Wow that was an absolutely horrible outing. He couldn’t control his curve whatsoever and they just sat on his fastball. Wonderful start for us playoff teams.

I assume people are sitting him today versus the Indians considering his last start?

Not a chance.

7 IP with 0 BB vs one of the better lineups in baseball....I realize last start was horrible but overall skill wise he's made incredible progress since the trade.

This guy is my biggest/toughest decision this week. I have him in 3-4 weekly roto leagues and have to decide if I’m going to start or sit him. He’s scheduled @ Texas and @ Toronto. I could really use the k’s and potential W’s, but I really don’t trust him and can’t afford an ERA/WHIP massacre. Anyone else facing this dilemma and have any thoughts on those matchups?

I wouldn't touch him no matter the matchups if I'm in a tight race for first combined with a tight race in ERA and/or WHIP. Yes, he's improved quite a bit late this season, but that absolute ratio-torching meltdown a couple weeks ago shows that he's still capable of a season-altering clunker at any time, without warning. If you've got some cushion in roto in ERA/WHIP, then absolutely, I'd roll the dice. But unfortunately I'm not in such a position, so starting him isn't a consideration.

Well said. That’s the logical thinking I needed to see. I’m benching on my 1st and 2nd place teams and will roll the dice with my 4th and 6th place teams.

To make this decision a little easier, consider that he plays better at home than away and both of his starts are on the road this week. I almost started himself in my championship matchup, but took him out after seeing his drastic home/away splits so far this season.

Guy has one bad start over the past month and everyone panics?

 

Start him, Texas has a terrible lineup, and they are last in the division. Furthermore, the Rays have been red hot lately.

 

You know what happens if he has a mediocre start? You spot start at the end of the week like you'd have to anyway for benching a starter in the playoffs.

 

Fortune favors the bold.

Amen. I'm starting...although admittedly a little anxious about it. Outside of his start vs Toronto, which I think he learned a ton from, he has been great since being traded to Tampa.

That 10 o/u makes him an easy pass for me tomorrow. Too risky 

Huh?

This guy good now?

Both the Astros and Rays among a few others want pitchers with good fastballs to throw it high.

 

He has control issues from time to time but is otherwise good.
