Then doing the same thing the next day and thereafter to block the spot starter from picking up the best pitchers or those pitchers with the best matchups available. Its a sound strategy if you have the roster space and moves available. It also works really well if you if you can do it to the team you play a few days in advance.
First time I've heard the term 'streamers'. When did peopel start using that? In the past, what is being described in this thread is churning. What havok wrote above is 'illegal' by yahoo rules and most other sites and doesn't have a name i've ever heard people go by.
