And really, nobody asked one vs the other. If you are in a league that your'e choosing between the two, take Jackie. He's freaking playing every day. Jesus.

Yasmany Tomas has some fantastic batted ball numbers... average exit velocity is top 10 and currently ahead of Stanton. He's been a great hitter all season; walking too. His issue at this point is defense and defense-only.
Eno Sarris
1:55
Yeah I was wrong about him. Changed his body a bit, too. Really surprised. I will say that his swing rates have gone back to normal, so I think he's a BA/K% risk.

Would you rather speak like a robot or smell of rancid meat?
Eno Sarris
1:55
wow. Uh, i could probably make my living better with the second, but would be tough on the wife.

Going to Portland/Seattle soon. Please guide me to the beer spots, Eno. Should I save my binge drinking for Portland?
Eno Sarris
1:56
Cascade. Gotta go there. Bend is really the hot spot up there, though. Cloudburst and Holy Mountain are the best of Seattle, and I've actually been there, so.

So for guys like Pomeranz and Joe Ross who have very little separation in movement on their FB/CH, do you expect/hope for them to gain more separation in the future as they hopefully start throwing it more?
Eno Sarris
1:57
No, I'd hope they throw the f out of it and get more movement. Every pitcher I talk to says they want more separation and they not going to get that from more throwing. Maybe a new grip.

Can Aaron Nola keep up his good start?
Eno Sarris
1:57
Yes. Love that dude.

how do you determine WAR leaders by a player's first MLB season? I'm trying to see if any player has ever opened with a WAR greater than Trout's 10.3
Eno Sarris
1:58
If you click 'rookies' and then 'split seasons', you get their first season.

On Piney vs. non-piney IPA's, are the terms and hops you mention ones to look for or to avoid if you dislike piney?
Eno Sarris
1:58
Look for.
Stan

Aaron Sanchez keep this up?
Eno Sarris
1:59
He put on weight to improve command, but pitchers, especially skinny ones like him, lose weight over season. I could see the command flaring up like it has. I do like the pitches though. He'll be usuable but not this good all year.

deGrom or Price ROS?
Eno Sarris

deGrom.

Well I know someone can blow their nose out of their eye, but didn't find out much about how much regression you see from Gregory Polanco. Baseball chat.

This is just a whinier version of you didn't answer my question. I answer about one in 20. Whining wins: I think he can improve again going forward, as he has improved incrementally every year he's been in the league. So I'll take .270/.350/.450, which is an improvement over his projections.

High schoolers getting TJ... It sure seems like a lot more kids are exclusively pitchers these days too.
Eno Sarris
2:00
yeah I don't love that.

Favorite Big Island dining establishments?

Oh man there's a Poke spot... crap. It's just in a hotel parking lot, but it was so good... Sorry man, been once. I'll probably know more in a couple years after I've been three or four more times to see family.

If 12:45 wants to avoid piney hops, Mosaic-boil beers won't solve his problem...
Eno Sarris
2:02
I consider that more of a vegetable problem.

Start Cueto tonight?
Eno Sarris
2:02
Of course.

Feelings on Marcus Stroman going forward? Has he proven enough to you yet?
Eno Sarris
2:03
Yeah I think the added depth on the breaking balls will serve him well.

I'M BACK BABY, and I'm gonna let Barry know everyday that he was 1-19 career against me.

So, any thoughts on who replaces Jeffress as closer in Milwaukee if he's traded?.... Smith, Knebel come to mind, but not sure who wins.
Eno Sarris
2:04
Smith. That team strikes me as one that will try to keep Knebel cheaper.
Drew

The "Warthen Slider" requires supination and max arm speed. Those things make me feel weird about my elbow.
Eno Sarris
2:05
He claims no supination. Throw it like a fastball and only flick the seams with the fingers at the end.

Prove me wrong on both: Todd the Axe Man is the best IPA in the USA, and Carlos Gomez is droppable in a 10 team mixed points league.
Eno Sarris
2:06
You are at least close on the first, and correct on the second.
