    Two start pitchers for week 8 – fantasy baseball 2012 May 21st – May 27th

    Advertisement

    There are a limited number of quality arms available for week 8 fantasy baseball, meaning this would be a great week to pick up a sleeper two start pitcher, but they are few and far between.  You will notice there are very few tier 1 and 2 pitchers, and a plethora of tier 4 and 5 guys.  I will attempt to point out the options that could have decent stats in week 8.

    All these start dates are current as of May 15th, 2012, but could change due to rainouts

    If you have any questions about which pitchers to pick up for your particular format, please direct them to the forums.
