Desperate last minute...championship

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

Re: Desperate last minute...championship - sorry for length

This is the ultimate question regarding my team...

It's the closest championship I've ever been in. Tied 5-5 going into Sunday's games. He has the tiebreaker, so I need to win.

Cats:
BA - Up .300 to .2952
HR - Up 13-6
RBI - Up 39-29
Runs - Down 40-42
SB - Down 4-5
K - Down 65-111
ERA - Up 4.7571 to 5.00
WHIP - Down 1.4571 to 1.3889
W - Down 6-7
Saves - Up 6-3

As you can infer, he is streaming pitchers while I trot out there my usual pitching staff (Morrow, Liriano and Kazmir's 1st starts this week killed me). A bunch of these cats are pretty tight. Ha. My maturity level is low. Anyway...

My question is two-fold regarding my pitchers and then hitters:

Do I pitch my RP and hope that no one blows up in their outing, or do I start Morrow, Liriano and/or Scott Lewis in case my RP do have a bad outing? Also, if they have good starts, I can get closer in WHIP.

My staff is as follows:
Joey Devine, Chad Qualls, Matt Lindstrom, Carlos Marmol, Jason Motte, Jensen Lewis, Frank Francisco, Grant Balfour if I dont start the SPs

His pitchers tomorrow are: BRandon Duckworth, Dirk Hayhurst, Dice-K, Seth McClung, Jamie Moyer, James Parr, Scott Richmond and Chris Waters.
As for my hitters, I am starting Brett Gardner, Rajai Davis, Nyjer Morgan, Eugenio Velez since they have been hot lately and can steal bases. Is this a smart move? It would wind up sending Vernon Wells and BJ Upton to the bench. My power hitters would be Taylor Teagarden/Victor Martinez at C, Carlos pena at 1b, A-Rod at 3b, Jimmy rollins at ss (I guess), Jorge Cantu at Utility, Elijah Dukes and A. Soriano at OF. I may be over-thinking this, but it's a huge matchup. I just want to try to get some Runs too since I am down 2, and feel these players at the top of the order would benefit.

Thanks for all your help!

I'd start Morrow and Liriano and sit Lewis.

Those seem like the right hitters to go with for your matchup. Just make sure your hitters are actually starting. Don't leave any guys in your lineup if they are not starting.

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.

Thanks Grey, I owe you a beer. You helped me win the championship in my big $ league.

I also owe Jimmy Rollins something since he stole the game-winning base for my team. I'll just give him a swift kick in the balls since I'm a Met fan.

I started both the starters you mentioned, and I won ERA as a result. Thanks again, I appreciate it
