Well then.

Who has the overall advantage in cold weather: Pitchers, or hitters?
Eno Sarris
12:40
I'm working on this, but the numbers are clear: offense is down in colder weather.

I have been wondering whether, with all the new data available, there's a way to rate a player's positioning, based on how close he is, on average, to the landing/stopping/catching place of a ball hit to his part of the field. Eventually, if such a thing were to exist, it seems like it could be combined with UZR to provide a more accurate snapshot of a player's true range.
Eno Sarris
12:41
Yeah that's the future, with the StatCast data.

Desclafani, Karns, Tomlin on waivers in quirky 14 team h2h with 10 pitching cats- find a way to pick 1 up? Who? Drop an RP strickland, Jones, Zych. Or rich hill.
Eno Sarris
12:41
Zych is great but pitching mop up innings. Desclafani for him.

Thoughts on Devon Travis when he gets back? Think there will be any drop off from his brief but productive time in the line up last season?
Eno Sarris
12:42
He was surprisingly powerful and then he had a crazy surgery on his shoulder. I do think it's hard to expect the same power when he comes back.
Ryan Goins to get sent down

How long before Fangraphs writers are replaced by chat bots?
Eno Sarris
12:42
I'D LIKE TO SEE THEM BE THIS WEIRD.

The idea that we already know Syndergaard is going to have TJ is horrible. Like being tied to train tracks.
Eno Sarris
12:43
Just breathe. It'll happen to most of them.
Zorn

Chris Archer velocity down . He claims its not a big deal. Is it not or doth he protest too much?
Eno Sarris
12:44
Three starts is a big deal. If he comes out of this closer to 94, he'll be over 94 by August and it won't be a big deal.
Walt
12:44
speaking of Olivera, remind me why the Braves traded for him?
Eno Sarris
12:44
Guess they didn't think much of Peraza.
Thor

Thoughts on Hudson as next in line in Zona
Eno Sarris
12:44
Yes and one of the more decent non-Twin speculation pickups.

the class average on their third exam was 10 points lower than on their first and second. Am i a terrible teacher?
Eno Sarris
12:45
I'd look to externalities. Are they getting busy more in the warmer weather?
Jeff

Peak Royals Billy Butler an upside comp for Tyler White?
Eno Sarris
12:45
You know what? Yes.
JDogg
12:45
if the "closers for the 9th" era is officially ending, do anticipate high leverage RP's taking a huge hit in average salary?
Eno Sarris
12:46
Arbitration is trying to also reward holds, in order to avoid this.
Culito
12:46
Ok heres the situation. You are challenged to a street fight Warriors style by a guy you really really hate. You are allowed to build your gang with three current MLB players. Who do pick?
Eno Sarris
12:46
Yasiel Puig (look at the dude), Johnny Cueto (you know he'll fight dirty), and Kyle Farnsworth (judo slam).
Taveras Ghost

I feel like Odubal Herrera could be a .310 15hr/25sb guy. Put that on a better Phillies team and he's scoring 100 r.

Right?
Eno Sarris
12:47
Under on average and homers, but he's decent.
Razor Ramon

Ey yo, Eno. Who replaces Schwarber at catcher on my fantasy team: Ramos, Cervelli, Gomes, or Grandal?
Eno Sarris
12:47
Grandal.
Bone
12:47
Not sweating Granderson's start too much but what can we reasonably expect from him this year? Would you start him over Pillar if it was between the two of them for an OF spot?
Eno Sarris
12:47
Granderson an OBP play and a batting average sit for me right now.
DJ

Name the SP(s) in MLB that have better "stuff" than Thor... Please and thank you.
Eno Sarris
12:50
Max Scherzer, Clayton Kershaw, Chris Sale for sure for me, then also probably David Price, Chris Archer, Stephen Strasburg, and maybe Gerrit Cole, Carlos Carrasco. For all his velocity, other pitchers have broader arsenals.
12:51
God I had no idea my mans RJD2 did the Mad Men theme I'm a problem.
shubbles

over/under: my swizzle or my drizzle?
Eno Sarris
12:51
Never drizzle.
Bart

Eno, should I start Pineda against the Blue Jays or bench him?
