Welcome back to streaming made easy otherwise known as Field of Streams. Let us get this out of the way, right away, the recommended streamers started the week off a bit rough, with two of Monday’s recommendations allowing 11 hits and, as it should be, not garnering wins. But the proverbial ship was soon righted, as evidenced by the overall numbers. The nine weekday streamers went 4-3, with a 3.58 ERA, a 1.27 WHIP (not too shabby considering there were 22 hits allowed over the first two streams of the week, though) and a nice 9.06 K/9. Now, I am a big fan of K/9 and while I don’t have my official numbers handy (read: I am too lazy to look this up) I think, unofficially, this was the best K/9 week of the season for my streamers. Alright now, settle down, now, I know you are chomping at the bit for next week’s streamers, but you know the drill, standard operating procedure says we look at last weeks Ups, Downs and What Have Yous.
