Has Taijuan finally found his ideal pitch mix? What kind of line do you see from him this year- 25% K, 5% bb, 3.5FIP possible?
Eno Sarris
12:33
I think he was going to throw these pitches if he could get ahead more, so I think the count is the most important thing for him. I'm not sure we can't believe that 5% BB rate.

The Pod and Sporer painted two different pictures when writing about Pineda recently. The K%-BB% is very impressive, but are you buying his BABIP is based on bad luck or being easy to hit in the zone? I am leaning towards the latter.
Eno Sarris
12:35
When he misses, he misses bad. And though his velocity is good, it's not otherworldly and he's in the AL in a hitter's park. I believe Zips more than Steamer.

Apparently the White Sox have had the least generous strike zone (worst pitch framing) yet they still are pitching incredible...Explanation?
Eno Sarris
12:35
Good pitching!

How would you rank Conley, Rich Hill, Severino and Wei Yin Chen? You da bess.

Conley Chen Hill Severino
Not in a dynasty. That would be Severino Conley Chen Hill.

A friend tells me that this is Hunter Dozier's walkup song, which means that Hunter Dozier is probably pretty chill.

Who is more likely to turn it around fastest: Howie Kendrick, Freddie Freeman?
Eno Sarris
12:38
Freddie.

Gimme all you got on Cody Reed.
Eno Sarris
12:38
Votto thinks he's awesome, the slider is legit, the velocity is good. Need more views to see if he's got full package.

He's coming for the crown.

Arquimedes Caminero and Jumbo Diaz were among your favorite pre-season sleeper saves candidates. Partially based on your recommendations, I bought both. Very deep 12 team NL only league (12 pitchers, 5 man reserve). Still worth stashing on reserve or cut bait?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Cut Diaz. Caminero? Command is missing right now. I still have some love for him.

Have you seen anything with Iwakuma that would be cause for a concern?
Eno Sarris
12:40
He's a walking injury.

Do you believe in Derek Law over Hunter "bombs away" Strickland yet?
Eno Sarris
12:41
Law came into the game as the first pitcher after Samardzija in his last game and Bochy said they'd use him in the 'seventh, eighth, sixth, whatever, he's one of our guys.' I like Law, but I don't think he's ahead... yet.

"Quintana" translates to "unhittable letter high fastball": T /F?
Eno Sarris
12:42
He's got good command of it! And a good curve. Interested to see how long this lasts.
(not in terms of this season, I mean more in terms of a career)

Aledmys Diaz doth not care for your "BABIP" nonsense
Eno Sarris
12:42
That's pretty much what Yelich was saying to me.

So... how does this work? Do I talk first?
Eno Sarris
12:42
You're doing fine. It's me that just got to the questions submitted at noon.
Brett
12:43
Listening to the show yesterday, you indicated last nights start was important for Kazmir with the velocity and the curve. Did you see what you were looking for?
Eno Sarris
12:44
eh. Looks like he's a 90 mph guy now. At least he's a lefty. That's only slightly below average velocity. I say he's a half-time pitcher in 12-teamers.
Dave
12:44
Any thoughts on Tropeano? Swinging strike rate up so far.
Eno Sarris
12:45
Throwing the fastball less, which is why the walk rate is up, too. I think he'll settle in around 8+k/9, 3bb/9, 1 hr/9. That should be good for a high-threes ERA and usefulness in most leagues deeper than 12 teams.
