Morning Read: I decided to read a book while on vacation and it's about the term "wabi sabi" and Japanese culture. There, so far, are a ton of different aspects to it as well as different opinions on its true meaning. One aspect of the phrase is about failure. When you fail try to learn to accept it, when you accept it you then are able to learn from it and move on from it in a quicker fashion. We all have to fail at our goals, relationships, and careers in order to learn. Failing sucks, but it's what you take from it that matters. You can't be perfect and can't be the best at everything and the sooner you accept that the happier you will be. Some words of wisdom from the book:
"Everything is impermanent, imperfect, and incomplete."
* I will be on vacation starting Saturday 8/7 until Tuesday 8/17. I will try my best to update the chart when possible but if not I will be doing this article every day.*
Today's Streamer: He won't be pitching in the best ballpark for pitchers but Tarik Skubal seems to be a solid option versus the Baltimore Orioles. Skubal hasn't been that great since the start of July with a withering strikeout percentage and ERA on the rise. The stuff is still there and I am more so curious as to if it could just be fatigue. My confidence rating of 7.0 means I have some faith but not a ton which explains this pick perfectly. He seems to be the best option for today though. Wait what am I saying? You people picked this! I tweeted out a poll and Skubal won. You all better be right!
Shallow League Option: Tarik Skubal.
Deep League Option: Tyler Anderson came in second in that poll due to his matchup against Texas. So why not make him our deep league pick?
Looking For Strikeouts: Tarik Skubal and Joe Ross.
Looking For Quality Starts: Joe Ross and Rich Hill.
Looking For Wins: David Price and Rich Hill.
Looking For Ratios: Tarik Skubal, Tyler Anderson, and Rich Hill.
Tomorrow's Streamers: Logan Webb, Vladimir Gutierrez, and Erick Fedde.
