Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, September 1-3
W. Chen @ F. Garcia – I like Chen but I’m afraid to pitch him vs. Yanks.
Niemann @ Alvarez – Playing it safe and ditching Niemann in his first start back.
Big Erv @ King Felix – Going with Erv in favorable matchup.
Feldman @ R. Hernandez – Feldman too erratic lately.
Liriano @ Scherzer – Liriano’s on a roll.
Hendriks @ Hochevar – Rolling the dice on Hochevar.
Doubront @ Anderson – Doubront has been terrible of late.
Lincecum @ Germano
Lee @ Hudson
Lohse @ Zimmermann
Bailey @ Harrell – Can’t trust Homer vs. anybody right now. Harrell at home = Pitch
Burnett @ Estrada – Giving A.J. another chance.
Hefner @ Johnson – Hefner a decent gamble in deeper leagues though.
Volquez @ Chacin
Skaggs @ Beckett
Tillman @ Phelps
Holland @ McAllister – I like the matchup for Holland.
Price @ Romero
Diamond @ Mendoza – Diamond struggling lately but I’ll pitch him here.
Matsuzaka @ Milone – Not buying into Dice-K just yet.
Weaver @ Iwakuma – Iwakuma is on fire.
Sale @ Verlander
Young @ Buehrle
Westbrook @ Strasburg
Arroyo @ Norris – Norris’ home ERA is 2.09
McDonald @ Gallardo – Is McDonald back on track?
Cain @ Wood
C. Kelly @ Francis – Kelly very impressive in MLB debut but this is Coors we’re talking about.
Miley @ Capuano
TBD (PHI) @ Maholm
Hughes @ Shields
Kluber @ An. Sanchez
Saunders @ Happ – This could be 2-1 or 9-8…more likely the latter.
Darvish @ B. Chen
Wilson @ Blackley – Can’t bench Wilson here.
Buchholz @ Vargas – Vargas has been lights out at home all year.
Deduno @ Axelrod
Samardzija @ Detwiler – Gotta roll with both.
Chatwood @ Medlen
Hamels @ Cueto – Nice!
Fiers @ Nolasco – Even a CG SHO doesn’t change my opinion on Nolasco.
Keuchel @ Wandy
McHugh @ J. Kelly
Corbin @ Zito – Corbin worth a shot if you’re chasing K’s. Zito’s back in my doghouse.
Werner @ Blanton – For this one start, I’ll pitch Blanton.
