    I know shoemaker is scary but would you consider rolling him out today? Had a 2 start Lester that just got wiped for this week.

  2. Crenshaw says:

    Hey Nick! Should we start Fried today @COL?

  3. Jim says:

    Any reason Holland is so low? Home matchup and he hasn’t pitched too poorly.

  4. Ben says:

    When do you think Soroka is called back up? Looked good in his last minor league start.

  5. theKraken says:

    Who is John Means haha?

  6. John Cook says:

    Nick – thanks again for all the work you put in here! Thoughts on dropping Marco Gonzales for Merrill? 10 Team, 3 Keeper, Gonzales is my lowest guy on this list.

    Any thoughts on starting Gibson today against the Mets? He got messed up against a pretty terrible offense in the Royals last time out, so really don’t know if I want him out there.
