    导出博客文章Remember last Thursday when we had a multitude of desirable starting options in each tier? Well, I hope you enjoyed it. Cheap Pistons Store . This Thursday, were back in the muck. Get ready to spend on bats, because pickings are slim on the pitching side.PitchingEliteOnly one hurler draws elite status for Thursdays slate: Bostons Drew Pomeranz, who has a road date with the Mariners. The left-hander has not fared well since joining the Red Sox, posting a 7.53 ERA over 14 1/3 frames. Still, we shouldnt get too caught up in the small sample. His strikeout rate remains intact (15 whiffs in 14 1/3 innings), and hes been the victim of some bad batted ball luck (.350 BABIP). Pitching in Safeco Field, against an average Mariners offense that whiffs 22 percent of the time (including a 24 percent whiff rate since the All-Star break), Pomeranz is one of the days better cash bets.SolidDrew Smyly has endured a frustrating season. While hes whiffing more than a better per inning and sports a 3.8 K/BB ratio that ranks 11th-best in the American League, he has a 5.29 ERA and is averaging a 48 Game Score over 20 starts. The good news is that on Thursday he gets a Royals team thats been dormant since the All-Star break, sporting a 63 wRC+, the second-worst mark in baseball. The downside is that the Royals make lots of contact, so its unlikely Smyly goes off for double-digit Ks here. On a normal day, the Rays lefty would probably get lost in the shuffle. Thats not the case today, as hes at least in the cash-game discussion.Jose Quintana is seemingly always in play, and thats the case again on Thursday with a road matchup against Detroit. The Tigers lineup features plenty of right-hander power, but the team has actually been below-average against lefties this season. Quintana, meanwhile, has surrendered one or zero runs in four of his last five starts and boasts a career-best 8.2 K/9. Im more than comfortable building my cash games around him on Thursday.If youre looking for an upside play for GPPs, Ian Kennedy finds himself in a great spot with a road tilt against Tampa Bay. The right-hander is fanning a batter per inning, and the Rays have struck out at a 24 percent clip against righties this year. Its true that Kennedy has struggled so far in the second half, but so have the Rays (87 wRC+).Matt Moore makes his debut for the San Francisco Giants on the road in Philadelphia. Moore will be more interesting when working at home in AT&T Park, but this matchup is still in play as the Phillies offense is pedestrian, though to be fair the return of Aaron Altherr has added a solid stick. Still, Moore is in play on a day when risk-free options are scant.Opposing Moore is Vince Velasquez, who draws a more imposing opponent in the San Francisco Giants. While the Giants are just barely above-average versus righties, they strike out less than any team in the National League (16.8 percent), which limits Velasquezs ceiling. His ceiling is also limited by the fact that hes pitched past the sixth inning just twice in 18 starts this season. Then again, the young righty still carries huge whiff potential into every start (10.0 K/9) and owns a 2.75 ERA since returning from the DL in late June, so theres still plenty to like here on a day when there arent any standout options.Jordan Zimmermann is set to rejoin Detroits starting rotation after being sidelined since early July with a neck strain. He threw just 78 pitches in his second rehab outing, so he figures to be capped at 90-100 in this one. That said, he gets mentioned here because hes squaring off against a White Sox offense thats worst in the AL against right-handed pitching (85 wRC+). Keep in mind, though, that Zimmerman owns a 5.6 K/9 on the year and whiffed more than three batters just once in his seven starts before going on the DL, so nearly all of his value comes from run prevention, not strikeouts.StreamersMike Clevinger did not fare well in three May starts, allowing 14 runs in 14 1/3rd innings. However, down in Triple-A Columbus, its a different story as hes fanned 97 in 93 innings. The Cleveland Indians righty is being summoned to face the Minnesota Twins, who have a decent amount of swing-and-miss potential in their lineup. Theres some risk here, but if youre looking for some extra whiffs, Clevinger is an available option.Bartolo Colon doesnt get many Ks, but he doesnt walk many batters, either. The veteran righty is set up to face the Yankees, who have done a poor job against right-handed pitching this season and now have even less thump after dealing Carlos Beltran at the trade deadline. Colon remains a free agent in 67 percent of leagues.Mike Leake has battled inconsistency this season, but he finds himself in a favorable spot on Thursday, facing a Reds team thats one of the worst in baseball against right-handed pitchers (84 wRC+). Hes a free agent in 62 percent of leagues.AvoidScott Kazmir is a quality hurler, and this is a short slate, but Im still not throwing him out there at Coors Field. Hes made only two starts there in his career, but they werent pretty (5.73 ERA, 1.55 WHIP).HittingAriel Miranda was dealt to the Mariners in the Wade Miley deadline deal, and hes making his first major league start on Thursday against the Red Sox. Talk about a tough draw. The 27-year-old lefty was decent at Triple-A this year, but his stuff might not translate well to the big leagues. And the Red Sox lineup, which mashes lefties, wont be very forgiving. Feel free to load up on the likes of Mookie Betts, Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts and Hanley Ramirez.The Baltimore Orioles acquired Wade Miley ostensibly to keep them in games while their offense slugged their way to a bunch of runs. This plan will be put to the test right away, as the southpaws debut for the Orioles will be against the equally powerful Texas Rangers in Camden Yards. Righty swingers give Miley far more trouble that lefties, especially in terms of homers. Ian Desmond, Jonathan Lucroy, Adrian Beltre and Ryan Rua, along with switch-hitters Jurickson Profar and Carlos Beltran, comprise a dangerous lineup.Brandon Finnegan struggles against right-handed hitters, and the Cardinals have plenty of quality right-handed bats who can do damage. Stephen Piscotty, Matt Holliday, Jhonny Peralta and Yadier Molina are all in play.The Coors Field game features Tyler Chatwood squaring off against the Dodgers. While Chatwood has been phenomenal on the road (1.30 ERA), hes been lit up at home (5.69 ERA). Coors bats are almost always expensive, but its worth trying to get some exposure here.Most likely to go yard: Carlos BeltranAgainst the homer-prone fly-baller Gallardo, look for Beltran to go yard for the first time in his new digs.Most likely to swipe a bag: Alcides EscobarSmyly has not had much success holding runners on this season, and the Royals can take advantage. Escobar is the favorite to pilfer one here. Pistons Jerseys Online . Malkin got tangled up with Detroits Luke Glendening early in the third period and his left skate took the brunt of collision with the boards behind Pittsburghs net. Authentic Pistons Jerseys . The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. . "Thank you for the warm welcome," Beckham said on an 80-degree February morning. In this case, it was soccer weather. The sport moved a step closer to returning to South Florida on Wednesday, when Beckham confirmed he has exercised his option to purchase a Major League Soccer expansion franchise in Miami. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was knocked out of Sundays home opener against the Miami Dolphins with 4 minutes, 20 seconds remaining in the second quarter after taking a big hit from Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso and landing hard on his right throwing shoulder.The Patriots did not provide an update on Garoppolos status after their 31-24 win. However, according to ESPN sources and multiple reports, Garoppolo suffered a sprained AC joint and will be assessed day-to-day.It may be a long shot, but the Patriots have not given up hope that Garoppolo can play Thursday against the Houston Texans, a team source told ESPNs Adam Schefter.Comcast SportsNet first reported that Garoppolo had injured his AC joint.Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said Monday morning that the team has yet to make a decision on how it will proceed at quarterback.Im not sure exactly what the situation is going to be. I think a lot of that will be determined later today relative to Jimmys whole situation and what its going to be, McDaniels said on sports radio WEEIs Kirk & Callahan Show. Im sure if he cant play or back up, then well be going through that process today....?Its a short week. Were going to have work hard to get somebody ready to go in case that does happen. If that situation does come up, well have somebody ready to roll.After facing the Texans on Thursday, the Patriots?play the Buffalo Bills in Week 4 before?Tom Brady is eligible to return in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.He came out of the pocket, and I just went and got after him. I think he just landed on his shoulder, Alonso said. It was just one of those like youve seen happen with [Tony] Romo, [Aaron] Rodgers.Rookie Jacoby Brissett, the third-round pick from NC State (91st overall), replaced Garoppolo. Players were already rallying around Brissett in the locker room after the game in preparation for Thursdays game against the Texans.Hes handled himself well. He comes in, he works hard, hes a good kid, wide receiver Julian Edelman?said. Im excitted to see this week and how we prepare together, and get ready for the Houston Texans. Womens Pistons Jerseys. Added coach Bill Belichick: Hes been working for this for a long time, all the way back into the spring, all the way through training camp. Hes gotten a lot of reps.Entering in place of Garoppolo on Sunday, Brissett finished 6-of-9 for 92 yards with two sacks, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions.He did a good job -- pressure situation, played two and a half quarters and did a good job for us, Belichick said.Garoppolo initially attempted to play through the injury before kneeling on one knee after absorbing the hit. The crowd chanted: Jimmy! Jimmy! Jimmy! as he appeared to be in considerable pain. He walked slowly to the locker room under his own power.When reporters arrived in the locker room after the game, Garoppolos chair was folded up at his locker. He had already departed.I know Jimmy has worked so hard to get himself ready to go and put himself in great position to seize his moment, so to speak, and its tough to see that, said special-teams captain Matthew Slater. So you really feel for the guy.Garoppolo had been on fire, leading the Patriots to touchdowns on their first three possessions as they took a 21-0 lead. He was 18-of-27 for 234 yards and 3 touchdowns at the time of the injury.The teams emergency quarterback likely would have been Edelman, who was a quarterback at Kent State before switching to receiver when the Patriots drafted him in the seventh round in 2009.The Patriots depth at quarterback was a notable topic entering the season, with four-time Super Bowl champion Brady serving a four-game suspension to open the season as part of the NFLs Deflategate penalties. The Patriots didnt bring a fourth quarterback to training camp and didnt sign a quarterback to their practice squad.Asked about the teams plans at quarterback last week, Belichick said, Well do whatever we think is best for the team.
