Updated PoD Category Chart (9/7)
It’s been a little over three weeks since we last updated the Pitch or Ditch category chart, so here it is!
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 we’re basing this on a standard 12-team mixed league.
And here are the changes we’ve made since the last version, as we finally send Ricky Romero to Club DTM. Remember when he was an ace back in April? It’s been a long, long season for Ricky Ro.
Dempster PoD to grad
Holland PoD to grad
Medlen PoD to grad

Iwakuma indifferent to PoD

As always, feel free to comment. Disagree with some of our choices? We’d love to hear from you.
