to start or not to start --> harden against bal

My gut tells me no, but if he has a great outting (which I really need) I'm going to be really disappointed.

On the flip side, I have prior, schilling, miller and morris pitching this week and have less that 300 innings left.

Maybe this is a no brainer but I need some reassurance!

I think I'll give Harden a last chance against Baltimore and if he has numbers like 5 IP, 5 era... I'm gonna have to replace him with someone.

I am but I am almost forced to. In my HTH league, I had a lot of innings this past week. That usually means that innings will be scarce this week. I mean if a pitcher pitches twice in 1 week, then the next he will probably only go once.

welp, i think if stakes are high, you can't count on the guy. he came out of nowhere and pitched great, then made some adjustments or something wrong and has been walking more guys than an escort service... i cringed against boston and was right on... but he started off damn near unhittable, now he's damn near un-notta-hittable.

i'm still loosely in an era race.. i'm at 3.42 and the league leader is 3.19... so i haven't DROPPED harden, but i'm sure as hell not starting him.

I'd sit him. The O's have some hot bats right now (Mussina got taken to the woodshed last week). Keep him riding the pine right now...

Well after Meche today, can it get any worse? My ERA is now 14 + so I am starting Harden.
