Coming to you from the lovely Keweenaw Peninsula area of northern Michigan (aka the UP), here is this Saturday's installment of Two Start Pitchers for Week 18. Since I am on something of a deadline, having to wrap this up before brunch and then an afternoon wedding, let's just get to it.
Sorry to say, there are not exactly a wealth of streaming options for the very end of the week. Still, the options are decent, as you shall see below.
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?
As you can see, in Part 2 of this week's Pitch & Ditch we have 11 more SPs to recommend over the final two days at the end of the period. Now that's a lot of options this week, and while I cannot promise all will be gems, at least you have more of an opportunity to get some pitching goodness at the end of the week.
I am going to break this week's Pitch & Ditch into two articles, partially due to the large number of Starting Pitchers owned in less than 50% of leagues that I feel are worth a shot, and partially due to my having tickets for 3 Tigers games this week. Now if only this heat wave would break, especially with a Thursday afternoon game coming up...not that I am complaining about getting to see the Tigers take on the Angels with Trout, Trumbo and Pujols all smacking the ball around.
Sorry about the late publication, but the phone company was fixing my land line service yesterday, and managed to shut down all my internet and cable as well. In any case, here are the two pitch options for next week.
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.
