• Jonathon Niese threw seven shutout innings against the Marlins and now has five straight quality starts to go with a 1.82 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP. Two of those starts even came against the Cardinals and Braves, so it's not like he's been exploiting cellar-dwellars. I'm rather suspicious over the authenticity of his start, although he has improved over the last couple years. He's probably worth owning at this point, although I'd still like to see how he does against the Yankees in his next outing before we deem his turnaround legit or not.
