Inconsistency is a female dog!

Postby skjelstrom » Sun Aug 01, 2010 1:14 pm

Ive always been able to count on Dan Haren in the past but this year he is SOOO inconsistent. Bench him on starts he gets a CG and start him when he gets 6 ER. Same with Matt Garza. Of course he's benched getting a no-hitter and started when he gets pulled in 3.... Ugh its driving me crazy. So I guess my point is. How do I predict this kind of stuff? or is it pretty much unpredictable? This sounds like a dumb question but ive been starting my pitchers against weak teams but they get killed and do amazing against the good teams which i bench them against!

When I have a good pitcher like Garza or Haren I start them every time. With these guys when they're really on they can handle any lineup pretty well. When they're way off they'll get burned...happens to everyone. Take the good with the bad.

Yup, as jake said....pitchers like Dan Haren are usually your #1 or 2 SP so he needs to be started every time.
