CORY’S PICKS

An. Sanchez @ Kluber – Anibal hasn’t been great, but nice matchup

Price @ Sabathia

Matsuzaka @ Laffey

Wilson @ B. Chen

Liriano @ De Vries – can’t trust Liriano here unless truly desperate for K’s

McDonald @ RusinMcDonald hit and miss but have to love the matchup

Detwiler @ Medlen

Hamels @ E. Gonzalez

Niese @ Fiers

Niese @ Fiers so who do you prefer?

NewBD,

I’ll say Niese. Fiers offers the higher K upside but Niese has been the more consistent pitcher this year. Fiers is a bit too blowup prone for my liking.

Yup, just updated it. News of this broke last night, and of course Norris was the picture I chose!

Hey well its the 2nd week of the playoffs and the top 2 of 4 teams with the most categories won go on to the series…..Ive been starting Plouffe over A Cabrera at SS and am thinking of doing so even when he is healthy? Also been sitting Reddick for Cain and Aoki….you think its advisable to sit those 2 also what do you think of Eaton, is he a better option than Aoki or Cain

Alan,

By all means ride the hot bat but it’s not like Plouffe has been great either. I’m just not a fan of his…too streaky and I’m not buying into the power surge this year. To me, Asdrubal is the safer play when healthy. I’d stick with Cain and Aoki for the time being as they’re the hot bats right now. Reddick is ice cold. He’s a very streaky hitter but who knows when he’ll wake up.

Zach

Had to pickup a SP as my opponent is streaming like crazy. Best available option was Saunders. Has good career number vs OAK. Hope he can give me a good quality and be in position for a W

Not a bad gamble, Spencer. Just hope that he doesn’t give you one of those 3 IP, 7 ER performances!

Zach
