You, because between Wright's back and Asdrubal Cabrera's suckiness, he's got a lot of daylight.

So beer athlete question: I'm a long distance runner and the nights before my half marathons I try to drink a few beers. Just enough to tire me out so I can sleep but also enough to load up on my carbs. My problem is it's a very fine line to walk before I get too drunk and I have to race hungover. I guess my question is should I go for two imperials for their high abv or four lighter beers for the carbs?
Eno Sarris
12:44
Lighter ones. with water, but you knew that.

Any other breweries worth going to in Charsleton, SC besides Westbrooke?
Eno Sarris
12:45
COAST, Holy City, and RJ Rockers, though the last is in Spartanburg.

Wait... do people hate on AleSmith X? Just tried it for the first time the other day, on the strength of their IPA. I thought it was really good--and eminently sessionable.
Eno Sarris
12:45
It just doesn't rate as highly for some. For me, it's a top three-to-five session.

Used to work for the indians. We share the same concourse downstairs as the players, media ect. I was waiting outside the retail office to check in my takings for the day when a bunch of Angels players came around the corner (they were heading to the elevator ). I recognized Mike Trout, but also Chris Ianetta was there, Hank Conger as well as a few other lesser known guys. I really really really wanted to act all visibly exited then yell at the top of my lungs "oh my god, it's Hank Conger!" But the Indians as a whole really don't really like staff bothering the players, so I didn't do it. I work for another company now, but still regret chickening out in that moment.

They would have laughed their ass off.
Second Half Splits
12:46
They're not predictive, right? But like...I'm totally using them to get psyched about Desclafani. And to talk myself out of Joc Pederson. Am I crazy?
Eno Sarris
12:46
I don't think they are by themselves. But when I see a change in approach plus a change in splits (Desclafani), then I get interested.
PRETTY PLEASE ENO
12:46
Dude can we get your SP ranks included in the table for the updated RotoGraphs composite ranks? That would be SO AWESOME.
Eno Sarris
12:47
Yah I will make Sporer do that for the Draft Kit rankings.
Joe

Braves closer?
Eno Sarris
12:47
Grilli first, to keep the youngsters cheap.
Joe
12:47
Milwaukee/Cincy closers?
Eno Sarris
12:48
Maybe Will Smith, but he and Jeremy Jeffress literally split all of the things I look for in a closer (velocity, K rate, handedness, role), so that one is super tough. Hoover going to get first crack in Cincy, but Diaz will take it from him at some point.

Is Joc Pederson’s 2nd half struggle related to mental? Mechanic? Or rookie slump?
Eno Sarris
12:48
He's athletic and has dominated everywhere. He hasn't needed to make adjustments like he needs to make now. I remain optimistic.

Had a Hopslam in a can last night. Delicious. #humblebrag Tonight, Nugget Nectar in a can.
Eno Sarris
12:49
Hopslam in the mail to me but no NN yet.

You ever sign pitchers to long-term guaranteed contract? I have both Wade Davis and Betances coming due this season. either I can keep both for just 2016 @ $3 & $6, or I can extend both or either for +$5/season more. Thoughts? Thanks Bud!
Eno Sarris
12:49
I'm in a league like this and I've sworn off extending pitchers.
Max Kepler: Ja oder Nein?
12:50
So you love Max Kepler. In a keep forever (no penalties) league where 144 players are kept year to year, how early should he go in the free agent draft? Top...three rounds? Five rounds? First roun?
Eno Sarris
12:50
that's like 12 teams, 12 keepers, so you've got most of your lineup and starting rotation. Top three rounds I think. You want to be able to pick from the best pitchers that were not kept, maybe get a closer.. fourth round?

Jerad Eickhoff 214.2 IP 3.32 ERA 1.09 WHIP 8.116822 K/9
Eno Sarris
12:51

Gareth

Joe Ross eventually better than his brother?
Eno Sarris
12:51
Possible because he's still trying to throw the changeup.
Natitude Adjuster
12:52
Trea Turner going to hit at all in MLB this year? Looked overmatched last year. But that speed....
Eno Sarris
12:52
He actually made great contact, so I see the K rate coming down. Dunno about power.
The sub
12:52
Again I'm on this chat while my students are working. But the teacher wants to show a video. So now you're stuck with me.
Eno Sarris

Donald Duck geometry pool video?
jake
12:52
Gonna be a new Dad in April. Aside from lack of sleep, what else can I expect?
Eno Sarris
12:53
Equal amounts of joy and exhaustion. Total change in outlook on life and priorities. It's amazing.
Anthony
12:54
The Adam Conley hype doesn't make much sense to me...please explain outside of spin rate stats.
Eno Sarris
12:54
Above average whiffs on all three pitches, plus change, great movement on his pitches, had more velocity before injury and showed more velocity late last year, great home park, one of few young ready pitchers on back end of that staff.
12:55
Important to remember that I have him 110, which is in the deep mixed league, NL-only league range.
Joe
12:55
What does Park's line look like?
Eno Sarris
12:55
.240/.320/.440 with 22 homers in 2/3 playing time?
