sometimes when you get down in this business you just have to have a center, a calming soothing thing, and yesterday this was that thing for me

How could the author of this weeks very good changeup piece be got down?
Eno Sarris
12:03
By a little gremlin that finally got rid of his ear infections only to have his teeth bother him from 4:30 on this morning? Woof.

Looming question--must know before league mates: Jepsen or May?
Eno Sarris
12:04
I think it might be May! Jepsen has been worse so far, May has been used right before him, and the last close game, it was May that finished the game. He seems to have more strikeouts in the bullpen, and velocity and handedness are about the same.

Any chance that Mallex Smith could lead the NL in steals? Seems like a Billy Hamilton type who can actually get on base.
Eno Sarris
12:06
Billy has more speed and should have more power, which is slightly irrelevant here considering their relative power levels. I would say there's some PT risk for Smith, but Hector Olivera just got popped for domestic abuse, so even when Inciarte comes back, there'll be time for him.

Any pitchers emerge early on that have you intrigued?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Finnegan, Velasquez most of all.
Cubbie
12:07
Finnegan had a great game against the Cubs. But can a game plan where he throws so many change-ups work long term?
Eno Sarris
12:07
I think it was just a SURPRISE! moment.
Enzo Amore

Hey Eno! In a 10 tm Roto, would you rather trade away Tanaka for Kimbrel if you had the depth at SP? Or drop Soler for Doolittle? I need another CP.
Eno Sarris
12:07
Soler for Doolittle.

Are the White Sox for real? I wouldn't mind seeing them signing Daniel Murphy if Garcia continues to struggle. Plus, if seems they would like another left-handed bat.
Eno Sarris
12:08
I liked them going in. David Murphy? Might be a good idea.

Am i going to lose my job to jose reyes soon, or in 4 to 6 weeks?
Eno Sarris
12:08
Rox are crazy enough to make a point about this and trade Reyes before he plays a game for them, I guess.

Eno on Wednesday? What is this? Do we get 2 days of ludes this week??
Eno Sarris
12:09
Not unless D Cam has changed it up since last I checked. He's going tomorrow. Travel schedule!

Should I drop socroties britto in dynasty league or sit on him?
Eno Sarris
12:10
This is about who he is, I think.

Hooray for Jake Lamb. Hooray for Raisel. Hooray for Velasquez. All hail the picks of Eno!!! Now let's talk about Liam Hendriks... woof. Be patient or cut bait?
Eno Sarris
12:11
They not using him late in close games, and his velocity is a bit down... if you trying to get saves, I think you could let him go. Madson is next in line for now.
Erik
12:11
Is there anyone in the league with a more fascinating set of neuroses than Lester? A pitcher who can't throw a pickoff or an intentional walk is a wonderful absurdity.
Eno Sarris
12:11
It's delightful.

Re: your piece yesterday on pitchers...I had a few questions on the deGrom part in particular.

I know you mention that deGrom has the command and movement to survive a velocity drop. How long do you anticipate a drop lasting though? Is this the type of thing he’ll likely struggle with all year given the fatigue from the long postseason run and resulting short offseason? If it’s likely to last all year, should we expect a velocity rebound next year? Or is it possible it never fully bounces back? When you said "soft landing at lower velocities" it kinda scared me because it had the sound of "it might never be back". But I know literally nothing about this so I thought I'd ask.
Thanks Eno!
Eno Sarris

He should get a mph over the course of the season, so he should end the season averaging over 92. that's still short of 93.5 (2014) or 95 (2015). Pitchers don't usually put on velocity, but in his case, I'll give him another start or two before I hang this velo on him.

And people said that hashtag was dead.

It seems like everyone is waiting for Syndergaard to get TJ because Harvey, Fernandez, etc. before him were all hard throwers and needed it. But, Verlander was also a young flamethrower and his elbow is still in tact. Is Verlander just a freak? Could Synd also be a freak, or do you think TJ is inevitable?
Eno Sarris
12:14
I think he'll have the surgery eventually. He's already had some bouts of forearm tightness.

With Semien heating up the last few days and the rest of the A's lineup stinking up the joint, the A's have to move him up the lineup at least against lefties right?
Eno Sarris
12:15
I'm surprised about that. I wonder if it's related to defense, that he's lower in lineup because he's likely to be replaced by a lesser bat for more glove.

Corey dickerson, power looks good. Is he going to hit 25 hrs and inmy end up with 60 rbi ?
Eno Sarris
12:15
Both things totally possible!

Ken giles... now what?
Eno Sarris

Hold.

I'm getting pretty excited about Adam Warren's role on the Cubs based on his first two appearances. I know that he has had good peripherals and that the Cubs thought highly enough of him that they were willing to trade Castro for him straight up. ZIPS also loved him heading into this year. What is it about Warren that makes the Cubs and ZIPS so optimistic about his abilities?
Eno Sarris
12:16
Two really good secondary pitches and a fastball that plays up in the pen. I still think he'll get to 100+ innings with some spot starting.
