Start/Bench recommendations for the week

Postby jdh » Tue Jul 29, 2003 2:35 pm

Here are the starters I have going this week, and I wanted to see what everyone else thinks about starting or benching them. I am in a roto league without an innings limit, but am way ahead in wins and Ks, so I can afford to be selective about who I start for awhile. Ideally, I am looking for good ERA and WHIP and hopefully complete games and shutouts. I can start as many or as few as I want.

Tuesday:
Mulder vs Cleveland (Anderson)

Wednesday:
Brown in Philly (Myers)

Thursday:
D.Wells in Anaheim (Sele)
Harden vs Cleveland (Westbrook)
Od.Perez in Philly (Duckworth)
Miller in Atlanta (Reynolds)

Friday:
Mussina in Oakland (Hudson)
Beckett vs Houston (Redding)

Saturday:
Lowe in Baltimore (R.Lopez)
Nomo in Atlanta (Hampton)

Sunday:
Mulder vs Yankees (Pettitte)

Any of these stand out as definite disasters? I was thinking Miller and Perez might be the most dangerous.

Tuesday:
Mulder -- Definitely versus Cleveland
Wednesday:
Brown -- This is a toss up, Philly's offense could blow up against him.
Thursday:
Wells -- I would do this against a reeling Angels offense in my opinion.
Harden -- yes, seems to have found a notch so far, plus it is against Cleveland
Perez -- no, wait on this one, though I could be wrong, but this I wouldn't do.
MIller -- sorta iffy although he has shown his second half dominance here of late, I might take a flier and go with this one.
Friday:
Mussina -- always especially since they are playing what is now a terrible A's offense.
Beckett -- eh, could get some k's but other than that probably just about 6 IP's
Saturday:
Lowe -- Never really have liked him, but against the O's I would sit him
Nomo -- against ATL, I would sit him although he coudl get some K's.
Sunday:
Mulder -- Always the possiblity of him going the distance because he is one of the most efficient pitchers in the game today in my opinion, but against the Yanks, well you never know, could surprise. I would go with him.
That's a pretty good pitching staff there

Miller in Atlanta (Reynolds) could be risky...could also be very good. I'd start him... ;-D

Beckett vs Houston (Redding) :-t

Lowe in Baltimore (R.Lopez) ;-D
Nomo in Atlanta (Hampton) ;-D

I'd start Odalis for sure. If he is going vs. Ducky you should be golden.
