Baseball is a game where it doesn’t matter how well you pitch, it’s how well you hit against opposing pitchers. This week’s trend is to look at guys who have to do all the work themselves and get nothing from their teammates. It’s frustrating as a fantasy supporter to watch your ace or other SP hurl 7 innings of 2 run ball and lose. Personally, I’m a huge fan of 1-0 nothing games I don’t think there is anything more exciting than a well played chess match of a game. Here are your week 23 two start pitchers fantasy baseball. Good luck in your H2H playoffs if they are happening!
Jordan Zimmermann (NyM vs. Pelfrey) (Fla vs. Volstad)
Mets’ offense is atrocious. Zimmermann looks to be the goods. Hope he sucks, so I can get him on the cheap next year, probably not going to happen.
Jason Vargas (@Oak vs. Anderson) (@Ana vs. Haren)
Pantyhose have more runs than the Mariners. Great ERA, goes at least 6 innings. Decent pitching goes unnoticed when people don’t look past the number of wins.
Jhoulys Chacin (Cin vs. Cueto) (Ari vs. Kennedy)
2 ER in last 19 innings. Is going to be way overhyped next year. .187 BAA vs. RH, that’s pretty effective. If he can keep his walks in check he has the make up and lineup to help ya.
Jake Westbrook (@Mil vs. Gallardo) (@Atl vs. Hanson)
Another run support victim. 5 out of 6 quality starts for the Cards. Doesn’t wow you with anything, your typical lunch pail pitcher 6IN, 3 ER.
Carlos Carrasco (@Ana vs. Haren) (Min vs. Liriano)
Rookie is getting his shot, looks to be in line for a rotation spot next year. Changeup is a plus pitch. Needs time to get innings under belt. Next year’s Chacin.
Nelson Figueroa (@ ChC vs. Silva) (LA vs. Kershaw)
Showing geriatrics everywhere that it’s possible. It’s a shame that MLB has banned him from wearing his Life Alert on the mound. Since becoming a rotation fixture 5 ER in 23 IN.
Chris Volstad (@Phi vs. TBD)(@Was vs. Zimmermann)
Just when he starts to get rosterable he craps the bed and you forget about him. Is a WHIP disaster so you are really only chasing wins here, ERA a run higher on the road, yikes.
Ian Kennedy (SF vs. Bumgarner) (@Col vs. Chacin)
One good start out his last 10 and he gets talked about. That’s why baseball is awesome. You can be good 3 out of 10 time and you’re an All star. Arizona may cut his innings after these 2, or they should.
