Eno. What can you tell me about the effects of pitch sequence on the effectiveness of each individual pitch.
Eno Sarris
12:32
You can improve your swinging strike rate by as much as 3.8% by pairing the right pitches in the right order. http://www.hardballtimes.com/the-effects-of-pitch-sequencing/

Hello. Regular season soon. Goodbye.

whoohoo!

brito roto relevant if he gets 500 ABs?
Eno Sarris
12:33
That means Tomas v LHP only, which is super possible, given how chunky that dude is and how bad his plate approach is. I like him more than Tomas, mostly because the price is lower, too.

Are you holding onto any Cashner shares? Home starts only?
Eno Sarris
12:34
I've bought a couple. I'd like to see him throw more of his secondary stuff to keep people off his fastball.

bold prediction for Cody Anderson
Eno Sarris
12:34
Makes three starts this year.

Think Drew Storen will get more than 20 holds this year assuming he stays setup all year?
Eno Sarris
12:34
Him and Cecil make a good 1-2 punch.

Hey Eno, could you see Joe Ross being more valuable than Yordano Ventura this season? Would you take one over the other right now?
Eno Sarris
12:35
In my heart, Joe Ross is moving up and Ventura is moving down. I can't yet take Ross over Ventura, who made some strides late last year, but given their prices, waiting for Ross makes more sense to me now. I've done that.

In a daily league where reverse SP/RP's hold some value .. RP's that can be used in SP slots to collect holds. In this case, do you like Bauer or May better to collect holds and rack up k's?
Eno Sarris
12:36
May because I think he'll be in pen all year. He's the best SP/RP.

Hi Eno - Do you want Shane Greene or Kyle Gibson for the back of your staff in 15-team H2h 5x5? thanks!
Eno Sarris
12:36
Gibson first.

Loved your THT article on ballpark food. Always nice to remember how lucky I am with Citi Field, and now they're adding the chicken sandwiches from Fuku which are ::flame emoji::. Doing a similar one for beer?
Eno Sarris
12:37
Yes, actually, doing an E-book for BeerGraphs that's the same thing but a little spruced up. It's behind schedule, naturally, because life.

The NSF rejected my research proposal to see if a bird in he hand is truly worth two in bush.

Hey Eno, sorry I'm late...I was out fighting crime
Maxamuz

I'm getting tired of waiting for guys to be put on the DL in fantasy leagues.
Eno Sarris
12:38
yah.
TP for my Byung Ho
12:38
Odorizzi over Pineda??? You have Pineda ranked way higher. Anyway I have both
Eno Sarris
12:39
I'm telling you, these chats are very interesting for those moments. Pineda makes me nervous in the way Tanaka should. Nervous enough to put the Yankees out of the playoffs in my predictions.

Who ends up closing in SF this year?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Strickland most saves.

Cody Anderson has 15 Ks in 18 spring innings. Thats not a better strikeout rate than previously?
Eno Sarris
12:39
It is but it ain't no Harvey.

Hey could you look at this pitching stat I just threw together? (K%-BB%) + (Soft%-Hard%)รท2. I'm a simpleton so any thoughts/insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, and keep it sexy Eno!
Eno Sarris
12:40
It's great. The only problem is that pitchers have very little control over soft/hard, at least when judged by year to year stickiness and stabilization rates.
Reginald Denton III
12:40
So Andrew Miller is going to try to *play through* the injury? You think he can do that?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Apparently the bone is not important.

Any ideas how to trade for great but not impossible to find beers like Treehouse, pseudoSue, ect, if I dont have much in my cellar and my available local beers arent really desired?
Eno Sarris
12:41
I've actually done some trading of beers I traded for... there's also travel and family.

What's so good about Eickhoff?
Eno Sarris
12:42
Elite level breaking ball. If the change doesn't work great, the second breaking ball looks good. Needs slightly better command than he's shown this spring.
Chris Bosh
12:42
Weekly Sam Dyson check-- Is he actually behind Wilhelmsen and Kela like the Bullpen Report says? Or do you see that being updated in the near future?
Eno Sarris
12:42
I'll yell at them. Or not. I don't see that as true.
