Facing The Giants and Twins

As I suggested before the season, spot-starting pitchers against the Giants and Twins looks like a viable fantasy strategy for '08.  Indeed, these two clubs have the worst offenses in their respective leagues on the young season.  The Twins are due for some improvement, but they'll still have a lot of easy outs.

Below are the starting pitchers opposing these two clubs in upcoming games. 

Facing the Twins:

  • Jamie Shields on Wednesday (obviously unavailable)
  • Jason Hammel on Thursday (solid spot-start candidate)
  • Cliff Lee on Friday (definitely work a pickup, for this start and beyond)
  • Jake Westbrook on Saturday (also worthy)
  • Paul Byrd on Sunday (questionable pickup)

Facing the Giants:

  • Brandon Webb on Wednesday (obviously unavailable)
  • Todd Wellemeyer on Friday (intriguing spot-start; has 20 Ks in 18 IP)
  • Joel Pineiro on Saturday (questionable pickup)
  • Braden Looper on Sunday (probably worthy)
  • Micah Owings on Monday (probably unavailable in your league)
