Detroit has been rocking it but I usually like to start my stars. Tough call, I guess I would lean toward a sit. Can't hurt you but you can kick yourself later.

I hear ya.

I'd rather have a CG no-no on the bench rather than 3.1IP, 7ER starting. It could go either way. Game-time decision.

I'm starting him. I think he's proven that he can start against any lineup. It's rained all day here, not sure this game goes

He just shut out the Reds and the Braves, the latter on the road. Both teams have been a bit up and down the last couple of weeks but they are definitely lineups that can test a pitcher and he came through those giving up 3 hits over 17 innings. I'm keeping him in my lineup.

im starting him in multiple leagues tomor since the start just got pushed back.. that being said im not overly excited about him going against detroit but i believe he is a must start against all lineups at this time.. also im not crazy about playing my austin jackson and torri hunters against him so to me its a double edged sword

I'm starting him. He's a stud and I'm not leaving him on my bench. I'd only consider sitting pitchers at Coors.

The Tigers are great but are not above being taken down by a good pitcher. It already happened on one road trip this year.....Tiger bats went cold in Seattle then LA. Sure they just beatdown the Astros but who doesn't?

I am a Tiger fan and love that lineup but I will start Zimmermann against them today, for better or worse.
