cares if Freidrich is at home? These are the Mariners we’re talking about!
Hammel @ Detwiler
Lester @ Blanton – In mixed leagues, this is too risky of a matchup for Blanton.
Danks @ Dempster – I’m ditching Danks regardless of the opponent for the time being.
Holland @ Harrell
Haren @ Stauffer – Golden opportunity for Haren to get back on track. I’ll give Stauffer a mulligan for his last start.
Westbrook @ Kershaw – Westbrook deserves a shot here vs. Kemp-less Dodgers.
Cueto @ Sabathia
Johnson @ Lowe – Lowe’s pitched at least six innings while giving up 2 ER or less in each of his last five starts.
Correia @ Scherzer – Pirates lineup just what Scherzer needs to right the ship.
Gee @ Alvarez – Alvarez 7-for-8 in quality starts.
Hudson @ Price
Miley @ Teaford
W. Chen @ Strasburg – I’ll keep throwing Chen out there until he proves me wrong.
Beckett @ Lee
Lewis @ Lyles
Marquis @ Greinke
Peavy @ Maholm
Beavan @ Guthrie – Like Friedrich, I’ll roll the dice on Guthrie.
Big Erv @ Bass – This could be a fun matchup to watch.
Colon @ Lincecum
Lohse @ Billingsley – Very down on Billingsley right now. In tough matchup, I’m sitting this one out.
Buchholz @ Hunter – Buchholz is still in my doghouse.
Paulino @ Kuroda – Playing it safe and ditching Paulino. Kuroda’s been excellent at home.
Drabek @ Hellickson – Need to see more from Drabek. Keep an eye on him though.
Williams @ Milone – Williams a no-brainer. Milone 23 IP 1 ER in three home starts.
Darvish @ King Felix
J. Santana @ Bedard
Gonzalez @ Kendrick
Minor @ Leake – Minor’s been flat out awful of late.
Moyer @ Buehrle
Garza @ Norris
Bumgarner @ Wolf – Wolf very frustrating to own but vs. SF? Why not!
Richard @ J. Garcia
Capuano @ Corbin – Capuano working on six straight quality starts.
