Week 19 delivers a nice batch of two start pitchers, both in the top tier and the middle tier.
First full week after the All Star break, and it is time to figure out who to start in the second half of the baseball season. We have a handful of must starts this week, another handful to avoid and a boatload to consider depending on your circumstances.
This week there are fewer two start pitching options than we've seen over the past several scoring periods. Where this hurts is in the middle tier, since we still have a bushelful of top tier guys to roster, including a couple of new comers to the rarefied air in Tier One.
Bit of a shake up in the top two tiers this week. I base this on recent performances, looking for tendencies in production, as well as match ups and where the game is being played.
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.
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.
The final Saturday of my vacation, and thus, the last of these shortened posts about two start options. Must admit, I am jealous of the Orioles fans, getting to watch their home games in Camden Yards, one of the greatest ballparks it has been my pleasure to enter this past week. Comerica is nice, but this is how a ballpark should be built.
We are now well into week 2 of the fantasy baseball season, and it is time to start searching out waiver wire gems that can give you that early weekly win in your Head to Head leagues or pad your roto and/or points league stats early on in the year. For those of you whose leagues allow pitcher streaming, there are a number of worthwhile candidates this weekend, and it just so happens that I have listed my best bets in the handy table below. As of posting, all these SPs are owned in less than 50% of leagues, although it won't stay that way for very long with some of these players.
