Lawrence @FLA, Tsao @NYM?

Postby warrick95 » Sat Aug 16, 2003 11:37 am

Jesus, I hate these borderline starts. I'm leaning towards starting Lawrence, benching Tsao. Lawrence has been up and down all year. Pro Player is a pitcher's park and I doubt the Marlins are gonna have two offensive explosions two nights in a row (10-0 last night). Shea's a pitcher's park, too, but the Mets have been hot lately (did I just say that?), and Al Leiter has been pitching well. Tsao's been average this year, giving up approximately 3-4 ER in each start. Do y'all think he could fare better against the Mets?

By the way, Lawrence's start is tonight, Tsao's tomorrow.

I'm also gonna start Hudson vs. Toronto today. I'm not gonna bench a hot, dominating pitcher, even against one of the best offenses.

lawrence has given up alot of HR's (reflected by his inflated ERA) but his WHIP is still around 1.25 which is pretty good....florida can jump on opposing pitchers early and make them throw alot of pitches in the first couple of innings, so don't expect b-law to pitch deep into this game unless he shows good control.

i'm probably going to start him but only because i'm in a h2h league and have a couple other good SP's going today to hedge a bad performance from him.

I think I'm gonna bench Lawrence, since he's facing the D-Train. I figure he'll probably end up with the loss. I'm in a ROTO league, so I can't afford a bad outing this late in the season. The Marlins hit fairly well and have big homer threats in Lowell and Rodriguez. Encarnacion, Cabrera, and Lee can jack some, too.

Tsao was pushed back to the 18th, which is good. He's now facing Aaron Heilman, so I think I'm gonna start him.

I think I'm also gonna pick up Trachsel for his start @SD against Kevin Jarvis on the 19th for a spot start.
