Best Two Start Pitchers for Next Week

Postby Guest » Fri Aug 23, 2002 6:20 pm

Who do you think has the best chance of performing well next week?

Carlos E. Hernandez 8/27, SD (D. Tankersley) 9/1, LA (O. Daal)
John Lackey 8/27, TB (V. Zambrano) 9/1, BAL (J. Stephens)
Joe Roa 8/27, MON (M. Yoshii) 9/1, @NYM (A. Leiter)

Based on my pitching lineup below, is it worth dropping either Andy Bense, Damian Moss or Randy Wolf to pick up Hernandez, Lackey or Roa?

Pitching Lineup:

Lidle, Cory OAK P
Benes, Andy STL P
Moss, Damian ATL P
Johnson, Randy ARI P
Halladay, Roy TOR P
Prior, Mark CHC P
Wolf, Randy PHI P
Julio, Jorge BAL P
Urbina, Ugueth BOS P

Hmm... Maybe we should ask you to write some sleepers for us... ;-D

All three of the 2-start pitchers you're considering are good options, although they're obviously not can't-miss picks. Of those three, I like Lackey the most for next week, but it's very close.

The trouble is, your regular staff is excellent, so you may not want to tamper with it. In the end, it comes down to your needs: if you're in a tight whip or era race, stay put; if every win helps, drop Moss (again, which pitcher to drop is a very tough decision), and pick up Lackey.

Good luck!

Who do you of the following two start pitchers below has the best chance of performing next week (Sept. 2-8th)

Jason Jennings faces San Diego on the road and at home
Tomo Ohka faces against Philadelphia and in Atlanta

Based on my pitching lineup below, is it worth dropping either Andy Bense, John Lackey or Randy Wolf to pick up Ohka or Jennings?

Pitching Lineup:
Johnson, Randy ARI P
Lidle, Cory OAK P
Halladay, Roy TOR P
Prior, Mark CHC P
Urbina, BOS RP
Julio, BAL RP

Lackey, John ANA P one start next week at Batilmore
Benes, Andy STL P one start next week vs the Reds
Wolf, Randy PHI P one start at facing Montreal

My standing are as following. I'm a slim 0.5 points ahead of the 2nd place team in a 10 team 4x4 league. Here are my pitching statistics:

3rd in ERA (3.47) - 1st place has 3.38
1st in K (1047) - 2nd place has 1042
7th in S (69)
2nd in W (84) - 1st place has 91

What do you think? Thanks.

I think dropping Lackey for Ohka would be a good move.
