I'm starting him. Even if he gives up 5 runs, it isn't going to ruin my season. I want his K totals. If I miss out on 12 K's because I didn't start him I'd kick myself. My staff can afford a Prior start at Coors.
About Chacon, yes pitching at Coors half the time is a scary thought, but I saw a post referring to him pitching in HS in Colorado. If that is true, I believe it is possible he may have an inherent edge on pitching at altitude if he has grown up pitching at altitude.
High altitude training is used by runners and other atheletes, so I guess the concept could translate to pitching in some form. I'm not saying Chacon is going to be a stud at Coors, pitching there is still scary, but I'm curious to see how he handles it.
