Start Porcello?

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

Start Porcello?

Postby Hommocker » Thu Apr 09, 2009 6:50 am

I've got a 10 start max and am scheduled for 11.

Should I sit:

Porcello @ Toronto - seems to be a coin flip for a young pitcher in his first start. Sometimes he gets shelled. Sometimes no one knows how to hit him

Cain vs. Milwaukee - Milwaukee has had some success against him, but they don't dominate him or anything

Cueto vs. Pittsburgh - Cueto just wasn't that good last year

Cain seems like a lock for a start, but I'm on the fence between Porcello and Cueto.

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.

Would you sit Porcello even in a regular 12 team mixed league?

Would you say the same thing for James McDonald tomorrow?... meaning: start him or bench him?

I'm excited to start McDonald in the league I own him in.

Think I'd be better off dumping Porcello for McDonald? He's in the weaker league and a weak division. I s'pose I should wait to see how his start goes.
