Start Millwood against the Braves?

Postby LCBOY » Sun Sep 07, 2003 10:18 pm

I play in the second round of the playoffs starting tomorrow. I have Millwood and Baustisa tomorrow and Randy Johnson on Tuesday. I have eight starters and thus 11 scheduled starts for the second round. My opponent has only only seven starters and only eight scheduled starts next week. Should I bench Millwood against the Braves?

I don't think it's worth the risk unless you just want to focus on wins and k's. Personally, I'd bench him against the Braves.

My opponent has Nomo and he is scratched from his Tuesday start. So my opponent doesn't have any starters scheduled to start twice next week. He will be forced to pick up a few pitchers for either Monday or Tuesday. I would if I were him.

FYI, we have 10 pitching categories in our league.

Millwood

Millwood hasn't fared very well against his old mates this year.

Even so, I'm still leaning toward starting him myself. He's too good of a pitcher to leave on the bench, IMO.

Since you get points for appearances and innings pitched, and there's no ERA and WHIP categories, I don't think you have anything to lose by starting him.

Well there is an earned runs catagory and walks. I'd still bench him. Just not worth the risk in my opinion.

OK!! Millwood has a 4-0 lead in the top of the first. How many say he can hold this lead and win the game?

I'd be happy if I had a pitcher with a 4-0 lead before he took the mound. :-D
