Welcome back to Spot Starting.
For games on Friday August 19th 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:
Jake Peavy 42% / % (CWS) vs. TEX
Derek Lowe 42% / % (ATL) vs. ARI
Phil Hughes 38% / % (NYY) @ MIN
Kevin Correia 35% / % (PIT) vs. CIN
Brett Cecil 17% / % (TOR) @ OAK
Rich Harden 15% / % (OAK) vs. TOR
My Pick: Phil Hughes @ Twins
Alternate: Derek Lowe vs. DBacks
Deep League Special: Rich Harden vs. Jays
Hughes gets another start after a great effort in his last outing. 2 ER or fewer in 6 of his last 7 outings. Has not faced the Twins since ’09 which could be to his advantage.
Results from Wednesday 08.17.11:
Bud Norris vs. Cubs: W, 5 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 5 K, 3 BB…Not a great effort from Norris at all, but you’ll take the K/9 and the W.
Season Results (my pick only):
65 GS, 30-12, 402 IP, 379 H, 146 ER, 306 K, 111 BB, 3.27 ERA, 1.22 WHIP
