So are you thinking about who to start tonight with the Championship in your grasp? Take a peek here at some of The Fantasy Man's recommendations....
These are SP's I'd start tonight, Thursday, September 25th, no matter what...no questions asked!
Scott Kazmir - Det stinks and Kazmir has pressure to perform
Roy Halladay - Halladay always kills the Yankees
Jon Lester - He's been outrageous this season
Rich Harden - Even more outrageous
Roy Oswalt - 2.57 ERA, 2 W, 18K in 21 IP in last 3 starts
Jake Peavy - Might not get a win but he provides all the other stats you need
Flip a Coin
These are the SP's who have potential to pitch a good game but also have the potential to bomb. This is where the championship is made....
Yovani Gallardo - Has top notch stuff but hasn't pitched all year
Kevin Slowey - He's been solid, great WHIP but last 3 starts have been inconsistent. However, he can easily whip out a 7 IP shut out with 8 K. Take out the 5 ER against TB last week and he's been super solid.
Gavin Floyd - Has the offense to get a win and has been solid all year but he's in the same boat as Slowey. Only 1 win in last 4 starts (but all quality starts)
Carl Pavano - a possibility to pick up a win with offense, has been pitching well but faces Halladay tonight so chances of a win are slim.
I Wouldn't Start!
The title here says it all. These guys are all super risky.....
Pedro - He's been bad lately without a lot of innings
Johnny Cueto - Faces Oswalt
Greg Maddux - Faces Peavy
Jorge De La Rosa
Good Luck Tonight!
