Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, April 5-7

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Minnesota Twins

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Gibson @ Carrasco – I’m a big fan of Carrasco this year.

Pineda @ Dickey – I’m not a big fan of Dickey this year.

Norris @ Porcello – Porcello could become a POD factor soon though.

Danks @ B. Chen

King Felix @ Milone – Not enough upside with Milone.

W. Peralta @ Buchholz – Peralta deserves attention but this matchup is too tough.

Skaggs @ Keuchel – Skaggs not a bad gamble here but let’s see him make one start first.

Martinez @ Price

Cueto @ Gee

Lee @ Samardzija

Bumgarner @ Maholm

Teheran @ Strasburg

Kelly @ Liriano – Kelly an intriguing NL-only play.

Cashner @ Fernandez

McCarthy @ De La Rosa

SUNDAY

Nolasco @ Masterson – Nolasco is YPNM.

Sabathia @ Hutchison – CC looking to bounce back.

Tillman @ Verlander

Gallardo @ Lester – I liked what I saw from Gallardo on Monday.

Darvish @ Cobb

Sale @ Shields

Weaver @ Feldman – I don’t trust Feldman. Period.

E. Ramirez @ Gray – Nice matchup for Erasmo.

Simon @ Niese – Let’s see how Niese does here.

Kennedy @ Eovaldi – Promising matchup for both.

Al. Wood @ Jordan – Jordan could prove start-worthy before long.

Wainwright @ Volquez

Burnett @ Villanueva

Miley @ Anderson – Playing it safe on both.

Cain @ Greinke

MONDAY

Jimenez @ Kuroda

Wilson @ Cosart – C.J. should get back on track here.

Kazmir @ Correia – Kazmir dominant in season debut.

Scheppers @ Lackey – Taking a wait and see approach with Scheppers. Throwing Lackey out there despite challenging matchup.

T. Ross @ Kluber – Ross’ strikeout upside too tempting to ignore. Giving Kluber another shot versus lower tier offense.

Moore @ Vargas – Vargas worth monitoring though.

Lohse @ Kendrick

Cingrani @ Wacha – Wednesday’s meeting lived up to the hype. Will this one follow?

Paulino @ Lyles – I like Paulino but this matchup is too risky.

What the hell is YPNM???

It’s a longtime 411 acronym…your problem not mine.

Zach

Ah.. Gotcha.. Thx!

Do you believe Charlie Blackmon will keep staying hot or is this just a one week thing, do you think he is a good add in an NL only 9 team league with FAAB every Sunday my Outfield situation is pretty good so I’m looking for your feedback my OF’s are Michael Morse, McCutchen, Denard Span, Junior Lake, Domonic Brown and my DH is Nate Schierholtz.

Robby,

I wouldn’t exactly break the bank to add him. I still prefer all of your current OFs.

Zach

i have wei yen chen. losing trust in him. wait him out? or p/u paulino, doubront,morrow or eric johnson?? my 12 team league is thin in pitching

Dan,

Chen is a Pitch or Ditch guy who you should feel comfortable dropping if he’s facing a tough matchup and you could use the roster spot. I’d just play the matchups with that whole group.

Zach
