Walt Jocketty seems to think the Reds can be competitive this year. Is he delusional, really delusional, really really delusional, or does he have incriminating photographs of Moreno and is about to acquire Mike Trout for Phillips?
Eno Sarris
12:24
Wants to keep people buying tickets as long as he can.

What's your approach during the weeks between having an auction and the season beginning? Do you sit on your hands and let the blueprint unfold, or constantly make moves if they'll make your team better?
Eno Sarris
12:24
I'll move some bench pieces around...
Tyrion

What should I do about weiters? not much available on the waiver wire.. who should I target in a 16 team league if he's out for some time...
Eno Sarris
12:24
Wait.

I have Addison Russell value at about $6 in a 10 tm league w/ 18hr/10stl/.265 BUT It's a keeper league where you can keep them forever at $5 over the prior year price. What price would you pay for Addison Russell in a league like this?
Eno Sarris
12:25
I can't imagine pushing past $10.

Avisail Garcia making adjustments to his batting stance + now having a clear path to regular playing time.If i tell you 270-20 HR over a full season.Are you a believer ? Or maybe the WS will make a trade ?
Eno Sarris

The only thing that makes me wonder about him is that he did find some exit velocity and more fly balls late last year, which might mean the power is coming. Mostly I feel we've waited long enough.

Give us an unreasonably optimistic prediction, based on a super small sample size.
Eno Sarris
12:28
Basically my Jake Lamb bold prediction?

Chasing one snotty kid around, chasing one poopy kid around, one beer in hand, not green.
Bork

Your "Ok." is worse than my girlfriends, Eno. That hurts.
Eno Sarris
12:29
Isn't it amazing how they can do that? Fine.
Manuel
12:29
You ranked Darvish 35th. Do you believe he'll be in full form when he returns?
Eno Sarris
12:30
He's moving down. Command comes back late and he may not come back till later in year with the new longer TJ timelines.
Art Vandelay
12:30
It's getting (deservedly) hyped a lot already, but I just have to throw in my recommendation that the new Kamaiyah mixtape is the perfect thing to bring in the warm months.
Eno Sarris

Can I bring my kid to this chat?

nick castellanos is my sleeper...what do you think?
Eno Sarris
12:31
Sure. There are incremental adjustments in his rear view mirror, and he's at the right age. Would be a hell of a turnaround from a real baseball perspective, as he's been below replacement level so far, but from watching, I have hope.

When are the playing time battles articles going to be completed?
Eno Sarris
12:32
Should be soon?
RotoLando

Forget bat flips, I want someone to do the MC Hammer dance around the bases after a HR. Would need powerful thighs, though.
Bork
12:32
Batflip Derby would be so good. It could turn into the dunk contest of MLB. Combine dingers with batflip art

This girl in my office won the NCAA pool last year by always picking the teams with Cat based mascots. She was a Kentucky win away from cleaning house
Eno Sarris

an actual sport-themed interlude.
Halp

are spin rates published somewhere?
Eno Sarris
12:32
unfortunately no.

What are your thoughts on Max Kepler (Min) do you think hell see time in the Twins OF this year?
Eno Sarris
12:33
The hell he will. Bad joke. Yeah, Rosario and Park have enough bust rate, Buxton enough bust and injury rate, and Sano/Plouffe/Park could shuffle in a way that provides Kepler a chance this year.

In 2 yrs, who's the better fantasy SS......Seager or Correa
Eno Sarris
12:34
Correa
Aaron

This year is my first time auction drafting after 6 years of snake draft. Strategies/advice?
Eno Sarris
12:34
Get your values set, have five or six targets per position, and a few ideas of key players that will make you change strategy in other spots. You can get who you want to get, but that doesn't mean the draft won't change your plan as it unfolds.

There doesn't seem to be consistency in the way "#1 starter, #2 starter," etc. is used. Is a #1 starter a #1 for some team (meaning a top-30 starter)? It seems like it's more often used "#1 for a contender" (meaning a #1 is really a top-12-type pitcher). I am flummoxed when I hear people say, for example, Jose Berrios projects as a #3 starter if he pans out. If he pans out, he's the Twins' (non-contender) #1 starter today, isn't he?!
Eno Sarris
12:35
Not every team has a number one and we have to have a normalized term, #1 starter has to be top 15 or 20 type pitcher, IMO. I see a tier around 15-17 every year in fantasy terms, so that's what I think of as an ace.
