Stream, Stream, Stream: 2x SP 8.4-8.10

First a look at the running totals through half of week 16:

31-21 record
4.00 ERA
7.5 K/9
2.7 K/BB
1.30 WHIP

Here’s a look at this week’s recs, with team wOBA in parentheses:

Kevin Gausman – 4.4% ESPN/14% Y!/56% own, 31% start CBS – @WAS (.310), v. STL (.305)

As a brief aside, it’s a bit odd to see the Cardinals offense that far down — 21st among MLB in wOBA — but in the end that’s part of what makes Gausman such a favorable option this week. Gausman has done a very nice job for the Orioles this year, especially given how many times he’s been up and down — he’s only made three of his ten starts this year on regular four days rest.

Stream, Stream, Stream: 2x SP 7.28-8.3

First a look at the running totals through week 15 (and an apology for being extremely late this week due to a 10-year high school reunion):

30-20 record
3.93 ERA
7.5 K/9
2.7 K/BB
1.31 WHIP

Here’s a look at this week’s recs, with team wOBA in parentheses:

Nathan Eovaldi – 13.7% ESPN/22% Y!/55% own, 28% start CBS – v. WAS (.312), v. PIT (.320)

The Eovaldi rec is a tough one, as he’s gotten absolutely rocked in his last five starts (0-3, 6.39 ERA, and just 14 strikeouts in 31 innings). Read the rest of this entry »


Stream, Stream, Stream: 2x SP 7.21-7.27

First a look at the running totals through week 14 / the All Star break:

28-18 record
3.98 ERA
7.5 K/9
2.6 K/BB
1.30 WHIP

Here’s a look at this week’s recs, with team wOBA in parentheses:

Jacob deGrom – 31.9% ESPN/31% Y!/59% own, 27% start CBS – @SEA (.299), @MIL (.320)

deGrom has sort of come out of nowhere, as a right-hander one strikeout off a one per inning pace despite never matching that at any minor league level of his four seasons on the Mets farm. Read the rest of this entry »


Stream, Stream, Stream: 2x SP 7.7-7.13

First a look at the running totals through half of week 13:

25-14 record
3.93 ERA
7.4 K/9
2.7 K/BB
1.27 WHIP

On a side note, this is the last #2xSP before the All Star break. So I hope you enjoy the festivities — played in my home city of Minneapolis — and we’ll see you again in a couple weeks.

Here’s a look at this week’s recs, with team wOBA in parentheses:

Jake Odorizzi – 7.8% ESPN/16% Y!/57% own, 33% start CBS – v. KCR (.306), v. TOR (.334)

It didn’t start out so nice for Odorizzi this season. At the end of each month so far this season, here’s how his ERAs have laid out: 6.85, 5.13, 4.14. Read the rest of this entry »


Stream, Stream, Stream: 2x SP 6.30-7.6

First a look at the running totals through half of week 12:

21-13 record
3.95 ERA
7.4 K/9
2.7 K/BB
1.27 WHIP

Here’s a look at this week’s recs, with team wOBA in parentheses:

Danny Duffy – 11.4% ESPN/29% Y!/55% own, 36% start CBS – @MIN (.312), @CLE (.322) Read the rest of this entry »


Stream, Stream, Stream: 2x SP 6.23-6.29

First a look at the running totals through half of week 11:

18-13 record
4.04 ERA
7.5 K/9
2.8 K/BB
1.26 WHIP

Here’s a look at this week’s recs, with team wOBA in parentheses:

Nathan Eovaldi – 40.7% ESPN/39% Y!/81% own, 49% start CBS – @PHI (.302), v. OAK (.332)

I’ve made it no secret my affinity for Eovaldi, a fireballing right-hander (95-96 average on both heaters) with good strikeout (7.1 per nine) and grounder (46.9 percent) rates who plays in a very difficult park for left-handed hitters and all power hitters alike. Read the rest of this entry »

Stream, Stream, Stream: 2x SP 5.26-6.1

Thank you for your patience with me as I missed last week’s piece to attend a funeral in Minot, North Dakota. Now, onto this week’s business, but not before first taking a look at the running totals through week six:

9-8 record
4.17 ERA
8.3 K/9
2.8 K/BB
1.28 WHIP

Needless to say, the pre-DL Tyler Lyons clunker took its own toll on these stats. Let’s get back on track.

Here’s a look at this week’s recs, with team wOBA in parentheses:

RHP Nathan Eovaldi – 46.2% ESPN/46% Y!/80% ESPN (50% start) – @WAS (.309), v. ATL (.298) Read the rest of this entry »
