Quick Fantasy Baseball Streaming Options for 3/31/11
It’s Opening Day. While Tim Lincecum, C.C. Sabathia, Justin Verlander, Clayton Kershaw, Matt Carpenter, Yovani Gallardo, and Jered Weaver are no-brainer fantasy starts, there is another veteran pitcher to consider.
Derek Lowe, Atlanta Braves @ Washington Nationals
Lowe was 16-12 last year with a 4.00 ERA. He has averaged 15 wins the past three years. He went 2-3 against Washington last year with a 3.52 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and 30 strikeouts in 30-2/3 innings. His lifetime numbers against the Nationals are 9-7 with a 3.64 ERA. The Braves are playing at 1:05 EST and Lowe was 9-3 with a 3.62 ERA in day games last year. He’s not a sexy pick by any means, but he’s a decent bet to start you off with a “W” in the win category.
