I enjoy this

Take Mookie Betts and Noah Syndergaard. Tell me how they will finish, fantasy wise, in 2016 using the performances of players in 2015. (ex. Mookie will give you McCutcheon 2015 numbers/ Noah will give you deGrom 2015 numbers)
Eno Sarris
12:16
It won't look the same on the field, but I bet Syndergaard will do something like Chris Archer did last year. Same on the other side, I think Betts will do something like Lo Cain did, in his own way.

ZIPS doesn't love the Cardinals that much. Cards have terrific depth, but seem to lack elite talent these days. They may not spend their FA budget this offseason, based on offers they made that were rejected. What say you?
Eno Sarris
12:17
I wanted them to get one elite player and they did not. They could do it in-season, but that means they have to be good and someone with a good bat has to be bad enough to sell that player.

I LOVE Joe Ross this year (both for fantasy purposes and hoping my team miraculously trades for him). What are your projections for his output this year?
Eno Sarris
12:18
I have no problems with him. Looks like a carbon copy of his brother, and there's a little bit of upside in that changeup.

Hi Eno, love the podcast! Who are a few prospects that you don't see anyone mentioning that could blow up this season?
Eno Sarris
12:21
I'm not great at knowing what everyone is talking about, but if Brad Zimmer figures one thing out, that outfield ahead of him is terrible. He'll get a shot. Anthony Alford is different now. I actually really like Jorge Lopez and the Brewers need pitchers.

Barring the signing of Yoenis Cespedes on a pillow contract (lol), does this year give players a legitimate complaint against Mets ownership? This is literally the best possible time for them to have gone for it. If they'd added half as many wins as CHC, they'd be a 92 win team.
Eno Sarris
12:21
I don't hate the moves they made, but they are Oakland moves, not New York moves...
SF Dave

First Chat in a while, too bad it's a sick kid that gives me the time, but it just might be totally worth playing playdoh, barbie, paw patrol and legos to spend the next 1+ hours here while she watches Peanuts
Eno Sarris
12:22
Know all about that move.

1:46? Why is the chat in GMT-3? Are you in Brazil?
Eno Sarris
12:22
well someone must have made a mistake. I'll check with interns.

With the Seattle meetup tomorrow, I was wondering if you had a list of planned future meetups or if not, are there cities in which you would consider holding meetups.
Eno Sarris
12:24
I fly by the seat of my pants! I'm in Seattle to interview Kyle Boddy at Driveline, so I'm doing a meetup. I do one every year in Chicago, and should do SF again. San Diego and LA are easy enough for me, and I know we'll do one this year in New York. But I'm probably the most social of the FG crew, so I guess it sorta depends on me.

I bought my wife Father John Misty Tickets for her birthday, but she doesnt really know who he is. How do I get her to learn some of the songs while keeping the concert tickets a surprise?
Eno Sarris
12:24
Might be the best way is pandora, so that not every song is actually him? If you don't ever pandora, I guess a new playlist with 40% Misty is about right.
Pete
12:25
Eno, i have five dominant hitters. I'm also keeping Kluber and bumgarner. Should my eighth keeper be Jacob deGrom (2nd round) or Freddie Freeman (10th round)? 96 players are kept in this league so a 2nd round pick isn't truly a 2nd rounder. What do you think?
Eno Sarris
12:25
Freeman probably has more surplus value, but damn if I wouldn't keep those three pitchers.
Shawn

Stayed home with my sick 14 month old yesterday - took an afternoon trip to Treehouse - I got beer, she got her nap- good use of sick day or best use of a sick day?
Eno Sarris
12:25
Best
Bruce
12:26
Domingo Sanatana or Aaron "right thurrr" Althurrrrr for my last OF keeper?
Eno Sarris
12:26
Althurrrrrr probably has less talent, but more opportunity. I take Santana.

Eno! I'm heading to LA this weekend. What are widely-available beers that I should be on the lookout for to bring back? I know to keep my eye out for Russian River, etc, but are there any ones that are pretty easy I should bring back?
Eno Sarris
12:27
Modern Times (City of the Sun, Fortunate Islands, Mega Fortunate Islands), El Segundo (Mayberry, Hop Tanker) leap to mind. Dunno how much The Bruery you see. Pizza Port has some good beers in cans.
Nelson

No no no to the white noise machine, unless you bring it EVERYWHERE you go, your kid wont ever fall asleep without it. Like a pacifier.
Eno Sarris
12:28
Hasn't been my experience, but I'm not touting my experience with kids sleep to anyone. Just got the 15-month-old through the night.
Desmond
12:29
The numbers love the dodgers no matter what huh? Case in point justin tuner In no way is he better than matt Duffy right? How is a young low upside player like Duffy not on the level of a 32 year old zero upside turner other then one plays for dodgers the other doesn't huh?
Eno Sarris
12:29
Matt Duffy is projected for more overall wins than Justin Turner, based on superior defense. Turner has more power and patience, which are important.

Why isn't Avisail for Jay Bruce happening? What am I missing here?
Eno Sarris
12:30
Handedness? Also, they may want to give Garcia one more chance..

Do you do Ottoneu? I'm looking into playing this year, especially if it has more advanced stats than your typical league.
Eno Sarris
12:31
I do, and it's great, and it's tough. They have 5x5, 4x4, SABR points, and FG points. The last two are basically baed on wOBA and FIP.

Brad Miller given the starting SS gig in TB can do what this year? .250/.320/.410 15HR/60R/60RBI/15SB reasonable?
Eno Sarris
12:32
Under on the SLG, but if he plays every day, over on R/RBI and the rest look reasonable. I do think they want him to play almost everyday.
Craig in Chicago
12:32
Also, I saw Foals open up for Silversun Pickups. Foals might have been better?
