Damn I've got him slated to start right now, but maybe I should pull back...

I just would hate it worse if he does well on my bench.

yeah stratus, thats soemthing Im concerned about too. I HATE it when I bench guys and they do well, worse than when guys playing do poorly...i have the awesome distinction of having myers on the bench for his shutout AND I had boone on the bench for his 3 homer game earlier. No good. Plus, I think I might need all the help I can get because my opponent this week has favorable matchuups like pedro vs the angels, harden vs. the tigers, jerome williams vs pitt, and wood vs the padres. Im thinking I may not be able to afford letting a guy sit who at leat has the chance to pitch a good game. Do my opponents matchups change anybody's advice?

You must be playing the same team...

My opponent has Pedro and Wood, too. He's also got Willis, Prior, and Bautista. I already know I'm going to lose in K's, but I figure I could either really use Myers' (possibly) excellent outing or I'm gonna lose anyways...

exactly, i feel like im at a big disadvantage and I cant really afford to risk what may be a good outing...even if my ERA and WHIP take a hit, i may not be able to afford losing a win or myers' K's...i think even thgouh its risky that Im going to start him.

I'd bench Myers.

wow, 2 runs over 7 innings and the win....looks like, even though conventional wisdom said not to start him, doingit was the right call. Thanks for the advice though everybody...next time thuogh, I don't think I'll try to dodge this bullet!

Somebody needs to do a study that details the effect of Coors on a pitcher. Obviously, prolonged exposure to Coors ruins a pitcher, no matter what type.

But what type of pitcher have success if visiting Coors? Maybe Groundball pitchers do well, while flyball pitchers do not. Either way, it would be interesting to look at and maybe use as a tool to predict success at Coors.
