Video notes for Pitching Planner

-- Cubs have some injury woes. Big Z, Rich Harden... Are these guys toast for Fantasy purposes?
-- Another contender, the Angels, have some struggling starters. They are slotting Dustin Moseley in the rotation and moving back Jered Weaver. Are these guys in operation shutdown with the big lead in their division?
-- OK, we have some September call-ups making mess of rotations, are there some more on the way? Phil Hughes/Ian Kennedy/Price graphic
-- Who are the No. 5 starters for the Mets and Red Sox? Bartolo Colon graphic

Video notes for Pitching Planner

-- Paul Byrd traded to the Red Sox. Is this a move because they fear the worst with Tim Wakefield?
-- David Price is not here Aug. 1 like you said. He has moved up to Triple-A but got beat up, what's up with that?
-- John Maine returned with five solid innings. Could the Mets really consider using him, Oliver Perez or Mike Pelfrey in the bullpen?
-- Who are some of the next pitchers to return from injury that we can pick up? Phil Hughes. Adam Wainwright. Joba Chamberlain. Carl Pavano. Andrew Miller. Bartolo Colon.

Video notes for Pitching Planner

-- There are no two-start pitchers. What do we do to set our lineups for the short Fantasy Week 16 (July 17-20)
 

-- Rich Harden dealt to Cubs, CC Sabathia dealt to Brewers ... which pitcher will have a bigger impact in the second half?
-- What are the A's going to do to replace Rich Harden? Sean Gallagher for now -- with red-hot Dallas Braden waiting in long relief -- but what about prospects Gio Gonzalez, Trevor Cahill and Brett Anderson?
-- Who are the next big starting pitchers to go? A.J. Burnett and Erik Bedard ... it looks like it could be more AL to NL


-- Red Sox reshuffle with Justin Masterson moving to relief. Do we jump on Clay Buchholz or is he merely holding the spot for Bartolo Colon (back)?
-- The Marlins are reworking their rotation, slotting Josh Johnson and Chris Volstad and perhaps getting Anibal Sanchez back July 28.
-- Some other second-half returnees: Adam Wainwright, Brad Penny, Fausto Carmona, Chris R. Young, Chien-Ming Wang, Phil Hughes, Ian Kennedy, Jason Schmidt, Mike Hampton, Carl Pavano, Chris Carpenter, Sergio Mitre, Orlando Hernandez, Kelvim Escobar

Video notes for the Pitching Planner

An outline of the topics for the Week 12 Pitching Planner video:

-- More injury woes for the Braves as Tom Glavine hits the DL and Jair Jurrjens tweaks his ankle ... Charlie Morton gets the call.
-- Dice-K is working his way back, what is the timetable and the status of Justin Masterson
-- Brandon Morrow earned his first save in place of J.J. Putz (elbow). Putz has struggled, can Morrow take over?
-- Jeremy Bonderman and Jake Westbrook are out for the year, is there value in their replacements?

Back to work...

The games started late last week and I was able to catch three games in four days: Marlins-O's on Thursday in Fort Lauderdale, Cardinals-Mets on Friday in Port St. Lucie and Twins-Red Sox in Fort Myers on Sunday. A lot of driving. This week it will be all Fort Lauderdale, all the time... Cards-O's on Tuesday, Marlins-O's on Wednesday, Red Sox-O's on Friday and Mets-O's on Saturday. Busy week.

Mets-Braves on SNY right now. Will have that going as I catch up on the weekend news I missed while driving the highways of South Florida.

A few notes from the Red Sox-Twins on Sunday:

-- Big Papi and Manny look like they are in good shape. I was expecting them to have a lazy winter after a title. They look as motivated as ever, especially Manny amid a potential walk year.

-- Clay Buchholz was rocked, while Tim Wakefield was solid. That is significant because Bartolo Colon is now in the fold and he could be someone the Red Sox go with over Buchholz, while Curt Schilling (shoulder) is out. Watch Buchholz closely at this point. I was planning on putting him as a decliner in the Stockwatch this week even before his performance. If Colon is healthy, the Red Sox wouldn't hestitate to open Buchholz in the minors, I'd assume.

-- Denard Span is more live in the center field mix for the Twins than you might think.

-- Might this be Jason Kubel's year? Perhaps, but I have thought that for years.

-- Stephen King is a scary dude. I would think homeless person if I didn't know he was famous and real rich.

Also, a leftover from the Mets-Cardinals on Friday:

Orlando Hernandez is really behind at this point and Mike Pelfrey is looking strong in the fifth starter's competition. I definitely can see El Duque opening on the DL -- especially since the Mets won't need a No. 5 starter until March 12.

"I am not feeling 100 percent," El Duque said Friday, dealing with a bunion problem on his foot and a neck strain. A reporter wished him luck in his recovery and he responded with a smile: "Thanks, I am going to need it."

Consider Pelfrey another riser and El Duque another faller.

Emack.
