Bench Carpenter and Greinke? (WHIR!)

Postby GiantFanatic » Sat Jun 11, 2011 5:43 pm

So, trying to figure out if I should bench all my SPs tonight. Currently leading all the pitching categories in this week's matchup, with only his Porcello vs Sea tomorrow night still to go. I already benched Morrow (thank god) and Garza, wondering if I should also bench Greinke and Carpenter.

Current pitching scoring is as follows:

Stats - W / SV / SO / ERA / WHIP
Me - 5 / 4 / 54 / 2.75 / 1.10
Him - 3 / 1 / 41 / 3.46 / 1.30

Tough call... I think I have saves locked down up by 3 with my Bailey/Soria/Papelbon vs his Melancon/Axford. However, I'm a little worried he'll somehow get a Win from an RP. Also, not sure if he'll pull his ERA/WHIP down and screw me. Flip side is that starting Greinke vs STL or Carpenter vs MIL could implode on me and lose me ERA/WHIP?

Thoughts? Do I risk it to lock down Wins or dare him to beat me and bench all my starters? He's used all his pick-ups this week, so I'm just facing Porcello now.

Leave a link and I'll reply in kind.
