Of course I had his 4-for-4 game on my bench (after starting him a couple of other times this week with a 1-for-8 to show for it). Werth's matchup on Saturday looks especially tasty. He mashes lefties, and mashes at Coors. On Sat, he faces a poor lefty (Jorge de la Rosa) at Coors! I'd really like to get him in my lineup, but my other options look good too. Here are my other OF and Util spots:
Carlos Lee - faces Wainwright @StL. Lee is only 1-for-13 lifetime against Wainwright. But that's not a terribly big sample size, and Lee is a stud hitter.
Magglio Ordonez - faces Matt Harrison (a Texas lefty) at home. Maggs has never faced Harrison, who doesn't have much of a track record (and what he's done hasn't been particularly impressive)
Bobby Abreu - faces Brad Penny at home. Abreu has faced Penny a lot in his career, and has hit him really well (0.341 avg and 0.977 OPS in 44 at bats)
Johnny Damon - faces Horacio Ramirez (a lefty) @KC. Damon has a modest platoon difference vs lefties, though it's been a bit more pronounced in the last couple of years. He's 3-for-7 lifetime against Ramirez (who isn't a particularly good pitcher, especially when starting)
So you can see, there are no turkeys in that lineup. The only one with a bad matchup is by far the best hitter (Lee). This is in a 6x6 (with OPS and holds) H2H league. Heading into Saturday, the hitting categories are all super close (trail by 1 run, HRs are tied, lead by 2 RBIs, trail by 1 SB, lead AVG by 0.032, lead OPS by 0.005). Any suggestions? Leave a link and I'll answer any of yours (provided I see it in time).
