Halo Haven

Posted By Trevor Stewart On Jul 12 2010 @ 2:28 am In Fantasy Baseball | No Comments

Hey if Paul the octopus can predict all of the World Cup games correctly I should be able to easily navigate the world of fantasy baseball flawlessly, right? Well, here goes nothing. Sometimes when teams get new stadiums it can affect their pitchers. Sometimes for thebetter, sometimes for the worse. In the case of the Minnesota Twins, Target Field isn’t the power-hitter’s paradise we thought it would be, except for dead pull hitters. But some of the Minnesota pitching staff is still getting knocked around. For instance…

Drop: Minnesota Twins SP Kevin Slowey (61% owned)- Slowey has been inconsistent most of the season. He gets a few good starts, then lays a few eggs. Lately, his ankle has been giving him some trouble and that can serve as an excuse for now, but there are so many more consistently good pitchers on the free agents list. Slowey has made it into the sixth inning three of the last five starts, but allowed 5 runs in two of those. The other two starts were 4.2 innings where he gave up 5 runs and a 1.2 inning outing where he was battered for 7 runs. You can do better than Slowey’s roller coaster. For example…

Add: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Joel Pineiro (50% owned)- Pineiro has always been a guy I liked. He was a former Mariner and came into his own there. He can be streaky, but right now he is on fire. He has found his “halo haven” in Anaheim. He is in a groove. In the last six games Pineiro has pitched at least  seven innings five times, including a complete game where he allowed only one earned run. He has won six games in a row and although he may be due for a hiccup, that’s life in the MLB. Consider it a speed bump on the road to victories for Pineiro. He is on his game right now and you should definitely consider adding him to your pitching roster soon before more people realize he is sizzling in the summertime.
