Pitch or Ditch for Tuesday, September 17

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at St. Louis Cardinals


Pettitte @ Dickey

Maurer @ An. Sanchez

Feldman @ Dempster – don’t trust either in this matchup

Tepesch @ Hellickson

Pelfrey @ Quintana

Kluber @ Ventura

Leake @ Lyles

Richards @ Griffin

Minor @ Haren (Gm 1)

F. Garcia @ Roark (Gm 2) – Roark hasn’t allowed a HR yet; Braves lead NL in homers… who do ya got??

Flynn @ Halladay

Stults @ Locke

Petit @ Wheeler

Samardzija @ Estrada – Shark is running on fumes, I’ll pass

Kelly @ Nicasio – Kelly has a 2.28 ERA in 13 starts, good enough for me

Greinke @ Corbin – tough call on Corbin, who has faded somewhat and has a tough matchup


Roark or Kluber the rest of the way? Have 4 adds left on thesecond day of the semifinals. 6×6 with W, L, era, whip, holds, and saves.

Let’s take a look at the remaining schedule. Here are their projected starts:

Kluber: @KC, vs. HOU, @MIN

Roark: vs. ATL, vs. MIA, @ARI

Kluber’s matchups are much more favorable. Plus, Roark has faced the Marlins and Mets in his two starts this year. Let’s see how he does against tougher competition.


thanks Zach. unfortunately my opponent picked up kluber and the nationals doubleheader already started. double whammy. it looks like my best course of action will be to start less players and go after era/whip/saves and holds while winning the majority of offensive categories. seeing as how my opponent now has 7 two start pitchers. thank you very much for the advice and guidance all season. I can’t express how much I like the website, or how useful it has been to me. best.
