Eno Sarris Baseball Chat — 5/2/13

8:46
Eno Sarris: 15!
9:01
Eno Sarris: Couldn’t have been older than 10
But to me and my friends
The voice on the other end might as well have been God’s
1995, the Division Series
Edgar’s up to bat
Bottom of the 11th inning
Got the whole town listening
“Swung on and belted,” the words distorted. “Joey Cora rounds third!
Here comes Griffey! The throw to the plate’s not in time!
My, oh my, the Mariners win it!”
Yes. Fireworks, they lit up ceiling in the Kingdome
We had just made history

lyrics of the day. should be easy.

Comment From Guest
dee gordon to transition to 2b?
9:01
Eno Sarris: Might actually help him make the bigs! He is taking grounders there.
9:01
Comment From @WorkTheWire
How much longer until BJ Upton comes around?
9:02
Eno Sarris: in batting average leagues, never, not in that cat at least. But I think he’ll hit homers and steal bases eventually.

9:02
Comment From Tacoby Bellsbury
RYAN RABURN!!!!
9:02
Comment From JT
Choose 1: Raburn, Joyce, or Donaldson?
9:02
Eno Sarris: Joyce. Well, Donaldson if you have a need there, but all things equal, Joyce.
9:02
Comment From Tacoby Bellsbury
Tell me I should not be as excited as I am about Ryan Raburn. (Hint: I am pretty excited)
9:03
Eno Sarris: I’m not as excited. He’s a wrong side platoon player who strikes out too much an has a .457 BABIP.
9:03
Comment From jwise224
Dude, I’m stuck out here in Orlando for business. Anything worth drinking from Florida?
9:03
Eno Sarris: Cigar City!
9:03
Comment From Chris
Send away Longoria and AJ Griff for Freeman and Strasberg? I have Headley, and I’m rolling w/ Chris Carter/Teix at 1st. My two “Aces” are Dickey & JWeav
9:04
Eno Sarris: I actually like this. Freeman is a high floor guy, Strasburg is one of the top three pitchers in ball.
9:04
Comment From MO
Will ben Revere get it going sometime soon??
9:04
Eno Sarris: I think so, but only at a .270 or so clip..
9:04
Comment From Aaron
Yuniesky Betancourt. Why. How.
9:05
Eno Sarris: Big Swings, Nothing Else. That’s his chief name.
9:05
Comment From Tacoby Bellsbury
Desperately need 2B help. Give Lawrie and a closer for Zobrist?
9:05
Eno Sarris: Yes! Bad closer though.
9:05
Comment From Pertinent
Why is it that baseball umpires are allowed to be in your face pricks? I can’t fathom an argument where that is good for the game.
9:05
Eno Sarris: Not much accountability.
9:05
Comment From Pertinent
Are degenerative hips going to be the new PED? Sweet Jesus, Napoli crushed those two balls last night.
9:06
Eno Sarris: Utley’s degenerative knees are doing pretty well too
9:06
Comment From Pertinent
When do you pull the trigger on rostering Grandal?
9:06
Eno Sarris: Now! Soon at least.
9:06
Comment From John
NL only 5×5 auction league… $17 Uggla for $19 Span, he needs a 2B and I could sacrifice some home runs for some stolen bases. Am I close?
9:06
Eno Sarris: I think so. With the batting average, Span’s probably going to be worth more.
9:06
Comment From Paul
I want to trade Seager for a pitcher. Who of the following could i reasonably expect to get for him? Medlen, Cahil, Cain, Lester, Bucholtz.. Thanks Eno
9:07
Eno Sarris: Cahill or Buchholz maybe? Cain and Medlen they might think are still aces, and Seager’s no ace-buyer.
9:07
Comment From Tyler
What do you make of the start Rizzo is having? K’s up a bunch, BB’s up slightly but he is mashing with a low babip. Not sure what to expect going forward?
9:07
Eno Sarris: Yeah but his swinging strikes are same as ever. I actually like him for .270/30+ full season pace.
9:07
Comment From AB
Hey Eno. Who do you like at SS: Rutledge, Asdrubal, Crawford
9:08
Eno Sarris: Rut Rut for upside, Asdrubal for high floor. Not into Crawford.
9:08
Comment From Frank
Fantasy is so boring. I honestly can’t begin to understand how people can spend hours every week on it.
9:08
Eno Sarris: This is weird to me. I honestly can’t begin to understand how someone who enjoys reading about baseball, and thinking about research, and how to correctly value players, and not want to test all that accumulated knowledge.
9:09
Comment From Pertinent
All grandmother’s cooking has a similar musk…… And I love it.
9:09
Comment From person hscer
Yay, no Ghost Eno this time.
9:09
Comment From Eminor3rd
Went to a tasting – six different years of Dark Lord. Wow, it is thick and sweet.
9:09
Eno Sarris: Is it mellow today?
9:09
Comment From Tom
Is there a good reason for Halladay to be on anyone’s roster?
9:09
Eno Sarris: I think he cold be a 75% starter, a decent back-end guy. Still gets grounders and can dominate iffy teams.
9:09
Comment From CJ
Ryu, Cashner, Masterson, Estrada, Quintana, Parker and Anderson. Can you rank for the rest of the year please? Thanks!
9:11
Eno Sarris: Masterson and Quintana are last. Anderson is a clear first for me. That leaves Ryu (just a little bit worried about league adjusting to 89 mph fastball, good change, and meh curve/sliders), Cash, Estrada, Parker in the middle. I’ll take Estrada and Cash, but obviously Ryu is working hard at changing my mind.
9:11
Comment From B
Just traded Weeks and Wilhelmson for Hanley, how did I fare?
9:11
Eno Sarris: Fine!
9:11
Comment From Steve 2
Dunn done? I feel like waiting for those random homers has become unbearable and not worth it.
9:12
Eno Sarris: I’m not into it. The swing changes are past 50% reliable, and I’m not sure he’ll hit .200 going forward.
9:12
Comment From Josh
16 team H2H league with HOLDS and David Hernandez was just dropped. Should I splurge with my #3 waiver priority, dropping Marmol, or do you have reason to believe Hernandez won’t soon reclaim his top-5 holder skills?
9:12
Eno Sarris: I think he’ll reclaim those skills but I doubt it’s worth that wire.
9:13
Comment From Dean
Who do you like more ROS, Alexandro de Aza or Brett Gardner? I want to drop Melky Cabrera because he does nothing for my fantasy team. Thanks Eno.
9:13
Eno Sarris: Gardner should have more speed. Similar batting averages? Gardner I say. And yeah I don’t hate dropping de Aza.
9:13
Comment From Manny
Eno, best stash for later in the year production? Gausman, Pineda, or Wacha?
9:14
Eno Sarris: Gausman suddenly sounds like he’s close. Jair and Freddy Garcia probably won’t hold him back.
9:14
Comment From Jack
The Twins are playing surprisingly well to start the year, currently at 12-12, will they be able to maintain or improve this record this year, or is it a fluke?
9:14
Eno Sarris: I don’t believe in them. Pitching is a real weakness to me.
9:15
Comment From B
Who will have a better pair of outings? Capuano (v ARI & v MIA) or McCarthy (@LAD & v PHI)?
9:15
Eno Sarris: Cappy at home.
9:15
Comment From Tim
Are there any minor league bats I should grab for some 2nd half fantasy goodness? Not the obvious grabs of Myers, Tavaras, or Profar.
9:17
Eno Sarris: Billy Hamilton? too obvious? Nick Castellanos? Jonathan Schoop plays second base and Baltimore could use that. Nick Franklin is probably best. He’s an MI, and Seattle really needs that.
9:17
Comment From Guest
After having critically acclaimed debuts in 2011, Eric Hosmer & Brett Lawrie decided to quell their fandom by mashing more than 50% of their batted balls into the turf for the 2012 season. And to quell the post-hype sleeper crowd, they’re doing it again in 2013… They’ve got us right where they want us, right? Those All-Star caliber breakouts are just around the corner, right? RIGHT?!
9:18
Eno Sarris: GB rate isn’t *quite* stable yet, but yeah, not good. I think it might be okay for their batting averages (or at least in Hosmer’s case), but not for power.
9:18
Comment From SMC
I have one move left this week in a DEEP keeper. Should I pick up Jonny Gomes to mash Happ tonight or pick up a reliever (Doolittle, Crain or McGee) to help my struggling holds and ratios this week?
9:18
Eno Sarris: Reliever might give you two appearances.
9:18
Comment From Tim
Doesnt the marlins trade look a lot better now that the blue jays are struggling? It seems that the worse the blue jays perform, the better of an idea it was to unload everyone
9:19
Eno Sarris: It really was an okay trade, except for the PR aspects.
9:19
Comment From JT
Axford should be owned, right? Isn’t he still a decent P?
9:19
Eno Sarris: Wish he hadn’t just blown up. He was supposedly moving closer to the closer role again. He’s there, in the David Hernandez and Joel Hanrahan class.
9:19
Comment From Christopher
Is there a good reason why all Athletics pitching prospects become decent major league starters, and no Orioles prospects do? It’s starting to become a joke.
9:19
Eno Sarris: Getting your feet set under you in a friendly home park probably has something to do with it.
9:20
Comment From Dave
Ian Kennedy was dropped. Would you drop Cashner or JParker to grab him? 10 team h2h.
9:20
Eno Sarris: I wouldn’t personally, but most of the people here would I bet. And in a ten-teamer, you shouldn’t think too hard about dropping Parker probably.
9:20
Comment From Brian
What is the difference between FIP and xFIP and why does it matter?
9:21
Eno Sarris: xFIP basically gives the pitcher a league average home run rate, while FIP does nothing to the pitcher’s home run rate. I think it can be really useful in shorter samples, relievers for example, because if a pitcher is giving up home runs on 20% of their fly balls, that probably won’t continue to happen. Look at Cains’ xFIP.
9:21
Comment From sea salt
Trust McAllister with 2 starts next week, one being against Det?
9:21
Eno Sarris: I do not trust that man.
9:22
Comment From Taylor
Sell high on Justin Upton? My concern is the HR/FB ratio. If he regresses in that area, how much is his production hurt? He already can’t get RBIs because no one in front of him can get on base. Am I over thinking this?
9:22
Eno Sarris: Yes.
9:22
Comment From Gus
Thoughts on Ozuna other than the obvious (raw power, K’s a lot)? He reminds me of Vlad Guerrero, but makes less contact and is slower but he’s only 22! He certainly plays RF like Vlad did –
9:22
Eno Sarris: Might start fast and then hit a rough patch. Pick up, pump, and deal in redrafts imo.
9:22
Comment From Sveum
16 team H2H w/ 4 keepers: Starlin Castro: keeper? He’s so young, and the position is so thin, but he doesn’t seem to be moving forward…
9:22
Eno Sarris: Everything was set for him to improve this year, so give him a little more time.
9:23
Comment From Eminor3rd
Is the craft beer market a bubble that’s about to burst? I don’t know about everywhere, but there are (literally) more than 30 new breweries that have opened recently or will be opening soon in the Chicago area.
9:24
Eno Sarris: For the brewers themselves, yes, that’s a huge risk. I’ve heard of many breweries opening and fizzling quickly. Craft beer as a market is taking more and more of the overall beer market, so there’s more and more money there, but the barriers to entry are relatively low (~$50k), so there are a lot of fish in that sea.
9:24
Comment From David
Eno! I’ve got an opportunity to acquire Giancarlo from a disillusioned owner. He asked for Carlos Santana. I countered with his choice of Gordon or Craig. He recountered with Choo. I’m considering it. Thoughts? (10xMixed, OBP/SLG)
9:25
Eno Sarris: Keeper? I jump on that. Redraft? Choo or Stanton minus a month… Choo is a great OBP asset, but you’re probably selling high. You know what, in a ten-teamer I take it. Can’t you find a decent two-week OF on the wire? I think so.
9:25
Comment From mr. anonymous
jim henderson is looking safer by the day.. can he keep up his saving ways or is regression bound to show up?
9:25
Eno Sarris: He’s basically John Axford. so the regression might come for him in a year or two.
9:25
Comment From juan pierres mustache
it’s time to party, yes? also the distributor near me is finally selling deschutes again after an inexplicable 3-year hiatus. is there another brewery that produces such consistently excellent beers? i can’t think of any others where every single thing i try is so good–had the summer ale two nights ago and the white IPA last night. delicious
9:26
Eno Sarris: I actually don’t like a ton of their stuff. The Red Chair NWPA is excellent, excellent. I like their seasonal stuff. Really don’t like their flagship stuff other than Obsidian.

Jai Alai IPA from Florida is great
9:26
Eno Sarris: slowly warming interlude
9:27
Comment From GSon
Was at the game last night.. even Raburn’s foul tips are falling in for singles..
9:27
Eno Sarris: right
9:27
Comment From jon
MadBum or Cliff Lee with K/9, IP, QS and no wins as cats?
9:28
Eno Sarris: I’ll take MadBum. Lee’s velo is down, and he’s long overperformed his peripherals in K/9, and he’s older.
9:28
Comment From ACC
Better stashes in order Beachy,Lewis,Luebke???
9:28
Eno Sarris: That order. Maybe Luebke over Lewis.
9:29
Comment From Mark
How worried are you about gio Gonzalez?
9:30
Eno Sarris: His first strike rate is good. He’s getting people to reach, and whiff. Those things predict a better BB% than the one he has, and that BB% is not reliable yet. So yeah, not that worried. I think he can 3.6/1.25 with great K9 going forward.
9:30
Comment From juan pierres mustache
My Oh My – Macklemore. How much are you buying the Red Sox rotation being massively improved this year? Lester looks like he’s back to his previous form, Buchholz remembered how to throw strikes and his off-speed stuff looks great, even Lackey managed a real, major-league-pitcher type start (against houston, but still). Probably won’t be better than TB at the end of the year, but fair to say they have the 2nd-best rotation in their division?
9:31
Eno Sarris: I don’t know that I believe in all the current guys, but with Webster and Rubby and resources to make a trade, I do believe in the Red Sox in general. Even with regression, Buchholz will be good.
9:31
Comment From alkal
got an offer of Zack Wheeler for Rutledge and Viciedo 12 team dynasty league thoughts?
9:32
Eno Sarris: I wouldn’t miss Viciedo one bit. He’s only good against lefties right now. If it’s an OBP league, probably okay to trade Rutledge.
9:32
Comment From GSon
Will Yasiel Puig be given a “pass” on his driving indiscretions and get a call up any time soon?.. He’s taking up a valuable spot on my keeper roster..
9:33
Eno Sarris: Probably waiting on injury. I don’t think I’d call him up to platoon against lefties with Ethier.
9:33
Comment From Maxamuz
Eno! I’m glad your here today. I duda know what I would duda with you.
9:33
Comment From Eminor3rd
When is it time to worry about Kila Ka’aihue?
9:33
Comment From Ryan
Secret to getting your question answered? (I need to know about Cuddyeerrrrrrrrr)
9:33
Eno Sarris: We were warming up there for a second.
9:33
Comment From Too Many Joes
Macklemore is awesome. McLemore was pretty awesome, too. Is Oswaldo Arcia a legit plus average plus power guy or is he gonna be just another average outfielder?
9:34
Eno Sarris: above-average power. below-average patience with better upside. could have above-average defense. sounds kinda average don’t it.
9:34
Comment From juan pierres mustache
So you’re kinda out on Lawrie, judging from that comment on Lawrie+closer for Zobrist? Still a target for keeper leagues or are you selling him if someone else values him as a top-50 guy?
9:35
Eno Sarris: No I like Lawrie. I was assuming redraft. Did I mess up? In keepers, I think long-term he’ll iron out some stuff and I still like him for a peak .280/25/20 season.
9:35
Comment From Smith
How different do you think Beltre and Headley’s stats will be at the end of the year? Thinking about sending a trade to improve other positions (I own Beltre)
9:36
Eno Sarris: Similar but Headley will steal more bases. Doubt Beltre will outslug him by a ton. Might take Headley and an upgrade over Beltre.
9:36
Comment From Topper Harley
Were you ever a believer in Dillon Gee?
9:37
Eno Sarris: he has a real changeup. a history of control. his fastball sucks. and he tries to throw the fastball past hitters at the letters… at 88. As a Mets fans, I want happiness for him. As a fantasy guy.. I don’t own him.
9:37
Comment From Maxamuz
I just traded T. Hunter for Mo Riv. How duda I do?
9:38
Eno Sarris: I like it. Mo has more leash than anyone, and his perips are recovering. Hunter looks like a batting-average only guy.
9:38
Comment From Casey
Kevin Gregg doesn’t keep the closers job when Fujikawa comes back right?
9:38
Eno Sarris: Not in my book.
9:38
Comment From Dave
IN an OBP league, would you want Pedro Alavarez or Arenado?
9:39
Eno Sarris: Arenado. I know that Alvarez is a little better in OBP leagues, but if you strike out that much, even with a 10% walk rate it’s hard to beat a .310 OBP. Arenado will. And could hit 20.
9:39
Comment From Topper Harley
Just picked up Gyorko over Neil Walker? Is this even something worth asking what you think? I feel like it’s asking I just chose a Shell Station over Chevron
9:39
Eno Sarris: No no I like both of them. Gyorko’s plate discipline translated, and Walker is injured.
9:40
Comment From Razor
Going to Stanford for a conference next week: 1) Where should I sit at my first trip to ATT park? 2) Beer bar/brewpub recommendations near campus?
9:41
Eno Sarris: I think you can find some decent seats along the first base line, that’s in the sun if you like that. Standing room only is not as bad as it sounds. Lots of places to sit and drink, then go back out, stroll the park. Super cheap. 2) Rose and Crown in PA is walking distance (University) and despite the smell, has a great beer selection.
9:41
Comment From Razor
You went to school with Cistulli? What was that like?

Comment From Questions (of the Clown Variety)
Edward is last of the Mujicans but first in my speculative save pickups heart
9:42
Eno Sarris: oh put that one in there and give it a yes
9:43
Comment From Razor
Looking to shop Iwakuma/Ryu now to sell high? Or hold on and know they’re going to regress but still will be rotation-worthy all season?
9:44
Eno Sarris: I like Iwakuma. Ryu I’ve been talking about. I don’t get it. Doesn’t impress me when I watch. I guess his arm speed is the same on the change and the fastball, and if you’re going to feature two good pitches, FB and CH are the best. Probably both worthy, but trading Ryu as an ace might be awesome right now.
9:44
Comment From mr. anonymous
zach sanders doesn’t seem to have much faith in garza when he returns. what do you think? solid #3 with #2 upside?
9:45
Eno Sarris: 3.7/1.2 with 8K/9?
9:45
Comment From Guest
What exactly does pitch speed correlate with, does it lower balls in play or increase swinging strike %. Everyone seems to care about pitch speed–I get it–but does it actually correlate with any other stat?
9:45
Eno Sarris: Correlates with swSTR for sure. at the extremes — 93,94+ — it also correlates with lower home run rates.
9:45
Comment From Met head
What do I do with Ike Davis? I thought last year’s slow start was from Valley Fever. What’s the problem this year? Does he just stink? Time to sell?
9:46
Eno Sarris: He’s always going to strike out and hit for a bad batting average. I believe in his power.
9:46
Comment From Milwaukee BeerJays
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENO! BJ SUCKTON. I know you think he will rebound but…Marte is available in my league…do I take that chance?
9:47
Eno Sarris: Interesting! I might actually do that! Marte, even with regression, will hit for better ba. Upton will have more power.
9:47
Comment From Mark
I am loving Travis Hafner in that joke of a stadium against righties… Position be damned!
9:47
Eno Sarris: I’d sit him against lefties, but yeah.
9:47
Comment From Guest
I’m trying to trade Elvis Andrus for a SP — what is a reasonable return? I tried some reach offers for Sale, Scherzer and Cain — all rejected. Then I tried an “I’ll do anything offer” for Samadzja and the guy rejects me. Mixed League, 6×6 daily, I already have Zobrist and Castro with SS eligibility and Seager, Carpenter and Kinsler with MI eligibility. Thanks!!!
9:47
Eno Sarris: Wait.
9:48
Comment From Kid D
how long does it take for Plate discipline stats to normalize?
9:48
Eno Sarris: contact rate and swing rate already stabilized. that suggests to me that O-swing is, as well, but haven’t actually seen the data on that.
9:48

Have you had 4 Peaks Kiltlifter from Tempe, AZ?

Allagash Curieux.. an especially buttery ale.. have you had the timidity to try this wonderfully aged brew?

Hamilton Hamilton Hamilton. Turn it around or destined to be Ryan Howard 2.0
9:49
Eno Sarris: Not looking good to me. Way too many Ks and those are stable now.
9:49
Comment From juan pierres mustache
wait is jair jurrjens currently pitching in the majors? if so this is shocking to me, both because he’s bad and because i have seen nothing about this
9:50
Eno Sarris: No he’s next after Freddy Garcia, pitching in AAA and has an out clause in his contract June 15. Which is also the day that Gausman could come up and not be super-two. …
9:50
Comment From Kenley Rae Jansen
10 team 6×6 w K/BB — how much of my $100 waiver budget should i spend on Marco Estrada? (someone dropped him for Rayburn, hehe) As a frame of reference, someone dropped Homer Bailey in April and he went for $11
9:50
Eno Sarris: 9/10/11 is about right.
9:50
Comment From Nolan
2012 Chase Headley seems alive and well. Do we buy into the breakout now?

Eno Sarris: I always did.
9:50
Comment From GSon
Passan on Prospect Heat says Wacha to the Indians for Asdrubal.. Watcha think about picking him up for the long haul?
9:51
Eno Sarris: that would make Wacha much more interesting. Although the Indians are taking their time with Bauer so it might not make Wacha much better in redrafts.

Harper X-rays… negative! And there was much rejoicing.
9:52
Comment From Too Many Joes
Also: aloohol sales go up in a bad economy, and so the beer market’s likely headed for a downturn as the economy improves.
9:52
Eno Sarris: Guys… what’s going on with the interludes today.
9:52
Comment From John V.
Cuddyer or Melky ROS?
9:52
Eno Sarris: I’m out on Melky. Everything looks like pre-Royals Melky.
9:52
Comment From Nolan
How long before the fantasy world realizes that Andrus and Escobar are the same player?
9:52
Eno Sarris: I think people are realizing. This year, that means that Andrus is underrated.

What should the cardinals do about their bullpen??
9:53
Eno Sarris: Wait.
9:53
Comment From Justin
Bullish on Domonic Brown ROS – or is patience wearing thin?
9:53
Eno Sarris: I think I still like him about the same as I did — .270/.330 with 20/10 type numbers.
9:53
Comment From Luke
Hello, Eno. It’s my birthday. What’s up with Dan Haren? Any hope for improvement?
9:54
Eno Sarris: He’s got decent K-BB numbers, and his velo is up a tick. Yes, there is hope. Happy day!
9:54

Thoughts on these historical recreation beers. I haven’t had one that I liked.

Who would you pick up, Reddick or Chris Carter to play RF while Stanton is on the DL?

9:55

Comment From John Stamos
Decided to try and sell high on Cingrani but came up with Starling Marte in a 1-for-1 offer. Pull the trigger?
9:56
Eno Sarris: I like it. Is Johnny Cueto dead? Will they really sit Leake for a rookie?
9:56
Comment From Eric
Am I crazy to think that Goldschmidt could end up as the #1 1B? I’d take 30 homers and 15 sb over 35 homers and 0 steals from someone like Fielder
9:57
Eno Sarris: He’s traditionally been worse v RHP, which is not good, but this year he’s not swinging against low-and-away pitches from righties, and I like that. Obviously has speed. With that K-rate, I think he has .275 type batting average risk though.
9:57

Thanks to his position and non-hitting contributions, Ian Desmond is nearing Bryce Harper in WAR. (Harper 1.4, Desmond 1.1) – Remember when Ian Desmond was bad?

Eno Sarris: So weird. He was all tools and I wasn’t sure he’d make it.

Lincecum and Carlos Gomez for Bumgarner? Which side would you take?
9:58
Eno Sarris: BumG. Linc looks toast to me.

Comment From Bart
Desperate for SP’s. Who do you prefer, Garland or Chatwood, both on the Rockies? I know the choices are not overwhelming.
9:59
Eno Sarris: ug. Chatwood has GB% upside and velocity, so him I guess. Still young.
9:59
Comment From Too Many Joes
We fantasy baseball types seem to be in constant worry. Should we be seeing doctors about this problem?

Eno Sarris: It’s a condition.

Gyorko or Arenado for a bench spot? Zimmerman on the DL coming back soon I presume…

Are you worried about Shaun Marcum? He hasn’t exactly gotten off to a good start.

Thoughts on Mike Minor as a fantasy pitcher going forward?
10:01
Eno Sarris: I like him. Velo up a bit. was good in the second half last year.
10:01
Comment From john
Lester’s first strike % and SwStrike % are both below average.
10:01
Eno Sarris: Yeah I’m not completely sold the old version is back, but I do think he’ll be better than last year.
10:02
Comment From Wobatus
Eno, I can get Lagunitas Sucks at the Duane Reade on 3rd between 65th and 66th. $12.99 a sixer. Shocked to see it there.
10:02
Eno Sarris: Sweet. Do it now cause it’s seasonal.
10:02
Comment From Mitchell
In Fantasy football, if my kicker scores a TD I get those points. Why don’t I get pitching stats if one of my position players pitches?
10:02
Eno Sarris: I was going to say that football was more of a two-way sport!
10:02
Comment From bleepbloop
Please rank for this season and going forward in dynasty: Niese, Minor, Cashner, Corbin
10:03
Eno Sarris: Minor above all for both. Cash second in dynasty. Niese second this year. Corbin is fine, I like him to be 7k9ish with good GB.

Comment From Dan
I’m in a standard Yahoo league where we get one “NA” spot to hold a minor leaguer until they get called up (it’s not a keeper league though, you can just hold the guy for the year hoping he comes up and contributes). I had Profar and Taveras on my roster, but only one NA spot, so I ended up dropping Profar and picking up Cashner when Brett Anderson hit the DL. I figured he’s be less likely to be a significant fantasy contributor this year – given that he’s not exceptional with the bat quite yet. Did I dun goof up, or was that the right move?
10:04
Eno Sarris: No idea. If he ends up in Florida, he’ll start right away. If he stays in Texas, might have to wait all year.
10:04
Comment From G-House
Redraft league -Lawrie or Moustakis?
10:05
Eno Sarris: Lawrie. Steals split diff. Moose is hitting everythign straight up.
10:05
Comment From bobert
Hiram Burgos he had pretty decent AAA numbers how does he project from here on out?
10:05
Eno Sarris: Kinda kitchen sinky with a fringey fastball. Could be okay at first, but wouldn’t bet on him long term.
10:05
Comment From Bart
Should I drop Crisp (no DL spot) and pick up either V Wells, Hafner, Murphy, Betancourt or Donaldson or just let him ride the bench until he is healthy?
10:05
Eno Sarris: bench
10:05
Comment From Justin
Does Kirk Gibson keep Parra in his starting lineup when Eaton comes back? Citing Gerardo’s “grit”, “intangibles”, and “playing the game the right way”?
10:06
Eno Sarris: Very interesting. Kubel will get platooned, and Ross could even sit against some tough righties, so there’s room for four OFs and good PT still.
10:06

The Yanks picked up Chris Nelson off waivers. Do you think he’ll turn it around like some of the other players the Yanks picked up to fill injury voids?
10:07
Eno Sarris: They going to use him against lefties only, I bet.
10:07

Any chance Archie Bradley sees the majors this year?
10:07

JOrdan Zimmerman…… top15 guy rest of the way?… he dominated the braves last night.
10:08
Eno Sarris: The strikeouts were nice to see.
10:08
Comment From YoKnows
what is going on with Matt Cain
10:08
Eno Sarris: Just too many HRs. He might not regress back to his 7-8% HR/FB, but I think he can go back to 10% (league average) and halve his current 2+ HR/9.
10:08
Comment From Milby
Also, wwas at La Trappe in SF last night – that place is heaven if you’ve got a taste for Belgians.

Comment From Clifford
Carlos Santana or Cespedes in a deep dynasty? Have Cargo in LF and Mauer at C…Cespedes is in my DH slot

Ryan Raburn is 2B eligible and Im in a 16 team league, worth an add since all I have is Tejada playing there?
10:11
Eno Sarris: Well you need him, but you also need Tejada to form the platoon.
10:11
Comment From Grey Ghost
Wilin Rosario: elite catcher? The BA is due to regress, and he may not keep up 40HR pace, but even at .270 and 30+ HR he has to be close to Posey and Santana, no?
10:11
Eno Sarris: Yeah I think we had him fourth or fifth?
10:11
Comment From Tvators
When does Nick Franklin get the call for the M’s? Dont they just need to do something? Will they move Franklin back to SS or send a message to Ack by demoting him, even though he is “up to”.245/.283/.277

Can Nick Franklin provide any mixed league value this year?

What’s up with Lucroy?
10:14
Eno Sarris: I ran catcher BABIP once and got .285. Can’t depend on a catcher for a good batting average unless he’s in his prime Victor. I think he can .270 or so going forward.
10:14
Comment From Jimmy
What’s up with Salvador Perez? Do I trade Napoli for him in a dynasty league?
10:15
Eno Sarris: See above. slightly better BA. less power. you can make the trade but only because Napoli won’t catch foreer.
10:15
Comment From Bryce Harper

Wait you don’t like Black Butte porter? I’ve only heard good things about it and I’m finally going to get the chance to try it this summer.

10:17
Comment From Jiminy
Is Matt Harvey really this good? Would you trade Matt Cain to get him?
10:18
Eno Sarris: Sure. Harvey’s strikeouts are for real and he can handle regression and still be a better K asset.
10:18
Eno Sarris: But I might ask for a sweetener because he’s so young and all
10:18
Comment From Kenley Rae Jansen

10:19
Comment From Bart
Who can I get for Hamilton right now, Duda, Reddick, Moss or can I do better?

10:19
Comment From Larry
Do any players actually sir down and watch another baseball game, on TV, just for fun? only during playoffs, maybe?

Comment From Bert
Kemp for Rizzo and Jose Fernandez? Keeper.

Eno Sarris: Ooh if I was a kemp owner you should offer me that because I’d be super tempted if I didn’t have a good 1b and needed pitching. Kemp’s shoulder worries me and I think he’s going to steal less and less.

    Hey Eno–should I be worried about my pitching staff? Cliff Lee, Dickey, Morrow, Zimmermann, Greinke, Cashner? Seemed pretty good coming into the year! I have a 2 in ERA and a 4 in WHIP…

    Losing patience with Kemp. Should I remain patient or sell now as this the highest point of return?
