Video notes for Pitching Planner

-- Ben Sheets was scheduled to a two-start pitcher, but he walked off early Wednesday night. What to do?
-- There currently are a lot of aces on the two-start pitchers report. It is pretty timely in the crucial final week for Fantasy owners, right?
-- Freddy An. Garcia made a pretty nice return Wednesday and might be a two-start pitcher himself. He has to be a guy to trust, no?
-- Well, it finally happened -- probably too little, too late -- but David Price is here and might actually start now. Maybe even two starts.

Video notes for Pitching Planner

My notes this week for the Week 5 Pitching Planner videocast...

-- Geez, Ben Sheets way to let us down when we finally start to trust you ... returns next week as a two-start pitcher?
-- Josh Beckett, really dude?
-- Phil Hughes struggling, Ian Kennedy struggling and Hank Steinbrenner trying to jump the gun on Joba Chamberlain
-- Erik Bedard, John Lackey, Scott Kazmir, Matt Garza, Mike Hampton, Mark Mulder and Kevin Slowey nearing returns from the DL
-- Doug Davis might return May 9, which means Matt Scherzer's great start in Triple-A will buy D-Backs time
