If you can't start Morrow @KC you probably aren't planning on getting more than 50 IP out of him this year.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I'm a start them if you got them type so Morrow is going even though I'm way above my IP limits. KC is also not scary right now. Garza^3 also.

Sitting Holland, Hendriks and Parker this week in favor of Bass in my 24 tm weekly pitching lineup. Each has a good reason to start but Bass has SF.

That's not really true at all. He's yet to really pitch well in his 3 efforts, and while the Kansas City offense is scuffling somewhat right now, it's completely reasonable to want to see Morrow display some of what he's capable of doing before trotting him back out there again, regardless of who the opponent is. He was terrible against Baltimore. The fact that he's even money in Vegas against Bruce Chen isn't exactly encouraging, either. I'm sitting him today.

I am, but it's a weekly points league and you gotta roll with your 2 start pitchers in this league.

Are you sure that he's getting two starts? CBS (not the best source, the worst?) has him getting skipped and starting the following Monday.

I have Edwin and Headley at the corners in a mixed league. Oh, and also two guys named Adrian Gonzalez and Prince Fielder... they're doing OK, but they're no Chase Headley, let me tell you.

Got Greinke and Capuano going tonight. Don't know why I like Capuano, but he's found his way onto a couple of my teams. Solid innings eater in the NL West... essentially he's Ted LIlly Lite. Which is not the highest of compliments, I suppose.
