Prior to Myers start yesterday I had an ERA under 3.50 and a WHIP of about 1.10, so I was trying to plan something for next week that worked off that lead, but now I'm not so sure.
I am thinking about what categories I can plan for next week. Would you consider any of his leads insurmountable, or at least not worth pursuing? I was thinking HR, RBI, and perhaps HLD. As far as the latter is concerned, he has Joba, and this week I sent out Devine, so if I were to try to catch up I would probably need to start 2 MRs, which I might actually do if he doesn't start a closer next week. (An annoying side note- every time I get a save he gets a hold. And he got a hold despite my not getting a save (NYY scores in the bottom of the 8th)). Holds are silly like that.) The flip side to this is that I would likely need to start as many 2 starters as possible to try to catch up in the other pitching categories.
One move I'm considering is Maybin, who I think could help me make a run at SB.
I plan to post more substantive and specific Qs either tonight or tomorrow afternoon, but just as a general issue does anything jump out as something I should pursue or punt?
I don't think you should punt anything just yet.
