Are you feeling more optimistic on Derek Holland? He's looked good in the early going
Eno Sarris
1:21
His changeup is not good and his velocity is no longer as good as it was.
Gary Busey
1:21
You aren't that weird.
Eno Sarris
1:21
well... you are.

Is everyone out of Story puns?
Eno Sarris
1:22
It's an inconTREVORtible fact.

Mets odds of winning the NL East already down to 33%. Why are people saying it's
early?
Eno Sarris
1:22
Because of the wild card and the seven games thing.

chase anderson, looked good first start, know he was a sleeper, what say you?
Eno Sarris
1:23
Still has a plus change, above-ave curve, ave fastball, so it's about command. I like him, obviously a little bit less in Milwaukee, but Arizona is not Valhalla for Pitchers.

Will the Indians ever play against a right handed pitcher? My man Naquin needs some at bats!
Eno Sarris
1:24
so glad I sold him.

I'm in a 30 team dynasty going through a nasty rebuild. One offer is My Thor for Giolito + McMahon + Taylor Guer... thoughts?
Eno Sarris
1:24
Nah. Bat piece needs to be better IMO. How long until you are good, won't Thor still be good?
My Byung Ho needs some TP
1:24
what he said
Eno Sarris
1:25
I'm 14.

What's this "Harvey slider velo down" thing? Is he done?
Eno Sarris
1:25
I'ts down to... 88
1:26
I'm fairly chill about Harvey's issues. I dont' see a smoking gun. Just needs to improve the command a bit.

Why does Khris Davis not strike the baseball with his baseball bat regularly
Eno Sarris
1:26
Always had a fair amount of swing and miss in his game.
Pat

I know it's early, but given how Daniel Murphy has been performing since the postseason.. would you contribute his performances for what I'd say is a change in his approach or just some continuous streak of luck? He's walking more, striking out more, and hitting for more power, which sounds like a major change in approach from his high contact rate and doubles days prior
Eno Sarris
1:27
As you get older, you pull more, and it's a (temporary) source of power. Usually pitchers adjust.

my friends keep telling me that wins aren't a great evaluator of talent, am i an idiot for thinking they are?
Eno Sarris
1:27
Not an idiot, over really long periods, they okay. But Aaron Small went 12-0 for the Yankees and was no bueno.
Pete
1:28
What are your thoughts on Nate Karns, both this season and long-term? I don't know what to make of him.
Eno Sarris
1:28
Short term I really like him. Change is finally a legit third piece. 28 and in Seattle. Longer term.. he's older than you might think, and how long is he going to be in Seattle, seems a movable piece if they suck.
Jung Ho Kang
1:29
i sucked over my first 25 AB's, did you see what i did last year? so everyone should leave my friend Park alone....
Rougned
1:29
Odor been stinking up the joint. April, or was last year's 2nd half smoke?
Jack
1:29
At what point is it ok to cut ties with a big prospect like Buxton who is struggling? You drafted him, so you want to be patient, but 11 K's in 22 AB's is all sorts of bad.
Eno Sarris
1:29
Put this in the 'wait some more' bin.
Gregor
1:29
No way all those pitchers have better stuff than Thor
Eno Sarris
1:29
We going to have to define stuff, aren't we, which is maybe my life's work.
Dave

Shields and Nola are surprising available. Drop Sanchez or Smyly for either of them?
Eno Sarris
1:30
No but I'd love to find another way to get Nola.
Tooty

Whats the best way to handle the guy in your league that is constantly sending downright disrespectful trade offers? People have already called him out but he continues to do it and I'm tired of declining them.
Eno Sarris
1:30
Ignore the first offer, don't stoop to his level, think of a trade you would do, respond, move on. Don't let him get to you.
Steve
1:31
Can Verlander be a top 25 guy with such diminished velocity?
Eno Sarris
1:32
Wow. Ouch. 91.7? That's barely average for a righty. I didn't know it was down so much. He's got a lot of good pitches still, but he's 33 and this velocity has been dropping for a while. Doubt he's top 25. Top 50.
