Updated PoD Category Chart (5/15)
Alright, the time has finally arrived for an updated Pitch or Ditch category chart! Click on the link below to download the PDF
A quick 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.
Here are the changes we’ve made to the chart since the mid-April version:
Harvey grad to ace
Bailey PoD to grad
Jimenez DTM to PoD
Kazmir indifferent to PoD
Grimm indifferent to PoD
Feldman indifferent to PoD
Slowey indifferent to PoD
Vogelsong grad to PoD
Jackson grad to PoD
Niese grad to PoD
Beckett grad to PoD
Worley PoD to indifferent
Sanabia PoD to indifferent
By the way, Ryan Vogelsong has completely ruined the ERA/WHIP of two of my teams (fortunately, I had the sense to bench him Wednesday night). Personally, he’s DTM, but to be nice, we’ve listed him as PoD. He’s on a short leash though.
Feel free to post your questions and/or comments.
