Who to Start Message Board
I am in a H2H league where my opponent will win IP, OUTS (I know...terrible category) and probably Ks if I don't pitch him. There is nobody on my team I could drop for a pitcher. The Yankees KILL lefties! I am scared!

The free agent pool is really dried up since this league has some pretty astute managers.
against one of the hardest hitting teams in what appears to be a hugely hitter-friendly ballpark (ie pads all their hitters' stats)?
i'd bench him.
but then again i'm playing tommy hanson on sunday completely on spec. so what do i know lol!
im pretty torn in this too
i'd say if you're in a rotisserie league just bench him, if he does well it's not that big of a deal to miss one good start
and if he does bad well you missed out on that
if you're in a h2h league just start him
I have the same problem too. I don't think I'm going to start him given how well the yankees are playing and they are in NY. I can see a lot of pitches and short amount of innings in this one. I hope that I'm wrong though.
