Hope you all benefited from my daily PoD advice throughout the season. I’ve always wanted to keep a record of the stats for all of my “going out on a limb” picks, but it does sound like a lot of work. The season is so long. Well, maybe next year!
Miley @ Severino
Colon @ Klein
Kuhl @ Garcia – Kuhl a toss-up. I’d lean towards passing.
Chen @ Roark
Kershaw @ Blach
Lester @ Adleman
Bauer @ Volquez – The risk outweighs the reward with Bauer.
Happ @ E. Rodriguez – Tough matchup for Rodriguez.
Santiago @ Shields – Santiago has been shaky of late. Shields pitched well his last time out, but he still cannot be trusted.
Zimmermann @ Blair – Playing it safe with Zim.
Odorizzi @ Lewis
Peralta @ Hoffman
Richard @ Bradley – Richard a tempting play in deeper formats though. Bradley too inconsistent lately.
McHugh @ Skaggs – McHugh went 3-0 with a 3.10 ERA in five September starts.
Cotton @ Iwakuma – Cotton has been impressive.
Gausman @ Cessa – Gausman worth a shot here.
Ar. Sanchez @ Price
Rodgers @ Chacin
Whitley @ M. Perez
Koehler @ Scherzer – Koehler has been shaky of late and this is a dangerous matchup.
Ynoa @ Eickhoff
Maeda @ Moore
Berrios @ Sale
Manaea @ King Felix – Manaea pitched to a 0.50 ERA and 0.78 WHIP in three September starts.
Verlander @ Teheran
Hendricks @ Stephenson
Cravy @ Marquez
Clemens @ Koch
Tomlin @ Kennedy – Tomlin carries some deep-league appeal though.
Vogelsong @ Wainwright – Wainwright continues to disappoint.
