Trying to hold my lead in some pitching cats, but I want to make sure I've got a shot at holding Wins as well. I've got strong leads in ERA and WHIP, but a slim lead in wins. Is it worth it to trot Fister @MIN or Greinke @PIT or both out there? Both are pretty strong matchups, and could solidify my locking down wins for the week. I'm just worried about ruining my ERA/WHIP and hits leads. I'm winning ERA 1.72 to 5.00 and WHIP 0.74 to 1.26. The real danger is the slim 25 to 27 lead I've got in hits.
I'm sorry but you will have to pick from Brian Bass or Anthony Bass. As a Twins fan I still have nightmares of Brian Bass. I have no idea how the long reliever/mopup man was allowed to pitch in games that were close and late. Literally every single RP'er in the bullpen was a better option.
