2 SP going against each other...start them both?

Postby socceryank » Thu Jun 23, 2005 10:41 pm

Capuano vs Radke matched up against each other tomorrow and I have them both. Would you start them both, or just one (and which one)? Game is in Milwaukee.

I'm planning on starting both in my H2H league, but that is because I have the other guy dominated in ERA and WHIP already, and we're tied for wins and I'm up by two less losses.

If it is a low scoring game you could get a w and a no decision. Plus you may get a bunch of innings in a pitchers dual. It is prolly worth it. Although the ball was really carrying out today at Miller park against the cubs so you may want to be careful. The Brews are hot so they may hit Radke around a bit.

I usually start two guys against each other, of course other factors apply (What line-up, home or away, streaks.) I'd probably start Capuano, but be careful with Radke. Brewers hitting well

Early on in my points league, an owner benched both Randy Johnson and Halladay...(why? good question!). Anyway, they both pitched a complete game, which gives extra points in the league. And one of them (Halladay I think?) pitched a shutout...

Obviously this isn't the most likely scenario, but I'd go with both never know!!! ;-D

I usually start both guys, as chances are decent that one of them will come out with a win.

Of course, there is a flip-side to the Johnson-Halladay scenario, like when I started Patterson and Schmidt against each other back in May and they both got shelled.. :-/
