Today’s version of streaming sleepers will be short since I made it out to watch Brandon McCarthy (my streamer in two leagues) have his start ruined by another blown save. Bob Geren is a terrible manager, but that’s for another article. McCarthy passed the eye test and I’m glad I’ve had him all season as a sleeper. Unfortunately, J.A. Happ didn’t fare as well, giving up four earned in seven innings; we’ll have his full line tomorrow. On to our streamer for Sunday, and this was a pretty easy pick…
Michael Pineda (SEA) – 45%
Usually we’re streaming against Seattle, but on Sunday we’ll go with their starter who was fantastic his last time out and will likely be ineligible for our purposes in his next start. In his last appearance, he only allowed one run pitching into the eighth inning while striking out seven batters. Look for more of the same Sunday in Kansas City.
