Morning Read: Happy Friday! We all know Vlad Sedler for being a fantastic analyst and as the FAAB whisperer. The other day he decided to write and release an article about the struggles of being an analyst, something I can definitely relate to. When it comes to burning out and balancing your personal life being an analyst can be very taxing at times. Check out his article here, it's an awesome read.
Today's Streamer: Another day with not a lot of great options. I was close to rolling out Wil Crowe against the Cardinals, but I rolled with Jon Lester. He was our original pick yesterday, mainly because of Miami's struggles against left-handed pitchers. Lester won't get you any strikeouts but he should provide decent ratios here. Saturday and Sunday provide much better options.
Shallow League Option: I know he has been struggling but this might finally be Tony Gonsolin's coming out party. He draws a matchup with the Cubs who have been abysmal lately. Not only are they not getting on base but they have been striking out a ton. Gonsolin has a fantastic arsenal with a lot of movement and he should finally give us a quality start.
Deep League Option: Jon Lester.
Looking For Strikeouts: Tony Gonsolin and Griffin Canning.
Looking For Quality Starts: Jon Lester.
Looking For Wins: Jon Lester, Tony Gonsolin, and Kwang Hyun Kim.
Looking For Ratios: Jon Lester, Wil Crowe, and Tony Gonsolin.
Tomorrow's Streamers: JT Brubaker and Arian Houser.
The Day After: Jake Odorizzi, Patrick Sandoval, and Tyler Anderson
