Marlins vs Nationals rained out

Sunday's game between the Marlins and Nationals has been postponed due to rain.
A makeup date has not been announced yet. Scheduled starters Josh Johnson and Gio Gonzalez will presumably be bumped back to Tuesday.

My closers on 1 team were Madson/Santos/Myers, didn't spend a top 10 pick and completely blew it anyway.

I'll be paying attention to Duffy's start, love the velocity and strikeouts but 98% strand rate, look forward to seeing how he shakes out. :-b

Got stuck playing against the team who has Verlander's 2-start week... So, now I'm looking at a spot start or 2 today. Who do you guys like of:

Niemann (TB) vs. MIN
Blanton (PHI) @ SD
Bass (SD) vs PHI
Ross (OAK) vs CLE

If you can go with two, I'd go Blanton/Bass and call it a day.

NL only trifecta going today.
Wandy, Delgado, and Blanton.
I'm really worried about Blanton of course, because if he has another bad start today, that'll be two in a row and I'll probably have no chance at winning this season. ;)

Thats kinda what I was thinking myself. If you had to pick 1 tho, who?

And to vent a little, I HAD Gio going today, but with that game getting PPD, I'm left with the above and the choice of starting Bard vs the Yanks :~(

that's nothing. I play in a 24 team league and in one of the matchups (4 total) I'm up against a 2 start Halladay and Verlander. This league also caps the # of SP'ers that you can use each week at 5 so any 2 start pitcher is a big advantage.

I pick Blanton out of your list.
