Which pitcher would you start this week?

Postby beef » Sun Jun 22, 2003 11:51 pm

Which of these guys do you think will put up the most points? I'm in a head to head weekly league which scores points in the following manner:
Wins - 10 pts
K's - 1 pts
BB - -0.5 pts
Hits - -0.5 pts
ERA - -1 pts
Inn - 2 pts
Complete games - 5 pts

BH Kim vs FLA (Carl Pavano)
Ryan Franklin vs SD (Jake Peavy)
Brett Myers at BAL (Jason Johnson)
Vicente Padilla at ATL (Mike Hampton) and at BAL (Rick Helling)

Padilla has two starts which is always favorable, but the ATL matchup is not favorable. He's pitched well the last few starts he's had, but I'm not sure if I trust him yet. What do you guys think?

Myers
Franklin
Kim

I wouldn't even think of starting Padilla against Atl. I think he will get torched. Just my opinion.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I think he will take the Braves down, but I always think the Braves are going down because I hate them. Seriously though, I don't think they will put up too many runs on Padilla and I think he will get the win.

Bit of a change there, I think Padilla is facing Maddux - not Hampton.

Padilla owns Atlanta so far this year; in his two starts he has pitched a CG shutout and allowed 2 runs in 8 innings, so I wouldn't necessarily consider it an unfavorable matchup. Even if he does lose, Baltimore is a very favorable matchup so it more than makes up for it.

Padilla is the first choice because of the two starts. I'd start Kim next because he is on a team that should score lots of runs for him (although they haven't in his starts so far, that should change) and facing a weak offense. Franklin would be the third choice against a very weak Padres offense. He ranks below Kim because he has less potential to get K's. He has also been stung with bad luck when it comes to run support, such as yesterday when he gave up 1 run in 7 innings and took the loss. Myers would be the third choice because although he is coming off a great start he has been inconsistent the last few starts and because he is pitching on the road where he has pitched much worse this season (2.79 ERA vs 4.26 ERA)

So start them in this order

1. Padilla
2. Kim
3. Franklin
4. Myers
