I’m very pleased with how Week 1 went down! Five of our six streamers looked great going into Sunday, and the only one that didn’t pitch well had their matchup changed on us! What kind of crap is that? Anyway, this week is a bit tougher than the last. Most of the two-start guys are owned in every league, and it’s going to force us to make a couple of risky picks. That means it might be a better week to ride the one-start streamers instead, but if your feeling ballsy, let’s ride the wave with Wade!Please, blog, may I have some more?
How awesome is it that baseball is back? I can’t tell you how excited I am to be back and providing some streamers again this year after that whack-a-doodle 2020 season. The first few days of baseball were absolutely fantastic, and I’m ready to hook you guys up for the rest of the season. The first week tends to be light in terms of streamers, but this one is different. I love some of the options out there, so let’s go ahead and get into it!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Nobody likes people who toot their own horn but I’m going to go ahead and do that right here. I’m in the middle of all of my fantasy baseball playoffs and responded with my best streamers of the season. Pablo Lopez, Mike Minor, Jose Urquidy, Griffin Canning and Tarik Skubal all had fantastic weeks, carrying me to numerous championships. I hope they did the same for you and we’ll look to keep that momentum rolling here. I also want to thank all of you for reading throughout this chaotic season and hopefully, I provided you with some good picks and humor! With that said, this is the final week of the regular season, so, chaos is inevitable. Let’s go ahead and get into it!Please, blog, may I have some more?
This sounds absolutely crazy to say but there are two weeks left in the fantasy baseball season. It felt like I just started writing these articles and here we are at the end of the season. It’s been an absolute sprint to get to this point and it makes the rest of these games absolutely critical. That’s why I’m going to kill it with these streamers, so, let’s go ahead and get into it!Please, blog, may I have some more?
This sounds crazy to say but we’re approaching the end of the fantasy baseball season. It literally feels like it just started but here we are with just three weeks remaining. I don’t even know how to comprehend that and it just absolutely blows my mind. Anyway, last week’s article was up for debate whether it was successful or not. We had some hits and some misses but I’m feeling strong about these streamers this week and am ready for some action!Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s tough to even examine how the streamers went last week. There were so many doubleheaders and craziness across the rotations, no one could have predicted anything. In any case, we actually had a really good week. Corbin Burnes, Framber Valdez and Kwang Hyun Kim all had brilliant starts and none of our guys got blown up. That’s really good news with all the unpredictability right now and we’re going to look to keep that momentum rolling here.Please, blog, may I have some more?
After two great weeks, last week’s article was a bit hit-and-miss. Most of the streamers performed pretty well but an absolute dud from Adam Plutko really annoyed me. In any case, it’s something to build off of and we just have to pray that the rotations stay where they are and we don’t have more COVID chaos.

Framber Valdez (vs. LAA, vs. OAK)
Guys, Valdez is still available in wayyyy too many leagues. He’s done nothing but produce all season long and he’s been one of the best streamers out there. We’re talking about a dude who owns a 1.72 ERA and 1.09 WHIP through five games this season. He even navigated through Coors Field in his last start, proving he’s no fluke.
Those numbers alone make him a great streaming option but getting two home starts only adds to his intrigue. Minute Maid Park currently ranks 27th in park factor and it’s truly developed into one of the most pitcher-friendly ballparks around. While both of these offenses have potential, Valdez has seen each of them once, owning a 0.68 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 11.5 K/9 rate across 13.1 innings of action. Not to mention, neither of those clubs are hitting above .230 and are clearly off to slow starts.
The Streamonator absolutely loves this call, projecting Valdez for 13.2 Ks across two quality starts en route to $22.5 worth of value.
Aside from Tyler Mahle getting removed from the rotation about 12 hours after my article was published, we had another successful streamers week. Randy Dobnak, Brandon Bielak, Christian Javier, Framber Valdez and Dylan Cease all performed well and that’s really all we can hope for. That makes for two successful weeks in a row and we’re going to look to keep that momentum rolling here!Please, blog, may I have some more?
After a mediocre opening week, I’m pretty happy with the results for last week. Alec Mills and Zach Plesac were great as our two-start streamers and guys like Michael Wacha, David Peterson and Christian Javier were solid too. The COVID craziness from last week is about to wreak havoc on the rest of the season though, with St. Louis likely missing more games. There are so many doubleheaders this week and it’s hard to even grasp what these rotations will look like and when people will pitch. I do have a decent idea right now though and I’ll do my best to provide you with some great streamers to ride the wave this week!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Man, I knew this season would be crazy but goodness gracious. Trying to figure out who the streamers are in the past was usually a tough task but this wild 60-game schedule and COVID craziness has made it even tougher. That has me working harder than ever to spot the right guys for you and I feel confident about this group that we have here. With that in mind, let’s get into it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
