Week 10: start Vogelsong, Lincecum or Shields? WHIR

Postby exm » Sat Jun 09, 2012 3:02 pm

Lincecum: @SEA / Blake
Shields: @MIA / Sanchez
Vogelsong: @SEA / Vargas

League: H2H SP Points:
Earned Runs Allowed (ER) -2
Losses (L) -4
No Hitters (NH) 15
Quality Starts (QS) 3
Strikeouts Pitched (K) 3
Walks Allowed (BB) -1
Wins (W) 8

I already decided to start Strasburg @TOR, Marcum @KC and Nova @ATL, @WAS. My other pitchers (2 RP, 2 P) are my closers: Betancourt, Axford, Street, Casilla. Saves count for 8 points; I also have T Clippard on my bench. I obviously could sit a closer also but my gut feeling would be to start Lincecum, playing in Seattle against the weakest pitcher of the 3. Shields is playing against a really good SP and has been shaky lately. Vogelsong has been great, but he doesn't get a lot of strikeouts and Vargas is also great.

Who would you start? WHIR.

Also, would you recommend P Sandoval at UTIL over D Ortiz, especially with BOS playing in some NL parks? E Encarnacion is my 3B.

I agree with you, I would start Lincecum, definitely the best of the matchups.

IMO I would still start Ortiz over Sandoval. Thanks for the help on mine!
