After a weekend out at a bachelor party in Charleston, that means sitting down to put these starts together while also fighting off sleep at the same time. No commentary under the sections this week, but wanted to make sure I got the rankings and information out there for you to set your lineups.

  • Still predicting that the Padres are running a 6 man rotation, which would mean that we don’t get a 2 start week from Mr. Paddack who has reminded those who forgot that he’s a talented individual.
  • As of now, the Braves appear to be running a 4 man rotation this week, so, I ranked Dallas Keuchel above.
  • Marco Gonzales is ranked above, but that spot in the rotation is TBD still.
  • Jalen Beeks is ranked as a 2 start option, but the Rays are doing their normal opener/primary starter thing, so, we’ll see if he does get 2.

      Slowly, but surely executing my master strategy to rule the world with Pinky and Donkey Teeth.

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        Haha, or simply Pinky Teeth

        • B_Don

          B_Don says:

          Pinky Teeth and Brain_don

              First, it’s submitted. Second, you can always learn how to do the post recording editing and posting.

    How was your bachelor party?

    • B_Don

      B_Don says:

      It was a blast! Completely draining and we have to wait to record our podcasts this week until my voice returns, but TOTALLY worth it. Spent some time on the water at this Hyrdofly/tiki barge (1 bachelor party and 3 bachelorrete parties is a good ratio), lots of adult beverages, and tasty eats. Driving back yesterday after less than 4 hours of sleep was brutal tho, hah.

        Grey says:

        Haha, nice!

    Is there a way to see a ranking of which pitchers are projected for the most Quality Starts the rest of this season? If not do you have any thoughts on a top 5?
