Spot Starts This Week

How about some spot start candidates for the week?


  • Ian Snell vs. Nationals.  Snell is coming off a promising 9 K effort, and he faces the worst offense in baseball.  Time for him to start a roll.
  • Vicente Padilla vs. Royals.  Padilla's peripherals aren't too bad this year.


  • Tom Gorzelanny vs. Nationals.  Gorz hasn't had a quality start in a month, so this is a risky one.
  • Eric Hurley vs. Royals.  It's no accident that the Rangers picked this game for his Major League debut.  He's struggled with the longball in Triple A but could get you some Ks.
  • Hiroki Kuroda vs. Padres.  He may be owned based on his 11 K shutout masterpiece against the Cubs last time out.


  • Doug Davis vs. Royals.  He's been erratic, but hey, the Royals are a bunch of babies.
  • Jeremy Sowers vs. Padres.  He seems to have Triple A under control.  I might try it.


  • Can't find a good one for you here.


  • Jarrod Washburn vs. Nationals.  Pretty risky, but he did beat the Yankees on May 25th.  OK, I'm reaching.  You could also start Washburn's opponent, Tim Redding, in a battle of crappy offenses.
  • Micah Owings vs. Royals.  Perfect time to snap out of his funk, but then again he couldn't beat the Nats on May 30th.
