Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, April 26-28

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Santiago @ Nuno – Need to see more consistency from Santiago before I can trust him in tougher matchups.

Buchholz @ Morrow – Could be 2-1 or 10-9. I’ll pass.

An. Sanchez @ Hughes

Guthrie @ W. Chen

Ramos @ Danks – Danks very impressive so far against quality competition.

Straily @ Keuchel – Golden opportunity for Straily to right the ship.

Lewis @ King Felix – Lewis a worthy gamble here.

Cashner @ Roark – Roark a decent play in deeper leagues though.

Liriano @ Lyons

McAllister @ Lincecum – McAllister is hot. Lincecum always a roll of the dice but this matchup isn’t too scary.

T. Wood @ Estrada

Leake @ Hale – Both worth a look in deeper leagues but I’ll take the conservative route.

Slowey @ Mejia – Ideal matchup for Mejia.

Lee @ Arroyo

Nicasio @ Maholm

SUNDAY

Lester @ Dickey – Not liking this matchup for Dickey.

Shields @ M. Gonzalez

Price @ TBD (CWS)

Verlander @ Gibson

Milone @ McHugh – If you’re ever going to use Milone on the road, this is the time.

Harrison @ Maurer – Taking a wait and see approach with Harrison.

Richards @ Tanaka – Liking what I’m seeing from Richards.

Koehler @ Gee – Koehler due for stat correction, but I don’t think it will happen here.

Cueto @ Teheran

Kennedy @ Jordan

Hammel @ Peralta – Both performing very well.

Volquez @ Wainwright

Salazar @ Vogelsong – Sticking with Salazar.

De La Rosa @ Ryu

Burnett @ McCarthy

MONDAY

Gray @ Darvish

Odorizzi @ Rienzo

Masterson @ Skaggs – Skaggs pitching well enough to earn a shot here.

Samardzija @ Simon – Simon 2 ER or less in all four of his starts this year.

Gallardo @ Wacha

Morales @ Miley

T. Ross @ Bumgarner

Zach-

Would you drop Buchholz or Kluber for….

Lackey
Dickey
Straily?

Also since A. Sanchez went on the DL, I pick up Niese. Was that a good move or should I have picked up one of the pitchers above?

Thank you,
Suzanne

Yes, I have a little more faith in Lackey than Buchholz. Hang onto Kluber.

Zach

Oh, and I’d rank Niese above all of those pitchers, so yeah, I like that move.

with Harper and Cain on DL my OF is Marte/ Sizemore/ Pollock/ Gardner/ Eaton and C young….what you think of dropping Sizemore for Maybin

Only if you’re really desperate for speed. A healthy Grady is still a better all-around fantasy contributor than Maybin.
