Have a TON of starters 5/13... who do I bench?

Rank these starters in order of best to worst:

Mike Mussina Vs. the Angels (of course I'll be starting him)
Kevin Millwood Vs. the DBacks (see above)

These are the ones I'm not sure about what order I should put them in:

Cassey Fossum (decent last few starts) Vs. Texas
Career against TEX: 1W 13K 2.57ERA (4ER in 14IP) 1.29WHIP
Boston 5-3 in May, Texas 2-7 in May

Kyle Lohse (excellent last start) Vs. Kansas City
Career against KC: 1W 9K 4.50ERA (8ER in 16IP) 1.75WHIP
Minnesota 7-2 in May, KC 4-6 in May

Brandon Webb (excellent in his limited appearances this season) Vs. Philadelphia
Career against PHI: 0W 7K 3.86ERA (3ER in 7IP) 1.14WHIP
Arizona 4-5 in May, PHI 5-3 in May

Brian Lawrence (shelled last few starts) Vs. Florida
Career against FLA: 0W 6K 11.12ERA (7ER in 5.2IP) 2.29WHIP
Padres 2-7 in May, FLA 2-6 in May

Roto League, regular 5 categories.

Tied for 4th in wins (2 wins out of 3rd)
3rd in Ks (7K out of 2nd)
5th in ERA (.28 out of 4th)
6th in WHIP (.02 out of 4th)

I can start all of them if need be, but I'd have to sit my closers. 4th in saves (3 out of 3rd).

I'd start Lohse and Webb. Lawrence doesn't seem to have command of his pitches right now and the Marlins will steal every bag they can (if the new manager lets them). Fossum against Texas could be very scary. I know his career numbers against them are good, but the Ranger's have the ability to destroy your whip and era numbers. Fossum could do well, but I wouldn't risk it.

start webb, definitely. I wouldn't be surprised if he finds himself still in the dbacks rotation even after johnson gets back.

Well I think Fossum's start was moved to Wednesday. And considering the Marlins spanked the Padres today I think I'll keep B. Law out until he shows he's back to form. So it looks like Lohse and Webb ;-D

Crap! I wanted a pitchers duel between Webb and Millwood and I got more than I bargained for since they both left the game with a 1-1 tie so they couldn't get the win :-( Oh well.


So far: 26IP 0W ( :,-( ) 1SV 24K 2.08ERA 1.12WHIP Not too shabby ;-D

Thanks for the replies everyone :)
