Happy Harvey Day everybody!! Been awhile since I was this excited for one of these. Have the guy on my main roster, too, so I'm all kinds of excited.

Sorry for my tardiness...blame Google's new search engine rules for mobile!

Since I hate the White Sox my stone cold lock of the day is John Danks! KC's hitters are a combined .192/.257/.265 lifetime off of him so he's going to cruise through 7 giving up only a lonely solo shot to Eric Hosmer (the only KC hitter who doesn't seem to suck against him) while the wheels come off of the bus for Edinson Volquez as they seem to do on a semi-regular basis. There it is, my stone cold lock. :)

Full disclosure - I have no shares of Danks and picked up Volquez for the spot start in about half my leagues. }:-)

Outstanding! Not quite the implosion I'd hoped for out of Danks when I predicted his dominance but I'll still declare this one a win at failing to be correct! 3/3 in the young season!
