I've got Kazmir and Cobb going tonight. I also own Greinke in one league.

Kazmir is the only guy I own in all my leagues and it's clear that I have him valued much higher than everyone else (dirt cheap K's on a good team/home ballpark? yes please). Luckily I didn't have to spend much to get him in any league so if he doesn't work out then it doesn't hurt as I'm not relying on him in any one league. It would just be a nice luxury if he were to succeed as a #3 starter like I expect.

Kluber is the other pitcher I'm dying to watch. He should have a solid start @OAK.


I'm interested in watching Ramirez also, but I'm erring on the side of caution and will keep him on the bench tonight. If he can handle the Angels lineup today, then I will not worry about starting him against too many others in the future.

I'm interested in seeing Burnett with the Phillies. I was shocked to hear him talking about retirement after the season he had. There were few people in the 200+K club last year so I want to see if he's still got it.

Ok Mets, you can place Parnell on the disabled list now.

Bad news for Kershaw. He figures to be out several weeks with back inflammation, which has proven to be more serious than thought.

Puig just hammered a HR off Kennedy. Kennedy gave him a pitch up over the heart of the plate and Puig drove it. A bit of a downer on Kennedy as he still figures to give up flyballs and he needs good movement on his fastballs for strikes.

Ump is squeezing both sides in the SD/LA game. Grienke has no hit stuff too. Hope that doesn't get into his head later.

aaaaand it's Seth Smith challenging De Aza for the MLB HR lead. Didn't have that one on my April bingo card.

Cobb was just barely missing on a lot of his pitches... He will be fun to own when he's painting the corners.

His off speed is terrible and his command is off.
Saw him hang at least 4 breaking balls and put another in the dirt for a WP and not blowing the fastball by anybody. For his owners' sake I hope that it's just be rust.

Hutchison on the other hand is outstanding.
