MLB Two Start Pitchers - Week 2 (April 9-16)


I hate writing intro paragraphs and I rarely read intro paragraphs. I apologize if you take a lot of time to write them, but to me they are just filler and rarely bring value to the content. An article listing two-start pitchers doesn't need an intro so to put it bluntly, I'm not going to write one. Instead, each week I will tell you a funny story or joke that hopefully entertains you. I would much rather do that than bore you with inane drivel. Here goes...

I was talking to a friend the other day and he was telling me about how he supports a kid in Africa for only 47 cents per week. It makes him feel like he is making a difference in the world and he has gleaned a great deal of self-gratification from the kind act. Hearing how good it made him feel, I decided to do the same. I want to feel good too, so I am now sending $1.41 per month and supporting three kids in Africa. It's really a great deal. All I had to do was pay for plane tickets to send my kids over there, but the amount I will save on college tuition alone, has brought me a great sense of joy.

As much of a Tigers fan as I am, I recognize that for fantasy purposes, it's wise to target pitchers who are facing Detroit.
