Anyone Starting Vogolsong Tomorrow?

He said his bad starts against the cubs were due to him tipping his pitches....... He worked some kinks out and could be good tomorrow.

Anyone starting him against the Reds?

I would proceed with caution if you have to start him, but i would recommend against it that lineup is going to be pissed off

Agreed. You think the change in mechanics will work - pick him up, bench him, see how it goes. I, personally, would not start him.

only in the a very deep league and even then i would have to need a starter pretty bad. Otherwise, make him show you something for a couple of starts. It seems to me The 'i was tipping my pitches' seems to be a very convenient excuse to getting hammered lately.

Hell no. Unless my ace was Darrell May, Vogelsong would be on my bench until he shows he can give up less than 7 runs in a game a few times. Sure maybe he won't be tipping pitches anymore, but do you really want to start a rookie who gave up 15 runs over the past 2 games? I don't.

Can't start a guy I don't own, and I sure don't want to own Vogelsong. I'm in 15-18 team leagues and I still don't want him.
