Don't mind me, I'm just purchasing thirty-eight Joey Rickard jerseys for all my friends and family
Eno Sarris
12:44
I mean he's a righty with very little power. Fourth/platoon OF, but could be fun enough to make the jerseys fun.

Franchise with problematic Native American name fields a team of castoffs in a scheme to tank attendance ahead of a move to a new stadium. Plot of 1980s comedy "Major League" or your 2016 Atlanta Braves?
Eno Sarris
12:45
Well done. Who's clothes we pulling off the poster?
Zorak

Adam Eaton, kind of a Brantley-light? Similar game, but without the elite K-BB numbers
Eno Sarris
12:46
Yeah, Brantley a bit more powerful exit velocity wise, also hits in ideal launch angle while Eaton is a bit all over the place in that department. And Eaton had shoulder surgery, though he claims minor. I like Eaton for 8-10 homers, 20 stolen bases, good AVG/OBP.

Rank these closers ROS: Papelbon, Rondon, and Gregerson
Eno Sarris
12:46
that order.
I used to worry about Papelbon's reduced velocity, but at some point you shrug. They using Shawn Kelley for one out at a time.
Sean
12:46
Small sample size, but guess who is tied for lead league in DRS? Chris Owings, in centerfield. Baseball is awesome.

Drop T. Bauer for Randal Grichuk?
Eno Sarris
12:46
yeah
Zorak
12:47
Ugh so who is the closer in Oakland? I thought Doolittle was looking solid, very sad to wake up and see Madson with the save
Eno Sarris
12:47
Doolittle pitched two days in a row. He's the closer and I have a piece coming out that is appreciative of the new splitter and the velocity.

Gregg Zaun says that illegal slides should be allowed and if the slides are bad players should just beat the shit out of each other. Not really a question, just want to laugh at Zaun.
Eno Sarris
12:47
WE SHOULD BEAT HIM UP! (we shouldn't beat him up.)
Erik

Interesting article by August comparing Syndergaard and Chapman yesterday. Should they both be starters? Both relievers? Or is there some key difference about them that makes it the correct decision for Thor to start and Chapman to close?
Eno Sarris
12:48
Development path.
Need to know about ludes
12:48
what the heck is a lude?
Eno Sarris
12:48
When I let you people say silly things. Like this.

Puig, destroyer of worlds hath returned, prepare yourself accordingly.

Let's just call them the Naps. Sounds racist, but isn't.

Eno's entire body is smooth as a baby's bottom
Eno Sarris
12:49
Those were literally all in a row so somehow you guys all know.

Buying the Tillman velo spike? Seems more plausible is that he knew he was likely to leave early via rain delay and that the entire bullpen was available since opening day was followed by a day off anyway.
Eno Sarris
12:49
Dude his stuff is all over the place, spin rates, velocity, everything. Last year he tried to throw a sinker and a rise ball, which nobody does. Fascinating. No idea.
Zorn

I don't really understand the concept of a rebuilding season three days in. Even if taking over an orphaned team, I see no reason why competing for title is not possible...
Eno Sarris
12:51
He might have known at the end of last season, and in some leagues, I do think rebuilding needs to happen. In my 20-teamer with 28 keepers, I keep looking at the possibility, even as I also agree with you and build to win every year and sell peripheral pieces when I don't win.

Please POWER RANK these sandwich ingredients, in terms of importance to the overall sandwich, no ties allowed: Bread, Protein, other ingredients (cheese, veggies), sauces (ketchup, aioli, etc), DIRECTION OF CUT
Eno Sarris
12:51
Protein, Sauce, Other, Bread, Cut, sorry.

If you were selling one of Nicasio or Maeda today which would it be
Eno Sarris
12:51
Nicasio.
Robin Ventura

Your thoughts on Carlos Rodon
Eno Sarris
12:53
Giddyap. The move on the rubber really did wonders for his command. His misses are closer / in the zone.
Marc

If I was more tech savvy I'd post a picture of a Ray Searage Blonde Ale I found at a 6pack shop in Pittsburgh. How many do I have to consume before Searage has me throwing 95+ and the next pirate success story?
Eno Sarris
12:53
Would be a movie.
Fred Farkle
12:53
Would you be open to a relegation system in baseball akin to the European Soccer leagues? I've been to some beautiful AAA parks and I know those fans would love a shot at a great story ala Leicester City!
Eno Sarris
12:53
I love it. Would never happen.
KC

Brinson, Kepler, Margot, in which order would you rank in terms of likeliness to have an impact this year?
Eno Sarris
12:54
Kepler Margot are close. They going to wait on Brinson because he's delicate wrt strikeouts.
