This time of year, the stats can be pretty diluted. With almost 5 months under our belts, hot and cold streaks aren’t so obvious. Keeping track of how players are doing over the last 3 weeks is a strategy that can get you a few extra points here or there.
Everybody knows that C.C. Sabathia has been white-hot since his trade a month ago. But do you know that Armando Galarraga has just as many wins and that Tim Lincecum has more K’s than Sabathia over that time frame? And have you seen that Aubrey Huff and Melvin Mora have been killing the ball in August?
Grabbing the hot hand and riding his streak can be big for your squad. A little research is all you need.
