I've had Ollie Perez, Mike Pelfrey, Micah Owings, and Scott Olsen in there at varying times... all have had great games on my bench and blown up while in my lineup. Warning you now... don't expect Pelfrey to keep throwing this way for the Mets (I just slipped him into the lineup this week).
I have the worst splits with AJ Burnett on my bench and in my lineup:
AJ on my bench: 61 IP 6 W 58 K 2.95 ERA 1.29 WHIP
AJ in my lineup: 52.1 IP 2 W 53 K 7.22 ERA 1.72 WHIP
It's just ridiculous.
I haven't started him in a month, I'll finally letting him start because he usually pitches shutouts after getting destroyed.
Hopefully everyone else who owns Burnett took a look at those stats up above, and decided to bench him tonight. Lol. (Sorry to get a laugh out of your misfortune, I just couldn't resist that zinger.)
Two people in my league have dropped Harang, and I still picked him up... figured he was going to bounce back. Hes been the cancer on my team since then, although I have figured out, at least, not to start him on the road, so he doesn't kill my team all that much anymore... still, there are plenty of spot starters out there that I can start at home and get good results out of. I'm about to become the 3rd person in my league to drop him. Someone else can deal with it. Lol.
I still have Konerko... everyone keeps telling me hes a great 2nd half player.
