Sometimes, you have to buy cheap to make ends meet.

At “Stream Pies,” we are serving up gooey loads of knowledge. Here, we’ll provide invaluable streaming advice on SPs who are owned in less than 30-percent of Yahoo! leagues. We list the options in order of best option to “least-best” option (with the strongest recommendations starting at the top). 

Just a couple of players worthy of a Kid Clutch pick-up for Thursday, but that’s how the story goes sometimes.

For games played on Thursday, 6/16/11
James McDonald @HOU
He’s been putting a ton of guys on base lately, but he owned the Astros back on May 8th (6 IP, 0 ERs, 3 Hs, 2 BBs, 8 Ks). Despite the risk involved in deploying him, I’m eating off the McDonald Dollar Menu for this start. I’ve been picking on Houston a lot here on “Stream Pies,” but playing the matchups is part of being a master stream-stress.

R.A. Dickey @ATL
He owns a 2.23 ERA since May 20th and the Braves offense has sucked lately.

“Stream Pies” Recommendation Results for 2011
6 Wins (13 starts), 85.1 IP, 2.64 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 5.38 K/9
