Pitch or Ditch for Friday, September 7


Hughes @ W. Chen – Chen has been more stable than Hughes this year.

Alvarez @ Doubront

Holland @ Hellickson

Mendoza @ Liriano – do you feel lucky with Liriano? Not me.

Gomez @ Hendriks

Scherzer @ Big Erv – Scherzer is on a serious tear.

Griffin @ King Felix – minus the start in which he got hurt, Griffin is 8-for-8 in QS this year.

Turner @ Strasburg – enjoy the show while you can.

Francis @ Lee

Wood @ Burnett

Harrell @ Bailey – I don’t trust Bailey at home vs. AN. Y. ONE.

Maholm @ Niese – Maholm struggling of late.

Gallardo @ Lohse

Skaggs @ Cashner – Cashner’s K upside worth a little chase.

Beckett @ Lincecum – Lincecum 3.26 ERA since All-Star.


I’m not sure if one bad start for Maholm qualifies him as struggling of late…if you look back, it’s really not that bad besides the last blow up start when he gave up 7 runs in 2 innings. He has been taking losses, but that’s just because the braves can’t score anymore. The only runs he gives up are on homers. If you look at the last 10 games, he has been outstanding. I would be inclined to give him a pass on the last start and run him out there again


I tend to agree. And @NYM is a pretty nice matchup. I think it’s worth a shot.


I need strikeouts and wins for my fantasy team (me and the guy I’m playing are close in every category), but I’m not sure I should play Gallardo with his history against the Cards. Also can’t decide if I should play Hellickson agains the big bat Rangers.
