I'm holding Wood. :-D
Seriously he'll be back in the rotation. I think the Braves are trying to limit his innings.

Pretty much my entire pitching staff is going today and will decide two key matchups (24 tm league - 4 matchups/wk).

Garza
Buehrle
Lackey
Deduno
Estrada has already pitched

Come back soon Sale/Holland because this isn't a playoff rotation even in a 24 tm league.

Any reason to be shy about using Lackey vs DET?

I've been very conservative in my pitching starts to this point, but Lackey continues to deal.

Also, absolutely loving Teixeira this season. Looks like he's healthier than he has been in a while and has a chance to produce like he did between 2009-2011

Anyone know what happened to Kazmir?

EDIT. Just saw he was ejected for arguing balls and strikes. Whew, no injury.

Was one of the more ridiculous ejections I've ever seen. Ump missed a call, Kazmir argued from the mound, ump warned him and then threw him out about a second after the warning. Talk about an ump show.

Dellin Betances is having an incredible season. 15+ K/9, <4 BB/9 and a high GB rate.

I was one of many that predicted the demise of the Yankees this year but they added Tanaka who has been incredible and have put together a devastating bullpen.
