I'm feeling lucky. I'm rolling with Volquez in one league...

I also have Buehrle in my 24 tm league. It's a strange that my worst pitcher on both teams gets the first start of the season.

MLB.com is a bunch of bull. They offer one free game a day, and there are all these great teams and pitching matchups today. And what game do we get free? Romero and the Blue Jays against Masterson and the Indians. Thanks a lot for choosing the clearly worst game on the board.....

Then gives up double to the first batter he faces in the 2nd.

This free MLB TV is great. Good thing they picked the Jays. I guess they're featuring the new Pete Rose, Brett Lawrie. Give the people what they want, eh?

Lawrie is 0/1. I'm about to trade him for David Freese.

RedHopeful wrote:The ace pitcher to ponder today is Lester. Detroit's spring did nothing but strengthen the notion they can hit. When you top it off with Lester generally being a slow starter, it makes for a scary combo. In a couple of roto's I'm leaning towards sitting him. Anyone have a good feeling he's going to impress today?
Hope you started him despite his impending Loss.

Valverde didn't waste much time getting that first blown save out of the way.
