Liriano @ Hammel – Hammel has been erratic lately but I’ll stick with him.
Holland @ McHugh – I’ve lost a lot of confidence in Holland. McHugh too inconsistent and Rangers bats are hot.
Archer @ Price
W. Chen @ TBD (BOS) – Chen has a 2.08 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in three starts vs. Red Sox this year.
Danks @ Warren
Hudson @ Zito – Would’ve been great to see this matchup in 2002.
Nola @ Strasburg – Nola has alternated good and bad starts this month. He’s due for a bad one, and I don’t like this matchup.
Harvey @ Lamb – Harvey is an automatic pitch even though there’s no guarantee he makes it through five innings here.
Duffey @ Simon – Gotta roll with Duffey while he’s hot.
Tomlin @ Medlen – Tomlin has been impressive but I’d rather play it safe here.
Teheran @ Nicolino – Teheran has a 2.45 ERA in three starts vs. Marlins this season. Nicolino a decent option in deeper leagues due to favorable matchup.
Wagner @ Garcia
B. Anderson @ Kendrick – Anderson actually pitched well at Coors earlier this year but I’ll take the conservative route at this stage of the season.
Hellickson @ Erlin
King Felix @ Heaney – Heaney 3 ER or fewer in four of his last five starts and he tossed seven shutout innings vs. M’s back in July.
E. Johnson @ Severino – Johnson a sneaky play in deeper leagues versus a Yankees offense that has gone cold of late.
Andriese @ Buehrle – Buehrle a viable option in deeper leagues though if you’re chasing wins.
Big Erv @ Wolf
Miller @ Koehler – Favorable matchup for both.
deGrom @ Sampson
Jimenez @ Owens
Harang @ G. Gonzalez – Losing patience with Gio but he’s dominated the Phillies this year (2.75 ERA).
Salazar @ Young
M. Perez @ Keuchel
Cravy @ Lackey
Iwakuma @ Weaver – The consistency just hasn’t been there for Weaver this season.
Heston @ Nolin
Chacin @ Shields
Al. Wood @ Rusin – Wood’s previous start at Coors Field was a disaster. I’ll pass.
Burnett @ Arrieta – Burnett not a bad play but I don’t have a whole lot of trust in him right now.
Finnegan @ Scherzer
Lynn @ Happ
Estrada @ Tillman
E. Rodriguez @ Nova
Hughes @ Kluber
Verlander @ Lewis – Lewis should probably be taken seriously by now but I still don’t trust him in 12-team mixed leagues.
Ventura @ Hendricks – I’m sensing a slugfest.
Doubront @ Santiago
McCullers @ Elias – McCullers 3 ER or fewer in each of his last six starts.
Greinke @ Peavy – Peavy has a 3.40 ERA at home this season and a 2.19 ERA this month.
