Don't have any starts today and was almost desperate enough to spot start James McDonald because the Padres step to bat with wiffle ball bats I think. I'll be patient, though. Clayton Richard gets the Pirates later this week @ Petco and the real interesting one I'm looking at is Josh Tomlin @ Oakland, who I'm not really sure how he's doing it...


I'm starting McDonald today against the Padres. They are that bad (although they will probably score 8 today). I'm even considering Karstens tomorrow. Against the Padres in PetCo? Almost anyone is worthy of starting.


I'm rolling with Karstens tomorrow. :-o

If the line was a little closer I'd consider McDonald. He's a +125 underdog, with the silver lining being that there's -120 on Under 7 Total Runs. However, as I said previously, the possibility for absolute implosion is too great for my taste. I'll check the same things for Karstens tomorrow (though he faces Latos, who is 0 - 4 and has to get a Win eventually, right? :-o).

For the week I'm looking at Spot Start candidates in: Clayton Richard vs Pit Weds, Josh Tomlin @ Oak Weds, Phil Humber @ Sea Thurs, Freddy Garcia @ Det Weds, Chris Capuano vs SF Weds...

Is it just me, or does it seem like there has been a ridiculously high number of rainouts already this season?

There's a big thread in General Talk.

Poor Chris Volstad isn't prepared for the hit parade that Big Berk and Holliday are going to put on tonight.
