Eno Sarris Baseball Chat — 8/15/13

11:38
Eno Sarris: Hey! Will be here at top of the hour.
12:00
Eno Sarris: lyrics of the day, just because a little German is involved

She’s been dreaming
Relocation
From monastic
Regulations

Now she’s working
At the station
As a VJ
On rotation

12:01
Comment From bdhudson
eno! fix your chat so the whole transcript is available when it closes. it’s very sad every week when it just stops after a certain point
12:01
Eno Sarris: If you mean by ‘fix’ email Appelman complaining about it… done.
12:01
Comment From Dr. Met
In a dynasty league where you are more than likely going into the playoffs, do you do a Nelson Cruz for Brandon Belt deal?
12:01
Eno Sarris: Yes.

12:01
Comment From Chris
Will cargo play again this seas?
12:02
Eno Sarris: I am not a doctor! He’s working out. I think he might play a bit.
12:02
Comment From FrustratedHypocrite
Hi Eno – please map out how the Pittsburgh Pirates can possibly win the 2013 World Series in 6 steps or less.
12:03
Eno Sarris: 1) AJB and Liriano stay healthy. 2) They find a real-life RF from the group of Snider, Tabata and Lambo. 3) A rando gets hot — Walker, Pedro, Mercer — someone that isn’t in a star but can help power the team through the postseason. NOTE: these things are all very possible.
12:03
Comment From JEB
Just had some bells Oarsman, it was just ok. If I didn’t like it should I stay away from sours/saisons? Have a recommendation for me?
12:04
Eno Sarris: No, that’s a different taste. Oarsman is a wit. Saisons have a more peppery taste. Some saisons are tart, and if you like those, you’ll like sours. I recommend starting with a bretta saison or a Saison Dupont, and that’ll let you know if you want to continue down that path.
12:04
Comment From Chris
Given Coco’s lack of production is there somethin more to his wrist injury? Man i love the Firestone Double jack im glad it only comes in a 4 pack
12:04
Eno Sarris: I don’t think he ‘deserves’ his low BABIP. But he’s getting older, and the injuries will come. Good thing they got Young, I guess. FWDJFTW
12:05
Comment From Evan
How do you approach valuing prospects in dynasty leagues? Prospects can go for a lot in some leagues before they hit the majors, do you generally prefer holding onto them and taking the risk that they gain more value?
12:06
Eno Sarris: For the most part, I trade em. Even top ten prospects have a 50% bust rate, and in fantasy, that’s probably 60+%. And if you read Cwik’s piece about rookies, more often than not, they struggle, which means you have a period in which you can get a prospect back after they’ve hit the majors and struggled. Think Profar. Now’s a great time to get him in a dynasty league, particularly since Andrus cleared waivers and it looks like the Rangers would be willing to trade him.
12:06
Comment From Alex
Do you expect Alcedes Escobar to bounce back next year? I remember earlier in the year, we talked about how he was a better valued Andrus. That potential still there to stash?
12:07
Eno Sarris: I think my comment about Alcides was more a denigration of Andrus from the fantasy perspective. Both are .270 type hitters with no power and good speed. Neither is a great keeper in shallower leagues, both are above replacement.
12:07
Comment From Crusty
I’m in an AL only league that uses QS’s. Garza is killing me by giving up 4 ER’s seemingly every game, since he came over to the American League. Hold or drop?
12:07
Eno Sarris: Well in an AL-only league you gotta keep. But this was kinda forseeable.
12:07
Comment From JEB
Who has more upside as a keeper, Yadi or Rizzo?
12:07
Eno Sarris: Yadi doesn’t have more upside, but he’s a better keeper because of his position, probably.
12:07
Comment From Guest
What kind of production do you project for A Rod ROS?
12:07
Eno Sarris: .260/20/2 type pace.
12:07
Comment From STiVo
Should I start Sonny Gray vs. Houston tonight?
12:08
Eno Sarris: I like him. He’s home, has 94 mph fastball, can put curve where he wants.
12:08
Comment From Bigus Dickus
Bourn or Crisp ros?
12:08
Eno Sarris: Bourn
12:08
Comment From Blurnsball
What are you expecting out of Cobb today?
12:08
Eno Sarris: A great start. I don’t think the concussion harmed his arm.
12:08
Comment From Oo
If you, Eno, were the next baseball prodigy at the age of 16 in the USA, would you consider moving to Japan/Caribbean and sign as an international free agent instead of waiting for the USA draft?
12:08
Eno Sarris: Yes. Except schooling was always number one in my family.
12:09
Comment From Alex
Yelich and Fowler for Starlin Castro (15 keepers)?
12:09
Eno Sarris: Teams and OFs might be more important to know. 3OF 12-team, I’ll take the SS.
12:09
Comment From Titty
Twist me
12:09
Comment From Oo
Eno, your name spelled backwards in One. Which is Juan in Spanish. Are you actually Juan Uribe?
12:09
Comment From zl5xez
in Efik, a language spoken in Nigeria, ‘eno’ translates to ‘gift’. So there’s that.
12:10
Eno Sarris: Hey that’s pretty well done for an early interlude.
12:10
Comment From Big John stud
Rank ROS please: cole, doubront, beachy, gallardo
12:10
Eno Sarris: Cole, Beachy, Doubront, Gallardo.
12:10
Comment From Bombo
Time to drop Colon in a 12-team mixer? Roster spots are precious, and I don’t feel good about starting him next time out.
12:10
Eno Sarris: Yeah his velocity bombed and he was on the clock anyway.
12:11
Comment From The Oriole Bird
Better chance at making it into the wild card: Orioles or Indians?
12:12
Eno Sarris: Our projections page http://www.fangraphs.com/depthcharts.aspx?position=Standings has them finishing with the exact same record… both good but flawed teams. Maybe the Orioles. I wish I trusted one team’s top-end starters more.
12:12
Comment From Jim Bob Duggar
Which is a better indication of true talent of a starting pitcher (assuming a large enough sample): ERA or WHIP?
12:12
Eno Sarris: WHIP I think. Pitchers and catchers have been agreeing with me. ERA has the problem that ground-ball pitchers give up runs but not earned runs. Point is to keep baserunners off the basepaths.
12:12
Comment From Meano Eno
Is it strange that no one claimed Andrus?
12:13
Eno Sarris: I think so. Great defense at a premium position with a good enough bat is worth that contract IMO.
12:13
Comment From Joey Votto
Did you see my infield pop-up? Gah!
12:13
Eno Sarris: I wonder if FanGraphs appeared in his thoughts at all when that happened.
12:13
Comment From Woody Barrelson
Pick two to keep for next year: Rosario $3, Machado $12, Gyorko $1, AJax $1, Wil Myers $2, Everth Cabrera $3.
12:14
Eno Sarris: Rosario and Myers? I love their prices and Rosario plays an important position. E-Cab might be more .250 next year, AJax is over-rated, Gyorko and Machado are next in line.
12:14
Comment From Daft Punk
We’re reading your chat to get lucky
12:15
Comment From Marty
BOOM BOOM BOOM! Let me hear you say Eno. ENOOOO!
12:15
Comment From dude
I love Miguel Cabrera. Just sayin’.
12:15
Eno Sarris: feel the love lude
12:15
Comment From Keeper? I hardly know her
Is Cain for Freeman overpaying in a dynasty league?
12:15
Eno Sarris: Both good for their position, but not elite.
12:15
Comment From Marty
David Wright over / under 30 games ROS…
12:16
Eno Sarris: Under. Heard them talking about he’s done for sason.
12:16
Comment From Keeper? I hardly know her
Why does a player’s xFIP seem to be at odds with their projected FIPs from Zips or Steamer? Often they seem to be going in opposite directions.
12:16
Eno Sarris: xFIP assumes pitchers have no control over HR/FB rates, and I’m not sure that’s the case. Steamer and ziPs don’t think so either, it seems.
12:16
Comment From Ceetar
If you had to define a Beer “season” between Summer and Fall to push back Oktoberfest/Pumpkin releases, what type of beer would you like to see it made up of?
12:16
Comment From Dave
Are you a fan of German beers? Just had Weihenstephan Vitus and it was fantastic.
12:17
Eno Sarris: Asked and answered. How about a late-summer Wit season?
12:17
Comment From Rocket Roger
Will Gregorius be a better hitter (eventually) than Simmons?
12:17
Eno Sarris: Definitely more upside. Not a bad defender either.
12:17
Comment From Pat
10 team H2H, 5×5 with 3 keepers. I have Trout and Harvey locked in to keep right now. Who would keep with the 3rd; Fielder, Kipnis, Machado, Scherzer or Strasburg?
12:17
Eno Sarris: I hate keeping pitchers in keep-threes. I’d go Kipnis because I love him and because second base.
12:17
Comment From Horn Tooter
I finished college, picked up a Cigar City/Mikkeller Choclate Cherry Stout, and got a short schedule pickup HR from Garrett Jones. What a day!
12:17
Comment From Guest
From 1941-42, Ted Williams contributed 22.6 WAR to the Boston Red Sox. Then, Ted Williams took 3 seasons off to fight for the United States in World War II. Returning from WWII, Ted Williams contributed 22.3 WAR to the Sox for the 1946-47 seasons. How much WAR did Ted Williams contribute to the Allied War Efforts?
12:18
Comment From jesse
I like Beer, and the title eno sarris BASEBALL chat is misleading.
12:18
Eno Sarris: “I was going to just write Eno Sarris Chat but Cover It Live promotes this so I should at least give baseball a shoutout” interlude
12:18
Comment From Antoine
Do you like Estrada ROS? Should I drop Capuano or Erasmo for him?
12:18
Eno Sarris: I’d drop Cappy for him yes I would
12:18
Comment From Dave
Looking more in depth at Pedro Alvarez, he doesn’t do a lot of damage against changeups, but he does draw a decent amount of walks against them. With such a terrible OBP, Pedro isn’t a very good fastball hitter either, is he?
12:19
Eno Sarris: Wrote about this exact thing at Getting Blanked today. I think he’s just a swing and miss guy and any look at results on singular pitches will get a lot of whiffs and HRs. Half of the changeups he’s put in play have been homers!!
12:19
Comment From Maxamuz

This is how I feel when talking to stupid people about baseball.

12:20
Eno Sarris: Maxamuz, mostly disturbing as usual.
12:20
Comment From Elliot
Has Ivan Nova entered the Circle of Trust?
12:20
Eno Sarris: I actually like his new approach/mix. He’s pretty close if not there.
12:20
Comment From Woody Barrelson
Frieri gets his job back, De Le Rosa closes for the rest of the year, or Angels never win another game?
12:20
Eno Sarris: De La Rosa RoS. Frieri always gives up homers and walks, and I think that matters to Scioscia.
12:20
Comment From white boy
devendra! would you go with moose or arenado ros in case wright cant come back?
12:21
Eno Sarris: You got the lyrics! I think Arenado. Moose is hurt too.
12:21
Comment From Miller Time
Brad Miller looks awesome. Should I trust full time duties to him in my 12 man h2h and trade pedroia or Zobrist for help elsewhere? (probably pitching)
12:21
Eno Sarris: I like Miller. I think he can Zobrist, at least in fantasy terms.
12:21
Comment From The Oriole Bird
When in a biergarten in Germany, would you prefer a helles or weis? Something else? (Rauchbier?!)
12:21
Eno Sarris: Schwarzbier.
12:21
Comment From Dave
Michael Brantley or Reddick ROS?
12:22
Eno Sarris: tough one. Vanilla or Creme Brulee ice cream. Vanilla will be there for you no matter what. But Creme Brulee could blow your mind.
12:22
Eno Sarris: If you need power, and need upside, go creme brulee.
12:22
Comment From STiVo
Do you use LD% for anything? If so, what?
12:22
Eno Sarris: Hmm. Not really. I give it an eye if a guy has done it for three years straight.
12:22
Comment From jesse
have you formed a favorite nickname for Andrew Lambo yey?
12:22
Eno Sarris: The Leap?
12:23
Comment From Bill
Better SS stash for September – Jeter, Profar, or Bogaerts?
12:23
Eno Sarris: Profar
12:23
Comment From =
ENO if YOU were the starting SS on the MLB team for all 162 games, 9 innings per game, what would be you WAR total?
12:23
Eno Sarris: -10
12:23
Eno Sarris: actually, probably legendary. -15
12:23
Comment From Dr. Met
So managers will be able to throw a challenge flag and challenge ANYTHING 3 times a game? oh boy
12:23
Eno Sarris: At least it’s only three times? Seems like a bad idea.
12:23
Comment From ian
supposing ludwick isn’t entirely awful, frazier rebounds a little, cueto comes back and is cueto, and dusty stops doing dumb things at every opportunity, do you think the reds can a) win the division and b)make a run in the post season?
12:24
Eno Sarris: a) no b) maybe
12:24
Comment From Mark
Dave Cameron: Sensible or party pooper for not wanting to dream on Abreu based on his Cuban production / MLE.
12:25
Eno Sarris: Actually, maybe party pooper. I still like Davenport’s MLE for Cespedes as his true talent level (something like .265/.330 with power and speed). Abreu was the best hitter in Cuba. Of course, he’s also a stick figure first baseman type.
12:25
Comment From dude
Did you know, according to Pitch F/X, Justin Verlander leads all qualified starters in changeups thrown. 30%.
12:25
Eno Sarris: For him, that’s probably not good news. The fastball is down a bit.
12:25
Comment From Eddie
Anthony Rizzo’s ISO is higher than last year, but his SLG% is lower. What is the difference there?
12:25
Eno Sarris: Batting average. And I think it’s mostly BABIP. Which is why I still like him.
12:26
Comment From Sean
Can M. Sano be a 40 homer threat without being a threat to my AVG??
12:26
Eno Sarris: Stanton says it’s possible, but I think it’s not probable.
12:26
Comment From Ruddiger
Could you rank these pitchers for next season? Cole, S Miller, D Salazar?
12:26
Eno Sarris: Miller, Cole, Salazar. Love Salazar’s stuff, but the pedigree matters some.
12:26
Comment From jlr
Why isn’t George Springer in the majors yet? Ya he strikes out a lot, but so does Cargo..not really anything to prove after 32/38 in a season
12:27
Eno Sarris: He strikes out way more than CarGo. He strikes out Sano style. He strikes out so much it’s no guarantee that he’ll make it in the bigs.
12:27
Comment From Pat
Samardjiza or Salazar ROS?
12:27
Eno Sarris: The Shark. Samardzija will start. Salazar already blown by his career high in IP.
12:27
Comment From Bart
Brandon McCarthy or Ogando ROS?
12:27
Eno Sarris: McCarthy.
12:28
Comment From Shane Spencer
Settle something for me: my friend in second picked up Ryan Braun off waivers when he was dropped in a 12-team mixed keeper league with a short bench. I’m floundering in tenth and offered him Chris Johnson or BJ Upton in exchange but my friend turned it down — he wants Longoria. Who has the leverage here? Braun’s better, but Longoria is active now and has the position advantage.
12:28
Eno Sarris: Given the risk in Braun, I’d rather have Longoria. And since he’s in second, he needs the active player. You have the leverage, and it’s not clear you need to do this deal.
12:28
Comment From Internet User Since 1995
Did you see the PAfail that led to Putz throwing the ball directly into the ground? Hilarious. http://wapc.mlb.com/play/?content_id=29604209
12:28
Comment From Maxamuz

And now I bring you a break dancing bear-lude

12:29
Comment From Maxamuz

Do you have this at your house?

12:29
Eno Sarris: Yes.
12:29
Comment From Celery Man
trade Kipnis and Sandoval for Machado and Choo?
12:29
Eno Sarris: No
12:29
Comment From Dave
What do you think about Archer ROS?
12:30
Eno Sarris: Still worried about that changeup! Platoon splits are a biotch.
12:30
Comment From Ruf Rider
Do you think Darin Ruf is legit? What can he do ROS?
12:30
Eno Sarris: No. I don’t. He had below average power when he was the same age as everyone in his league. In Double-A, he was two years older than everyone.
12:30
Comment From Eddie
Like beer in a can?
12:30
Eno Sarris: Yes but I pour it into a glass. Cans keep the light out and the carbonation in, which is perfect.
12:30
Comment From guy
do you like the new yahoo player pages?
12:31
Eno Sarris: No.
12:31
Comment From Marty
Is this where Iwakuma’s innings get ugly?
12:31
Eno Sarris: He has some innings risk. Look at his Japanese IP totals. He’s not the healthiest dude.
12:31
Comment From Gila Monster
In regarding your interview with Samardjiza; Is his and possibly Ryan Dempster struggles are due to the use of the splitter and inconsistent control of other pitches? When they can’t locate the Fastball or Slider, they fall behind in counts and can’t use the splitter, losing their best out pitch? Contrasting a Kuroda, who’s control has been very good and has a result, has been very effective.
12:32
Eno Sarris: Yes. Control is tantamount for a splitter guy. Because they can’t really throw the splitter for strikes. Look at Mujica’s success. Throws the splitter more than anyone, but has elite elite control. I like the splitter, but I do want it to come with a guy with great control.
12:32
Comment From zack
Should I try and sell high on jhoulys chaxin?His hr prevention can’t go on can it?
12:32
Eno Sarris: I would. Plus, he doesn’t K.
12:32
Comment From Dr. Met
Gausman coming back up in Sept as high leverage reliever or starter?
12:32
Eno Sarris: Reliever. But I like him next year.
12:32
Comment From Dave Camerons Puppy
Just like Beergraphs, I’ve been reading ‘The Audacity of Hops’. Had no idea that basically no good beers were available before I was born. Also went to my local bar last night and they had Anchol Steam as a special! (on East Coast)
12:33
Eno Sarris: Yeah it’s funny I went to college right while the first beer bubble was bursting, and I thought Anchor and Sierra were great, new beers, but I didn’t like some of the other stuff I tried like Pete’s Wicked and so on. So I went to scotch and craft cocktails in London and NYC for a bit. But I’m glad I’m back.
12:33
Comment From bucs_lose_again
Left-Hand Milk Stout Nitro in the fridge for the Bucs afternoon game! Great Successes!
12:33
Eno Sarris: yesssss
12:33
Comment From Kris
Archer worth keeping or just a streamer guy?
12:34
Eno Sarris: Right on the line. I’d stream.
12:34
Comment From NapolisDeadHips
Napoli’s dead hips are killing me, why isn’t Giancarlo hitting bombs?
12:34
Eno Sarris: Giancarlo’s batted ball distance is fine. He’s going oppo a bit more, but I think he’ll be good.
12:34
Comment From Teddy
between cingrani and fister, who should i consider trading to upgrade my staff,
12:34
Eno Sarris: Cingrani still almost a one-pitch pitcher.
12:34
Comment From Dr. Met
Andrus was on revocable waivers, so maybe the GM’s all understood he was going to get pulled back anyway?
12:35
Eno Sarris: Yes, this must factor in. PR of claiming, not getting factors in.
12:35
Comment From Mark
Stanton has been less than stellar this year. How does the prospect of him moving to Boston or Texas with their friendly parks affect his value in a keep 3 league?
12:35
Eno Sarris: He’s still a keep-three keeper for me, if more of a third-rounder with risk.
12:35
Comment From Dave Camerons Puppy
Boulevard the most underrated brewery? Beer snobs know, but man they’re unbelievable.
12:35
Eno Sarris: I’ve really been getting into them. Tank 7 and their IPA are great baseline beers, Love Child (with Sierra) is awesome, and Saison Bretta is elite.
12:36
Comment From The Oriole Bird
Vandy grads in MLB: Price, Minor, Gray, Alvarez. Take that, Stanford.
12:37
Eno Sarris: Quentin, Fuld, Jason Castro, soon to be Mark Appel. Not quite the same, but not super shabby. ASU has em all beat in sheer nubmers I think. Plus, Tuffy Gosewich.
12:37
Comment From zl5xez
I’m starting something called a Tyson Ross today. What’s his deal? His player page must have had something that looked good to me.
12:37
Eno Sarris: Not sure he has the arsenal to succeed as a pitcher, but he’s a fine streamer at home.
12:37
Comment From =
I have idea to boost the popularity of baseball in America. Start a TV show with A-Rod, Puig, Votto and Greinke living in the same house during the winter. Selig as the host.
12:37
Comment From Reigh
Who is more likely to evolve into a hitting force, Gyorko or Rendon?
12:38
Eno Sarris: Gyorko steals bases some so he has more fantasy upside. But there’s something I like better about Rendon, maybe his power upside.
12:38
Comment From =
Redraft, should I trade Harvey for Fielder and Nova?
12:39
Eno Sarris: I traded Miller for Fielder, basically. But Harvey… don’t think so. He’ll miss a start or two at most, otherwise be excellent.
12:39
Comment From Miketron
Will Kole Calhoun still get at-bats when Bourjos comes back?
12:39
Eno Sarris: I like him better than Shuck, but I liked his numbers better than before last night when Sam Miller pointed out that Calhoun was old for his levels and in nice hitter’s parks. Damn context.
12:39
Comment From Guest
What should Hak Ju Lee produce in the majors?
12:40
Eno Sarris: He could be Andrus-like? Maybe? Not sure he has same speed, but he’ll be more d-first, maybe have better BB%.
12:40
Comment From Steve
Eovaldi v SD tomorrow? Streamable?
12:40
Eno Sarris: Yes
12:40
Comment From Lawnmower Rules
Ever try Saint Arnold’s Lawnmower (it’s a Kolsch and brewed in a craft brewery in Houston). It’s my favorite beer, just wondering about it’s footprint in the northern US.
12:40
Eno Sarris: Have not seen it and Kolsches don’t always get wide distro.
12:40
Comment From Eno Montoya
Would a no-closer RP staff work in roto? stock up on Uehara’s?
12:41
Eno Sarris: Uehara is a closer. If you mean start the year with no closers, I’ve tried it some. More of a deep league strategy. This year in AL-LABR I started with Jose Veras, Andrew Bailey, and Joaquin Benoit. Saves are not my problem.
12:41
Comment From Steve
Haren or Martin Perez, ROS?
12:41
Eno Sarris: Take hte upside.
12:41
Comment From Gila Monster
Choo has a 181 wRC+ vs. RHP, better than Mike Trout. He has a 59 wRC+ vs. LHP, essentially Alcides Escobar production. Extreme platoon splits much? Bryce Harper is heading down this dark path too.
12:42
Eno Sarris: Harper’s are not yet believable. Choos’ are.
12:42
Comment From Dr. Met
Ever since his 2 hr day, Franklin has been Ackley 2012, why oh why doth 2b suck?
12:42
Eno Sarris: I believe in Franklin more. Better plate approach, and I htink he can cut the Ks again like he did in minors.
12:42
Comment From harry
Dane de la Rosa, JJ Putz or Chia-Jen Lo ROS? Rank em please.
12:43
Eno Sarris: DDLR… Lo then Putz I guess, since Lo is inthere. But I like Putz.
12:43
Comment From Dr. Met
lol I’m sure the yinzers would LOVE associating their RF with GB
12:43
Eno Sarris: Oooh. yeah. Uh. Huh. Limbo Lambo? WE can do better.
12:43
Comment From Thomas
So you’re saying if we replaced andrelton simmons with you, you would be the starting SS on a MLB division leading team?
12:44
Eno Sarris: I said I would up up NEGATIVE 15 WAR.
12:44
Comment From GooseIsland
What stats do you look at to find hitter pickups?
12:45
Eno Sarris: BABIP. If low, check GB/FB. If close to one, and he has power and some speed, easy buy low. Will also look at batted ball distance at baseballheatmaps to check power losses. ISO doesn’t become reliable until late in season.
12:45
Comment From mikey
can you think of a player who’s got a plate discipline profile like Starlin Castro that eventually turned it around.Need a little hope here
12:45
Eno Sarris: Chris Davis’ PD was worse.
12:45
Comment From Maxamuz
Will Trout at his peak, be better than Miggy at his peak?
12:46
Eno Sarris: His K% says probably not. The genius of Miggy from my perspective is the plate coverage plus the power.
12:46
Comment From TB
Who is Brian Dozier? Should I care about him, (from a fantasy baseball standpoint)?
12:46
Eno Sarris: He was supposed to be better than he was, and now he’s about what he could be. His BABIP is a perplexer to me. Will it always be low? If not, he could be a top-12 MI.
12:47
Comment From Malone
Holding out any hope for Corey Kluber this season? Seems like he is healing quickly.
12:47
Eno Sarris: I think he could pitch over the last two-to-three weeks!
12:47
Comment From STiVo
K-Rod to pick up save opportunities in Baltimore? Jim Johnson = what have you done for me lately?
12:47
Eno Sarris: JJ survived worse earlier in the season. If he blows another, we can start talking.
12:47
Comment From PaulM
Still in first place: Tulo, Kemp, and Wright were my top dollar picks. Holding on for dear life…
12:47
Eno Sarris: It’s not all about the draft!
12:47
Comment From indyralph
ottoneu pts: What is your max price for keeping Hosmer? What price are you excited about him?
12:48
Eno Sarris: In points, where his steals aren’t a big deal and his lack of power is important, I really wouldn’t want to go much past $15. I’d be excited about him in single digits I guess.

Comment From Maxamuz
As a Red Sox fan, I wanted Rizzo to be good even though he’s now on the Cubbies. But, I’m getting tired of waiting for him to explode.
12:49
Eno Sarris: Well I hope he doesn’t explode, that would be messy. I like what I see in his peripherals still. NO reason for a .250 BABIP.

Did I read on this chat recently that the Stone R&R Coconut IPA is pretty nice? Just got a bomber of it last night.

According to Pitch Values, Gee’s changeup has been only okay. Yes I’ve been looking into changeups. What of it?
12:51
Eno Sarris: I love changeups. His changeup is good. Problem is, people can sit on it because his fastball is 88 and his other stuff is meh.

every time someone types “biotch” i think it says “biotech”. I prefer “beyotch”…

I will have to stop swaddling my son at night soon. Help?!

12:52

Should I sit Iwakuma at Texas tomorrow?
12:52
Eno Sarris: Oh. yeah. I think I might. (Remembers to sit him in that league)
12:52
Comment From Maxamuz
I’m still waiting for Mujica to blow up cause he uses his split so often
12:52
Eno Sarris: Me too, but damn. How long we going to wait.
12:52
Comment From Malone
Eno, when trading for the stretch run, do you generally target offensive players or pitchers as rentals? I know it is dependent on your specific holes and who is available but wondered if you had any insight.
12:53
Eno Sarris: If you’re going to get a pitcher, look at the schedule and try to actually project his matchups and make sure he has nice games coming up.
12:53
Comment From Shawn
While it is extremely early on, do the elvis andrus and carl crawford contracts show there is a general overvaluing of speedy, defense first players?
12:53
Eno Sarris: I don’t think so. Crawford was an elite defender in the corner OF, so that’s completely different
12:53
Comment From Rated Rookie
What do expect from Appel when he debuts next season? I’ve recently become infatuated with his scouting reports and want some confirmation that I’m not inappropriately obsessed.
12:54
Eno Sarris: The changeup got better last year at Stanford. So now he’s going to sit 93/94, get Ks with the slurve, and get GBs and stop platoon splits with the change. I like him better now than I did last year, and he’s close. I wish he wasn’t in the AL, but I think he can be a fantasy #2 from the get-go.
12:55
Comment From Dave
If Gregory Polanco comes up and say puts up a .250/.350/350 line, is that better than Lambo/Presley/tabata/snider? Should the Pirates do it?
12:55
Eno Sarris: I think that’s a bit too familiar for that group. Obv he has the upside, but they’re probably doing right thing in calling up the lower-ceiling Lambo and not harming Polanco progression.
12:56
Comment From fats
has there ever been a player to put up back to back 10 WAR seasons and not win an mvp in either?
12:56
Eno Sarris: I would guess no, but I’ll take a look later!
12:56
Comment From Nickles
Should we be any less excited about Profar given his first season?
12:56
Eno Sarris: No, not really. Pretty decent for his age, actually.

Ooooh–what’s your scotch of choice if given a reasonable budge of, say, $65/L?
12:56
Eno Sarris: Laphroig.

Ryan Flaherty and Mike Baxter also went to Vandy
12:57
Eno Sarris: Is that a point in favor or against.
12:57
Comment From Nickles
Wine is so much better than beer. Why are so many people from between the coasts so clueless in this regard?
12:57
Eno Sarris: I can’t really do wine. I love Pinot Noirs and South American Cabs and Cotes du Rhones, but I get heartburn.
12:58
Comment From Jim Bob Duggar
I think I’m a pretty smart guy, but I just don’t get the waivers process. Can someone explain it graphically, plz/thx?
12:58
Eno Sarris: Any traded asset has to go unclaimed by all the teams that have worse records than the two trading partners. Did that help?
12:58

The most important question of the day, what beer will be reviewed next on BeerGraphs?

Metboy, do the Mets make a play for David Price this winter? They would seem to have enough pieces now. If not, is there any other impact piece they can/will target?

How bad is Chris Perez as a pitcher? I keep having this argument over and over with my friend. He just keeps quoting how many saves he has. But that’s like Wins, who cares? His walks and hits are TERRIBLE!
1:04
Eno Sarris: He has had one year where he had above-average anything in the following categories: K%, BB%, GB%.
1:04
Comment From AC
Gyorko or Brad Miller ROS?
1:05
Eno Sarris: Ooh they are right there. If position doesn’t matter… man. Uh. Let me look real quick. cheating. Miller. He’s stealing a bit more.
1:06
Comment From Music For Airports
Are you worried about Doug Fister? He’s gone from a must start to “he’s starting against the White Sox, I’ll start him” to “He just blew up vs. the worst team in the AL”
1:06
Eno Sarris: A little. He has inconsistent release points too.
1:06
Eno Sarris: He has showed up on the injury predictor fwiw.
1:06
Comment From Beer in Hand
Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA or Bell’s Two-Hearted IPA?

I just joined a generic fantasy football league so I can do a draft. I don’t even care for football and know nothing, but I’m going to see if my superior baseball intellect can prove advantageous in the gridiron game.

Brett Lawrie: Is this, roughly, what healthy Brett Lawrie looks like and I should be excited or is the regression hammer looming? Also, where the dingers?

Why doesn’t LASIK receive the negative publicity of PEDs? They are both enhancing the body’s performance beyond what is naturally occuring.

My staff includes Fernandez, Teheran and Miller. How desperate am I going to be for pitching in September. Any of these guys going to be around?
1:15
Eno Sarris: Actually, I looked at Miller and I think he can go 180. That gives him ten starts, and I could only count eight left in the season. I bet he only misses a start or two at most.

So you a believer in Arenado? Why?
1:17
Eno Sarris: Great contact rate, BABIP potential still there. I think he’s a .280/20 guy true talent already. (with a little help from home park). Plus, the comparisons were Moose and A-Rod…

1:17
Eno Sarris: yes
1:17

Is Hosmer doing anything different? My quick look-in says no. Maybe he is just that 280ish, 20 homer guy with some steals. Maybe we should just accept that. I mean, how can he hit more than 20 homers when he has like a 22% flyball rate?
1:17
Eno Sarris: exactly.

I keep an anti-Eno hot dog gun on hand just in case. You’ve been warned.

Theo/Hoyer have done a really good job there… the sort of job I was hoping Alderson would be doing in NY. I actually thing they could get Stanton if they were willing to deal Baez. I see them in on Stanton or Price. And I think they’ll also be active on Ellsbury. M’s or Cubs on Jacoby. Mets won’t be high bidder there.

Yep, the cheeks. Also, grouper (fish) cheeks are very good.

im in a standard 5×5 league that is having a debate about removing the wins category. i suggested using qs instead, but that is getting a lot of backlash since people think it just adds more value to era. the only other suggestion was innings pitched. what do you think?

Eno Sarris: I think QS is marginally better than wins. I don’t like IP. Wins add value to ERA, plus team strength and schedule randomness.
