Fantasy MLB Spot Starting 08.16.11

Welcome back to Spot Starting.

For games on Wednesday August 17th  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:

Mark Buehrle 47% / 50% (CWS) vs. CLE

Bud Norris 34% / 35% (HOU) vs. ChC

Dillon Gee 27% / 26% (NYM) @ SD

John Lackey 27% / 20% (BOS) vs. TB

Carl Pavano 13% / 6% (MIN) @ DET

Brandon McCarthy 7% / 10% (OAK)  vs. BAL

My Pick: Bud Norris vs. Cubs

Alternate: Mark Buehrle vs. Indians

Deep League Special: Carl Pavano @ Tigers

Our old friend Bud Norris makes his triumphant return to our Picks.  He’s starting to show signs of the massive strikeout totals he put up earlier in the year.  He has also had great success against the Cubbies in 3 career starts – 1.69/1.36/.234, 22 K in 21.1 IP.  Incredibly though, he’s only 1-2 against them, but that’s just because he plays for the worst team in baseball.

Buehrle still hasn’t given up more than 3 ER in a game since April 22nd.  That’s pretty incredible.

Season Results (my pick only):

63 GS, 28-12, 388 IP, 370 H, 141 ER, 291 K, 107 BB, 3.27 ERA, 1.23 WHIP
