The All Star Game has come and gone, and now it is time to reassess our teams and depending on your league, scrape out a few wins to wrap up the interval, or start off an extended scoring period with a bang. Not so sure any of these guys are true "bang" potential, but all are owned in less than 50% of leagues and have something to merit their inclusion in this post.
Back in Motown after a 2000 mile trek to 5 ballparks out east, and the living is...hot and humid. Not really all that different from the East Coast. I've never been so hot as sitting in 106°/100% humidity conditions at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Be that as it may, it's time to look at who you can insert before the All-Star Break to help you get a leg up on the competition.
The final Saturday of my vacation, and thus, the last of these shortened posts about two start options. Must admit, I am jealous of the Orioles fans, getting to watch their home games in Camden Yards, one of the greatest ballparks it has been my pleasure to enter this past week. Comerica is nice, but this is how a ballpark should be built.
If this is Wednesday, I must be in Boston. I will be heading off to Fenway Park in a bit, but wanted to get the Thursday Pitch and Ditch options out before taking in the splendor of the American League's oldest ballpark. More to come for the weekend tomorrow.
An early word of caution: I am on vacation, hitting 5 stadiums from Pittsburgh (last night) to Baltimore in 10 days. Thus, my usual Insightful (?) commentary will be limited at this point, until I reach a point on the trek with better wifi and the time to write.
This will be short and sweet. Just want to get your Thursday options in, limited as it (yes, as in one) may be. I will edit this tomorrow time permitting after the Tiger/St.Louis afternoon game, as I am preparing to go on a 5 stadium tour for my summer vacation.
I was amazed at how many pitchers I would not want on my team this week. Bad recent outings, lack of consistency, low strike out rates...all reasons to avoid the final tier. Let's take a look at top two tiers, and dissect what there is to like and what you want to avoid.
Time again to pencil in your Head to Head starting pitchers, and while there are not as many as in past weeks, there are still enough options to populate a rotation. Not all are great options, I will grant you, but that's why you come to this site week after week. Here goes.
To help you prepare for the rigors of the end of week 10, here are the best options I could locate to stream into and out of your lineups while you strive to dominate or at least outscore your competitors. All the pitchers below are owned in less than 50% of leagues, so they may be available for your use this weekend.
It's getting dicey out there in fantasy baseball land, with Doc Halladay and Jered Weaver going DL. Still, plenty of decent options for the savvy owner. Let's take a look at what this coming week has to offer, shall we?
