What do you guys recommend when you have two starters facing each other? Should I go with the Vegas odds or what? I have Rogers and C. Hernandez facing each other today. I know Rogers through over 120 pitches last week and then came back and got blasted in four I was thinking of benching him anyways. Vegas says the Astros are winners---but, Vegas versus you guys...I thought I would get your opinion.

Looks like a made the wrong decision....Hernandez gave up three runs in the first...could make for a long day. Go Texas!

Go Yankees!

Ok, I'm calling this after the fact, but I tend to avoid that park in Houston unless I have a true ace on the mound. Four homers today do nothing to change that opinion... :-o

Generally, I have no problem with starting two guys against each other, though. If given a choice between Hernandez and Rogers, I'd rank Hernandez higher, regardless of the opposition. I still don't believe in Rogers...

In general, the Vegas odds are a useful tool, but picking winning teams, much less winning pitchers, is extremely tough in baseball. take a peek at the odds when making tough calls, but don't let them override your hunches.
