Another Joyous week of 2 start streaming is in the books. This week we have a bunch of lads that are up against it. Most of the options this week are being truly put to the test with some of their toughest match-ups to date. There are no gimmies this week and believe it or not Bronson Arroyo actually looks attractive this week, though only in a fantasy baseball way. The other options that are being added or talked about this week all get the Yankees and someone else, which is never a good thing especially who the other teams are. So stream carefully. Enjoy the week to come and if you need anything you know where to find me. (Please be aware that pitchers and match-ups change)
ONE START STREAMERS:
Josh Tomlin @ CHW – Humber
AJ Burnett @STL – Lynn
Jake Westbrook vs Pit – Bedard
Jeff Niemann vs Sea – Millwood
Ross Detwiler vs Ari – Kennedy
Drew Smyly vs CHW – Peavy
Jason Vargas vs Min – Marquis
Anthony Bass vs Mia – Johnson
TWO START OPTIONS:
Juan Nicasio (LAD vs Harang, Atl vs Beachy) Proving to be a good Road Scholar, offers you some decent K potential as well. No word on if his brother Jose Texas Instruments is an option this week.
Tommy Milone (@Bos vs Buchholz, @TB vs Moore) Gets his first start east of the Mississippi. The old man, the mighty miss. Unfortunately Bos and TB are playing the role of Dinkums and are going to pee all over his picnic basket.
Bronson Arroyo (CHC vs Volstad, @Pit vs Morton) Gotta love the match-ups here. Based on options this week it’s either bench some useful guys, stream some guys mid week if possible, or go with this guy. There is no D unfortunately.
Jason Hammel (@NYY vs Kuroda, @Bos vs Buchholz) The pride of Treasure Valley Community College, where their motto is bring a shovel because we are in a valley and there is treasure. From the outside looking in if you own him great job, give yourself a pat on the back. Now don’t stop until until May 17th when he can actually be used again.
J.A. Happ (NYM vs Dickey, STL vs Wainwright) The epic battle of R.A. vs J.A. for the world title of being the best initialed pitcher in the galaxy. Adam Wainwright sits in the corner stewing, waiting to take J.A’s lunch money.
Luke Hochevar (Det vs Wilk, NYY vs Hughes) Focus on the names of the match-ups. Not the line-ups for a second…ok I don’t blame you for saying that. Or that, or that…. OK now your just being offensive. ERA says 5 but he is pitching like a mid 2’s guy, and that my friends is why numbers lie.
Joe Weiland (Mil vs Wolf, Mia vs Nolasco) Home cooking for a Friar’s pitcher. Viva la Hodgepodgery.
Charlie Morton (@STL vs Wainwright, Cin vs Arroyo) If runs came in bunches like bananas then Pittsburgh is suffering from a potassium deficiency. Look away, nothing to see here unless your in a 16 plus team league and are desperate to destroy your counting stats for the week.
Liam Hendriks (@LAA vs Wilson, @Sea vs Noesi) The good news is he plays the Mariners. The bad is he is a mediocre pitcher on mediocre team playing against an ace. No sugar coating it around here I am diabetic.
