Well I am rolling with Skaggs! So I'm hoping for the very least a bunch of K's. A win would be fantastic.

That worked out well. Tomorrow I like Nathan Eovaldi at Home against the Padres.

That's not a bad one at all, especially with the Marlins scoring runs.

Pitched a helluva game but was outdone by an even better AB from Amarista. Still, Eovaldi looks like he could be more than just a streaming option in 2014.

Not much to recommend on Monday. Jarrad Cosart has a career BAA .219 but a terrible K/BB ratio and is a risky play against an Angels offense that is starting to heat up. Corey Kluber was highly touted coming into the season but wet the bed first up against the A's. He needs to be watched but can't be trusted yet even against the Padres. Best to wait until Tuesday.

Streaming Harang for two starts in a weekly league.
Seems like hes been around for ever, but hes still on the better side of 30, and hes a brave.
Hes got the Mets and Nats at home this week. tyvm.

I thought about him for a while, but instead chose to stream Charlie Morton over Harang in my weekly league. Morton gets 2 starts @ Cubs and @ Brewers. I'm always worried about a Harang meltdown, although he looked fantastic in his first start.

If you're worried about Harang melting down, I don't know that Morton is the appropriate alternative. :-b

I actually prefer Harang, if you're looking for a 2-start SP, because he gets both his starts at Home, versus Morton's on the Road, and the Mets offensively are just a disaster. They've struck out 61 times in 6 games, and have only walked 18 times. I know the Cubs and Brewers are just as statistically terrible through two series, but in watching the Mets 4 or 5 times already, they have achieved a level of suck that I just don't think Milwaukee or Chicago are currently at. The only more pathetic offense I think resides in San Diego. :-)

Gun to my head, I guess I'm taking Kyle Kendrick vs Milwaukee today, although I really don't like anybody. Kendrick is coming off an excellent start @TEX, Milwaukee can't hit right now, Braun's thumb is banged up, and Kendrick had a great April last year before looking in the mirror and remembering that he's Kyle Effin' Kendrick. Again, I don't like anybody, but if I had to pick, he'd be the guy.

I actually had to look it up as I thought he'd been around forever.

I will say that while looking up Harang's age I saw that he's made 54 million in his 12 years in the bigs :-P

Astonishing.

Tomorrow I like Paxton, if for some reason he's available. Usually avoid pitchers facing the same team in back-to-back starts, but I like Paxton. Otherwise, Buehrle is worth a look if he's available.
