An early word of caution: I am on vacation, hitting 5 stadiums from Pittsburgh (last night) to Baltimore in 10 days. Thus, my usual Insightful (?) commentary will be limited at this point, until I reach a point on the trek with better wifi and the time to write.
I was amazed at how many pitchers I would not want on my team this week. Bad recent outings, lack of consistency, low strike out rates...all reasons to avoid the final tier. Let's take a look at top two tiers, and dissect what there is to like and what you want to avoid.
Back at ya again with next week's two start options in the world of fantasy baseball. Week 7 rolls out a healthy number of choices to help your team succeed, and move up in the standings.
As we wind up the first month of the season, Things are starting to get a bit less muddied with regard to which Starting Pitchers you want to target week in, week out. Obviously we are not going to have all the best SPs on our rosters for two start purposes, but if you have one or two from the top chart, you should feel pretty darned good about your team's chances to succeed this week. It's the second tier that provides the best value, however, and I will spend the most time on those hurlers this installment. The final chart is not too large, but be very wary of starting any of those guys.
