Why'd I eat that third pork chop?

IT'S AN ENO DAY YES IT IS.

I appreciate your energy as I am coming off a long discussion about headless boob bobbleheads that has exhausted me.

Where is upton going to sign?
Eno Sarris
12:01
I suppose he's everyone's backup plan, which is weird because I'd take him over Cespedes.
Brad

Is Adam Conley a legit mixed league guy? Slightly average fastball with above average change and slider it looks like
Eno Sarris
12:02
wait a second. that's impressive. 17% whiffs on the change, 16% whiffs on the slider, 8.7% on the four-seam...
too many homers on the change so far. not a bad sleeper, dude.
Brad
12:03
What do you make of Brandon Mauer having an uber-elite batted ball velocity against of 84.09 mph?
Eno Sarris
12:04
He also had the highest spin rate on the curve and is bringing it back. And is in mix for rotation. But he's burned us so many times, I'll call him a deep league dollar guy at best. Maybe more if it sounds like they pimping him for closer.
Bork

It's a good thing the D'Backs are holding onto that last pick instead of going for it this year. Will really ensure their teams future success instead of going for it this year.
Eno Sarris
12:05
But they could trade that player right away like they have the last two!

Did the third pork chop make you sick or fat or both?
Eno Sarris
12:05
fat and then I couldn't sleep because maybe too much protein
Brad
12:05
How much do you trust John Lamb's per pitch data? Smallish sample size but 15% whiffs on the cutter, 22% whiffs on the change, and 19% whiffs on the curve seems pretty impressive
Eno Sarris
12:06
Actually I really like him. Doesn't have great velocity, but he's in the right league now to hide that fastball, and anyway the fastball has great rise. Give me a piece of Lamb in any league.

Is Piazza's election to the Hall a sign that perhaps the rest of the steroid-clouded players stand a chance?
Eno Sarris
12:08
He literally said, of himself and other players under the cloud, that baseball has made mistakes, people have made mistakes, baseball has healed, and it's time to move on with positivity. What a weird answer! Non-answer. In any case, I do hear more analysts talking about just lumping them all together and calling it the steroid era and acting accordingly, so I do think at least Bonds and Clemens will be in and it will be a super uncomfortable time full of Hot Takery and BS but they should be in.

Because porkchops are extremely underrated (and surprisingly cheap!)
Eno Sarris
12:08
Oh man I love them.

I have been gone to long I feel. This new chat is different.

Would you invest in Marcel Ozuna, Texas Ranger?
Eno Sarris
12:09
Good god yes. He was a top-20 guy in exit velocity, under 25, and has an up the middle approach, cut his k%. I was in on him in Miami, and in SF, and would love love him in Texas.
Brad
12:09
is it crazy to think Billy Hamilton could hit .260 with 70 steals this year?
Eno Sarris
12:10
No. OBP might still be .305 or summat. But the book is not writ on a guy that started switch hitting in the minor leagues. Dex Fowler had fits and starts.
Fred Bird
12:10
Cardinals / Rockies trade still a possibility I suppose, but while everyone knows it's hard to value Rockies ofs, how do you value Matt Adams?
Eno Sarris
12:11
Yeah, I have one share of Adams that I'm staring a hole into. It's in an OBP league and fairly worthless if Moss and Piscotty are going to play 1B some, and I think they will. But if he gets traded to Coors... What do you think the chances are? 10%
Brad
12:12
Is it fair to look for some more batting average out of Anthony Rizzo based on his improving K% and Swinging strikes?
Eno Sarris
12:13
It is, but projections have him regressing to his previously established K%, which is the more reasonable way to go. But he's 26, and he could have that Huge MVP Year any year now.
Vic
12:13
More surprising in 2016 for Buxton....80 runs, 15 HRs, 30 SBs, and a .280 AVG or 40 runs, 5 HRs, 10 SBs and a .230 AVG?
Eno Sarris
12:13
For me, the first one.
Owen S.
12:13
This may be a question better suited for a Dave, but let's see if you can help: Why do most players have two separate steamer projections? One on their main page, and one listed under their team's depth chart. Aroldis Chapman, par example, has a 1.4 WAR projection on his player page (65IP) and a 2.2 WAR projection on the 2016 Yankee depth chart (65 IP). Double-You Tee Eff
Eno Sarris
12:14
I believe it has to do with who controls the playing time... wait what? same playing time? Maybe it has to do with putting him at the closer role or not. Depth charts may also have something to do with leverage, if they put him at closer or something.

If Brian Eno snuck up behind you and covered your eyes and said "guess who?" How many guesses before you got it right?
Eno Sarris
12:14
one million

I wrote a terrible question earlier so I'm going to try again. 12 team league 6 keepers, at least 2 must be pitchers. OBP instead of BA. Keeping; Rizzo, Bryant, Correa, Arrieta, Strasburg. Do I keep Syndergaard or Heyward for my final keeper?
Eno Sarris
12:15
Dang. I really want in on Heyward on a new team with a new hitting coach, but Thor is the madness. I'll go Thor, though his forearm things in the past are a little scary.

onzuna for chi chi sounds like a good deal for the marlins, right?
