Dan Straily 2019

Recommended Posts

I spotted this one the minute the Marlins released him. Smart move, shores up the rotation, but still sad to see Jackson go.

Good fit for both.  To me, he's one of the best poster children for the generation of 4th and 5th starters being unseated by the rising middle-distance pitchers.  The old poles of 6 IP starter and 1 IP reliever are melting.

All of Straily, Cashner and Cobb hit me at the level of guys whose medium-term desirability to clubs will be enhanced if they can not be discombobulated when an opener pushes their warm-up routine to after the National Anthem.  Those rhythms are deeply ingrained in their baseball DNA though, I'm sure.

It'll help his July trade value if that competency can be incubated in the next three months.  Let Tanner Scott take care of the top half of lefty heavy lineups.

We’re going to trade him for Drew Jackson at the trade deadline if he pitches well.

Straily has 4.126 years on service time which means he is under the O's control next season if they want him.

I really like this move.    Potentially it stabilizes our rotation in a big way, and cheaply.    And having a relatively cheap option for next year is nice.

I really would love to know what his other offers were. Even with the trade bonus he's making about what Karns is making, who hasn't pitched successfully in over a year.

Cobb had a minor league option left and agreed to being optioned. Straily has no minor league options left. He is on a major league contract. To go to the minors he would have to be DFA'd and clear waivers.

 

Why can’t they do that with Davis?

Great move.

Alex Cobb (31)- 2.8 WAR over past three seasons. Making $14 million this season. 

Andrew Cashner (32)- 4.6 WAR over past three seasons. Making $8 million this season.

Dan Straily (30)- 5.7 WAR over past three seasons. Making just 500k this season.

    • Yeah, it's 84. 50 (base) + 22 (22 outs) + 6 (completed 5th, 6th, and 7th innings) + 10 (strikeouts) - 2 (for 1 hit) - 2 (for 2 BB). 
    • Strikeouts count for a lot in game score.   Personally I’d prefer a complete game shutout with fewer K’s to a 7.1 inning shutout with 10 K’s, but I’m certainly not complaining about Wojo’s outing.   Edit: Just saw BarclaySouthway’s post indicating the game score was 84, not 94.     That seems more likely.  
    • Yeah, that's weird because Wojciechowski's game log has yesterday's outing as a game score of 84. Link That was a great performance, but 9th all time while only going 7 1/3 just doesn't sound right to me.
    • Absolutely.   I thought during the game I heard Gary Thorne say something about New York, though I may not have heard correctly.
    • You very clearly stated her value was her looks and not her intellectual contributions to the broadcast which probably says more about you than it does about her.  Best of luck to Sara. 
    • Hunter interviewed her on the radio pregame, and she said that she was not yet able to reveal what her next job would be but she would be soon. So this looks more like she is leaving for another opportunity then MASN getting rid of her.
    • Game 98, July 21 There were some excellent defensive plays in yesterday’s one hitter, four of which I’ll mention here. - With nobody out and a runner on 1st in the 6th inning, Chris Davis gloved a hard-hit ball over the bag, stepped on the edge facing home plate, took one more step towards home as he pivoted, and fired a strike to 2B that allowed Villar to apply the tag and complete a DP.  Davis has always been very good at feeds to 2B and this was a good example. - With Givens in the game in the 9th, Devers laced a rising liner to RF that Mancini went back on and almost misjudged it but he leaped and made a nice outstretched catch. - The next hitter hit a ball in the RCF gap but Wilkerson raced over and made a nice backhand catch while running pretty much full speed. - The final hitter of the game hit a ground ball in the 1B/2B hole, but Chris Davis made a diving stop and an accurate flip to Givens, who hustled over to cover 1B on the play.    The defense was in a RH pull shift, so Davis was about halfway between 1st and 2nd when he made the stop.    The stop, the accurate throw from his knees at that distance, and Given’s presence of mind to get to 1B on a ball hit that far towards 2B were all very impressive.
