Why would you even have doubts about this...? You have pitchers on your team because you want them to contribute to your team. Unless they're playing at Coors or against a fabulous offensive team, START EVERYONE!
Well, for starters he relies on the groundout. Where are they playing? In the Metrodome, where a groundball doesn't slow down. The Twins are experts at slapping the ball into the Metrodome turf and finding holes in the defense.
Oh, and he pitches on Friday the 13th against Johan Santana most likely.
I'm benching him. I tried starting Foppert against my Twins, and I got burnt. I can't complain though, the W's have been coming pretty easy overall - 3 for 3 today with Halladay/Clement/Willis. I think I'll quit while I'm ahead.
