Thoughts on streaming Minor?

Postby mixmastamikal » Thu Apr 05, 2012 2:31 am

Mike Minor is on my FA. How do you think he will fare against the Mets this sunday?
My other choice is Billingsley against SanDiego.

I would probably lean towards Billingsley only because it is in SD although he pitching against Luebke so probably not much offense happening that day. I like Minor for the season more than I like Billingsley although it is close.

I am not picking this guy up for the season just for one start. I am Asking what looks like a better matchup, Billingsly Vs. SD or Minor Vs. Mets. I believe that Minor id the better pitcher of the two but looking at the teams batting average against these guys in past meetings Billinglsy looks a lot better at .240(146 AB's) where against Minor the Mets are .293(41 AB's). Another thing i like is that last season SD was number 2 in most strike outs and hopefully that trend continues for this matchup. Here is a helpful page that I use to help me decide matchups to stream, right now i have it set to 2011 because there is obviously not much to go off of yet for this year. But it lets you sort the data easily and look at how they bat/ Steal/ etc. here ya go

http://espn.go.com/mlb/stats/team/_/stat/batting/year/2011/type/expanded

So all that said I am going to pick up Billingsly wish me luck!
