AJ Burnett vs Verlander

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

AJ Burnett vs Verlander

Postby bravo0919 » Mon May 24, 2010 12:53 pm

1 pt per K
-1 per BB
10pts win
7.5 qs
- 1 per ER

2 starters per week
#1 starter is Wainwright

#2. Either Burnett or Verlander?
Burnett has not been great recently and Verlander is heating up

Burnett - vs Minny (Baker) and Cleveland ( Masterson)

Verlander - Sea (Fister)

Leaning towards Burnett and a good chance for 2 Wins

In a vacuum, I like Verlander more, but Burnett having two starts is obviously the x-factor. Cleveland and Seattle's offenses cancel each other out, but the Twins are good obviously. I personally would go with Verlander regardless, but if you need the extra start, then roll the dice on AJ.

Verlander vs. Seattle is too good not to start.

I like Burnett this week but he is just as likely to take a big dumpski this week and walk 10 batters.

Roll with JV. Seattle is awful and Verlander is not.

24 Pts on a perfect day from Verlander


20+ Pts with the potential for 35+ from Burnett

I would go with Burnett.
