Tonight's Game from a Fantasy Standpoint

I expect Boston to come out smacking the ball around. The Yankees just whipped up on Tampa Bay, so Boston will want to make some noise too. Now that it counts, I expect Pedro to pitch very well. I'd leave Ponson on the bench for this one, but that's just me.

Yes doctor, there will be a war.

I would only start Pedro. I'm not real excited about O's pitching.

Bench Pedro, start Ponson.

Oops... 8-o I don't know what that was, must be this daylight savings time.

I'd start them both, Ponson should be a stud this year, and with Nomar and Trot out, I like his chances.

The weather in Baltimore is cold, windy with possible rain. If there is an IP max you may want to avoid Ponson. If you are in a league were deadlines are set for the upcoming week Ponson has a favorable match up with TB in his 2nd start so in that situation I would start him.

Anyone else pumped for tonight's game? Tonight is the first time I'll be seeing any of my fantasy players in action (Tejada and Damon owner).

Today on ESPN- Ponson is 1-9 vs Bosox for his career. Any more
questions? I have Ponson and he's on my bench.

Do you really think that the Red Sox offense sits around and watches Yankee games to see if they will do well so they have more reason to hit well in their game? I don't really understand your viewpoint on that one. Baseball players have a lot more crap to worry about other than the box score of a Yankee-Devil Ray game.

I'm in the camp of starting Pedro, but benching Ponson. even without Nixon or nomar, the sox are likely to put up some good numbers.

If you're in my league, start Ponson! :-D

Well... that was a bad decision. I'd like to take this opportunity to say... "even a broken clock is right twice a day."
