Will Shane Greene get a chance to start again?
Eno Sarris
12:02
Mike Pelfrey is currently their fifth starter. Yes.

Does Sean Nolin get the #5 spot in the A's rotation?
Eno Sarris
12:02
Chris Bassitt saw more velocity and more sizzle form his curve than most expected, I have him fifth and if Hendo Alvarez healthy, he's ahead of Nolin too.

Ottoneu 5x5, $19 Belt + $11 Murphy for $5 Reddick, good deal for both sides?
Eno Sarris
12:03
Nah. I want Belt.

ENOOOO. Am I crazy or is now the time to trade Lorenzo Cain? Almost 30 and coming off his first rotoy-stellar year.
Eno Sarris
12:03
Great time to sell. Possible late peak guy, but even 29 is a late peak. Remember all the injuries?
Ol' Blue
12:03
Bidding on a bench sleeper - Morneau or Napoli? What is the possible best case scenario on both.
Eno Sarris
12:04
Napoli has a team and a decent role at least.

What is the biggest trade you have ever made and how did it work out?
Eno Sarris
12:05
I traded a super expensive Trout last year and I think it'll be kind of poopy.

Through sheer luck I acquired two bottles of Maine Beer Co's Lunch yesterday. I'll be drinking one bottle tonight. However, my wife is 6 mos pregnant and is insisting that I save the 2nd bottle to share after the baby is born. Questions are: 1) Do I need to do this is, as a husband? and 2) If Lunch sits in a cabinet for 3 months, is it still considered "fresh?"
Eno Sarris
12:05
No, you have to drink it now. Start trading now, and in three months trade for Lunch again. That's all I got, because it sounds like she wants it, but you'll have to explain it won't be good then, so your bed is made. Trading isn't so bad.

Please pick 1 keeper: Joc/Soler/Buxton

Man we tackled this on the podcast yesterday, at least Soler v Buxton. I think in this case you have to look at giggity upside, and Soler's best case scenario, even for a lover like me, is probably .260/30. Buxton's is probably .280/15/40, and Joc maybe .250/25/15. This is an argument for Buxton, even though I don't love him, I guess.

Any ideas for a undervalued mid to low tier 3B with some upside I could bring in as a backup? OBP/dynasty keep forever league so age plays a big factor. Also what are your thoughts on Longoria please?
Eno Sarris
12:08
Longo might be that guy. Not a top guy anymore, but .275/25 is okay for top six seven. If you want lower tier, Justin Turner seems to be forgotten. I still like Brett Lawrie to have some upside in that new park.
Pris Pringle

got stuck with Eugenio Suarez in redraft, scared about his decline in walk rate, are his .iso gains forreal though?
Eno Sarris
12:10
Projections believe and he was always headed this way. He's not quite a sleeper because he doesn't have great upside, but he's also in possession of a role and not a bad player.

Maybe not your usual type of guy, but he's amazing. Check him out.

Hey that was an early interlude. Well done.

I'm starting to love sours but they are hard to find (I'm in SoCal). Any suggestions for ones I can explore?
Eno Sarris
12:12
I'm guessing you've had or know you can have all The Bruery ones. One of my favorites, and also Jeff Sullivan's favorite, is the Red Poppy from Lost Abbey (a Pizza Port company). Lost Abbey also makes a Framboise sour that is A. May. Zing. Sours down south... a trip to Modern Times at the right time in San Diego and you might find something fun. And then there are the nationally available ones like Goose Island Halia and Juliette. You might even see Cascade down there. Only get Sang Noir and Black Cap if you can, since Cascade a little expensive. All sours expensive though.

Either I'm going to eat this apple on my desk, or it's going to turn into a fruit fly hatchery.

Bet on the flies.

Earlier this week we learned that Carson likes slim-fit jeans from Bonobos. What kind of fit and jeans does Eno like?
Eno Sarris
12:13
Oh man Bonobos the bomb. Used to know the guys running that shop. I have no money. Have like two pair of tight ass levis that I have to struggle to get my phone out of.

Dan Farnsworth has a PV/FV of 65/75+. Definitely an awesome addition to the Fangraphs staff!
Eno Sarris
12:14
That's a nice thing to read. I like the guy a lot. He's a hard worker with a great eye for hitters.

Reading Big Data Baseball per your recommendation. I have an issue with this line: "since the dawn of the game, defensive alignment had not been based upon data but rather by placing players equidistant from each other." Guys were in those positions because that's where the balls get hit, especially SS and 2b. Could they be better positioned, yes, but to say they are there because managers wanted them to be equidistant from each other is inaccurate. Do you agree with Sawchik on this point?
Eno Sarris
12:15
Didn't think about at the time, but I believe you're right. We tend to belittle old school knowledge, but if you look at spray charts, the positions are actually generally near where baseball hits em, if not where each player hits em.
