ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Duffy @ M. Gonzalez – Keep an eye on Duffy though.

Happ @ Dean – Happ should bounce back here as he’s facing a Twins offense that ranks last in the AL in both runs scored and OPS.

W. Perez @ Morgan

Ray @ Leake – Ray has been too inconsistent to trust while Leake sports a 1.29 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over his last two starts.

Bauer @ Kelly – Not chancing it with Bauer at Fenway.

Chatwood @ Niese

Tanaka @ Manaea – Manaea a bit too risky for my liking.

Davies @ deGrom

King Felix @ Lamb

Smyly @ Fulmer

Lester @ Cain – Cain has been dominant lately but this is a tough matchup.

Ramos @ Fiers

J. Ross @ Fernandez

Gausman @ Shoemaker

Wood @ Vargas – Vargas still worth holding onto in NL-only leagues.

SUNDAY

Ch. Anderson @ Syndergaard – Anderson is one more quality start away from getting back into my good graces.

Miley @ Simon – Miley has been solid of late but Reds rank 1st in NL in runs scored at home.

Archer @ Zimmermann

Scherzer @ Conley – Playing it safe with Conley in challenging matchup.

TBD (ATL) @ Eickhoff – Seriously, what are the odds that Eickhoff struggles twice in a row versus Braves?

Salazar @ Porcello

Bettis @ Nicasio – I’m not overly confident in either.

Ventura @ Rodon – Rodon bounced back nicely his last time out.

Hamels @ Keuchel – Sticking with Keuchel despite his inconsistency.

Stroman @ Hughes

Greinke @ Garcia

Jimenez @ Weaver – Slugfest alert!

Pineda @ Hahn – I’ve lost all faith in Pineda.

Maeda @ Rea

Hendricks @ Bumgarner

MONDAY

Lyles @ Vogelsong

Clevinger @ Latos (Gm 1)

Co. Anderson @ E. Johnson (Gm 2)

Colon @ G. Gonzalez – I’ll pass on Colon, who has struggled lately.

Velasquez @ Pelfrey

Moore @ Chen

Tropeano @ Holland – I need to see a little more consistency from both.

Kennedy @ Nolasco

Lackey @ Wainwright – Wainwright’s last outing was encouraging.

Hill @ Walker – Walker not as sharp of late but he still deserves the nod here.

Finnegan @ Kershaw – Not a good matchup for Finnegan.

Pomeranz @ Cueto

Drop Archer?

In a 12-team mixed league, no. He was actually pitching fairly well prior to his last start, and his schedule has been brutal all year.

Zach

Zach,
I’ve been offered Familia and Papelbon for Kinsler. Jansen is the only closer on my roster. I have Odor, Cano, Segura and Andrus for my 2B/SS slot. I always prefer buying bats and not pitchers, but both seem like safe bets, barring injury. It’s a 6×6 H2H league.
Thanks in advance,
Mike
