Velocity and movement are back, and though he's never going to be a good command guy, it's at least looking pre-injury. Low 50s type ranking now.

I stupidly held on to Nicasio in a Pittsburgh Homer league instead of trying to sell high on him. What do I do now?
Eno Sarris
12:25
Wait another start! (Still sell if he's good.)

I know what bitter and fruity taste like, but what exactly is Malty?
Eno Sarris
12:26
Have a brown ale.. malty tastes... thick and chewy and sweet.
forever it

Thoughts on Trayce Thompson's start to the year? With a strong couple weeks, will they bench him once Crawford/Van Slyke/Ethier come back?
Eno Sarris
12:28
He just doesn't make contact. Totally reminds me of Justin Maxwell. I think the Ks will come and he'll be more of a fifth OF.
Thor

Did you see me last night? Just nasty stuff. Am I a top 10 SP going forward?
Eno Sarris
12:28
Yeah those 93 mph sliders were awesome. I wish I had pushed him past 16, but I'm glad I made him a tier 1 guy.

Why does Fangraphs think that the LA bullpen is so good? There's more to success than good K and BB rate. Mistakes the Dodgers make go 400 feet because they throw flat fastballs

As mentioned to August F. on 3/29: "Whoa, check out the Nats’ April regular season schedule: Braves, Braves, Marlins, Marlins, Marlins, Braves, Braves, Braves, Braves, Phillies, Phillies, Phillies, Marlins, Marlins, Marlins, Marlins, Twins, Twins, Twins, Phillies, Phillies, Phillies, Cards, Cards. Don’t be surprised if they get out to a 'hot' start, and the national media starts fawning." It's already happening! Ha.

I picked them to win it all!

Can Aaron Nola make the jump from plus to elite command? And would that make him an ace even if the stuff stays the same? He's yet to walk anyone through two starts so the future looks good.
Eno Sarris
12:31
Largely avoided the change, which might be because he can't command it as well, so I'd like to see what happens when he starts working that back in more. Love him though.

Idk if you saw but Altuve tried a hidden ball trick by putting the ball in his back pocket. Ignoring that he was probably just doing it to mess with an old team mate, if Carter would've stepped off the bag, would Altuve have to take the ball out of his pocket to tag him, or could he have simply rubbed his butt on him? If the latter is the case, where would Altuve twerking on Carter rank on a list of best outs ever recorded?
Eno Sarris

As good as that face/butt slide last year.

Are we out of the woods with Bumgarner's Neuroma? I have seen some articles about wearing the wrong shoe size and I am wondering if that's nonsense and it's still an issue....
Eno Sarris
12:33
He says he only feels it if he thinks about it... But man, getting a pitcher to open up about injury is impossible. His release point is more consistent (good) but also different from last year (bad), his velo is still career-worst... somethings' not right.

trade: Puig for F.Hernadex. standrad 5x5. looking for big bat exchange for above avg SP. could I get more value?
Eno Sarris
12:33
I would take Puig yes.
mike
12:33
does reyes actually have any trade value at this point? between age + contract + likely incoming suspension and PR baggage, I can't think of a team that would want him.
Eno Sarris
12:33
Maybe by the end of his suspension, if they eat a ton of the money.

Do you believe the scout who said he thinks Matz needs more minor league seasoning?
Eno Sarris
12:35
I've been dropping a semi-worried lefty Andrew Cashner comp on Matz. The thing is, he worked really hard in the minors on getting his curveball up to average. Doubt he can work on that much more. His fastball is great. He claims he is good with the change, but it might just be average. Two average secondary pitches plus a great fastball is probably average, and that's less than we expect he will be.

Any chance Dietrich can get more playing time? He's done well when he gets the chance but are the Marlins cool letting Prado be the everyday guy?
Eno Sarris
12:37
He bats lefty, which is good, and can DH for them, but Prado is a plus plus clubhouse guy and not batting poorly. Hard to see that Marlins squad removing him from the role.
Jose Meowtista

Do you see trouble in Ketel Marte's future? I know it's early, but how long does an owner wait?
Eno Sarris
12:38
I always thought he was a low-powered hacker that might end up at the bottom of the order with fewer steals, but here's a reason to hold on: better than average swing and contact rates. Hold for a bit.

Why is it so easy to fall in love with the bottom of your roster?
Eno Sarris
12:38
You paid so little!

Do you see Casilla keeping the closing gig in SF for the entire season?
Eno Sarris
12:38
No.

12tm h2h mix 1DL spot. I'm currently stashing Jung Ho Kang, Devon Travis, and Pollock. Kang should be back in weeks, and have Story to cover meantime. What to do with Pollock other than continue crying in fetal position?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Drop, probably. IN the same place as a previous injury, that's not good.

Like Alex Wood against ARI today, in LA?
Eno Sarris
12:40
A little. I'm cautiously optimistic about his new arm angle, and he's home.
