Bracho Cheez

Bracho's swstrk (15%) on the fastball is so weird, especially considering it's 93. How can that be a fastball? That's Mariano elite.
Eno Sarris
12:46
The x value on that is so far divergent from average (almost four inches 'straighter') that I bet it acts like a cut fastball. And a cut fastball at 93 is actually pretty sexy.
Nelson
12:46
not who shoud, but who wil get the first chance at saves in CIN? Hoover, Diaz, other?
Eno Sarris
12:46
Hoover will, but I bet on Diaz longer term. Wish he wasn't so old though.
CAM

So who is the PED cutoff player? The guy the voters draw a line at and simply won't vote for?
Eno Sarris
12:46
Sammy Sosa?
Pat

Don't you think Vincent Velazquez should be getting more love in the NL? Great buy as the last pitcher on your staff?
Eno Sarris
12:47
Yes he's on my list. All the movement and velocity numbers line up.
Scott

Ketel Marte o/u 30sbs?
Eno Sarris
12:48
Safer to go under because his OBP likely to crash.
Jimmy

If I recall, you had cautioned that Matz might be a lefty Andrew Cashner - high velo but not great movement, avg to above avg overall - still the case?
Eno Sarris
12:49
I'd call it something I'm nervous about rather than projecting. The change has two inches of drop and 10 mph of difference.. if he trusts it, then he's ace-level.
Drew

How tf does Clemens get more votes than Bonds? I'm angry about this. They are both highly connected to PEDs so if you're not voting for one because of that, then how can you vote for the other?
Eno Sarris
12:49
yeah bit of an elephant in the room on that one.

Sullivan, Edwards, and Cameron are pretty boring names. Farnsworth is AAAA, but Sarris, Fagerstrom, and Cistulli = MVPs
Eno Sarris
12:50
Farnsworth, with a weirder first name: History Professor.

Most TV football commentators seemed outraged at the mere suggestion Peyton Manning could've used PEDs, despite the suggestive evidence. Is there any baseball player who would provoke a similar reaction if accused?
Eno Sarris
12:50
Derek Jeter.

Christian Yelich o/u 40 HR+SBs
Eno Sarris
12:50
under. really needs to hit the ball in the air.

I was talking with another guy in my redraft league over the holiday about where Correa is going to be drafted. I'm honestly of the mindset he could be a back-end first rounder based on positional value, while my friend said he wouldn't take him until the third or later. Thoughts?
Eno Sarris
12:52
First rounder. Check out Dan Schwartz rankings which don't use scarcity at all: http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/2016-fantasy-baseball-sleepers-contd-and-ending-the-position-scarcity-argument/
Correa sixth by projections.

how good do you think maikel franco can be? he's shown some nice contact skills with plus power, does he profile like a mini beltre to you?
Eno Sarris
12:52
Yes.

Hey Eno! What do you think about Nomar Mazara? I have a hard time separating baseball prospects from fantasy baseball prospects.
Eno Sarris
12:53
I've been staring a hole into his page, even checked with some people in the game. I think he's a really good prospect, but more top 25 than top 10. Especially in fantasy, since he won't steal many bases and doesn't have big power. Betting on batting average is super scary.
Uncle Philz
12:53
dude. Jerad Eickhoff. Pretty damn good last couple months of last year. so-so velo but elite slider if you look at the swstrk. Expectations?
Eno Sarris
12:54
On the list because the fastball rises well and gets lots of pop pups. And the change has been good in small sample. I'll probably rank him 60-70 or so. Definitely a mixed leaguer.
Maxamuz
12:54
No FG+!?
Eno Sarris
12:54
All the stuff will be there, you just won't have to pay for it.

Can SWSTRK%+ please be a stat added to players' Pitch F/x pages? It would help so much when wanting to compare to league average
Eno Sarris
12:55
Good idea.

I would have left Griffey off and voted for someone who could have used my vote more.
Eno Sarris
12:55
And I doubt we should get the pitchforks out for that.

What do you see out of Jesse Winker this year? Will he but starting full time after super 2?
Eno Sarris
12:56
Up after July probably, yes. Better OBP than BA probably. Might take a second to get the power going.
Drew
12:56
Top 20 exit velocity seems like plus to me. Where can I find an exit velo list?
