Who should I start today, Shawn Green or Jason Giambi?

Postby jebatzel » Sun Jul 27, 2003 1:21 pm

Jason is facing Derek Lowe today and is batting a mear .059 this past week with no rbis

Shawn is facing Schilling today is batting .300 this week with 4 rbis

Losing rbis by one right now and losing average and bearly winning OBP.

So who should I start, this would normally be an easy answer for me, but Giambi has such a terrible week. Beckett shut him down yesterday too.

In his career, Giambi is .273 (6 for 22) with 1 HR and 2 RBIs vs Lowe.

Green is a career .278 (10 for 36) with 2 HR and 2 RBI vs Schilling.

Since Lowe isn't pitching as well this year as in the past and LA's offense has been non-existant lately, I'd still start Giambi. There's no real difference in their career numbers against the pitchers they are facing though.

cool my team jumped ahead in rbis, 5 so far, average and OBP too.

Should have benched Luis Matos though, Halladay is shutting Balimore down.

wondering if I should bench Lo Duca so he doesn't hurt my average.

My lineup for today:

3B Pujols, Albert (LF, 3B, 1B-StL) 3B Pit (playing o for 1)
SS Cabrera, Orlando (SS-Mon) SS Atl (playing 1 for 2, 2 rbis, sb)
OF Matos, Luis (RF, CF-Bal) OF @Tor (playing 0 for 1)
OF Sheffield, Gary (RF-Atl) OF @Mon (playing 2 for 3, 2 rbis)

I wouldn't even consider benching Giambi for Green.
