Starting Pitchers Ever since I decided to spend heavy on pitching about a month ago, I’ve had much more success with my daily salary cap contests. Today I’m taking the 6th and 7th most expensive starting pitcher options. Hiroki Kuroda – @ the Mets – $8,900 Since the beginning of 2012, Kuroda has the 12th best ERA and is tied for the second highest win total. He’s good.
