H2H 7x7 with L and CG. SP,SP,RP,RP,P, P, P, shallow rosters, daily transactions.
I'm looking at my first matchup, and I should do well in L, ERA, WHIP, and SV, lose K outright, be close in W, CG is a toss up. Thats 4-1 with the other 2 up in the air. That gives me good results in the pitching cats. I should do well in all hitting cats so that would give me the overall matchup.
My question is should start my #5 and 6 starters? Thats Westbrook (3.38) and Garcia (3.81). Neither will give me near enough K's to contend, they could get me a W or two, but they could also hurt me by raising my ERA or WHIP enough to lose it.
Right now I'm leaning towards giving them the ball -- neither is playing in Coors -- but I could just ride my top starters and relievers, and try to minimize my exposure.
Is this type of tinkering with matchups a resonable approach in trying to maximize weekly results, or is it better to just let them play? They could help to balance out any bad starts from my aces, and I dont think either of them are bad SPs.
