Fantasy Roundup: Friday Streamer Picks

Below are streamer picks (ranked from highest to lowest) for Friday. I choose players who are owned in less than 20% ESPN leagues. Pitchers I’m Streaming After Marcus Stroman’s first major league start I said he was a must add in every 12-team mixed league and so far he hasn’t disappointed. Since joining the rotation Stroman has a 2.48 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, 22.1% strikeout rate...

Marcus Stroman, the guy who shut us down last night, is the reason why the Yankees need draft picks, not old guys

Imagine a 23-year-old Yankee pitcher, a first-round pick from two years ago, hitting the Bronx and shutting down a rival for eight innings. Think the Yankiverse would be abuzz? We would be partying like it's 1999.Last night, the Yankees were shut down by Marcus Stroman, a kid who grew up practically within a pizza delivery of Yankee Stadium. A first-round pick.We haven't...

Stroman My Pain With His Fingers

Pitching my life with his words. One time, one time. What, you don't get down with The Fugees remix? By the by, Wyclef, musical talent, instrumental to success, pun noted. Lauryn Hill bonkers talented, pun noted. Pras? Um... Well... An actual refugee? True story, Wyclef once walked into my mom's chiropractor office and asked her to massage his butt. My mom declined...

Jays need Marcus Stroman to play stopper in battle of young arms (Yankees-Blue Jays preview)

Week 13 Preview: New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays Fresh off a road trip unbefitting of a division leader the Blue Jays return home to take on the Yankees – a New York team that just swept them in the Bronx during a three game set. Without a miraculous comeback from an 8-0 deficit on Friday the Blue Jays would be riding a six game losing streak and sit at 3-7 in their last...

Fantasy Baseball: Closer update

The closing roles throughout the majors are ever changing. One of the most important things that fantasy baseball owners must pay attention to is the closer carrousel. Even if a closer has pitched consistently well all season, a chain of bad outings can quickly result in his removal from the closing role. Whether it’s a roto or a points league, saves are extremely valuable. Of...

Move from bullpen to rotation a relief for Stroman

TORONTO, On. — When Marcus Stroman was called up to the Toronto Blue Jays for the first time in early May, many wondered whether he would help the back end of the rotation, or if he was destined for the bullpen. It turned out he would be put in the bullpen and his work in five appearances was less than stellar. After being sent down for two weeks, he came back to the Blue Jays...

Marcus Stroman Handles Cards

It seems like nothing can go wrong for the Blue Jays right now. They've won six in a row and eight of their last ten games, and last night rookie Marcus Stroman grabbed his third win in just his second MLB start, pitching six innings, allowing just one run while giving up seven hits, walking two, and striking out seven. Let the Stromania begin! After defeating the Royals last...

Marcus Stroman Key To Toronto Blue Jays’ Playoff Hopes

It is a special occasion for any rookie, a day that you and your family remember for the rest of their lives, the moment a baseball player makes his first start in the major leagues. That occasion came yesterday for Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher, Marcus Stroman, whom was facing the Kansas City Royals, and it was as momentous as the twenty-three year old from Long Island, New...

Fantasy Roundup: Stroman Is a Must Add

After a brief and brutal start (as a reliever) to Marcus Stroman’s major league career, the Blue Jays sent him back to AAA so he could be stretched backed out as a starter. On Friday he received news he was getting called up to make a spot start on Saturday. Based on how well he pitched I find it hard to believe he will be sent back to the minors any time soon. He went six innings...
