Sunday Early MLB Looks: What Starting Pitchers Should Be on Today's Strikeout Watch?

I woke up this morning and thought about one thing. Gambling. It's what I do every day but today felt special for some reason. It felt so special that I decided we need a Strikeout Watch List to follow. Even though it's Sunday and one of these has never been created on a Sunday, I still feel like we need one. We deserve it.

Here's the thing, every time I post one of these, someone tweets me a ticket with all of the guys in a parlay. Like before the lineups are even released. I like the aggressiveness. I do. But that's now what this is all about. This is about looking at a fringe pitcher and finding a matchup where he could outperform the status quo. Sniper stuff. If you want to get wild, get wild. It's Sunday. Just know that you're turning a sniper mission into a kamikaze mission. That feels a bit crazy.

Remember, we need to see AT LEAST five of these batters in these lineups when they are released. If that happens, get ready to fire away. Be somebody today.
