Crunch-time Plan

Postby Kelly Gruber » Sat Jul 17, 2004 2:33 am

I am in a league with 7 teams. I purposely drafted and played 1 less pitcher than would keep me on pace for the IP limit. Therefore, I will be about -60 IP come August. Ideally, I would like to spot start the good and decent pitchers that are on FA to make up those innings (ERA and WHIP do not matter, only wins, losses and strikeouts).

My question is this: Do you know of good sites that outline favourable pitching matchups? Last year I employed the same strategy but it was kinda hard because I'd have to look at the schedule and then compare pitchers' stats seperately to find good matchups. Are there sites that show both pitchers stats and team run support and streaks and other stuff like that?

Is it that hard to remember which offenses are good and bad? And also, Yahoo shows how pitchers have done against teams in previous starts throughout the season.

Risky and interesting strategy, hope it works out for you.

You can see how a pitcher fares against certain opponents by looking at Split Stats. Here's Pedro for example:

Hope this helps ;-D


P.S. Wow, Pedro is 13-0 for his career against Seattle 8-o

It's more than that. Would I pick up a pitcher against KC now? No, they're on a hot streak right now. They have been horrible all season but I wouldn't pitch against them now.

What I'm looking for is an article posted every week that shows all the starts for the week/upcoming days and all the relavent stats, that way I can choose matchups without opening the "Bigleaguers" window every time I need info on someone...

You might also be able to snag good pitchers off of the WW or via trades late in the season from teams that are way over their IP. :-?

That's true but I am in first so I don't think anyone really wants to help me out...lately, they've only been letting through trades where I have to give up a lot...

The answer is right here on FBC

http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... hp?t=47543

ESPN also have a good possible starters page which has some useful stats.

Thanx. Didn't even realize the cafe would help me out here, but great resource! ESPN is pretty good too.

This is somewhat true but I would if it was me and the #1 team had a stud hitter to offer. You might need to pay more but you should still be able to pull something off.
