2000 Pedro... Milacki's not much better at 100% anyway...

2000 pedro without a doubt.  Milacki isn't that much better anyway and will fatigue with every pitch.

as it turns out, it didn't matter, as my guys took out the series in Game #6!

But, seeing as the question was bouncing around in my head, I thought I would throw it out there to see what others thought.  I was leaning toward Pedro, as fatigue into the 80's always scares me....but given the +HR park, was questioning my thought process.

Thanks to those who shared!

If you think Pedro will remain at 100% through the 6th inning you need to play a few games LIVE.  By the  end of the 6th Pedro is usually down into the low- to mid-80s, high 80s if he's being efficient, maybe low 90s if he's having his best start of the season.  SPs, regardless of IP/G and other pitch/game modifiers, virtually always go down to 98 or 99% by the 2nd batter, and drop about 1% per hitter until they get down into the mid 80s, then they start to go down faster.
