Start Buchholz and Moore today?

Postby nyr199435 » Fri Apr 20, 2012 11:55 am

Here are the stats:
Pitchers:
IP: 1
W: 7
L: -7
CG: 4.5
SHO: 9
SV: 7
ER: -1
BB: -1
IBB: -1
K: 0.5
HLD: 4
NH: 18
PG: 27
QS: 3.5
BSV: -7

If a pitcher gets a quality start, a win, and 6-7 Ks, they can be worth a solid 20 points. If they give up 5 runs, lose, and only go a few innings, they can be worth -20. I'm wondering if you would start either of these two:

Matt Moore home v. Min
Clay Buchholz home v. NYY

Currently I'm winning 139 to 95. Two good starts could put this matchup away, or a blown start could even it up. What should I do? Thanks!!!

I'm in a similar situation, up 50 in a points league and am starting Buchholz (would definitely start Moore).

It's too early in the week IMO unless up by 100+ to go all conservative (just my nsho)

Anybody else? Still not sure if Buchholz should be in. I'm definitely starting Moore, but Buchholz has been horrible to start the season and the Yankees are overpowered as always, though he is pitching in Fenway.

In Roto I would not be starting Buchholz...I would definitely roll with Matt Moore though.

In this format...I'm not sure anything really changes..Bucc could very easily be demolished tonight and I'm not sure what the upside is tonight. Maybe 7 innings 3 runs with 5 Ks...risk/reward makes him a pretty bad play if you are trying to hold onto a lead
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?

Buchholz got demolished. He gave up two homers to Eric Chavez. I didn't even know he was still around.
