Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, August 24-26

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Baltimore Orioles

CORY’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Milone @ Tillman

Hendriks @ Kazmir – Kazmir hit and miss, but overall a good percentage play

Darvish @ Santiago – I like Santiago for the K potential even in tough matchups

Zimmermann @ W. Davis – if Zimmermann can’t handle the Royals, THEN we’ll ditch

TBD (TOR) @ Peacock – Peacock has good K potential and Toronto is banged up

Sabathia @ Price

Vargas @ E. Ramirez

Lester @ Ryu

Scherzer @ Harvey

Delgado @ Martin – Delgado is tempting vs. banged-up Phillies

W. Peralta @ Arroyo – I’d love to use Peralta here but Reds shelled him last time

Manship @ Fernandez

Teheran @ Miller

Samardzija @ Stults – one more shot on Stults at home vs. a weak opponent

Liriano @ Lincecum

                                                                                                                                                SUNDAY

Pelfrey @ McAllister – McAllister worth a look in deep and/or unmixed leagues

Parker @ M. Gonzalez

Nova @ Cobb

Garza @ Danks – Danks a riskier pick but he’s pitched better than his ERA shows

Haren @ Big Erv – Haren looks reborn of late (again)

Buehrle @ Keuchel

Weaver @ Harang

Estrada @ Cingrani – Estrada sharp since coming off the DL but too HR-prone for this matchup

Porcello @ Gee

De La Rosa @ Turner – Turner is fading, should be shut down soon

Corbin @ Cloyd

Minor @ Lynn

Burnett @ Vogelsong

Rusin @ Cashner

Peavy @ Capuano

                                                                                                                                               MONDAY

Hellickson @ Guthrie

Hughes @ Dickey

Griffin @ An. Sanchez

Oberholtzer @ Rienzo

Blackley @ Saunders

Leake @ Lyons

Lee @ Wheeler

Zito @ Nicasio

Ross @ McCarthy – tough call on both… red-hot Ross in tough matchup vs. struggling McCarthy in favorable matchup… play it safe on both

Arrieta @ Greinke

Sticking with CC eh? Disappointment, as is Beachy likely being shut down

well Ive won my division so going to just sit back the last week and probably make no moves,,,,my only consideration is if I need to upgrade my 6th SP who is Gray at this time….Peavy and Lester are both available so wonder if either would be a better choice….gray I feel just had a bad outing but should bounce back?

Lester is hot and I think he’s definitely worth a pickup. But being that you’re off this week anyway, waiting until the end of the week to get a better idea as to what the matchups will be for next week isn’t a bad idea.

Hey Zach,
Adam LaRoche or Justin Morneau for ROS in a 12t, h2h, mixed league?
Thanks.

Rich D.

Morneau is simply having the better season and is less of an AVG liability, so I’d lean towards him.
