tied 7-7 final day. What do I do?

Postby shmolex » Sun Oct 01, 2006 1:00 am

Here's my situation: I'm tied 7-7 going into the last day of the playoffs. I hold ERA so a tie is good for me. Here's the important categories:

2B: losing by 1
K: losing by 1

CG: tied

For hitters, my opponent has decided to bench most of his players, and is only starting zimmerman, pujols, helton, and johjima.

For pitchers, he is starting moseley, baker, penn, villanueva, belisle, tejeda, and McGowan.

As for me, I have smoltz, webb, harden, and wade miller going tomorrow.

I dropped my closers to pick up a bunch of players whose games dont start until 1:00 PM PST. Zimmerman plays at 10:00 AM PST and Helton and Pujols start at 11:00.

Here's my question: I have LoDuca, cano, freddy sanchez, and lowell starting early games. These are 4 of my top 5 double hitters. Do I bench them for players who dont start until 1:00? If Pujols, Zimmerman, or Helton strike out once, I'll win since I can bench all my players. If they dont strike out, then I can play the 1:00 players.

Basically, do I risk losing my 4 best doublers to wait and see how my opponent does?

A couple of your top doubling guys havent been hitting many 2b's recently. You should start the 1:00 guys, 1 K between 3 hitters isnt exactly rare - especially when zimmerman has 120 on the year. You arent risking close to anything by benching your main double guys if it could mean the win.
