Who to start today?

Postby CBMGreatOne » Tue Aug 26, 2003 1:10 pm

I have a bunch of guys on my various teams that I'm hedging on letting start. Not all of these are guys I'm unsure about, but I'll list all of the pitchers I have starting today and ask for your opinions.

Prior @STL
Schmidt @COL
Padilla @MON
Clemens Vs CHW
Harden Vs BAL
Loaiza @NYY
Od. Perez @HOU

All of them are scary for various reasons, but I'm definitely giving Prior the nod. Schmidt at Coors I figure is probably a 50/50 quality start or no. Padilla at Montreal seems pretty safe, but they did go crazy last night. Clemens is another that looks fairly safe. Harden has had trouble in his last couple starts, but I think the Orioles is a lineup he can handle. Loaiza could get rocked and Odalis could get rocked in Minute Maid. What do you guys think?

Prior...start.
Schmidt...bench. He probably won't get the win either, with Barry out of the lineup.
Padilla...weak lineup, but I'd bench. Padilla's gotten rocked lately. Looks like he's really tired.
Clemens...start.
Harden...You're mistaken. The O's have an offense in the top third or so in the AL. Still, I'd start. His last two starts were against TOR and BAL. I believe those were flukes.
Loaiza...gotta start him.
Odalis...I'd lean towards starting. Houston hasn't been hitting very well lately, I think.

Ehh, I don't know about the numbers concerning the O's, but considering I get comcast and watch them all of the time, they certainly just don't scare me. For the most part, when I've seen them against a pitcher who keeps it in the zone and can throw more than one pitch over for a strike, they've been pretty tame. I was probably going to start Hardne because I do like the matchup and his chances to rebound.
