Streamonator Info:

Razzball Streamonator (aka Stream-o-Nator, Stream-o-nater, Streamonater):  This tool is designed to identify attractive short-term pitcher pickups – aka fantasy baseball streamers/streaming pitchers.  It could also be used to determine when to start/sit a pitcher on your roster. The higher the $ value, the more attractive the start.  Streamonator projections rely on Steamer Rest of Season projections as a foundation and then adjust based on several game-specific factors that include opponent strength vs. the pitcher’s handedness, whether the start is home or away and park factors.

What Is The Expected Accuracy Of Streamonator Projections?:  Please see the Razzball Ombotsman for correlations between the Streamonator projections and actual stats.

Filtering Results:  You can filter multiple fields at the same time.  The text fields below the column headers enable several methods for filtering the data.  Here are some examples:

Function Symbol Example Explanation
ANY MATCH ‘B’ in Pos Typing B in Pos will filter to any player with 1B, 2B, or 3B eligibility.  Type in more details to filter further – e.g., “1B’, “1B, 3B”, etc.
OR | Ruth|Aaron in ‘Name’ All players with Ruth or Aaron in their name
NOT ! !FM in ‘Halls’ All players who are not in both the Hall of Fame and the Hall of Merit
NOR ! | !F|M in ‘Halls’ All players who are not in the Hall of Fame NOR the Hall of Merit.  Just use the ! once.
GREATER THAN > >30 in $ All players whose $ is greater than 30
LESS THAN < <30 in $ All players whose $ is less than 30
GREATER THAN OR EQUAL TO >= >=30 in $ All players whose $ is greater than or equal to 30
LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO <= <=30 in $ All players whose $ is less than or equal to 30

Position Eligibility - 20 Games in last season for ESPN and ’2 Catcher’ formats.   5 Games for Yahoo.

Pitchers Included: All probable pitchers for up to the next 7 days.  Pitchers with two starts are listed twice.

$ Values - A pitcher’s projected stats for their start are multiplied by 30 then valued for a 12-team MLB league using the ESPN/CBSSports roster format (13 hitters, 9 pitchers) and a $260 team budget.  While the $ values would vary for any other league format, we would expect the rankings to remain relatively the same.  For 12-team leagues, $8 is about the ‘average’ start.  Anything above $0 is ‘better than nothing’ but may be suboptimal in leagues with IP or GS limits.

Own%  Based on ownership within the Razzball Commenter Leagues which consists of 64 12-team MLB leagues using the standard ESPN roster format.

1-start vs. 2-start calculator - The below chart equates the average $ value of a 2-start pitcher’s two starts to a one-start pitcher’s start for weekly leagues.  So if a 2-start pitcher averages $4 in value across his two starts, that is the equivalent of a single start that is worth $7.  This is based on standard 5×5.

Two Start $ Avg Equivalent $ Value of One Start
1 0.5
2 2.6
3 4.7
4 6.9
5 9.0
6 11.1
7 13.2
8 15.4
9 17.5
10 19.6

Own%  Based on ownership within the Razzball Commenter Leagues which consists of 84 12-team MLB leagues using the standard ESPN roster format.

    Why does the SON hate my staff so much this week? ;-)

    Kluber @KC, McHugh vs. TB (those don’t seem so scary – much less cause them to be barely at the top 100 SP’s for the week?)

    Where is Alex Wood? Can’t find him anywhere.

    • Ignore this data for now. No clarity now on post-ASB pitchers.

    I can’t find his player page. Is there a search function outside of the SoN?

    • Yes, look top right of page for the search box. Worst case, google “player name razzball”

    Any insight into why the system never gives Sonny Gray a nice value? $7.60 for his next start is the highest I can remember.

    • @Tbone: I’ve answered this like a 100 times. Steamer doesn’t see Gray as an ace because his BB/9 is mediocre (3.2), his K-rate is good but not great (7.8), and his HR-rate and BABIP rates are hard to maintain. He’s obviously ownable/startable in all formats now.

        @Rudy Gamble: Thanks for the explanation. Sorry that I missed the other explanations…searched for it here, but no further.

        • no prob. probably should create a “Rudy explains SON rating about pitchers’ page :)
