In some ways spot starting is like a drug. You have just enough success that you're addicted and pretty soon you're picking any matchup. Today Blackburn got rocked but fortunately my opponent had Wade Davis.
all that bum needed was 1 more lousy out to get me the QS and then he could've parked himself on the bench where he belongs... but no, he couldn't even do that. now my ERA and WHIP are both unrecoverable for the week after my first 2 starts. thanks Arrieta, thanks Lester.
Glad I stuck with Kelly Johnson. After an abysmal April, he is streaking lately, and setting up a pretty good stat pace for the season. (27 HR & 24 SB) Not saying he'll get that mark, but he is on pace for it.
