by far my biggest weakness when it comes to fantasy baseball is who to start/bench on a given day. i dont mean pitchers. if theyre scheduled to start, i almost always put them out there. no, i'm talking hitters. if given a choice between 2 hitters, i always, ALWAYS, pick the one who ends up not producing. take yesterday for example. spots i had not occupied by 'sure things' are 3b, IF, and 2 UTIL. i end up starting kouzmanoff, adam laroche, victorino, and ibanez. so what do i end up with on wednesday? 2 for 16 with 1 run. my bench had weeks, edwin encarnacion, and yunel escobar. thats 4 for 14 with 3 hr, 3 runs, and 7 rbi. i have no idea why i left yunel on my bench, but i dropped weeks down there because he hadnt look very impressive to date, and i thought that kouz was against a weaker starter than edwin. i wish this was an uncommon occurance for me, but it isnt. am i the only one who cannt pick the better player to start?
Today im going with weeks, edwin, victorino, and yunel. watch kouz and laroche each hit hr's
