Playoff pitching

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

Playoff pitching

Postby callmemaybin » Fri Sep 01, 2017 11:19 am

In my league's (6x6 H2H Categories, 5 starting pitchers) semi-finals this upcoming week, my options are:

Pick 5:

Kluber
Strasburg
Verlander
Severino
Corbin
Salazar
Nelson



I'm obviously starting Kluber, Stras and Verlander. Corbin's been hot, so I feel like I should probably start him too.

Severino faces a tough Texas lineup, but I feel like he's looked a little shakier of late.

Salazar's coming back from the DL, and if he starts Tuesday as planned it looks like he'll be in line for two starts. But will he be as sharp as he was after his last DL stint, or the hot garbage he was in the first half?

Thoughts?

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

I would lean toward Severino. Outside of the stinker against the Red Sox, he has pitched well over the past two months.
12-teamer, H2H, points, 4 keepers.
Hitters: +1 single, +2 dbl, +3 trpl, +4 HR, +1 RBI, +1 run, +1 BB/HBP, -1 K, +2 SB, -1 CS
Pitchers: +1.5 IP, +1 K, -1 BB/HBP, +5 W, -3 L, +4 S, -2 BS, +3 CG, +10 shutout
Start one player at each position + utility, 4 SPs, 2 RPs. 8 reserves.
