I thought about picking Dice K up as well but t just scares me too much. If you are desperate for a win I would say maybe do it but looking at his history against the mariners they have a .308 BAA and an ops of .903 in 63 AB's. In this sample size justin smoak only accounts for an 0-3 and looks like he could be a factor in today's game. Another thing I would look at is how much you need K's right now/ K/9, K/BB. Dice k did strike out 9 last time out but is the first time this season he has struck out more than 3 and is still issuing quite a few free passes. Scott baker however looks far better on paper, in 101ABs against him the current royals have been limited to a .218 BAA, and .716 Ops he also has a 3:1 K:BB against them in this time. He has at least 5 k's in his last 3 starts and has only walked 2 at most in that time. I am not going to say whether to start either of them or not because i don't know what you need or how your league is scored but of the 2 i like Baker better but won't be picking anyone up for a spot start today......
I would like to note though if Dice-k does have a good outing today I am very tempted in using him from here forward just now ready quite yet.........
