Morning Read: One month left! August was a bit of a weird month as we didn't grab a lot of strikeouts but everything else turned out just fine. For the second month in a row our main picks put up an ERA under four, bringing us closer to our yearly goal of finishing under a four ERA. Our line for our main picks comes in at 149.1 innings pitched with a 3.74 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. Not too shabby. Our shallow league picks for August came with an impressive line as well, 157.2 innings pitched with a 3.14 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. That's great! Finally our deep league picks, we had a solid month for them as well with 151.1 innings pitched a 4.10 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. All around a great month! Let's keep it rolling.
Today's Streamer: We have talked about Kyle Freeland a bunch because he has been a great pitcher for the last two months. He is inducing a ton of weak contact and seems to be in good shape to continue his success. He gets the Rangers who proved me wrong yesterday with our pick but I am still sticking by this, their offense isn't good.
Shallow League Option: Kyle Freeland.
Deep League Option: Joe Ryan gets the call for his first MLB start. It's the last month so we are going to break our rule of never streaming a pitcher in their major league debut. Joe Ryan is known for his command so I think that will help him with his adrenaline and excitement. He gets a matchup against the Cubs and I think he should be just fine.
