Pitch or Ditch for Wednesday, May 28

MLB: Miami Marlins at San Francisco Giants

ZACH’S PICKS

Cosart @ Duffy – Duffy coming off ugly outing but I’ll give him a shot.
Archer @ Hendriks – Archer’s last two starts have been solid but this matchup worries me.
Floyd @ Lackey
House @ Noesi
Saunders @ Gibson
An. Sanchez @ Kazmir
Wilson @ King Felix
Morton @ Colon – Morton very quietly putting together a strong season. Colon has a 3.15 ERA at home.
Jackson @ Lincecum – Could be 2-1 or 10-9. No thanks.
Koehler @ Zimmermann – Koehler turning back into a pumpkin?
Lyles @ R. Hernandez – Lyles not a bad gamble in deeper leagues though. I’m just not sold on him.
Norris @ Gallardo – Benching Gallardo in shallower formats is understandable.
Kuroda @ S. Miller
Stauffer @ C. Anderson – Keep an eye on Stauffer but I’m not a fan of this matchup.
Bailey @ Kershaw – Bailey far from an automatic pitch.

Hi Big Z, shame theres no 411 podcast anymore, guess its the end of an era huh. Anyone tried to persuade Mike to come out of retirement yet? :)

I dealt K-rod and Holland for Ellsbury in my 10 team roto keeper. Gave up a fair amount but I got the speed I desperately needed, and closers are closers in my eyes (not very valuable). I still have 3 closers left anyway with Frieri/Melancon, Rodney and Mejia. Good deal? Im sure you expect Ellsbury to get hot sometime soon.

Swfcdan, I’m with you on missing missing the 411 days… And even though I listen elsewhere for my daily addiction, I read this PoD blog everyday. It has been an essential part of the successes I have had in all my fantasy baseball leagues for many years. Keep up the great work Zach and Cory… (and if Mike won’t come out of retirement, sign Nando to co-host :) )

Much appreciated, Steve. An updated PoD chart will be posted soon as well.

Yeah, it’s a bummer, though I’m trying to carry on the 411 spirit as best I can here on the blog!

Anyway, I love that trade for you as you’re getting by far the best player in the deal and K-Rod is a sell high guy considering his age and the fact that he opened the season with such crazy good numbers. Regression is bound to happen.

Zach

I have 7 starters which one would you drop…..Bailey/ Beckett/ Niese/ Lester/ Voglesong and of course the 2 keepers would be Teheran and Cole

I’d have to say Vogelsong, as I’m not fully convinced that he’s back to where he was a couple years ago.

Which side takes the cake in a 10 team, h2h league?
Kendrick and Werth or
Myers and Minor

Unless you have a glaring hole at 2B, Myers and Minor. I think Kendrick is playing over his head right now, and Myers is due to heat up at some point.

Zach

I agree, there was impressive production value on the 411 that isn’t equaled right now in the current podcasts. Strong characters, informed, interesting perspectives, thinly veiled anxiety. Hmmm, book and book tour? Cory- who was it that scarred your heart?
