H2h strategy for starters?

Postby swyck » Sun Apr 03, 2005 7:31 pm

H2H 7x7 with L and CG. SP,SP,RP,RP,P, P, P, shallow rosters, daily transactions.

I'm looking at my first matchup, and I should do well in L, ERA, WHIP, and SV, lose K outright, be close in W, CG is a toss up. Thats 4-1 with the other 2 up in the air. That gives me good results in the pitching cats. I should do well in all hitting cats so that would give me the overall matchup.

My question is should start my #5 and 6 starters? Thats Westbrook (3.38) and Garcia (3.81). Neither will give me near enough K's to contend, they could get me a W or two, but they could also hurt me by raising my ERA or WHIP enough to lose it.

Right now I'm leaning towards giving them the ball -- neither is playing in Coors -- but I could just ride my top starters and relievers, and try to minimize my exposure.

Is this type of tinkering with matchups a resonable approach in trying to maximize weekly results, or is it better to just let them play? They could help to balance out any bad starts from my aces, and I dont think either of them are bad SPs. :-?

Keep in mind that you drafted Westbrook and Garcia with the intention to start them. That said, if you think they wont help for this week, then you obviously shouldnt start them.

Its hard to say what you should do for this week w/o seeing the full pitching staffs, but in general i would say to start Westbrook and Garcia.
