cobb: SEA ranks #10 on the road (yes th #30 vs. righties tempting). last 30 days cobb with: 6.75/1.81. 4.55 siera (poor). if aSEA maybe a different story. SIT
zambrano: last 30 days: 5.02/1.81. Has a good away 3.06 era which should hold up well against pit, #25/#23. he COULD do fine. your call. I simply can't recommend a SP who has given up 57 BB in 106 IP. SIT.
Villanueva: has been pitching pretty much sterling. (did survive 5 BB in his last vs. CLE). I just would not run anybody @BOS. Fenway ranks #4 in runs scored. SIT
One metric I like to look at if I'm on the fence: WWVD (What Would Vegas Do?)
Vegas consensus has Cobb and TB -150/130 over the Ms, which is pretty strong. The other two are slight dogs.
Like you said Sea can't hit righties. So I think I'm going to roll the dice and stream Cobb, we shall see whappen...
All I care about is Ws, QS and Ks. I'm already dead in ratios so I don't care if a guy blows up, but if they have a chance to give me an accumulator this week, I'm in.
