I am back in Detroit, and out of the Northern woods of Minnesota and Canada. Caught enough fish to last me for the rest of the year, and now I'm ready to return to posting on the Fantasy Alarm site. Here are this upcoming week's two start pitchers for your consideration.
Week 7 is shaping up as a very good week to plug in some tier two starters in your lineups. I am even willing to start some of the bottom dwellers in the second tier, just because I believe in their potential to bounce back from some shaky recent work. Which ones? Read on to find out.
Week 4 arrives, and as the season moves toward the end of the first month, we are beginning to see rotations settle in, allowing us to make some assumptions about Starting Pitchers that have relevance in the fantasy world. As I have the past couple of years, I will be looking at two start options each week, attempting to guide you to victory in your Head to Head leagues, or accumulate stats or points in your various leagues.
Before we get to the 2 Start Options for this upcoming scoring period, a moment of silence for my loss...of BFBC, TT edition. Should have known Colon's production was too good to be natural, but losing him for the rest of the season truly hurts. Been scrambling all week to find a suitable replacement, some of whom are in the second tier below. Anythehoo, let's get to it.
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.
Another week, another set of two start pitchers to choose from. Many fine options this week, and we're back to in-league as opposed to inter-league play. Don't know how you feel about that part of modern baseball, but you need to adapt, with the move of Houston to the AL next season. Besides, how will St. Louis fans have an opportunity to boo Pujols without inter-league play? Anyhoo, on to the pitching options for this upcoming week.
With the end of the first month of baseball getting set to wind up in the next few days, it is a good time to reevaluate our rosters, and as this blog is about starting pitching, I want to encourage you to cut the dead wood now. Those pitchers in the bottom chart are not worth a roster spot at this point in the season, and if you continue to start them, dire consequences will ensue. So long as your league allows it, I suggest the use of a disciplined cut and add philosophy. Now, with that in mind, who do I like this week? Read on, my droogies.
