Jose Quintana


Pomeranz @ Nolasco – decent matchup but Pomeranz has not been impressive

Frias @ Fiers – exploit this matchup for Frias

Arrieta @ Lackey

Lobstein @ Quintana – Quintana has dominated his last two starts but Tigers crushed him before that

Kluber @ Volquez – hang with ‘em

Tillman @ Eovaldi – bad matchups with high blowup risk

DeSclafani @ Burnett

N. Martinez @ Archer

Despaigne @ R. De La Rosa – Rubby dodges Coors start thanks to the rain

McHugh @ Santiago

Haren @ Hudson – old dudes aren’t done yet!

***ZACH SAYS “I’ll ditch Despaigne. The matchup, in a hitter’s park, is concerning and he’s coming off a terrible performance in relief last Tuesday. I also don’t trust Rubby enough against a Padres team that leads the NL in runs scored. Agree on rest.”

12 team 6×6 (ops) h2h league, who is the best band-aid for rendon at 2b:
d. lemahieu
b. phillips
j. harrison
m. prado
l. valbuena

I’d go with Phillips. He’s been a pleasant surprise thus far, and he’s even running again (three steals).
