Hammel @ A. Cole
Oberholtzer @ Hutchison – Hutchison still too inconsistent for my liking.
Wandy @ Ventura
Garza @ Graham
Bumgarner @ S. Gonzalez
Chavez @ Kelly – Tough matchup for Chavez but he’s been dominant for awhile now.
Jimenez @ Salazar– I’ll never fully trust Ubaldo.
Despaigne @ Lorenzen – Despaigne has been impressive lately but not chancing it on the road in tough environment. Lorenzen’s 18-to-19 K/BB scares me.
Phelps @ Kendrick – I’m a Phelps fan, but playing it safe in Coors.
Locke @ Teheran – Despite overall struggles, Teheran has been excellent at home (3-0, 1.82 ERA, 0.97 WHIP).
Price @ Danks
Richards @ Warren – Warren working on four straight quality starts.
Colome @ King Felix – I’m still a believer in Colome but he needs to be benched for the time being.
Garcia @ Kershaw – Might as well roll with Garcia while he’s healthy.
Colon @ C. Anderson – Pitch Colon only in deeper mixed leagues. Very dangerous matchup.
B. Norris @ Carrasco
Wilson @ Sabathia – Wilson has been a pleasant surprise, but not throwing him out there at Yankee Stadium.
McHugh @ Dickey
Cashner @ Cueto
Graveman @ Buchholz – Graveman has been much better since his return, but I’m still not comfortable pitching him in tougher matchups.
G. Cole @ A. Wood
Vogelsong @ O’Sullivan
Simon @ Samardzija – Just when we thought Samardzija was back…I’d still lean towards pitching him here.
Lewis @ Guthrie – I have little interest in riding the Lewis roller-coaster.
Fiers @ Pelfrey – Fiers seems to have righted the ship.
Hendricks @ Zimmermann
Archer @ Montgomery – Montgomery could soon become mixed league relevant but I need to see a bit more.
Urena @ J. De La Rosa
deGrom @ Collmenter – Collmenter at home and facing an inconsistent lineup? Yes, please!
Lynn @ Greinke
Nelson @ Burnett – Nelson a true toss-up, but I’ll go for it.
Hand @ Estrada – Estrada on a nice roll of late.
Kennedy @ Miller – Kennedy is driving me crazy this year. I’ll ditch, which probably means he will throw a shutout.
Hamels @ Leake – Leake very tough to trust these days but this matchup is about as good as it gets.
McCullers @ Sale
Vargas @ Hughes – Hughes needs to be avoided for now.
Lackey @ Hale – Lackey pitching too well to sit, even at Coors.
R. De La Rosa @ Bolsinger – Not in love with this matchup for either.
