Hi there lads.
I have a question for you: Im standing in first place in a 16-team H2H non-keeper league. Im 8 games ahead of the 2nd place, whom Im playing this week.
I began the week normally, yesterday I started Liriano and he played very well. But today I realized that my opponent has Felix Hernandez, Josh Johnson, Justin Verlander and Jaime Garcia going twice this week. He also has excellent pitchers in Oswalt, Kershaw and Porcello meaning I cannot beat him in WINS and STRIKEOUTS.
My staff: P. Hughes, C. Billingsley, F. Liriano, J. Niese, R.A. Dickey, T. Hunter, K. Medlen, T. Wood and T. Gorzelanny.
I really like them, last week I got 7 Wins and good peripherals from them, but I cant match my opponents ace this week. My question: should I punt Ws and Ks this week and start only my RPs Jonathon Broxton, Carlos Marmol and Brad Lidge in order to get the SVs, ERA and WHIP points?
Im pretty confident my batters are going to give 5 out of 5 points like they usually do. So in a worst case scenario I can beat him 6-4.
