FWIW I was in attendance for Manaea's last AAA start and did some crude scouting. Sat 88-92, 6 whiffs- 4 on FB and 2 on SL, and noticeably slowed his arm motion for some offspeed offerings. But it was easy to see why people are high on him.
Eno Sarris
1:03
That's a bit lower than I thought for him!
1:04
It's chill day, apparently.

how many ankles do you have and are they all sprained
Eno Sarris
1:04
p much

Byung Ho Park looks for real to me. 30 homers???
Eno Sarris
1:05
I will go with 30 homers, yes, but also a .240 average, don't think that's really budging.
Danny

Why don't more pitchers try to pull a Rich Hill and throws a ton of offspeed stuff all the time?
Eno Sarris
1:06
Injury risk fear. Ability to throw strikes with secondary offerings.
Thor
1:07
Is Graveman a better bet than Hill then in your eyes?
Eno Sarris
1:07
Way higher floor! Tons of grounders and improved velocity and command that's leading to more Ks.

Alford is rehabbing his knee instead of surgery and is now taking at bats again but with a brace on. Any thoughts or have you heard anything about him?
Eno Sarris
1:07
I just traded him away. Situation is weird. I do like the swing and power changes he made last year. But this is a bit weird to me.

Story been read and now must adjust?
Eno Sarris
1:08
I'm still playing him at home.

I read about Houston Rockets, NBA, that the "Sabermetric" model doesn't work in basketball, better the chemistry and the "Old School". Do you think Sabermetric philosophy is only good in baseball or you can apply this to other sports?
Eno Sarris
1:09
I think basketball is just harder to figure because they are always moving and the game doesn't stop for analysis. But yeah, put five guys on the field with one ball and no rules about who gets the ball... chemistry might be more important all of a sudden. I can't imagine working with James Harden, and I was an ardent supporter coming out of college.
Would you rather?
1:09
Would you rather get rid of the DH or Coors field?
Eno Sarris
1:09
Coors because I love my pitching friends too much to make them suffer.

Why am I playing every other day??? At the beginning of the season, when I wasn't supposed to be healthy, I played every day, now I'm sitting half the time. I don't have huge splits and there's no report of injury. What's the deal?
Eno Sarris
1:10
I mean it's got to be unreported soreness, right? Or do they prefer another bat?

My kingdom, for a LHDH!

Avi for Jay Bruce.
Mallex

Grandal on the wire but I have Cervelli. Worth swapping?
Eno Sarris
1:11
If OBP... heck even if OBP, I prefer Grandal.

Listened to the pod, was already trying to get Santiago and now I'm REALLY trying to get him. I need the help. Is Gregerson for Santiago a fair deal in a 14 teamer pts league if I own Britton/Betances? Putting a bid in on Smith tonight too.
Eno Sarris
1:12
I like that move.
Danny
1:12
How excited are you about Snell's riseball?
Eno Sarris
1:13
Maybe I'm crazy, but I thought I could spot the curve coming. I want another look at Snell, would be nice to see live. Everything else was nice, real nice, real 69.
Art Vandelay
1:13
Berrios curve is a *little bit* like Fernandez 2 years ago, right? It certainly seems as tight as his was.
Eno Sarris
1:13
Hung a couple, but otherwise yeah.
Cash $
1:13
Can I have your thoughts on Andrew Cashner? In your preason write-up, you mentioned his slider that "can look plus at times" and said that he could have success if he finds a slider that works. But he instead appears to have abandoned his slider. Based on the early season, he has only thrown his slider 3.3% of the time (down from 19.8% in 2015) and instead is throwing more curves (12.1% up from 3.1%) and fastballs (74.8% up froom 67.3%). If Cashner abandons his slider, is it time to abandon Cashner?
Eno Sarris
1:13
He started throwing his knuckle curve again, which threatens to give him a good breaker. But the shares I have are on the bench for now.

just dropped Corbin to pick up Manaea. no question, just feeling excited.

Giolito still the best stash over Glasnow? 11k's and a 91mph change last time out for Glasnow, pretty sexy. NL East for Giolito tasty too though.
Eno Sarris
1:15
Yo make that change. Pirates could use a boost.

Hey Eno!! Come to Northern Colorado. Microbreweries on every corner(not even talking New Belgium or Odell's). Have to drop Mesoraco or W. Ramos this weekend. Which one am I keeping?
Eno Sarris
1:16
Holding Mes(s) for a bit longer.
