I chickened out on starting him last night, I had him in my lineup until 3 or 4 yesterday afternoon when I decided the Yankees were due to destroy someone and had already roughed up Romero in his last appearance against them. %-6

Normally I would have done the same, but I felt like taking a risk yesterday.

I benched him too :-S He has a pretty steep home/road split and NYY killed him last time.

Holy cow! Pretty darn close. At this point, I think it's a draw. I guess in the end we can quantify the 5x5 stats using the z-score method. I was hoping it would be a no brainer decision though. :*)

How about we take out two outliers for each player in the dataset...something tells me Romero is a better pitcher than his numbers suggest.

pretty damm close, but I jumped back into the lead with a 2-1-1 overall

I think we both think Romero is a better pitcher, but the bet was over who would be better fantasy wise, I would say if the 2 guys switched places Romero wins hands down.

Ultimately its gonna come down to September
