Stream or Stand Pat? WHIR

Postby JJGBPD » Wed Jun 08, 2011 1:33 am

So, I'm tied this week 2-2 in wins in a 5x5 head to head league. We are even in SO and my ERA and WHIP are slightly better. The rest of the week I have:

Jair Jurrjens
C.J. Wilson
Kyle Lohse
Michael Pineda
Ian Kennedy
Shaun Marcum

He has:

Zach Britton
AJ Burnett
Trevor Cahill
Justin Verlander
Chris Carpenter
Anibal Sanchez
Cliff Lee
Rick Porcello
Jonathan Sanchez

As it stands, he has 9 more starts to my 6. Do I stand pat and hope to hold on to ERA and WHIP and concede wins and SO... or do I stream 1 pitcher each day so I have 11 starts to his 9 and hope to compete in all categories??? Things go bad with streamers, I could lose all categories though..... I'd be looking at streamers like Bronson Arroyo, Johnny Cueto, Dillon Gee, Charlie Morton, Bartolo Colon and Phil Humber. Advice needed! Thanks!

what are some guys available on the WW? I wouldnt say as to go as far as 11 starts, but id try at least 2 guys to give yourself a shot but it all depends on who is available. Bedard? Vogelsong? Collementer? to name a few

Britton has Oakland, Burnett has Boston, Cahill the White Sox, Verlander has Seattle, Sanchez has Arizona.... so for those 5 atleast, he has a couple very easy matchups and 3 that could go either way....

Bedard, Vogelson and Collmenter are all taken. The guys I'd probably have to roll with the rest of the week are Bronson Arroyo, Daniel Hudson, Dillon Gee, Bartolo Colon, Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto, Brandon Morrow, Brian Matusz etc. etc.

Id have no problem rolling the dice with Bumgarner vs Reds, Gee vs Pirates, Cueto vs Giants. Morrow Matusz and Hudson I wouldnt risk. Id try atleast 1 or 2 pickups you cant rely on ERA and WHIP, you need to give yourself a chance at W or QS and K and IPs
