Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, September 7-9
Santiago @ W. Chen – Only pitch Santiago if you’re chasing K’s. Chen is a ditch until further notice.
Lackey @ Huff
Oberholtzer @ Straily – Straily has been erratic of late but the matchup is tasty.
Niese @ Kluber – Even though it’s Kluber’s first start back, this matchup is hard to resist.
Verlander @ Duffy
Happ @ Correia
Holland @ Richards
Archer @ Paxton
Greinke @ Latos
Hellweg @ Arrieta
A. Wood @ Kendrick – Expecting Wood to right the ship.
Roark @ Eovaldi – Eovaldi back in my good graces.
Locke @ Wainwright – Scary matchup for struggling Locke.
Chatwood @ Ross – Ross a solid source of K’s and he’s pitched especially well at home. Chatwood worth monitoring for road starts but he was rather shaky in return from DL.
McCarthy @ Cain – McCarthy a borderline call but I still don’t trust him.
Lester @ Kuroda
Matsuzaka @ Salazar – Salazar hasn’t been quite as sharp lately but it’s the Mets.
Rienzo @ Norris – Norris a so-so option but the matchup is favorable.
Fister @ B. Chen
Rogers @ Albers – Albers turning back into a pumpkin.
TBD (TEX) @ Vargas
Clemens @ Colon
Moore @ E. Ramirez – Ramirez 3 ER or less in each of his last four starts. Challenging matchup though.
Strasburg @ Turner – Turner running out of gas and lack of K’s limits his upside.
Maholm @ Hamels
Morton @ Wacha – Took a chance on Morton for the two-start week but in a daily league, I’ll sit him here.
Gallardo @ T. Wood – Gallardo is on a nice run.
Miley @ Bumgarner – As a Miley owner in two leagues, I’m hoping he gets back on track in this start. And I think he will.
Bettis @ Kennedy – Could Kennedy finally be turning things around?
Kershaw @ Bailey
Sabathia @ Tillman
Big Erv @ Jimenez – Ubaldo pitching well lately.
Weaver @ P. Hernandez
Cole @ Darvish
Scherzer @ Sale
Cosart @ Walker – Coming off his first rough outing of the season, Cosart deserves a mulligan. Sticking with Walker in favorable matchup.
T. Wood @ Arroyo – Bronson just keeps on getting it done.
G. Gonzalez @ Torres – Torres a PoD special in deeper leagues.
Medlen @ Alvarez
Delgado @ Nolasco – Tough test for Delgado but he’s been consistently effective for awhile now.
Chacin @ Lincecum
