Is the Cubs' hitting-first rebuild an accepted good strategy? As a Phillies fan, should I be worried that the new FO seems to be taking a pitching-first approach, given the success of the Cubs' rebuild?
Eno Sarris

Established young pitching seems like gold, but projection systems are worse at finding pitchers, which means opportunity: you can find the guy that's an adjustment away. The Cubs model is the way I'd go.

Are we getting tiers from Rotographs this year?
Eno Sarris
12:37
I'll tell them all to do their positions as soon as they done with Bold Prediction season.

You can't REALLY think Dyson is the Texas closer right now, can you? Sure, Dyson had one save in the playoffs, but I've seen nothing from the Rangers that indicate they're moving away from Tolleson in the closer role in 2016. I understand if you're wanting to make a bold call, but to say you really think Dyson is the closer right now seems like a big stretch.
Eno Sarris

I'm scarfing crazy pills but if the season started today, I'd be right. Tolleson just debuted last night and has back issues. You're right that it's a stretch on opening day, but I'm not buying Tolleson so that makes Dyson my Rangers pick either way.

How can Shark show Linecumitis? He was never that good.
Eno Sarris
12:39
well done.

Bogaerts or Seager in a keeper league?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Seager. We've seen his power in the big leagues and we're hoping Xander finds his.

Smith or Jeffress to start the season at closer?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Smith by a nose.

Many in Mets-land are knocking the move to release Ruben "Pastrami Sandwich" Tejada. Does it really matter? He was third-string at best. Am I wrong in thinking Matt Reynolds or Gavin Cecchini can provide whatever 2016 Ruben Tejada would have provided even with a major injury that would have opened the door for more playing time?
Eno Sarris

The defense was never better than aight and the patience was a mirage born of hitting eighth, IMO.

Are you a fan of Souza in OBP leagues?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Talent? Yes. Playing time? No.

Vizcaino or Sam Dyson?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Vizcaino I guess. In those super unsettled situations -- Texas is not really one of *those* -- I'll still take a shot at getting the closer from day one.

That song reminds me of the band (no joke) "Teen Porn". Not the wisest SEO decision there.

Dude, I was searching for Japan's song "performance" and I'll just say I didn't find what I was looking for but I found a whole lot more.

Goddamit if I don't love how spicy pineapple is.

Seeing Son Little with Leon Bridges tonight in Oakland. No question, I'm just really stoked.
Eno Sarris
12:42
Man I'd be there but kids and all that. Jeez.

I know a wrist/hand injury can be one of the worst for hitters, how bad is a shoulder injury for hitters? Im specifically thinking of Michael Brantley.
Eno Sarris
12:42
Between work done by Jeff Zimmerman and Stephania Bell, I believe he'll be fine.

Who has the best chance of value in a 12-team mixed: Conley, Pomeranz, Finnegan, Anderson, Tropeano?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Tropeano Finnegan Conley

Patrick Corbin is limited in innings for '16. Robbie Ray struggles to log innings. Archie Bradley is limited in innings for '16. Could making Bradley the handcuff for Corbin, and even Ray, be a "good" opportunity to develop him while mixing L/RHP matchups and limiting overexposure to tired starters and the underbelly of the bullpen?
Eno Sarris
12:44
I wanted to say that Tony LaRussa would never do that, but he's innovated the game before. They seem like they could really use their depth in an interesting way. Bradley would make a great three inning reliever, IMO.

Your view on Drake Laroche being in a clubhouse?
Eno Sarris
12:44
1) No other kid is in the clubhouse on the road or anywhere close to 100% of the time.
12:45
2) It does not seem unreasonable to ask a professional to leave a child at home. Who ever gets to do this.
3) I could see a 12-year-old being a distraction, especially to a player that has been diagnosed with ADHD.
4) Chemistry is a hell of a thing, and being perceived as being uncaring about a player's family situation is not a good look.
12:46
5) There are lots of children around in general, and it seems like they could have just made a rule about going on the road or something.

What role does Tony Zych end up having in the SEA bullpen?
