Video notes for the pitching planner

-- The top three ranked players in Rotisserie rankings through Wednesday on CBSSports.com are Zack Greinke, Dan Haren and Johan Santana... Chad Billingsley is No. 5 and Yovani Gallardo is No. 7. Emack, I thought you said pitching isn't as important as hitting in Roto?!
-- The Tigers are having a revival this year. Even Justin Verlander pitched well his last time out.
-- Street closing again already? Emack, you're a genius!

Change of the week:
Phil Hughes for Chien-Ming Wang. We could have gone with Street again, but Hughes was just so darn dominant, he could cause more changes for the Yankees... which are...

Must-start two-start pitcher
Francisco Liriano MIN (0-4, 6.04)
(05/04) @ DET Edwin Jackson
(05/09) vs. SEA Felix Hernandez
95 percent owned 60 percent starting

Must-sit two-start pitcher
Paul Maholm PIT

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 Pitching Planner

-- Carlos Zambrano has a sore shoulder, uh oh. What are Fantasy owners and the Cubs to do?
-- Mike Gonzalez back as a closer for Braves ... emerging closers in he and Brandon Morrow
-- Chien-Ming Wang is out. Dan Giese for now. Perhaps Sidney Ponson and Ian Kennedy in early July and Phil Hughes in late July
-- Francisco Liriano will be back soon for the Twins. Which lefty will be better in the second half, The Franchise or Price?

Pitching Planner video notes

Here are my items for discussion on the Pitching Planner video for Week 6 ...

-- John Smoltz on DL, moving to bullpen
-- Others affected: ouch for Rafael Soriano, hello Jo-Jo Reyes, Chuck James and perhaps Mike Hampton
-- Phil Hughes to the DL ... who replaces him? NOT JOBA! (Kei Igawa, Darrell Rasner?)
-- 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

Two-starter to go with
Max Scherzer ARI
(05/05) vs. PHI Jamie Moyer 
(05/10) @ CHC Jason Marquis 
65 percent owned 30 percent starting

Two-starter to sit
Oliver Perez NYM
(05/05) @ LA Chad Billingsley 
(05/11) vs. CIN Aaron Harang 
94 percent owned 76 percent starting

Two-start sleepers
Tim Wakefield BOS
(05/06) @ DET Nate Robertson 
(05/11) @ MIN Nick Blackburn 
43 percent owned 27 percent starting

Jeff Suppan MIL 
(05/06) @ FLA Scott Olsen 
(05/11) vs. STL Braden Looper 
29 percent owned 16 percent started

Ubaldo Jimenez COL
(05/05) vs. STL Joel Pineiro
(05/10) @ SD Greg Maddux 
39 percent owned 15 percent starting

Yeah, I know Suppan just got beat up.... but, I think he rebounds.
