If using a situational guy

By: Java



Designed to get the 1-3 hitters gets me to my starer in inning 2.  Then I can take that starer not to the 6th, but potentially to the 8th.

 

I think it also screws up a team that has stacked their lineup a certain way.  So great, you start your lefty and he other team loads up with righties.  Awesome.  After one inning you bring in your RH starter.  Paralyzes a manager early, forcing the matchup YOU like.

 

To me, this IS the very best option to go as deep into a game as possible.  I think the traditional way you are looking at a starter going 6.  In this way you could get 7 out of him.
