Comment From Alex
Who would you rather have pitch for your fantasy team for the rest of the season. AJ Burnett or Jake Arrieta (K/9 on top of reg 5 categories)

12:00
Eno Sarris: Arrieta! He doesn’t have a hernia!

12:00
Comment From Matt
Mike Minor for Anibal Sanchez, who wins? 6×6 Roto Dynasty League with QS.

12:00
Eno Sarris: Anibal despite the fact that he makes me nervous, shoulder-wise.

12:00
Comment From Jon
Sup Eno. I saw you mention some feedback you’re excited to incorporate into S&B. Any teasers for us?

12:01
Eno Sarris: Just got to be snappier. And also make sure my internet connection doesn’t suck.

12:01
Comment From Sam
With Harang getting killed last night, do you think A. Wood gets the call for doubleheader on 6/28 and stays up after that?

12:01
Eno Sarris: Totally had that thought. Knew Floyd or Harang would go, I think it’s Harang now.

12:01

Small Craft on a Milk Sea is better. Then again this is even better than his Warp stuff:

12:02
Eno Sarris: Apparently this chat is dangerous. #luded

12:02
Comment From Desperate for a 2B
On Sleeper/Bust you got me fired up about Betts. Assuming ESPN has him as a 2B do I drop Hill for him AFTER he comes up?

12:02
Eno Sarris: Would love to have him on my bench, but ESPN doesn’t have him in the system, so good luck.

12:02
Comment From stonepie
whats up with kyle gibson? in the last month, he’s among the league leaders in swstr% and GB%.

12:04
Eno Sarris: Here’s the weird thing about Gibson: his pitch type peripherals are excellent. Change 17% whiffs, 66% GBS, Slider 20%/50%, Curve 13%/25%, Sinker 7%/60%. Should stop throwing his fourseamer. Oh and look at that, he has recently.

12:04
Comment From Ben
I can’t believe I’m asking this – drop Mauer for Rosario?

12:04
Eno Sarris: Nah, Rosario has his own problems.

12:04
Comment From American League Hustle
Hi Eno. Thanks as always for doing the chat. I need your guidance this weekend! Was Marcus Stroman’s start at Yankee Stadium something to worry about, or simply one of those speedbumps a young pitcher like him is bound to go through? And most importantly, should I start him in Cincinnati on Sunday?

12:05
Eno Sarris: I’d be careful about starting him in homer-happy stadiums.

12:05
Comment From Miketron
Any other pitchers you think could benefit from the Jesse Chavez Legacy?

12:05
Eno Sarris: Will have to look, but I did suggest it to Kluber once.

12:06
Comment From Slap Dickson
Hey Eno! I’ve got a UTL spot up for grabs…who do you like better ROS…Belly Butter or Neil Walker?

12:06
Eno Sarris: Walker will hit more homers!

12:06
Comment From Miketron
Who would you rather have ROS, Kendrys or V-Mart?

12:06
Eno Sarris: VMart.

12:06
Comment From Tony G.
Please, please, pretty please, tell me that Kevin Gausman has pitched himself into Baltimore’s starting rotation. If they demote him again, I may cry.

12:06
Comment From Jon
I have Gausman in a minors spot (and can keep him there indefinitely… I’ve been waiting until I was sure he had a role). Call him up and lose Kuroda?

12:07
Eno Sarris: Y’all know I love Gausman. Slider’s still bad and the four-seamer is worse than it should be, but I liked his command in the last start. And he’s the only guy that *could* be an ace, so I think he’s in.

12:07
Comment From Rated Rookie
When–if–he signs, would you rather have Carlos Rodon or Archie Bradley in a keep-forever league?

12:07
Eno Sarris: Rodon.

12:07
Eno Sarris: Don’t like Bradley’s command issues.

12:07
Comment From Bobby Boucher
Thoughts on Eugenio Suarez as of June 19, 2014?

12:07
Eno Sarris: Could give you an empty batting average.

12:07
Comment From Slap Dickson
Ever had Sam Smith’s Organic Ale? It’s pretty awesome

12:08
Eno Sarris: Sam Smith is under-rated, in my opinion. Their milk stout is about the sweetest beer you’ll ever have, but I like their beers in general.

12:08
Comment From Bradley
Did you read that article on Effective velocity? If so what are your thoughts on it? And, good luck playing goalie again in Mexico’s next wc game.

12:08
Eno Sarris: The one thing that Chris Young convinced me of is that there are things about deception and effective velocity that are not yet quantified and that a team that does so will have a step ahead.

12:08
Comment From Opti-mets-tic
Over/Under David Wright 2014 totals: 15 HR 80 RBI

12:08
Eno Sarris: Over/under.

12:09
Comment From Baseball Salamander
I have sometimes thought of listening to everything Brian Eno wrote or produced, over however long that takes.

12:09
Eno Sarris: Oh yeah that would take a long ass time.

12:09
Comment From klunky buttz
what do you think of Ben Zobrist’s wife’s music

12:09
Eno Sarris: Dunno, let’s check it out.

12:09
Israel Gomes:

12:09
Eno Sarris: Oh god no.

12:10
Comment From Ashtray
What pitchers would you move for Ryan Zimmerman? Gray? Bailey? Cole?

12:10
Eno Sarris: Bailey.

12:10
Comment From Krusty
Abreu 35% HR/FB and 20 HRs. How many HR’s in the 2nd half as the first figure regresses?

12:10
Eno Sarris: I think he might just hit a few more fly balls and still hit a lot of homers.

12:10
Comment From 1st place jays
Eno thanks for your work week in and week out. Please Rank the following ROS: Heaney, Stroman, Gausman, Arrieta

12:10
Eno Sarris: Gausman Arrieta Heaney Stroman

12:10
Comment From Matt
All-time favorite sour beer?

12:11
Eno Sarris: Russian River Consecration or Almanac Sour Porter or The Bruery The Wanderer or Drei Fonteinen St Lamvinus.

12:11
Comment From 1st place jays
I know you said that you normally wait till the 5th round to draft your first pitcher in a 6×6 league. How long would you wait if you were in a ROTO league with 6 hitting categories and 4 pitching categories (granted one category is saves)?

12:11
Eno Sarris: Even longer. 8-10th.

12:11
Comment From Johnny Rockets
I feel bad for Ben if he’s forced to listen to that.

12:11
Eno Sarris: My ears!

12:12
Comment From Cory
Eno, great article today on Arrieta, in a keeper league, would you pick him up and drop either Liriano or Estrada?

12:12
Eno Sarris: I think Liriano is droppable.

12:12
Comment From twix
Hey Eno, I have Eddie Rosario on my milb squad in a dynasty league, he likes to smoke doobies lol but do you think he will be useful going forward i know that brian dozier looks like he will stick at 2nd but eddie rosario plays 2nd and they are using him in the outfield so do you think that he will be useful going forward to the twins and to my fantasy team like getting home run hits thank you eno i enjoy your chats and i like it when you answer my questions because it helps me to find out who is useful for my team like maybe eddie rosario will be good?

12:12
Eno Sarris: I’m really worried about Rosario. Don’t love his swing, don’t love the history, don’t love the plate approach. Think he might be a bust.

12:12
Comment From Krusty
Maybe Zobrist’s wife can move easily btwn diff genres of music like he can play multiple positions, easily. She might do a mean Bach on violin.

12:13
Comment From Maxamuz

I watched Space Jam last night (Great movie) and Ya..this..

12:13
Comment From Ed
Would Juliana Zobrist be happier living in Toronto or Oakland?

12:13
Comment From Jake
AHHHHHHHHHH

12:13
Eno Sarris: Sorry guys.

12:13
Eno Sarris: Sticking within the genre, sorta, let’s do new music.

Comment From Nelson
What are your early impressions of Odor? Will he be a 12 team MI starter next year? (if he has a starting job)

12:14
Eno Sarris: Yeah that’s important though. Where will he play? Outfield? Seems a waste. I do think he can be top18 if he has a job.

12:15
Comment From Jeff
Jesse Hahn….Got enough to stick around this season?

12:15
Eno Sarris: I really like him. But. I really like that I found him in my 20-team dynasty. Dunno beyond that. Great curve and fastballs, but I think he needs another pitch.

12:15
Comment From Kyle
You think with the rise of craft brewing that we will see a boom in canned craft beer soon? Longer shelf life, better for distribution and can take cans more places.

12:15
Eno Sarris: It’s happening. Bell’s is canning now, others will follow.

12:16
Comment From Sadwick
I had a funny thought that the Braves could go after Ben Zobrist to bolster the offense, play him every day wherever that may be, and still not have to openly acknowledge that the Upton and Johnson contracts are awful by replacing one of them. That make any sense? Would Tampa really deal Zobrist, or do they only sell Price at the deadline?

12:16
Eno Sarris: I just feel like this team was good last year and is mostly under contract for next year. I think it’s only Price.

12:16
Comment From Optimus Prime
What’s your opinion of Derek Norris?

12:17
Eno Sarris: love that caveman. Improved his strikeout rate, I’d bet by looking at fewer strike threes, and the aggression has helped him. Playing against righties now. Love him. Have him in a mixed league even.

12:17
Comment From chris
Does Ramirez end up getting the closer gig in Chicago?

12:17
Eno Sarris: I think he has it now?

12:17
Comment From Art Vandelay
Drop Everth Cabrera to stash Betts? I have Suarez to fill in the interim, could make a trade for Alcides or someone of that ilk.

12:17
Eno Sarris: I think I’d drop Suarez for Betts.

12:17
Comment From person hscer
What about Seth Smith’s Organic Ale?

12:17
Eno Sarris: Only like it two thirds of the time.

12:17
Comment From Nelson
Jesse Chavez or Chase Whitley?

12:18
Eno Sarris: Great question because who has more innings this year? Feel like the A’s might just pitch Chavez all year. Unsure Yanks will when they fall out.

12:18
Comment From Jake
Is James Jones, a legit threat to steal 30 total bags by seasons’s end? Already at 10 in under 155 PAs.

12:18
Eno Sarris: Yes.

12:18

Comment From Nelson
Favorite Dead song?

12:19
Eno Sarris: Sugar Magnolia, sorry I know. Or Estimated Prophet.

12:19
Comment From Jake
REQUEST: Eno, any chance we can get a deep piece on MI guys? Rankings are nice but, for us deep-leaguers, we could really use a stat dive on the SS and 2B outside of the top 8-10 at their positions. For example, Gennett is top 10 in WRC+, wOBA, and Off WAR for the position but the production has been moderate. Its hard to contextualize the value of his peripherals.

12:19
Eno Sarris: I would say that we normally go pretty deep, but I’ll make sure the MI guys know of this request!

12:19
Comment From Beer!
Eno! I don’t use Untapped, so I’m part of the problem, but I was pleasantly surprised to find so many great brewers that didn’t show up on Beergraphs on my tour through the upper south. Diamond Bear and Core in Arkansas, Blackstone and Memphis Made in TN, as well as the listed Yazoo and Lazy Magnolia in MS… Summary: there is a lot of great beer! Also: BEER!!!

12:19
Eno Sarris: Yeah there is great small beer everywhere!

12:19
Comment From Jeff Locke
Will I get rocked by the Reds today?

12:19
Eno Sarris: Yes.

12:20
Comment From J Dog
Thoughts on Hutchinson in NY tonight?

12:20
Eno Sarris: Nervous.

12:20
Comment From Air Conditioners Rattle
Dellon Betances — Best or Supa Dupa Best?

12:20
Eno Sarris: Supa Dupa Koopa Troopa Best.

12:20
Comment From Guest
Heaney gonna be treated similar to Salazar last year (5 inning, 80 pitches)?

12:20
Eno Sarris: Marlins seem to just let their guys go.

12:20
Comment From Cas-ENO Royale
i noticed that Sabathia and Liriano are available in just about all my leagues and I need a 6th starter…that means dropping Hutchison or e. Santana or kuroda. What do you think?

12:21
Eno Sarris: No thanks. Well, maybe if Hutch gets rocked tonight, I’d drop him, DL CC just in case he’s better when his knee is better, and then pick up someone else.

12:21
Comment From Puff Monkleton
I have tracked BABIP and FIP/xFIP for a long time but I don’t know if I’m using it correctly. How do you use it as an indicator and how can it help me to determine who’s gonna be good?

12:22
Eno Sarris: I’d try to move on to more effective small-sample metrics. Look at K%-BB%. Look at GB%. Crazy HR/FBs over 20% should regress towards the league average (10%). High swinging strike rates usually beget good K% unless you’re Jaime Garcia.

12:22
Comment From Moooooookie
If you had to give an exact date for Mookie Betts to be called up, what day would you pick?

12:22
Eno Sarris: June 24th. My birthday.

12:22
Comment From Jake
Does last night strengthen Kershaw’s 2014 Cy Young case? 1.60 FIP, ERA heading in that direction, 12 K/9, the writers just might forgive being short 2 or 3 starts.

12:23
Eno Sarris: yeah he has that iconic moment going for him.

12:23
Comment From juan pierres mustache
lagunitas is already thinking about building brewery #3

12:23
Eno Sarris: Yeah, Tony Magee did tell me that when I interviewed him. Felt that building new ones kept him closer to his customers.

12:23
Comment From chris
Do you prefer McCann or Norris for a roto league with BA, OBP & SLG as categories?

12:24
Eno Sarris: I’m still not dropping McCann for Norris because of PA, and their regression arrows are pointing in different directions.

12:24
Comment From Ellen Kershaw
What kind of haul should I be able to get for ol’ Kershaw right about now? Points H2H league. Keeper league too.

12:24
Eno Sarris: Anything you want, but if you’re trying to get Trout or Puig, you’ll probably have to add someone like Leonys Martin to bridge the gap between pitcher and hitter.

12:24
Comment From Doug
What’s up with Jay Bruce? Usually by now he’s had one or two of his patented hot streaks but can’t seem to put it together, even in age 27 prime season.

12:24
Eno Sarris: Well he was hurt, give him another week or two.

12:24
Comment From Stephen
Billy Hamilton or HILLY BAMILTON

12:24
Eno Sarris: Obvious.

12:25
Comment From Krusty
Do you follow futbol? Seems MLB’s new technologies for tracking positioning, etc., would have a huge benefit in evaluating players in soccer. Do you know if any leagues are using advanced videometrics (if that’s a word)?

12:25
Eno Sarris: Yes they are working on it, and there’s huge potential there. Not a ton of it makes its way to the internet though.

12:25
Comment From chris
Would you rate Arrieta in the Hughes-Keuchel breakout territory? Better, worse?

12:25
Eno Sarris: A little worse. His Chaveziation is not complete, and using the cutter a ton does make me a little nervous about health.

Comment From Mike Russo
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA GOOD MORNING ENO!!!!!!

12:26
Eno Sarris: no I’m sorry, whatever I did, I’m sorry

12:26
Comment From DGCO
Am I allowed to get a bit excited about Rubby? Ottoneu points team, $1.

12:27
Eno Sarris: Of course. Great change, good slider, 96 mph fastball. Hopefully his control will improve, he won’t have a ton of innings, and he’s only pitching five per game (so wins will be tough) but I love him.

12:27
Eno Sarris: I ONLY HATE HIM BECAUSE WHY DID YOU TAKE SO LONG I HAVE NO SHARES NOW

12:27
Comment From Jake
Best books/websites/general resources for advanced hockey stats?

12:27
Eno Sarris: HockeyGraphs is legit, even though jenky eye on the name.

12:27
Comment From Guest
Is Jesse Hahn a no-brainer against the Mariners at home?

12:27
Eno Sarris: Yes.

12:27
Comment From XOOP
fun fact acting like your ears are melting when you hear a generic pop song makes you look like a 14 year old who just discovered slipknot

12:27
Comment From CommentGraphs
Fantasy baseball; where the rules are made up and the stats used don’t matter!

12:28
Comment From Jake
FOLLOW UP: FG does go very deep in the analysis and i love the coverage at FG, sorry for any offense. I believe I misspoke. What I meant is maybe a piece that expounds on the tiers articles. The top two tiers are pretty straight forward but its that mix of relatively unknown commodities in tiers 4, 5, & 6, especially at MI, that makes up some of the more difficult decisions in fantasy leagues. Those players are difficult to trade for and its hard IMHO to sort out the mediocre players from those with legit skill sets.

12:28
Eno Sarris: Ah! Interesting!

12:28
Comment From Rated Rookie
Has Polanco’s start given you any reason to adjust expectations for him in 2014? Career?

12:29
Eno Sarris: The homer was nice, but best is that he’s got a better-than-average swinging strike rate, so I believe he can <15% K rate, so his batting average should be good. I always hold my breath when a prospect comes up, waiting to see how much contact they can make.

12:29
Comment From Biggus Dikus
Is Brock Holt 12 team dynasty relevant?

12:30
Eno Sarris: Well, Biggus, I think that he’s a .270 guy with little power or speed once the BABIP drops down, so no.

12:30
Eno Sarris: Also, they gonna kill that striker for missing that ball, I bet.

12:30
Comment From skipperxc
Brock Holt or Crisp?

12:30
Eno Sarris: Crisp like a million times crispy.

12:30
Comment From Maxamuz
The Legend of Brock Holt

12:30
Eno Sarris: The Legend of Aaron Small.

Comment From Migs
Left Hand’s Sawtoothe Ale Nitro…yes?

12:30
Eno Sarris: Love the brewer, haven’t had the beer.

12:31
Comment From Art Vandelay
Do the Tigers have pieces to make a move for someone like Betances? Seems like a match made in heaven.

12:31
Eno Sarris: Not sure there’s a team match there. Yanks don’t have a closer under contract next year.

12:31
Comment From Mookie Betts
Keeper league catcher: Norris or Ramos?

12:31
Eno Sarris: NORRIS

12:31
Comment From chris
Arrieta or Colon?

12:31
Eno Sarris: Arrieta

12:31
Comment From Capn America
What’s the deal with the Mets and Dan Murphy?? I’m not hearing anything about an extension, are you? If no extension, then don’t they really have to deal him now? The stars are aligning…contending teams needing 2B upgrades (Giants, Jays, A’s) and Murphy having another strong year with the stick…

12:32
Eno Sarris: yeah they talking about trading Murphy in the press and asking the GM, it’s going to happen IMO. And better do it now than too late (Ike) or never (Reyes).

12:32
Comment From yukyuks
Will Danny Duffy dominate 2day?

12:32
Eno Sarris: Very nervous about him. Traded away my only share. Not a great K-BB and his pitch type peripherals are terrible across the board.

12:33
Comment From Yo fava
A sad fact, yo mama smokes crack. She got a burnin yearnin and there’s no turnin back.

Comment From juan pierres mustache
sawtooth ale nitro no, just tastes like flat beer. wake up dead nitro is a strong yes, however

12:33
Comment From john
For what its worth (and he is a snake oil salesman so i dont believe it) Sandy A told a group of season ticket holders before the last homestand that he is absolutely not trading Daniel Murphy bc they need guys who can play and hit in new york and he is one of them

12:34
Eno Sarris: For what it’s worth, all GMs are snake oil salesmen and you should never believe what they say.

12:34
Comment From John Axford
I can haz job back?

12:34
Eno Sarris: They keep talking about it, but Allen’s good.

12:34

i might be late… BUT I MADE IT!

12:34
Eno Sarris: Violin music. LOOKS LIKE WE MADE IT

12:34
Comment From Adrian
Seems like fantasy analysts always have a flavor of the week, Arrieta or McCarthy ROS?

12:35
Eno Sarris: My flavor of the week brings all the boys to the yard. I see some declining velocity from McCarthy and no change-up. Those guys could both be high threes, but JA will have more Ks.

12:35
Comment From Ashtray
I’ve got Bailey about to go againt PIT. Am I going to regret it?

12:35
Eno Sarris: nope.

12:35
Comment From Joe
Do you think Everth Cabrera is toast? I am strongly considering dropping him for Chris Owings. I am first in SB, last in BA. Also, considering stashing Betts since I have Solarte to fill in. Thoughts?

12:36
Eno Sarris: You have a better fall back plan than Suarez. You can go for Betts. Cabrera gonna hit .240 with 35 steals or so this year IMO.

12:36
Comment From Ryan
Redraft H2H points…Other members really like trading for pitching. My Kluber and Perkins for his Braun and Minor? Go for it?

12:36
Eno Sarris: yes.

12:36
Comment From Arno
So Soriano is bad, but like at what full-time player do you draw the line? Would you drop him for James Jones/Nava kind of guys? Or are you hoping for a PT rebound?

12:36
Eno Sarris: I’d drop him for Jones. Soriano’s looking like a vLHP platoon bat now.

12:36
Comment From Kluber Time
Thoughts on Kluber the rest of the way? He just a mid rotation regular or do you expect him to continue to excel?

12:37
Eno Sarris: Have loved him for a long time.

12:37
Comment From jim
How do you find SwStr% leaderboards by pitch? I was wondering if there was an easier way to do it than by going through the PITCHf/x data on SQL.

12:37
Eno Sarris: yeah I don’t got it. But I did post a piece on the swinging strike benchmarks for pitch type, so if you just keep 15% in mind for sliders and changeups (11% for curves), you can have a good idea without a leaderboard.

12:37
Comment From Phil
KC is hitting now that the fired their hitting coach? Why do teams wait 2 months into the season to realize their hitting coach is bad?

12:39
Eno Sarris: Hitting coaches matter only when it comes to being patient or aggressive, IMO. The Royals’ problem is that they all hit too many GBs except Moustakas who his everything straight up. Seitzer fixed that for Gordon, so I guess a hitting coach could do it, but Butler/Hoz/Mous aren’t going to go to great lengths to change their approach IMO.

12:39
Comment From the weas
poopie or poopy?

12:39
Eno Sarris: Gotta go IE because you’re already not saying the bad word.

Comment From Guest
What was the Nats clubhouse like?

12:40
Eno Sarris: Up-beat, friendly, but not as calm as some more veteran clubhouses I’ve been in. Could work in their favor.

12:40
Comment From Peeka Choo
Do I need to upgrade in an AL only with a staff of Kluber, Quintana, Keuchel, Lackey, Whitley, and Peacock/Sabathia?

12:40
Eno Sarris: Love that staff, although Peacock is droppable to me.

Comment From Mike
Is this the real Matt Cain now? What happened to him?

12:42
Eno Sarris: He’s kind of a kitchen sink guy. Here’s something people might not know about him: not one of his pitches grades above average on swSTR. Only his change is a great GB pitch. But he has representative pitches and can mix them up with great command. In the past. Command shaky now. So… I’m worried. Have one share and would sell.

12:42
Comment From frozen rope
How good is Jimmy Nelson? Will he be in the Brewer’s rotation anytime soon?

12:42
Eno Sarris: Might only be a two-pitch guy (slider), so unsure.

12:43
Comment From Cota
I know it’s a small sample, but do you see Montero etching out a full-time role and bumping out Smoak or someone else?

12:43
Eno Sarris: The new acquisitions have been unremarkable and Montero did etch out some improvements… not impossible. Smoak could platoon with someone.

12:43
Comment From Joe
Follow-up on Betts: Do you think BA translates to MLB? What is his steals pace?

12:44
Eno Sarris: Yes, his contact rate is so good he could double his strikeout rate and still have a 15% strikeout rate. With a 10% walk rate. And maybe 30 steals a year? Power is the question. 10? 15?

12:44
Comment From Milwaukee Beerjays
Dropped Rosrio for Gattis….cool/uncool?

12:44
Eno Sarris: They so similar, and Gattis going better, cool.

12:44
Comment From Justin Verlander
Do you agree with what was said? That’s I’m “fixable”? or is it all Kate Upton’s fault?

12:45
Eno Sarris: The velocity ticked up for three games and then dropped away. i’m not buying low. I’ll keep my one share, though, because the offers were crap.

12:45
Comment From PS
i just made it and now i have to go. crap. answer this before i go(plzz): for like the rest of his career, whats your opinion on Workman

12:45
Eno Sarris: Meh.

12:45
Eno Sarris: Good fastball, but no other pitch is great. The curve is good. Still needs one more, IMO.

12:46

Eno Sarris: Would have to look at his surplus value, but guesstimating he could return a top-30 prospect.

12:47
Eno Sarris: Wut. You have to drop one of those guys? Wow. Uh. Hmmm. Yeah. Uh. K-Rod? worst velocity, team could regress the hardest.

12:47
Comment From Matt
Sorry but I’m gonna keep asking because I really want an answer! Drop Rosario for Norris?

12:48
Eno Sarris: Didn’t I already answer this? Oh I said no on McCann. Well, this one… sure. I think this is okay. Both righties, Norris has way better plate discipline and is showing better now.

12:48

Had Old Chub Nitro a couple days ago, pretty great. Oskar Blues is delicious.

Is Santana a good buy low guy for leagues with no batting avg?

12:49
Comment From Left Hand Milk
I’m trying to deal one of my CI guys… who’s the best guy to sell: Dunn, Lawrie, Longoria, or Lind?

12:50
Eno Sarris: You know, Longo will bring you back the most, and unsure if Lind/Lawrie don’t do about the same as him, maybe a little worse.

12:50
Comment From Pittsburgh Pride
Do you think Alcantara gets a shot at 2B this year? I can’t imagine Barney will block him much longer. Thanks!

12:50
Eno Sarris: Barney is available. And I disagree with him, I think he has value to a team that wants help at 2B but doesn’t want to spend a ton.

12:50
Comment From Capn America
yeah but Alderson is particularly slithery. and btw, my preference is to extend Murphy bc it’s true that he’s one of the few that can hit at Citifield… but they don’t seem to want to extend him either… not extending him *and* not trading him is the worst of all options. More crazy fails from that all-star FO that is getting paid more than the entire bullpen….

12:51
Eno Sarris: Got no problems with that bullpen. Love some of those arms. Germen has the best changeup in baseball by swinging strikes. Familia can be a wild setup man. Mejia is going to be a good closer. All cheap. Edgin and Rice are fine. One more of the starters will fail and be a bullpen guy and it’ll be a strength soon.

12:51
Comment From Jon
I had high hopes for Arcia this season, but he’s not doing much. Is he droppable for someone like Victorino when he comes off the DL?

12:52
Eno Sarris: One-tool guy in a park that doesn’t love his one tool. (Dirty) I think he’s droppable yes.

12:52
Comment From Chris
a “proven” Danny Salazar worth stashing over prospects like Bradley, Meyers, Bundy, Jimmy Nelson? Had a decent outing last Sunday.

12:53
Eno Sarris: I’ll take Danny over those guys yes. All have innings questions, most have talent questions even.

12:53
Comment From Giant Slayer
Tim Hudson. Ooof. No Ks, 12 hits, 2 HRs. Is this the correction or a sign of things to come?

12:53
Eno Sarris: AL park, AL lineup, not a great fit for a guy that ended our interview saying he’ll throw the rosin bag at the plate if he has to.

12:53
Comment From Pittsburgh Pride
When a hitter/pitcher is beating his projections, what stats do you look at to judge if the improvement will stick? Thanks

12:54
Eno Sarris: Pitcher: pitch type peripherals (swinging strike and GB) because there are more pitches than plate appearances. HItter: K%, BB%, GB/FB changes. These things stabilize quicker.

12:54
Comment From Joe
Carlos Carrasco has been REALLY good of late. Role ROS?

12:55
Eno Sarris: Yeah but so many pitches for a reliever! Maybe he’ll Soria eventually, but he has more velocity. If i was an NL team, I’d trade for him.

12:55
Comment From ShaneB
Please resolve a long standing question between my friends and I – How do you as an expert compare a single pitcher against a single batter??

12:56
Eno Sarris: Compare them in my mind against my particular league’s waiver wire and then adjust the pitcher downward because almost every league treats them that way.

12:56
Comment From Matt
3 weeks ago Gausman-sentiments were very negative because of his stuff, now 3 good starts in it is completely different. Did anything change? Just locating well now?

12:56
Eno Sarris: yeah better command is all I saw. Slider was still meh.

conspiracy theory out there that the wilpons are tanking the mets on purpose to disenfranchise the fan base so there is no uproar when they move the mets elsewhere, the jist being that willets point will be worth more to them as developments than a stadium

12:57
Eno Sarris: This seems absolutely nuts to me.

12:57
Comment From Joe
Why NL team with Carrasco?

12:57
Eno Sarris: Cause a few games with a pitcher and he’ll rack up the Ks, improve his confidence, and confidence goes hand in hand with command from what pitchers tell me. Think of throwing a pitch in the middle of the strike zone if you’re worried it’ll get rocked.

12:57

Daniel Bard walked or hit 16 of the 18 batters he faced for the Rangers’ Sally League team this year.

Comment From Yankee Doodle Duh
Does Whitley have real keeper potential for ROS? Will he ever go more than 5 innings?!

12:58
Eno Sarris: That’s how they are limiting his innings. Good bullpen in NY though, so he could get some wins.

12:58
Comment From Joe
More on Betts: Does he get 5 starts at 2B? Pedroia is pretty stingy about giving up playing time.

12:58
Eno Sarris: he should come in with 2B eligibility though.

12:58

Soria and DeJesus seem like reasonable trade targets for the Royals and fit needs. Let’s get weird!

Comment From Roger
I need wins and have a staff of Teheran, Kluber, Richards, Stroman, with Derek Holland, Tyler Skaggs, Danny Salazar, Eddie Butler lurking on the DL and in the minors. Should I expect much improvement or make a trade?

1:02
Eno Sarris: I wonder if you could pair Skaggs with Stroman to a rebuilder for a good veteran. Might help. I think this is about Skaggs’ true talent level.

1:03
Comment From Jake
Respectfully, why do you believe so strongly in the SB & AVG # for Cabrera? (Everth) Walk rate is less than half of 2012/2013’s average, K% almost 10 points higher than last year, WRC+ is 60, WOBA is .254, and he’s only been successful on 68% of attempts (7% lower than 2013,24% lower than 2012). Even if he hits your projected ROS pace (close to second half of 2012’s) the other counting stats are unlikely to be there with the lack of bats in OAK right?

1:03
Eno Sarris: Walk rate doesn’t matter to BA. He’s hit .240 with this bad of a K rate before. They still running him out there for now, and he’s still running.

Eno Sarris: Wood over Garcia for me.

1:05
Comment From Reddickulous
What do you mean by “share,” when talking about owning a player? What format is that?

Having a discussion with someone about present vs. projected value. How do I convince him concisely that BABIP has value in discussions of both? Thank you!

1:08
Eno Sarris: Across baseball, without fail, year to year, 30% of balls in play go for hits. Very few push past .350 or .250, so numbers beyond that are outliers that will regress to the league mean?

1:08
Comment From Larry David
My house was literally hit by a tornado 2 days ago. What’s your opinion on Kemp now? Hold? Sell? Wait another week and sell higher?

1:09
Eno Sarris: Damn dude. Sorry to hear. Kemp’s looked better and his team could play him, maybe they push Crawford to the bench. The problem is that Kemp is not great v RHP and they have tons of lefties…. I’m holding.

Comment From adENOtriphosphate
What’s the one-sentence difference between a four-seamer and two-seamer… other than the number of seams involved?

1:10
Eno Sarris: The two-seamer has more arm-side run than the four-seamer and is usually a little slower, which leads to more grounders.

1:10

Suarez for real? Shallow league: him/rollings/alcideez escobar/ Dan-San for ROS?

Comment From Reginald Denton III
Are you down on Stroman because of his Yankee Stadium start or were you already down him before that? He didn’t pitch badly, just a lot of pitches that limited how deep he could go.

1:10
Eno Sarris: I like Stroman. I just think the homers thing is an actual problem right now, and there are a lot of homer-happy parks in his schedule.

1:11
Comment From Joe
Brandon Crawford seems to be having a mini-breakout. Do you agree or just a good/lucky first half?

1:11
Eno Sarris: He’s done this before. I doubt it’s a breakout.

1:11
Comment From chris
Dickerson didn’t hit all that much on his recent roadtrip. Is he going to be a splits kind of guy ROS?

1:12
Eno Sarris: Yeah sucks that some of his best minor league numbers also came at altitude. He’s a bench outfielder because he doesn’t play v LHP. interview with him and Blackmon coming tomorrow.

1:12
Comment From what the???
You told that guy to drop Jaime Garca over hutchison (who is falling apart), Smyly (who hasn’t proven he’s a real starter) and Pomeranz (who is hurt)… what the?? Am I missing something?

1:13
Eno Sarris: I love having a guy like Pomeranz on my DL, and even though he’s a two-pitch guy, it’s a curve (platoon neutral) and he pitches in Oakland. Smyly has proven himself to me. 29 career starts. Hutchison, yes, that was the name that I stuck at. I like his peripherals, but unsure about the command.

1:13
Comment From BG
Eno, I am on a surf trip in Nicaragua and baseball is very popular down here, more so than soccer even. The beers all seem terrible though, know anything that might help?

I have 5 not so very good “closers” and usually keep only 4….who gets the boot? Reed, Rondon, britton, qualls McGee?

Now come on, in fairness, our real beef with Juliana Z’s music should be the writing and production. Admittedly, that could be her, too, but just vocally, she doesn’t present any major issues.

Wouldnt trading Kemp and eating 40 mill and calling Joc be roughly the equivalent of paying Joc 40 mill is that good?

Does BABIP have any value in evaluating a minor league hitter?

1:22

Gattis for Norris, Cody Allen and Bradley in a keep-forever, one-catcher, OBP league a fair swap. I need saves; the other guy needs a catcher (he has Wieters).

1:25

1:25

You mentioned Baez flaming out a bit ago. How concerned are you about his big league prospects? Would you trade Rios/Choo for him in a dynasty league (assuming you’re out of contention this season)

1:27
Eno Sarris: No. I’m not buying.

1:27
Eno Sarris: Didn’t see a ton of him this spring, but combined with what I see on his stat page, I’m cold.

1:28
Comment From Dr. Met
Optimistic at all about AJ Burnett? Last few turns have been much better but overall it looks like his K’s are gone for good which makes him borderline streamerbait

1:28
Eno Sarris: Not that optimistic because the swSTR is gone, and he’s pitching through injury.

1:28
Comment From ShaneB
What makes Baez a bust? Maybe just taking a little longer.

1:29
Eno Sarris: His entire minor league history of Ks and BBs puts him in a strong bust category. If it works out, it’ll be great. But he’s over 50% bust territory like that. Google Chris St. John and what do minor league strikeout and walk rates tell us.

1:29
Comment From Beaucoup Bucks
If Cishek enters free agency next year, is he a closer for another team, or just a bullpen arm?

1:29
Eno Sarris: The velocity loss will concern the contenders. Teams that gather arms and hope for closers, like Milwaukee, might jump if the price drops.

1:29
Comment From Joe
#14=Price. Buster Olney said on podcast, not a joke. If Pederson or any other advanced AAA prospect gets traded, do they need to stay down in AAA with new team for ROS?

Bryan Morris is another guy who’s value DC slammed when the Fish had the temerity to deal a comp value pick for him… but I get that the tendency is to overvalue prospects by the people who populate this site…

1:33
Eno Sarris: To be fair, and I really like some of what Morris is doing, there’s no great reason to trade for a reliever. Just give up on a starter in the minors and you’ll get a decent reliever for free-ish.

Ugh, just got offered Paco, James Jones, Gary Sanchez and Crick for Skaggs and Wieters. No thank you.
