3 Starters from same team

This might be dumb question but would this be a bad to have? I have Hudson & Mulder and am about to make a trade that would land me Zito.

I would be thrilled to have Hudson, Mulder, and Zito on my team. If they were three Rangers starters on one team, then i might be a bit concerned.

i won my league last year with the oakland trio, plus foulke, bradford and harden. oakland gets hot as hell in august every year and carries it into september. so if ur leauge has a playoffs they'll be even more valuable.

if ur willing to have any one of those three, then u shouldnt hesitate to grab all 3. in my league, i have 3 yank starters: moose, brownie, and contreras... and have no mixed feelings whatsoever.

I typically shy away from 3 starters from the same team, but I would love to have these 3. My theory behind not having 3 from the same team invloves a team slump or the loss of an important offensive player. Perhaps the closer goes on the DL and normal wins become painful no decisions. These 3 should be able to over come that and more. The Oakland offense should still put up runs. If there is a question it is regarding Rhodes as the closer. I think he'll do okay, but if he doesn't I'm sure Oakland will find someone who will.

plz... to play devil's advocate, a team like the yanks could go out and buy, or um sign... a player to the likes of nomah garciappara to play 2nd... that just benefits all three... but like u mentioned, the big 3 in oakland should have absolutely problems in any situation.

If its a roto league, no biggie. In H2H, you could be in for some trouble.
