I've softened a bit on Ziegler, because he's a unicorn. Numbers say that new closers have more velocity and Ks than the guy they replace, but Ziegler is so weird, he might keep it. Hudson is next for me though.

Why zero confidence in Tolleson?
Eno Sarris
12:33
Very average, already replaced in a big spot. Last year was first time he had above-average K for a reliever, average velocity. Any drop, and he has to be Soria to stay in the role.

I hate to be fantasy question guy but this is killing me. Points keeper league. Can keep Jose Bautista for a first or Starling Marte for a 5th. Can I not keep Bautista?
Eno Sarris
12:33
Marte.

I've heard some positive reports out of Tiger camp about Matt Boyd's slider. They say he's added some velocity to it, and now has it in the upper 80s.Have you had a chance to look at him this spring? Seems intriguing if he fills that 5th slot coming out of spring.
Eno Sarris
12:33
He's good, but I think late game lefty reliever good. Some problems keeping velocity.

Any sleeper third basemen you like in fantasy this year? I currently have Jake Lamb, who you have big predictions for, but is there anyone else you would recommend?
Eno Sarris
12:34
Castellanos, Suarez.

Do you see John Lamb in the Majors immediately when healthy?
Eno Sarris
12:34
yeah. Great DL stash.

Mark Appel do anything with his oppurutnity this year?

I'm not hopeful.

Went to Portland, ME last week. Visited 7 of the breweries: Rising Tide, Oxbow, Shipyard, Liquid Riot, Bissell Brothers, Foundation and Allagash. You are all jealous. Liquid Riot makes this "white stout" which is delicious. And a raspberry sour. But Bissell Brothers made some pretty delicious beers as well.

Donaldson or Correa with the 6th pick in standard league?
Eno Sarris
12:37
Donaldson. Scarcity overrated in standard leagues.

The first American League rookie OF to be called up AFTER OPENING DAY and make an impact will be ____________?
Eno Sarris
12:37
Mazara?

Is a guy like Cueto with a "trickster" repertoire more likely to age well since he's not as reliant on pure power to get outs?
Eno Sarris
12:37
On the other hand, all those deliveries are hard to keep in check.

What makes you think you have better hair than me?
Eno Sarris
12:39
More conditioner? I wish I had his body though. Hair body. Well, I mean he's a big dude too.

Is Lincecum ever having his showcase?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Not a good sign.

as a player, would you rather deal with a child or mimes in the clubhouse?

Who will be this year's AJ Pollock? Gerrardo Parra maybe?
Eno Sarris
12:41
You have to define Pollock first. He was an okay right-handed prospect that was defense first and figured something out against righty pitchers to be better than expected. That's actually super rare and I wouldn't call for it to happen again.

Eno, why do you think left handed hitters are so bad against lefties? One theory I always hear is that kids don't face enough lefties when they are younger. If that is the case, should natural lefties learn to hit right handed at a young age?
Eno Sarris
12:42
One other theory, and I think it makes a lot of sense, is that it's just hard to see the lefty release point with two eyes as a lefty. You see guys like Adam LaRoche opening up to look straight at the pitcher, but even LaRoche admitted that meant his swing had more moving parts.
