With a 1W, 15K, 1.00 ERA and .43 WHIP lead I'm sitting Gio (at NYY) and bills while starting Bum and Gallardo against each other. Or maybe I should just start everyone.

Ended up having a good outing. ;-D

Yes he did, sadly much too late to save my train wreck ERA and WHIP. Even if he left the game with 0 ER, that bum Qualls would have still hosed up the W for him though. I think I'll campaign for our league to switch from W to QS next year as I have so many decent pitchers who rattle off QS but can't get run support or have lousy bullpens or both.

Pineda has been horrible for over a month now.
in his past 5 starts hes given up 4, 1, 7, 5, and 7 ER's.
Hes also given up 5 HR in those 5 starts after giving up just 6 all year before that.
wtf is wrong wth him?

Ive asked before but nobody really had anything to say... is he wearing down? or is the league adjusting to him? tipping pitches? hiding an injury?
something is not right because hes getting slapped around like jo jo reyes after being nearly unhittable for the first 2.5 months of the season

Pineda's velocity is good so it looks like he's not wearing down. http://www.fangraphs.com/pitchfxo.aspx? ... P&pitch=FA

I think this is nothing more than a bad stretch for a rookie. He's had 4 away games in a row ending with a trip to the HR happy Blue Jays and Red Sox. In addition he has 29K's and 12 BB's in those 5 games. So his peripherals are still there.

I haven't seen the other starts, but today the Red Sox were teeing off on Pineda, lacing line drives all over the place.

veresy with a hit, hit and hit on his start/sit while I hit, missed (typical Bills), hit and hit on my start/sits. And I'm holding onto a 1 RBI lead for a 9-1 win on the OLD 2nd place team. Because I'm the new 2nd place team regardless of that RBI.

I dropped Cecil yesterday thinking he'd be an awful match up vs. TEX and picked up Paulino vs. TB. Ugh! Didn't need Hort's help to blow that one. :-C
