If there really is a trend to move away from "closers for the ninth inning" will there be a fantasy trend toward saves+holds?
Eno Sarris
12:16
I think it's here already!

The $60 mil contract for Hector Olivera looking more and more like a disaster, isn't it? It's not like he was wowing us before this incident.
Eno Sarris
12:17
That and Rusney's contract were always my bets for the tide turning on Cuban signees.

Is Allen Craig a good comp to Tyler White?
Eno Sarris
12:17
White more walks.

Mesoraco is only 2/19 to start the year but somehow has a 100% z-contact rate and only 2.3% sw-strike. He's also chasing pitches out of the zone a lot less. Is this a sign that he's taking a much better approach at the plate and has been unlucky or am I reading into these too much?
Eno Sarris
12:17
Swing metrics are the very first to become stable. That's absolutely where you should be looking now, if anywhere.

Eno Sarris: Now bringing an inappropriate amount of sexy to your Wednesday
Eno Sarris
12:18
I'll tell you this: I don't feel very sexy right now, unless sexy is disheveled and leering at the pillow.

Best beer from the Deep South?
Eno Sarris
12:18
Do the Carolinas count? Because then Wicked Weed's sours. Also *really* like Tropicalia from Creature Comfort.

Being an East Coaster (Pittsburgh) Is it ok that my favorite brewery is southern tier? They dont make too many Awesome beers but everything ive tried from IPAs to Stouts have been at the very least extremely solid (with an exception for the fiancees purchase of the Creme Brulee, terrible beer)
Eno Sarris
12:19
There are two ways for a brewery to be excellent: One is to never disappoint. The other is to have one or two amazing beers. I would keep looking for the third kind, the very best in the world: they do both.

Eno, do you think that Tropeano sticks with the big club this season and, if so, what do you think his numbers are like?
Eno Sarris
12:20
Strikeout per inning, .8+ HR/9, 3.6-3.8 ERA, good WHIP.

Would you drop Kyle Gibson for John Lamb or Erasmo Ramirez?

Hi from Quebec Eno ! New fan of fangraphs and the podcast !!
Eno Sarris
12:21
C'est incroyable!
Marc

I love Caminero, you love Caminero, but doesnt it seem like he should be K-ing more people with that effortless 102 heater and nasty (when on) slider? What would it take for him to get in the 11-12 range at the very least instead of last years 8.8?
Eno Sarris
12:21
Better second piece I guess.
Jake
12:22
Would you be actively shopping Felix?
Eno Sarris
12:22
More actively shopping Bumgarner.

Has Charlie Blackmon turned into a platoon player?
Eno Sarris
12:22
They've been doing this off and on with him for a while. I doubt it's strict.
Sean Doolittle
12:22
thanks for giving me the bad voodoo last night on twitter!
Eno Sarris
12:22
Yeah, my b.

What are you looking for in my start today? Perhaps my catcher to set up ON the plate in 3 ball counts? Because it seems like I can paint fairly decently with my fastball.
Eno Sarris
12:23
I think he was getting squeezed a bit. But fastball command is key because he has the secondary stuff and he's not going to add much velo, it looks like.
Jake
12:23
Do you have a favorite pitcher to watch?
Eno Sarris
12:24
Max Scherzer? So many really great pitches.
Josh

Eno, I've been reading your (somewhat dire-sounding) warning signals regarding Bumgarner. Wondering if I should trade Bumgarner and Chris Carter for Votto in an OBP league. According to Depth Charts, I'd be giving up a lot more value, but is the concern about Bums serious enough to justify it?
Eno Sarris
12:24
If you can get an interesting pitcher back in the deal, you get the best player in Votto and a nice landing spot if the pitcher works out.
Manuel

What's your take on Matt Moore?
