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).

It’s slim pickings the next couple of days for the streaming community, but that’s just how the game goes sometimes.

For games played Saturday, August 6th
Paul Maholm vs. SD
Maholm has very good home numbers (2.63 ERA and 1.20 WHIP) while the Padres have very bad everywhere numbers.

Alex Cobb vs. OAK
Cobb has become something of a mainstay here on “Stream Pies” lately. I’mma keep going to the youngster until he burns me like a Hunts Point trick.

For games played Sunday, August 7th

For games played Monday, August 8th
Chris Capuano vs. SD
Though Capuano has been struggling to keep runs off the board, he’s still getting ahead of the count, inducing weak contact, and generating ample swings and misses. Expect him to get back on track against a hapless Padres offense.

“Stream Pies” Recommendation Results for 2011
45 Wins (111 starts), 686.1 IP, 4.03 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, 6.20 K/9
