Cueto and the RCL Conundrum

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

Cueto and the RCL Conundrum

Postby bsa » Thu Jul 17, 2008 7:10 am

OK, As I write this I realize I have Cueto in two leagues and one of them is the RCL.
:!: :!: SO, let it be known at 9:52 AM EST, regardless of the advice given, I am not starting Cueto in the RCL tonight. :!:
The question is, in my other league I need to make a choice about starting Cueto or leaving him on the bench this week.
H2H league and my opponent has 7 ps (Dempster, Haren, FHernandez, Laffey, Lowe, Maine, Verlander) whereas I am looking at four (Cueto, Hudson, Lincee, and Shields) with three closers (Pap, Soria, Broxton).

Obviously if I bench Cueto based on his last outing versus the Mets (4.2 IP, 6 ER, 5 Ks)I would down to 3 starts and insert Rauch.
All three teams that my closers are on are only playing 3 games this week.

As to scoring it is the basic CBS point system (10 for wins, 10 for saves, 2 for IP, 1 for K, -.5 for HA, and -1 for ER)

Advice for my CBS H2H league would be appreciated.
Also, since some RCL read the forum and some read the blog I will post a shorter version under It's Now or Never!

Usually I'd say start him, but because of your situation, I'd bench him and go with Rauch.

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.
