    Lester is earning his contract this year and he isn't even the cubs ace.

    Kershaw struggled at the beginning last year before absolutely dominating the second half.

    This is either pure sarcasm or the absolute greatest advice ever on this forum. Something tells me that someone only betting those games you listed would be up like 25 or 30 units so far this season but I'm too lazy to check and verify for certain.

    Peralta, allegedly. He just went on paternity leave. Pitching while pregnant might explain how awful he's been this spring - 7.50 ERA and counting...

    All of those guys should come around though except Greinke and maybe Wainwright. Only way Greinke would rediscover form is if the D-Backs only pitch him on the road.

    Greinke I feel you can blame 85% of his struggles to pitching in that ball park... His numbers on the road are solid

    I actually like Nelson a lot and agree he is Milwaukee's best pitcher. But I also agree he would make weak ace if Brewers designate him as such.
