FAQ -Click here.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.

$ 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, $4 is about the 'average' start. Anything above $0 is 'better than nothing' but may be suboptimal in leagues with IP or GS limits. Please see FAQ for $ targets for other league formats.
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 5x5.
Two Start $ Avg
Equivalent $ Value of One Start
Own% - Based on ownership within the Razzball Commenter Leagues which consists of 84 12-team MLB leagues using the standard ESPN roster format.
