Video notes for the Pitching Planner

-- Minor league seasons are ending, which means it's time to get starters back, or shut them down ... Are Jake Peavy, Dice-K Matsuzaka and Tim Hudson close?
-- Tim Wakefield and Joe Saunders had victories in their first start off the DL ... gotta trust them, right?
-- Johan Santana is out for the season. It is the time of the year to put your money on pitchers with something to play for... those working for contenders, especially if they team is hot down the stretch

Must-start, two-start pitcher
A.J. Burnett NYY
(09/01) @ BAL David Hernandez
(09/06) @ TOR Scott Richmond
97 percent owned 85 percent starting

Must-sit, two-start pitcher
Mike Pelfrey NYM
(09/01) @ COL Josh Fogg
(09/06) vs. CHC Randy Wells
62 percent owned 34 percent starting

Two-start sleepers
Anibal Sanchez FLA
(09/01) vs. ATL Javier Vazquez
(09/06) @ WAS Livan Hernandez
43 percent owned 28 percent starting

Trevor Cahill OAK
(09/01) vs. KC Kyle Davies
(09/06) vs. SEA Doug W. Fister
26 percent owned 12 percent starting

Don’t mess with the Johan... son of a! It’s the risk you take making trades this time of year, especially for players who are out of the race. You have to load on up guys with something to play for – especially with regard to pitchers.
