4/8 Cheering, Venting & Latos Intolerence

Postby bigh0rt » Wed Apr 08, 2015 8:42 am

Several things I had read over the winter and spring listed Mat Latos as a guy to avoid in 2015 (many said Wainwright as well, and he looked fine the other night), and boy I'm glad I listened after the smallest sample size imaginable.

Today's Games:

Minnesota vs Detroit 1:08 PM
Ricky Nolasco vs Anibal Sanchez

St. Louis vs Chicago 2:20 PM
Lance Lynn vs Jake Arrieta

Boston vs Philadelphia 7:00 PM
Rick Porcello vs Aaron Harang

Toronto vs New York
R.A. Dickey vs Michael Pineda

New York vs Washington
Jacob deGrom vs Jordan Zimmermann

Pittsburgh vs Cincinnati
Gerrit Cole vs Mike Leake

Atlanta vs Miami
Shelby Miller vs Tom Koehler

Baltimore vs Tampa Bay
Miguel Gonzalez vs Jake Odorizzi

Chicago vs Kansas City
Jose Quintana vs Danny Duffy

Colorado vs Milwaukee
Eddie Butler vs Wily Peralta

Cleveland vs Houston
Carlos Carrasco vs Scott Feldman

San Francisco vs Arizona
Chris Heston vs Jeremy Hellickson

San Diego vs Los Angeles
Andrew Cashner vs Brandon McCarthy

Texasvs Oakland
Ross Detwiler vs Scott Kazmir

Los Angeles vs Seattle
Matt Shoemaker vs Hisashi Iwakuma

Nice to see Pearce with 2 HR in as many Games, continuing what he started last year in not sucking. Today I'm rolling Carrasco, Iwakuma, and maybe against my better judgment, Shoemaker. Keeping a close early eye on Travis Snider, Devon Travis, and Michael Taylor, to see how the first few weeks of the season treat them. Nice to see a full slate of games today, including some day action!

I expect Devon Travis to be that minor leaguer that kind of comes out of nowhere and becomes a Neil Walker type. I have him stuck in my MiLB system but can't promote him because I would have to cut an MLB'er in a 24tm league to do it. Anybody with a pulse that can breathe has a value in this league and I can't just cut guys.

In my new series to highlight the futility of my certainty I present to you The Loveable Losers Stone Cold Lock of the Day #3:

The Boston Red Sox will beat Aaron Harang around the park today. I'll put the o/u at 5 runs before he's chased and 3 innings. Given how right I was on C.J. Wilson getting bombed (8ip, 0.00 era, 0.25 whip) and Yovani Gallardo putting up a dominant performance (4ip, 9.00 era, 1.75 whip) I expect you all to rush to your favorite gambling sites right away!

Dangit, the Red Sox decided to piss on my daily lineup and announce that David Ortiz will be sitting and Mike Napoli starting after there isn't a darned thing I can do about it. :|
