It's All-Star week, which means a truncated fantasy schedule. With teams only playing three or four games this week there won't be any two-start pitchers. However, there will be plenty of opportunities for fantasy teams to get off to a good start in the second half. So join me and my musical guest, garage-rock icons Mudhoney, as we give you the insights and analysis to help you win your fantasy week and get the second half started off right.
It's been a while since we talked starting pitching in the Hidden Gems section. As usual, we'll look at players owned in less than 20 percent of Yahoo! leagues who can help your roster. Granted, pickings are thin, but there is some value if you look hard enough.
