Comment From Aaron Harang
The only difference between 2014 me and career me is my sub-5% HR/FB rate. Will I continue to be good, or will I go back to career me?
12:00
Eno Sarris: Career you.

12:00
Comment From Marty
I have your podcast on…it’s weird to hear your voice while I also type to you…

LET’S GET READY TO RUUUUUUUUUUUMBLE
12:01
Comment From AL Pitching Coach
DL-stint aside, Is it time to cut bait on Tyler Skaggs?
12:01
Eno Sarris: Only in ten teamers. Ah! Chris Russo is yelling at me.
12:01
Eno Sarris: Skaggs’ reduced strikeout rate and meh change have me thinking he was a good deeper league pickup but doubting his overall upside. Risk of bad command coming back too.
12:01
Comment From Tony G.
Hi Eno! Hope you’re having a stellar week. I was curious to hear your thoughts on Eugenio Suarez, and the likelihood he can be a productive fantasy player going forward. Thanks!
12:02
Eno Sarris: At least he makes a lot of contact, more than Danny Santana when I last looked.
12:02
Comment From Alex Meyer & Co.
Hi Eno…are there any high upside pitchers that should get the call up this month that you think could be a top 50 pitcher the rest of the way? Thanks!
12:02
Eno Sarris: Yeah, Meyer and Heaney. Marlins are closer than they/we expected.
12:02
Comment From Stanatee the Manatee
IMPORTANT: My grocery store has all craft been on sale this weekend. What Boulevard brew should I look for? I’m not a fan of overly bitter beers.
12:02
Eno Sarris: Saison Brett, Rye on Rye.
12:03
Comment From Stan
Looking for a DL stash. Best per game value (looking for quality not quantity) from the time they come off DL:
Hart (late June),
Gyorko (early July),
Gee (end of June),
Paxton (mid July),
Nate Jones (mid July),
Crain (early July),
Henderson (end of June)
12:03
Eno Sarris: Hart or Gyorko have the best upside. Might depend on where your lineup has space if they get good.
12:03
Comment From Maxamuz

USA! USA!

12:03
Comment From Everth Cabrera
I’m below the Mendoza line over the last 30 days and am under .230 for the season with 4% walks, what gives?!
12:03
Eno Sarris: Returned to his pre-Florida contact rate is mostly it.
12:03
Comment From Benny
Is my R. Zimmerman for his Cargo a no brainer?
12:03
Eno Sarris: YES
12:03
Comment From Ronald Belisario
I know I started off real shaky, but I’ve converted three straight save opportunities, knocking em down 1-2-3 in the first two chances, and allowing a run last time out. Have I solidified my standing as White Sox closer yet?
12:04
Eno Sarris: I thought you had it in the bag from the beginning. That team doesn’t need to make their young guys expensive.
12:04
Eno Sarris: (And Pence said Belisario’s sinker was the nastiest pitch he’d seen)
12:04
Comment From dutchbrowncoat
so it sure seems like a replay call might have been botched in the mets/brewers game last night.
12:04
Eno Sarris: Have seen a couple! Still humans!
12:04
Comment From person hscer
Ryan Zimmerman isn’t hopeless in left? Sure, there’s not even a parallel universe where he makes a Cespedes-type throw, but he’s been better than expected, yes?
12:04
Eno Sarris: Made some nice plays last night.
12:04
Comment From Pale Hose
Hey Eno. I put Hosmer on the block in a dynasty sim league. The best offer I got is Wong. Should I pull the trigger or hold?
12:04
Eno Sarris: Hold.
12:05
Comment From Greg
What’s up Eno
12:05
Eno Sarris: sup dude
12:05
Comment From carlos quentin
everyone was waiting patiently for….this???
12:05
Eno Sarris: Well I’m pretty sure he can hit .250.
12:05
Comment From Bradley
If you had a choice to keep a pitcher in 2015 only, Harvey or Hamels, who would you choose if you had to decide by end of summer, and why? Thanks!
12:05
Eno Sarris: Guy in the bigs.
12:05
Comment From Pale Hose
Ludes: Brian Eno did them first. Eno Sarris did them better.
12:05
Eno Sarris: Favorited.

Eno Sarris: ok

12:06
Eno Sarris: told you I’m weird.
12:06
Comment From Tom Jones
Think Kevin Gausman sticks in the rotation provided he puts in a decent start tonight against the Jays?
12:06
Eno Sarris: Yes. I hate to put this too much on one game, but it’s pretty huge. Toronto is on fire. If he can keep them muzzled, they’ll notice.
12:07
Comment From Ozzie
Don’t get me wrong, I’m enjoying watching Abreu hit homers off Cy Young winners, but you think he’s going to boost his BB% during the course of this season? Also, can the White Sox build around Sale and Abreu to be competitive for the next 3-4 years?
12:07
Eno Sarris: They sort of have a short window, provided by those two. I don’t think Abreu will be a huge walk rate guy, but we’ll see. They have enough that they could make the rebuild quick, and the Santiago trade was amazing.
12:08
Comment From Matt
What’s up Eno? Gotta eventually get rid of a SP to make room for CarGo when he comes off the DL. That said, would you trade Wacha, Kluber, and Choo for Hamels and Braun?
12:08
Eno Sarris: Yes.
12:08
Comment From Maxamuz

mind. blown.

12:08
Comment From Jon
Eno, thanks for all your work on the consensus rankings! That has to be a giant pain in the arse.
12:08
Eno Sarris: Oh yes.
12:08
Comment From Trying to Keep the Faith
ENOOOOOO! Sooooo, Verlander’s velocity (both average and max) has been UP his past two starts, but obviously the results still aren’t there. Do you think this suggests better days are ahead, or is he just reaching back and trying to pump gas at the expense of control/command/overall effectiveness?
12:08
Eno Sarris: I don’t know, but I’ve stopped looking for sell low offers given the new velocity. Time to hold.
12:08
Comment From person hscer
Can your musical tastes beat CCR + Weird Al + VNV Nation?
12:08
Comment From person hscer
(That’s classic rock + parody + “futurepop”)
12:09
Eno Sarris: Well, we’ll see. But Weird Al certainly shakes things up.
12:09
Comment From Justin
Sorry for the multiple posts – Altuve & Doolittle for Marte & Gio. Which side do you want?
12:09
Eno Sarris: Normally I’d take the Marte Gio side, but Altuve is legit and a top-two or three 2B, which is probably the best asset in the deal.
12:09
Comment From Yoenis Cespedes
How many WAR is my throwing arm worth?
12:09
Eno Sarris: Not that many. Look at Jeff Francouer.
12:10
Comment From Zach
I know Machado made a HUGE mistake, but I feel everyone hates him now. I know he threw the bat and it is dangerous and all, but be didn’t charge the mound, bat in hand trying to beat the pitcher to a pulp with it, and I feel that is how everybody is reacting to it as if he did just that. Honestly, he just flailed the bat over there. Still a very poor call on his part, but it is not life threatening like everybody is making it out to be. I made poor judgement calls when I was 21 too. People need to lighten up although I do agree it is a serious situation, just not as serious as everyone is making it out to be. Thoughts?
12:10
Eno Sarris: I was more upset by smirking at the catcher after hitting him. But he’s a young dude and he can learn. He’s also hitting the first bad stretch of his career, in a way, so let’s see what happens now.
12:10
Comment From Ballpark Frank
With Waino hurt is it finally time for Carlos Martinez to start? What would you expect from him as a starter ROS?
12:10
Eno Sarris: I think that boat has sailed. You’ll see someone come up from minors I bet.
12:11
Comment From zurzles
eno, what do you do about a competitive league where no one wants to make trades that aren’t obviously lopsided in their favor? trades NEVER happen, but there are plenty of offers being made.
12:11
Eno Sarris: Trades are super hard in all leagues. I try to gauge the league and my team right. Sometimes I overpay just to get what I need. Screw what they think. Just be careful, or the offers will get worse.
12:11
Comment From Mark Ellis Gold Glove
Is Soria going to close the rest of the year, or is Feliz going to be back and assume the roll? Also: how would you rank these closers for the rest of the year: Soria, Nathan, Rodriguez, Rodney?
12:12
Eno Sarris: Soria’s golden. Number one on your list. K-Rod second. Rodney and Nathan have problems, but at least Rodney’s throwing gas.
12:12
Comment From stonepie
granderson has turned it around tremendously over the last month. the power seems to be back
12:13
Eno Sarris: Power takes the longest to know. I thought he looked okay all along. And what I said about him not being Bay — that he has more athleticism and that’ll help him to a softer landing — seems more true now. Better LF D than Bay, patience still there. Always will have a bad BA though.
12:13
Comment From John Stamos
Should we just drop Wilson Ramos at this point? Current C is Mesoraco, but Ramos is my 7th guy to hit the DL and I can’t even fill out the starting lineup.
12:13
Eno Sarris: I think you can drop him. I hate having two catchers anyway.
12:13
Comment From Presidents of the United States of America
Driving right through Hershey, gonna drink me some Nugget Nectar.
12:13
Eno Sarris: YES
12:13
Comment From Miketron
Start Gausman tonight against the Toronto baseball crushers?
12:13
Eno Sarris: No. Sit and watch.
12:13
Comment From Nelson
When K-BB lets us down like for McCarthy, what else can we look at to show us that he sucks?
12:14
Eno Sarris: No change-up.
12:14
Comment From Ashtray
Weaver is ranked 28th. Archer is ranked 52nd. Discuss
12:14
Eno Sarris: Doubt it was like that for me. But they might be opposite pitchers. Archer has command issues, great stuff, bad change. Weaver has a great arsenal, great command, terrible fastball.
12:14
Comment From STiVo
Do you have a rauchbier you can recommend?
12:14
Eno Sarris: Only one I’ve ever liked is Stone’s Smoked Porter with Vanilla.
12:14
Comment From Billy the Goat
What’s your take on Wong and Odor?
12:15
Eno Sarris: Make sure to clean yourself down there.
12:15
Eno Sarris: (I’d rather have Odor, more chance to help in five cats.)
12:15
Comment From LarryA
Votto ROS over under 80/25/80/300 pace?
12:15
Eno Sarris: more runs in pace?
12:15
Comment From Alcides Escobar
I’m 4th in SB, 10th in RBI, 12th in Runs and second in Bsr WAR over the last calendar year but many experts still rate me below guys like Asdrubal, Everth, and Andrelton. What do I have to do to get a lil’ credit?
12:15
Eno Sarris: Good year bad year problems. it’s all BABIP to get him on base, too. But I like it.
12:16
Comment From J.D.
Your thoughts on Robbie Grossman ROS?
12:16
Eno Sarris: Deep leaguer, will hold job when Presley loses it. Some power and speed, OBP will come.
12:16
Comment From Ryan
You like any of the following bands? Linkin Park/Chevelle/Rise Against/Silverstein?
12:16
Eno Sarris: No, but the best I can do for you is

Comment From DGCO
Hey Eno. My bullpen sux, but is giving up $5 Leonys for $4 Tommy Hunter the wrong solution?
12:17
Eno Sarris: yes. i think Britton could hold it.
12:17
Comment From Guest
Verlander or Lackey Rest of way
12:17
Eno Sarris: Verlander.
12:17
Comment From splender man
Jake Mcgees shot as rays closer? I mean no one else has the velo in that pen to match.
12:17
Eno Sarris: I know! But they haven’t done it yet! And Balfour got the last one. I think it’s Balfour or Oviedo.
12:17
Comment From Kris
Westbrook Mexican Cake and Prairie Puncheon tonight for tonight’s epic sports night. CAN’T WAIT
12:17
Eno Sarris: Hate you.

Eno Sarris: I’m psyched but we have to pipe down or people will yell at us.
12:18
Comment From Chris "Mad Dog" Russo
HEY ENO, WHY AREN’T YOU WATCHING MY SHOW MORE OFTEN? IT’S AWESOME!
12:18
Eno Sarris: Stop stop please I apologize for whatever it was I did
12:18
Comment From Joseph (Orlando, FL)
Which young 3 do you want? Mets: Harvey, Wheeler, Syndergaard, Indians: Kluber, Bauer, Salazar? Cardinals: Wacha, Miller, C-Mart…How close/not close is it?
12:19
Eno Sarris: Next year, Mets for sure. Because Kluber is more “find” than “stud” still I think. And Indians ‘studs’ have problems. Cards three is killer but one might be an RP. Okay, so Cards / Mets is super close. But remember Harvey.
12:19
Comment From Ethan
How do you feel about Segura RoS? OPS is an extra category and his .603 is killing me
12:19
Eno Sarris: yeah OPS is tough on all shortstops though.
12:19
Comment From John
Eno, concerned about Bryant’s strikeouts? How are they likely to translate at the next level? Same for Joey Gallo
12:20
Eno Sarris: Yes, always concerned. Even on Springer. Really watching Gallo’s Double-A K rate right now.

Comment From Biggus Dikus
How long will Lawrie have 2nd eligibility?
12:20
Eno Sarris: With Francisco in town? At least another year I guess.
12:20
Comment From XandersBigBoyBoots
Eno, ACBF in Boston, there were some good beers. Left had a ginger infused beer, it was pretty good after. Jack’s Abby was awesome, as you said. Green Flash has a saison aged in red wine barrels, also really good. If i hadn’t had so much beer, I could tell you the names of all of these beers.
12:21
Eno Sarris: nice!
12:21
Comment From The Dude
You think Danny Salazar has got the yips? The Steve Blass disease? The fleas in the brain thing?
12:21
Eno Sarris: No, the slider got worse. Looks like he’ll be one of those change-up guys that has trouble with his breaker. Maybe a cutter will be his savior. Command also an issue though.
12:21
Comment From Eno Sarris
“ENO IT’S ME – YOU!
12:21
Eno Sarris: freaky
12:21
Comment From Marty
Should I be looking to deal Solarte?
12:22
Eno Sarris: I think he can .280/15+ type of stuff. Makes contact, walk rate is good v RHP.
12:22
Comment From sell sell sell
I own Kazmir, am 6-14 (12 team mixed h2h, we do doubleheaders) and have an outside chance to make the playoffs (just 2 games back). Someone offered me Gausman for Kazmir (we have 5 keeper maxs). I rejected it and am currently trying to get him to throw in Stroman as well. What do you think of this situation? Is selling the inury-risky Kazmir a good move for those just Gausman, or should I try hard to get stro as well?
12:22
Eno Sarris: If you get both, you have two 50/50 shots at a better young pitcher than Kazmir, and then I’d do it.
12:22
Comment From Sleeper & the Best!
Do you have a good comp for Alex Meyer? And does he matter when he arrives….which is soon right?
12:23
Eno Sarris: Dunno, Alex Cobb with more velocity? Curve, Change, no-seam sinker fastball.
12:23
Comment From chris
Much hope for Craig going forward? He rebounded a bit from his awful April but he’s just a singles hitter and doesn’t walk much.
12:23
Eno Sarris: .280/18 type. Too many grounders, but the grounders will be good for BA.
12:23
Comment From Bruce
Chase Whitley better than Phelps?
12:24
Eno Sarris: Yes. Love Whitley. Three above-average pitches, even if his fastball is 91 and he’s a converted closer that may only get 120 IP.
12:24
Comment From Hrkac Circus
The Twins have been pretty clear that Meyer will be on an extremely tight innings limit, is there any reason to believe he’ll be a starter in the majors at all this year?
12:24
Eno Sarris: Getting his feet wet.
12:24
Comment From Guest
Chances Mejia holds onto the closer’s gig?
12:24
Eno Sarris: Love love him. He’s got it.
12:24
Comment From XandersBigBoyBoots
Is Sean Doolittle elite Eno? Fastball velo is the same, but location seems better, getting more swings and misses with it. Slider has been better this year as well. He’s pitching like Chapman light, can he keep it up?
12:25
Eno Sarris: Gotta do that piece we’ve been planning for so long. Love him as a person and a pitcher. More sliders this year is good. Throws a change-up once a month.
12:25
Comment From stonepie
marte with 3 straight muli-hit games
12:25
Eno Sarris: HIs demise was over-exaggerated. Bad plate discipline but great tools.
12:25
Comment From Lars
Which player’s lack of power is most surprising so far: Holliday, Wright, or Cano?
12:25
Eno Sarris: None of the above. Wright as outages, Holliday’s getting old and Cano just moved to SafeCo.

Comment From Marty

Did you see the tentacled mass they pulled out from Cargo?!?

12:26
Eno Sarris: quality interlude.
12:26
Comment From Josef
Time to cut bait with Charlie Blackmon in a shallow league? I’m currently platooning him with Alex Rios and trying to get him in at Coors Field, but Yelich, Khris Davis and Dexter Fowler are available on the wire. Who would you go with?
12:26
Eno Sarris: I like that Blackmon/Rios platoon.
12:26
Comment From chris
Is it worth cutting Brian McCann for either Norris or Jaso in an OBP league?
12:27
Eno Sarris: Man, I know the shift is killing McCann but it can’t be that time yet. Jaso if you do, because he’s the guy that starts more.
12:27
Comment From Nick
For a long time, even back when I played, I wondered how it was that so many pitchers could throw broadly the same pitch at varying levels of success. Since you’ve talked to pitchers often about grips, have you ever thought about what it is that differentiates one pitcher’s curveball from another’s? Is it the feel they have for the pitch that makes one person throw it better than another?
12:28
Eno Sarris: Very interesting. Mechanics, deception, unique grips, and maybe command (repeatability of mechanics) seem like things that could differentiate.
12:28
Comment From Guest
real talk- who is your dual citizenship rooting for in Group G? The U.S. is the correct answer.
12:28
Eno Sarris: I always default to the underdog and Germany is never the underdog.
12:28
Comment From Guest
World Cup of Beer final 4?
12:29
Eno Sarris: Yeah we should do one, huh.
12:29
Comment From XandersBigBoyBoots
Eno, Rubby has the stuff, makes people look foolish, can he stick in the rotation, or is he a future elite closer?
12:29
Eno Sarris: They going to give him as many chances as they can. 5.2 IP is about all you can expect right now though.
12:29
Comment From Sleeper & the Best!
Asche or Uribe?
12:29
Eno Sarris: Asche for sure.
12:29
Comment From Bruce
Are you looking at any non-prospect propects like Jake Lamb, or Souza to be able to come up and mash?
12:29
Eno Sarris: Souza had highest batted ball speed in the AFL. There’s something there.
12:29
Comment From The Oriole Bird
Going to take my 1-year-old to Aberdeen this weekend to see his first baseball game. Someday when he’s older, I hope we can point to all of Dylan Bundy’s Cy Young Awards and say, “Yeah, I saw his first rehab start after his first of many Tommy John surgeries!”
12:30
Comment From Marty
The player to reader ratio is extremely skewed today, but I’m still me.
12:30
Comment From JEB
Will Jimmy Rollins regress, or can I expect this type of output from him all season long?
12:30
Eno Sarris: Kinda like him to keep it up.
12:30
Comment From Saison Bernice
Beergraphs related: If my calculations are correct, Tired Hands has released 63 new beers since Feb. 1.
12:30
Eno Sarris: All in their tasting room, I believe. So not many check ins on UT. But I’ll take a look.
12:31
Comment From Miami Pete
ROS outlook on Heaney? Will there be innings limit?
12:32
Eno Sarris: Threw 120 last year, so he could throw 150-160 this year. Strikeout rate going up, added to his polish, and home park, makes me like him more now. Has 80 or so innings left.
12:32
Comment From Nelson
Whats Eno Sarris’ opinion on cask beer?
12:33
Eno Sarris: Love it. Love the way it gives smooth mouthfeel to a crisp hoppy beer. Not for everyone. Do. Not. Like. Cask. Bitters.
12:33
Comment From Alex
Did you watch Tyler Matzek last night? I picked him up in a 20 teamer, expecting to drop him the next day but I think I’ll hold on for now.
12:33
Eno Sarris: Yeah hold. Control best of his career, has gas.
12:33
Comment From Ron Swanson

Dropped Yordano and was able to pick him back up on the waiver. I'm surrounded by idiocy.

12:33
Comment From to ZACH
HE HIT NORRIS ON THE HEAD WITH HIS BACKSWING TWICE ON PURPOSE!!!!!
12:34
Eno Sarris: ‘purpose’ is debatable, but his response to finding out that he had was not good.
12:34
Comment From Nelson
We need to talk about Josh Tomlin. Can his K-rate stay 2 higher than his career avg?
12:34
Eno Sarris: Made a pitching mix change! Dropped his sinker and change. Could McHugh.
12:34
Comment From juan pierres mustache
zach is right! i’m going to go throw some bats at people in a shopping mall now
12:34
Comment From Sleeper & the Best!
Dietrich mashing in New Orleans. I know he was sent down for “defense”, but give me a break, right?
12:35
Eno Sarris: He’s not liked by the owner because of the Tino Martinez thing. Never know what that means for him.
12:35
Eno Sarris: Let’s push the tempo.

12:36
Comment From Addison
Despite being on the Diamondbacks, would you consider Reed a #1 closer?
12:36
Eno Sarris: He’s probably at the bottom of the top 15.
12:36
Comment From Rated Rookie
Ventura’s start yesterday was a thing of beauty. Not a lot of Ks but lots of GBs and a very efficient pitchcount.
12:36
Eno Sarris: Was like 15 grounders to 5 flies, that was nice.
12:36
Comment From Guest
1400 IP limit – sit Ervin at Coors today?
12:36
Eno Sarris: yes.
12:36
Comment From Guest
should i be excited i picked up chase anderson off the waiver wire?
12:36
Eno Sarris: His slider is decent, his fastball goes 93, and his change is sexcellent.
12:37
Comment From El Duderino
My main man Eno, would you drop J.J. Hardy or Chris Owings for Rougned Odor?
12:37
Eno Sarris: Wow, RoS for Hardy is .275/10. Odor can beat that.
12:38
Comment From JoJo
How do you respond to a guy that consistently sends lopsided trade offers without severing ties? Rejection after rejection and yet the offers seem to worsen.
12:38
Eno Sarris: Send an offer back that you’ve thought about and find actually fair for both sides. Show him how you value players.
12:38
Comment From Matt
Following up that recent question about Holliday, Wright, and Cano, do you think they each have a good chance to still reach 20 on the year?
12:38
Eno Sarris: Yeah that’s not crazy.
12:38
Comment From marichal
Neil Ramirez. Will he close for the Cubs this year?
12:38
Eno Sarris: Doubt it, but he will get some saves.
12:39
Comment From Gus
Should i cut Plouffe free and go with A. Ramirez ROS?
12:39
Eno Sarris: I like Plouffe and would do that yes.
12:39
Comment From Angel dust in the outfield
Dave said yesterday that Adams, Shelby, Martinez, and Piscotty was not enough for Price, what do you think?
12:40
Eno Sarris: I respectfully disagree. That’s a great package that hits on their needs pretty well.
12:40
Eno Sarris: Maybe a minor league starter instead of CMart, if he’s just an RP.
12:40
Comment From Des
What can I expect Collin McHugh to do ROS. The recent short outings a cause for concern?
12:41
Eno Sarris: Don’t know what his innings situation is. But I do his like mix enough. The change isn’t great, but a curve and a slider and a show-me/grounder change is probably enough.
12:41
Comment From Ryguy
Go Die Mannschaft!!!
12:41
Eno Sarris: In the final eight, yes.
12:41

Re: Segura. Rather have him or Bonifacio rest of the way? Position doesn’t matter in this case

Comment From AK
if it can only be one reason, why was everyone wrong about Tanaka? (I know not everyone was wrong but I want to be provocative, but I’m unwilling to actually stand by that posture).

Eno Sarris: The slider isn’t always there, and when you’re translating stats from Japan, you’re stuck with a small sample size and it’s hard to know if Japanese pitchers are getting better or just the last few were better than translated stats said they would be.

Thoughts on Eovaldi ROS, innings limit late in year? Legit growth & solid #4 fantasy starter?
12:44
Eno Sarris: Threw 130 but he’s 24 and the team might be going for a wild card. I bet they push him to 180 and just skip him a few times.
12:44
Comment From Guest
Don’t read too much into how hitters describe pitchers. The Twins once signed Dusty Hughes because Mauer and Morneau said he was nasty.
12:45
Eno Sarris: It’s true. Even Pence said it was mostly because he was a reliever.

saw that the rotographs crew had ervin santana ranked pretty high but he’s strung together 3-4 pretty bad games. just a speedbump in a good season?

Comment From Sotomayor
Was offered Brad Miller for Semien and Villar in an AL-only keeper. Should I accept?
12:46
Eno Sarris: Actually, yes. Villar is a stop gap to Correa at best. Semien has K issues, too. Even bad Miller has been k’ing less than those two.
12:46

Comment From Daniel
Why does WAR rate the Padres pitchers worse than FIP-? Padres pitching is 10th in the majors in FIP-, but 20th in the league in WAR. Is the Padres pitching above average? Or below average?
12:49
Eno Sarris: Hmm, maybe FIP- is only league adjusted and not park adjusted. I should know this, but I don’t use FIP- much.

Comment From Yu
I know it’s kind of like splitting hairs, but if you had to choose for fantasy purposes, what order would you place Braun, Gomez, and Puig?
12:51
Eno Sarris: Great one. Puig’s chance at a good BA and youth puts him first in my book. Gomez next because he seems less risky than Braun.
12:51
Comment From Hieronymous
Go back and watch the video. He doesn’t smirk until a full 30 seconds afterwards, and it’s while talking to Adam Jones. Jones probably just said something funny while they were shooting the shit during a downtime.

Comment From Jon
I hate owning Matt Kemp as a keeper. Should I be trying hard to sell him right now or wait until he hopefully rebuilds some value?
12:52
Eno Sarris: I’m looking at Sal Perez for him, have D Norris in a 12-team dynasty. Seems crazy, but if I got a better offer, I’d do it.
12:52
Eno Sarris: Kemp’s glove and bad plate discipline are starting to get to him.
12:52
Comment From Arno
FWIW, since getting demoted, Semien has a 20.9% walk rate and a 9.3% K rate. That’s not a typo. Can any meaning be derived from this?
12:53
Eno Sarris: He always had better K rates in minors. I really want him to strike out like 22-24% in majors, he could be a good .260 double-double guy anywhere on infield like that.
12:53
Comment From Pliny
Eno – who would you rather have in the foreseeable future: Sano, Gallo, Betts or Drew Hutchison? Pick just one.

Are you still bullish on Wil Myers? Is he an attractive buy low candidate in a dynasty league?
12:53
Eno Sarris: Real low. I think he can .260/25+ and power is down.

Comment From Corey Kluber
Whatcha mean average fastball??! 97 (yeah, tops) with movement isn’t average!

What is on Hudson’s finger nail in those pictures?
12:55
Eno Sarris: Meant to ask tuesday at park, but I couldn’t get him. You can see from grips that the middle finger is prominent in some grips and I think it’s to keep the nail from breaking.
12:56
Comment From Ryan
Regarding Machado: Any pitcher throwing at a hitter is more dangerous than the speed the bat came out of Machado’s hand towards Donaldson… Just saying. It was slow and he had plenty of time to react if it was actually headed toward him.
12:56
Eno Sarris: True, but even as a guy that tries not to shake fingers too much, the game wasn’t great for Machado.
12:56
Comment From Turbo Sloth
Technically speaking, it’s not paranoia, it’s confirmation bias

Harvey sitting in FA in my keeper league. Can celebrate Strasmas every 5 days next year and Gray for the next 2. Stash and keep him next year? 6 keeper max.

Comment From Ryguy
Heard Peralta was throwing in bullpen in the 9th in case Balfour blew up again. TB seems like last org to drive up price of Mcgee. Isn’t it Peralta next? Why you thinking Oviedo?
12:59
Eno Sarris: Oviedo in sixth was weird. Could totally be Peralta. But the way they’ve used Peralta in past suggests to me that if it’s Peralta, Balfour will get job back. Might have already.

nothing wrong with squarepusher, i guess for a while there he was bunched up with all those “trip hop” groups, but he is more versatile and sounds better today

Am i out of line for thinking about dropping Cain in Ottoneu ? His homer prob is killing me and nobody wants him and i got younger, cheaper and better pitching
1:00
Eno Sarris: Hold, don’t cut. I think he can be a good start at home at the very least. Assume you’re talking points where homers are killer.
1:00
Comment From Dost thEno what I mean?
First — I’m toats in love with Dirt Wolf (DIPA) by Victory. Second — Should I hang on to Bauer or dump him for Walker, Meyer, or some other prospect?
1:01
Eno Sarris: Yes and no. Hold Bauer for another start. HIs fastball command was okay, he just hung some curves.
1:01
Comment From Matt
What do you think of Jake Arrieta?
1:02
Eno Sarris: No real standout pitch (but three that he throws) and bad command of a high-velocity fastball means he’s always got promise. Doubt he really connects though.
1:02
Comment From Norm
Odorizzi’s new splitter added this Spring the reason for his mini-breakout?

When do SwStr% numbers stabilize for a pitcher? and for various pitches (# of pitches)?
1:07
Eno Sarris: I don’t know that yet. Maybe an offseason thing at this point, with my schedule. But I do know that K% is around 150 BF. And since 4 pitches per Batter Faced, I bet Swinging Strike rate stabilizes around 50 BF.
1:07

Comment From Tim Thomas
I rarely ask questions specific to my team, but you’re the one guy who’s opinion I value most. So here goes…I’ve suffered through owning Brad Miller all season in my AL-only league, and though he has been a tad bit better of late, I picked up Suarez just to make sure I’m covered at SS. Corey Hart is available on my waiver wire, so I’m contemplating picking him up. That said, Suarez and possibly Danny Farquhar are the only two guys I could drop for Hart. What should I do? Thanks so much!!!
1:10
Eno Sarris: With Jesus coming up, and Logan not dead yet, I think Seattle’s too crowded to make Hart a must pickup.
1:10
Comment From erghammer
Thanks for the chat! I need a second shortstop to carry me through the year. I’m worried that DD is cutting into Owings’ PT. Aybar and Lowrie are available on my waiver wire. Dump Owings for one of them?
1:11
Eno Sarris: Lowrie is a super solid backup SS. Owings has more upside, though. And the loser of the audition might still end up starting like in NY.
1:11
Comment From The Oriole Bird
Gary Thorne (O’s TV play-by-play guy) had to introduce a graphic in one of last week’s games that used WAR. He quite literally did a belly laugh after saying “WAR.” Then Mike Bordick had to read what was presumably fed to him by the producers, and it was a mostly accurate statement about WAR. Bordick sounded like he’d rather chew glass, and someone was holding a gun to his head.
1:11
Eno Sarris: baby steps.
1:11
Comment From Pale Hose
Eno – has a pitcher ever declined in giving you grip pics?
1:12
Eno Sarris: G Cole does something funky with his fastballs he wouldn’t show me. When I was taking Roark’s grip pictures, a teammate yelled at him that he was giving away secrets so I yelled back it was just grips. Mostly the pitchers dig it.

How would you rank their long term prospects, Yordano, Bauer, Hutchinson?
1:13
Eno Sarris: Probably still in that order, considering Hutch has the least pedigree and already had surgery. But if Bauer progresses, remember all the things that people said about Ventura and his size and durability. (And remember Kaz was good for a while before he broke down).

Your thoughts on Josh Rutledge ROS?
1:15
Eno Sarris: Problem is that he has more power and speed than LeM, but worse plate discipline and defense. And it’s hard to know what the team will look at going forward. RutRut has mixed league upside, though, so he’s worth picking up in leagues where you have a deep bench and a need at MI.
1:15
Comment From J
Hey Eno, any good sours you’d rec?
1:16
Eno Sarris: Anything from Almanac or Russian River. The Goose Island sisters (Halia, Juliette, Gillian) are all good but expensive. But easier to find than others. And all sours are expensive.
1:17
Comment From Jake
Do you see any reason for McCann to turn it around?
1:17
Eno Sarris: Even with the shift on, a .233 BABIP is a bit extreme. Across baseball, the shift depresses BABIP on the order of ten points.

What range of WAR per yr do you think a pitcher needs to achieve to be considered an Ace, a top of rotation starter, and a back end of rotation starter?

1:21
Comment From Shawn
Who would you try to target if selling Keuchel? Alex Cobb? Wacha?
1:22

Comment From Zach
Any suggestions on where to look, or what to look for, in terms of jobs as an American moving to Germany with no real plan?
1:40
Eno Sarris: LOL. They speak German well, but there are usually jobs editing English for English-language publications. Or teaching English.

Comment From Hogwagon
Why does everyone predict the demise of the 300 win pitcher? People have been saying that with each one to do it since i can remember yet if you look it up, half the guys who have won 300 won their 300th in my lifetime (’77). #FAIL
1:41
Eno Sarris: Fewer seasonal wins every year. Fewer 20-game winners. Fewer innings for starters. More innings for relievers. Guys winning 300th did it in a different environment, largely.
1:41
Eno Sarris: by seasonal wins I mean, the best starters are winning fewer games every year.

Comment From Baseball Salamander
Wow, you called Dozier. After seeing the results of last year’s bold predictions I started tuning them out. Brad Miller still worth grabbing in deep leagues?

Eno Sarris: Yes.

Comment From Mr Winker
My league freaked out when I landed Matt Kemp, Ryan Howard and Charlie Blackmon for Chris Sale. They tried to veto but I prevailed. Thoughts? Lopsided deal? Man do I hate trade vetos.
1:42
Eno Sarris: I’d rather have Sale!

Eno Sarris: Hey guys, have a phone call I gotta make!!

Eno Sarris: Thanks guys

    Eno, love reading your articles and insights here and on twitter! What do you make of Verlander. His velocity was back up last night averaging 95ish on his fastball and topping out at 99, and he appeared to have good movement on all his pitches. Is there reason for hope (the surgery etc) that he can get back in a groove and be a useful commodity both in real life and fantasy?
