Be here shortly! In the meantime

challa!

Are you worried about me?
Eno Sarris
12:01
Look a little doughy, not doing well in the fifth, velocity dropping off, it's hard to change fitness in the middle of the season, but I'm less worried about him than a guy like Keuchel at 88 mph.

I think I know the answer to this q given your podcast/love of Nola, but here goes: trade Travis Shaw to get back Nola in a redraft?
Eno Sarris
12:02
Shaw looks like a .260/20 type third baseman, which I like a little less than a strong fantasy #2.
Houzer
12:02
Eno! Okay ... how heavily should I be pursuing Keuchel? Give up one of Freeman, Puig, Ian Desmond, or Brantley?
Eno Sarris
12:03
Piece up today. Read it, because after it, I'm a little more confused. There are some good signs and bad signs, but i doubt he averages 90 for a season again, and that seems the most meaningful.

It's early, but is Christian Yelich a keeper at $14 in a 12-team 5x5 + OPS?
Eno Sarris
12:04
His homer / grounder problem is less of a problem in OPS, so I say yes. Always going to have a plus batting average and like 25 homers plus steals. Could Brantley at some point.

Conforto or Mazara OBP dynasty?
Eno Sarris
12:05
I love them both so much. Don't make me choose. Okay I know I have to. Fine. And not like 'fine' but like 'fine' the way your girlfriend says yeah fine we can see civil war instead of the movie I suggested. so. Conforto. I like Mazara's swing and potential for plus batting average, but i love Conforto's all field approach, power to all fields, and power more overall.

What do you think about Makiel Franco? What is a realistic expectation for him the ROS? He's slump is kind of killing me.
Eno Sarris
12:06
He's just missing a bit of power and BABIP. I think he'll end the season at .275 with 26+ homers, so I'm taking the over on his projections.

Grandal or Realmuto ROS? 12 H2H points league.
Eno Sarris
12:07
Grandal is my mans.

John Lamb looked pretty good on Tuesday, can we expect a sub-4 ERA from him this year with solid K/9?
Eno Sarris
12:07
Velo was down a bit from where I wanted it. But otherwise, good start, and I like him for those numbers, if maybe 3.8ish or so.

Adam Jones just got dropped for some reason in my 12 team 5x5 H2H. How much of my FAAB should I shoot for?
Eno Sarris
12:08
That's like a 51%er. If you made two pickups all year, you'd want one to be Adam Jones.
Josh
12:09
Grichuk has really struggled thus far, but his walk rate, strikeout rate and hard hit percentage all look good. Would you hold him or drop him for Ozuna in a 12 teamer?
Eno Sarris
12:09
I'd rather have Ozuna. I like that Ozuna is adding more fly balls this year, still hitting ball hard, should K less than Grichuk going forward.

Does Josh Bell get called up before the All-Star break?
Eno Sarris
12:09
no
NCKLM

Would stashing A.J. Reed given Tyler White’s recent struggles make sense? I have to think A.J.’s opportunity is looming. Is it worth dropping a bench player like Lamb, Ozuna or Khris Davis to do so?
Eno Sarris
12:10
Maybe Lamb, who's losing some time to Drury, but I think White will get it going again.
Erik
12:10
Does the rise of shifts mean 3B is less of a good spot to hide lumbering slow sluggers than it used to be? But outfield corner defense might be being valued more than it used to, so LF is also a worse place to hide. Is this a real trend? If so, what are the effects?
Eno Sarris
12:11
Harder to be bad defensively anywhere. Bet we get universal DH soon as teams want a place to stash those guys.
Josh
12:12
Need some speed. Prefer Ketel Marte or Denard Span?
Eno Sarris
12:12
Span. All those balls in play mean more opportunities.
Houzer
12:12
Would you consider Sonny Gray and John Lester to be in the same tier of SP's?
Eno Sarris
12:13
I like Gray more than projections but would put him under Lester, and in the same tier. Life is complicated!
Lucas Giolito
12:13
Am I alright?
Eno Sarris
12:14
I bet you still working on that change. That would explain BB% explosion. Still, Roark doing well enough that we may not see much of you.
Joe

DeShields is falling out of favor with Rangers brass. Is it Brinson time? Better NA stash, Brinson or Buxton?
Eno Sarris
12:16
Man, Brinson is striking out 12% of the time in Double-A! Are you kidding me? That was the only flaw in his game. He was dealing with some shoulder thing, but at the risk of recency bias, I'll say that I'm more excited about his future than Buxton's. That said, if it's only about this year, Buxton's road to playing time more open.
Joe
12:16
Straily possessing some top notch first pitch strike %, and swinging strike %. If it wasn’t for the park, I’d be all over. 12-team mixed worthy?
Eno Sarris
12:18
He has a good change and slide combo. I wish the velocity bump had been more substantial. I don't see why he has to give up 1.7 hr/9 like Zips says. I'll take something between depth charts (4.4/1.3) and Steamer (3.5/1.2) meaning he's a 12-team streamer, probably away from home.

Hi Eno. Couple weeks ago you recommended Chris "Nail in the" Coghlan over Coco "Nut Water" Crisp, and yeah, they both suck, but Coghlan can suck at so many positions! Thanks!!
Eno Sarris
12:19
Man I thought Crisp was burnt. He looks a little better than Coghlan, but you have to think that neck will come back to bite him.
