No. Still no changeup, loses velocity and command deep in games.

Your Murphy analysis seems...strange? He's only hit two HRs this year and a ton of singles. Also, his 8 Ks in 56 PA seems pretty solid.
Eno Sarris
1:29
I mean you have to watch the games, too, and notice that going back to about halfway through last year, his pull percentage has skyrocketed. He moved closer to the plate and started pulling for power. But he doesn't have plus natural power, so that's why only two homers.

over/under, my seamus or my anus
Eno Sarris
1:30
I don't know what a seamus is but that.

i get the yips when pitching bp for my kids 6-8 y/o little league team. i'm consciously trying not to hit them and end up throwing it inside and got a couple the other day. do i need to see a sports psychologist?
Eno Sarris
1:30
Breathe, concentrate on your breathing. Hit the annoying kid.
hmmm
1:31
I feel like you're turning into a Matthew Berry type. By that I mean, kinda going for the homerunrs as opposed to giving the solid picks. Examples: Semien top 10, Dyson over Tolleson, etc. Use your amazing talents to help us put together safe winning teams, not long shots.
Eno Sarris
1:31
Except that Semien is going to be top ten and Dyson is going to take that job.
Also, don't quote my bold predictions at me as if you're supposed to follow those as gospel.
1:32
BOLD f'ing predictions. Supposed to look at the 5-10% chance stuff. And I actually still like the two you pointed out lol. The Ozuna one doesn't look so good.

Jason Grilli...like I'm at a loss, getting late opps, getting K's, getting hit...I don't know what do! I wanna drop, but I need those sweet sweet (stupid) saves!
Eno Sarris
1:32
I'm looking at dropping him in most leagues. Below average velocity suddenly, 39 years old, coming off surgery, if he's not going to have trade value...
Devin

Thoughts on Derek Law? Giants org still seems high on him, and that breaking ball looks legit (especially in his first two appearances). This could be confirmation bias of a Giants fan watching a bullpen that's in a bit of disarray though.
Eno Sarris
1:33
I love his stuff, and I know Righetti has been eagerly anticipating all these young guys with velocity, but the way Bochy works, he'll have to work his way past Strickland to even get in the convo.

What's the deal with Shelby Miller? Fixable? He's on the wire and given the concern with Liriano, should I make the switch?
Eno Sarris
1:34
Talked to all the AZ beats about this and still don't know. he's throwing a splitter now, and it *should* be good, but something isn't working with it, no whiffs so far this year. He's not at 94 any more, either. He's plummeting. Still probably above 75, and so mixed league worthy, but I'm worried about him. There's a bold prediction that's going south.

Trade Vince Velasquez For Tyler White?
Eno Sarris
1:35
No, I don't think so. White's projected power was more like 10-14 and early sample power is not a great thing to bet on.
Boof
1:35
4/5 Tyler White homers are "Just Enough" per Hittracker
Eno Sarris
1:35
Well there's something.
Keith

Pomeranz is like "a good Rich Hill", what do you mean by that exactly?
Eno Sarris
1:37
Throwing the curve almost half the time, throwing it in the zone to get strikes when they don't swing, but his fastball goes 92-93 to Hill's 90, and he can sometimes spot it.
BBK
1:38
Is there a rule preventing a batter from crouching down with his chest between his legs, in an attempt to draw walks?
Eno Sarris
1:38
It's awfully hard to hit like that!
Z
1:38
3rd times a charm, right? What Carlos Gomez will we see this year? the 2014 or 2015 version? Possibly somewhere in between?
Eno Sarris
1:39
I'm worried about his health, like the Mets doctors were. I'm thinking .250/15/20 at most.
Stan
1:39
people are sleeping on Adam Conley, Sullivan's piece a few days ago should have owners scrambling to pick him up
Eno Sarris
1:39
Or me and Sporer talking about him for months, that too.
Sal M.
1:39
Eno, no question I just wanted to say how hard it is when you have a roster full of guys you love that are off to terribly slow starts! d'Arnaud, Miggy, Rendon, J Upton, Granderson and Carlos Santana to name a few. Remind me we're only 2.5 weeks in haha
Eno Sarris
1:39
Granderson might be droppable but the rest should be good.
Padilla Eephus

Do you see Peter O'Brien up any time soon to solve the DBacks outfield identity crisis or is it too son?
Eno Sarris
1:39
Can't play center, can barely play a corner.
Peter Pan
1:40
Why do I keep seeing people talk about Domingo Santana? I look at his numbers and there's nothing exciting there.
Eno Sarris
1:40
Dripping tools, improved his plate discipline, which was the big deal problem. Breakout coming.
James
1:40
How do you believe the Royals will handle Mike Minor once he's ready to come off the DL? Do you envision him getting some second-half rotation work?
Eno Sarris
1:40
Think Medlen.
Joey

Why do homers lower babip?
Eno Sarris
1:40
They aren't considered in BABIP as a ball in play.

That Hoof Hearted IPA looks disgusting. When hazy turns into yeasty brown, I'm out.
