Sleeper Watch - 6 comments

Streaming Sleepers took a break due to this weekend’s holiday, so let’s start with a recap of the weekend’s results. Fausto Carmona was back to his Opening Day act, giving up six earned runs in five innings in Minnesota. Carmona ran into trouble in the third and fifth innings, where bloop singles and walks got him in trouble, and hard hit balls ruined him. Luckily I decided to also stream Brian Duensing on my stream team, so the overall damaged was lessened for me. Our season stats however, are a different story.
On Sunday we had two starters throwing, since Kevin Correia’s start was pushed back because of the rainout on Friday. In the first game, Correia got rocked. How anyone gives up 11 hits is beyond me. Doug Fister returned some of our credibility with a solid six innings, but overall this streaming weekend was as terrible as the weather.

Season Totals:


Monday Streamer

Jon Garland (LAD) @ FLA – 9%

There aren’t any great options for Monday, but the best available seems to be Garland, who after getting roughed up in his first start had a great outing last time he took the mound (CG, 4 hits, 1 earned run). On top of that, he faces a so-so Marlins offense in a pitchers park and has a career 2.33 ERA against Florida. He should be able to get us back on track.

Tuesday Streamer

Brandon McCarthy (OAK) @ LAA – 17%

McCarthy faces the Angels this Tuesday, but with as well as he’s been throwing I’m not sure it really matters. I’ve written about him a bunch before here, here, and here. So there isn’t much more to say.

  1. I am going Jair Jurrjens for tomorrow, Two solid outings thus far and Padres at petco……… yes please

  2. I just don’t see Garland doing great today either but not a bad matchup

    Anyone gambling with Chatwood? OAK isn’t scary but Chatwood’s walks are…

    Jurrjens is a great pick, but when I wrote my article he was owned in 54% of Yahoo leagues, making him ineligible. As for the Garland pick, today wasn’t a great day for streaming options, and he seemed to be the best.

    Chatwood isn’t a terrible choice, given that the A’s are pretty terrible right now, but I’d rather have McCarthy or someone else that I’ve seen more of.

  5. Wow i guess people realized, his ownership sky rocketed, but yeah Garland was good today not spectacular (not too many K’s) but pretty good considering

  6. User avatar BayBear says:

    I was happy with his outing. I didn’t expect many K’s, he just doesn’t miss many bats. He made two bad pitches on the HR’s, but I can’t complain about him. The bullpen however…
