Joe Blanton? Don't laugh, decent reliever. Bastardo if you need a lefty. Tommy Hunter still out there, I think. Clip show.

For positioning the CF: See Fowler this year with cubs, usually regarded as below average. maddon said they were going position him shallower and voila average def.
mets

so you dont think he sticks at short then? gavin that is
i know gavin had a bunch of errors this year, but i thought they were mostly either rushing throws or making throws on balls he should put in his back pocket

I was talking about the other one.

Hey is Kyle Gibson a keeper at $7 in a 12 team al only roto, 9 keeps - $260 budget?
Eno Sarris
1:21
Yes. Just wrote his player cap. Which, check it: they will be RotoGraphs player caps on 1200 pages... for free this year.

Chances I can schedule a meeting with you at next year's Winter Meetings in DC?
Eno Sarris

The most effective pitches started with "let me buy you a beer" lol

Where do Jay Bruce/Votto/BP/Frazier end up?
Eno Sarris
1:22
BP to Diamondbacks is a chance the Reds should jump on. The rest stay for differnt reasons.

Kelley, Petit, Perez - not quite the sexy bullpen adds, but effective shopping?
Eno Sarris
1:22
I love them actually. Kelley is Gregerson with a little more velocity, Petit has the invisiball and Perez has been a decent LOOGY since he stopped starting.
Drew
1:23
Luhnow said he didn't value velo as much as the rest of the league a few months ago. He played the long game, kinda like how I approached dating in college

What is your "White Whale" beer?
Eno Sarris

I'm about to get it: Tree House Julius. It's in the mail, headed to my house.

Would the Braves/D'Backs trade even fly in fantasy leagues? It's like that guy who always does ridiculous trades to piss people off. Except this time it went through.
Eno Sarris
1:23
Someone ran it through OOTP and the fake Dave Stewart said "Why would I do this trade? No Way."
Art Vandelay

All that Bay Area tech money doesn't go to the A's, it goes to the Giants, that's the whole reason the A's tried to sue their way into San Jose.
Eno Sarris
1:24
Exactly.

Mark Reynolds to Colorado. So much for Trumbo or Crush Davis and their 80 homer seasons...
Eno Sarris
1:24
Could still be fun.

Eno Sarris
1:24
Way better because they finally got a bat!

KING KENTA: Pitch, where you when I was walkin'?
Now I run the game got the whole world talkin', King Kenta
Everybody wanna knock the ball off him, Kenta
Japanese man taking no losses

When you got the ZIPS (What's the ZIPS?)
The ZIPS is the power that be
You can see it when you're lookin' down spreadsheets
(Oh yes we can, oh yes we can)
I can dig pitching, but a pitching with a strike framer?
What the heck happened? (Oh no) I swore I wouldn't tell
But most of y'all fear bats, like you got the bottom bunk in a Tampa Rays hotel
(A Rays hotel)
Something's with the batter (Something's with the batter)
And if I got a nose for some strikeouts then I'd rather be a pitcher than a batflippin' baller

Any validity to the reports the A's are interested in Maeda? Supposedly they've scouted him extensively and are interested in Kazmir, whose price is rising but is the same tier of pitching
Eno Sarris
1:26
Beane mentioned that people scratched their head at trading some guys away one year and then they signed Cespedes and did some other stuff and were good. Maybe the Lawrie deal was to clear up cash for a Maeda type thing. But don't expect the payroll to go over 85-90. He specifically said that every time they've ever spent more than they had, it went terribly and it was a hole they had to dig out from under.

How does one become a baseball scout?
Eno Sarris
1:27
Recently, it seems like you scout for a blog until someone notices your work.
Eddie Brock

Does Maeda's size worry you at all? He's listed lighter than The Freak
Eno Sarris
1:27
A lot of stuff worries me about him. HIs translated stats look like Gallardo's.
beer
1:27
what if the person buying the beer insisted on bud light
Eno Sarris

quick meeting.

Lawrie got sold for a 2016 reliever and a guy Kantrovitz wanted to draft. It's been all but confirmed Lawrie (and Butler, who DIDN'T USE THE WEIGHT ROOM IN 2015) were the clubhouse problems.
Eno Sarris
1:28
Nah. A) I saw Billy in the weight room every time I was in the clubhouse, although mostly on the bike trying to stay slimmer. B) Not everyone loved Lawrie, but he wasn't the problem. If there was a problem, it was that nobody knew each other and the team was bad.
1:29
Lawrie is intense and talks a mile a minute, but he's upbeat and some guys even liked him.
