SP question to end Finals!

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

SP question to end Finals!

Postby shill » Tue Oct 02, 2012 9:09 am

Give me a little help here. See the scoring for SPs in my ESPN league below. My finals match up ends tomorrow. I am currently up 761-721. My opponent has used all his starts, I have 5 left. I have some really good starts left, but I don't want one of my normally really good SPs to throw a stinker and get my opponent back in the race. Here is who I have left that I could start. Do I sit Gio tonight and just see how things shake out for the last day tomorrow or start him and depend on my other 4 guys if he blows it? How do you play this out? 40 sounds like a big lead with 2 days left, but consider one of my SPs (who I did sit thank goodness) Buchholz scored a -22 last night with these scoring settings, so anything can happen!

Tues - Gio vs Phi (Rosenberg)
Wed - Kershaw vs SF (Vogelsong), T Wood vs Hou (Gonzalez), H Bailey vs Stl (Wainwright), Morrow vs Min (Diamond)

Well the Nationals just made part of my decision for me, they are sitting Gio tonight. With that said, what would be you thinking heading into tomorrow with the guys I have left?

I'd sit Morrow, Bailey and Wood if you're comfortably in the lead... If you need the starts, I'd start them Morrow, Wood, Bailey... In that order... I'd try not to start any of them though... Doesn't seem like you have any reason to...

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.

Well since my opponent has no starts left, its just my hitters and RPs against his! Yesterday my guys actually extended my lead from 40 points up to 49 going into today, the last day. I think that means I am most certainly going to sit all my SPs, sit back, and enjoy my 2nd championship of the year!
