Start Verlander @NYY Opening Day?

Postby RunReyesRun » Tue Mar 29, 2011 6:52 pm

My brain tells me no, as Verlander has been miserable in previous Aprils, and is obviously pitching in a hitter-friendly track.

But, it's Opening Day, and I'm anxious :-) ... thoughts?

Hard to bench a stud. So no. One of those times where I would kick myself more if he threw a CG w/ 12K then if he gives up 6 runs in 3 innings.

I would start him.

You draft a guy that high and you should use him. I know that he usually starts slow, but maybe this year he doesn't. You'll be furious if you don't start him and he dominates, and if he gets blown up... Well at least baseball is back! :-)

I'd start him. I'm a Yankee fan and he always gives us fits.

Fair enough, he's in. I'll blame you four if he gets shelled, and credit myself when he throws that gem. :-)
