2 start Sale and Harvey (and Estrada) for the first week of the playoff matchup. Each matchup is two and there are 8 playoff teams (24 total) so we need to start early.

Some bitter irony since I'm the team that I traded Jose Fernandez (plus a lesser prospect) for CarGo 2 months ago. CarGo is of course on the DL while Jose Fernandez is awesome.

Darvish K's 15 Astros in 8 innings would have never happened if they had Trout. ;-)

My 14.5 game lead in my H2H lead shrunk to 5.5 games over three different teams over the last two weeks. Needless to say, I need a monster week.

The Sale/Hamels starts really got me off to a good start, although my opponent has Latos.

Bumgarner/Bailey/Scherzer/Archer tomorrow, and all six guys have two start weeks. Could be the turnaround I'm looking for or a total disaster.
Goldy is King.
