Starting Felix/Gio/Shields and Wandy against my opponents Drabek. He's up 3-1 in wins so if I could get a Wandy win and at least 1 other I'd take the 3-3 draw there.....

I had him a few weeks ago for a two start week that got rained out, but i really dont want him on my roster when he explodes. Im already starting Masterson in that league, and both Masterson and Tomlin have a tough schedule coming up.

Yeah, If you didn't get Tomlin already, you missed out big time. I've owned him since right after his 1st start, guy's been incredibly lucky and awesome. I've been starting him automatically but with some tougher matchups coming up, I'll have to think about it.

Do I dare start Ubaldo against the Brew Crew? Hmm. I've sat him for his only 2 decent starts this year and started him I think every other time except one.

Sorry Ubaldo owners, I'm going for it! :-o

I feel bad for Edinson Volquez, poor guy can never get out of the first inning, but he has a 2.97 ERA from the 2nd on. Today is no exception.

Weird play by the Reds infield. Horrible throwing error by Hernandez. :-D

Looking at the pitch by pitch on MLB Gameday, Volquez is all over the place. Pitches described as sinkers are head high.
