Pitch or Ditch for Friday, August 30
M. Gonzalez @ Sabathia – Gonzalez a toss-up but I’ll go for it. CC looked a lot better his last time out.
Big Erv @ Buehrle – Buehrle hit or miss. I’ll play it safe.
McAllister @ Porcello – I like McAllister but not here. Porcello’s numbers in three starts vs. Tribe this year are outstanding (2-0, 1.42 ERA, 0.95 WHIP).
Santiago @ Dempster – I like Santiago but not here.
Hendriks @ Darvish
T. Walker @ Peacock – Walker an elite prospect but I’m not a fan of pitching SPs in their big league debut.
Price @ Parker
Halladay @ Samardzija – Liked what I saw from Doc in his return.
Gee @ Zimmermann – Gee coming off worst outing in quite some time, but it was the Tigers.
Miller @ Liriano
J. Fernandez @ Teheran – Nice!
Weaver @ W. Peralta – Peralta has been a lot more effective on the road (3.94 ERA) than at home (5.17 ERA).
Arroyo @ Manship – Bronson has terrible career numbers at Coors.
Lincecum @ Delgado – Lincecum good for K’s but he got roughed up @ARI earlier this season (5 IP, 10 H, 5 ER). Delgado a worthy start in deeper leagues.
Stults @ Ryu – Tough task for Stults though.
