I went with Quintana, and the chicken won the gunfight yesterday, but I fielded a little league team in a long shot lineup and threw in Lyles who died in the first inning from a line drive comebacker from Pujols the Dominican Robot.

Thoughts on Travis Wood? Mets have a 25% K rate and a .288 wOBA vs L. Went through their main line up, looks like the starters post terrible numbers away vs L. As you cant tell by now I have trouble with pitchers. To me it’s like betting on a drunk cat throwing darts. He might score 501 on the first throw or he might poop on your desk and fall asleep. In any case I’d like to get your take on Travis. Thanks for the Creepy monologue this morning, it helps with 2 small game slates!
