Look at Liriano, after his brilliance a couple years back he fell flat on his face, now this year, after TJ, he is back making hitters look silly.

Arrieta has a 1.9 K/BB during his second go-around in AAA. I'd temper my expectations, this isn't Tillman or Matusz we're dealing with.

Bit of a bummer of a debut for Brad Lincoln last night. Gave up 5 runs in six innings of work, but according to ESPN was victimized by some poor Pirates defense which would have prevented some of the damage. Still, he did throw 56 of his 81 pitches for strikes. Do you guys think he's worth giving another start or two?

Lincoln gave up five runs in six innings on Wednesday, but was let down by some questionable defense.
An Adam Dunn dinger was a no-doubter, but the Pirates were unable to make any of three defensive plays in the bottom of the fourth that could've prevented three runs. Lincoln, who showed his athleticism with two hits and an RBI, threw 56 of 81 pitches for strikes in his six frames. His next start will come on Tuesday at home against the White Sox.

Like I said in my post above, Id treat with kid gloves. hes not pitching in a great park, nor does he have an offense that can support him. Depending on your league size, Id strictly go match-up play. If its an NL only league (12 teams +) Id roll dice.

Lincoln starts Tues vs. CHW. Is that a reasonable spot start in your mind? I am in a mixed league, H2H. I'm also targeting Morrow and/or Litsch for this weekend vs. COL (neither slots up against Jimenez either).

JUNE RANKINGS
(current ranking / team / last month ranking / current stats)

#11. Daniel Hudson - Chicago White Sox, AAA (May Rank: 9)
5-2 (9 starts), 4.47 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, 59 Ks thru 48 innings pitched.

fyi: Hudson looks to be getting the call for a start against KC this Sunday.

El Burro --- I found this to be one of the most useful posts of the season on the Cafe. Awesome job and thanks. ;-D

Hudson will be getting the call, and will sky rocket up the ranks this year. With Peavy done for the year with the detached shoulder tendon, this is huge for Daniel. He will get a very, very legit shot to become a fantasy relevant starting pitcher.

Great thanks to soto for the sweet sig!...

Would you recommend dropping Gio Gonzalez to get Daniel Hudson in? Is Hudson confirmed yet for Sunday's start. KC will counter with Greinke if I'm not mistaken.

Uh, yes, I always WHIR. Care to offer an opinion on the question I posed? Or are you just here to police the site?
