Well, we’re halfway-ish through this unique 2020 MLB season and here’s a list of postponed games thus far:
… what happens when players are still testing positive at the end of September? We’re going to run out of days.
This is all just… so depressing. Let’s just move along with our regularly scheduled programming.
So you need some streaming pitchers for the week starting September 7th? I’m here to help.

Next, I look at the pitchers these teams are facing next week and give you my quick take on whether or not you should start him.
NOTE: The scheduled start date is as of Friday morning. We’re one COVID positive test, rainout or protest away from these dates shifting. That is why I’m also including starting pitchers not currently scheduled to face these struggling lineups.
