Clement or Buerle?

Postby thundakat82 » Sat Jun 21, 2003 12:00 am

I have both Matt Clement and Mark Buerle and who would be a better start for tommorows game? I was thinking Clement since he's been pitching well lately but the White Sox have been putting up some pretty good offensive numbers lately. Any suggestions?

I'm going out on a limb and going to say Beuhrle.

Let's see if I'm right.

Clement: 3.1 innings, 11 hits, 3 bb, 7 er, 3 k's

Buehrle looked good through 3 innings, but might be imploding right now. He just gave up a 2 run shot to Moises Alou, followed by a single. 3 innings, 5 hits, 1 bb, 2 er, 1 k, so far. There's 2 on, no outs, top of the 4th right now.

Update on Buehrle: 6 innings, 7 hits, 2 bb, 3 er, 2 k's. Quality start so far. Buehrle struck out in the top of the 7th so he will stay in the game.

Gets the win, but 11 baserunners, 4 ER and his usual 2 K's in 6.1 IP isn't exactly stellar. I still say he's not worth owning.

buerhle's worth owning if you don't spend a lot to have him. even lsat year, when he won 19 games, his WHIP was pretty high, in the 1.30 region. He just doesn't have the stuff to be a lights out kind of guy. and if he isn't getting run support, he'll be pretty mediocre this year. maybe 10-12 wins. but still, he's young, and should rebound from this, making him worth owning for the remainder of this year

i wouldn't go for either of those, dude. surely you can scrape the waiver wire for better.

oh for the start.. .well, i had a preminition about buehrle being able ot beat the cubs.. turns out i was right... still, despite buehrle pithcing better, these pitchers aren't guaranteed to rock your world. sure, if buehrle can rattle off 5 wins in a row... go for it. otherwise, i dont see either of them being big parts of a fantasy rotation for the rest of the season.

unfortunately for me, i drafted buehrle as one in 2/3 leagues, and i had to eat his 4.5 era and 1.6ish whip. not coincidentally, my ERAs in three leagues: 4.04, 3.45, 3.81. guess which two had buehrle....

I had him benched, but started him at the last minute. I waived him to remove any temptation to use him in the future.

Luckily Willis and Woody pitched well enough to soften the blow a little, and my main ERA challenger threw Lohse and Hudson out there today, and they got shelled too.

Still, if I'd have benched Clement, I'd have given myself a nice little cushion. As it is, I likely re-gain the ERA lead by a hair.
