Pitch or Ditch for Friday, August 15

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Oakland Athletics


W. Chen @ Kluber – Chen is a toss-up, but he’s much better at home than on the road and this matchup isn’t great.
Paxton @ Porcello – Paxton has been decent but I don’t like this matchup.
Keuchel @ Buchholz – Buchholz is DTM.
McCarthy @ Cobb
Richards @ Martinez
Stroman @ Noesi
Duffy @ Nolasco
Morton @ Roark – Morton has been a little erratic of late and the Nats offense is hot.
T. Wood @ Wheeler
Cahill @ Hand
Hammel @ A. Wood – Sticking with Hammel for now.
T. Ross @ Lynn
Cueto @ Morales
Nelson @ Greinke – Tough matchup for Nelson but he’s coming off four straight quality starts.
Hamels @ Bumgarner


In need of runs scored and W’s and was offered this trade in an NL only 5×5 keeper league
Give: Kimbrel (32 dollars)
Get: Roark (1 dollar) and Granderson (16 dollars)
What are your thoughts? I’m not going anywhere in saves and I could use SB but Granderson will kill my AVG. I may get a deal done to get Puig, K. Davis, Revere and J-Harrison for Goldschmidt.

I don’t have a problem with the Kimbrel deal but I slightly prefer the Goldschmidt trade, depending on the prices.
