I would recommend sitting him because the game is at Great American, which is an absolute bandbox. Halladay has had problems keeping the ball in the park this season and propensity to give up homers is going to kill you in Cincy. Look at Mussina's start tonight, he had only given up 6 homers in 80 innings this year and gave up 4 tonight.

i would go ahead and start him. Hes won what, 7 straight starts? I know that not all of those were great starts, but he'll get plenty of run support. I think a pitcher of his caliber should be played every start.

I think it depends on your situation. In a roto league, I'd be inclined to sit him, since this is not a good matchup. He did get shelled in Boston last weekend, only getting the W b/c of the Jays amazing offense. If your in a h2h league and need wins, I think it's worth the gamble on your ERA.

Yeah, he has won 7 in a row, and yes the Reds do strike out a lot. But this is still Great American Ballpark we're talking about. I just know how badly Maddux and Hampton struggled on that flat mound. I wouldn't count on him having a great start. And I'm sure y'all saw what happened to Mark Mulder in Florida. And Pro Player Stadium is not a hitters park like Coors or Great American....

start him if you want a good solid chance at a win, hold back if you're fighting for the ERA crown. i dont think he'll have a 1.5 whip tonight, but he has the potential to get hit somewhat hard.

I sat him this week. I'm in a weekly points league. I've got Gagne and Wagner, and I had three starters with two starts, so those three were definitely pitching.

That left me to choose between Williams, Meche and Halladay for the last two spots. Great American made me choose Meche and Woody. So far, I've been right. We'll see how Woody and Halladay do today.
