pitchers to start for the weekend?

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

pitchers to start for the weekend?

Postby chenemy » Thu Aug 14, 2008 9:32 pm

Tomorrow:
Zambrano @ Fla
Josh Johnson v. ChC
Billingsley v. Mil
Saturday:
Baker v. Sea
Beckett v. Tor
Sunday:
Vazquez @ Oak

My opponent will be starting these for the remaining of the week
Fausto Carmona v. LAA
Harang v. StL
Bannister @ NYY

Current scores:

Now I've got a feeling that my opponent will blow the rest of the week up, but I'm trying to take the week 16-0 (he's last place team, I'm trying to get week1 bye)

If I'm going to beat him in IP, I'll have to make 4 starts out of my 6 available, and I prefer to sit Vazquez.

Currently I've got all 3 of my starters starting tomorrow, it ain't pretty because one of Big Z or JJ will probably pick up the loss and I'm not too confident with Billingsley vs Mil (don't know where that confidence went...)

The rest of the week looks good to me, but trying to maximize my wins so I could get a crack at 2nd or 1st place for the playoff bye. I'm 10 GB (16/week) but my remaining 2 matchups are against weak teams where as the top 2 have tough matchups, all against playoff teams.

OK, babbled on too far, so the question is, should I start all 3 tomorrow? Or sit 1 of them and hope for the best with Baker and Beckett?

I would not start Vazquez unless absolutely necessary. I'd go Big Z, Bills, Beckett and Baker. I wouldn't start JJ.

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.

Great, I'll also start a bunch of RP just so I really don't have to use Vazquez at all :P

btw, thanks Grey, my team has only lost once in the past 12 weeks thanks to your advice and went from dead last to 3rd over that span

Pena Baker and Iannette are the pieces that really upgraded my team and I wouldn't have coounted on them as much without coming here

this ended up being unnecessary when Harang blew up

Bannister is currently blowing it up too allowing 6 runs in 1 inning
