It’s a rough week in the NL, where no one with two scheduled outings is worthy of automatic, fore-sure, consecutive starts. Carlos Carrasco and Chris Sale, conversely, are ready to pitch two.
In the NL, Gerrit Cole gets the band back together, and Jon Lester remains steady if less spectacular than the 2016 version. In the junior circuit, Carlos Carrasco and Dallas Keuchel are must-plays.
It’s Happening! The Cubs have called up their top prospect, infielder Ian Happ, to the big-league club. What should we expect?
You might be uncertain as to whom to start, but Dirty Harry, Zack Morris, Pete Campbell and Slim Shady know.
Jacob deGrom, Carlos Martinez and Max Scherzer qualify as must-starts in the NL, with Carlos Carrasco Justin Verlander joining them in AL. Conversely, do everything you can to sit AJ. Griffin and Wily Peralta.
Noah Syndergaard is an auto-start (unless he’s not). So it’s going to be one of those kind of weeks.
Mister Christian / Oh the time has come / And you know that you’re the only one…
We promise we don’t do a “Hu’s on first” joke. We make no other promises.
