Reliable listings on probable pitchers?

Postby royce! » Thu Sep 10, 2009 4:00 pm

Anyone have any opinions on which sites are more or less accurate regarding probable pitchers? Both ESPN and CBS are often wrong and/or list pitchers in two contradictory spots (for example, ESPN recently had Burnett pitching on successive days). Both also often contradict with the official teams' listings on probable starters (another Burnett example- yanks official mlb site lists him as starting Saturday, and ESPN has Mitre starting Saturday). ESPN also often contradicts itself by listing different probables on the team schedule pages.

In a weekly h2h, this is pretty important information, but I guess it makes fbb all the more interesting.
14 team h2h, no in week changes, 7 x 7 (5x5 plus OBP and XBH, K/BB and Holds)

C- Martin
1B- Rizzo
2B- Pedroia
3B- Miggy
SS- Zobrist
IF- Cuddyer
OF- Heyward
OF- Joyce
OF- Ethier
OF- Kelly Johnson
UTIL- Berkman
BN- Dee Gordon
BN- Frazier
DL= Ajax


SP-Zimmermann
SP-Peavy
RP-Chapman
RP-Holland
RP-Bell
RP-A. Bailey
P-Ryu
P-Cobb
P-Odorizzi
BN-McCarthy
BN- Milone
BN-Wheeler
BN-Gausman

Not sure, I usually just use ESPN. But they are wrong sometimes.

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.

SPAM!


But the spammer did give me a chance to see this post and respond. Agreed that ESPN does do an adequate job. But they do miss the boat sometimes so I moved onto the MLB.com - They usually have a good list for the week @
http://mlb.mlb.com/news/probable_pitchers.jsp

Yahoo has a column too that covers it but is specific to 2 start pitchers in a week. But I don't have that link bookmarked.

Cheers!
thanks for reading, cws05nuts
