Buehrle is for sure a good one, Paxton shouldn't be available. I like Bartolo Colon as a sleeper tomorrow.

For tomorrow I would get Odorizzi against KC if it's available, but I might be willing take a gamble on Morrow against Houston as well. Juan Nicasio is my sleeper for tomorrow even though it's in Coors Field.

I wouldnt gamble on Morrow against a high school team right now. Waiting to see him succeed at least once before I touch him.

Yeah I don't blame you at all. Honestly I probably wouldn't end up taking the Morrow gamble just yet. It's sad because he is a guy I REALLY liked 2 seasons ago and had him on a lot of teams. Injuries suck, but he is a guy that historically has location problems. I don't care how bad the offense is, too many walks will make them look like a top 5 offense.

Lots of major risk/reward options tomorrow. I think I'd go, in order...
Ervin Santana
Zach McAllister
Jesse Chavez
Trevor Bauer
Juan Nicasio
Brandon Morrow

Really would only feel comfortable with Ervin or McAllister, but if you've got a strong stomach, the others could pay huge dividends if they don't douse your ratios in kerosine and light a match.

Well I knew ranking Nicasio so high was bold, but it's not looking so good when McAllister puts up a stat line like that and the white sox just put up 15 runs last night in Coors Field.
