Okay, after my last spot start with Shields, I'm feeling very
insecure with any spot starts. I wouldn't post this, but I'm seriously scared now.
The guys I'm considering are written first, the pitcher he's facing second.
Traber vs. Cornejo (DET)...scared...scared...I fear the mighty Detroit offense after Scot Shields.
Day vs. Padilla (PHI)...Padilla's been ice cold lately with a 6.89 ERA in his last three starts. But, the Phillies have a good offense.
Jason Johnson vs. Harden (OAK)...I don't know...A's have a weak offense.
None. I was considering Lawrence vs. Schilling, but I'm gonna go with no, because I'm only gonna stand for really good spot starts now (ERA below 3, WHIP below 1.2)
Redding vs. LA (Alvarez). Redding gave up 3 ER to the Reds earlier this week. I'm probably going with him here, since I think he'll do better this time.
Anyway, like I said, I only want really high quality starts, no borderline ones. I want an ERA below 3.5 with a WHIP below 1.2. I'm leaning towards starting Day and Redding. I can start as many as I want, or none. Thanks.
