Do you ever start pitchers at Coors/Arlington?

Under what circumstances would you start a pitcher at these parks? #1 Studs only?

I'd start any good pitcher there. The guys who I'd bench are the marginal pitchers who I'd check their matchup for anyway.

Sure, I start my studs there. Middle of the road guys might get started at the Ballpark, but most likely not at Coors. Just depends on the pitcher and how the Rangers/Rockies are hitting.

Like everyone else, I start the good pitchers. Otherwise, I look at how the pitcher's opponents have hit against him in the past, and how the team has been hitting as of late. Started Wade Miller yesterday, wasn't to disappointed.

Yes, I was the lead singer for Sexual Chocolate, but I have moved on since Rev. Brown passed away.

What about Pavano starting in Coors tonight?

I wouldn't start Pavano there. He's not studly enough for me to trust him. ;-)

I would agree, Pavano is not enough of an ace to start at Coors. Also depends on what you need -- wins or ERA/WHIP. Pavano is going up against Elarton, who last threw a strike in little league. If you are desparate for W's, even at the expense of ERA/WHIP, maybe you could go with Pavano, but I wouldn't.

Florida would be a pretty strong favorite to win the game against Elarton, but they may win it 11-7.

i would only start studs (or good pitchers on a hot streak) with a slight liniency towards groundball pitchers. it also depends on the condition of your pitching staff. if you're doing really good, then theres no need to start someone other than a 100% stud at Coors or Arlington. and when your staff is struggling, theres a smaller risk factor involved.

btw- what do you think about the effect of good hitting parks on closers/relievers... i would think that at least the decent ones wont be effected much whereas the average reliever would be a lot more of a risk

Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)

Never start anyone at Coors. RJ, Schilling, and Maddux all have terrible numbers at Coors. Well, RJ has a 4.00 ERA at Coors which is terrible for him at least.

I would start a stud. I started Clemens in Coors saturday. He gave me a win and 9 K's albeit he gave up runs.Who else do I start some marginal pitcher who will probably give up the runs without the K's and the win !+)
