Hello Grinders. We have a nine-game main slate and thankfully we don’t have to deal with Coors Field on the main slate. I’ll give some of my thoughts for those of you playing the full slate over on Yahoo and how I may approach that format since you’ll have the afternoon games included. Let’s dive in!

Question 1: What Do We Do At Pitching?

Let me just stop and say, “Yuck!” This slate is pretty gross from a pitching standpoint. The high end is not very appealing, the mid-tier is yucky, and the low end has YOLO written all over it. Let’s start bucketing these pitchers into tiers to see what we’re working with and if we can narrow down our player pool:

Tier 1 – We Three Kings
Mike Clevinger vs Yankees
Zack Wheeler vs Royals
Matt Boyd vs Rays
