I am currently in 1st place. I am tied in WHIP with the 2nd place team. He has only relievers active today. My WHIP is only .002 points better than his, so it is very very close. That 1 single point, is a gain of 2 for my opponent, so I lose it, and suddenly, if 1 team collects more Steals than me, or another team collects 1 more RBI than me, then I finish 2nd place. I cannot gain or lose in K's. Only gain 1/2 point in wins.
So, Who would you start with WHIP being deciding factor towards a title.
1: Jason Verlander vs Miami
2: Matt Moore vs Toronto
3: Johnathan Niese vs Milwaukee
4: Tanner Roarke vs Arizona
I like the matchup for all these games. However, if any one blows up? I lose. I could lose a critical point in Whip, if his relievers outperform mine. I could lose a 1/2 point in Wins.
