Hey everyone,

It’s been awhile since our last Pitch or Ditch chart update, but not a whole lot has changed. Here’s the PDF.

POD Chart 6-13-13

And here are the changes we’ve made since the last version from mid-May.


Scherzer grad to ace

Teheran PoD to grad

Lyles indifferent to PoD

Hefner indifferent to PoD

Bedard DTM to PoD


Dickey ace to grad

Wilson grad to PoD

Haren grad to PoD

Kennedy grad to PoD

Agree? Disagree? We’d love to hear from you!



You giving up on Kennedy? Surprised Gallardo isn’t demoted. I agree with Wilson , he’s so stressful to own. At one point I had Gallardo n Wilson , that’ll make you pull your hair out. Traded em both .

Not giving up on Kennedy but to me, he’s no longer a guy who you absolutely need to keep on your roster. Personally, I’m not dropping him yet. But if you want to cut ties with him in a 12-team mixed, it’s perfectly understandable.


Squeeze Play (10T 15×15 daily H2H dynasty)- with Strasburg coming off DL for Sunday who would you drop; Cingrani, Wheeler, Wacha, Gerrit Cole? Cingrani is obvious, but with his upside can the Reds afford to keep him in AAA for any length of time? That’s the rub. Thanks guys – R.K.

I think I’d drop Wacha but it’s a very tough call.

Wacha just sent back down too.

I think Dickey is done. I know he claims back issues but I really think he can’t be trusted in the AL East.

Agreed, had him last season dumped after the balky back reveal. Be it back or AL East, I think he needs to show consistency now.

Agreed! I avoided Dickey in all leagues this year, and I’m certainly glad I did. Knuckleball pitchers are just so risky to invest in. If they lose the feel for the pitch, they might as well be throwing batting practice.



What about Cahill? He’s been a disaster for the last month. Demote him.

We definitely thought about it. He’s borderline.


What’s keeping Iwakuma from Ace status? Wins, or uncertainty of future performance?


Mostly the latter, and we have a very high bar when it comes to anointing someone an ace. The body of work needs to be a bit more lengthy.


Hey guys,

Think Porcello can make a push to be a grad soon? I mean take out his blowup against the Angels and his ERA is at 3.29 (hopefully my math is correct) and right now his FIP is roughly around that number. Now I know his K rate is much much higher than previous years, but do you think he could keep this up the rest of the year? I mean he’s only 24 and finally using more of the curve that had him so highly touted coming into the bigs. Thanks again guys.
