Kershaw is gonna be suuuuuuuuper expensive to keep this year, like $70 ($300 budget). But jeez man, he's been my anchor! Do I really risk throwing him back and trying to get him at auction? I'm keeping Lester and Stroman as well.
Eno Sarris

Geez. Projections, WAR, everything has him as clearly the best pitcher. I've seen a $60 challenge bid from Lawr Michaels in an NL-only league that went unchallenged, and that was in a $260 budget. I think I'd throw him back, personally. What the most expensive pitcher last year?

What's your thoughts on Xander this year ?? Any power growth??
Eno Sarris
12:02
Here's the thing. I think he has to change his swing some to get more power. Here's the other thing. He's changed his swing before and hits the ball hard. Just into the ground. That's the bad thing.

What is a white noise machine, and why is it so highly recommended by new parents?
Eno Sarris
12:03
Sounds like a highway turned down a bit. I don't even know if it works, I just turn it on for the baby every night...

Dodgers basically got Kendrick, E. Hernandez and Barnes for Dee Gordon. Kendrick is gone and Gordon was good last year, Hernandez seems buried as depth. Are we almost to the point where we are reaching "Miami won the Dee Gordon" trade levels, even without knowing what Barnes' career will look like. Also, Heaney is meh right now.
Eno Sarris
12:03
They did get that year of Kendrick, and we haven't seen next year's version of Dee, but it certainly looks that way right now.

The other day someone asked a question about the 2008 Blue Jays being historic underachievers. I looked at the Astros run differential and BaseRuns this season, and I was shocked at how the 2015 Astros actually under performed even more. Should that be encouraging for 2016 or a red flag?
Eno Sarris
12:04
I bet a ton of those teams had terrible bullpens, so I think that was what the Giles trade was about.
Chad

Velasquez or Daniel Norris for future value? also will Velasquez get a rotation spot this yr in PHI?
Eno Sarris
12:05
I like Velasquez more. Been trying to acquire him in a few leagues. I don't think he'll necessarily start the year in the bigs, but I do think he'll finish it.

I am worried about Arrieta's workload last year and am seriously considering trading him no to improve my lineup in my dynasty league. Am I being paranoid?
Eno Sarris
12:06
I usually jump at any chance to trade pitching for hitting, and I guess Arrieta's new mechanics might mean he's going to stay healthier, but we can't forget he was once oft hurt. I would do it. No time like the present.

Do you ever feel less creative than you were when you were younger? I'm getting into my mid 20s, not old at all, and I already feel a lot of the things I used to enjoy doing (writing mostly), it's just not as dynamic, or as easy to make something new. Is this nostalgia, or am I not alone here?
Eno Sarris

As you get older, you read more, see more, acquire more, and know more often what has been done before. So when you were young you were like I'LL WRITE A BOOK ABOUT KIDS IN NEW YORK IT'LL BE VIGNETTES AND MELANCHOLIC AND SO AWESOME and then later you're like, yeah Kids was pretty good.
12:08
But that should also mean that *what* you create once you break through is better, more sophisticated, and hopefully more lasting.

Are you "in" on Max Kepler or are you "out" (like Kiley was.) His 2015 and rest of his career are quite different. What does his peak look like to you?
Eno Sarris

FIrst: I'm German. He's German. I might be blinded by this and biased. BUT. He has always had great plate discipline and contact skills. I love plate discipline and contact skills. I might be blinded by this and biased. BUT. He's 22 years old and just showed some natural power growth in his first taste of Double-A. I love natural power growth in first tastes of a new level. I might be

Does Sano get 3b eligibility ?? Are u buying his top 5 power in MLb
Eno Sarris

No. Yes!

Should the White Sox be considering Jimmy Rollins as a bargain SS option? Rollins is getting old, but did have a crazy low BABIP last year, and still plays a decent SS.
Eno Sarris
12:11
I bet they are talking to him. Then Tim Anderson and Saladino can take his job if they are actually, you know, better than him.

How much do you think Dexter Fowler's defense is holding his market back? He doesn't have great instincts and has one of the worst arms in the league.
Eno Sarris
12:11
I'm sure it is. You'd think that the Mets would have been in on him since they signed a meh-D CF, or the Giants...
vader

where do you think matt carpenter should hit in the StL lineup?
Eno Sarris
12:12
Two or three.
BigBopper

Strasburg is gonna be awesome this year and I should try to acquire him in a keeper league where little elite pitching will be available in the auction, right?
Eno Sarris
12:12
Just talk about his injuries so the price is low.
Bork

As a Jays fan the loss of Kawasaki hit me more than the loss of Price :(

Fun little dude.

What are the biggest holes that have yet to be addressed by contending teams? Thinking like "Angels-LF", "Cleveland-3B", that type of thing.
Eno Sarris
12:13
Angels LF for sure. There's nothing as glaring as that.

What are your thoughts about a bounce back for Wil Myers? It seems like forever ago he was the next hot prospect.
Eno Sarris
12:13
I'm into it. Those wrists are terrible, so maybe not. But one year he'll be healthy all year, and it will look nice. Still young.
