Streaming Pitchers

I like to stream pitchers. I like to keep a constant flow of starters coming in and out on a daily basis and I like using guys that nobody’s heard of.

If you haven’t pitched in the bigs yet, but you start today…you’re probably going to throw on my teams.

Does this work? Yes. Sometimes. Sometimes it fails, miserably. Is it fun? Yes.

Does it piss off people? I think so. I think it’s frowned down upon by a lot of fantasy players. I’m not really sure why…but I think it’s a jealousy thing. They hate seeing their opponent running at them four pitchers deep every single day.

With a little research you can actually get some of these no-name guys in spots that will statistically work out for you. Today I’m using Jakabasaukus for the Mariners. He’s at home against Oakland and the Athletics are terrible on the road. I”m not really banking on the pitcher being good, so much as I am on Oakland being Oakland.

If you’re in a Head-to-Head league you’ll often get to a point where it’s time to throw the towel in on ERA or WHIP and that’s the best time to start streaming. You don’t need to do it all week, just Saturday or Sunday.
