  1. Singleton grounded out next. then there was a strikeout.
  2. Common guys....can't even be bothered to read a boxscore? Morneau went 2-3 with a BB. That must have been one hell of a Pinch hit appearance. Justin Morneau returned to action on Friday with a pinch-hit RBI double off Jonathan Broxton to tie the game in the ninth inning. Unfortunately for he and the Rockies, the Reds would retake the lead and the game the following frame. Morneau was scratched from Thursday's lineup and sat out Friday with a stiff neck, but he's expected back in the lineup on Saturday.
  3. Seems like a dangerous start to me, HR prone pitcher v HR hitting team. Much like Griffin last night its could be a fine line between solid start and disaster depending how many are on base when the ball leaves the yard.
  4. .259 BABIP is not likely to be sustainable (O.Co helps), but 59% strand rate is rock bottom low for a solid pitcher who has kept the ball in the park (4% HR/FB is unsustainable as well). that's why the ERA is bad but the WHIP is good. I'd expect them to go in opposite directions. I think holding him really means expecting the Ks to materialize. otherwise he's just sort of a meh, start at O.Co type of pitcher. prototypical mediOAKer as Grey @Razzball would say. Just for the Razzball reference you get a +1. Grey is just another blowhard but at least he's entertaining.
  5. I'm tossing him back in the FA pool. His upcoming schedule is @ TEX, @SEA, v STL so I won't be using him in two of the next three. There are some pretty solid streams available this week, so I'm going to take advantage and hopefully Straily will still be around for the @ SEA start if not, thanks for your contributions kid.
  6. Brutal is putting it mildly. They are now the 2nd worst offence in baseball on the season and over the past 2 weeks they have a wRC+ of 44. That's a weighted metric so average is 100, its extremely rare for a team to be much below 60 or higher than 130, so that gives you an idea of just how bad they have been.
  7. You just forgot to check Seattle's weather forecast.
  8. its about the K/9, cant really compare him to Scott Baker, cmon, he might have got lit, but 6 k's in 4 inn is good Baker had solid MLB k rates. He was 7+ every year. That is probably right around where Straily will end up settling in at. And Baker had very low walk rates like Straily will probably have. Both had virtually the same exact stuff. Baker had better stuff, if Straily can end up as good as Baker minus the injuries his owners should consider themselves lucky.
  9. Love all the people saying he sucks. The reality is his matchup sucked. I sat him so I am happy right now, I'll start him when he gets back to the O.Co
  10. If you only use these threads to spot if a player gets called up or sent down wouldn't Twitter better suit your needs? No one is forcing you to read through opinions. You can find other places to get what you're looking for instead of insulting guys trying to provide info. I don't tweet i got no problems with opinions of value, projections, etc... THats why i am here. But personal attacks and arguing over if a guy in the minors is an ace or not is a joke I quite liked the exchange. I'm on the camp that doesn't see one iota of 'Ace' potential in Dan Straily. Can he be fantasy relevant pitching in the O.Co? Sure. Ace, sorry just don't see it.
  11. Yes he's off a suspension for PEDs you're right. But that's still bad as where will he stand without his PEDs? Jarrod Parker is the best pitcher in Oakland right now. But I say Straily has more upside because he has way more strikeout potential. Trust me I love Jarrod Parker I actually work with the scout who helped Arizona originally draft and sign him. Chances are Parker is the better player and will have a better career. But I bet you that Straily's best 2 years are better than Parker's best two years by the end of their careers. Brett Anderson, he has very little strikeout potential and you can't even count on 30 starts out of him in a season. Since 2010 innings pitched for Anderson 112.33, 83.33, and 35 innings. I have to side with FearTheBeard and CMilne on this one, I think Straily has limited upside and caps out at a #3 at best. This is for you: http://www.parlezsport.com/cal/fan.club.aspx/Daniel_Straily
  12. I'd rather take Hamels and Greinke so I won't be owning tiny Tim, unless he's in the midst of a control slump that he's had the past two seasons and I swoop in on the buy low.
