Shut down my SPs?

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Shut down my SPs?

Postby Stumanji » Thu Jun 25, 2009 8:40 am

Ok, I feel like I might be overthinking things here, but hear me out: I need a min of 18 IP for the week. I currently have 5.1 IP and am winning Saves (3 to 2), ERA (0.00 to 2.45), WHIP (0.38 to 0.95), and K/BB (9.00 to 4.25)--all those averages are pretty much unsustainable. I'm losing Wins (0 to 1), and Ks (9 to 17). I feel like it's going to be tough to keep these numbers up, so I'm thinking of just punting Wins and and Ks and only starting my sure-thing SPs (if that exists) to stay ahead in the other categories.

I have Cliff Lee @Pit, Smoltz @Was, Meche @Pit, CC @NYM, and Kershaw vs.Sea remaining this week. My RPs are Nathan, Rivera, Aardsma, Frasor, and Qualls. I could even bench Qualls and maybe Frasor.

He has Carpenter @NYM and Buehrle vs ChC remaining this week. Fuentes, Franklin, Wood are his RPs.

Is this a sound strategy or am I really thinking too hard about things. If you like where my head's at, which pitchers would you go with?


Thanks, Grey.

Those are all solid starts. I wouldn't pull any pitchers yet. Maybe on Saturday depending on where you're at then.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

The only ones I'm really worried about are Meche after his bed-shitting performance last time out (but it's the Bucs...) and Kershaw because his K/BB ratio (but it's the M's...).

I guess I'll just keep an eye on things.

Thanks.
