A daily look back at my spot starters and a look forward at who I’m taking off the wire…

Yesterday’s Spot-Start

Koji Uehara – BAL, 6 2/3 IP, 8 K, 3 ER, 1 BB, 1.20 WHIP DECENT
Well, this ended up being a pretty good pick, but the bullpen is what hurt him, along with some errors. He pitched well and at sent down 14 in a row. But, some fielding problems and a bullpen that brought a bucket of gasoline to the mound, took care of his hard work. He’s been doing pretty good this year and his numbers definitely show it. I’m going to keep him on my teams.

Today’s Spot-Starters

I’m not picking up anybody for today. I’m actually picking somebody up that isn’t pitching until Saturday! Who is so special that I went that far ahead? Shairon Martis, the rookie SP for the Washington Nationals.

Even when I read that I think it’s a pretty lame idea, but he’s facing the D-Backs on his home mound and the D-Backs are awful on the road. They’re awful at home, but they are really awful on the road.
