Can choose from 5 starters today

Postby flloyd » Tue Aug 19, 2003 11:39 am

Millwood at Brewer's vs. Sheets
Webb vs Cincy's Bale
Mulder at Boston vs. Lowe
Clement at Houston vs. J. Robertson
J. Williams vs Atlanta vs. Ortiz

Millwood and Webb definitely.
J. Williams defintely not (and off my team if he does poorly).
Mulder ? because 4+ ERA away from home and facing best home offense in MLB.
Clement ? Dominated them last time but they've got a great offense and are playing at that home run box.

What do you guys think? Thanks for any input.

I'd bench Jerome. Clement is the only other one that bothers me, but I'd go ahead and start him as well.

Hmm, 29 runs over the last ten games is hot? That sounds like scary run support. I think that's a better argument for not starting Clement.

Millwood and Webb are definite starts. Is this H2H or ROTO and where do you stand in IP (do you have a limit)? I would probably start Clement and Mulder's borderline. I normally wouldn't say this with stud pitchers, but Mulder's offense doesn't provide much support, while the Sox are red-hot at home, just like you said. Mulder's road ERA is troubling, as well. If you're below your IP limit, or if this is H2H, go ahead and start him. However, if this is a ROTO league and you're not doing that well with IPs, bench him.

Uhhh, what a terrible start.

Mulder 3 innings, 2 ERs, 2Ks (out of game with injury)
Millwood 1 Inning, 2 ER, 1K
Clement 1 Inning, 4 ER, 1K 5 WHIP

:~( :~( :~( :~( :~( :~( :~( :~(

Can it get any worse than this?

Well it just did. Clement gives up a 3 run bomb. Well at least it was to my Kent. God, not even a perfect game from Webb could make today anywhere near to respectable for me.

13 innings, 8 Ks, 9.24 ERA, 1.97 WHIP

That's with Webb's one inning 2 Ks, 0 WHIP so far.

And pitching is the strength of my team.

Well Webb's brilliant outing (7 IP, 11Ks :-B, 1 ER, 1,14 WHIP) helped a little.

Final Line: 21 IP, 19 Ks, 6.00 ERA, 1.76 WHIP, 1 stinkin W.

Thankfully my offense somewhat made up for it:

12/37, 7 Runs, 2 HRs, 14 RBIs.

Due mostly to Thome: 1/2 1 Run, 1 HR, 2RBI :-) Rolen: 3/5 1,0,6 :-) :-) and Kent: 3/5 3,1,6 :-) :-) :-) :-)
