Does your strategy change in a 10-teamer vs a 14-teamer? More stars and scrubs because the scrubs are still legitimate players?
Eno Sarris
12:58
Yes, more stars and scrubs in the shallower leagues. More $70 outlays for Mike Trout.

Segura worth $17 in an NL only 12 tm 7 x7 (obp, h, sb, r, rbi, hr, xbh)?
Eno Sarris

no

Let's say another organization came calling about Ray Searage. Clearly hypothetical and contingent on many factors, but despite the different nature of trading for coaches/and front office staff as opposed to trading just players, and with the general codes of allowing staff to move/take promotions, what might an organization have to give up to pry him loose?
Eno Sarris

The Marlins already stole the minor league pitching guy, and it took a prospect. Plus a nice new title and raise for Ray.

You should come back to Chicago. Drinking beer and nerding out on baseball with random people is more fun than drinking beer and nerding out with my usual nerds.
Eno Sarris

should come in July unless I cover the all star game, but I don't really like covering the all star game. Except for the Futures Game.

Eno Sarris

Living in South Florida sucks this time of year with all the obnoxious spring breakers. Now that baseball season is coming up, this chat sucks because of all the chatters who weren't here in December are filling up the queue. I WAS HERE IN DECEMBER ENO. I'm hangry....don't mind me.
Eno Sarris

I'm here for you.

can a pitcher realistically learn a pitch in spring and develop it into an average pitch as the season progresses? I'm referencing papelbon teaching ross to throw a split.
Eno Sarris

Odorizzi picked it up super fast but is the anomaly. More likely, you see what DeSclafani did with the curve: he threw it in the AFL, then put it away for most of the season, then picked it up again some in Florida, then put it away, then it finally clicked in Cincy. I think I have that timeline right.

Turner ranked #20 3B high, low, or right on?
Eno Sarris

Low.
Shit shit shit

Eno! I forgot you guys did daylight savings in the US and we didn't do it yet here in Germany. I hope I can catch you in time, because MY LIFE DEPENDS ON IT. I've got the first overall pick in a 12-team 12 keeper draft. I've kept a full lineup on offense other than utility, plus four starters--Archer, Carrasco, Salazar, and McCullers (ugh). Common sense says I should take another starting pitcher with the first pick, like Smyly or Wacha. But my heart says AJ REED SO SEXY. Can I do like Roxette said and listen to my heart? Also: from trades at the deadline, I've got ten of my twelve picks happening in the first 48.
Eno Sarris
1:03
You have a full lineup and the first pick is an oft-injured lefty and.. well I like Wacha. Reed in that park is pretty sexy. Listen, we do this for fun, and how much fun would it be to be right on Reed and add him to your team.

Is Addison Russel worth keeping if he costs my 3rd round pick in an 18 team league?
Eno Sarris
1:04
No.
Elisa Plum

why are some sours so expensive?? $15 to $25 for a 500ml bottle!
Eno Sarris
1:04
They had to brew it (with a fruit most of the time) and then put it in a barrel (which costs) for a year before they could sell it to you.
Bart

Drop David Hernandez and handcuff Dyson with Tollesen a better strategy?
Eno Sarris
1:05
Nah, keep your toe in a bunch of waters.
Tom

Thanks on the tiers answer, but we need them sooner, before bold predictions next year. They are one of the best draft tools and we are in the middle of draft season.
Eno Sarris
1:05
I think I hear this argument for every single thing we do. I made getting rankings out a priority this year because of it. I'll remember this.
Elisa Plum

Jared Cosart was talking about how Benedict has helped him create a more downward plane with his delivery. He's always had the velocity; any chance his new delivery makes him an actualy strikeout pitcher?
Eno Sarris
1:06
Still a two-pitch guy with terrible command.
