Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, September 15-17
Buchholz @ Villanueva – Villanueva coming off solid performance at Fenway but he’s been very inconsistent of late.
Quintana @ Deduno – Quintana got roughed up by the Twins last week but I still like the matchup.
An. Sanchez @ Masterson – Masterson is giving his owners a total headache this year.
Shields @ Nova – Playing it safe on Nova in his first start back.
Greinke @ Guthrie
Vargas @ Feldman – SEA lineup does well on the road.
Britton @ Parker – Britton was awful vs. the Yankees on Sunday but I do like this matchup.
Locke @ Berken
Jackson @ Hanson
Kendrick @ Keuchel – Kendrick is on a roll.
Mejia @ Marcum – Losing patience with Marcum but I’ll give him one more chance vs. mediocre at best lineup.
Cueto @ Buehrle
Zito @ Miley – Zito cannot be trusted here.
Pomeranz @ C. Kelly – COL lineup woeful on the road.
J. Garcia @ Blanton – Time to take a break from Garcia, whose road struggles continue.
Moore @ Kuroda
Lester @ Morrow – I’m expecting a bounce back performance from Morrow.
Haren @ Smith
Peavy @ Diamond – Diamond hasn’t posted a quality start in more than three weeks.
Porcello @ Jimenez – Porcello not a bad choice in deeper formats though.
Beavan @ Harrison
TBD (BAL) @ Straily
Latos @ Nolasco – Nolasco is red-hot but he’s due for a blowup and the Reds’ lineup is dangerous.
Halladay @ Lyles
Young @ Peralta – Could be 10-9 or 2-1. This is a category-based decision.
Wandy @ Volstad
White @ Werner – Werner’s pitching well and it’s fun to pick on the Rockies when they’re on the road!
Wainwright @ Kershaw
Vogelsong @ Corbin – Tough matchup for the struggling Vogelsong. I think I’d sit this one out. Corbin has faded in September (6.10 ERA).
G. Gonzalez @ Minor
Fister @ Floyd – Floyd way too unpredictable.
Cook @ Cobb – Cobb has been excellent at home this year.
M. Gonzalez @ Ramirez – Outstanding matchup for Gonzalez.
Lee @ Dickey – This game could be over in 45 minutes!
Correia @ Wood – Wood a quality NL-only play.
Chacin @ Bumgarner
