Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Sep 3

Yesterday was a disappointing day. Wade Miley did exactly as I expected, but my team was tanked from the start by Shane Greene’s implosion against the Red Sox. Greene had been extremely consistent, but Boston’s big name bats chose that to to erupt. My three hidden players were Joe Panik (14.00 points), Luis Valbuena (14.00 points), and Greene (-6.00 points). Tuesday’s Official...

Miley's effort wasted in Padres walk-off

SAN DIEGO -- Wade Miley got the Arizona Diamondbacks through seven innings of a 1-1 game. Evan Marshall struck out the side with runners and first and third in the eighth. Then Brad Ziegler served up Cory Spangenberg's first career home run with one out in the ninth, which gave the San Diego Padres a 2-1 victory against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Sep 1

First off, sorry for the two-day absence of this daily post. We had some technical difficulties as last week wound to a close that prevented us from generating our daily rankings, but those issues have been sorted out and today we’re back in business with Tuesday’s rankings! Derek Holland is back after making six minor league rehab starts. His reward? The first place Royals...

Pitcher Profile: Wade Miley Still K-ing Like A Wrecking Ball

Man it was a crazy weekend!  I think the biggest event was I saw a dude with a Fangraphs shirt on.  Way to wear your heart on your sleeve!  With a 79.8% confidence.  Then my boy James Paxton was straight up nasty, striking out the White Sox in order in the first inning and turning in a good start.  Pour the syrup, hoser!  Oh, and I got engaged... But despite all that hooplah...

D-backs' starting streak comes to an end

PHOENIX -- All good things must come to an end, and so it was for the Diamondbacks' string of strong starts. Arizona starters had a 2.13 ERA in the past eight games, and Wade Miley had pitched the best game of the bunch, throwing 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a victory at Cincinnati on July 30. But Miley was not himself Tuesday, and Kansas City took early advantage. "I flat...

Sweet home, Arizona: Royals return to desert and let the good times fly

The Royals set foot on Arizona soil again, and crazy offensive things began to happen. The Royals, the team that has pounded Cactus League pitching the past two springs but saw that offense vanish in the regular seasons, suddenly muscled up again as they returned to the Valley of the Sun. The Royals whacked three home runs, totaled 15 hits in all, and rolled to a 12-2 thumping of...

Royals bash the D-backs

PHOENIX -- Billy Butler had a three-run homer among his four hits, Nori Aoki hit a grand slam and the Kansas City Royals gave Danny Duffy some rare run support by bashing the Arizona Diamondbacks 12-2 on Tuesday night. Kansas City battered Wade Miley (7-8) from the start, scoring 10 runs off him by the fifth inning. Salvador Perez had the first big blow with a three-run homer in...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Wade Miley Is Getting Better

Wade Miley dug himself quite a hole in April, posting a 5.36 ERA and allowing opposing batters to post a .349 wOBA against him. Pitching that poorly in April assures two things: either your line will never look good or you’ll have to pitch really, really well the rest of the season to have a decent line. It’s difficult to have a good season after spending 42 innings allowing...

Phillies get to Miley, take series opener

PHILADELPHIA -- Domonic Brown homered, doubled and drove in three runs to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. Grady Sizemore had three hits, including the 1,000th of his career, with a double and an RBI for Philadelphia, which had a rare offensive outburst. The Phillies, who entered 12th in the NL in runs, scored at least...

Miley battles but stays hot in D-backs win

PHOENIX -- With as high as Wade Miley had set the bar through his first three starts in July, it didn't take much for the Diamondbacks left-hander to have his worst outing of the month. But to apply such a label to Miley's performance against the Cubs on Saturday is misleading. He had to battle a bit but Miley continued his red-hot month with an efficient night that earned...

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, Jul 19-21

As I mentioned in Friday’s rankings, for the second half I’ve elected to show the projected ROS ERA from Steamer (link below). This number is a key input for the rankings and often when there’s a ranking that looks suspect, it’s because Steamer is more or less bullish than the general public. On Saturday, Wade Miley is the day’s top pitcher facing Travis Wood and the Cubs...

David Peralta and Gerardo Parra each added two hits for the Diamondbacks, who won their fourth in six games. Marco Scutaro went hitless in two at-bats with a walk in his season debut for the Giants, who...

WATCH: Most exciting walkoffs of the week

This week, we’ve got some extra inning walk offs, a walk off grand slam, and yes, some walk offs that were self-inflicted by the losing team. June 30th, Athletics vs Tigers A walk off grand slam? That’s awesome. Good on you, Rajai Davis. He could have just put one in the gap or the corner to tie the game, but he wanted the full monty. July 1st, Diamondbacks vs Pirates When...

Miley, Goldschmidt stave off sweep

ATLANTA -- Paul Goldschmidt doesn't often stand and stare at his homers. This time he had to look, just to make sure his drive stayed fair. He liked what he saw. Wade Miley earned his first win since early May, Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Atlanta 3-1 on Sunday to end the Braves' nine-game winning streak. Goldschmidt ripped an inside pitch...

Game 83: Pirates 3 Diamondbacks 2

I have this form post stowed away that I feel the need to break out from time to time. It goes a little bit like this: As fans, we always like to put things in terms of what our favorite team does, but sometimes, you really have to flip it onto the other team’s terms. Some nights the Pirates aren’t bad, it’s just that the other team is a little bit better. That’s what happened...

Pirates 3, D-Backs 2

This one felt all too familiar, like the summer of 2013 when the Pirates would just find all kinds of ways to win games out of nowhere. The Pirates had no business winning this game – they were totally dominated by Wade Miley for eight innings, and while Jeff Locke pitched well again, a couple of soft hits and a defensive miscue put a couple runs on the board for Arizona. But...

3-run 9th spoils Miley's stellar outing

PITTSBURGH -- Starling Marte hit a two-run double to tie the game with one out in the ninth inning and then scored on pinch-hitter Ike Davis' single two batters later as the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied for a 3-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. The Pirates were shut down for eight innings by Arizona starter Wade Miley before rallying in the ninth. Neil Walker...

Cleveland, Arizona troubled by starting pitching

The Cleveland Indians and Arizona Diamondbacks have poor starting rotations. A matchup in Phoenix between Justin Masterson and Wade Miley figures to provide further evidence of this. Masterson has been one of baseball's worst pitchers on the road, and the same can be said of Miley at home heading into Tuesday night's opener of a two-game series. Cleveland starters are posting...

Miley dominant at points before Campana walks off Brewers

PHOENIX -- Tony Campana was the unlikely hero and Brad Ziegler gained a measure of redemption, even if he didn't look at it that way. The light-hitting Campana singled home Martin Prado from third base with two outs in the ninth inning to give the Arizona Diamondbacks a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night. Ziegler (3-1), who gave up the deciding grand slam...

Four solo home runs doom Miley

PHOENIX -- Whatever the explanation -- poor pitches, bad luck, aggressive hitters or otherwise -- four home runs did in the Diamondbacks on Sunday, dispelling any notion that solo shots can't beat you.  "You give up four of them they can beat you," D-backs starting pitcher Wade Miley said. Miley gave up each of the homers in a 4-3 loss to the Reds at Chase Field, continuing...
