Pitching In: Week 9

There’s usually one pitching move you make each week that hits you hard over the head after the fact and makes you question your entire thinking process. For me that move was sitting Kyle Lohse in favor of A.J. Burnett. Luckily for me I had several other pitchers who had good weeks, so it didn’t affect the outcome, but those kinds of moves might decide your matchups more often than not. My advice: when faced with a decision between two pitchers who aren’t automatic starts, go with the recent numbers.

With that being said, here are the pitchers you can count on in Week 9:
