Yes and yes. Nothing going right.

Re: your concern with Grichuk; even though his GB rate is up, it hasn't been at the expense of his FB rate. LD is not very highly correlated, so wouldn't we expect those increased liners to eat away from those grounders? The improved plate discipline and hard hit rate are also encouraging, no?
Eno Sarris
12:46
With PU down too, perhaps. We have to wait longer to know about FB rate, but it looks the same as usual. What if he can only be who he was last year with the same plate discipline?

Yasiel Puig, I have him as a $1 keeper forever, 6x6 with obp and slg. Someone I should hold onto or try to move during a hot streak?
Eno Sarris
12:46
I still believe in him as a .280/20/10 guy but god is he fraying my nerves.
The Hamburgler
12:46
Pomeranz - are you buying or selling? Someone is offering me him and I'm intrigued but don't know if i want to take on the risk?
Eno Sarris
12:46
Same thing as Rich Hill but younger, better fastball maybe.

Why the dislike of Kluber - is this concern this year and if so what are you expecting is a normal FIP moving forward?
Eno Sarris
12:48
Bad fastball guy who lost another tick off his fastball. He's 30. He might be fine this year, but this is the time to sell him if you're out of it in a dynasty. Or this year at least.

Hey Eno! Speaking of Kluber, would you trade away him and Fowler for Bautista and TWalker in a Roto OBP? Trying to get some more HRs. Thanks!!!
Eno Sarris
12:48
Yup!
Yoenis
12:49
Is there any hope left for Caminero? Ya boi looks reaaaaaal bad out there this year.
Eno Sarris
12:49
No command, not throwing the splitter enough, perhaps because of counts, only velocity and nothing else. Sigh.
Josh

If and when Cishek loses the closer gig, who would you expect to take over? Benoit? Vincent?

Gabriel
12:51
Where is the love for Xander? Do you think he actualizes his power potential this year? Does he finish the year as the #3 SS?
Eno Sarris
12:52
He can get there on runs and rbi and some steals and a few homers, but he's still hitting the ball (Hard) into the ground. Needs to get some launch angle in there.

Over/under 2.5 more Nick Castellanos articles you write this year
Eno Sarris
12:52
Under!

Has your early season concern about Bumgarner faded now?
Eno Sarris
12:53
Yeah, velocity getting better, batters swinging at curve again, maybe the foot is better.

Ohio just passed a 12%+ ABV law (awaiting governor's signature). Get ready for those 12%+ Bourbon Barrel Jackie O's stouts! NOMNOMNOMNOM

Been close to pull the trigger on a few deals for a 2b, which has been a problem for me all year. I have Travis very close. Does he solve my problem? Not really sure what to think of him.
Eno Sarris
12:54
Wait. hitting for just enough power in the minors right now to think that maybe his shoulder is koay.

I'm back, baby! And I'm still looking at you, Eno!

Will postmodern defensive alignments break certain defensive metrics?
Eno Sarris
12:56
Good thing there are new ones on the horizon.
Bubba
12:56
Getting desperate with both Pineda and Ventura on my team. Can I drop one of them for Bauer or Duffey?
Eno Sarris
12:57
Sell Ventura in a two for one with the worst staff in your league where you get a tiny tiny upgrade somewhere. leave Pineda on your bench. I don't love Duffey so Bauer for one of them is the only thing I'd consider.
Laura
12:57
Is Nola top 20 for the rest of the year? Assuming inning limits don't come into play.
Eno Sarris
12:57
My love for him knows few bounds.

Reyes Twofer: What happens to Jose Reyes---where does he wind up?---and will we see Alex Reyes in the majors this season?
Eno Sarris
12:59
I'm not sure we see Alex. You're waiting for a Jaime injury, really, and if it's a short term one, you get one of their fungible guys. Feel like Jose gets traded before the suspension is up.

Jim

Fantasy baseball trade proposal I received. Jared Eickhoff and Brandon Drury for Sam Dyson and Kyle Hendricks. I'd be receiving Eickhoff / Drury. Thanks!
Eno Sarris
12:59
I like Eickhoff but I don't like that deal.

Me and the wife are vacationing through New England in a few weeks. I wanted to do one brewery, and based on the variety of high ranked beers on beergraphs, I picked Allagash. But now looking at their site, they are very Belgian with a strong Brett influence... will we (you know, the wife) be disappointed?
Eno Sarris

They have good sours even if you don't love Brett beers normally. If I picked one brewery, I would have probably done Tree House in MA. You could pivot to Maine Brewery pretty easily, though, and they have awesome IPAs.
