2014-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in the playoff race in a 20-team dynasty (5x5's with OBP, XBH & QS, HLD): I gave Byron Buxton, Jon Gray, and Alcides Escobar. I received Justin Upton, Doug Fister, and Neil Walker. Essentially the type of trade you want to make as a Buxton owner, or did I sell short?

I...don't think I would've given Buxton for Upton, Gray for Fister. I think you came out behind on name value as I think you could've gotten more.

Upton is a good player though, I hope it works out for you. (Mauricio Rubio)

2014-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)What pitchers would you be targeting as buys/sells right now?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
The buys: Justin Verlander, Matt Cain, Doug Fister
The sells: Johnny Cueto, Scott Kazmir, Garrett Richards (Doug Thorburn)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)In a 5x5 roto league, what is the best strategy for moving up the ladder in WHIP?
(Zeus from Greece)
In a simple sense, it's about acquiring better pitchers. If you're not able to acquire much via the trade market, though, you're wise to look at the reliever market and claim guys who pitch often and limit baserunners. Essentially, the second-tier relievers that everyone largely ignores because they don't accumulate saves. If you can, sacrifice those high-strikeout guys who have lofty WHIPs and acquire someone less exciting like Doug Fister, Tim Hudson, Jason Hammel, etc. The guys that people overlook because of the low Ks. (J.P. Breen)
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Gentlemen, if my team is short on relievers, but probably has enough innings in total - thanks to drafting enough starters, even if two of them are Doug Fister and Derek Holland, would you prioritize drafting relievers in the first supplemental over more starters?
(R.A. Wagman from GTA)
Having elite relievers is great for a contending team at the front of their bullpen, so if you can afford using your picks and there are strong relievers available, we feel good about that strategy. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)What could the tigers get for Rick Porcello in a trade? 1 top 100 prospect and more?
(Jason from Ohio)
Considering they didn't get one for Doug Fister, I doubt it. (Jeff Moore)
2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would you trade Cargo for the duo of Asdrubal Cabrera and Doug Fister?
(Brian from IL)
No. Love both of those players, but you need more for a surefire second rounder, borderline first rounder (Paul Sporer)
2013-04-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)So I've got both Weaver and Halladay. That's a bummer man. With Weaver going on the DL who would you pick up between Fister and B. McCarthy? 10 Team Mixed, 5x5 adding in CG, and QS.
(Eric from Costa Rica)
Hi Eric:

That is a bummer. Of the two I'd pick up Doug Fister. Brandon McCarthy has struggled, and while I generally recommend NL pitchers over AL pitchers, Fister is in a better park and is more likely to get you quality starts than McCarthy. (Mike Gianella)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)I've got Halladay and CJ Wilson as my #3 and #5 starter in a points league. Trying to flip them based on Halladay's health and Wilson's walking ways (possible 2011 was outlier??). Anyone you like I should target in a vacuum? I've got Wainwright, Darvish, Peavy, D.Holland, Pettitte and Porcello as the rest of my staff (league really likes [read: reaches] SPs)
(James from NYC)
Sure, I can name dozens of starters I like better than those two, but it depends on the market. Jon Niese and Doug Fister are two off the top of my head, but I have no idea how their current owner(s) value them. (Cory Schwartz)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I love using BP's Player Forecast Manager as a major tool during a draft. In your opinion give a couple of players that PECOTA is too Bullish on as well as too Bearish.
(rupertoooo from Lorton, VA)
I like Aaron Hill, Maro Estrada, Doug Fister, and Carlos Santana a bit more. Not quite as high on Anthony Rizzo and I'm nervous about Mike Napoli's hips. Like Shakira's, they don't lie except unlike Shakira's, I don't like what they're saying. (Paul Sporer)
2012-08-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Although he missed his start last week, what do you make of Doug Fister's resurgence in the 2H?
(Corey31 from Detroit)
I think it's mostly just been a correction of some bad luck in the first-half. His peripherals were still good in the first half -- they were actually their best during his worst month, June -- and he was just a bit unlucky. I buy into Fister as like a 3.50 ERA type of guy. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)I never miss Arthur Bryant's BBQ when I head to KC to see the Tigers. The bonus is that it's right down the street from the Negro League Baseball Museum. LC's BBQ is good too....Gates' BBQ is solid but a little sweet for my tastes.

How do you see Doug Fister doing in a full season in Detroit?
(lemppi from IA)

Second!

I've done a lot of research on Fister to try and figure out where the spike in his K-rate came from after the trade to Detroit. As best as I can tell, he threw more 4-seam fastballs, curves and changeups than before the trade, and fewer 2-seamers and sliders. He had a slight uptick in velocity, and may or may not have moved over on the rubber a little bit, although I'm trying to get confirmation on that. In any case, he appears to be materially the same pitcher as he was before the trade, but just getting better at his craft. Add that to the greater run support he'll undoubtedly get this year, and I think he's a very solid #3/4 SP in mixed leagues. (Cory Schwartz)
2011-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Based on pure stuff/dominance/command (whatever strikes you), which pitchers are you most looking forward to watching this postseason?
(Lucas Apostoleris from Amherst, MA)
Kenley Jansen is the guy that has piqued my interest most recently, but I'll have all offseason to look at him, I suppose.

Of the pitchers who look playoff-bound, Craig Kimbrel is just amazing. I'm curious about Verlander's BABIP this year. Doug Fister is an interesting story. I've wanted to look at Alexi Ogando's switch to the rotation. Koji Uehara fascinates me, with his splitter and high flyball/popup rate. Josh Collmenter and Ian Kennedy are interesting.

Of course there's no way I'll end up analyzing all or even most of those guys, but those are a few names who grab my attention. (Mike Fast)
2011-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who will be your vote for the AL Manager of the Year? Also, will Mike Napoli be eligible for the ALDS after his kiss to the Angel dugout in the season's last game incites a brawl? :-)
(jhardman from Apex, NC)
Good question. A few weeks ago I'd have said Terry Francona, but his stubborn refusal to move Lackey out of the rotation and stretch Aceves out is one of the main factors in the team's slide.

I think Jim Leyland might be a good choice given that you really have to squint to figure out how Detroit has gotten to the top of the AL Central given all of their injuries and roster mismatches. That's also a credit to Dave Dombrowski, whose acquisitions of Wilson Betemit and Doug Fister have really helped. (Jay Jaffe)
