Facing The Giants and Twins

The Giants and Twins are still the worst-hitting teams in each league, in my opinion.  The Nationals and Padres are giving the Giants a run for their money though.  Anyway here are some spot starters to consider this week.


  • Chad Gaudin vs. Twins.  His peripherals aren't too bad so far; I'd consider it.
  • Greg Maddux vs. Giants.  He was bombed last time out but I'd still try it.


  • Greg Smith vs. Twins.  Not too jazzed with his numbers; this one's a bit risky.


  • Ryan Dempster vs. Nationals.  Definitely a low BABIP fluke but I'd still probably start him.
  • Randy Johnson vs. Padres.  I think he'll be pretty good once he shakes off the rust.


  • Micah Owings vs. Padres.  You'd have to be in a pretty shallow league for Owings to be available.
  • Matt Belisle vs. Giants.  Hmmm, you'd have to be fairly desperate.


  • Ted Lilly vs. Nationals.  First see how he looks against the Mets today.
  • Vicente Padilla vs. Twins.  A worthy spot-start.
  • Edinson Volquez vs. Giants.  I'd definitely do it.
