Eno Sarris: 15 minutes!
9:00
Eno Sarris: lyrics of the day are FRESH (at least for this old man)

Out of control but you’re playing a role Do you think you can go til the 18th hole Or will you flip-flop the day of the championship? Try to go it alone on your own for a bit

Comment From person hscer
Am I in the right place? This is where we talk about baseball and other things, right?
9:00
Eno Sarris: Sure. Or whatever.
9:01
Comment From Steve
What does a full season of Prime Anthony Rizzo look like?
9:01
Eno Sarris: I’d hate to get all gushy about him, but I think he could have more than one .290+/40+ season on his ledger.

9:01
Comment From Matt Adams
I destreoy the minors and have a huge start to the season yet I still don’t get much love. What’s my ceiling??
9:02
Eno Sarris: Maybe .280-.290 with 20-25 HRs? Maybe a little more power than Craig? Problem is, you’re a first baseman and a first baseman alone.
9:02
Comment From Eric
My “stacked” rotation of Strasburg/Gio/Greinke/Morrow/Samardzija currently has one pitcher inside the top 50 on ESPN’s player rater. Any ideas on how to fix this disappointing bunch? Or do I just need more patience?
9:02
Eno Sarris: You should be fine. I don’t really believe in Morrow, but I like the rest. perhaps you could package Morrow with something else for an upgrade.
9:02
Comment From AJT
Any cause for concern with Jay Bruce?
9:03
Eno Sarris: I believe in him. Tons of line drives, he’s just swinging too much. I think .250 with 25-30 hrs is still in the cards, and that’s about all you could expect anyway.
9:03
Comment From Django
I have Neil Walker on the DL so I dropped Andrew Bailey to pick up Yuni (it hurt my soul to do it). Should I make the opposite move when Bailey is about to come back and just rely on Walker to come back healthy?
9:03
Eno Sarris: Yes I think so. Walker will be back soon and who wants Yuni anyway.
9:03
Comment From Milhouse
Duda or Jay Bruce ROS in OBP league?
9:03
Eno Sarris: Still Bruce.
9:03
Comment From Steve
It’s dump trade week in my league, I need AL steals, would you give up 3 years of Capps or Rondon for Dyson? Same settings as tout with inflation, Capps 4, Rondon 7, Dyson 17.
9:03
Eno Sarris: Sure. They are relievers and they’re already getting expensive.
9:03
Comment From LudeBurger
Jose Fernandez is awesome right?
9:04
Eno Sarris: Dude. I think so. But I just got a trade offer rejected where someone said “I see no difference between Jose Fernandez and Edinson Volquez.” BLEW MY MOTHER F’IN MIND.
9:04
Comment From Unchained
Drop Avila for Doumit in roto?
9:04
Eno Sarris: eh. Doumit’s losing that precious playing time to the young guys. I wouldn’t.
9:05
Comment From Goat
Hey Eno! Sure I’m not the only one to say that the new section of site rules, unfortunately it may mean I’m out of a job by June… On the day Brett Anderson comes off the DL, would you rather have him, or Milone for the RoS?
9:05
Eno Sarris: Anderson. Just believe in his stuff more. Milone’s fastball is down to 87!
9:05
Comment From Tacoby Bellsbury
I am presently trying to sell David Price for 90 cents on the dollar. Is that what I should be doing? Who are some worthwhile, high-K SP targets? Or am I panicking prematurely?
9:05
Eno Sarris: I’d hold on to price in redraft leagues. Even in keepers, I’d want a nice run out of him before I trade him.
9:05
Comment From Rubby of the Rose
First time my boss has been in my office during your chat, Eno. Sadly, this means I’ll miss most of it when he takes us out to lunch and gets us drunk off of wine. :(
9:06
Eno Sarris: It was fun while we had you.
9:06
Comment From Bud Selig
What would be my best course of action, if any re: the Angel Hernandez blown call?
9:06
Eno Sarris: Talk to Rubby.
9:06
Comment From Gila Monster
Where do you put Matt Harvey’s value RoS? Top 10 SP? Top 15? In a QS league?
9:06
Eno Sarris: Definitely in the top 15, and higher in QS since the Mets do all they can to blow his wins. I think top ten. Hard to put him ahead of Felix htough.
9:06
Comment From Unchained
Kindly rank these OF: S. Marte, Jennings, Gardner
9:07
Eno Sarris: You got it. Looks like Marte will manage a higher BABIP than Jennings.
9:07
Comment From Simon
Freese or Middlebrooks?
9:07
Eno Sarris: I’ll take Freese. Middlebrooks’ 30% strikeout rate just scares the crap out of me.
9:07
Eno Sarris: LITERALLY.
9:07
Comment From Trey
What are you planning to ask of Braves players today?
9:08
Eno Sarris: Need to do more research. But! I have one question planned at least. I’ll ask Andrelton Simmons how he got so *shudders* with the glove.
9:08
Eno Sarris: I mean, we don’t have to take interludes, if we just want to plow right on through.
9:08
Comment From Guest
Kyle Kendrick gonna remain this usable all season?
9:08
Eno Sarris: No.
9:08
Comment From Tacoby Bellsbury
Drop Angel Hernandez?
9:08
Eno Sarris: On his noggin.
9:08
Comment From Maxamuz
Diane Young. What do I win?
9:08
Eno Sarris: Your question answered.
9:09
Comment From Travis
Andrelton Simmons = Ozzie Smith with a better bat.
9:09
Eno Sarris: He’s amazeballs I think is the term.
9:09

Comment From JEB
BEEEEEEEEEER! Got two bottles of Founders Doom last week. Delicious to say the least.
9:09
Comment From jwise224
Oh man, Eno, oh man…
9:09
Eno Sarris: interluded
9:09
Comment From jon
Eno – Is Freeman too much to give for Kimbrel? OPS counts, as does K/9 and IP. Would replace Freeman with Swisher
9:10
Eno Sarris: Actually I think Freeman doesn’t have much upside. He’s meh. Kimbrel is tops at his position and would goose your K/9.
9:10
Comment From person hscer
And speaking of The Game pitchers: I believe in you RA Dickey (at TB for $5)! I believe in you!
9:10
Eno Sarris: Can’t wait for the Jays to come to SF/OAK.
9:10
Comment From Unchained
Top of the morning to you. Dan Espinosa droppable for Dee Gordon in OPS league?
9:11
Eno Sarris: Feel like Espinosa’s RoS OPS upside isn’t much better than 700 at this point. If Dee can walk 10%, then he might be able to manage .350/.350 and get there too, with way more steals. or he loses his every day job quickly. Point is, a .700 OPS can’t be that special if Dee Gordon can get there.
9:11
Comment From wes
Is Glen Perkins a good enough RP to receive straight up for Cobb? K/9 counts
9:12
Eno Sarris: Trading for relievers is tough and I normally say just don’t bother. So this is about what the market does if not what market value should be.
9:12
Comment From tiburon
In a 10-team mixed keeper league ($300 budget, 30 roster slots), would it represent fair value to trade Tim Lincecum at $8 for B.J. Upton at $10?
9:12
Eno Sarris: Sure. I don’t hold out much hope for Timmeh any more.
9:12
Comment From John
Marte and Buxton for Gio Gonzalez, dynasty league…. your thoughts, go!
9:13
Eno Sarris: I don’t actually love Buxton types myself. All tools, lots of questions, decent bust rate imo. Marte is already here though, and he’s a position player… maybe try to get a flier SP prospect thrown in.
9:13
Comment From Fitz
Have Jason Grilli, and obviously very satisfied with his performance thus far. Should I sell high on him? High lob%, low babip despite a high ld% and hasn’t given up a HR yet. Thanks.
9:13
Eno Sarris: No I like him. Kept his old man velocity gains somehow.
9:13
Comment From 3B Wasteland
Lawrie or Moustakas? 6×6, OPS and AVG
9:13
Eno Sarris: Moose doesn’t walk much and Lawrie steals. I’ll take Lawrie.
9:13
Comment From palo alto
In a 10-team mixed keeper league ($300 budget, 30 roster slots), would it represent fair value to trade Hisashi Iwakuma at $1 for Josh Hamilton at $28?
9:14
Eno Sarris: That’s selling pretty low. $28 in that kind of league is — what — $25 or less in a $260. (MATHS) Even with a bad BA, Hamilton might recoup that value. Then again, I believe in Iwakuma to produce extra value on top of that $1… So it’s not bad.
9:15
Comment From Pop
Coghlan’s Law- Beer is for breakfast…drink or be gone.
9:15
Comment From Maxamuz
Duddda doobie doooo
9:15
Comment From scb
What are your favorite 2-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes?
9:15
Eno Sarris: Munch on THAT.
9:15
Comment From Jon
Thoughts on Arcia? Is he a potential keeper in the OF?
9:16
Eno Sarris: A little worried about his plate discipline. Might only be a .260/.320 true talent guy with okay power.
9:16
Comment From person hscer
As a Nats fan I don’t know what was more depressing: the Espinosa-Gordon question, or your answer.
9:16
Eno Sarris: Sorry brociferous.
9:16
Comment From Pop
Freeman, no upside? You just spoiled my lunch.
9:16
Eno Sarris: I don’t see much more pop in there. I think he’ll keep doing this… which is great while he’s cheap.
9:16
Comment From David
Afternoon Eno! So there’s no reason to carry Miguel Montero as a backup catcher in a 10xMixed is there?
9:16
Eno Sarris: Who’s your starter.
9:16
Comment From Hiya

My new liquor store: Can you get me a discount?

9:17
Eno Sarris: Presented without comment.
9:17
Eno Sarris: Oh I can’t resist. A wine lover is an ENOphile.
9:17
Comment From Mark
Over/under .5 flushes when you wrote LITERALLY?
9:17
Eno Sarris: over.
9:17
Comment From scb
I am a Cubs fan who recently moved to Minneapolis. Target Field is very enjoyable. My question: who will make a World Series first, Cubs, Twins, or obviously neither?
9:17
Eno Sarris: Actually like what the Cubs are doing. Theo can run a team.
9:17
Comment From Rubby of the Rose
Kolten Wong is never coming up, is he?
9:18
Eno Sarris: The Cards just wait forever on prospects. I think it’s partly to use their peak seasons and then let them go, and partly because they are usually a good team.
9:18
Comment From Trout River
Would you trade Pujols and Samardija for Tulo and Haren? Would leave me with LaRoche at 1B.
9:19
Eno Sarris: I actually think I might not. There are already a few missed games in Tulo’s year, and though he might be the best player in the deal when healthy, the jump from Haren to the shark is hefty.
9:19
Eno Sarris: Breaking news. Someone new that Angel Hernandez was a bad ump… in the minor leagues… in 1991… http://t.co/pSKPDt3ryv
9:19
Comment From JEB
Thinking about shipping out Gyorko for a 5th round pick and grabbing Didi off of waivers, good idea bad idea?
9:20
Eno Sarris: Is okay. Second sucks, but shortstop is usually the worst position. I like Gyorko’s bat a little more, but Didi has better home park.
9:20
Comment From Guest
Completely foolish to consider trading Harvey in a keeper? I assume I ask for a top-top hitter?
9:21
Eno Sarris: If you’re stacked in the rotation and need hitting, wouldn’t be crazy. But I couldn’t do it myself. too much of a homer.
9:21
Comment From Alex
What can we expect from Machado as he reaches his prime? A-Rod light? He’s looked really impressive.
9:21
Eno Sarris: Weird thing was that he had all those low BABIPs in the minors. That’s why he was only projected for a .260 or so batting average. But he doesn’t do anything that would make him have a bad BABIP. Looks good to me.
9:21
Comment From Casey
How ashamed should I be for being back on the Liriano train?
9:22
Eno Sarris: I have him… in my 18-teamer.
9:22
Comment From Ira
What are your thoughts on the large format beers like Brooklyn #1 that are all the rave right now? Too expensive? Impractical? I personally think they’re stupid because you have to finish them in one sitting unlike wine.
9:23
Eno Sarris: You mean like the 750s? the bombers? Here’s why I like them: I don’t want to buy a sixer of a beer I’m unsure about. If I do, and it sucks, what the crap do I do with the other five? With a bomber, I just suck it up and finish the one.
9:23
Comment From CJ
ENO!!! Favorite chatter in all of sports, except I don’t drink beer :/. Anyways, was offered CC/Price for Adam Jones/Peavy. Would leave my OF with Trout/Cargo/Bruce and Howard as full time utility. 12 team non keeper h2h. Take it??
9:24
Eno Sarris: Glad to have all kinds. If Peavy stays in one piece I think you lose that trade… Well. Just because AJ will probably outstrip the two pitchers you get. But maybe not by much. You know what? If you need pitching, I think your outfield can take it. Maybe you can drop your worst pitcher for a platoon mate for Howard. (You’ll need one)
9:24
Eno Sarris: A K-BOMB for KIPNIS
9:24
Eno Sarris: (I still like Kipnis, think the elbow is healed now)
9:25
Comment From Doctor Met
This craft bar is across the street from my apt and it has a live updating beer menu.. any suggestions? When left hand milk was there I was there until they killed their stash. http://ues.theponybar.com/
9:25
Eno Sarris: Love Love Pony Bar. They have one in the UES now huh. Don’t have time now, but hit me up on twitter. The BeerGraphs account is all about recommendations. Especially for travelers.
9:25
Comment From dude
Due to roster implications, I dropped mcClouth. He was picked up, and now I feel as if I should be in regret mode. Should I be?
9:26
Eno Sarris: I think he can provide 2/3s of .280/15/20 production.
9:26
Comment From Guest
What are the chances that Bell wins and keeps teh closer roll in ARI?
9:27
Eno Sarris: I don’t like it. I mean, he got some velo back, and his strikeout rate has been good, but I’ve liked Hernandez for so long, and we don’t yet know about how long Putz will be out…
9:27
Comment From Guest
Zach McAllister looking good…. does it last?
9:27
Eno Sarris: I don’t believe.
9:27
Comment From JEB
Think Tazawa is a reasonable third closer in a 3RP league? I have Perez but I’m trying to unload him before those homers start staying fair…
9:28
Eno Sarris: If he keeps the job, he’s reasonable. But you know what, I’m always looking for a third closer, so I’d do that trade if possible.
9:28
Comment From Joe
Dynasty Keeper league. Was offered C. Archer and M. Barnes for Wil Myers. I’m rebuilding. Good deal?
9:28
Eno Sarris: NO, you build around hitting.
9:28
Comment From Pop
Lagunitas Censored was called Kronic, based on the smell during brewing. Label was denied, as a joke they sent it back with a black censored label. It was accepted.
9:28
Eno Sarris: Nice.
9:29
Comment From RJ
is Yonder’s power for real? 2 HR off LHP already makes me feel fuzzy inside…
9:29
Eno Sarris: Oppo power is fairly anti-platoon, so I’m getting happy about him too. Still don’t think he has top-five upside or anything, but top-twelve for sure now.
9:29
Comment From dude
What percentage of FAAB are you using on Bell? I have Hernandez, and therefore, can basically lock up Arizona saves. I guess some of this depends when putz comes back, but I would like your thoughts on the matter.
9:30
Eno Sarris: In your case I think you can push it over 10%.
9:30
Comment From Jon
The new projected standings Fangraphs unveiled today are great! http://www.fangraphs.com/depthcharts.aspx?position=Standings NL is good this year. According to those projections, A’s get second WC in AL with 83 wins while Pirates/Dbacks miss out in NL with 84.
9:30
Comment From CJ

My desk friend. Sorry, sent the pic of Tim with a duplicate question earlier, so I'll ask another. Salvador or VMart rest of year? Losing patience with Perez.

9:31
Eno Sarris: sorta can’t concentrate on your question. Sal or VMart? Similar actually, but I don’t like Perez’ new K%. I’ll take Vmart.
9:31
Comment From John Stamos
Thank you for teaching me how to do the 2-for-1 trade! Traded Torii Hunter and Ryu for James Shields. I also learned how deep OF can be in a 3 OF league.
9:31
Eno Sarris: TEACH ME HOW TO TWOFORONE
9:31
Comment From Maxamuz
Eno, Eno, Eno. Do you collect Beer Taps? If so, I may be able to hook you up. On another note, I have Rollins and Asdrubal and was offered Melky for my Asdrubal. Do I make this move?
9:32
Eno Sarris: I don’t collect much of anything any more. Domiciles get crowded, man. would love some extra wide high-quality pics of taps though, for BeerGraphs. I don’t like Melky. I don’t mind trading an SS, but not for Melky.
9:32
Comment From Ira
Yeah but the 750s go for the same price as a lot of good sixers.
9:33
Eno Sarris: hey if the sixer is good and I know it, sure. Just bought a Red Chair sixer for $7.99 and patted myself on the back.
9:33
Comment From dude
Dear Eno, you are the best chatter in all of sports/fantasy, but you are ridiculously slow. Love, Everyone.
9:33
Eno Sarris: Really? Have gotten the opposite comment. If you mean that I don’t get to your questions quickly… boy you should see my queue.
9:33
Comment From Tacoby Bellsbury
Hector Santiago … buy or sell in deep leagues?
9:34
Eno Sarris: I like him. Dunno if I’d buy, but I’d hold for sure. Lots of pitches, some velocity. HES GOT A SCREWBALL. Okay, buy.
9:34
Comment From BS
Rather have Bell, Gregg, or Tazawa for saves?
9:34
Eno Sarris: Bell I guess. I think Fuji will take Gregg’s job, and Bailey will close when he’s back.
9:34
Comment From Jon
If David Hernandez doesn’t see some save opps soon with Putz out, is he still worth rostering?
9:34
Eno Sarris: No
9:34
Comment From Aaron
Any advice for constructing a lineup on Daily Fantasy sites like Draft Kings?
9:35
Eno Sarris: Find a cheap pitcher in a good situation first. Then do the rest of the lineup.
9:35
Eno Sarris: Also: we should be launching a daily fantasy column here shortly.
9:35
Comment From Matt Adams
But won’t I be the Cardinals DH when the NL finally uses the DH? Could happen very soon, no?
9:35
Eno Sarris: Sure. Could give him a few PAs.
9:35
Comment From First Time Poster
Buck or Ellis as my C2 until Grandal returns. M. Montero will right the ship soon, right?
9:36
Eno Sarris: Ellis in OBP, Buck in BA. I still like Montero.
9:36
Comment From Jon
What to do about Zimmerman and Lawrie? They (along with BJ Upton) are killing my average. I thought I was set at 3B/CI but it’s been a black hole.
9:36
Eno Sarris: Lawrie might hurt your BA all year.
9:36
Comment From Hiya
Just looked up career BABIPs. Tom McCreery (of the Superbas) with a .390, Ty Cobb .378. That is silly.
9:36
Eno Sarris: BABIP was different in their time.
9:36
Comment From First Time Poster
Tommy Milone has a 43/6 K/BB ratio in 46 innings… should I be in love with him in a dynasty or is he still a back end guy?
9:36
Eno Sarris: Still think he’s a back end guy. 87 mph fastballs turn into homers. He’ll be a half-time pitcher for too much of his career.
9:37
Comment From Johnny Rockets
Is it time to just move on from Ernesto, with long term value in mind?
9:37
Eno Sarris: Frieri? Still too many strikeouts to move on.
9:37
Comment From Tacoby Bellsbury
There’s gold in them there hills!!!!!
9:37
Comment From BS
Ozzie with the flips on the baseball field. What other occupation would benefit from flips at the workplace?
9:37
Comment From JT
Given your Halladay article, I’m scrolling up to see depressing lyrics of the day, right?
9:37
Eno Sarris: “Diane Young” interlude
9:37
Comment From Kyle
what do you expect from Josh Donaldson for the rest of the season
9:38
Eno Sarris: .260-.280 with 20+ hr power?
9:38
Comment From Vince
Is Starling Marte a hold, or would you trade him for a top 15 SP at this point?
9:39
Eno Sarris: The BABIP will return to earth. I think he’s a true talent .280 15/30 guy. That’s probably worth a bit less than a top 15 SP. (I tried to sell Marte and didn’t get even close to that in an offer — Dempster and Melky was the best I got)
9:39
Comment From Swinger
Have you seen the new Victory Saison Swinger? Had it the past couple days, its refreashing. Can’t wait to drink it in the sun. If summer ever comes to NYC…
9:39
Eno Sarris: PRO TIP: Saisons for the summer. Both start with S!
9:39
Comment From Eric
Hey Eno. Love the chat. Thoughts on getting props from the Fantasy Focus yesterday?
9:40
Eno Sarris: It was thorough and impressive. Very kind of them.
9:40
Comment From scb
Pretty sure it’s oenophile.
9:40
Eno Sarris: Eh, I choose to ignore the o.
9:40
Comment From BS
I keep Ike Davis in my starting line-up for laughs.
9:40
Comment From Mark
Interleague play is killing my Travis Hafner buzz. He should be hitting balls to Boulder but he can’t even play 1B.
9:40
Comment From dude
Eno, you can’t avoid it forever. You are going to have to address the situations with putz and hanrahan. I recommend doing so right after you post this.
9:40
Eno Sarris: Interesting.
9:40
Comment From Swinger
When should I stop being patient with Billy Butler?
9:41
Eno Sarris: Hey. at least another month.
9:41
Comment From Tony L
Will Shelby Miller be shutdown early? Sell high now?
9:42
Eno Sarris: Jose Fernandez will be shut down early. Shelby I think can manage 170-175, and might be so excellent it’s just worth holding on to him and enjoying him.
9:42
Comment From JT
How did I do in my single-week of rebuilding in our dynasty? (Out, Halladay, A-Rod, McCann, Konerko In, Sale, Zimmermann, Cobb, Chris Carter)
9:42
Eno Sarris: You did well. Dangit, this is in our league isn’t it.
9:42
Comment From Doug
In a Dynasty league would you be willing to give up Taveras and Ryu for E. Encarncion?
9:42
Eno Sarris: Ooh that seems hefty for a first baseman.
9:42
Comment From Metsox
What chance does Erasmo Ramirez have of being fantasy relevant in a deep qs league this year?
9:42
Eno Sarris: I’m still holding out some hope. He has to be next in line.
9:43
Comment From Harjit
but question, what is Mike Napoli’s real worth in a 10 team h2h? I’ve got Mauer and him (C, 2IF, 1B) and Fielder AND Berkman and on and on, so I figured trying to move one of the C is a good idea.
9:43
Eno Sarris: You gotta move Napoli now. I think he’s more of a risk than Mauer even. What’s his value? Right now, he’s a top four catcher with those home runs and the extra PAs at 1B. should be nice.
9:43
Comment From JoeyBelle
Why do you have so much gas during the FG meetings? Do your burnps get recorded into the minutes?
9:44
Eno Sarris: WAIT HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS
9:44
Eno Sarris: we’ve got a spy
9:44
Comment From Dallas
Sell high on Beltran? Been a pleasant surprise but I’m worried about health and missing my window.
9:44
Eno Sarris: Yeah, especially in keepers, those knees aren’t going to hold up forever.
9:44
Comment From juan pierres mustache
jeff sullivan is spilling your secrets
9:44
Eno Sarris: shoulda known it was sullivan all along
9:45
Comment From JT
Dave Cameron answered a question about your gas this week, too.
9:45
Eno Sarris: listen. I have gastro-intestinal issues. I’ve learned to put the mute on.
9:45
Comment From Seven
Segura or Simmons?
9:45
Eno Sarris: IRL, Simmons. In fantasy, I think Segura’s SB speed will trump Simmons’ ‘decent’ power.
9:45
Comment From Guest
Would you trade Bruce for Tavares in a forever dynasty where ks
9:46
Eno Sarris: where ks matter? If you aren’t in it this year, yes.
9:46
Comment From Hiya
Robbie Erlin had a half a cup of coffee out of the bullpen, when he comes up next time, is he a starter?
9:46
Eno Sarris: I hope so. I like him.
9:46
Comment From Guest
what’s up with niese? im tempted to drop him for kyle kendrick..
9:48
Eno Sarris: First, I don’t think any of his stuff is superlative. his curve is okay, his cutter is fine, his fastball goes 90. He’s never had an above-average swinging strike rate. But right now he’s not getting strike one, and that’s killing his walk rate. i think he’s a true talent 3.9-4.1 type pitcher, with below-average K%, good BB%, and strong GB%.
9:48
Comment From Jack
Oh, by the way, Choo is hitting .398/.514/.739 vs RHP and .167/.327/.214 vs LHP. It’s early, SSS, etc… but wow.
9:48
Eno Sarris: And his defense is turrrrrrrible.
9:48
Comment From Ramon
Dynasty: Harvey or Darvish?
9:48
Eno Sarris: I’ll take Harvey’s extra years. And Darvish throws a ton of sliders.
9:49
Comment From Concerned Fan
ENO!! Today is my last day at this job. My next one won’t allow me to follow your chats every Thursday!!! What should I do?
9:49
Eno Sarris: Get a better smart phone and check in with us at lunch.
9:49
Comment From dude
So rumor has it you burp a lot and Dave said you have some sort of stomach issue. Is beer your medication?
9:50
Eno Sarris: My friend who’s into health trends — the tai-chi / schiatzu rapper dj that made the intro song for the sleeper and the bust — says that ‘fermented foods’ are a must in a diet. So… SURE!
9:50
Comment From brain games
You’ve been a Hosmer fan right? Are you excited that he bats 4th? Probably not
9:51
Eno Sarris: I think Hoz can manage a decent batting average, with 20ish homers and a few stolen bases. As long as he doesn’t hit eighth, I don’t see that changing a ton. Might steal more in 4th than 2nd or 3rd.
9:51
Comment From DDSP
When will the marlins trade Justin Ruggiano and will anyone want him?
9:51
Eno Sarris: Sure, but it might not be good for his fantasy value.
9:51
Comment From Matt
Who do you like most in a dynasty league: B. Anderson, J. Parker, or D. Straily?
9:52
Eno Sarris: Oh man great question. Anderson is often injured, Parker has shown flashes of being the best, love that changeup, and Straily has the worst fastball. I guess I’d take a shot on Anderson actually. Have talked to a few scouts that don’t love Straily.

Comment From Django
Eno, what’s with your love for the Red Chair? I’ve had it, thought it was okay but not like you do. Describe your feelings to me!
9:53
Eno Sarris: Eh. I think one thing I like about it is this ah-hah moment: I hate some of Deschute’s other beers, and Red Chair has something in common with them, but has a better mix of sweet and that taste, and so therefore I’m like – hey it CAN work!
9:53
Comment From Shelby Miller
Do I need to expidite the development of my changeup or will I be able to make it through the season with just my FB and curve?

Thoughts on Kenley’s chances of eventually overtaking League? If I’m planning for the playoffs, would you suggest picking him up over some lame duck closers (Frieri, maybe Henderson, Gregg). Thanks.
9:54
Eno Sarris: I still like them. I’d take him over Gregg. Not sure about the other two. Number one rule of prospecting for saves is : who’s closing now.

Follow-up for constructing a daily lineup: 1) Yes, start with affordable pitching. 2) Find affordable platoon bats with good match-ups. 3) Fill out the rest of your roster
9:56
Eno Sarris: yes like 2). Basically: scan for cheap players first. You’ll find some good ones in Colorado, or a lefty going against a bad righty, or a pitcher in Petco or whatever, and then you can spend money on the rest of your positions.

Has Derek Holland turned a corner? DO you like him more than Milone?

How can a pitcher work on improving their control? Is it actually possible?

Daily waiver league. If I spent 66% of my FAAB already, should I be concerned with that? You can pick up players for no FAAB dollars if no one else bids however.

As chief FG fantasy guy, you’re going to push for depth charts to be added in a more exportable way, right? These are awesome, but no way I’m transcribing expected playing time one time at a time

Grantland article on Kershaw today–did you read it? Pretty phenomenal account of how he added pitches and worked on other aspects of his game, along with one part about how he tried a slider and it was immediately MLB-ready without any practice, which seems unfair.

Eno Sarris: Jonah’s piece was so so great. so is Kershaw.
10:15
Comment From Mark
Mark Reynods, he of the perpetual .225 BA, is hitting .280. Is he anywhere near this good or do I follow the gamblers fallacy and assume he doesn’t get another hit all year?

Comment From ODawg
Cameron said Tazawa may not be a great fit at closer because he’s an extreme FB guy. The stats don’t really back that up – a lot of noise from 2009 when he was an overmatched SP. My point is, I think Tazawa can close, and Bailey and Hanrahan are injury prone, so Tazawa is worth owning. Thoughts?
10:20
Eno Sarris: I love Tazawa and have not seen a link between FBs, HRs and the closing role. Jack Moore’s piece on velo and K% is the only one I’ve seen that shows a skill that’s predictive with closer changes. Everything else is just ‘role’ based.
10:20
Comment From Dan
Is Drew Smyly rosterable in a 10 team mixed league (with big rosters and not many appealing SP on the wire)? He picks up random wins and saves from pitching multiple innings, plus some nice bonus K’s?
10:21
Eno Sarris: eh. If your rosters are huge and you can stick him at SP and get a few wins and saves and good ratios, maybe. But I bet there’s a better actual SP sleeeper on your wire.

A reason to change your mind on Milone, Eno. He doesn’t walk a lot of guys. And even if he gives up homers, he doesn’t walk many guys at all. He has been dealing with low velo his entire career. He can adjust a lot better than the hard throwers who lose velo.

Eno Sarris: It’s true, but check out the community blog post on velocity. Essentially it says that 89-93 mph is about the same for the fastball… and then there’s a huge spike around 87. So basically if your fastball is mid-80s and your change is 80ish … not enough difference. I get what you’re saying, and when he’s in Oakland, he’ll have that good PU%, the good EDGE% and be better than he ‘should’ be.

How does beer affect your stomach? As a noob beer drinker I find its not always so easy for my body to handle, especially stronger beers like Golden Monkey

Eno Sarris: It does a bit. I burp, fart some.

Eno Sarris: But my problems are overstated. I have some reflux. Just have to watch what I eat. No raw garlic or onions, red sauce and cheese late are bad too.
