Just wanted to start a thread for us to track potentially good pitching matchups for next week. This is with an eye towards h2h formats (h/t to mrcar) - and for pitchers that may be available on the wire. I'll comb through schedules and start posting some stuff in a little bit. Feel free to jump in.

How about... Tim Wakefield?

vs. Tor, likely 9/12: Wakefield's allowed 3 ER or fewer in his last 4 starts. Going back further? 3 ER or fewer in 13 of his last 15 starts. Or, only 5 times this season if you really want to get crazy. I don't know who's pitching for the Jays this game, but I looked it up enough to know that it's not Halladay or Burnett.

As Grey's already pointed a bunch, Randy Wolf is scheduled to start against the Pirates this tuesday. That should give hi 2 starts next week - but with the 2nd coming against the Cubs. This time at home. Can he duplicate the magic he had at Wrigley? If he dazzles on Tuesday (even though it's against the lowly Bucs), might be worth a gamble. Unless (again - h2h strategy) you really need to protect your ERA/WHIP by the end of the week.

It's not in PETCO, but you'd start just about anyone against SD, wouldn't you?

Good idea, I'd say.

Speaking of Petco.. if he's not already owned, Hiroki Kuroda will be pitching in Petco next week.

One could do worse than 2 starts from Nick Blackburn (if available) next week. Home against KC, then @ Baltimore.

I'm looking at the possibility of Vincente Padilla at SAFECO Tuesday. It'll be the 1st start back from DL, but the Mariners blow big time. May hedge that bet with Nippert (if Padilla can't go, Nippert would and he was solid vs. Mariners earlier this week).

Thoughts on that approach?

Big Mike

Anyone against the Mariners has possibility, but those guys are the bottom of the barrel. It's a risky spot start that could easily turn into a Cleveland Streamer.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

"Cleveland Streamer"?
