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

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.

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.

    Hey Rudy,

    Need someone to plug in at 2b for Week 11 in a CBS weekly league.
    Who do you like out of Infante, Aybar, Aviles, Walker, Dozier and Elliot?

    Which week 11 stream – Gio @ Coors OR Yoga @ MIA, @ CIN – Is the biggest car crash waiting to happen?

    why does stream-o-nator like Haren so much this week? based on his xfip v. era?

    • @Dan: Yes, I have found that Steamer likes Haren more than I do because of xFIP given he pounds the strike zone (1.62 BB/9) and has a solid K-rate (8 K/9). I think (as do most fantasy baseballers) that Haren just gets hit hard these days and his ERA feels the brunt – similar to Joe Blanton.

      He’s also helped by pitching against a poor offense (Mets) in a pitchers park (Citi Field).

      This might be an okay stream but I’m not touching it…

    Does anybody know when in the day this gets updated?

    • @Curious: Between 9-11AM EST on weekdays and usually same time on weekends.

    I don’t see Chae Anderson in here. Does anyone know why/what the rules are on when a pitcher is listed?

    • @Question: it’s based on whether he’s noted as a probable starter in the next 7 days. according to my source – as of this morning – Anderson was not due for a start. MLB probable pitchers are noting he pitches Sunday (my source had said Arroyo). This might be resolved tomorrow morning (this re-runs every morning).

        @Rudy Gamble:
        Thanks. This is a great tool and I use it a lot.

        • Thanks. Ever since I got married, I’ve had a marked reduction in the number of compliments on my tool!
