Who plays in 7 teamers?
Eno Sarris
1:00
Maybe super deep lineups? Family leagues, sometimes there's not enough family.

is Pineda ever going to figure it out? Want to drop him to stream good pitching matchups...
Eno Sarris

The cutter has changed shape and he can't command it. I can say that but I don't know how long it takes to command again.
JP Penny

Eno, don't you know anything, Tolleson was only taking a break from pitching and is obviously still the closer even though they're saying it's Dyson GOD DO SOME RESEARCH YOU CLOWN
Eno Sarris
1:02
yeah and I was replying to a question about a 'vulture save' which, you know what that is, didn't figure I had to explain it in my limited space and time here oh god what am I doing

Thoughts on McCullers this season and beyond?
Eno Sarris
1:02
Still love.

I'm trying to be patient with Finnegan but how long should I wait before I consider dropping him?
Eno Sarris
1:03
Not much longer. The guys that we like in the 70-90 range are actually longshots. He's not showing the swinging strikes or command that he'd shown in small stints, so he's droppable. Unless you in deep/keeper leagues, then he's still worth waiting around for a bit.
Still good lefty velocity.

The Phils called up Tommy Joseph and he's looked good so far. Any chance he becomes the primary 1B soon, or will he be stuck with the short end of a Ryan Howard platoon?
Eno Sarris
1:04
Still a right hander and Howard not quite dead yet. Maybe by end of year.

Read your xbabip art yesterday. Should we keeper owners really be looking to move Hosmer? He's just starting to enter his prime and it looks like he's finally tapping into his power too. Please elaborate.
Eno Sarris
1:06
I just don't buy that any *more* power is coming with a 60% ground ball rate. My research suggests that power prime is actually 26. So this would be selling him at his peak, IMO.

Wait a sec there are two Rougned Odor's in the Rangers organization and they both play 2nd base?? What are the odds?
Eno Sarris
1:07
BROTHERS! I did hear Desmond asking him what his mom calls him and he admitted that he's Roberto (middle name) to his mother, and that his father (also Rougned Odor) is the real Rougie in the family.

Sweetwater Artisanal: most underrated brewery on the East Coast. You know it to be true, Eno.
Eno Sarris
1:07
I'll take that Gose, but leave a lot of the IPAs.

how dumb am I for drinking coffee beers before bed time? i never really thought about this, but does a lot of the caffeine stay in the brew?
Eno Sarris
1:08
See, I don't drink coffee and I swear I feel it. But brewers tell me they use the beans without 'brewing them' so it's just like washing beans in beer. Minimal caffeine. But I wouldn't drink decaf before bed either.

Valencia + Davis = Orange Khrush. Can these guys be the A's big boppers all season?
Eno Sarris
1:09
Hah! Why not. This is what Beane is doing. Build an 81-win team, evaluate in August if you're on pace for 90 because something worked out better than you thought, and then trade future value for present if you're in one of those years.

Thinking about a Maine trip centered around breweries. Good idea, or best idea?
Eno Sarris

Don't forget Bissell Brothers!

Is Brett Lawrie worth the start at 3B in a 12 H2H OBP/SLG or should I go out and try to trade from a high-tier 3B? Not much in FA
Eno Sarris
1:10
Sure. walk rate says that OBP will be okay as BA falls.
Oaklander

I was offered Sonny Gray for my Jesse Hahn. What say you?
Eno Sarris
1:10
I like Hahn and I'd take that.
KD
1:11
Still feel good about Domingo?
Eno Sarris
1:12
Sure. I think you'll look up and see a .250ish average and 24 homers and 5 steals at the end of the year, with a good OBP, at the top of a lineup. I wish he hit more fly balls, but at 23, he's going to improve in that department for a few years at least.

Finally, a chatter room full of males. Is Hector Neris manly enough to take over the closer role by say, my next "time of month"?
Eno Sarris
1:12
I know for a fact that it's at least not 100% male.
1:13
Which... what can I do about that anyway. I think Neris has the skills to close and *should* take over, but I care not for his demeanor or genitals.

What's the deal with Carlos Gomez?
Eno Sarris
1:14
Hurt. Maybe the Mets knew something.
Josh
1:15
Now that Dyson has taken over, who are some of the top closer stashes?
Eno Sarris
1:16
It's pretty barren. Neris is number one. Then there's a gap. Then it's... Ohlendorf? Cingrani? Yuck. Bush? Zych?
Boxberger!
