When Jonathon Niese started to mow down the Cardinals lineup, I was crushed that I was going to have to hype another Mets pitcher and talk about how the defending World Champs were bested for three straight games and mustered not a single run. Well, considering he only went six innings, he’ll get an honorable mention because taking the place of Mets pitchers for today, will be Phil Hughes, Chris Sale and Trevor Cahill. Not one, not two, but three complete games on Sunday marking yet another Year of the Pitcher it seems. Each one put forth an incredible effort on Sunday, boosting fantasy teams with their pitching lines.
Just a quickie again today, folks. Time constraints have a hold on me again today, so as much as I would love to ooh and aah about some killer young starting pitching, I’m going to have to keep it brief. One thing that I will reiterate to all you fantasy hounds out there is that if there’s one thing you can take away from yesterday and this first month of baseball, it’s that pitching will always be the deepest position out there, and if you do your due diligence prior to your draft, you can build yourself a spectacular pitching staff without having to invest in one of these top flight aces that will cost you an arm and a leg in bid dollars or a pick as high as the second or third round. We all know that offense wins fantasy championships, so if you load up on the big hitters first and then draft some of the better pitchers from the third or fourth tier or even lower, you can still come out ahead and win your league.
