I wouldn't risk starting him then, because I doubt Parker gets a WHIP low enough to win that cat overall. Same with BBs. If you don't start Hanson your walk count doesn't go up. Who else do you have? Can you just choose to bench anyone who is starting today or who will pitch in relief (unless it's a stud like Chapman).
Hanson is my only SP going today. I do have 3 closers though: Chris Perez, Santiago Casilla, and Brian Fuentes.
My opponent's closers are Papelbon, Robertson, and Heath Bell.
