6/10 probables for daily leagues

This is my first posting for strictly daily leagues on this site. I strongly believe that daily line-up change leagues are going by the wayside and most leagues are weekly line-up leagues. So I won't invest too much time into these posts. There will be no mention of no brainer starters and no brainer bums. I will pick 6-8 pitchers in these hopefully daily posts that would be considered on the fence guys.

For Thursday 6/10
Scott Baker vs. Bruce Chen-Scott Baker has not performed so well this season but over his last couple starts he has shown some promising trends including keeping his walk rate down. He still doesn't strike out very many but has a very favorable match-up at home against KC who he has had a lot of success against in his career. Scott Baker is a nice starter for tomorrow.

Trevor Cahill vs. Ervin Santana-Cahill has been quite intriguing this season. After posting solid minor league numbers in his 2+ years in the minors he struggled last season. It appears he has turned that around. With a weakened Angel offense he is a nice start tomorrow. He does have a tough match-up however, against the resurgent Santana. Don't be surprised if there is little, if any run support.

Brett Cecil @ Wade Davis-Most night's in daily leagues any Blue Jay will be a nice start. The Jays usually provide a ton of run support and against the struggling Wade Davis (Don't start Wade) they will have the opportunity to keep up that trend. As good as Cecil has been so far his numbers on the road are even better than they are at home. Pick him up, start him, and keep him. This kid is a budding star.

Jamie Moyer vs. Anibal Sanchez-Moyer has been Red Hot lately (or at least as hot as a 47 year old can get) and the Phillies seem to be picking it up again offensively. Moyer has excellent career numbers against the Marlins and for now he looks like a very good play. Of course don't expect a ton of k's here. Stay away from Sanchez

Max Scherzer vs. John Danks -Scherzer is struggling mightily and has a tough match-up against Danks. He looked really really good 2 outings ago but then regressed against the lowly Royals. Do not start him against the Sox.

As always feel free to ask questions and make comments.
