Who wins the Indians' CF job out of Spring Training? Is this individual worthy of a spot in mixed leagues? AL-only? Nothing?
Eno Sarris
12:01
You know who I think is going to win the job? Tyler Naquin, that's who.
12:02
As for his value... I think he could maybe .260/.320/.380 with some steals, which is AL-only type value.

Should I take Scherzer over Betts and Abreu in the second round of my fantasy draft? Also, would you take Arenado over Correa and Rizzo?
Eno Sarris
12:03
God I love Scherzer. I'd take him over Abreu, maybe, but I didn't in TOUT, and I wouldn't over Betts. I'd rather see what pitcher I can take in the third. Rizzo over both, but Correa over Arenado okay.

I'm curious why people aren't higher on McCullers this year. K/9 was over 9 last year and is projected to be this season. He threw 158 innings last year, so I doubt there's an innings cap. Good team, should compete all year. What am I missing?
Eno Sarris
12:03
I think people are still nervous about that changeup, and he can't command it. But. It has good shape and he is the business.

Are Berrios and Snell worthy of a roster spot in my AL-only keeper league? My auction is this weekend and I'm thinking of targeting them, but I'm worried that I might be tying up a roster spot half the season waiting on them to get called up. Do I bite the bullet or wait until May and pluck them through free agency then?
Eno Sarris
12:03
Berrios more than Snell. Tampa takes its time.

Heading to Bradenton next week and looking for some beer and food recs. Any ideas from you or fellow chatters will be greatly appreciated. Already have Cigar City on the radar.

All I got is Funky Buddha and I'm not great about south Florida geography, it may be far. But they are also good.

So how do you get into beer trading? I don't really know anything about it, other than that I want beer that I can't usually get.
Eno Sarris
12:06
I set up trades on the BeerGraphs Friday chat, but there's a Beer Exchange site too that works for people. We have a post about how to pack and pick your trade partner over there too. It's a bit expensive, but it's really fun to get great beer from another part of the country.

I was so hot on Alex Wood last year. For two years he looked like a sex stud in the making. - what happened - any chance he can get it back
Eno Sarris
12:06
Apparently he spent the offseason getting his old arm slot back, so I actually have hope. Grandal will also help him a ton.
Bryan
12:06
Are there any reliable sources for spring training velocity charts?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Beat writers, mostly.
Brian
12:06
Samardzija seems to be a popular bounce back candidate. Are you on board with that? I'm terrified that the Ks disappeared last year.
Eno Sarris
12:07
Too many cutters. I think he'll get em back. Swinging strike rate was down, but not out.
Jake M

Do you think Sale, Quintana, and Rodon have a a chance to be the best 1-2-3 in baseball within three years or so?
Eno Sarris
12:07
Yes. Yes. Rodon's change looks good, it's a bit like McCullers in that he can't command it awesome yet. But a little tweak and he can be a 1, meaning they have a 1's 1, a 1, and one of the more solid 2s.

Oww, my face!!!
Eno Sarris

Damn guys. Pretty early for the good stuff.
JC
12:09
Any new info on Tanaka? Do you think he'll make his 25 starts in 2016?
Eno Sarris
12:09
I just think there are plenty of UCLs that look like his, and he'll be managed on his way to 150+ innings.
Ricky Vaughn
12:09
I can't believe I'm asking this, but anything to get excited about with Uribe in Cleveland? Should I be cringing if he ends up as my starting 3B in AL-only?
Eno Sarris
12:10
I have him pegged at exactly a dollar in those leagues, which is hard to do. But that's on depth chart PA, which I think he could actually surpass. The depth chart has to hedge to get Urshela and others in.
David

Petriello's piece on the future of the pitching rotation was really interesting. At what point do you think teams may start using their pitching staff more like teams do in the playoffs? Also, which team do you see blazing the trail here? http://m.mlb.com/news/article/157383440/starting-pitchers-should-throw-fewer-innings
Eno Sarris
12:10
The Rays are doing this right now. The Cubs. It's happening.
Orlando
12:10
Is Conforto going to play every day to open the year?
Eno Sarris
12:10
No, which makes him less of a sleeper than people want him to be, but I think he can still manage around 450-500 PA.
Billy Beane

Oakland seems to have a few fantasy randoms that I can't quite project in terms of value. Who do you fancy most from guys like Valencia, Alonso, Lowrie and Coghlan?
Eno Sarris
12:11
Coghlan. Worried that Valencia becomes a vLHP platoon. Lowrie super util is interesting, I think he'll add a lot of eligibilities.
Don
12:11
Keep forever no cost, extra cats h, bb, ops, tb, xbh, Yelich or Schwarber?
Eno Sarris
12:11
Schwarber for this year's catcher goodness and chance he keeps that eligiblity.
