He must be out there somewhere.

Is it safe to say that you are 'all-in' on Rubby next season?
Eno Sarris
12:31
Nah. Iglesias, I'm all in on. Rubby is in that 80-90 range where Chase Anderson was last year. Last mixed league pitcher. Good if cheap. I still believe in the changeup, that should help with the platoon splits. And the harder slider could really work for him.

$16 for a bomber. Ouch. Don't think I've ever topped $10.
Eno Sarris
12:31
I admire your restraint comish4lif.

Can Joey Votto be the first Player/Coach/GM? My dream of the Cincinnati Vottos is becoming closer to reality.
Eno Sarris
12:32
Love it. Like the Brooklyn Dodgers. They were once named after their manager, too.

Have you missed me? Where do you place my value once I come back? Will my dope of a manager finally play me every day, or do I sit for clowns like Jody Mercer again?

votto would rather walk than be traded
Pete R

I wouldn't bet on that Vottos thing, Bork.

Will ANYONE sign Ian Desmond? The Nats (reportedly) offered him over $100M last spring. How much less will he have to settle for?
Eno Sarris
12:35
I looked at the biggest holes on contenders, and by projections, the only SS hole was the Mets with a 1.5 WAR projection on the depth charts, and they just signed a shortstop. At some point the price will drop to the point where someone gives him a chance because he's cheap. He's not the Royal's type, but they need a 2B and if he costs anything like Murphy....
Tom

Could the White Sox make a push for Puig or would that cost too much?
Eno Sarris
12:35
I didn't think they had any prospects worth trading for *before* the last flurry of trades.

The Mets felt like a Cinderalla team. Have they done enough this off-season to give them a serious chance of making it back to the post-season?
Eno Sarris
12:36
No, not yet.
David

Seems like the Indians screwed up on missing on both Frazier and Lawrie, especially given their ultimate price. Right?
Eno Sarris
12:36
At least Frazier.
I guess Lawrie was so cheap, yeah, him too.

Do you feel bad for guys like Votto or stanton signed to long contracts right before team rebuilding, or thats just the downside risk for them signing long contracts
Eno Sarris
12:37
That's life, that's what people say.
JoeStrange

In a redraft league, do you still see McCutchen as a top 3 OF behind only Trout and Harper? I am thinking at some point he will run even less than he has, and it's not like he's hitting 45 HR on the horizon. Any other logical OF you'd take ahead of him?
Eno Sarris
12:39
I don't think he is necessarily. I was looking at Justin Upton against him, and the projections are amazingly close except for batting average. Not saying they that close, but it did open my eyes. Last year, Cutch was 12th in our rankings, and he didn't even have a terrible season. Pollock ahead of him IMO, and Betts pushing up on them.
Nelson
12:39
In or Out on Cashner
Eno Sarris
12:39
Only in if he's a one dollar late gamble, not in at double-digit prices. His secondary pitches are just not as good as I thought, and when he tries to throw it by people, that doesn't work.

There are seemingly too many big hitters left, who is the most likely to take a 1 yr contract and try again next year?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Desmond.

Any idea what is wrong with Iwakuma that the Dodgers changed their mind?
Eno Sarris
12:40
The shoulder was a real problem once in Japan.

Hey Eno, I work for a major financial corporation. How drunk should I get at the xmas party? Drunk enough to make it fun, or just drunk enough to be more chatty?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Definitely less drunk than the drunkest guy.
Mike_C
12:41
If Jason Heyward logs 1000+ innings in Center field this year, what if any effect does that have on his value?
Eno Sarris
12:41
Theoretically, it stays the same. But plus plus corner guys don't always work out in center.
Bork
12:41
Do you feel bad for someone making tens of millions of dollars doing what they love?
Eno Sarris
12:42
Exactly. Except it's kind of like being stuck at a company you don't like, which would suck.
Bork
12:42
Bad answer Eno. You want to be as drunk as the drunkest guy to help him. Everyone loves 2 drunk guys being drunk together. No one likes 1 drunkest guy.
Eno Sarris
