Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, August 16-18
Greene @ Smyly – Smyly erratic but the Yanks aren’t hitting at all these days.
Jimenez @ Carrasco
King Felix @ Price – Must watch TV!
Peacock @ R. De La Rosa – I like what I’m seeing from Rubby lately.
Buehrle @ Danks
Ventura @ Hughes – Hughes always risky but he seems to be back on track.
Shoemaker @ Lewis – Shoemaker a decent play in deeper leagues but in a 12-team mixed, I’d play it safe.
Kendrick @ Hudson
Locke @ G. Gonzalez – Not trusting Locke against strong offense.
Gray @ Teheran
Straily @ Niese
Miley @ Alvarez – Miley a solid play on the road (5-2, 3.00 ERA this season).
Hahn @ Miller – Favorable matchup for both.
TBD (CIN) @ Lyles
Gallardo @ Kershaw
Gausman @ Salazar – Both are borderline calls.
Young @ Ray – Young continues to impress.
McHugh @ Kelly – Both pitchers make me a little nervous though.
Kuroda @ Hellickson – Sticking with Kuroda. Hellickson is pitching well enough to trust for this matchup.
Hutchison @ Carroll
Guthrie @ Milone – Favorable matchup for Milone.
Santiago @ Tepesch – I’m a fan of Santiago, but not for this start.
Arrieta @ R. Montero – Keep an eye on Montero, but he’s not mixed league material just yet.
Collmenter @ Koehler – Giving Koehler one more chance. 2.66 ERA at home this year.
Despaigne @ Wainwright – Coming off 7 IP, 0 ER, 8 K performance, Despaigne deserves a shot.
Buchanan @ Lincecum – Lincecum back to being a constant headache.
Lohse @ Haren – Still not sold on Haren.
Latos @ Flande
Volquez @ Fister
Lester @ Minor
Wilson @ Workman – Need to see one more solid outing from Wilson.
Norris @ Sale – Norris an intriguing option in deeper leagues though.
Vargas @ May – Vargas coming off CG SHO vs. OAK, but he still worries me.
Hendricks @ Torres – Hendricks has been outstanding for awhile now.
Nuno @ Zimmermann
Elias @ Williams
Big Erv @ Worley – Not too confident in Worley but the Braves have struggled offensively lately.
Leake @ Masterson – Nice bounce back opportunity for Leake. Masterson getting closer to regaining my trust.
