Updated PoD Category Chart (8/1)
What better way to kick off the post-trade deadline phase of the season than to update our Pitch or Ditch chart.
A lot more demotions than promotions this time around as there has been a whole lot of lousy pitching of late. Hey, we even sent two guys to Club DTM!
Anyway, here are the changes we’ve made since the last version:
Sheets PoD to grad
McAllister PoD to grad
Beckett ace to grad
Shields ace to grad
Masterson grad to PoD
Worley grad to PoD
Norris grad to PoD
Jimenez PoD to DTM
Nolasco PoD to DTM
And once again, a reminder as to how the chart works:
We’ve divided all of the current starting rotation pitchers in the Majors into five groups: Aces, Grads (pitchers who should not be dropped and can be started almost all the time), 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 depending on performance. We’ll be updating the chart every other week. Also, we are basing this on a standard 12-team mixed league.
All comments are welcome!
