These 3 combined to give me 7.5 total points in their 3 starts last week (perspective: Moore gave me 29.5 himself last night), so to say I'm gun shy to use 30% of my allotted starts for the week today on them is a bit of an understatement... That being said, I'm rolling Tony Cingrani vsCHC, Jose Fernandez @MIN, and Alexi Ogando @LAA all out there today, with Julio Teheran firmly planted on my bench, and likely headed for Free Agency unless he impresses today.

Also, given that he joins my team today, I hope the answer to the Poll Question is Giancarlo Stanton, and today. Although I'd also settle for Craig, who faces a LHP yet again today, in Ross Detwiler...

I'm debating Ogando right now. Willing to take advice.

I went with Big Papi as well. Kemp wasn't a big oversight at all. He isn't hitting a HR today.

Just checked weather.com for Denver, and it doesn't get above 20% chance of snow all day I don't think.
