Eno, you'll be the chatbot. Fangraphs is going to wire you directly in. Eno chats 24/7.

Whose bad start concerns you more...Rollins or Brad miller?
Eno Sarris
1:08
Well, Rollins is way older, so him.
Chatbot

Chatbot is just like Eno but instead of beer Chatbot likes hydraulic fluid.

Brad Johnson seemed convinced that Byung-ho would be moving to a part-time role very soon. Your thoughts?
Eno Sarris
1:09
It's a lot of swing and miss. He needs to make a little more contact soon. Especially with Kepler up. I'll give him a bit more time.
1:10
Oh this one is for the Arizona road unis, though it's not all about the hats
Inigo Montoya

When did you say Dyson was going to take over in Texas?
Eno Sarris
1:11
I didn't put a date on it. Just early.

How intrigued are you by Baez when he comes back? With Schwarber out and Maddon not really loving Soler, seems like he could see more PT and produce as good of numbers as a lot of full time 2B/SS.
Eno Sarris
1:11
Problem is Baez is also a righty and has many of the same issues.
Matt

Feel like you write about Reds players a lot (which is good, I'm a Reds fan, and I enjoy your work) - any particular reason or just have interesting and/or overlooked players to write about?
Eno Sarris
1:12
I think if I was tasked to build a staff on the cheap, I would've come up with their guys.
The Only Nola
1:12
Speaking of Butler, is present-day Butler "done"? The As seem like theyre giving up on him
Eno Sarris
1:12
v LHP DH is a lonely place.

Do you think Jepsen blows his chance at the closer role and it goes to May (or someone else)?
Eno Sarris
1:13
If he is, indeed, getting the first shot. The thing that is a little worrisome about May is that he's gotten two-inning stints twice, which suggests they like him as a fireman.
Nelson
1:13
Whats the advantage of guys having long at bats, wearing out the pitcher if Bullpens are even better than the starter?
Eno Sarris
1:14
The third-time through the order penalty is actually a pitch count penalty, Russ Carleton found.
Malt Man

Malty - Dogfish Head 60 Minute is a pretty damn malty IPA.
Eno Sarris
1:14
Good one.

A genie installs you as the President of an MLB franchise. The one catch is that you have to either appoint as hitting coach A) a randomly selected member of the public or B) Jose Canseco. Which choice do you go with?
Eno Sarris
1:14
Jose Canseco, man, this is an entertainment business.
Zorak

We all know the Mets are in line for some positive regression to the mean, but I think their underlying flaws are too easy to expose. High-strikeout, low OBP offense and terrible defense. The question is, where can this team make upgrades later in the season? They're locked in to such average players at C, 1B, SS, 2B, 3B and RF, with only Flores and his lifetime .286 OBP waiting in the wings.
Eno Sarris
1:15
The OBP should get better and the bullpen is easily upgradable.
Jack

Are you a little excited about Chirstian Yelich batted ball profile this early in the season so far? Cutting the ground ball% WAY WAY down so far has to be a great sign right?
Eno Sarris
1:16
Hey that is nice. Yes, that is exciting me. GB/FB is second after swing metrics, and not quite there, but it's nice to see him trying.
kevinthecomic

Is there any statistical evidence that certain players are 'streaky'? You know, a guy gets 5 homers one week and then doesn't go yard again for 2 months. Or is that just statistical noise and a guy who is streaky this year is likely to regress to more consistent next year?
Eno Sarris
1:17
Bill Petti did some research on Volatility that suggests that K% is a big source.
PK

Would you drop Nicasio for Vincent velasquez?
Eno Sarris
1:17
yes.
Bradley
1:17
Drop D. Hernandez to pick up D. Hudson for spec saves? NL only?
Eno Sarris
1:18
Hold. Not in love with Gomez, tons of balls in play.
Trainman
1:19
Kluber's velocity seems down a few ticks. Concerned?
Eno Sarris
1:19
It's one tick, and he'll get some of that back. A little worrisome because he's probably the best Bad Fastball pitcher in the majors. If it gets worse... I'd buy at number two prices, sell at number one.
Paul Westerberg
1:19
What is your take on Jimmy Nelson? Is it possible for him to improve his control--which has been somewhat of a limitation in the past?
Eno Sarris
1:20
Another year with that curve in his arsenal could do it.
