David Hale, Atlanta Braves -- If you need strikeouts this weekend, Hale is not your man. Even with the Braves visiting the swing-and-miss Mets, Hale isn't likely to rack up gaudy strikeout numbers. If you need a win, though, Hale is a great choice to stream. The Braves have been on fire in the early going, propelled by Freddie Freeman and a pitching staff that has allowed 40 runs -- the fewest in the league -- in 15 games. Hale struggled the last time he saw the Mets, walking five batters and allowing three earned runs in 4.1 innings, but as long as his control doesn't abandon him, he should have a better-than-average chance to pick up a win on Sunday.
