Anyone not start their starters for their first start

I'd play Harden and Webb. Webb's sinker actually does well in Coors. Harden pitched well versus the Yanks early last season.


Really? That would be great. Does it somehow defy the laws of physics and sink almost as much as in other parks? If the sinker's been decent at Coors the past few years, that would explain how he's been getting the results (albeit small sample size, hence my worry that he's so far been just lucky at Coors..)

I was wondering about Schilling too. His velocity seems to be back, but I'm not sure if that'd be enough for me to start him in Texas against the big bats..

Webb has a career 4.22 ERA, 1.59 WHIP at Coors in 7 starts. Only 3 homers given up in 42.2 IP though.

Clemens has a career 3.78 ERA, 1.56 WHIP at Coors in 3 starts. He's given up 4 homers in 16.2 IP.

I chose to eiliminate Webbs starts in Coors from his rookie season. I think it's a more fair way to look at his "Coors effected" stats :-b


You are just asking for trouble when you start anyone at Coors. Even if someone does well, it is just a matter of time before he blows up IMO.

I'd bench B.Webb in Coors if I had him.

I agree. I won't do it anymore, even if it's Santana. Not worth the low odds you get. Nomo threw a no hitter there, yet still has a career Coors era over 7. A 3 year run index of 133, which means runs are 33% more there, then league average. The only other park even close, is Texas at 119.

I've got four decent starts in the first two days, and I may be crazy, but I'm going to pitch all four.

D. Davis vs. Ol. Perez (Pit)
D. Lowe vs. T. Hudson (Atl)
S. Kazmir @ R. Lopez (Bal)
J. Patterson @ V. Zambrano (NYM)

I figure that's three wins with a decent ERA, WHIP and Ks.
