Even though Im almost 40 I have no real memories of Griffey in his prime, I guess since he was on the west coast. Where does the backwards hat come from? Would he wear it backwards in the OF? I cant imagine hes the only one wearing a backwards hat in BP
Eno Sarris
12:16
Probably from the video games.

hey eno i was thinking what would happen if justin upton just decided he wanted to start a new baseball league like why bother with all of this when he could just do irl backyard baseball do you have any thoughts sincerely, larry reynolds
Eno Sarris

Anti trust probably comes into play somehow here.

Who is the non closer this year that makes the ascent to elite fantasy closer with opportunity? (yankees not included)
Eno Sarris
12:16
Hmmm. Keone Kela? Arquimedes Caminero
12:17
other candidates: Pedro Strop, Ryan Madson. CARTER CAPPS
Brian

Who is your break out SP this year?
Eno Sarris
12:18
Everyone hopped on the Raisel Iglesias bandwagon so it's crowded now. I like John Lamb and Anthony Desclafani still. Chris Bassitt. Those are guys are slightly deeper league guys though. I'll be writing and podcasting about this shortly.

Quick fantasy question. Would you trade Stanton in a points league for either Machado or Arenado. Need help at 3b.
Eno Sarris
12:19
Yes. Machado, I think, though I'd take either. Both first rounders. Stanton also, but back end.

What are your expectations for Jorge Soler this season?
Eno Sarris
12:19
I'll rein it in a bit and call it .260/.320 with 22-25 homers.

Pet peeves: one-sided printing, standing on the left of an escalator, unexpected nudity.
Eno Sarris
12:20
That last one came out of nowhere and really made that interlude pop.

Brewers signing Carter for only $2.5MM seems like a potentially awesome deal w/ potentially 3 years of control. Seems like a good buy low candidate considering the .244 babip last year, no?
Eno Sarris
12:21
Eh, he hits everything in the air, wouldn't be surprised if his natural BABIP level wasn't any better than .265-.270.

What are your thoughts on Ramirez? Better or worse than Cabrera? Obviously neither hold a candle to Rodriguez.
Eno Sarris
12:21
McCullough said he thought he took the biggest offer, and I suspec that's true.
Zach

Is Comforto a .300 20 HR guy at peak?
Eno Sarris
12:21
I'll give him more power.
12:22
He has excellent oppo power though, so the batting average is certainly possible.

Am I wrong to be a little skeptical of Lucas Giolito's eliteness? "only" a 10% swinging strike rate in AA by Statcorner last year...big fastball big curveball combo doesn't seem one that is often Elite
Eno Sarris
12:22
I traded away my share. Ks went down, the change didn't seem to progress, his team could easily go with high floor over ceiling given their place on the run curve..
Josh

Why does steamer seem to hate Sonny Gray so much, especially with the WHIP?
Eno Sarris
12:23
Been writing about that. Easy answer is that he's had a low BABIP so far, but not in a sample big enough to believe it. Hard answer: he may be elite at getting pull grounders and oppo flies, which are good outcomes.

I whipped up a batch of the honey, dijon, sriracha spread, substituting Texas Pete and it's awesome too. Recommend trying if you haven't.
Eno Sarris
12:23
It's the bees knees.

Speaking of Fowler...would he be a fit for the Mets? Can platoon in CF with Lagares or play other OF positions to spell Grandy and Conforto. Or is he just too pricy?
Eno Sarris
12:24
Problem is that his best side is the side Lagares hits from, and his D might not be CF any more. I *also* don't think they going to spend on him.

Why are the Braves so adamant about holding on to Freeman? Seems like if you're gonna rebuild, you should just go all in. Also, is the singer Adam Ant a weird pun on the word "adamant" or is that just a coincidence?
Eno Sarris
12:24
I think they think they have him under contract so long and so good that they'll be good again while he's still there. Looks like a decent skillset for aging too. and... yes, I've had that thought, but I don't know for sure.
