I am going to break this week's Pitch & Ditch into two articles, partially due to the large number of Starting Pitchers owned in less than 50% of leagues that I feel are worth a shot, and partially due to my having tickets for 3 Tigers games this week. Now if only this heat wave would break, especially with a Thursday afternoon game coming up...not that I am complaining about getting to see the Tigers take on the Angels with Trout, Trumbo and Pujols all smacking the ball around.
Back in Motown after a 2000 mile trek to 5 ballparks out east, and the living is...hot and humid. Not really all that different from the East Coast. I've never been so hot as sitting in 106°/100% humidity conditions at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Be that as it may, it's time to look at who you can insert before the All-Star Break to help you get a leg up on the competition.
