Sosa McGriff Alou Clement vs. Lawrence

Postby Dark Treb » Sat Apr 27, 2002 12:25 pm

That's the matchup I have for next Tuesday! I've also got Padilla going, so should I sit Lawrence and hope Clement Sosa Alou McGriff tear him up?

Play your hunch. If you think he'll get hit hard, bench him.

Personally, I'd start him in San Diego, but trust your instincts here. The worst that can happen is that you'll miss a decent start.

With the Cubs getting rained out today, the matchup changes to Sosa, McGriff, and Alou vs. Lawrence.

Also, I think I was being unclear (sorry), what I meant was, I have Sosa, Alou, and McGriff on my team along with Lawrence!

No, you were clear. Maybe I wasn't, though. :*)

Playing Lawrence would most likely bring you an average day: if your hitting rocks, your pitching will suffer, and vice versa. Benching Lawrence raises the stakes: you could do very well, or have a disappointing day. More risk, more fun, as they say.... (does anybody really say that?)

It sounds like you're rooting for your bats - in that case, sit Lawrence, but don't fret about this decision too much, especially if he does well.
