3 Hrs Kansas City Royals
Jeremy Guthrie took a second straight loss after allowing six runs in five innings Monday against the Astros.
Well, that's disappointing. Guthrie allowed seven homers in his first seven starts, going 5-0 with a 2.28 ERA. In his last two, he's allowed six homers, while also striking out just two batters and walking six. Not that Guthrie was ever likely to maintain an ERA in the low-2.00s, but he has picked a surprising time to come apart, facing the dregs of the AL West (it was the Angels last time out). Mixed leaguers may want to move on, if not now then after his home start against the Angels this weekend.

I've been sick. So sick that I was in the hospital for three days. I'm feeling better now, but apparently my brain is still a bit scrambled. Just check out some of the crazy bids I placed this week in the free agent pool. TOUT WARS (15 team mixed): As you know, I've been sick [...]

Jeremy Guthrie tossed the first shutout of his career as the Royals beat the White Sox 2-0 on Saturday.
Guthrie has pitched more than 1,200 innings in the major leagues but had never blanked a team for nine frames until Saturday night. He scattered four hits, struck out three and issued just one walk while moving to 4-0 with a 2.40 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. The shine should wear off eventually, but he's a must-start right now in fantasy leagues.
