  1. Adrian Peterson was pissed when he read this and realized Niese wasn't even benched for one start.
  2. And you need Fernando Valenzuela to round out your "bloatation" And perhaps Hector Villanueva as a backup catcher.
  3. Of course, right after I dropped him darnit.
  4. This guy is reminding of Erik Bedard, circa 5 or so years ago. He'd have these teasing flashes of brilliance coupled with consistent occurrences of various injuries. Could it really be just bad luck for Brett, or is it from poor preparation/conditioning?
  5. You didn't speak too soon. This was mentioned on the previous page. We were just conjecturing that, since Anderson left the game last night with a flare-up of the ankle, if he's unable to make his start, Straily will be recalled without starting in AAA.
  6. I would assume his name is staying on speed-dial should BandAid-erson not be able to start.
  7. I'm throwing him out there tomorrow, as I've been waiting patiently for his next shot. I have a little hesitation though, as the Angels torched him last year to the tune of 6 HRs in 2 games (4 were at home). And he has yet to have success at the O, However, that is a small sample size, and the meat of the Angels bats (except Crackilton) are all righties. I'm hoping he's fueled and fired up to give Oakland every reason NOT to send him back to Sac-town.
  8. I would really like to get a double-start out of him next week. What do put the odds at that happening?
  9. There is a fine difference between hype and praise. What Straily did the past two seasons in the minors deserves a lot of praise. It isn't hype. No one was drafting this guy before Julio Teheran. That is hype. Hell Straily went undrafted in almost every league out there. He was owned in 1% of leagues when the season started. Dominating the PCL is not easy. A pitcher who dominated in The PCL is a pitcher I'm much more likely to take chance on than some guy who is in a rotation right now but is just an average pitcher who has never progressed as a player. I agree, and I think the "praise" or "hype" or whatever you want to call it is indeed well-deserved. I was one of the few who drafted Straily and will patiently keep him in the wings.
  10. A 1.93 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 11.1K/9 in the PCL will get anyone hype.
  11. Looks like he's starting in AAA today. No such luck this week.
  12. I would say the odds are pretty good.
  13. Right there with ya. Holding Straily (and Bundy for future).
