Here we are, in the final week of the fantasy baseball season, and this is my final 2 Start Pitcher article of the 2012 season. If you are in it to win it, then some of these middle tier guys may just help push you over the edge to fantasy victory. Avoid the guys in the final tier unless you are extremely desperate, and even then, I can't suggest you go there in good faith.
For those of you still fighting for a championship, the good news is that the pitching options for this upcoming week are quite appealing. The other good news is that I don't have any bad news to report. So, let's see who you should be snapping up off the wire to push you over the edge to fantasy glory.
Heading into the middle of September, and with all the call ups, our options to stream 2 start pitchers are becoming less attractive. Still, the middle tier has some decent choices, at least at the top of the tier.
I apologize for the lateness of this post, but I've been immersed all weekend in Fantasy Football drafts, and it won't get any better until late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning when we wrap up our Fantasy Alarm staff auction draft. Next week's article will be more timely, I promise. And because of my schedule, not much time to provide in depth analysis this week either.
Before we get to the 2 Start Options for this upcoming scoring period, a moment of silence for my loss...of BFBC, TT edition. Should have known Colon's production was too good to be natural, but losing him for the rest of the season truly hurts. Been scrambling all week to find a suitable replacement, some of whom are in the second tier below. Anythehoo, let's get to it.
As the season rolls though August, it's time to prepare for the stretch run if you are in contention for your league title. Pick up as many fantasy points as you can now, and position your team for the final showdown. With that in mind, let's take a look at those two start pitching options that can help you out this week.
Mid way through August now, or at least we will be by the end on the current scoring period. Time to work the wire to pick up as many pitching stats, like Ks and Ws, as humanly possible, or as your league rules allow. Prolly no chance to get any of the top tier guys at this point, but if you have them, start them. As the title to the tier says.
I am certainly not overwhelmed by the two start pitching options this week. As I was telling Jeff Mans, the choices are crappily mediocre for the most part, at least one you get past the first tier and a handful in the middle tier. Still, you have to field a team, so here's what I see for the scoring period ahead.
Coming to you from the lovely Keweenaw Peninsula area of northern Michigan (aka the UP), here is this Saturday's installment of Two Start Pitchers for Week 18. Since I am on something of a deadline, having to wrap this up before brunch and then an afternoon wedding, let's just get to it.
