I have Hudson and Lester playing today. Should I play both? Sit one? Both?
I would play both.
Lester should be able to tough out the W in what will be a low-scoring game.
Hudson will probably get the W, but Carlos Gonzalez will make it tough.
Hey Muntra, Wunder
love the new layout on the web site, gonna take some getting used to though. Like where’s the chat room at, and I must have gotten here just when they were changing it because one minute it was the old site and then it was this new one. I thought I had accidentally went to another page.
Anyway, need a couple of 2 start pitchers, who who you recommend? Bard, Wandy, or others along that level. And is Vogelsong a 2 start because I keep getting that he is and then when I go to get him he’s not. Please help
You can check out how WunderChad ranked the SPs for this week http://www.beastdome.com/fantasy-baseball-week-ahead-week-7
In my opinion, Carlos Zambrano, Felix Doubrount, and Daniel Bard all make for some nice sleeper options if you need a 2 start pitcher. In that order.
Wandy with how hot he is pitching now can be ranked ahead all of them.
Chat should be back soon, still making some adjustments.
Thanks for the patience Rev.
