I do! I have he and Lester going today to try to keep me firmly slotted in the playoffs.
your confidence is enough to push me towards starting him.
When in doubt, I usually start my guy. In my mind, if he's good enough to be on my team, he's almost always good enough to start. My logic behind this is that a good start can positively influence 4 categories (ERA, WHIP, K, W), while a bad one can only negatively influence 2 (ERA, WHIP) and can occasionally get some Ks or even a W in rare situations. Also, i that league, my hitting is excellent and my pitching is not, so I have a lot of Karstens-esque pitchers on my roster.
