I do have a specific question that I would like to ask. I would have asked this in the chat today.
H2H playoffs… I could really use your help in ranking the following pitchers.
Also, is there a clear break-point in the ranking? I have spent way too much time analyzing this. Depending on my opponent I need to play 2 or 3 of them.

Yarbrough @ LAA
Reynaldo Lopez vs KC (his FB velo was 94.9 yesterday)
Julio Urias @ BAL and @ NYM
Pineda vs WAS
Eovaldi @ TOR

I appreciate your advice!
