Start Marcum and Cueto?

Postby ATLbraves » Sat Jul 09, 2011 3:00 am

I have Marcum and Cueto in my league and I am trying to decide if I should start them today. They are going against each other and the game is in Milwaukee. What do you guys think I should do?

I'd give Marcum the slight edge in this one, although I may be bias as I own him.

I'd also start both. I don't think either will have a bad game, and your almost guaranteed a win. Plus, they'll get you Ks and should help your ERA and WHIP.

Can you help with mine plz:

Hmm... I'm in a points league, so I never start my pitchers against each other. I either pick one, or bench both.

Brewers and Reds are huge hitting teams - especially at home for Brewers, while Reds have proven they can hit on the road. In a points league that's a lose-lose situation and I would bench both.

On a side note, I don't consider Cueto an ace, so I wouldn't have have started him in this one anyway. Marcum's got a better chance at getting a W because of Brewers' home record. If I was going to start either I would start Marcum and hope for a W.
