Alex Cobb AT Boston?
Christian Friedrich AT Cincinnati?
neither pitcher has face either of these teams, so that's in favor of the pitcher right?
Cobb had a good start against Atlanat, and they're a good hitting team right?
Friedrich had a TERRIBLE start last time against Seattle, but his previous starts were only 1 ER allowed each, both on the road. so maybe this game on the road should be good?
I'm thinking about starting them both, but not sure.

Saw this on Yahoo:

Current Marlins are hitting .067 (1-for-15) against Lincecum since last year.


I'm putting him in. God help me.

No go on Friedrich at Cincy for me - Cincy's on fire and B Phillips is regaining form along with Votto.

I'm debating dropping A Gordon for Rizzo in a keeper (Gordon is my UTIL, I also have Dunn at that spot). :-o

I decided to sit Friedrich but start Cobb, along with Burnett against the Cubs. don't need the risk of Friedrich.

Josh Harrison is interesting. making his 4th start in the OF tonight, and already has eligibility in yahoo at 2B/3B/SS. currently has a 9 game hitting streak coming into tonight.

He'll have a lot of wiggle room. Single machine pitcher Josh Johnson has already given up 6 hits to the anemic Giants in just 2 innings.

Haha!

I started Holland based on the odds makers and Ks, glad I did now.

Also have Smyly and Ervin Santana (who I think will be terrible just because he's been kind of a jerk this season and he is due for some jerkiness.)

Just acquired Lincecum this morning. You can only get better from here, right?

Cliff Lee is pitching better than the box score will indicate. Freese's 3B was an out that Victorino lost in the lights. Same thing with Adams' ball this inning. Robinson singled on a ball that went about 35 feet down the 3b line.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

I would like to nominate Alexi Ramirez as the worst player in the the league. Looks like Dunn gave him whatever he had last year.
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)
