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.
