Last outing: 120 pitches and began to really lose it at the very end(only 76 were strikes)

TORONTO:
.858 OPS vs Righties
.881 OPS at Home

SOSA won't be playing.

DELGADO loves interleague.

My other pitchers:
K. Brown
G. Meche
K. Lohse
J. Santana
O. Dotel
A. Benitez
E. Gagne
D. Baez

Currently (2nd best hitting, 2nd best pitching) 1st place overall out of 9

Things in his favor:
6 days rest (over the typical 5)
Beat the Yankees in his last time out

What do you think?

Tough call. Don't forget that Woody Williams went 8 innings, 1 hit. 1 walk, 0 er against them.

Whichever way you go, I wouldn't blame you.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Doesn't matter what kind of league you are in, you never sit a guy like Wood. The day you sit him he will get 15 k's and throw a gem. What you are doing is called micro managing and more often than not you get burned by it. Don't sit Wood.

I told you I was the fantasy expert, why don't you guys listen... I said bench Kerry Wood; I did and it paid off.

I have no idea. I don't watch football. I just play FANTASY...

You had a 50% chance of being right. Even a blind squirrel finds a acorn once in awhile.

Hey I gave FULL reasoning... I would not have started this post had I not had faith in a poor outing by Wood.

I was willing to be bold and risk my reputation to let you guys know that You should bench Wood.

yawn, use the 50-50-90 it usually works.

If you have a 50-50 chance , 90 % of the time your wrong.
