Opposing Pitchers...?

Postby Baggins » Thu Apr 22, 2004 6:01 pm

When you have two pitchers that are due to start against one another...1) start 'em both, 2) bench the weaker pitcher, or...3) other? Example: Schilling vs. M. Batista (tonight). :-?

pitch the pitchers going against the cold lineup. in this case schilling. batista has been AWFUL lately. sit him until he figures things out and the jays start hitting.

I usually try to pitch guys that are going to give good ratios and take a win as a bonus, if it comes... this usually means starting a good pitchers and above average pitchers against cold/weak hitting clubs... I don't really see a problem starting two opposing pitchers except when you are VERY inning limited -- then just make your best guess.

Bench Batista, hes going to be lit, badly tonight.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!
