Matchup info.

Postby Knighthammer » Thu Mar 24, 2005 9:51 pm

As you can see I'm a rook. Most of you have said that I had a good draft & have made decent trades/pickups. I thank all of you have helped me.

I read many of your threads and see a lot of talk about matchups. Where can I find the kind of info that would tell me that would tell me why I might want to start Jr. over Pierre on a given day? Do you just look at the righty/lefty situation or are there other reasons?

The quality of the opposing pitcher is normally the first thing I look at. Lefty/righty matchups, then players visiting major hitters parks, then hot/cold players would be my normal progression through making a change.

Ok, remember, the only stupid questions are those that are not asked. ;-7 With that in mind, I can figure out quality pitchers, lefty/righty matchups & hot & cold players. I don't suppose there is a list of major hitters parks is there? I know Wrigley when the wind blows out & Coors because of thin air.
