Start P. Maholm@WAS?

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Start P. Maholm@WAS?

Postby RossnSC » Tue Aug 21, 2012 7:27 am

I have Wainwright vs Houston(no brainer) but P Malhom vs Nats doesn't seem like a good start to keep my WHIP & ERA down. Thoughts? My opponent already has 2 W's, 9 K's and 3.60 ERA & 1.13 WHIP. No one is pitching for him today and Milone vs MIN tomorrow. I have Shields vs KC and Miley vs MIA tomorrow.

Tough call because he's pitched so well lately. I think I'd sit him in your league...

Maholm has been a stud for the last two months, forget that he's Paul Maholm. He was the 8th overall pick in 2003 so he's got stuff, and it's been working lately. Throw him out there.

If Maholm gives you good WHIP, ERA, and a few K's who cares if he gets the win? Do you only get a certain number of starts per week?

Even so, I don't see why Maholm can't win this one 2-1 or 3-2 or something similar. He's been keeping his walks down, his K's have been decent and he's only given up more than 3 earned run once since June 12. What's not to like?

Good luck whatever ya do.
