Here is the situation to something you should always look for: Annoyingly your backup outfielder is getting the day off (meaning his team has a game, he is just not playing because of a platoon or for rest) on the same day one of your starters is also getting the day off. The two players are Curtis Granderson and Jonny Gomes let's say.
You might think it doesn't matter whether you sit both, start Granderson and bench Gomes, or start Gomes and bench Granderson but the best thing to do is start Gomes in this situation. Playing in the National League, Gomes has a better chance of entering the game late as a pinch-hitter. Also if it is ever between two AL or two NL players, choose the faster one since he would have a better chance of entering as a pinch-runner.
The little things add up.
