The Daily Grind provides daily match-up advice based on my every-morning waiver wire search. I welcome advice to help make this column more effective. Ownership rates are from Yahoo!
Alex Cobb has a streamable match-up against the White Sox. Consider hanging on to him if you’re in a deep league.
Anthony Bass faces everyone’s favorite basement dwellers in the battle of 17-win teams. Only one team can boast the fewest wins in the NL after today.
Christian Friedrich draws the surprisingly non-awful Astros. Still, it’s a weak and exploitable offense.
So tomorrow is one of those times when NOBODY is playing. Three games.
If you insist on streaming a starter, your options quite literally end at Jeremy Guthrie. Sit this one out. To be doubly clear, that is not a recommendation of Guthrie.
Carlos Gomez might get the start. Or he might not. It’s hard to say if he’ll play when there’s a righty on the mound.
I’m told John Rocker is “throwing political hardballs” now. That is clearly a man who deserves his stage.
Homer Bailey worked out well for me, how about you? He earned the win: 9 IP, 5 K, 1.00 ERA, 0.56 WHIP
I warned you about bad innings with Joe Blanton, but yesterday just went badly. There seems to be an inverse correlation between my recommendation and his performance, which is frustrating. 5 IP, 4 K, 10.80 ERA, 2.2 WHIP
Jarrod Parker skated in and out of danger in a no-run, no decision: 6 IP, 4 K, 0.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP
An unexciting 1-for-4 for Jason Kubel.
Seth Smith was 1-for-3 with one run.
Craig Gentry had a solid night. He went 2-for-3 with a walk and one stolen base.
Wigginton pulled a Kubel by posting an empty 1-for-4.
