Think Fulmer sticks in the rotation? Worth keeping around over a stash like Glasnow/Urias or a spot starter like Wood?
Eno Sarris
12:33
I like Fulmer. The movement on the change is good, if he can command it even a tiny bit, he's got velocity and a plus slider...
Ricky

Stroman for Grichuk/Darvish. Thoughts? Concerns on an innings limit for Stroman that would prevent it?
Eno Sarris
12:34
It was a leg thing I doubt they limit Stroman. But since much of Yu's IP limit is behind him, I dunno. I might prefer that isde.
DB

Total speculation of course but do you think first up for Pirates is Taillon or Glasnow?
Eno Sarris
12:34
Taillon showing more polish right now.

Sweetwater is totally overrated. There are better beers in the same category including Victory and Founders.
Eno Sarris
12:34
Yes but they *are* in Atlanta.
CamdenWarehouse

What current meh starters do you think would be excellent in the pen?
Eno Sarris
12:36
Most of them! Well... okay, I'll cheat. Juan Nicasio. How about someone weirder... deception guy might be Ben Lively with Phillies, velocity guy might be Archie Bradley.
Josh
12:37
Who are some candidates out there with the potential to be in the mold of an "Arrieta" like acquistion? In other words who may be available at less than an exorbitant price that has potential to be a top of the rotation starter with some control left?
Eno Sarris
12:38
Rubby *might* be following that map. Gausman too late. You do want velocity if you want an Arrieta guy, so maybe Wily Peralta (I doubt it), Cody Anderson, Mike Wright... Shane Greene?

The peanut gallery and emoticons (including poo) were turned off in the chat settings because they were deemed too distracting. You can re-enable them for future chats if you like. We're also working on ways to allow them while preventing abuse.
Eno Sarris
12:39
Interesting. I can control the poo! My chats are the embodiment of distracting, so maybe the poo will return next week.

What's a good beginner Belgian style beer?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Saison.

I offered Cole for Matz and CarMar and it was accepted literally one minute before the news of Matz's elbow broke. FML or cautiously optimistic?
Eno Sarris
12:40
The guys you are getting have equal upside and more injury risk than the guy you gave up, but you got two!

Yo Eno... should I pull the trigger on this trade? I trade a Hopslam and Kentucky Breakfast Stout for two Grapefruit Sculpin and two Sculpin IPA.
Eno Sarris
12:40
Not enough. You can get those beers in most markets.
Curtis

Who is the best defensive player in baseball right now, regardless of position?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Kiermaier? He can see the frigging signs between the catcher's legs!
Erik
12:41
In regards to the Trout trade conversation, do we know how much of an effect a superstar has on attendance? Is there a model for how much attendance money the Angels would lose if they lost both their superstar and the wins he would bring? And does this affect the price of players in trades?
Eno Sarris
12:41
It's my understanding that the only thing that works is winning. I don't think I've gone to see *one* guy unless that was Barry, and Barry's teams were usually good. I mean, I went to see Braves games when Murphy was there, but not for him.
Todd
12:41
Following up on the Brinson question, would they go with one of the OF on their current roster in CF before calling up Brinson? Or does a Deshields demotion likely mean the arrival of Lewis?
Eno Sarris
12:42
They were aggressive with Mazara, and Brinson has kept his strikeout gains, so though I thought we wouldn't see much Brinson this year, I'm softening on that.
Mack
12:42
Worried about Matz? Thoughts on him overall? Is he this good?
Eno Sarris
12:42
A little worried, sure. Also find the swinging strike rate and strikeout rate discrepancy weird, because I don't see him as a command guy stealing strikes like a Kyle Hendricks.
Mike
12:42
McCullers or Gausman rest of season?
Eno Sarris
12:42
McCullers.
JBJ Fan Club

You might've seen this floating around yesterday, but Jackie Bradley Jr has basically been Mike Trout over his last 400 plate appearances. Mike Trout, JBJ over their last 81 games - AVG: .302, .298 RUNS: 42, 60 HR: 15, 13 RBI 44, 60 XBH: 38, 45. And this was before Jackie's 2 HR last night. Lineup and opportunities play a factor for JBJ, but when do we accept Bradley is an all-around stud?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Too many strikeouts, don't believe in this power.

Who do you think has the least fantasy value ROS - Mazara, Grichuk, Heyward?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Grichuk. Nice handle but needs an S.

Can we choose a date to be "stabilization day" wherein most MLBers would have the requisite PA/AB/BIP needed to reach the stabilization numbers mentioned a lot? It seems like we spend the first month and half saying "sample size" every day - we need to celebrate when the data starts getting juicy. A stat nerd holiday.
Eno Sarris
12:44
I've been doing that with my column on RotoGraphs, really.

Have you ever felt bad sending a beer you really don't like through a trade? I just shipped a box with two beers I absolutely hated and I feel like I should have put a disclaimer in there or something.
Eno Sarris
12:44
I've added beers I don't love but were either desired or unique tasting. As long as they aren't the headliner.

Do you like Lagunitas?
Eno Sarris
12:45
Yup. Sucks is good.
