Foppert, becuase he is the better pitcher


he has pitched well, he just doesn't get alot of run support, so watch out for that.

Buerhle has had three straight quality starts right now, and could have won all three with better run support. Foppert is an unproven and inconsistent rookie with a 4.58 ERA and 1.55 WHIP. Since it seems like Buerhle is turning it around, I'd start him. In a mixed league, Foppert isn't even worth having on your roster because he is too inconsistent. Unless it's a keeper league, he's waiver material.

a little bit of a bias no??

funny how you talk about Buehrle's 3 most recent starts but still use Foppert's season long production

in the same time frame...last three games here's the comparison...Fopperts numbers first

Record: 1-2, 0-2
IP: 16, 18.1
ER: 7, 5
K: 12, 11

I don't see any numbers that clearly indicate that one is better than the other...

keep in mind you're also using Buehrle's 3 best games of the season and comparing it against Fopperts last 3...

Buerhle actually started the season on fire, and had a 1.50 or so ERA through his first 4 starts. He then had 5 or 6 terrible starts, and now 3 good ones, so I'd ride him while he's on a hot streak.

well Buerhle is a career 20-13 with a 3.56 ERA at Comiskey/US Cellular. Neither is likely to be very helpful to your WHIP because Buerhle gives up too many hits and Foppert walks too many guys.

I would start foppert myers and Willis out of those 3.
Willis-starting against Mil he wil get a lot of K's and a Win
Foppert- playing agasint bad sox team. should get W
Myers-quietly emerging as a solid starter in MLB.
