A quick look at my work available over at Baseball Prospectus this week.
- First up was the Starting Pitcher Value Picks piece in which I looked at Jason Hammel, who you might still have a chance to get after his domination against the Yankees. I also looked at the start of Chris Capuano and Joe Blanton (who proceeded to pitch a complete game shutout against Atlanta later that day… yes that was me back-patting).
- Next up, going live this morning, was the Weekly Planner piece which takes a look at the all the two-start pitchers for next week and decides who you should go with and who you should probably avoid. A couple of corrections are that Doug Fister will be in for Duane Below after his 4 shutout innings in a rehab start at AAA-Toledo. He slots above Jarrod Parker as the top AL Start for me. Meanwhile, Alex White appears to be the unnamed starter for Colorado, but I still don’t like him. As I mentioned in the comments, I’d rather wait and see with him.
- And finally, episode 2 came out for the The Towers of Power Fantasy Hour, a BP Fantasy Podcast. We discussed the utter decimation of third base over the last week, a similar implosion of closers around the league as well as the call-ups of Mike Trout and Bryce Harper.
