I’m going down the path of J-FOH and others here and trying to give general, “win your league” type advice these last couple weeks.  I’ve decided this week that advice will come in the form of how many games each team has left, along with noting which teams have Monday and Thursday off days. It’s not only useful for stolen bases but whatever category you need.  And I’ll also be noting as I did last week, some speedsters that have gained playing time recently, these are players to consider for streaming stolen bases these last two weeks.  So definitely couple this advice with the stolen bases versus starting pitchers SAGNOF tool and stream, stream, stream for steals, if you are up to the task.  Here’s this weeks “Names to consider” from speediest to least speedy:  Sam Fuld (Athletics), Abraham Almonte (Indian), Mikie Mahtook (Rays, decent power too), Andrew Romine (Tigers), Cory Spangenberg (Padres).  Some of those aren’t exactly household names, which is basically the point.

Last week I had Carl Crawford (Dodgers), Kelby Tomlinson (Giants), Jean Segura (Brewers) and Ketel Marte (Seattle).  Now here’s the table with the number of games remaining for each team.  It might be useful to consider for streaming middle relievers as well, frankly I haven’t had enough time to examine the various bullpen Saves Ain’t Got No Face situations right now.  Instead I’ll just say sorry to all the David Robertson and Brad Boxberger owners out there.  Ouch.  And that’s it for this week’s SAGNOF Special.

    How ’bout those “Atros”.

  2. Scott says:

    The Royales (e added for emphasis) need to just rest their starters and play Dyson for the rest of the year. Cmon guys! For my fantasy team!

      @Scott: That’s not just wishful thinking but a legit point. Gordon and Cain probably among those likely to see a day or two off during the last week.

    Anyone you like especially for holds this week. I have will smoth, Madson, osich, and shaw as of now. Thanks man

      @G: This is a situation where I’d be tempted to stream if possible, swapping your middle relievers that don’t play on Thursday for players that do.
