Morning Read: WADE MILEY HOW YA DOIN? For those living under a rock, Wade Miley pitched a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians last night. He didn't induce a ton of whiffs and only came away with a 28.0 CSW but he did create a ton of weak contact. He was able to work those cutters in on right-handed hitters while throwing the changeup away from them and his pitch chart is just beautiful to look at. Good for you Miley!
Today's Streamer: I was going back and forth between Garrett Richards and Trevor Williams so we are going with both of them. Richards doesn't have the easiest matchup going into Baltimore to face the Orioles but he has been on fire. In his last two starts he has a 34.8 K-BB% and 16.1 SwStr%, both of which are elite numbers. On the other hand, we have Trevor Williams who hasn't been anything special but draws a great matchup against the Pirates. The Pirates have been arguably the worst offense as of late. Yes worse than the Tigers.
Shallow League Option: Carlos Martinez gets the Rockies at home and this makes so much sense.
Deep League Option: Garret Richards/Trevor Williams.
Looking For Strikeouts: Garrett Richards/Vince Velasquez.
Looking For Quality Starts: Garrett Richards/Trevor Williams.
Looking For Wins: Garrett Richards/Trevor Williams.
Looking For Ratios: Garrett Richards/Trevor Williams/Adrian Houser.
Tomorrow's Streamers: Dane Dunning/Eric Lauer.
The Day After: Jeff Hoffman (might not want to do this).
