Thursday 8/4/11 Starter Stats - James McDonald - 7.0 Innings Pitched - 3 Strikeouts - Loss - 5.14 ERA - 0.57 WHIP
Starter Spreadsheet With Stats Online Here

Just going to update with the previous starters stats here from now on the rest of the baseball season, as I'm way behind on fantasy football as it is.

McDonald would have turned in a fine start here if three of the four hits he gave up didn't go for home runs.  He didn't walk anyone, and three strikeouts wouldn't be a problem if it came with good ERA and a win.

Quick columns for the rest of the year, just like it is here...

Wednesday's Recommended Starter - Ivan Nova - New York Yankees vs Los Angeles Angels - 7:05 PM ET - 39.5% Owned in ESPN Leagues

Nova has pitched a pair of gems since returning from the bullpen and seems to have taken over the fifth starter spot in the Yankee rotation back from Phil Hughes.  He's coming off a ten strikeout performance his last time out against the White Sox, and should be able to post good numbers against the Angels here as well.  The Angels offense has been poor all year and hasn't been very good recently either.  Nova will deliver a solid number of strikeouts here on the way to picking up a win here Wednesday night.
