Last week I picked up the obviously red hot Indians pitching staff because I play on MLB.com where I choose an entire pitching staff. I already have San Francisco's pitching staff, who have been average at best. Now Week 4 is coming to an end and I have to decide whether or not to start Cleveland of the Giants. Here are their records and stats:
Indians are : 13-7, have lost the last 2 games by no more than 2 runs, have a combined ERA of 3.70. Their starters have ERAs of 1.46, 1.71, 2.33, 4.85, and 5.76
And the Giants: 10-10, combined ERA of 3.69, Lincecum haha, and their starters are 2.70, 3.13, 3.42,6.23, and 7.79
Now obviously stats wise, the Indians are doing much better but they obviously don't have odds on their side and they can collapse at any moment. It would be a gamble to start them but they are still playing really well, much better than the Giants. What do you think?
