Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, May 17-19

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Toronto Blue Jays

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Volquez @ Phelps

Noesi @ Cosart

Kazmir @ Tomlin

Porcello @ Lackey – Porcello very effective thus far but his career numbers vs. BOS are brutal.

Norris @ Duffy – Norris versus sub-par KC lineup worth considering in deeper formats. Keep an eye on Duffy too.

Elias @ Deduno – Elias should get back on track here.

Buehrle @ Ross – This could very well be the inevitable Buehrle blowup.

Ramos @ Wilson

Harang @ Miller – Harang regression way overdue but Cards offense has been erratic.

Garza @ Jackson – E-Jax still cannot be trusted despite not so terrible start.

Colon @ G. Gonzalez – Colon on the road this year: 7.67 ERA, 1.67 WHIP.

Bailey @ Hamels – Homer turning things around.

Erlin @ Lyles

Kershaw @ Collmenter

Koehler @ Lincecum – This could be 2-1 or 10-9. No thanks.

SUNDAY

Chavez @ Masterson – Still not giving up on Masterson despite tough matchup.

Morton @ Kuroda (Gm 1) – Morton not a bad gamble in deeper leagues though.

Cole @ Nuno (Gm 2)

Jimenez @ Shields – Not a bad spot to try out Ubaldo, but he’s so unpredictable.

King Felix @ Nolasco

Danks @ Peacock – Gotta go with Danks here.

Dickey @ Martinez – Dickey @TEX is too scary for my liking.

Price @ Shoemaker

An. Sanchez @ Peavy – Schedule not exactly kind to Anibal for his return.

Wheeler @ Zimmermann – Wheeler far from an automatic pitch though.

Cingrani @ Lee – Cingrani penciled in to make his return here.

Floyd @ J. Garcia – Floyd belongs on the mixed league radar though. Garcia might join him soon.

Estrada @ T. Wood – Wood cannot be trusted right now.

Turner @ Vogelsong – Not a great matchup for Vogelsong but I’ll chance it.

Cashner @ Nicasio

Haren @ Arroyo – This could turn into a slugfest, but hopefully Haren gets the W.

MONDAY

Smyly @ Kluber – Both getting their acts together.

Carroll @ Vargas – Still don’t trust Vargas and White Sox tied for 3rd in Majors in runs.

Keuchel @ Richards – Keuchel has been pleasant surprise but I’m not a fan of this matchup, at least for mixed league purposes.

Leake @ Strasburg – Can’t discount how well Leake has pitched this year.

Peralta @ Minor

I dropped Maybin to activate Mesaraco although have Norris as 3rd backstop,,,,,Eaton back Monday who do I drop for him,,,,,,Ackley/ Bonifacio/ Sandoval/ C young(NYM) thanks

Not sure why you need a third catcher.

Would you add Kolten Wong over Scooter Gennett in an NL only league where I am in need of AVG, SB and R

It’s close, but yeah, I’d gamble on Wong taking a step forward in his development. Weeks is hitting well too, which might cut into Scooter’s AB’s.

Homer Bailey is very frustrating ..sit him and he pitches ok play him and he is horrible would you consider dropping him?

I definitely wouldn’t drop him.

I can’t seem to get it right with Bailey either. I played him early when the match ups looked favorable and he got hammered. Sat him for a few and regretted that. Just when I start to trust him, he burns me again.

He’s been frustrating to date, but you’ll regret dropping him once he gets straightened out. He’s just too talented to continue to disappoint.
