Stream Police: Jarrod Parker is here to help

Roto Arcade

Time to look at the Monday probables for streaming purposes. As always, consider everyone tentative on this list, and double-check every move you make.

Ari Gold Package
Jaime Garcia vs. CIN
Jarrod Parker vs. TEX
Kyle Kendrick at WAS

Parker hasn't hit the wall down the stretch, posting a 2.31 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in September (six walks, 27 strikeouts). And you love dialing him up in Oakland, where his ratios are terrific (2.49/1.17).

Michael Silver Package
Alex Cobb vs. BAL
Paul Maholm at PIT
Wei-Yin Chen at TB
Bronson Arroyo at STL

Maholm got his groove back in his previous turn, and obviously Pittsburgh's offense has left early to beat the traffic. Sounds good to me.

Bronze Package
Rick Porcello at KC
Hector Santiago at CLE
Aaron Harang vs. SF
Clay Buchholz at NYY
Clayton Richard at MIL
John Lannan vs. PHI
Jeff Locke vs. ATL
Jeurys Familia at MIA
Jason Berken vs. HOU

Porcello will be favored in the game and he's riding shotgun with Detroit's offense. But when is he going to look like a first-round pick? He hasn't had much to do with the team's late run; Porcello is 3-7 in the second half, with a 4.94 ERA and 1.49 WHIP. Sure, ground balls are great things to induce - but maybe not so much when the Tigers infield is behind you. … Harang has let us down a million times before, but a home date against the playoff-preparing Giants sounds reasonable to me. … Richard has no strikeout upside and I'm petrified to use any visiting pitcher in Milwaukee these days.

Participant Ribbon
Bruce Chen vs. DET
Martin Perez at OAK
Corey Kluber vs. CWS
Aaron Laffey vs. MIN
Esmerling Vazquez at TOR
Fernando Abad at CHC
Drew Pomeranz at ARI

Perez let us down at Safeco, and then had a meltdown in Texas the following turn. I can't see why you'd want to risk anything with him now.
