the danger of spot starts

Postby SimbaPenn » Mon Sep 22, 2003 9:35 pm

Paul Abbott cruises through 4 innings, but comes out in the 5th with an injury...but not before he loads the bases with no outs.

Affeldt comes in, balks in a run, sac fly for another, last guy singled in. That's 4 earned in 4 for those scoring at home...faaaaaantastic. there goes my ERA.

I ran into that a few times this year myself :-/ . Scot Shields anyone? :~( Lol. It's one of those calculated risks that just doesn't pay off all the time.

So since we're on the topic of spot starts, would you start Jose Lima against the Tigers and Shane Loux tommorrow at Kauffman Stadium?

I'd take the chance with Lima against Det, but I wouldn't start Loux against KC.

No problem. I went back and read it again. I see what you meant. :-b Lol. I very rarely worry about the opposing pitcher in a match up(once in awhile, but not often). I look at the team my possible starter is facing and make the decision. I just didn't read your post close enough. No problem though. :-)
