Brandon Wood... Emack! Why isn’t he playing???

Holliday, Matt LF OAK

Volstad, Chris SP FLA

Come on guys... that was just ridiculous... Volstad has been great but a young pitcher for a struggling stud hitter? Rookie.

 

 

Sabathia, CC SP NYY

Rodriguez, Alex 3B NYY

Hey, look at there... a struggling veteran SP for a superstar coming off the DL... that’s a trade I can dig.

Video notes for the pitching planner

-- The top three ranked players in Rotisserie rankings through Wednesday on CBSSports.com are Zack Greinke, Dan Haren and Johan Santana... Chad Billingsley is No. 5 and Yovani Gallardo is No. 7. Emack, I thought you said pitching isn't as important as hitting in Roto?!
-- The Tigers are having a revival this year. Even Justin Verlander pitched well his last time out.
-- Street closing again already? Emack, you're a genius!

Change of the week:
Phil Hughes for Chien-Ming Wang. We could have gone with Street again, but Hughes was just so darn dominant, he could cause more changes for the Yankees... which are...

Must-start two-start pitcher
Francisco Liriano MIN (0-4, 6.04)
(05/04) @ DET Edwin Jackson
(05/09) vs. SEA Felix Hernandez
95 percent owned 60 percent starting

Must-sit two-start pitcher
Paul Maholm PIT
(05/04) vs. MIL Yovani Gallardo
(05/09) @ NYM Livan Hernandez
80 percent owned 56 percent starting

Two-start sleepers
Sean Marshall CHC
(05/05) vs. SF Jonathan O. Sanchez
(05/10) @ MIL Jeff Suppan
42 percent owned 27 percent starting

Doug Davis ARI
(05/04) @ LA Eric Stults
(05/09) vs. WAS Scott Olsen
33 percent owned 20 percent starting
