Starting this one off with multiple apologies. One apology for the lack of a Monday column. Decided to hang out late at a Memorial Day BBQ on Sunday night, so took Memorial Day off. This is probably going to be something I do with holidays most of the time, though with more notice in the future. Usually going to miss the day after the holiday, as I write my columns the night before.
The second apology, is to all those who went with Vance Worley on Sunday night. He cost me ERA and WHIP in my week eight matchup on Sunday night, and I'm sure some of you readers got bit as well. I had no reason to think he'd be bad here but he just didn't have his control on Sunday night. Hopefully you had also played Dempster, who delivered a fully solid start in all aspects while grabbing a win. If you were in a deep league and went with Guillermo Moscoso, the ERA wasn't pretty, but the WHIP was good and he picked up a win for you.
Starting week nine here late on Tuesday. Today's recommended pitcher that's available in at least fifty percent of leagues is coming up...
