Pitch or Ditch for Tuesday, July 9
Shields @ Sabathia
Straily @ Cole – first test for Cole against a top offense, I’ll play it safe
Perez @ Britton – same for Britton as Cole… conservatism vs. top offenses
Johnson @ Jimenez – toss-up on Ubaldo but trust is in short supply
Jordan @ Hamels
Quintana @ Verlander – Quintana has upside, but too risky vs. Tigers
Teheran @ Alvarez
Gibson @ Archer – Gibson a toss-up but I’ll put him with Cole and Britton
Blanton @ Wood – Blanton is on a tear and Wood is an All-Star!
Cingrani @ W. Peralta – I would’ve liked Peralta much better vs. the Mets!
Norris @ Wainwright
Nolasco @ Kennedy
Webster @ Iwakuma
Chacin @ Stults – Chacin 2.05 ERA in 7 road starts
Gee @ Zito – Zito 1.98 ERA in 10 home starts
