John Jaso, worst hair in the bigs? does anyone else come close?

We have differing opinions on dreads, I guess. I love them. Now, I do prefer Jose Reyes' cleaner ones, but I love different.

What's your outlook for Kenta Maeda now that you have seen him pitch state side?
Eno Sarris
1:34
Command is really good, especially of that slider. Velocity is not good. Change and curve... still not very good. But maybe representative. I'll give him NL average, which is pretty good.

Your profile on Tropeano’s player page says he pairs his change with 4 seam and rarely throws a 2 seam, but pitch f/x looks like he ditched the 4 seam for 2 seam in 2015. Do you know anything about that change and would it support his improved yet small MLB sample last year and this year?
Eno Sarris
1:35
Be very wary of PITCHf/x 4s vs 2s. Brooks has Tropeano not throwing a sinker in 2015, and they work pretty hard on looking at each pitcher separately.

Would you trade Ventura and Hamels for Danny Salazar? I can pick up Nola for example, so it would be like Ventura and Hamels for Salazar and Nola. Thanks baby
Eno Sarris
1:36
Yes, and thanks for telling me what the empty slot would net. that helps a ton.

Are you buy this new 10K/9 Volquez? Or is the other shoe dropping any second?
Eno Sarris
1:37
I don't understand it at all.

Just uttering the phrase "man card" should subject you to a life of Coors Light.

Type 1 vs Type 2 Human Error in regards to missing calls. I think some umps are secretly in on a plot working towards being replaced with robots. This story has legs. Call Tom Hanks in to investigate. I know you have connections.

not bad people.

What does the first baseman say to the batter when they get on base? Always wondered what the two are always talking about while on the bases.
Eno Sarris
1:38
I've asked around a bit, and they don't really think about what they say. Not trash. Mostly just what's up.

Who is baseball's northeast IPA? Hazy and juicy?
Eno Sarris
1:38
Someone like Puig, who is enjoyable, but some people hate it, especially old-schoolers.

Who is baseball's Mosaic hop? Pissy in the boil, but a cornucopia of aromas late in the game?
Eno Sarris
1:39
Juan Uribe?

I'm about to go back to plain Sculpin. They've been messing around too much.
Eno Sarris
1:39
Agreed.

Vin Scully's digression on Socrates during Brito's at-bat: ::strikes out:: "he drank the hemlock"

Several O's players have seen 5-7% reductions in O-swing% so far this season (Trumbo, Hardy, Davis, Schoop). How long before we can say this is a real shift in approach?
Eno Sarris
1:40
Swing rate takes 50 PA, and that's diced up, so a little bit longer.

Mychal Givens struck out 4 guys on Monday with what seemed like a sidearm "riseball." Like O'day's, but thrown at 94-97 MPH...
Eno Sarris
1:41
Yeah he's deceptive. He holds his hand above his arm slot so he can get cut and rise.
Ricky

You're weird for not answering my question. Help me make a speculative pickup: Any of Giolito, Berrios, Urias, De Leon or Glasnow up within the next month or two?
Eno Sarris
1:41
Twins look closer to panicking and Pelfrey so bad. Berrios.

Man, the population of Beergraphs is WAY more into the whole bourbon (barrel) craze than I am, particularly for stouts. You a huge fan? I find the alcohol starts to get too out of control and I really prefer my beer tasting like beer, not a hybrid.
Eno Sarris
1:42
That's Untappd data, and yeah it's a craft-beer wide thing. I've been slowly digging them more, but it takes a different mindset. Like drinking Port.

Please explain your "bad fastball" criteria.

Below-average movement and velocity first and then swSTR and GB next. Kluber's velo was okay, but his movement has always been less than average, and his results below average on the sinker. Which was better than his four-seam, which he turfed, and is now bringing back.
Lil Mook

Could you give a quick overview of swing metrics and what are the key things to be looking at?
Eno Sarris
1:44
Right now, just look at swing%. That'll get your O-swing guys, but the denominator is bigger. Swinging less is not always great, but I think it's usually good for crazy free-swingers.

If you hollow out them middle and put cream cheese and bacon inside, yes.
