Tonight's Game from a Fantasy Standpoint

Postby tmyanks24 » Sun Apr 04, 2004 9:14 am

I have Pedro and Ponson. I'm almost certain to start Pedro, but should I start Ponson as well?

Nomar and Trot are not playing. That should help Ponson's odds of having a good game.

Without knowing your alternatives I would say that Ponson is not a good start tonight. I have a feeling that he is going to get shelled.

Nice thing about starting opposing pitchers is that you're guaranteed at least a W ;-D

It could be at the expene of your ERA, however.

If there is an IP limit, then bench Ponson. Otherwise, it is a homegame for Ponson and Baltimore is pretty nice offensively as well. With Pedro getting a bit touched in spring, I think Ponson is ok to start. Expect Ponson to give up 3-4 runs 9H/BB in 6-7 IP with 4-5 Ks and a below average chance for a win.

In a league with a limit on IP, it is a good idea to be careful with your early starts. Putting MRs in is usually a better idea early in a season. Players like Williamson and Ryan should look decent today.
Not afraid to go against the grain!

guaranteed a win? You ever think of a close game thats decided b/w the bullpen? So it doesnt guarantee a win.

Didn't see if it was H2H or Roto

There are totally different strategies depending on whether you're playing for the best stats for the week or best stats for the year

H2H I probably start them both - Roto just Pedro

One man's opinion anyway
