Some beers disappointed me. But the highlights -- a brett mosaic wheat IPA (suit-n-tiepa) and a dark blackberry sour -- were good enough to go toe to toe with anyone's best.

How many years until we are able to 3D-print plastic, indestructible UCL's, making Tommy John surgeries a one-time, permanent fix for ligament tears and saving baseball from its most pervasive, career-ending injury?
Eno Sarris
12:20
I saw a 3-d printed car the other day.

Hi Eno. What do you think of Joe Ross. Sure shot to start all season long for the Nats or oncle Dusty will use Arroyo and/or Roark in front ?
Eno Sarris
12:21
Love. Joe. Ross. Has same numbers as brother.

Just chill? Like, Eno and Chill?
Eno Sarris

Well if your partner is into it, why not.

Rank from most likely to least likely: Carl Crawford traded, released, bench player, becomes the CC from Tampa
Eno Sarris
12:22
bench player, traded, released, Tampa.

Injuries aside, what is the knock on me? I never had prodigious power to start off with. Why am I not a top prospect anymore?
Eno Sarris
12:22
Recency bias? Also, though, that was a heck of an injury thing.
Stephen

Bubba Starling hit inside-the-park homerun in his first at bat this week. I expect MVP this year, no?
Eno Sarris
12:22
no.

What are people in the industry saying about Tim Anderson?
Eno Sarris
12:23
Giving him some credit for coming to baseball late, lamenting the White Sox development system for producing bad plate discipline, still hoping athleticism takes him past those flaws, fairly hopeful for him. Have actually talked about him like four times in the last two days. Rollins might start 75% of the year though.

Lots of debate on the value of Billy Hamilton going into this year. Seems like it will be a make or break season--do you think he manages his fly balls enough to steal 100 bags, or has the ship passed on hoping he'll be a top fantasy asset?
Eno Sarris
12:24
Ship has not sailed. Poop/potty year. I can't say that any of us know exactly what will happen.

I cant go on without knowing this: Is Andrew Heaney pronounced HEENY, or HANEY?
Eno Sarris
12:24
You asking the wrong guy but I think latter.
Paul
12:24
so that's what a beer and a baseball conversation can lead to
Eno Sarris
12:24
No pants? Sometimes, I guess, or the next day at least.

Is the difference between Sano and Pederson really worth 100+ picks? Seems like recency bias
Eno Sarris
12:25
I like Joc but his spring stance is super weird. I'm a little nervous. He has the tools but hasn't yet made the Big Adjustment.

Hey Eno, I saw the results of the Mixed Tout Draft. You were debating with Rizzo or Stanton as your first pick at the 5 spot. What made you go with Rizzo? I have 5th pick too, would you be willing to draft Rizzo and then if E5 or Abreu are there in the second round would you ever draft 2 first basemen in the first two rounds?
Eno Sarris
12:26
I decided that, yes, I would draft a second first baseman in the second round if he was there. Maybe I should have gotten a shortstop earlier, wanted Brad Miller one round, but Cesar Hernandez as my 2B feels just fine.
Eno's Crushes
12:26
2015 was to DeSclafani and Soler what 2016 is to.......

(not talking about what eventually happened)
Eno Sarris
12:27
Talked to DeSclafani again and he agreed that he felt really good late last year. The curve was "spinning well" and he now has a plan for how to use the change, he's not throwing it away. Add good fastball command, decent velocity, plus slider...
Gary

Hey Eno! I have no pants on either. Small world. So my league is moving from a normal h2h league to a OBP Roto league. Do you have any sort of articles on your approach to a Roto league? Any quick advice you could give out?
Eno Sarris
12:28
Not much different. Use the auction calculator and listen to the OBP podcast and you be fine.

Where are you on Aaron Judge? So much to like, but also a bunch of red flags.
Eno Sarris
12:28
Not every Huge Man develops Huge Power.

Trivia for any chat hosts you may be Jamaican: Led Zepplins most Reggae sounding song is called D'yer Maker, which makes no sense till you pronounce it Jermaka. Boom- mind blown!
Eno Sarris
12:29
wut.
12:30
I love it.
abestinkin

better 2016: garrett richards or strasburg?
Eno Sarris
12:31
Strasburg. We have one year with Richards showing the K rate we think he can show.
Paul
12:31
better bagel: poppy or sesame? And no, you cant answer with everything.
Eno Sarris
12:31
Value with respect to collective assumptions goes to poppy.
