Harden to Start Vs. Perdo Martinez Thursday

Postby d18Mike » Wed Aug 20, 2003 11:52 pm

Looks like the Hudson/Mulder injuries have forced Macha's hand. Earlier this week he said Harden would be skipped this start.

This from Rotoworld ...

Tim Hudson, hit on the hand by a line drive on Saturday, was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday.
Rich Harden will take his place against Boston's Pedro Martinez on Thursday. Hudson is now scheduled to pitch on Sunday, which would have been Mark Mulder's start.

Who's Perdo? Is he any good? :-D Lol. Sorry, just had to get you on Perdo instead of Pedro. :-b Lol. ;-)

Anyway, it should be a very interesting game to watch.

I'd sit Harden for this one. If the A's win this, it's most likely to happen (say it with me now) against the Red Sox bullpen. That means that the most likely way for Harden to get a win is to pitch deeper into the game than Pedro. It could happen, but if you are tight in IP there are better starts out there.

Even if you don't care about getting the win, I'd still be hesitant to start Harden AT Fenway against the Red Sox. Harden will have plenty more starts this season...

On a related side note, HOW ABOUT THEM A'S! They are starting to put things together, injuries or no injuries. I may just have to put down a deposit to guarantee tickets throughout the playoffs...

In the league I'm in, you can't bench a pitcher, so I have Harden going tomorrow against Boston and Pedro. Boston is the top-hitting team at home in MLB (based on OPS).
Boston, at home: .321/.395/.537, .932 OPS, 6.7 R/G

I also have Penny going against Colorado, the 2nd-best hitting team at home in MLB.
Rockies, at home: .303/.381/.518, .898 OPS, 6.8 R/G

And Schmidt against the Braves, who are the 2nd-best hitting team on the road in MLB.
Braves, away: .274/.339/.474, .813 OPS, 5.8 R/G.

Could be a scary day, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
