Morning Read: So far this season this is how I feel:
The offenses we thought were good are playing terrible and the offenses we thought were bad are playing amazing. Take a glance at wRC+ for teams overall and you will see the Texas Rangers and number six and the Atlanta Braves at number twenty-eight. Streaming is the absolute worst at the start of the year. No real data to go off of leaves us shooting in the dark.
As for yesterday's streamer, Tarik Skubal looked pretty good. I would have liked to see more whiffs on the secondary pitches. But the fastball looked fantastic! When he missed he missed outside of the zone and he was inducing whiffs in the zone with it. Command was a bit shaky at times but it seemed to be nerves because he was pushing the ball at times. Regardless, I am still excited for Mr. Skubal this year.
Today's Streamer: Logan Allen gets the call again the Kansas City Royals. Allen is a prototypical Cleveland pitcher. He has a good slider and has very good command over it. This is definitely a risky play because the Royals have started off hot but sometimes you just have to go with your gut.
Shallow League Option: Jordan Montgomery should be able to handle the Orioles.
Deep League Option: Logan Allen.
Looking For Strikeouts: Trevor Rogers
Looking For Quality Starts: Danny Duffy
Looking For Wins: Jordan Montgomery/Steven Matz
Looking For Ratios: Brett Anderson
Tomorrow's Streamers: Adbert Alzolay
