Play players just because they have a double header?

Postby Spokes » Sat May 01, 2004 3:19 am

I have guys like Hinske and Charles Johnson on my bench. Now, Johnson almost certainly won't play 2 games tommorrow, but the slumping Hinske might. Would you play him over guys like Kaz Matsui or Mark Loretta because he has a double header? Even if it is against a good lefty like Mark Bueherle? I also have Vartiek, Soriano, Mike Young and Teixiera so tommorrow will be a long day.

I've got three guys playing double headers tomorrow: Helton, David Ortiz, and Mags.

I'm salivating at the possibility of mass quantities of stats (20+ RBI??).

But then I think of the DOWNside--1/7 and 0/8's dragging down the average.

Knowing me, I'm going to play all three...

Well, I am in a points league, so any hit would help. Here is the lineup I am putting out there right now...
C: Varitek
1B: Teixiera
2B: Soriano
SS: Tejada
3B: Rolen
LF: Berkman
CF: B. Giles
RF: Huff
OF: Pierre
OF: Burrell
Util: Mike Young
Util: Loretta
Util: Kaz Matsui
On my bench, I have guys like Hinske, Charles Johnson, Milton Bradley (bit hurt right now), Hafner, Feliz. Now that you have my lineup, should I start Johnson or Hinske over anybody in this lineup on Saturday?
I am sorry this has kind of turned in to a "who to start" question.

im my situation (H2H league w/ no chance in winning AVG. and a slim lead in Rs and barely trailing in HRs and pretty far back in RBI) i gotta get as many at bats as possible so i picked up uribe and burnitz to hopefully get a little boost... if my average was higher i may not consider it but i can punt that this week at this point

I have:

Varitek
A. Jones
Damon
and I picked up Fullmer (have a hunch with him)

But, back to the question real quickly...
Would you start Hinske and/or Johnson over anyone in my lineup already tommrrow just because they have a double header?

Dudes, the guy wants some advice!!!!!!!

I would like start Hinske, probably over Kaz. If CJ is likely to start both games, I'd play him over Varitek.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
