i know i'll be watching to see how Straily does, as i'm sure a few others will be.

as much as the angles bats have been off to a slow start this year, that lineup is still pretty potent.  gonna be a tough test for the kid.

Hamilton is making Angels look foolish.
What is both surprising and delightful is that spectators are allowed, and even expected, to join in the vocal part of the game.... There is no reason why the field should not try to put the batsman off his stroke at the critical moment by neatly timed disparagements of his wife's fidelity and his mother's respectability. ~George Bernard Shaw

I believe its more that he is far beyond most AAA batters mentally, setting up his pitches, sequencing, etc. You can also get away with a little more in the minors, hence a guy like Bauer living up in the zone and having success there and not having any really in MLB. Straily won't throw much harder than 89-91, so he can't make any mistakes or they get crushed. I think the comp of Javier Vazquez past his 30th bday makes the most sense.

Trumbo smashed that.  One of the longest/hardest-hit home runs I've seen at the Coliseum since probably the Bash Brothers played there.

I'm pretty sure the ball Trumbo hit didn't land yet. Might be in the Pacific.

What is the source for all the Straily hype? THe minor league numbers? He's one of those guys where the numbers and the scouts views of him don't line up. When you watch him pitch he's not impressive. As noted he lives up in the zone with a 90 MPH heater. It might have some late life and deception that gets people to swing and miss but man is he going to give up some homers on that.

The 12K game against the stros they were just swinging and missing endlessly on 90 middle up.  They just kept swinging through it.

Yeah I posted in his thread...you have LAA (Trout, Pujols, Hamilton, Trumbo) for a guy who gives up too many HRs but also rooting for 2nd start @NYY?
Spot start v. the likes of SEA, HOU, CLE, MIN, etc. Teams that won't kill him with the long ball.
