3U3D brought back the Mapes Fantasy Special with Travis Wood yesterday, plus a side of Clayton Richard. We’re still waiting to see the results, but here’s my pick for Thursday, September 13th.
Orioles “ace” Wei-Yin Chen has been their most reliable pitcher the entire season. The Rays are a great team pitching-wise, but still have their hitting woes. Chen threw 7 shutout innings against Tampa on August 4th and has a 3.72 ERA and 1.14 WHIP against the Rays in 19.1 innings this season. Chen will be completely focused and looking to bounce back after a distastrous start against the Yankees. Chen is owned in just 43% of Yahoo! leagues.
He doesn’t qualify for the Mapes Fantasy Special because he’s now over 50% owned, but if Brett Anderson (62% owned) is still available, go grab him! Now!
