From a non fantasy perspective, whats your opinion on the Bauer to the pen news.
Eno Sarris

I'm not big on Tomlin and still suspicious of Cody Anderson. I think it's a mistake from a real-life standpoint that will be corrected as soon as the roster crunch comes and they have to send someone down.

Twins K/9 last year was 6.52. League average was like 7.8. And they just sent down Tyler Duffy with his 8.22 k/9 last year. They have a rep of not liking high k guys so I think there might be a connection. My question is ... what's the strategy here if there is a string correlation when mapped of wins to k/9? Thanks for being awesome.

I'm not sure it's as crazy as we think it is, but it does sorta look like smoke/fire. I'll be interested in Gibson, who struck out a batter per inning and has the stuff to K more, and has even said he might K more this year.

I want more reverse curveballs. Coolest pitch ever - would that literally break pitch/fx?
Eno Sarris
1:16
They'd probably be called changeups, and would be weird. But Collmenter's reverse curve was called a curve, too.

Who are you higher on among these SPs for this year only: Alex Wood, Matt Moore, DeScla, Gausman.
Eno Sarris
1:16
That order, though I like DeScla when in a bit more than Moore.
Matt

I've got my eyes on Nate Jones. Any chance the Sox crumble for the second year in a row and trade D-Rob at the deadline?
Eno Sarris
1:16
There's that chance, and injury. Nate up there among handcuffs.

Who is the boss at Fangraphs?
Eno Sarris
1:18
If you mean who wears the leather jacket, it's Podhorzer probably. If you mean who's the top man, it's David Appelman!

Eno Sarris firmly in the Bauer camp. Is that bias cuz you're buddies, or do you really think he's back in the rotation in no time?
Eno Sarris
1:19
He has good stuff. 23rd in K/9 last year. I start with stuff. I'm buddies with Dan Straily and I didn't just say he needs to start now. I'm buddies with Sam Fuld and I'm not on here talking about how he needs to be the center fielder. outta here with that crap.
DAN HAREN FOR THE HALL. come on people.

Where do I get traded to this summer?
Eno Sarris
1:20
Boston?

wait, there's an actual real life person named Socrates Brito? like, that's not a fictional character?
Eno Sarris
1:20
Real person, but the puns have already been assassinated.

I share a name with a certain relief pitcher. How many rounds early can I justify drafting him to ensure that name synergy? Also, if I somehow intercepted one of his paychecks, how illegal would it be for me to deposit it? I mean, same name, so...
Eno Sarris
1:21
Man if there was an Eno Sarris in the league...

Recently had Lady of the Night, a dry hopped sour from Seattle's Urban Family Brewing. It's brewed with Nelson and Azacca hops. Yeah.
Eno Sarris
1:21
Sounds nice.
TJ

Robert Stephenson -- good spring reports but then that clunker last time out. Think he has a chance to make an impact this year?
Eno Sarris
1:22
Something about him doesn't float my boat. Power fastball, but the breaking ball... is it enough? Not great command or change.
SK1
1:22
What do you make of James Shields? Horrible year last year, does he have a chance to bounce back? How would you order Shields, Smyly and Kyle Gibson?
Eno Sarris
1:23
Smyly Shields Gibson, but its looking like no shares of Shields for me. If he gave up all those homers in San Diego...
Rob

I have Puig ($16), Betts ($7), Blackmon ($18), and Springer ($12) and THREE outfield spots in a $300, 12-team mixed keeper league. Who should I shop and why?
Eno Sarris
1:24
No util slot? If you really can't play one of them... shoot. I'd say Puig but he's not going to bring same value. Blackmon I guess.
SK1
1:24
Do you see David Peralta taking a step forward? I'm thinking of trading Gardner for him
Eno Sarris
1:24
Not a step forward, but I believe in what he's done.

So I'm going to be doing a beer tour of microbreweries in Ottawa with a bunch of people who don't drink anything but the basic Molson Canadian. There is a large chance they will all pass off 90% of the beer for the day to me. How do I survive this day?
Eno Sarris
1:25
Water, put some down, and try to engage them on the flavors and smells so they get into it?

Why is Jorge Posada's name always at the top of the search queue?
Eno Sarris
1:25
I think someone's scraper is just using that as an entry point or getting stuck there for whatever reason.

so i ket my $1 hudson through roster freeze, zeigler has been awful this spring, but will hudson get any saves?
Eno Sarris
1:26
I have Hudson pretty high on my list of setup men that should become closers. if you judge Ziegler by the things that have traditionally been used to judge closers (velocity, k%), he's really bad. Then again, he's not traditional and he's a really good reliever most of the time.
Manuel
1:26
Most SBs at SS: Segura, C Hernandez, Ketel, Story, Turner?
Eno Sarris
1:26
Hernandez!
heh heh
1:27
yeah i hear pitchers have very little control over soft/hard --- it's because of their jock straps being a little too tight!!!!!!!!!! anybody??? anybody????
