I think they just playing around with their options, like they do. He'll be up again. Lost velo late in the last game, though.

What do you like to see out of changeup movement in relation to how it plays off the fastball?
Eno Sarris
12:56
More sink, more fade, more velocity gap, in that order.
Eno is Eno, No?

Give me your favorite IPA, that a guy can find at, like Binny's in Bloomington, IL.
Eno Sarris
12:57
You might be able to find Zombie Dust or Ninja vs Unicorn there.
Buck

Any chance you want to elaborate on why Scherzer's contract will be better than Stras?
Eno Sarris
12:57
I think he's a slightly better pitcher with a better injury past.

What is Jake Lamb, avg hr wise?
Eno Sarris

.280/20

I'm thinking about trading Posey for Strasburg and Cervelli in a 14 team 1 catcher league. I'd drop Dickerson. Thoughts?
Eno Sarris
12:58
If OBP, fine.

Is Country Breakfast completely done?
Eno Sarris

Looks like it.

Can someone put a source on the Donaldson comments about pitchers coming set? Cant find anything.

My piece yesterday. "Let's Watch a Pitcher Break the Rules and (Sorta) Get Caught"

Has Lawrie taken the next step? Top 6-8 2b for the rest of the season?
Eno Sarris

I liked him as top ten coming into the season, but I don't get this strikeout rate. I like that he's swinging and reaching less, but that ba is going to come down.

I'm a miserable Braves fan. Tell me some reasons I should feel better.

Ozzie Albies, Dansby Swanson, Ender Inciarte, Kiley McDaniel

Can we put up a road block for the Domingo Santana hype train? He has the lowest fly-ball rate in all of baseball at 15% (among qualified hitters) and has a K% of 32%. The hard hit rate is nice, but hard hit balls into the dirt, with a heavy amount of whiffs isn't really all that valuable a package, is it?
Eno Sarris
1:02
Launch angle is super important, yes. But .242/.339/.411 seems sustainable to me, with power upside beyond shown by past power outputs and different FB rates in past.

Chris Devenski's changeup has a 19% SwStr rate and is running at 11% overall with his mix. You interested?
Eno Sarris
1:03
thrown 155 of them, has great movement off his riseball, and would explain iffy K% in the minors, because changeup swSTR has the lowest correlation to overall swSTR among the pitches. It's often used for soft contact. I like him, yes, with only caveat being that things about to get crowded and he might get on the shuttle.

That's why they're called business socks

Can you have a feud with Votto? Like, move to CIN and get a seat along the 1B line and just lay it into him each game. I'd donate like, $5 to the cause.
Eno Sarris
1:03
I love him though.

when does Matt Cains contract enter ryan howard levels of terribleness? it seems like its been a total waste, and I don't see it getting any better
Eno Sarris
1:04
He's improved the command of his non-fastballs and is pitching backwards, so maybe he can be an okay five.
Slow Sano
1:04
Franco or Sano? Was relying heavily on these 2 this year. Both doing decent but not what I was hoping for.
Eno Sarris
1:04
Franco.

So you could say that Pablo had veteran...presents!
Eno Sarris
1:04
Literally!
Mattingly's Sideburns
1:04
Do you like Folty at all? He's got pitches. He's got so many pitches. The best pitches.
Eno Sarris
1:05
Lol. Except a changeup. If he focuses on two breaking balls, maybe.
Art Vandelay
1:05
are there going to be any sellers this year? It doesn't feel like Braun and Lucroy are going anywhere, I'm no longer confident Terry Ryan is capable of making smart trades, and the Braves/Angels are kind of a mystery.
Eno Sarris
1:06
Well the Braves will sell anything not nailed down, but how much do they have left. Inciarte might actually be able to stick around until they are good again.
I get a Grateful Dead vibe from this, am I nuts?
MikefromTO
1:06
is Adam Conley the real deal?
Eno Sarris
1:06
I think so.
