Silino Branchos ZIPS projection was really really nice. Im talking about a 31% K-rate, 6% BB rate. Are we looking at a Betances type year from him?
Eno Sarris
12:26
Super straight fastball, but maybe so straight it's slightly cut? In any case, yes, I would make the sexy time with his statistics.

Hey Eno! What are your expectations for Giles in Houston? Do you think he is a lock to close, and how many saves would you expect him to get, given the quality of the team and rotation? Thanks
Eno Sarris
12:27
Closing. They didn't trade Vince to worry about Giles' arbitration money.

What are your thoughts on young Rockie OF Dahl and Tapia?
Eno Sarris
12:28
Tapia is so so so weird. In his two-strike counts, he crouches down and becomes an extreme slap hitter. It's such an obvious tell that I think it will be easy for pitchers to manipulate him. Maybe he can be a slap-hitting D guy with speed, but I'm not spending much to find out. Dahl a little more interesting, and could come up this year, so I'd take a share.

Are Bonds & Clemens on your ballot?

yes.

Awhile ago you penned an article basically entitled "The Pirates should think out of the box and sign John Jaso for 1B". 2 weeks later, the Pirates did exactly that. Did a Pirates intern show Huntington your article? Are you a genius?
Eno Sarris
12:29
I am not a genius, no way. Just went through the same thought process they went through, probably: cheap, left-handed, doesn't require players to get.
(and has some upside, has been great v LHP)

Framing stats should always be described as rate stats right? I get irked when I see framing numbers presented as pitches saved over the course of the year. In my mind I liken this to hits per season. Am I wrong?
Eno Sarris
12:30
Some people really prefer counting stats. I don't get it.
What if......
12:30
......you had your own hour long regular show on the MLB Network, what would be the theme of your show? Who would you want as your co-host/sidekick?
Eno Sarris
12:31
I'd have fun doing pitching and hitting with Farnsworth, or maybe just making it all about pitching with Sporer.

Eno! Today I am tuning in from Discovery Bay Jamaica! Also, the mets. How much money should I wager that they don't even make the playoffs this season? I am thinking a lot
Eno Sarris
12:32
YES! Auto post. Also: jealousy. No, I don't think so. A full year of Conforto and Matz will undo some of their cheap offseason. Projected to be sixth in baseball this year and have just enough youth on the roster to think they could do better.

When will your SP ranks drop?
Eno Sarris
12:33
We starting to talk SP on the podcast today, and I'll be working on them as I edit the player caps!

Just read your twitter mentions and ugh
Eno Sarris
12:33
I have put some distance in between me and them and feel better.
Big Joe Mufferaw

Do you think it makes more sense that the Yankees use one of their 3 elite BP arms as a "Fireman" of sorts (putting out fires that the SPer or another RP created regardless of the inning) and the other 2 as the 8th and 9th inning? instead of the traditional 7th-8th and 9th inning roles?
Eno Sarris
12:34
They are totally made for this.

My fav (worst) mention in your TL: MEN LIKE BASEBALL AND MEN LIKE BEWBZ SO WHO CARES
Eno Sarris

Literally could have tweeted a shrug emoticon at me.

Does one have to have an interesting last name to write for Fangraphs?
Eno Sarris
12:35
My name's not that interesting. Well, the first three names of four are, but not the last one. That's just Greek. Never heard of Andrew Sarris?

If Marlins are willing to trade Ozuna for Chi Chi, why not trade him to the mets for Wheeler or Montero+
Eno Sarris
12:35
We don't know the Mets made that offer.
