I'm in the championship round of my H2H league. Unfortunately, I'm losing.

The Categories are: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, Saves, ERA. WHIP, and K/9.

Here's the breakdown:

R HR RBI SB AVG SV ERA WHIP K/9 SCORE
76 23 73 6 .2576 9 2.440 0.976 10.247 6-3-0
64 19 72 17 .2703 5 2.910 1.275 10.347 3-6-0


As you can tell, I have stolen bases locked up, and a decent lead in batting average with five days to go. Obviously, I need to win 5 categories, so I have 2 strategies:

1) Bench all my starting pitchers, and hope that is enough to maintain my K/9 lead, while hoping to win HR's and RBI's (possibly runs I guess, though that looks a bit unlikely.

2) Take the risk and start my remaining starters, and hope it is enough to put ERA. and WHIP in play. If this blows my lead in K/9 though, and isn't enough to improve my ERA. and WHIP, than the best I can hope for is a tie.

My starters have already thrown 51.1 innings. The remaining starts are:

Bumgarner at SD
Sale vs. TB
Greinke at TEX
Price at CWS

I'm torn between letting them start or not. What do you guys think?

I'd go with 1...

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.
