Starting Pitcher Chart – October 3rd-5th, 2022

Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports

I started this in early-September last year and it seemed to be useful. The chart will include their performance over the last five starts, their opponent’s wOBA versus the pitcher’s handedness, and then my start/sit recommendation for 10-team, 12-team, and 15-team (or more) leagues.

These are general recommendations, and your league situation will carry more weight whether you are protecting ratios or chasing counting numbers. This is for standard 5×5 roto leagues. The thresholds for H2H starts are generally lower, especially in points leagues so I thought there would be more value focusing on roto.

Let’s go secure some titles!

Note: Pitchers recommended in 12/15 but not 10 doesn’t mean I wouldn’t start them in 10s, but rather that it’s a more open choice as opposed to a slam dunk.

Paul Sporer’s Baseball Chat – September 28th, 2022

Transcript is available!

1:01

Paul Sporer: Hey y’all! Just a week left in the regular season, can you believe it?!

1:01

Shifty manfred man: Hey Paul,

1:01

Paul Sporer: Hola!

1:02

MHII: How high are we taking Michael Harris next year? 2nd round?

1:04

Paul Sporer: He’s now a HR away from 20/20 and has only played 108 games! That said a .370 BABIP and 26% HR/FB rate are helping a lot and I worry that there won’t be any real regression assumed for him and he’ll go 2nd-3rd round pretty consistently. I love the talent and I’m a sucker power-speed, but I’ll probably fade the sky-high price for 2023

1:04

John: Pulled down a H2H Cats title this week.  Looking to next year, who is most likely to be real for 2023 – Brandon Drury, Jose Miranda (late May on) or Justin Steele?
