Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, June 7-9

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at St. Louis Cardinals

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Miller @ Buehrle – Shelby struggling lately and this is a rough matchup.

Feldman @ Gibson – Picking on Astros no longer a good idea.

Tomlin @ Tepesch

Elias @ Cobb – Elias coming off CG SHO and Rays lineup is underperforming.

Gray @ M. Gonzalez

Lester @ Scherzer

Phelps @ Duffy – Duffy a decent gamble in deeper leagues though.

Sale @ Shoemaker

Wolf @ Samardzija

Garza @ Volquez – Garza starting to right the ship.

R. Hernandez @ Simon – Simon fading a bit but still worth using here.

Greinke @ Chacin

Colon @ Hudson

Treinen @ Cashner – Returning Cashner might be on a pitch count though.

Big Erv @ Miley – Miley has a 6.43 ERA at home this year.

SUNDAY

J. Garcia @ Hutchison – Keep an eye on Garcia going forward but this isn’t a good spot to pitch him.

Kazmir @ Jimenez – This one could get ugly in a hurry for Ubaldo.

King Felix @ Archer – Archer finding his groove.

Kuroda @ Shields

McHugh @ Deduno – Very favorable matchup for McHugh, who has to be taken seriously at this point.

Masterson @ Saunders – Not giving up on Masterson but this is a scary matchup.

Quintana @ Wilson – Expect Wilson to bounce back from disaster outing.

Lackey @ An. Sanchez

Buchanan @ Bailey – Homer showing signs of life.

Gallardo @ Morton – Could be 2-1 or 10-9. I’ll chance it.

Alvarez @ Arrieta – Alvarez 21 IP, 0 ER over his last three starts.

Wheeler @ Lincecum – Lincecum is DTM.

Zimmermann @ Stults

Kershaw @ J. De La Rosa

Harang @ C. Anderson

MONDAY

TBD (SEA) @ Price – Eventually, Price’s exceptional K rate and K/BB will be reflected in his ERA.

Peavy @ Norris

Nolasco @ Dickey – Dickey has been very inconsistent this season but I do like the matchup.

House @ Martinez

Porcello @ Noesi – Still not sold on Porcello but he’s been solid for the most part.

Nuno @ Vargas – Vargas has a 1.77 ERA over his last three starts and Yankees have had trouble scoring runs on a consistent basis.

Chavez @ Richards

Haren @ Cingrani

Jackson @ Morton

Floyd @ Bergman

Cosart @ Collmenter

Strasburg @ Vogelsong – Vogelsong quietly regaining ’11 and ’12 form.

I Had 0 saves and lost by a half point…..Nathan is awful and Rosenthal is ok at times,,,,could try trading Votto for a closer but who? or just stay put and hope to win with lack of saves….Im 8-2 with a 3 game lead in a 12 team head to head
