The Phillies are over .500! That must mean they suck at everything, even tanking, right? Are they being decent in any way that's actually sustainable?
Eno Sarris
12:01
Hey I love their staff, loved it from the beginning. Eickhoff, Nola, Velasquez, Franco... Franco... and eventually JP Crawford! They have some decent pieces and will have some money to spend. Their rebuild won't take forever.

Has your opinion of Rich Hill changed any since last week? I sat him for his past two starts and boy did he make me pay for that. And now I see he's atop the leaderboard for most-improved pitcher projections?
Eno Sarris
12:03
Yeah but, watching it, I don't get it. He relies on throwing a curveball half the time, and in the zone more than anyone, so to some extent he's relying on non-swings. Has no fastball command, so there will be games with five or six walks. He's super risky to me. And I haven't even gotten into the injury risk.

So after spending time with the padres what did you learn about them? Other than the fact that they are going to be terrible this year.
Eno Sarris
12:03
oh holy heck. I almost didn't go into the park. Scanning that team, they are not only bad, they are boring. What's the story? BJ Upton is okay again! Wil Myers is the best thing about that team.

Early season fun fact: Ricky Nolasco's K-BB% is better than Chris Sale's!
Eno Sarris
12:04
And K-BB is the best in-season predictor! And Nolasco has actually made a fundamental change! I still don't believe.

What do I do with Rusney Castillo and Hector Olivera in a dynasty league?
Eno Sarris
12:05
I'm so close to cutting the two shares of the former I have left, and I never had a share of the latter. Still waiting for a trade for Rusney.
Johnny Bench
12:05
Who's the better bet ROS, Matt Wieters or Russell Martin? Are you worried about either?
Eno Sarris
12:05
A little more worried about Wieters because he's not playing back to back games, I don't think.

Jose Altuve HR total over/under: 22
Eno Sarris
12:06
Projections have him at like 17, I have him for over 20, but 22 is a bit aggressive.

What does my son have to do to get a FG piece addressing his world-peace inspiring start? What do I have to do? ;)
Eno Sarris
12:06
If one hasn't published yet, it will soon, and two authors actually claimed that piece, so your son is in good hands.

Should anyone other than Jepsen and May be owned in the Twins bullpen? Seems like both have struggled since Perkins went down.
Eno Sarris
12:07
I trust May's stuff a bit more, but Jepsen owns the role for now. Fien is only okay.
Sid
12:07
Thoughts on Tropeano so far? Think he'll stick in the Angels' rotation all season?
Eno Sarris
12:08
I do, and Shoemaker is making it easier to cut him when other guys get healthy.
Mike
12:08
You've touched on all 3 of these guys but haven't heard a definitive rankings yet...Gausman, Berrios, Manaea - rank em in a redraft league please?
Eno Sarris
12:09
You've got it. Berrios didn't have a great start and I actually see what they were talking about a little with command, but Berrios' curve is nicety, and that team needs him. I think the A's will monkey around. I could be wrong! But those young arms are both interesting.
David
12:09
Tell me something good about the A's so far
please Eno
Eno Sarris
12:10
Their bullpen is better! Semien looks like he's got his power stroke! Crisp isn't burnt to a crisp like I thought he was! Graveman is legit! They've got better play left in them and they aren't stinking it up... every night!

Tyler Collins has been sent down. In related news, I had no idea Tyler Collins existed before this week.
Eno Sarris
12:10
And then he flipped you off!
Jordan

28 years old. 68.1% F-Strike. 14.1% Swinging Strikes. 2.62 SIERA. His name is Jhoulys Chacin. Will you help fuel my excitement for him?
Eno Sarris
12:11
He can use his curve again! He told me had to put that away in Coors. I think that's a big thing for his swinging strikes. I'm buying in deeper leagues for sure.

When it comes to FG and Pitchf/x zone% in evaluating potentially injured pitchers, which one do you look to more? JZimm pointed out that Hamels (who I'm looking to acquire) looks injured in his PAIN values, but FG zone% looks consistent for the past three years around 44%, while Pitchf/x shows a big drop from 47% in 2015 to 41.5% this year. Whaddya think?
Eno Sarris
12:12
I like PFx zone% because it's regimented. Try the Pitcher Injury Facotrs on Baseballheatmaps.com

eno! in a 16-teamer, h2h, 6x6, am i holding odorizzi and chen? are they streamers? drop for berrios? still haven't figured out the right pitching strategy in this league—i have an arrieta/thor/rondon core.
Eno Sarris
12:13
Hold them.

In the White Sox post from a few days ago, I was amazed to see that the Mets pitching staff has been underperforming their FIP by quite a bit, even with Harvey struggling. This season is going to be a lot of fun.
Eno Sarris
12:13
One thing: the Mets defense... is not good.
Thom

How long you think Street is out for with the oblique?
Eno Sarris
12:14
He usually manages 50 innings or so, so I think he'll be out what the doctors say. I know Joe Smith is next there, but he's not a full-year closer. Just a fill-in.
Tom
12:14
Giles worth a pickup in my league? Categories include saves, K/9, era, whip
Eno Sarris
12:14
Yes, as long as you not dropping a closer or a good starter.
