-- Tim Wakefield and Joe Saunders had victories in their first start off the DL ... gotta trust them, right?

Video notes for the Pitching Planner

-- Pedro Martinez can be a winner, but I still hate pitchers who have had major shoulder surgery.
-- Another former ace heads back in for more shoulder surgery, Erik Bedard. And John Smoltz, shoulder surgery returnee, where is he headed?
-- Rookie starting pitchers filling up rotation spots this time of year, what's with the trend?
-- Young arms reaching their innings limits... that can affect Fantasy teams down the stretch, right?
