Dealing with extreme home/road splits

Pitching in road games versus at home is not a skill. Let's get that out of the way first. Sure, members of certain rotations are aided by spacious home ballparks, but not everyone in that situation is unusable on the road. Those in fantasy baseball daily formats should pay attention to ballpark splits and act accordingly.
In honor of what San Diego Padres right-hander Edinson Volquez accomplished Thursday, nearly no-hitting the woeful Houston Astros (just look at that lineup) and the fact I still wouldn't trust him and his penchant for frequent free passes away from Petco Park, here are pitchers I'd stream only at home, and then a few other notables I feel do not belong to be treated this way.
