Video notes for the Pitching Planner

-- Brandon Webb has a timetable, but it is not a very good one ... get whatever you can for him now.
-- Ervin Santana and Erik Bedard are return ... again ... what to expect? who gets the boot?
-- All-Star break coming... how might that affect rotations?
-- First-half MVP pitchers? Zack Greinke, Josh Johnson, Justin Verlander and Jonathan Broxton
-- Rookie Ricky Romero ... the next big thing? ... leading into ...

Must-start, two-start pitcher
Ricky Romero TOR
(07/06) @ NYY Andy Pettitte
(07/11) @ BAL Rich J. Hill
69 percent owned 46 percent starting

Must-sit, two-start pitcher (owned in at least 50 percent)
(I don't see one owned in at least 50 percent of leagues this week that I would consider a must-sit, but here is a first-half ace that is dangerous right now...)
Jered Weaver ANA
(07/06) vs. TEX Kevin Millwood 
(07/12) vs. NYY CC Sabathia
97 percent owned 83 percent starting

Two-start sleepers (owned in less than 50 percent)
Kevin Correia SD
(07/07) @ ARI Doug Davis
(07/12) @ SF Barry Zito
49 percent owned 37 percent starting

Mike Hampton HOU
(07/06) vs. PIT Virgil Vasquez
(07/12) vs. WAS Jordan Zimmermann
15 percent owned 8 percent starting

Big one here is Santana... I think he is done being a top five Fantasy starter. Yeah, I said it. That is rare air for pitchers who actually have fresh arms. Santana looks run over and the Mets suck the biggest suck that ever sucked the suck suck.

Self explanatory injuries and demotions, save for Luke Scott. He showed Tuesday night he shouldn’t have been dropped. ... Also, dropped in 9 percent was Trevor Cahill. Give him a one-start pass. He is good and his hot streak was real.
