Here, we will analyze five players to start and five players to let ride the bench. We will be separating them into five categories: Starting Pitcher, Hitter, Reliever, Youngster and a Bonus player.
Starting Pitcher to Start
Normally, I would be one to criticize the New York Mets. But there's one person who certainly doesn't appear as though he will have any colossal meltdowns in the near future, and his name is Mike Pelfrey.
For all those fantasy owners who don't know, Pelfrey is quietly flying under the radar in fantasy leagues around the net, going 3-0 with a ridiculous 0.86 ERA through three games to begin the 2010 campaign. Coming off his latest start against the Chicago Cubs (seven innings of shutout baseball), Pelfrey looks like the guy to stick in the rotation in Week Four.
To add on to Pelfrey's hot streak, leadoff hitter and shortstop Jose Reyes is now back with the team, only bolstering the middle infield defense and the batting order. With the way Pelfrey is throwing, it's hard not to start him next week...
