Video notes for Pitching Planner

-- What the heck is wrong with Brandon Webb and Carlos Zambrano? Don't they realize it is Fantasy crunch time?
-- September call-ups... can these guys make an impact? Emack yaps about Brandon Morrow and Jonathon Niese.
-- Uh, Emack, hello David Price ... where he at dog? You're looking foolish here, bro
-- You talked about trusting young pitchers... Tim Lincecum is pretty remarkable. You gotta trust this guy, right?

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 Pitching Planner

-- Carlos Zambrano hopes to return July 4. Should we start this guy this week?

-- Mark Mulder, Ian Kennedy, Josh Johnson, Adam Loewen and Mike Hampton are on rehab assignments. When are these guys expected to be back and is there any value here?

-- Calendar turns to July and which pitchers should Fantasy owners worry about being traded? C.C. Sabathia, Erik Bedard, A.J. Burnett, Aaron Harang, Bronson Arroyo and Greg Maddux.

-- The A's have a potential All-Star in Justin Duchscherer. Can he keep this up?

-- John Smoltz on DL, moving to bullpen

-- Two words, Max Scherzer
-- Cliff Lee and Joe Saunders are smoking hot
-- Scott Kazmir back this weekend (Hammel to bullpen?)
-- John Lackey coming back a little slower
-- Mark Mulder disappointing on rehab
