Need OF help for Sunday, May 13th

Postby IcarusAdam » Sat May 12, 2012 10:35 pm

OK, here's my OF options for tomorrow and their pitching match-ups:

-PIT Andrew McCutchen (HOU Rodriguez)
-PHI Shane Victorino (SD Suppan)
-ChC Bryan LaHair (MIL Estrada)
-ARI Justin Upton (SF Zito)

League: head-to-head points, singles, doubles, triples, HRs, RBIs, BBs, Ks, SBs

Going by the stat lines, it's not even a question to start McCutchen and Victorino, since Cutch is starting to get hot, and the Flyin' Hawaiian has been incredibly consistent despite an inconsistent Phillies line-up. The real dilemma here is whether to start LaHair or Upton. Comparing the two players side-by-side, LaHair has been the better hitter. But Upton has a good match-up against Zito (who doesn't?), and is 5/20 lifetime against him, plus Zito is starting his descent into... well, being the Zito we all know and love. Plus, Upton has to turn it around at some point... right?

Those are just my thoughts, but if you have a different set of fielders you'd like to suggest, feel free.

I think you need to ride Upton here. You should never bench your stud unless he is hurt, because you'll kick yourself if he goes off. LaHair has been hitting very well recently, but I'd rather have all 3 of those other OF options starting on any given day.
