Two-Startapalooza, Week 22: Dog Days

This is happening on the other side of my laptop as I sit here writing the Two-Startapalooza... Yes, that is a dog dry-humping Boo the star Pomeranian in stuffed animal form. He does it all the time, but for some reason it seemed profound to me and strangely relevant to this week’s batch of pitchers. [Jay's Note: Uhhhh. Okay?] Perhaps my dog represents the fantasy gods,...

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, Aug 23-25

Steamer still doesn’t like Jon Lester, projecting him for a 3.48 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and just 6 IP per start the rest of the way. Matched up against the division leading Angels, Lester has fallen to about league average in our rankings. I’d put him 6th or 7th among Saturday’s starters. Also on Saturday, Jacob deGrom is back! Unfortunately he faces the Dodgers and will be opposed...

The Pirates will counter with Francisco Liriano, who’s been really excellent in his last five starts. Before the game, the Pirates announced...
