Itâ€™s a confusing week for me to grasp. Some formats are a short week, others role on until literally the middle (or end) of next week. So first things first, I will tackle the short 4 game week and give you some unbridled gems of the streaming variety. Stay tuned on Saturday for the following weekâ€™s two start thinga-ma-bobbers.Â If this is a short week for you, itâ€™s prolly best to grab as many of these guys as possible, longer week not so much as you may want to call Laurel and tell him to take a breather. So enjoy the short week or long and I will give you an update later this week for week 15 Â˝ or 16. (Please keep in mind that pitchers and matchups change.)
Bruce Chen @ Min (Liriano) – 2.50 ERA since DL stint return. Is the definition of a streaky low end good/bad pitcher.
Jason Vargas vs. Tex (Holland) – Basically needs to go the distance to have a chance at a win. 1.70 ERA in last 4 starts.
Andrew Miller @ TB (Price) – 4 starts, 3 wins plays for the best lineup in baseball. That is all.
Doug Fister vs. Tex (Lewis) – Gets zero run support. I really feel bad for him because if you havenâ€™t seen him pitch, he is very unheralded and unrewarded.
Jeff Karstens @ Hou (Myers) – Is he awesome, no. Effective lately yes. Regression will ensue.
Josh Tomlin @ Bal (Arrieta) – Sneaky 10 win pitcher, other numbers say he is pitching exactly the way he should be.
Vance Worley @ NYM (Dickey) – Awesome since mid-June. If he isnâ€™t owned, your league is dull.
Paul Maholm @ Hou (Norris) – 4-2 with a 1.75 ERA in last 7 starts. For the soon to be first place Pirates.
Barry Zito @ SD (Luebke) – 3 wins, tiny ERA since DL return.
Edwin Jackson @ Det (Scherzer) – Huh, yeah I wanted to highlight that this will be his last start in Chi-town. Thatâ€™s me predicting me!
Carlos Zambrano vs. Fla (Vazquez) – Fresh from the DL, seems like a trend for this post. Pitches just effectively enough to be added/dropped about 10 times a year. Ah, but look closer, he has RP elig, sneaky play for a Saturday.
Chris Volstad @CHC (Wells) – Stop trying to strike everyone out, youâ€™re a groundball pitcher.
Matt Harrison @ Sea (Beavan) – Seattle O is good twice a week.Â Coincidentally, that’s how much my garbage is picked up.
Brian Duensing vs. KC (Paulino) – Sneaky good lately, here for the added eligibility.
Kevin Correia @ Hou (Rodriquez) – Is money on the road.
