Matt Bishop | April 15th, 2019

STREAMER OF THE WEEK (OWNED: 70% CBS, 35% YAHOO, 14% ESPN)

Trevor Richards (4/15 vs. CHC, 4/21 vs. WAS)

2.00 ERA 1.11 WHIP 9.0 K/9 in 18.0 IP

Trevor Richards may have a 5.0 BB/9, but he is currently sporting a 14.7% swinging strike rate (10th in MLB) and a 32.4% o-swing (29th in MLB), which is well above the league average of 29.3%. He also has a 68.2% contact rate, which is the 9th lowest in the league and has yielded 11, 13 and 18 swinging strikes in his last 3 starts. Opposing batters are currently hitting .088 against his changeup, which has resulted in a 23.3% swinging strike rate. Pair this with 2 struggling offenses in the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals, paired with a home pitchers park, Trevor Richards should be in for a solid Week 3.

3 Struggling Teams That Will Improve, 3 That Will Not

John Supowitz  | April 11th, 2019

Red Sox 3-9 (5th in the AL East)

Probably the biggest surprise so far is the horrific start for the defending world champions. The big reason right now is the pitching’ the team ranks near the bottom in almost every major statistical category including ERA (27th), ER (30th), BAA (26th), opponent total bases (30th), home runs given up (29th), hits given up (28th) and lists of things I can mention. We believed the bullpen would be Red Sox’s Achilles heel, but it been starting pitching. The best ERA among starters with more than one start is David Price with 6.00. CY Young winning ace Chris Sale is having a notable a rough start, giving up 13 ER in 13 innings. Continue reading

I know it’s easy to tell you not to panic when you lost by 100 or dropped 5 spots in your roto rankings, but Week 1 losses hurt and they cut you deep. And no matter how long the season is or how deep you think your team may be, you don’t feel whole for a while. So there is really not much I can tell that you already don’t know. But please remember that everything you are about to read should be prefaced with “I know it’s a small sample size, but” and is simply an observation or highlight of something that is outside the norm compared to a player’s career profile Continue reading
