Chats are like waiting in line to get your question answered but you also get to hear all the other people in front of you get their questions answered and they all have better questions than you so it's fun.

Any idea if Max Kepler can be an above average OF defensively?
Eno Sarris
1:07
I like his athleticism, I would guess yes.

Are pitchers generally safer picks for Rule 5 draft? It seems easy enough that you use the pitcher you draft only for blowouts, where with position players, you kind of need to use them regularly.
Eno Sarris

The only counter argument is utility guys that can offer some defensive value around the field. This is, by the way, also the best way to shop in the non-tender market.

It's National Lager Day. What are some of your favorite lagers??
Eno Sarris
1:09
The hoppy ones, which is cheating.
Pirates Hurdles

I guess what Guest is saying is that we don't know all the info that goes into a team making these decisions, so maybe we should shut up and just watch the games. Our opinions may be more uninformed than we think.
Eno Sarris
1:09
Eh, that's a little less fun. A lot less fun, actually.

Eno, what we (me) have all been waiting for. When does melancon get traded so caminero can at least be the 8th inning guy and start setting up for saves?
Eno Sarris
1:09
I would do it if I were them, and they were rumored to at one point. Maybe they link up with the Dodgers now.

Expected Corey Seager slash line? Steamer has .265/.315/.423

how do i identify which owner is the dave stewart of my fantasy league?
Eno Sarris
1:11
Ask around if anyone thinks Brett Lawrie is worth Josh Donaldson because he was once traded for him.
klof

does gallo get regular PT? or we wait until hamilton gets hurt again? does mazara overtake him?
Eno Sarris
1:11
Mazara is right there. I think we wait until Hamilton is hurt, but a Moreland trade might change things.

what is billy beane's scheme right now? should we stop considering him savvy? and why do we buy into the idea that the A's area small market team with a low budget, especially with all the tech moving into oakland?
Eno Sarris
1:12
Well nobody goes to that park and their season ticket subscriber base is terrible, so there is some poverty there. It's a bad park in a bad area, not sure the tech is helping a ton. But I'll have more on this next week after talking to Beane.

Tell Johnny5Alive that I've used qello before and it's pretty awesome. Nice mix of concerts and a lot of really good bands. Nothing otherworldly, but for the cost, I enjoy it if you like watching concerts on TV.

or its not creative to name sons only 1 letter apart
Eno Sarris
1:13
How about naming them all Rougned.

As a Mets fan what are your thoughts Eno on getting Walker instead of Zobrist? I like it, Walker for a year then hopefully Dilson in 2017, and don't have to pay Zobrist +$10 mil when he's in the latter half of his 30s.
Eno Sarris
1:14
Yeah actually, not mad at that so much. Four years to a 35 yo is a bit of a stretch.
Bork

Are the Yankees just biding their time until the 2018 free agency? It looks insane.
Eno Sarris
1:14
And yet they probably can't get under the lux tax unless they jettison a bigger piece. Saw people talking about how they saved a tidy chunk of change in trading Watson. $1.6m. Are you kidding me?
Johnny5Alive
1:14
Should I, as a glasnow owner in an NL only dynasty, be sad thats he is now blocked by niese?
Eno Sarris
1:15
I would say "blocked" because there's a lot of mediocrity in the back end of that rotation.
Guest
1:15
Have you moved off writing fantasy articles more now that you have player access? Was that conscious or just natural career growth? Just curious, because I enjoy all your stuff.
Eno Sarris
1:16
I find talking to players super compelling, so I guess it was on purpose, but it's very hard to exercise 100% control over your own career. You can want things, and then you have to have a bit of luck for them to happen.

How long until Nashville gets an MLB team?
Eno Sarris
1:16
Hung out with some guys from the Sounds, and they averaging about 8k a game, so I don't think they are there yet. Still, that's gotta be pretty good for Triple-A.
ZM
1:17
Latos to Pirates? buying this rumored reclamation project?
Eno Sarris
1:17
They do this sort of thing, and he has more upside than a Locke or Niese at least.
Johnny

Saw you at the Winter Meetings. Didn't come over and say hi. Very much regret it.
Eno Sarris
1:17
Should of!

Lots of relievers coming off the board, both free agents and via trades. Who is left out there for teams like the Mets to bolster their pen?
