Plus, our overrated and underrated teams for 2015
Bauer @ Simon – Tough test for both but both have been lights out.
Arrieta @ DeSclafani
Volquez @ Danks – Volquez is deserving of this start but I’ll never trust him.
Harvey @ Sabathia – Sabathia decent so far but I’m sitting him vs. red-hot Mets.
Feldman @ Graveman – Graveman is a mess right now.
Strasburg @ Koehler – Not trusting Koehler in this matchup.
D. Norris @ TBD (TB) – Sticking with Norris for now.
Masterson @ W. Chen
Miller @ Buchanan
Wainwright @ Peralta – Peralta very erratic thus far and I don’t like this matchup.
Hudson @ J. De La Rosa – Sitting Hudson at Coors.
Burnett @ R. De La Rosa – Burnett a borderline call. His 2.00 ERA somewhat aided by good fortune.
McCarthy @ Kennedy – I’ll go for it with Kennedy in first start back.
Lewis @ Wilson – Wilson bounced back nicely his last time out but he still makes me too nervous.
May @ Paxton – Keep an eye on May in deeper formats. Paxton needs to earn back my trust.
Carrasco @ Lobstein – Playing it safe with Lobstein, who has allowed too many baserunners to maintain his current 3.27 ERA.
T. Wood @ Marquis
G. Gonzalez @ Haren
Buehrle @ Archer – Buehrle worth consideration in deep mixed/AL-only leagues but he’s giving up a lot of hits.
Miley @ B. Norris – I’m expecting better results from Miley going forward but he’s too risky here.
Cahill @ Williams
Vargas @ Noesi
Lynn @ Fiers – Bench but don’t cut the struggling Fiers.
N. Martinez @ Santiago – As Cory likes to say, blue-plate special.
Wojciechowski @ Pomeranz – Not ultra-confident in Pomeranz but I’ll throw him out there.
Gibson @ Iwakuma – Very little upside with Gibson.
B. Anderson @ Morrow
Lincecum @ Matzek – Tiny Tim has been a pleasant surprise this year but no way am I chancing it at Coors.
Liriano @ Hellickson
Niese @ Eovaldi – Eovaldi pitching well enough to deserve a shot here.
Vargas @ Kluber
Ar. Sanchez @ Kelly – 9-to-12 K/BB ratio for Sanchez so far.
Fister @ Stults
Noesi @ Jimenez
Karns @ Warren – Warren could become mixed league relevant at some point this season, but not yet.
Nelson @ Marquis – Nelson outstanding his last time out vs. these same Reds.
Gee @ Cosart – Don’t forget about both of these guys though.
Walker @ Gallardo – This game could be 2-1 or 10-9. Pass.
Worley @ Hammel – Not giving up on Hammel but he’s been no better than mediocre.
Price @ Milone
Hamels @ Lackey
Matzek @ C. Anderson – Impressive results from Anderson so far.
Lincecum @ B. Anderson
McHugh @ Shields
