Brandon McCarthy:  9 IP 4 H 0 ER 0 BB 8 K with an ERA of 1.90.  Sorry I can't think of any other starting pitcher whose numbers IMRPROVED when traded from the NL to the AL East.
Dallas Keuchel:  8 IP 7 H 3 ER 0 BB 5 K with an ERA of 3.12.  During your draft this past spring, if you would have taken all Houston Astros and Chicago Cubs starters than you would have been in first place in the pitching categories. 
David Price:  8 IP 1 H 0 ER 0 BB 9 K with an ERA of 3.00.  Gives up one hit and loses.  What the hell is going on today?
Alex Cobb:  7 IP 2 H 0 ER 2 BB 6 K with an ERA of 3.01.  When you look at Cobb's numbers from the last two seasons, he is pitching like a fantasy baseball ace.
Kenny Vargas:  3/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .316.  All right we will see where this takes us.
Corey Kluber:  7 IP 6 H 3 ER 4 BB 8 K with an ERA of 2.46.  On a day where pitching dominated, Kluber got hit around a bit.  Well as hit around as arguably the best pitcher in the AL this season can get.
Phil Hughes:  7 IP 5 H 1 ER 0 BB 8 K with an ERA of 3.65.  Told you to draft Hughes.  And Alex Cobb.  And Ian Kennedy.  And unfortunately I didn't tell you to draft Corey Kluber.  We can't all be perfect.
Matt Shoemaker:  7.2 IP 1 H 0 ER 1 BB 9 K with an ERA of 3.56.  I guess all the starting pitchers got together before the game and said the would not give up any runs.  Shoemaker has very solid K stuff and is a good Garrett Richards replacement for the rest of the way.  Make the add.
Tyson Ross:  8 IP 4 H 2 ER 2 BB 8 K with an ERA of 2.68.  Now has 170 K's in 174.2 innings.  Had done a sleeper post on Ross in March.  Yeah that was a good article.
Clayton Kershaw:  8 IP 3 H 1 ER 2 BB 10 K with an ERA of 1.82.  There has to have been some sort of record last night regarding how few runs the collective starters gave up.  Ridiculous.  By the way do you remember when there was a debate between Kershaw and Justin Verlander regarding who was the best starter in fantasy baseball?  Crazy that this was only two seasons ago.
