Fantasy MLB Spot Starting: 06.24.11

Welcome back to Spot Starting.  With another great outing last night by Capuano we’ve now won 4 consecutive picks.   I hope these have helped my loyal readers (all ten of you) and that you are doing much better in your leagues than I am.

For games on Saturday June 25th 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:

Josh Collmenter 48% / 46% (ARI) @ DET

Brian Matusz 41% / 34% (BAL) vs. CIN

Bronson Arroyo 35% / 42% (CIN) @ BAL

Jonathon Niese 32% / 25% (NYM) @ TEX

Jeff Karstens 19% / 16% (PIT) vs. BOS

Wade Davis 14% / 23% (TB) @ HOU

Jason Vargas 14% / 11% (SEA) @ FLA

Danny Duffy 1% / 1% (KC) vs. ChC

My Pick: Jason Vargas @ Marlins

Alternate: Danny Duffy vs. Cubs

Deep League Special: Duffy

Vargas is coming off his 2nd CG SHO of the month and gets to face a realing Marlins team that has 2 wins in June (2-19) and has never seen him.

Duffy is coming off an incredible 9K in 3.2 IP outing his last time out and faces a very average Cubs lineup.

Results from 6/23/11:

Chris Capuano: W, 6 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 7 K, 0 BB… As predicted, Capuano shut down the hapless Mariners lineup through 6 very strong innings allowing no runs and striking out 7 with no walks.  He will definitely merit another look in his next start.

Season Results (my pick only):

42 GS, 20-6, 268.1 IP, 229 H, 77 ER, 207 K, 68 BB, 2.58 ERA, 1.11 WHIP
