I'm kind of buying Alfredo Simon. If I'm not mistaken this is his first time being stretched out as a starter in a long time. Seems to have transitioned nicely. Probably just a nice streaming option at the moment, but has a chance to be rosterable, even with a low K upside.

I'm not superstitious or anything... But I might have to start benching my fantasy pitchers against the Twins. Every year the Twins just feast on my fantasy pitchers every time one of my guys goes against them. It's sick! %-6

3 RBI 6 TB .162 AVG with 6 K's

And there is home run #2 on the day. Can you make a similar comment about Brett Lawrie to kick his butt into gear please?

At least 6 of the runs are unearned.

Yeah I guess it could have been worse.

Sorry, you won't get any Lawrie love from me. How about Hill instead? 0 Hr and 13 K's in 51 AB .235

Picked up Nolasco and Simon for spot starts today in a QS league. Identical lines: 8 IP, 1 QS, 4 K, 1 ER, 5 H, 1 BB. It's nice when things turn out well. I'll try to remember this when my next 5 spot starts end up in a shellacking.

Ryan Zimmerman just injured his thumb diving back to the bag while being picked off 2B by Alex Wood and Adrelton Simmons. Went straight into the clubhouse.

Kevin Chapman in for the save opp for the Astros and immediately serves up a game tying hr. Albers got the 8th and issued a run of his own. Fields unavailable or something?

EDIT: Moreland (L), Martin (L), Arencibia were due up so I guess they were going matchups.
