Diamondback Rumors: Wade Miley could be dealt

Since 2012, when he finished second in the Rookie of the Year voting, Wade Miley has been the most consistent starter for the Arizona Diamondbacks.  Even in last year's disappointing season, Miley was able to make a team high 33 starts.  But although he is arguably the team's best starer, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe is reporting that he may be dealt this offseason...

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...

While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 137 (AZ vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres (66-71) defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks (57-81) 2-1 on a walk-off home run by pinch-hitter Cory Spangenberg in the ninth inning last night, Spangenberg’s first Major League home run.

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

Dodgers @ D’Backs August 27, 2014: Scott Van Slyke’s Best-Case Scenario

You know me, and you know I put very, very little importance on pitcher-vs-batter stats. One pitcher doesn’t face one batter enough to generate any kind of real sample size, and even if you could, that means that it took place over so many years as to render most of the data irrelevant.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Aug 27

Yesterday I suggested a Giants stack against Jorge De La Rosa plus Matt Shoemaker in the rotation. Shoemaker and Buster Posey delivered big and my pair of Dodgers chipped in solid efforts, but the rest of the Giants did little. Overall the lineup scored 114.30 points, finished outside of the money in the Daily Moonshot, and won most of its double ups. In terms of rank, it beat 61...

Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, Aug 27

Wednesday gives us 29 starters as of this writing with Seattle’s pitcher still TBD, and this time we see some big names near the top. As for the rest, let’s turn to the rankings! Drew Pomeranz gets the start for Oakland against the Astros. He’ll face Brad Peacock, which represents a great shot at the win. Houston is solid against lefties, but there’s still massive upside...

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...

Duffy finally gets some run support, Royals rout Diamondbacks 12-2

PHOENIX -- The Kansas Royals had given Danny Duffy almost no run support over his previous four starts and little all season, so they were anxious give him something, anything against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ten runs on three swings did the trick nicely. Billy Butler had a three-run homer among his four hits, Nori Aoki hit a grand slam and the Royals gave Duffy some rare run support...

Series Preview: Royals at Arizona Diamondbacks, August 5-7

The Kansas City Royals head to the desert to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-game interleague series. The Royals are 8-13 all-time against the Diamondbacks but 4-2 when playing in Arizona. They last played in Arizona in 2005. In that series, the Royals won two of three, but in the loss, a young Zack Greinke hit a home run. Alex Gordon learned all about that home run during...

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...

Is it time to bury the Reds for this season?

As of July 29, the Reds and Marlins both have a 52-53 record. Yet the difference in the perception of that record two days before MLB’s July 31 trade deadline is fascinating. Joe Lucia touched on this earlier in Tuesday’s Dugout Digest. The Marlins are viewed as a sleeper contender, having won eight of their past nine games (after losing six in a row). Miami is now six games...

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...
