I am beating my opponent 7-3. Every cat is a game, so I the final score counts, it's not just a W or L.
I am winning all but Ks. He cannot reach me in ERA unless he gets more than 9 shutout innings tomorrow. If he gets 9 perfect innings, he will beat me in WHIP by .01.
He has Beckett tomorrow. He also has Papelbon. I have C Young and Wandy Rodriguez going.
Should I bench my pitchers and be happy with the victory, or be aggressive and go for the shutout, with the chance I blow my ratios? I am down 7 Ks.
Be excellent to each other.
