Of the players with more than 500 plate appearances against the shift, Kyle Seager has the second highest wOBA (about 15 players). Currently this year, he has not been pulling the ball to his standards. He's making less contact. He's been shifted more often this year. Could part of his struggles be due to changing approach due to shifts?

Interesting. That would explain the sapped power but similar plate discipline numbers. I'd have to look into this more, but it's certainly possible.
Good god. I haven't even made it to 12:30...

if you were to work for a team, would you prefer an already super saber-oriented front office, or one where your skillset might give you more influence for a less oriented team? Or how about you just work for the mets!
Eno Sarris
1:32
I dunno. I think my best role is as go-between. Translate for the front office, make the players familiar with me, bring the ivory tower closer to the ground.

Oh has a 21% sw-str%, as does Neris. Can either of these guys finish the season close to this mark?
Eno Sarris
1:32
Money on Neris and his splitty.

How's Ballast Point's Sculpins?
Eno Sarris
1:33
Mostly good. I hate the habanero though.

You liking Brandon Belt's adjustments so far this season?
Eno Sarris
1:34
Going the other way more, should be good for contact. Might be tough on power, but he's always trading one for hte other.

Given that players' peaks end at 28-29, isn't there a good argument for NEVER bringing up position players until they're 23 or 24, regardless of how good they are? Why lose their best seasons?
Eno Sarris
1:35
I think athleticism peaks closer to 23/24, so 23 seems about right. Gives them a year of upward development and peak athleticism, and then four or five more with the team before goodbye.

Would you drop one of Velasquez and Rodon for Manaea?
Eno Sarris

no.

A few days ago Strandberg recommended selling low on Rendon. Do you agree?
Eno Sarris
1:36
Swinging strike rate the same, exit velocity still above average, just a few too many grounders. I'd hold.

Chance Soler ever figures it out?
Eno Sarris
1:36
I'd trade for him in real life.

If you had to dumpster dive into a teams failed prospect pool looking for the next Arietta, which team would you choose?
Eno Sarris
1:38
Haha Baltimore again. I feel like they have a prescriptive approach to mechanics which isn't helpful. Every body is a snowflake. Not saying there aren't good ideas and bad ideas, but banning a pitch seems over the top.

Have you ever though about suing the city of Reno, NV for clearly just taking your name, and adding an "r" to the front?
Eno Sarris
1:38
I'm coming for you Reno.

Piscotty projection? He seems to be living up to the batted ball profile.
Eno Sarris
1:38
Doing what I thought he would, really.

I know itll never happen, but Bauer to the Pirates really excites me
Eno Sarris
1:38
Yeah that's a good one, but the Indians do a good job with pitchers usually.

What do you make of the "fine piece of machinery" that is Joey Votto at the plate? Concerned at all? BB% down 9.5% from last year; K% +3.9%. When will we see the Ferrari?
Eno Sarris
1:40
He did say it takes till April and sometimes May but I don't get it. I think he's struggling to deal with that inside pitch still.

Is there something mechanical about why RHPs have more power than LHPs? Some filtering along the way in the minors?
Eno Sarris
1:40
I think it's a question of sample size. more righties!
Bork

I want to see a home run derby that rewards based on distance, not the total amount of dingers. Park vs Stanton would be glorious.
