6 teams loaded up on starting pitching yesterday to finish off their allowable starts.The Vincibles (Cracking The WHIP)
Grey mentioned in his borderline starters post (http://razzball.com/borderline-fantasy- ... s-week-26/
) that Friday was a good day for streaming, and, (I know this will surprise you) he was right! I actually won a (public) league last year by starting 8 pitchers on the last day of the season, so I've been anxious to try it again this year. Grey also said that the last day is a good day for streaming, as players have already checked out, but I can't wait that long!
I had no pitchers starting Friday, so I had to pick up 9.
Since my ERA/WHIP going in was 3.858/1.307, I'm obviously very happy with 2.90/1.11. My ERA is now a season best 3.826. My WHIP dropped to 1.300. I gained a point in Ks and half a point in Wins. Unfortunately, my hitting (6/32, 0 HR/0 RBI) lost me a point.Prague Defenestrators (The Beer League)
The Defenestrators jumped into the title hunt in The Beer League, gaining 4 points and pulling to within 1 of the lead. They were fortunate enough to have their 5th round pick, Jered Weaver, to build around. Weaver pitched another fine game, but failed to win #19.Afghanistan Buzkashi (RCL 7)
Stretched their lead in the tight RCL 7 from 2 to 5.5 points Friday. Despite an amazing 2.15/0.79 ERA/WHIP, they only managed 2 wins. Unfortunately, they lost their #2 starter to a rainout.
The Buzkashi lowered their ERA from 3.627 to 3.574 and their WHIP dropped to 1.211 from 1.226.
Simply Fred (ECFBL)
Being in the toughest league, Fred didn't have as many good pitchers to choose from as some of us.SF Champs (Slam and Legs Special)
The Champs were trying to solidify their hold on 2nd place, but Pomeranz and Stewart blew up their ERA and WHIP.WoodyPaige AllStars (Ones are GOOD right?)
Tony's bad luck continued, as he lost his #1 starter to a postponement.
I also wrapped up a team on Wednesday:The Jets (RCL 33)
I guess there was a reason Ohlendorf was 0% owned.
