After making 2 - 3 posts about how cautious I generally am with my starts, I'm throwing that entire thing to the wind today and throwing 4 different guys who are all questionable to me: Teheran @COL (I don't feel safe starting anyone at Coors, but let the good times roll), Dallas Keuchel vsARI (hoping the ride can continue and he's not reaching the point where he turns back into a pumpkin), Wily Peralta @NYM (this one I feel the best about, sadly), and Phil Hughes @TOR (asking for trouble, but my options this week are really limited). Lot of potential for disaster here, but it's H2H, and there aren't a ton of great spot possibilities staring me in the face, so I'll roll the dice.

I'm 30 innings strong with my $40 pitching staff keeper team so I've pared my starters down to Lester/Buehrle/Porcello & have Weaver going today v. Oak. I know my starters looks ugly but I'm still hanging onto 1st by a thread. Though I have to admit that going into this season I didn't keep anyone from last year and didn't expect to compete this year so I spent big on offense looking to trade the hot ones to teams in the hunt for some guys I could keep next year. :-D

Willingham is just crushing everything right now. Be nice if he continues to do so until he lands on the DL again.

I love Butler for Ross.



Also, I like the new Yordano Ventura. Most guys take years to figure out that you can't just try to strike everyone out. The last two games against the Cards and Indians, Ventura has induced tons of ground balls, struck out very few, and gone deep into games without giving up runs. Looks like he learned a little pitching during his time on the DL. ;-D

Can't express how much I enjoy Joba, Kennedy, and Hughes all pitching so well after leaving the Bronx.
