We're got a full slate of Wednesday games ahead of us, as usual, so let's look at the entire pitching form and see if we can locate a streamer or two.

Probable Pitchers, Sept. 14
1. Clayton Kershaw vs. Arizona: Front-runner for NL Cy Young
2. Roy Halladay at Houston: Won't take any opponent lightly
3. Jered Weaver at Oakland: Fly-ball pitcher in a giant yard
4. Tim Lincecum vs. San Diego: Will the offense support him?
5. Ricky Romero at Boston: Up against Lackey, we like that
6. Johnny Cueto vs. Chicago: Hasn't been a problem at home (1.46/0.94)
7. Shaun Marcum vs. Colorado: Pick it up before people start missing Lawrie
8. Edwin Jackson at Pittsburgh: Other than Milwaukee start, he's settled in nicely
9. Mat Latos at San Francisco: Stepped up nicely in second half (3.28/1.07)
10. Daniel Hudson at Los Angeles: A little less fun against Kershaw
11. Luke Hochevar vs. Minnesota: Strikeout play, reasonable opponent
12. Derek Holland vs. Cleveland: An opus one week, a mess the next
13. Ivan Nova at Seattle: Good matchup, but he's been uneven lately
14. Wade Davis at Baltimore: Be afraid, Boston, be very afraid
15. Randall Delgado vs. Florida: Pitching for rotation spot
16. Bud Norris vs. Philadelphia: Hurts that he's up against Doc
17. Jeremy Guthrie vs. Tampa: Surprised a contender didn't move for him
18. Kevin Millwood at Milwaukee: Been better than most expected
19. Liam Hendriks at Kansas City: First outing was solid
20. Brad Penny at Chicago: Slower than dial-up
21. Charlie Morton vs. St. Louis: Jig has been up for a while
22. Jason Vargas vs. New York: Wrong offense to mess with
23. Mike Pelfrey vs. Washington: This generation's Brian Bannister, more brains than talent
24. Rich Harden vs. Los Angeles: Five innings? Six?
25. Ricky Nolasco at Atlanta: For fantasy purposes, he's dead to me
26. Casey Coleman at Cincinnati: Heads up in the bleachers
27. Brad Peacock at New York: Double-jumper had nice year in minors
28. John Lackey vs. Toronto: Don't do it for yourself
29. David Huff at Texas: Wrong park, wrong time to use
30. Dylan Axelrod vs. Detroit: Don't mess with Tigers offense right now

-- Possible Streamers, depending on your pool: Hochevar (13 percent), Davis (16 percent), Nova (58 percent, if strikeouts don't matter to you), Jackson (53 percent), maybe Penny (four percent) if you want to ride the Detroit offense. Delgado (four percent) isn't the worst long-shot play.{ysp:more}

About Last Night: Joel Peralta got the Tampa handshake in style, striking out the side at Baltimore. It's not clear if Kyle Farnsworth (elbow) will be available this week. The wild card in the Tampa bullpen is stud rookie Matt Moore, who might be used as a shutdown reliever similar to the David Price debut in 2008. But it's unlikely Moore will work on back-to-back days, and he could always get work as a spot-starter if the need arises. … Joel Hanrahan didn't have his cleanest outing, but a handshake is a handshake. He's traded strikeouts for control this year, and the results have been superb: 37-for-40 on saves, 1.67 ERA, 1.01 WHIP. … Brent Morel has a pair of two-homer games this month, but his seasonal line doesn't point to anything (.255/.288/.360). Do what you like, I'm not adding him. … San Francisco exploded for eight runs, with Cody Ross, Carlos Beltran and Pablo Sandoval going deep. Ross reached base four times and will probably get an extensive look in the leadoff spot. … Joe Saunders soft-served his way to a win at Chavez Ravine (7 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 4 K) and keep him in mind later in the week at San Diego. … The Yankees took batting practice at Seattle, rapping out nine runs and 14 hits against Felix Hernandez and Co. Unfortunately none of the name New York catchers were in the mix, as Austin (Sweet Child) Romine got the start. … Yonder Alonso wasn't allowed to start any of the games in Coors Field (broke my heart), but he was back in the Cincinnati lineup Monday, going 0-for-4 with a run scored and a walk. He's at .379 for his limited time in the Queen City. … Andrew Bailey took a line drive in the face during batting practice, making him unavailable for the A's. Grant Balfour finished up in a non-save spot, striking out the side but allowing a run in the ninth. … Carlos Lee homered as the Astros got past Philly. He's quietly been useful in the second half (.295/.379/.497, nine homers, more walks than strikeouts).
