Two more streaming days and then we're all done. Here's the Tuesday card. As always, consider everyone to be tentative and double check anything you can.
Guthrie's run in Kansas City (3.18 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, 16 walks, 53 strikeouts) has been too good to ignore, even with this matchup. And perhaps the Tigers will enter the game with little incentive. Guthrie does have to face Doug Fister, however; he's been very good, too.
The Capuano story has run out of steam in the second half (3-7, 4.71/1.29) but with the Chavez Ravine backdrop and Zito on the other side, there's only so low I can rank him. Zito has actually been strong over the last month (four wins, 3.03/1.38), which sets up a Charlie Brown/football opportunity. Tread carefully.
Phelps takes over for Ivan Nova, who's been a mess down the stretch. How many innings can Phelps be expected to go?
Patrick Corbin vs. COL
Casey Kelley at MIL
Carlos Villanueva vs. MIN
Anthony Swarzak at TOR
Hey, there are games Wednesday. Don't risk anything on these guys.
Possible Streams for Wednesday (in no particular order): Travis Wood, A.J. Griffin, Ryan Vogelsong, Gavin Floyd. There's a lot of trickiness to this slate, as some playoff-secure teams might want to go easy on their starters (or their primary players). Early in the Tuesday AM, I'll be back to analyze the final fiesta of the fantasy year.
And while you're adding pitchers for your baseball trophy, you might want to add Rashard Mendenhall, too. I hear he's the new closer for the Steelers. Andy Behrens has more, below, in the Yahoo! Fantasy Minute.
