Fantasy MLB Spot Starting: 06.09.11

Welcome back to Spot Starting.  Well good ole Bud came through and kept our personal winning streak alive and dropped our ERA under 3!  Now if I could only follow my own advice maybe I could win a game in my league.

For games on Friday June 10th these selected pitchers might be had in your league (less than 50% owned in Yahoo! or ESPN) with percent owned Yahoo/ESPN, (team), and opponent:

Edwin Jackson 40% / 16% (CWS) vs. OAK

Carlie Morton 34% / 39% (PIT) vs. NYM

Dillon Gee 28% / 30% (NYM) @ PIT

Jake Arrieta 21% / 13% (BAL) vs. TB

Travis Wood 17% / 31% (CIN) @ SF

Fausto Carmona 15% / 5% (CLE) @ NYY

My Pick: Dillon Gee @ Pirates

Alternate: Charlie Morton vs. Mets

Deep League Special: none – slim pickings today

Gee has already faced the Pirates twice in his young career including May 30th with good success.  He’s won his last 4 starts and is 6-0 on the season which is really incredible considering he plays for the Mets, I mean really.  But with his .232 BABIP and 4.04 xFIP the ride will come to an end, but hopefully not Friday.

On the flip side, Morton isn’t a bad match up against those Mets.

Results from Wednesday 06.08.11:

Bud Norris: W, 8 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 2K, 5 BB…Norris took a no-hitter into the 7th inning before giving up a bomb to Berkman which accounted for the only run and hit he would give up.  The K’s were not there and he was a little wild with the 5 Ks but you’ll take the result and so will I.

Season Results (my pick only):

33 GS, 15-5, 211.1 IP, 183 H, 69 ER, 166 K, 59 BB, 2.94 ERA, 1.15 WHIP

Well, at 33 GS, that’s a full season’s results for a Starter, might get some top 10 Cy Young votes with that line!
