Do I bench Carrasco today? WHIR

Postby BlueJaysFan » Tue Jul 05, 2011 10:31 am

Carrasco has been on fire latley, but he's facing the yankees and CC today. I'm wondering if I should take a shot and hope he wins, or just bench him?

I have him in one of my leagues, and all signs point towards benching him.
He is facing the Yankees, and going up against CC Sabathia.

Plus his home ERA is almost twice as high as his away ERA.

2011 Stats:
Home: 38.1 IP 4.93 ERA
Away: 55.2 IP 2.59 ERA

Not sure on your other matchup options, but I would lean toward riding the hot streak. It is going to end sometime, but I would hate to leave the gem on the bench.

Thanks for help with mine.

Certain teams I bench pitchers, if it's vs Yankees, Red Sox, Rangers, etc. And especially since CC generally has run support.

I sure hope you didn't start him. 5 ER in the 2nd inning.
