Duch or Masterson

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

Duch or Masterson

Postby steamer33 » Thu Apr 15, 2010 5:12 am

My H2H SP pitching staff is J. Johnson, Kershaw, Bills, Price, Lariano, Cueto, E. Santana.

Both Duchscherer & Masterson on the WW. I'm pretty good in Ks, but WHIP may be a problem. Are either of these guys an upgrade from anyone on my team?

I'd cut Ervin.
I like Masterson a little better overall, but I could see him being a WHIP liability (though he has only walked 2 so far).

I haven't played in too many H2H leagues, but I'd consider Masterson even though he won't help you WHIP. Duchs won't save your WHIP and there's no point in being just below average in a category. Personally, I'd grab Masterson, try to dominate each week in K's, and hope you get lucky from time to time with WHIP.

Duchs should be better for your WHIP than Masterson though. If that's really your concern, then he'd be the man.

I'd cut Cueto and pick you Duch. This will really help your WHIP.
