“All Things Fantasy”
2 start pitchers I like for next week
Juan Nicasio vs LAD, vs ATL
Bronson Arroyo- vs CHC, @ PIT
Phil Hughes- vs BAL, @ KC
Clay Bucholz vs OAK, vs BALT

Trevor Cahill (20%)- talked about this guy at the very beginning of spring training. He has been great so
far. his last start wasn’t that great but he did allow only 1 ER in his first 2 starts of the season. He is sporting a solid 2.84 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP, wont strike out a ton of guys but plays for a contending team and his next start is Wed against the Phillies.
Jhoulys Chacin (espn 38%) Im a big fan of this guy. He can strike out a lot of guys as he has 14 Ks,/ 15 innings this season. While he hasn’t be sharp to start the season. He hasn’t given up more than 4 hits in any of his 3 starts this season. He goes against Pitsburg on WED and I could see him getting an W with a lot of striekouts.
Ross Detwiler (espn 9.4%) has been Capital A Amazing this season. He has allowed on 1 run in 16 innings, registering 2 wins, a 0.56 era and .94 WHIP and striking out 15 batters. His next start his Friday at LAD.
Alejandro De Aza (ESPN 50%)
Jose Altueve , 2B(ESPN 45%) – will get regular Abs and will continue to produce in SBs, Runs, and AVG. He is currently hitting .321, .381 OBP,with 7 runs, 6 rbis, and 2 SBs,
Erik Bedard (ESPN 11%) has given up more than 2 ERs in any of his 4 starts this season for a 2.63 ERA, He has 17 strikeouts, He wont get a lot of wins but could be a good innings eater and get some Ks.
Wei Yin Chen, P Baltimore (2%)- has had 3 good starts to start the season. In 3 starts he hasn’t given up more than 2 ERs, and 15 ks in 17 innings, a 2.60 ERA and his next start is Saturday against OAK
Travis hafner- hes old, hes a DH and he can hit the ball a loongg ways. He has a .357 BA and a Redonkuloius . 507 OBP, 2 HRs, 8 RBIs.

Michael Pineda- going for an MRI tom, Have a gut feeling this guy isn’t going to pitch this season.
Marco Scutaro- why is this guy owned in 88% of ESPN leagues, is it his .222 BA, or 1 RBI, even his 2 SB are pretty bad compared to everything else.
Jonathan Sanchez- Has been brutal this year but is owned in 58% of ESPN leagues. has given up 9 runs in 12 innings for a brutal 6.39 ERA, His WHIP is almost 2 at 1.89. Just drop him before you hurt your team more
Peter Bourjos (41%)
Players to trade for
Eric Hosmer has been dreadful to start the season, but I got a good feeling he will pick back it up.
