12 team mixed, 5x5 roto league
have to decide on 9 pitchers each week.
I have 4 closers....should i just start them all?
Cordero 3 games vs. Phi, 3 vs. Cle (only closer with 6 games)
Bailey 4 at TB, 3 vs. Ariz
Downs 1 vs. CWS, 3 at Bos, 3 at Atl
Hoffman 1 vs. StL, 3 at Hou, 3 at Min
my starting options are as follows
Lincecum at SD (Correia)
Slowey vs. Mil (Suppan)
Bush at StL (Pineiro), at Min (Baker)
Wainwright vs. KC (Davies)
Nolasco vs. Ariz (Haren), vs. TB (Niemann)
Jd Weaver at LAD (Milton)
basically, i have to bench one pitcher.
I hate Bush on the road, but he has two starts and our league counts K's. We all know about Nolasco's struggles but he's at home twice and I feel a bunch of K's vs. the free swinging D-backs.
Lincecum is a lock as well as Wainwright at Busch. I love Slowey at home. Weaver is on fire right now and should not be benched.
Do I play russian roulette and pick one of the 4 closers to bench?
Do I bench Nolasco cause he has sucked? Do I bench Bush cause he's on the road?
I hate to do either because they both are my only two start options.
Basically, i'm torn.
what do you think?
I'd start Cordero, Downs and Hoffman for relievers. For starters, I'd start Lincecum, Slowey, Wainwright, Weaver, Nolasco and Bush. Bench Bailey.
