Mid-May, and here's hoping we don't see anymore sub-50 degree days at the ballpark. Froze my butt off at the Tiger game this last weekend, then fried in the sun yesterday in the upper deck of Comerica Park. Plus, I was forced to watch my hometown heroes lose both games. No matter about that, let's see what there is for end of the week streaming purposes.
As you glance at these streaming options, you may say "Huh?" I assure you, however, that these are the best options I can come up with for this weekend's games. Remember, these guys are owned in less than 50% of leagues, so most should be available in standard leagues. I am providing this information Thursday evening, so the disclaimer that things can change based on weather, injury or managerial decisions applies.
With a full week plus in the books, it is now a proper time to look at some streaming options in your leagues. Especially if you had Greinke or Weaver as your SP1/2, then you need some help. So without further ado (well, maybe a tiny bit of ado) here are some pitchers you might want to pick up for a start this weekend.
It worked well for me last week, so we will continue the two part Pitch & Ditch articles during mid-week. It helps to break up the information into easier digestible chunks, and keeps the information more timely. Win-Win, right?
As you can see, in Part 2 of this week's Pitch & Ditch we have 11 more SPs to recommend over the final two days at the end of the period. Now that's a lot of options this week, and while I cannot promise all will be gems, at least you have more of an opportunity to get some pitching goodness at the end of the week.
If this is Wednesday, I must be in Boston. I will be heading off to Fenway Park in a bit, but wanted to get the Thursday Pitch and Ditch options out before taking in the splendor of the American League's oldest ballpark. More to come for the weekend tomorrow.
Before I head off to watch the Tigers take on the Twins this evening, I thought it would be a good idea to publish a short article about the Thursday Pitch & Ditch options. Two of these guys are here for the short term, most like, so take advantage now if you need the stats. The main weekend article will be published tomorrow.
