Sit Buehrle vs. A's and Mulder?

Postby The Dude » Fri Aug 08, 2003 2:20 pm

This is a no brainer, right? Sit Buehrle against Mulder and the A's?

(point league where w, k, outs, cg, sho are a + and bb, er, h are -)

Thanks in advance...

Why not start him? Oakland's offense isn't exactly a powerhouse, and if the A's can get to Mulder, then I think Buehrle might pick up the win. Unless you are over in innings and are conserving, I think he's worth the start.

Because you probably won't get many k's and would be likely to get a few walks and no win. Considering the point system he mentioned it sounds like a better idea to bench him. Mulder's been hot even without a good offense.

i know the a's dont score too many runs but i still would bench him knowing he will virtually get no k's, a lot of bb's, and the loss. the a's actually get to play at a hitters park and miggy is dieing to get a homer.

I bench Buehrle and what does he do?

9 innings, 5 hits, 2 er, 0 bb, 6 k's, and the win. Grrrrrr......Oh well, maybe next time! ;-)

Nah, the worst thing I typically say about a player is that they are worthless. Meaning for fantasy and not real life. Someone like Scott Williamson is worthless unless your league counts holds, but he's certainly not worthless in real life.
