DateQuestionAnswer
2017-01-31 19:00:00 (link to chat)Do you believe in Dan Straily?
(RDBL2014 from Concord, CA)
I think a lot of Straily's 2016 was smoke and mirrors. The 119 cFIP, 4.61 DRA, and under eight K/9 don't instill a lot of confidence. That said, he's going to a better park, so maybe he's a good #4-ish type? (Mark Barry)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Rank these Theo Epstein trade fleecings: 1. Rangers - 2 trades (recevied Hendricks, Villanueva, Edwards, Grimm, Ramirez, and Olt for Dempster and Garza rentals (resulted in 0 WS)). 2. Orioles (received Jake Arrieta, Pedro Strop, and international bonus money for Scott Feldman and Steve Clevenger. 3. A's (received Addison Russell (!), Billy McKinney, and Dan Straily for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel (who promptly returned to Cubs in FA)). Also, are you still a little in shock that Billy Beane traded Addison Russell?
(Mark from Bleacher Nation)
That's a fun question.

The Arrieta trade, the Russell trade, and the Rangers trade. I was not in shock about it (nothing Beane does is on the shock level) but I was very surprised. (Mike Gianella)
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)I thought Dan Straily might've been a good bet for a rebound and a solid get for the Cubbies. Do you agree or was he a flash in the pan, leaving this past weekend as the new norm?
(Ryan from under the bleachers)
I think Straily is a good candidate also. Seeing what the Cubs have done with Arrieta, Straily could once again be a major league contributor. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)With the recent acquisition of the Addison Russel, Billy McKinney and Dan Straily do the Cubs now have the best farm in the league?
(Balki from Chicago)
Pretty good case; nobody can touch their impact bats; depth is obviously improving but it had a long way to go. I think Cubs and Twins are the two alphas of the minor league systems. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Mike! Big gan of the podcast. Give me three sleeper pitchers for this season (ideally post-hype guys).
(dbrosene from San Mateo, CA)
Hi dbrosene

The sleeper question depends on your league, but I'll go with Tyler Skaggs, Marco Estrada, and Dan Straily. Estrada is probably the biggest stretch as a "sleeper" but I can see all three of these pitchers being undervalued in standard mixed leagues and fitting the post hype description. (Mike Gianella)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the best chance to increase their K% and their Swinging Strike % in the upcoming year?Can you rank them? Dan Straily, Jarrod Parker, Ivan Nova, Kris Medlen, Garrett Richards, Dillon Gee, and finally Rick Porcello.
(allangustafson from Fun Diego )
I'll rank based on who I like the most, as I'm not sure on the potential % increases in either category: Parker, Nova, Medlen, Gee, Porcello, Richards. I think Parker is the clear #1 in this grouping, and I'm a big fan of Nova in 2014. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)I'm going for it in our AL only keeper league. Is it time to jettison Straily for help right now? If so how would you order Pettitte, Danks, and JSaunders? Also, is MSaunders a big donwgrade from Colby Rasmus? Thanks very much!
(conjoinedtwins from Orillia ON)
Hi to you both.

Flags fly forever. If Dan Straily can improve your team this year, do it.

Of those three pitchers, you have them in the right order. Andy Pettitte's ERA is high, but his peripheral numbers show a better pitcher lurking in there. John Danks has been OK, but I still have some concerns about how he'll hold up and he is a weaker play against stronger teams. Even in AL-only, Joe Saunders is an at-home play only. He's poison to your chances of winning if you start him on the road.

I wouldn't exactly call Michael Saunders a big downgrade from Colby Rasmus, but he is a downgrade. As Bret Sayre talked about on a recent Towers of Power fantasy podcast, Rasmus' batting average is fueled by a strong BABIP, and his BA isn't even THAT good. You're losing BA/runs/RBI with Saunders, but some of that is luck-dependent. I prefer Rasmus, but if you can improve your team elsewhere, Saunders is an acceptable replacement and isn't a zero. Good luck. (Mike Gianella)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)I'd love some help prioritizing some available Al SPs for the rest of the year: Phil Hughes, Alexi Ogando, John Danks, Dan Straily, RHernandez, and Erik Bedard. Thanks!!!!!
(Frank Finley from Jasper)
Heya Frank.

Think I'll go Ogando, Straily, Bedard, Danks, Roberto Hernandez and Phil Hughes. With a group like this, you're looking for upside and Ogando and Straily probably have the most upside of the group. Bedard has some upside but runs into problems with high pitch counts; if you're in a wins league, that's a problem. Danks is meh even for onlies, and I'm not a fan of Hernandez or Hughes. Both are risks even in only. (Mike Gianella)
2013-06-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Will need 3 pitchers for next week in 5x5...main need is saves but can use all categories...Suspects are Lyons, Gregerson, Jansen, Maholm, Turner, Tillman, Vargas...WW has guys like Phelps, Westbrook, Kendrick, Norris, Straily, Lohse, Gee, McCawthy, Archer...Suggestions please!
(LittleRon from WV)
If you need saves, keep an eye on the news regarding Huston Street (who is ready to begin a rehab assignment) and Brandon League (who might not be long for the ninth inning). Depending on the headlines there, either Gregerson or Jansen could take one of the three spots.

For the others, without taking the time to look closely at matchups, I'd roll with Paul Maholm and Dan Straily (who I believe will face the Mariners at the tail-end of the week, albeit with a start in Texas earlier). Also, I'd recommend checking out Paul Sporer's SP Planner on Friday for more info. (Daniel Rathman)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Brett...I'm in an 11 man mixed points league. roster limit is 26. we set lineups weekly. right now my starting pitchers are C.C., Yu, Hellickson, Samardzija, Edwin Jackson, Colon, Burnett, DeLaRosa, Nolasco, and Tillman. I would like to pick up Dan Straily to stash on my bench. But i've already got O. Taveras stashed at the moment with Cespedes taking up a roster spot as well. Just wondering if you recommend picking up Straily now, and if so what pitcher should i drop (or possibly Taveras) Thanks for the help Brett!
(eamuscatuli15 from Nebraska)
I'd drop either Colon or Nolasco for Straily. He's definitely worth a stash. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Just how sustainable are the A's pitchers this season? Have there been precedents over the years, where a rotation mainly using sophomore arms have continued to make good progress? And what of Colon?
(gavstone from UK)
I'm hedging my bets on Colon, and expect that he is just a placeholder for Dan Straily. The A's have an excellent player development team with a deep understanding of pitching mechanics, and the emphasis on mechanical repetition and efficiency helps to mold pitchers with strong command and repeatable release points. These elements can be underappreciated compared to raw velocity and sharp breaking stuff, but a fastball-changeup pitcher with great command can be very effective under the radar by inducing weak contact. So it may be tough to buy into the A's pitchers based on conventional approaches, but I expect them to continue to keep runs off the board.

The shocking thing about the A's this season is an offense that is outscoring the rest of the AL by 35%!

On the jukebox: Santana, "Samba Pa Ti" (Doug Thorburn)
2013-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has a bigger impact this season, Dan Straily or Trevor Bauer? Do you see Bauer sticking with one team for a few seasons or is he going to be frequently traded as teams get tired of him?
(Kyle P from FL)
I'm still a Bauer fan, so I'll say him in a vacuum, Straily if you want me to factor in the likelihood that their games matter in races. (I think Detroit runs away with the Central.)

As to your second part, I predict he'll stay with Cleveland for a while. They wanted him when the mishegas was already out there in the press and certainly in the internal baseball community, so I believe they knew what they were getting into. (Zachary Levine)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Trevor Bauer worth keeping (2 pitcher keepers, 2 hitter keepers) in a 14 team mixed standard scoring league for $3 even though he's not sure to have a spot in the rotation? Other options at that price would be Skaggs and Strailey. Thanks
(Andy from Chicago)
Of those three pitchers, Dan Straily is the guy I like most in a mixed, though quite honestly all three all borderline in that format even at such a cheap price. There is a lot of fungible talent at the bottom of the pitching pool in mixers. (Mike Gianella)
2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)Will Dan Straily produce enough in the bigs to warrant a late round flyer or are there better options.
(rupertoooo from Lorton, VA)
I think he'll produce in terms of K's & WHIP. HR rate tempers excitement. (Jason Collette)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rank for the long haul: Dan Straily, AJ Griffin, Tom Milone.
(Ryan from LA)
Sorry, I feel asleep thinking about it. (Jason Parks)
2013-01-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Dan,can you put these guys in order.....Jose Fernandez,Albert Almora,Solar,Zimmer,Syndergaard,Hedges,Andrew Heaney,Salvador Perez,Allen Webster,Aaron Sanchez and Dan Straily....thanks
(John from Boston)
Hey, John.

Sheesh, that's a lot of names. From a fantasy standpoint, and based on what I've read, I'd probably want to own Fernandez and Sanchez. I'm probably not qualified to put the others in order, so I'd suggest asking a member of our prospect team. (Daniel Rathman)
2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who from the following list of young 4th/5th starter talent types have the best chances at a solid 2013: Dan Straily, Jose Quintana, Joe Kelly, Drew Smyly, AJ Griffin, David Phelps, Erasmo Ramirez, and Patrick Corbin?
(Paul from DC)
I don't know if Kelly, Smyly, or Corbin will get a full slate of starts, I know Phelps won't. That leaves Griffin, Straily, Quintana, and Ramirez and I'd lean toward one of the first two. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dan Straily was dynamite at AA and AAA this year. What, if anything, will limit his success moving forward in the majors.
(Paul from DC)
When I saw Straily I saw a pitchability right-hander with slightly above-average secondary stuff based mostly on deception and total number of weapons than high pitch grades. He mixes his pitches well and throws strikes, and his fastball is a little better than the typical 92 mph heater because it holds its velocity more at the end of its path (as it crossed the plate) than the average fastball. I think Straily is a No. 3 at best, but he's ready to contribute now, and could turn into a poor-man's Dan Haren capable of 200 innings per year. Commanding the fastball and possibly ditching the curveball altogether and sticking with the slider-changeup combo may get him there. (Jason A. Churchill)

(Brian Oakchunas from Alameda, CA)
Straily has a very simple and efficient delivery that is easy to repeat, a skill set that will play huge dividends at any level. That said, some command pitchers who are light on stuff end up getting battered in the majors, a lesson that the Angels tried to teach the young lad on Wednesday. Straily has some solid stuff, but I am worried by the lack of velocity spread between his slider and change, as MLB hitters could capitalize if he only has two velo options. (Doug Thorburn)

(Sizzle from MA)
Straily is putting up ridiculous numbers this year. Midland is a tough place to pitch and he handled it with ease before being promoted to Triple-A. I want to believe in Straily because it's awesome when a 24th round pick makes it.

I haven't seen him pitch, nor am I an expert on prospects. Kevin Goldstein, who is, just talked about him yesterday and had glowing things to say: "His fastball features above-average velocity and command, and his slider is solid, but it's his changeup that has developed into an absolute weapon; an easy plus pitch with good deception in his delivery and plenty of late break. If the Athletics go with the plan of being both buyers and sellers in the next 12 days, a Bartolo Colon deal could create an opening for Straily, and he sure looked ready last night."

Without having seen Straily myself, KG's endorsement is good enough for me. (Geoff Young)
