Pitch or Ditch for Wednesday, October 3 (The Finale)
Dempster @ Griffin – Griffin a category-based decision. Is the ERA/WHIP risk worth it?
Weaver @ Beavan – Beavan at home not a bad gamble if chasing counting stats.
Matsuzaka @ Kuroda
Floyd @ Huff – I really had high hopes for Floyd this year. Oh well.
Diamond @ Morrow – Too tough of a matchup for the inconsistent Diamond.
Tillman @ Hellickson – Tillman is 2-0 with a 1.57 ERA through four September starts.
Marte @ Mendoza
Sheets @ Burnett – Nice matchup for Sheets in his final MLB start.
Lee @ Jackson
E. Gonzalez @ Wood – Wood a decent NL-only option.
Hefner @ Buehrle – Fun fact: Hefner’s last two starts are mirror images of each other. 7 IP, 0 ER and 0 IP, 7 ER
Francis @ Kennedy
Vogelsong @ Kershaw
Werner @ Stinson
Bailey @ Miller – Tough road matchup for Homer, but how can you ditch a guy who’s coming off a no-no? Taking the conservative route on Miller. Reds still have something to play for.
