Eovaldi generate any excitement for you in 2016?
Eno Sarris
12:41
If he stays in one piece and throws the splitter 30% of the time again, yes.
Eric

Are you still down on Giolito?
Eno Sarris
12:41
I'm only down relative to the hype. Plus plus fastball, plus curve, we'll see about the change.

An ode to Max Scherzer:
The Scherzerker is just so obscene
Likes evil people, you know what I mean
He takes your soul and then just rips you apart
He'll steal your heart

If the Cubs somehow crash and burn during the first half of the season, do you think we'll see our first live goat sacrifice in MLB history?

No pants? Eno, I DONT HAVE ANY LEGS!!!!
Eno Sarris

I love us.

Am I crazy to think that Semien could be a top ~7 shortstop this year?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Not at all. He's in my top ten and that's based mostly on projections. If he's the late season guy (and that would line up with this minor league numbers), then he's better than back end top ten.

Who opens as closer for the Crew? Do you see Knebel getting the gig at some point this year?
Eno Sarris
12:44
Talked to a pitcher that is sure that front offices are manipulating relievers saves totals to keep their costs down. Will Smith is more expensive, so he gets the saves. JJ second in line.

Would you go after both Miller and Betances like the LABR guy did at the cost oif the extyra pitching spot? I think it's a good strategy for K's alone
Eno Sarris
12:45
I considered it. The only thing is, he paid for a top shelf closer and might only get 10-15 saves tops. Still, the rest will be so great.

Does the Cubs going to a hybrid pitching rotation full of super utility pitchers like Cahill, Warren and Richard neutralize the threat that the backend of their bullpen might be somewhat thin?

Great teams have been undone by bad bullpens and I was surprised the Cubs made no attempt to shore up the bullpen behind Rondon.
Eno Sarris
12:45
Bullpens are found. I think they'll find a guy this spring or trade for a guy.

Noticed you've partaken in some Treehouse stuff lately. Where do Julius, King Julius, et al rank for you in the pantheon of beer?
Eno Sarris
12:46
One and two.

I've read speculation that Altherr's injury might screw him up, cause when he gets back, there might not be an opening. It seems to me that Philly isn't so loaded with talent that a young guy with at least some isn't going to get just shuffled to the bench - he'll play or he'll get traded. Do you agree?
Eno Sarris
12:46
He'll get some run. Bad teams have to give guys like him a chance.

Do you like Adam Conley as much as I do? Chances he sees 20+ starts?
Eno Sarris
12:48
I do. And I'm glad they didn't get a fifth starter. I think he will break camp in that rotation.
Cousin Mose

What/who in AZ is holding back Jake Lamb from 600 PA this year? Am I totally irrational in saying 20 HR is a reasonable outcome?
Eno Sarris
12:48
I'm all over him. Well, not literally, that would be uncomfortable for both of us.
Cubs Fan
12:48
I don't know how to emotionally process being a fan of the best team in baseball on paper. I'm not used to this.

Eno I'm not going to lie to you, I'm extraordinarily hung over last night from drinking shitty beers, what's your method to cure my "flu like symptoms"?

Have you soured on Rubby De La Rosa? You started hot on him this offseason but haven't heard his name in a while. I think you might have even said he could have been this season's deGrom. If you no longer feel that way, who would be your new choice?
Eno Sarris
12:50
He's deGrom in that he's changed his slider movement and has the velocity and tools to succeed, but he's not anywhere close to deG when it comes to command, and that's the missing ingredient. I'll take him for a buck or two because the pieces are there.

Does Lewin Brinson get called up and make an impact by the end of the season?
Eno Sarris
12:51
September maybe but no. Mazara ahead of him and they need to take their time to make sure he doesn't turn into Gallo at the plate.
Ritt Momney
12:51
The better question is if MLB would allow synthetic UCLs? Gets into a PED gray area if you ask me.
Eno Sarris
12:51
Robo teams. The elbow guards and some of the equipment seem like a gateway drug, but I doubt it happens in our lifetime because people won't like it.
Bork
12:52
Eno and chill resulted in multiple babies. Are you sure you want that?
Eno Sarris
12:52
No! Don't blame me! I'm just sitting here with no pants on.
Dan
12:52
Is there such a thing as a bad ball hitter? Is YO one of them?
Eno Sarris
12:52
Sure. It's fine while they are young.

You buying Piscotty's power?
