I ended up 2nd in our 14 team H2H league, so I am sitting on the sidelines this week.

Since the AS break, my starting pitching has been ugly. It seems that it starts bad with my pitcher(s) having a very bad Monday. This forces me to play catch-up all week.

I've been thinking about just playing my relief guys (Foulke,Soriano,Beck,Lopez) for the fisrt 2 or 3 fays and see what happens.

dusn't work... ppl have tried it before
you dont get enuff inning eaten to keep ERA down and relivers are inconsistent, if they give up one run you'll have a 9.00 ERA casue relievers dont eat enough innings. plsu you'll lose in strikeouts and wins

My problem in the H2H yahoo leagues I'm in is that I'm in first place and all my ace pitchers are getting two starts this week. (Miller, Woods, Prior and Willis) It will be difficult for me to win pitching next week when I'm in the playoffs. :-o

Any suggestions?

Pick up a couple of 2-starters next week. Ride the hot hand.

Agreed.

So a Wednesday or Thursday starter this week would start two games next week?

Usually. That would make them start next Monday/Tuesday and then again on Saturday/Sunday. Just be sure to check for off days.
