2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Due to injuries I picked up Miley, Masterson, Dickey and Norris. It's a very deep league. I obviously wasn't pleased with the latest results. Do I move on to the next group or have patience with some of these guys and which ones?
(LakeRaMan from San Gabriel)
It depends on how deep your league is I guess and who the "next ones" are. In order, I'd hang onto R.A. Dickey, Bud Norris, Wade Miley, and Justin Masterson. (Mike Gianella)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)How will Wade Miley fare as a Red Sox?
(Gravybill1 from The Heart of America)
I don't think he'll be all that different from what he was in Arizona; an inning eating #4 starter that doesn't blow you away but keeps the team in the game and occasionally turns in a gem. (Mark Anderson)
2013-07-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Was Wade Miley's 2012 season an aberration?
(Sully from Baltimore)
Yes (Doug Thorburn)
2013-05-29 18:30:00 (link to chat)Who would you rather have the rest of the year? Liriano or Miley?
(Steve. from Denver, Colorado)
Hi Steve.

At the moment, I'd rather have Francisco Liriano. Wade Miley has struggled with his control of late and is the kind of pitcher who doesn't have a lot of margin for error with the walks in order to be a productive arm. The deeper the format, the tougher this decision is. In a mixed league, I think Liriano is a no-brainer. He has been pitching great and the worst case scenario is an injury. If that happens, you pick someone else up. In NL-only where getting 170+ innings from your starting pitchers is a priority because of the paucity of SP replacements in the free agent pool, it's more of a toss up due to the risk that Liriano won't get there. Assuming a standard mixed format, though, give me Liriano. (Mike Gianella)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is this years Wade Miley? Todd Frazier?
(Tony from Iowa)
Robbie Erlin, Josh Vitters (Paul Sporer)
2012-08-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)I've been really surprised Wade Miley continues to put up really good numbers. Would you expect regression next year, or do you think he's capable of putting up similar numbers?
(Lewis26 from New York)
He's definitely not 2.80-ERA good. Some big regression is coming, but if he can wind up as a 4.00-4.25 ERA pitcher, owners should be happy with him. And I think there's a good chance that's the kind of pitcher he is. (Derek Carty)
2012-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Sam Who will be more productive this year, Wade Miley or Patrick Corbin? Also - who takes over as Houston's closer if Myers is traded? Thanks
(Ed from Cranford, NJ)
I like Corbin a little bit more, but Miley has a stronger grip on a rotation spot, I think. I'm not a huge fan of either, though I'd gladly start either one in San Diego, LA or San Francisco.

Carpenter. (Sam Miller)
2012-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)When do we see Bauer hit the bigs?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
Second favorite Jeff Mathis story is when I accidentally submitted that three times.

I hate to just assume this for every top prospect, but I assume he's up in late June like the rest of 'em. And Wade Miley gets the starts when Joe Saunders or Josh Collmenter goes down early. (Sam Miller)
