Why the split?

Thomson's K's that much better? I play in a points format...

No, he doesnt really K all that much better. I just think Thomson is a pitcher more suited towards matchup exploiting if your pitching depth is good enough to occasionally bench either of them. Particularly pitching at home he is more likely to get the Win, Ala W=10points on average in most points leagues, helping you more in weekly points formats than Roto which is usualy yearly cumilative stat compilation.

Somewhat along the lines of I feel Maddux is more likely to consistently week to week help you in ERA & WHIP primarily with K's and W's as a slight bonus where as Thomson isnt as consistent but is more probable to get W's and slightly better K totals for some of his Home matchups.

Honestly, I didnt even analyze it too in depth when replying to this thread before you asked. I just went with my first instinct answering.

I'm probably getting too anal retentive with my prognosis as my yearly projections for both of them results in a very small decimal number for both if you break it down to a game bye game difference with them.
