Yeah i agree with you that Gsellman is probably your best bet. Some of those guys are interesting, but they're more of the streaming variety.

Man, I kinda forgot I wrote that. Brutal. I like Gsellman and think his last start was encouraging, even though it came against the Phillies. I know our prospect guys are really high on him too. As always, it depends who is on the wire, but I think you could definitely do worse than Gsellman.

Yep, I think that's a safe assumption. Bummer.

Gotcha, ok that would make a little more sense. Yeah, those numbers are interesting at least, but I'm not sure what's different just yet. I'm probably staying away, but reserve the right to be pleasantly surprised when I'm wrong.

Do they have a makeup game on Thursday? I can't seem to find how he'd have two starts. I think home for <span class="statdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/glossary/index.php?search=TB" onmouseover="doTooltip(event, jpfl_getStat('TB'))" onmouseout="hideTip()">TB</span></a> and @NYY would be tougher matchups for him, though. He's been a surprise, but I'm not sold that he's a different guy. I'd look elsewhere if possible.

I'd probably go Shoemaker, Skaggs, Hahn and then sit Graveman and Bartolo (unless your league has points for sexiness). I like Graveman, but relying on him is assuming everything goes according to plan with his DL return.

Feels like the perfect description there.

It looks like they're tossing Ramirez in there so Shoemaker wouldn't start again until Wednesday 4/26. That'd line him up for 2 starts next week, though. For Hahn, it will depend on what they do with Graveman. I heard he's coming back, which would push Hahn by a day. If Hahn makes those starts, I'd have him in the same category. I'm definitely intrigued so far.

Somehow I missed (or mentally blocked, perhaps) that <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=59986">Jarred Cosart</a></span> (ARI, MIA) also has two starts this week. I would not be overly excited to pencil him into the lineup, however.

Hahn definitely has me intrigued at least, hopefully he can stay healthy so we can get a better picture. From that list, Karns would probably be the first I'd let go.

It doesn't look like they've made any decisions as to who is starting on Sunday, but the Rangers at home followed by at Kansas City would put him in the "Consider" category should Skaggs get both of those starts.

Yeah, I saw that right after this was filed. Not great. Looks like he's still listed for two starts, but they also initially said no MRI, so who knows. It's hard to count on him right now.

Also looks like the Cubs shuffled things around as well, moving <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=52691">Jake Arrieta</a></span> to Sunday. This would give <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=45548">Jon Lester</a></span> two starts, and I'd keep him in the Auto-Start category.

Death, taxes, and <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=36959">Rich Hill</a></span>'s blisters. It sounds like the Dodgers are leaning toward <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=100718">Alex Wood</a></span> making the start on Monday, but no commitments beyond that. <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=70826">Ross Stripling</a></span> could be in play too. I'm not sure either one is a great option against the Cubs on Monday. Arizona on Sunday is a bit better, but I'm not sure I'd take the risk.

Yep, good call. We'll start Week 3 next week and get back onto that schedule.

No joke, I think I had it each way at one point in time. I *think* Astro lineup or Astros' lineup would be correct, but I don't know for sure.

I wonder if they would move him off of the Saturday start as well in that instance. Either way, I'd like him against the Reds and like him less against the patient Cubs. He's going to walk a lot of guys, at least initially, but he'll get his fair share of K's as well.

His 2015 was so crazy good that I don't think it will be replicable moving forward. He could definitely be better than his 2016 numbers, but I think that's more of the ballpark that we're living in now: maybe mid 3.00's <span class="statdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/glossary/index.php?search=ERA" onmouseover="doTooltip(event, jpfl_getStat('ERA'))" onmouseout="hideTip()">ERA</span></a>, 1.2ish <span class="statdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/glossary/index.php?search=WHIP" onmouseover="doTooltip(event, jpfl_getStat('WHIP'))" onmouseout="hideTip()">WHIP</span></a>.

I'm glad you asked this. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned. It's possible he got a lot of his power from the mane, and it would be a shame for him to be at less than full strength for his debut. #freefraziersmop

Maybe unexpected, but hey, we tackle the hard hitting issues down here.

Man, I am nowhere near smart enough to have caught that. I guess that does make it a little bit better.
