Two pitchers pitching against each other.

Do you start both pitchers if they are pitching against each other, I mean someone has to lose right? Tomorrow Hellickson is pitching against Alverez, should I start both or just pick one to start, thanks in advance.

I was getting ready to post that same question but you didn't get a single response! I am new to ROTO baseball and I was just curious about strategy.

After careful consideration, I set my line-up to start Peavy & Colon who are going head-to-head Monday. My reasoning, ultimately, was one of them will (most likely) get the W which aren't always easy to come by. Picking one OR the other you risk guessing wrong then kicking yourself later.

I typically like to roll the dice and pitch both. Unless of course the matchup favors one pitcher significantly, such as Halladay v. some scrub on some bad team.
