Heading into the weekend, we have quite a few streaming options. Not all are worthy of consideration, depending on where the game is taking place or the opponent. The 20 starting pitchers listed below represent my best bets this week.
I really cannot believe how little owned Rick Porcello is this far into the season. Have fantasy players not been watching as his K rate has dramatically risen, and he pitches gem after gem? Remember, all the starting pitchers listed below are owned in les than 50% of leagues, thus are frequently available for streaming purposes.
Mid-May, and here's hoping we don't see anymore sub-50 degree days at the ballpark. Froze my butt off at the Tiger game this last weekend, then fried in the sun yesterday in the upper deck of Comerica Park. Plus, I was forced to watch my hometown heroes lose both games. No matter about that, let's see what there is for end of the week streaming purposes.
It worked well for me last week, so we will continue the two part Pitch & Ditch articles during mid-week. It helps to break up the information into easier digestible chunks, and keeps the information more timely. Win-Win, right?
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.
