Eno I have a real problem here. I'm kinda smart (I read FanGraphs) and am in a real good 10 team keeper league with a 6x6 scoring system. I don't know how to properly evaluate my league's auction values by inputting our settings into some sort of tool. Where can I do this?
Eno Sarris

You want me to answer this question? It's easy! http://www.fangraphs.com/auctiontool.aspx

How bullish are you on tipping? What's your usual rule of thumb for tipping really good/really bad service?
Eno Sarris
1:26
They get paid terribly. I always tip, even if bad, at least 10%. Default is 15-20.

How screwed is my fantasy team (keep 16 league) when I had to keep both Ziegler and Cishek on the roster?
Eno Sarris
1:26
At least it's 16!

Ignoring position, who has the better bat/peak years: Maikel Franco or Michael Conforto?
Eno Sarris
1:27
For fantasy, it's probably Franco, but overall, I think Conforto's patience and oppo/up the middle approach is better.

Do we get to see Tim Anderson or JP Crawford at all this year? Are they worth drafting late as solid backups or do I need to spend more on other MI
Eno Sarris
1:27
Anderson maybe, if they don't sign Desmond, more likely. Crawford, September at most, but I doubt it. I wouldn't buy them as backups in redraft.

There are too many websites and blogs out there giving out sleepers. Even getting Jerad Eickhoff from an owner is a mess of frustration. Can you do a Wet Blanket podcast that talks values back down to Earth?
Eno Sarris
1:28
You know, this happens in scouting writing too. Everyone wants to talk everyone up! Who's talking crap on people. That's why I wrote that piece about lumps of coal for the top pitching guys. You could flip the script and talk crap on everyone. Would be valuable.

In an effort to cut down their strikeouts, The Orioles just got Odrisamer Despaigne
Eno Sarris
1:29
Did they really? Oh man. He's a joy to watch, and probably also to face.

What do you think of Verlander and Matt Moore this year?
Eno Sarris
1:29
Buying a few shares of Verlander based on resurgence of the high fastball.

Is Lee that new mariner really 6'5 300 lbs?
RotoLando
1:31
We need Japhet Amador. If that doesn't work, we'll settle for Yapeht Kotto

Having a bachelor party in portland. What breweries/bars are worth going to? I have heard cascade is worth going to. But what are some other good/lesser known spots?

Follow up on my Sculpin question. I understand the math. But bombers are usually beers only available in bombers. Sculpins are everyday beers not special releases or seasonal or anything. I just don't see many other six packs that are $15.
Eno Sarris
1:33
True, but Sculpin used to be that special bomber beer, so they trading on that. And the Grapefruit is selling out, so they happy. That's why, I guess.
Ugh

$10 Aaron Nola or $6 Yordano Ventura? 20 team league with where 100 SP's will be on rosters
Eno Sarris
1:33
Still Yordano. More pure stuff.

what to do about the fact that nerds in my league read everything i do, take minutes on every chat i participate in, follow my secret baseball-only twitters? making decisions for myself is NOT AN OPTION.
Eno Sarris

Would you pay for a discreet advice channel?

Kang Kang Kang...Bang! This guy was ringing the bell last summer for the Buccos. Assuming he is at full health by May latest do you think he will have an even better year in 2016?
Eno Sarris
1:35
Someone was asking about his work against breaking balls, and that the league will adjust to that. His whiff rate against sliders was 17% (average is 14%), curve was 15% (11% average), so there's a bit of something there. But he's also adjusted at least once to this league, so I think he can do it again.

1:36
Chris Sale's 2nd half saw increased slider usage, higher contact % allowed, lower swstr%. Any concerns there?
Eno Sarris
1:36
Only the ongoing injury issue, if he was doing that for an injury reason. Otherwise, when he's in, he's still awesome.
Derek
1:36
Doing Ottoneu for the first time. Any draft advice other than very low abv beers so I'm not passed out drunk by the 6th hour?
Eno Sarris
1:37
Don't pay more than $5 for a prospect, don't buy more than 7 or so prospects, only platoon one or two spots, not more.

MOOKIE LOVE... AL Only, 5x5 - What $ wins MOOKIE?
Eno Sarris
1:37
Auction calculator says $35, but has Trout at $41, so you may have to go to $40 to get Betts.
