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).

For games played Sunday, July 24th
Alex Cobb @KC
The Royals offense has been sputtering worse than Al Bundy’s Dodge lately, and Cobb has allowed just five earned runs over his last 24.1 innings (that’s a 1.85 ERA for all you math majors).

For games played Monday, July 25th
Freddy Garcia vs. SEA
At some point, Garcia will tail off, but with a matchup against the light-hitting Mariners, don’t expect it to happen in this start.

R.A. Dickey vs. CIN
The Reds have never faced Dickey, which gives the frustrating knuckle-baller a nice advantage here. It also helps that the Reds offense has been pretty bad of late.

James McDonald @ATL
McDonald has been better recently, and he owns great numbers against the Braves across 17 innings (1.06 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 14 Ks).

“Stream Pies” Recommendation Results for 2011
35 Wins (86 starts), 531.2 IP, 3.96 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 5.86 K/9
