Stream Pies (7/25/11)

Gotta go to Mose’

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).

Admittedly, this is a bad week for streaming. Not a lot of interesting matchups to take advantage of, but there’s definitely enough to

For games played Tuesday, July 26th
Brandon McCarthy vs. TB
McCarthy is rocking a 2.33 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 6.98 K/9 at home, and while the Rays are a good team, their offense isn’t anything special.

Dustin Moseley vs. ARI
Dustin “Mose” Moseley has been a quietly effective SP all year (3.19 ERA and 1.27 WHIP) and while he’s been much worse at home this year (3.91 ERA and 1.40 WHIP), I’m still liking his odds of a useful fantasy start at Petco Park.

For games played Wednesday, July 27th
No-damn-body. Unless you think starting John Lackey is a good idea (which it isn’t, even against KC).

For games played Thursday, July 28th
Homer Bailey vs. NYM
Bailey continues to kill it at home (4-1, 32.1 IP, 2.51 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 25 Ks) and though the Mets offense is finally healthy, Bailey has looked good enough to handle them.

For games played Friday, July 29th
Jeff Niemann @SEA
The Mariners suck, Niemann is on fire right now (1.32 ERA in July), and the Rays SP has been a superior hurler on the road (32 IP, 3.38 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, 18 Ks).

Jason Hammel @SD
Though Hammel was rocked in his last start, he’ll be pitching in Petco this time around and he owns a 2.95 ERA there over 18.1 innings. Oh yeah, the Padres also suck.
