I'm leaning about 80% start here, I've got a few decent starters on my team (kazmir, cain, slowey, bedard, cueto, sherzer) and 2 days into the H2H match-up I'm trailing in ERA by about 6 innings & 6 runs (if my opponent had one bad performance we'd be tied) and we're even with strikeouts/wins/whip, I have 2 less losses so far.
A bad start here for Cain against the Dodgers offense could put my way back in ERA, drop down my WHIP and close the gap in losses. However, he has some good starters that will probably edge me in strikeouts & wins - unless I start my guys... what to do?
Cain had a great start to the season, dare I fool with him this early - 7inn/1er/5k vs Brewers offense last week. I think I played the right move by benching Scherzer last night, he only grabbed 1 k in 5inn with 3er - would've been no help.
Start or Bench?
