If i sit my entire lineup (obviously foregoing any opportunity at SB) i would pretty much make it impossible for him to catch up with any of those cats. i figure he would need to bat about .600 with some serious power to overtake my .335/.975, right?
The numbers can all be caught if you sit, although it wouldn't be easy. I personally believe in playing the game. Chances are a fewof your star players will be sitting anyway, as will your opponent's. play the game. Be a Man :)

forget being a man, i want to be a winner. the way i see it, his odds at catching me in R, RBI, and HRs, assuming i bench my team, is pretty damn hard... id say... 8% (completely arbitrary). The odds at him catching my %s (BA and OPS) are also pretty low if i sit my team. However, if i play my team, i can almost count on my daily averages being below .335 and .975, reducing my weekly averages and thus, making it easier for him to catch up to those cats.
You need to take a look at stat tracker and view the weekly Hits/ABs for both teams. Then determine how lousy your team would have to hit to lose a .025 lead in BA and a .075 lead in OPS. Assume that your opponents team will either hit .310/.900 (their current weekly pace) or .335/.975 (your current weekly pace).
If you calculate that your team could bomb (4/40 with 4 singles) and you still win the categories in which you hold a lead...start your entire team. Otherwise...consider only starting your .300+ hitters and/or base stealers (guys with 8 or more SBs thus far this season).
Personally...I would probably start all my hitters anyway. Hitters going 0fer and having an off day doesn't hurt you like a pitcher having an off day and getting "Mazzaro'd" (or Bumgarner'd).

a 14 Run 6 HR 15 RBI day would be nearly impossible. a much better possibility would be my team meeting his team in the middle and me losing BA or OPS. btw his team only has 20 r 6 hr and 23 rbi, thus he'd basically have to do what in 1 day, what his entire team has done in 6 days.
