Washington vs. Pittsburgh, 15 July 2006

Astacio, Snell ( 7:05 PM, FSNP, KDKA

Pedro Astacio (1-1, 5.19) vs. Ian Snell (8-6, 4.74).

I have a confession to make. I play in one fantasy league a year, and for the past several years I've occasionally grabbed bad pitchers who happen to be starting against the Pirates for spot starts. At first, this was a way of coping with being a Pirates fan - even if the team loses, I win!. I root for the Pirates to win, and if they don't, at least I get a decent consolation prize. But now, I just do it because it's a really good strategy. However, I couldn't muster the guts to grab Astacio today. Over the past several years, he's just been a terrible combination of unpredictable, injured and bad. The Bucs can win this one.
