Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, May 26-28
Scherzer @ Pavano – Even though it was vs. PIT, Scherzer’s last start very encouraging.
Alvarez @ Lewis – Alvarez usually a solid option but he’s scuffling of late and this is a brutal matchup.
Paulino @ W. Chen – Classic blue-plate special.
Sabathia @ Colon – Even though he’s at home and the Yankee lineup is struggling, Bartolo’s been too inconsistent lately to trust.
Lowe @ Peavy – Lowe’s gone at least six innings while allowing no more than 2 ER in six straight starts.
Williams @ King Felix
Price @ Beckett
Richard @ J. Santana – I know he’s on the road, but coming off stellar outing @STL I’ll give Richard a shot here.
Strasburg @ Minor – Minor cannot be trusted right now, regardless of the opponent.
Bumgarner @ Buehrle
Maholm @ Correia
Guthrie @ Leake – Leake is looking better and Rockies can’t hit on the road.
Kendrick @ J. Garcia
Norris @ Billingsley – Billingsley’s in my doghouse until further notice.
Greinke @ Miley
Hochevar @ Hunter
Hellickson @ Buchholz – Clay cannot be trusted.
Jimenez @ Floyd – Not giving up on Floyd yet. Ubaldo’s high risk, medium reward.
Porcello @ Walters
Drabek @ Darvish
Kuroda @ Milone – If you can’t trust Kuroda here, why exactly do you still own him?
Wilson @ Noesi
Moyer @ Latos – Latos enjoying the month of May (2-0, 2.35 ERA)
Volquez @ Dickey
Cain @ Nolasco
Garza @ Bedard
Halladay @ Wainwright
Happ @ Capuano – Capuano’s a grad.
Wolf @ D. Hudson – I’m fine with using Hudson in his first start back.
Gonzalez @ Beachy
Fister @ Doubront – Doubront’s a little risky but I’ll chance it.
Godfrey @ Diamond – Nice matchup for Diamond.
Sale @ Moore – Stay the course with Moore.
Adcock @ Tomlin – Tomlin’s worth monitoring going forward though.
Matusz @ Hutchison
Millwood @ Harrison – Harrison 3 ER or less in three of his last four starts, and it’s the Mariners we’re talking about!
Hughes @ Weaver – Hughes got beat up by the Halos earlier this year. I just don’t see the upside here.
Hamels @ Niese
Lynn @ Hanson
Zimmermann @ Zambrano – Expect Big Z to bounce back from season-worst outing.
Arroyo @ McDonald – I have faith in Bronson in this favorable matchup.
Suppan @ Wood
Wandy @ Nicasio (Gm 1 of doubleheader) – Nicasio’s been too hit or miss this year.
Lyles @ White (Gm 2 of doubleheader)
Cahill @ Zito – No upside in pitching Zito.
Marcum @ Harang – Harang has been stellar at home (3.54 ERA, 1.08 WHIP).
