Eric Bedard vs SCORCHING hot rangers!?!?

Postby lbbaseball14 » Mon Apr 04, 2011 10:37 am

He's had a nice spring and its tempting to throw him out on the hill, but talk about a risky play here. I'm leaning towards no but what do some of you guys think?

I might get burned, but I don't think he's worth the risk. Not only because the Rangers just tore up the Bo Sox, but because Bedard hasn't pitched in a major league game since July '09 I think.

I'm really looking forward to this game as I want to see what both Bedard and Holland have going for them this season.

I've got him as well and the river boat gambler in me wants to throw him out there but i'm not going to. If he has a good start oh well ill still be more confident about him for the future and if he doesnt have a good start it doesnt hurt me and doesnt mean he wont get back to good form. His next start is cleveland at home against masterson so ill definitely start him in that one.

It's my opinion, backed up by nothing really except me watching quite a few Bedard starts over the years, is that when he struggles, he doesn't walk guys, he doesn't give up a bunch of hits at once, but he does give up the long ball. Against that lineup, in that park, I'm benching him, especially in a H2H league on a Monday. Just not worth the chance of detonating your ratios early in the week.

I'm starting him because the season just started and I don't like benching anyone this early..but I feel like he's going to get pounded :-o
