ZACH’S PICKS

Gibson @ G. Gonzalez – Gibson worth monitoring but this matchup is too difficult.

Moore @ Sabathia – Moore has been very impressive.

S. Gray @ Ar. Sanchez – Sanchez has now earned must-start status.

Lester @ Moscot

Tomlin @ Verlander – I’m a bit concerned about Verlander but I’ll pitch him here.

Harvey @ B. Norris – Great opportunity for Harvey to right the ship in favorable matchup.

S. Wright @ McHugh – McHugh testing my patience though.

Nola @ Davies – Sticking with Nola.

M. Perez @ Quintana – Perez a decent option in deeper leagues but I still wouldn’t trust him in a 12-team mixed.

Gallardo @ Young

Kazmir @ J. Gray – Tough to pitch Kazmir at Coors right now.

Niese @ Corbin – Both have been solid so far.

Iwakuma @ Tropeano – Tropeano has a 0.84 ERA through two starts this season.

Cosart @ Samardzija

Wainwright @ Cashner – If Wainwright doesn’t pitch well here, I’ll really start to get nervous. Not an easy matchup for Cashner but at least he’s at home.

Hey Zach –
I was thinking of dropping Ryan Howard and moving another eligible player into the 1B slot. My options of filling the open slot by moving said player to 1B include: Chase Utley, Adam Duvall, Melvin Upton, and Mark Reynolds (COL). Stand pat or thoughts on a move? Thanks for your help.

The categories to be considered are HR, AVG, RBI, and SB only.

I’m lukewarm on Howard. He is what he is at this point. That said, I’m not overly enthusiastic about any of those other options. At least you know Howard will give you a decent amount of homers.

Been offered Carrasco for Kemp? Good trade or not

It was a fair trade before Carrasco landed on the DL. Now you obviously want to hold off.

Zach

As for trading Kemp for Carrasco I have pederson, myers, Bradley, tomas, Mazara, Saunders and my SP are Archer, Wright, Zimmerman, Quintana, Ventura, and Eickoff. 12 team league

I’m interested to see how Wainwright does tonight too. If he nose dives again, I imagine he will be dropped on his face in many mixed leagues this weekend.

forget the Kemp for Carrasco trade but now my opponent in a 12 team league is offering me Degrom for W Myers?? I am 3-0 with my team so a little hesitant to make a move …..My OF is W Myers, Pederson, Kemp, Tomas, Mazara, C Gomez and Saunders….my SP are Archer, Eickoff, Quintana, Rodon, Zimmerman, and ventura thx

Yes, I’d run to make that trade.

Zach

If I did the trade for Degrom which of the above pitchers would you drop? Also would you add Werth, Kiermaier, Taylor or Bradley

thx Zach I took the offer of Degrom for W Myers

dropping Eickoff for Kiermaier since I got Degrom now and holding onto Archer
