Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, September 8-10
B. Chen @ Sale
Sabathia @ Saunders – I don’t trust Saundo in this matchup.
Romero @ Matsuzaka – Romero is DTM and Dice-K is borderline DTM.
McAllister @ De Vries – McAllister struggling of late but I like him here.
Darvish @ Price
Verlander @ Wilson – Wilson showing some improvement.
Anderson @ Iwakuma – Great matchup for the red-hot Iwakuma.
Buehrle @ Detwiler
Medlen @ Hefner – Hefner outstanding over his last two starts but keep in mind that he faced the Astros and Marlins.
Capuano @ Cain
Chatwood @ Hamels
Samardzija @ McDonald – McDonald has been so erratic in the second half that I’d be hesitant to pitch him even vs. the Cubs.
Norris @ Arroyo – Despite his home woes, if you own Arroyo you might as well start him here.
Fiers @ Westbrook – Not gambling on Fiers vs. best offense in NL.
Miley @ Volquez – Edinson still has good numbers at home, but he’s just too blowup prone.
F. Garcia @ Britton – Can’t trust Britton vs. Yanks, no matter how much their lineup is struggling.
Happ @ Buchholz
Harrison @ Shields
Guthrie @ Santiago
Masterson @ Vasquez – I’m officially retired from the Masterson guessing game.
An. Sanchez @ Greinke
Milone @ Vargas – Great matchup for both.
E. Gonzalez @ Cueto
Hanson @ Young
Nolasco @ Jackson – Nolasco on a roll but I can’t see him dominating Nats lineup twice in less than two weeks.
Pomeranz @ Cloyd
Rusin @ Locke
Marcum @ J. Kelly – I’ll give Marcum another chance. J. Kelly a decent play in deeper formats.
Kennedy @ C. Kelly – C. Kelly coming off rough outing at Coors but he’s now at home against an inconsistent ARI lineup.
Kershaw @ Zito – Not a fan of Zito.
Porcello @ Quintana
Kluber @ Deduno
Parker @ Haren
LeBlanc @ Kendrick – Tasty matchup for Kendrick.
Wandy @ Latos
G. Gonzalez @ Dickey – Nice!
Volstad @ Lyles
Minor @ Peralta – Need to see more from Peralta before I can trust him vs. non-terrible lineup.
Vogelsong @ White – Vogelsong fading badly and he did not fare too well at Coors last month.
J. Garcia @ Werner – For this one start, I’ll pitch Garcia.
