start foppert this week?

foppert gets two starts - one at philly, and one against cincinatti at home. my other option is wade miller, but he only has one start and hasn't looked too sharp lately. what do you guys think?

Foppert hasn't exactly set the world on fire either...

I wouldn't do it. Philadelphia and Cincinnatti are 2 offensive powerhouses. Those two teams don't involve themselves in a great number of pitching duels. My bet is they both get like 4 or 5 runs off the kid.

Start Miller over Foppert. Foppert is an unproven guy, who has only had one previous major league start, in which he got schellacked. Miller is a top 20-top 25 starter that you should be starting 99% of the time, with the possible exception being Coors Field starts. Miller should pull it together; I think the problem might be the entire Astros team struggling right now, with Oswalt also off to a bad start.
