    What’s up with Howard and Suter tonight. Are both starters in name only or are either team going to run them out for 5+ innings if they pitch well?

    This is Suter’s first start in two years, so I wouldn’t expect him to hit 5 innings even if he’s cruising. No pitch count has been mentioned, but I wouldn’t put him past 80. Howard could potentially get in 5-6 innings if he all of a sudden is pitching like the prospect he is said to be, but a more realistic outcome is under 5 innings.

    Suter hasn’t thrown more than 45 pitches this season, so I wouldn’t expect more than 60 and that might be pushing it, unless they really do want to stretch him out. Howard threw 81 in his first start, but hasn’t gotten too close to that since. I think it’s been more about his work though, then any kind of pitch count. Still, though, being a young arm, I doubt they go overboard pushing him, and 80 seems like a realistic cap to put on him.

    Anyone worried about that weather for WAS vs PHI?!

    Hopefully we hear something before LOCK!

    DK’s hitters pricing tonight has me fuming… it basically forces one to take stabs at min price hitters or gamble with a SP2… mid-$3k options are few and very sketchy… you can do Tapia/Hilliard/Murphy, but there you burn two OF spots and play a contact 1B instead of power

    Near min… Gomes, Ben Gamel batting 5th and Dalbac batting 6th and eligible in two positions

    It’s a tough slate. You basically have to choose pitching or hitting. You’re not getting 2 aces and a primo stack without significant sacrifice, including taking lesser pieces of a stack.

    And to think Cole is only $10k…
