Yeah I think so.

Daniel Murphy is puling the ball more and smoking it. Is he just a better Daniel Murphy?
Eno Sarris
12:20
I keep waiting for the pitchers to adjust, but maybe it's one of those switches they can't unclick.

What is wrong with Russell Martin? He has to be hurt or something, right?
Eno Sarris
12:20
Neck.

You had previously said you really liked Rodon in April, now you are saying his velocity is down and you're concerned and he's droppable. Can you go into more detail about your true feelings on Rodon (I have kept him for two years in a league and I am concerned)
Eno Sarris
12:23
I'm glad he kept the walks down. I'm glad he's getting grounders. His slider is still the business. Not droppable in 12-team keepers. I've still got a share in an 11-team where I really need the upside at pitching. But for others that need to move on, I don't like the velocity decrease and the swinging strike decrease.

I've been patient with my sluggers and most of them have repaid me with recent hot streaks, Hanley, Abreu, Santana. And then there's Fielder. At this point would you bench him for Plouffe or Pearce?
Eno Sarris
12:23
No.

Shelby Miller....apparently a mechanical issue, but he continues to struggle after become aware of it. What's up with Shelby Miller?
Eno Sarris
12:23
Unless the mechanical issue also gets the velocity back, I don't think we'll see the Atlanta version again.

Does Boxberger get his job back when he's healthy or has Colome pitched his way into the closers role?
Eno Sarris
12:24
I think the Rays like to spread saves around and keep everyone cheap. I would be surprised if Box didn't get any saves.

Are teams taking advantage of Jon Lester's oddities as much as they could be? He can't throw to first on a pickoff, and now he can't throw to first on a comebacker. Should teams be bunting on him with anyone who is at all decent at bunting?
Eno Sarris
12:26
It's the kind of thing you see in the postseason, and not as much in the middle of the season, isn't it? But why?

Do you think Gregory Polanco will ever learn to hit LH pitching?
Eno Sarris
12:26
I think he'll learn to not swing as much.

Hi Eno - In a recent chat, August said that Thor's velocity may in part be accounted for by 'intent' suggesting he throws with '90% intent' (read 'effort'?) compared with other pitchers who throw with '70% intent'. Has the idea of 'max effort' come up in your discussions with pitchers? Thank you!
Eno Sarris
12:28
Hector Santiago said that he decided this year he would throw as hard as he could till they took the ball from him, which suggests that others leave more in the tank. In related news, Santiago's velocity has been down big the last two starts.

There's no J Dilla, but have you listened to ONRA and his Les Chinoiseries beats (the Anthem is a favorite) or any L'Orange? Good beat makers both.
Eno Sarris
12:29
Is this it? pretty good

How bad is my Reds bullpen? And how does your answer f***ing help the Reds?
Eno Sarris
12:29
Is v bad. vv bad. And so I don't have to answer any more questions about this vv bad thing: I think Ohlendorf is the closer.

So, Rich Hill, worthwhile investment for a win now team in a points dynasty league? Worth a 25-50 overall range prospect?
Eno Sarris
12:30
So many Tums. Why not also ask the Pomeranz owner what the price is? They basically doing the same thing.

It's funny putting in stuff before the chat. It's the quiet part of the morning. Just me and the raccoons.

And then... this happens.

Is shifting only relevant for a generation, when players are coming up having not faced a shift much while developing? Will the next generation of sluggers be trained from a young age to bunt to beat the shift enough to not face it regularly, leading to the natural decline of shifting?
Eno Sarris
12:32
I think it's here to stay because it's not just the infield shift we are talking about. There's more to happen, too: left fielders swapping with right fielders, three outfielders up the middle, two outfielders and a rover in short right... love the shift because it's here.

Jon Gray's new curveball. Is it good? Not recognized by PitchFX yet. Used it once, then 4 times, then 13 times. Plus, Jon Gray is just nasty. Are you buying any Jon Gray despite home park?
Eno Sarris
12:33
Might have some trouble with it at home, but yeah he looks like real deal.

Was offered Conforto and Forsythe for Ortiz and Pence. Regular roto categories with walks added. Keep forever (8) and no round value. Was going to say no, but my 2B is Phillips with Travis stashed.
Eno Sarris
12:33
I say yes.
