Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week 10

24

Paul Sporer

Paul helps you decide which two-start pitchers are worth using this week and which ones you should avoid.

Welcome to the Weekly Pitching Planner. Each week I will cover the pitchers are who slated to make two starts and help you decide who you should start and who you should sit. Sometimes guys will be in the “consider” where they might have one good start, but a second tough one and then your league settings might determine whether or not you should go forward with him. The pitchers will be split by league then by categories:

Auto-Starts – These are your surefire fantasy aces. You paid a handsome sum for them either with an early draft pick or high dollar auction bid so you’re starting them anywhere, anytime. Guys can emerge onto or fall off of this list as the season evolves. There won’t be many – if any – notes associated with these groupings each week. We are starting them automatically so why do I need to expound on how awesome they are and will be in the coming week?

There sure is a lot to say about these teams, considering they are (on average) just a bunch of .500 clubs.

Weekly Planner: Week 18

0

Paul Sporer

This week finds tons of two-start pitchers worth using, so have at it.

Despite actually posting better peripherals than last year, Ian Kennedy’s ERA and WHIP have lagged this year, but he appears to be getting back on track with back-to-back gems and a chance for a third straight and second in a week when he faces the Mets on Saturday. He is still toting a 4.20 ERA, though, so there may still be time to buy at a discount. Anyone paying attention isn’t just going to give him away, but it’s worth a shot. Frankly, I’d buy at market value, so any discount would be icing.

It was supposed to be a star-studded week in the NL with six auto-starters going, but Clayton Kershaw, R.A. Dickey, and Roy Halladay have all been smacked around in their initial start of the week. At least Zack Greinke, Gio Gonzalez, and Josh Johnson have held up their end. Of the three duds, I’m not at all worried about Kershaw, am slightly concerned about Dickey’s horrid July, and am legitimately worried that Halladay simply isn’t 100 percent yet.

Weekly Planner: Week 10

Paul Sporer

Another round of two-start pitchers awaits fantasy players this week.

Kevin Millwood just keeps dominating.  He started off this week with a third straight strong outing against the Texas Rangers.  I’m not sure how he is doing it, but he is definitely on an incredible run.  And yet, I am still leery.  It was nice to see a gem from Matt Moore, and his curveball spurred the 10 strikeout performance.

I would feel fortunate to get out of Colorado with four earned runs on 10 hits if Wandy Rodriguez were on my team.  It could’ve been much worse, and there are maybe five or six pitchers in the National League I would trust in Coors Field (Kershaw, Hamels, Lee, Greinke, Gallardo and a healthy Halladay) at this point.  Bronson Arroyo has come back to Earth with a 5.01 ERA in his last four outings including four earned runs in three of them.  He is almost back to a full on sit for me.
