What kind of line does DevTravis post when he comes back? Worried about the shoulder
Eno Sarris
12:46
Yeah you have to think that'll hurt his power, which was already (possibly) overachieving.

A few weeks ago, I sold high on Joey Rickard (got Betances back), but wait—DID I sell high? Or is he for realsy?
Eno Sarris
12:48
Hasn't yet had a week with even average exit velocity, has a long history of no power before last year, so I think that will go away and leave him with an empty mediocre batting average.

Who will finish the year with more ABs in Chicago, Soler or Javier Baez?
Eno Sarris
12:49
Been talking about this with all my Chicago friends. Some insist Soler is the starter in LF, but I've seen Bryant out there too much to be comfortable. Brain says Baez, gut still loves my mans Soler and his drippy tools.

Under the radar KBS tasting next week in NJ, jealous much? You guys going to do a meetup in NYC that weekend you're coming to the Staten Island event? Missed out on the VIP tix.
Eno Sarris
12:50
Yah we will have a meetup. Probably that Saturday afternoon/evening. Thinking Rattle N Hum maybe.

Wild guess on how many HRs Yasmany Tomas will hit this year?
Eno Sarris

23.7

Was cashner actually mad at you, or just joking around
Eno Sarris

Hard to tell. He seemed surprised, like it had never occurred to him. He loves his fastball, he tinkers with the breaking ball. So it surprised him, and he didn't really like it. But that fastball is less than it should be, IMO.

Carlos Martinez fair return for Charlie Blackmon?
Eno Sarris
12:52
Sure.

12:53
expectations for guys like Homer Bailey and McCarthy returning this year? assuming not much, hoping one can be a fantasy asset by August after a rough month back.
Eno Sarris
12:53
McCarthy's road back seems less pothole-ridden.

How should I stream these pitchers for a 12 team roto? Kazmir Samardzja and Velasquez. Everytime I put them in they get blownup.
Eno Sarris
12:54
Vv is a starter. The other two I'd basically start at home at night.

Holy Justin Smoak's BABIP, batman! Maybe Dominguez deserves to take over!

Tried Night Shift Belafonte (saison) for the 1st time last summer and thought it was meh. Your recommendations (as well as others) convinced me to give them a 2nd chance and boy am I glad I did. Everything else I've had from them has been fantastic. I'd say only a notch below Treehouse/Trillium (which is not a knock)
Eno Sarris
12:54
I liked the Belafonte! But yeah Night Shift is good.
Tim

Yo you think Gerrit Cole has another gear in him? Just watching his last start looks like he's mixing in his changeup a lot more this year.
Eno Sarris
12:55
I've always thought he'd be even better if he started throwing his secondary stuff more. But the Pirates are very fastball-centric.
Zorn
12:56
What do you make of Patrick Corbin thus far? Reason for concern?
Eno Sarris
12:56
He was throwing his crappy changeup too much, but in the last game, he didn't throw one. I'd like to see what he does with his old pitching mix back.

Do you guys ever barter/trade topics? Like if Jeff claims a topic one day and you don't see it, then you independently come up with the same idea the next day and are super excited about it, but then check the topics list and see he's already claimed it. Are you ever like, "hey, Jeff, how about you write about Y instead of X, and if you do I'll give you this shiny muffin."?

I feel like the best topic generators of the bunch could build up a pretty good muffin collection.
Eno Sarris
12:57
No muffins have ever changed hands, but we do run into discussions a bit like this.

You buying Tillman? The velocity uptick looks legit, the curve looks more consistent, and watching him, the eye test just tells me he looks more in command of his stuff.
Eno Sarris
12:59
Yeah man, he's holding this stuff and he's turning a trick that few turn: he's got a rising four-seamer and a sinker now. I'll buy, though cautiously in twelvers.

In real life, is Carson exactly like you would expect him to be based upon his writings?
Eno Sarris
12:59
Pretty much. We ooze ourselves through the words we choose.

Sever severino? I think its time. He needs to get his confidence back.
Eno Sarris
1:00
The slider hasn't been good yet. The change was good, now it's not as good. It's good to bet on velocity like that, but he needs to do more with those secondary pitches. We good?

Huge Guinness fan here. What can I try that you thin is a step up? Low IBU, creamy, and coffee

Speedway Stout from AleSmith.

so i kind of really need hudson to start closing games. think thats something you can make happen?
Eno Sarris
1:01
*Usually* velocity and K-rates matter for closing situations, but Ziegler is weird.
John

What do you do with underperforming veterans like Wainwright, Verlander, etc? I'm thinking about dropping, but have to believe there is still some upside there
Eno Sarris
1:03
Verlander velocity down even further. Even 'better' the last two games is basically just 92. I think he's probably a 3.8ish guy going forward. At least he'll get the Ks. Waino probably same but two fewer Ks per nine.
