I'm starting him today. What the heck, right? It's H2H, the Phillies are K happy from what I remember, and have a lot of LHB.

Just like when I started Lincecum against the Braves I think this is the type of matchup that heavily favors a pitcher who can be wild at time. The Phillies other than Utley are the type of team that will get themselves out on bad pitches so if you are a little bit wild it can actually help you at times. These types of offenses eat up guys with bad stuff but struggle against guys with good stuff but poor command.

was only sort of watching, but I didnt see a fastabal past 93, did anyone see one faster? They were raving that he was hitting 96 on hte 7th inning or something like that on his last start. From my perspective he was throwing his slider way too much and it wasn't fooling anyone.

I don't know what's really the reason for pitchers that don't pitch in extremely hitters or pitchers parks, but Kazmir's SIERA on the road was 5.15, every other estimator had him as an elite pitcher. I picked him up, don't know if i'm regreting it, holding him for a better pitcher, or just waiting fora good matchup and see his fastball's feedback as compared to his previous starts' reports, he didn't have anything in the tank today.

If that is what his bad games look like I'll be happy with it as long as there are good games too.

He was throwing 89-91, with minimal movement. He looked awful. I am praying for DL instead of having to eat another start in my weekly league. :-P
