he's number one, but probably gone. This is a weird year for saves.

Beer question: Hitting Boston for a three-day trip first week of June. Any tips for while I'm there?

Trillium for take homes, drink at Row 34 and have some oysters next door. Mead Hall in Cambridge. If you can travel a bit, Night Shift is a must.

How confident are you in Darvish return from TJ surgery?
Eno Sarris

85%

Is Doolittle back? Recent numbers look straight out of 2014.
Eno Sarris
1:18
Yeah. I suppose he's a stash if Madson gets hurt, but Madson looking pretty good too.
Smoo

So are you buying on Valencia? Or selling?
Eno Sarris
1:19
Holding. I think he's a .280/20 guy at heart still.

Looking to move out of NYC within a year. Want a place that has similar walk a lot vibe with a fun bar scene/stuff to do/not freezing cold. What are some places I should check out?
Eno Sarris
1:21
SF pretty expensive, but at least somewhat similar and not at all cold if you're fine with 60 and gray. I really liked Seattle but it's decently cold and very wet. San Diego downtown not really same thing. Chicago super sweet but freezing cold. I guess Seattle? Uptown Oakland super cheap and there's a decent craft beer thing going on. A little less walkable/trainable.

Re: Gattis, he came back up the same time as Moran did
Eno Sarris
1:22
So let's watch how much he catches. I'm not that into Moran. Meh power, meh contact, meh patience, meh D.

Is Steven Vogt going to get better or be just this all year? Ugh.
Eno Sarris
1:23
Slightly better than this, which is maybe slightly better than you think it is right now.

Gregerson gonna be okay, or time to speculate?
Eno Sarris
1:25
He's definitely one of the weaker closers. I guess right now it's Will Harris who's the handcuff. Another low velocity guy. Mike Fast wrote the seminal piece on the value of velocity and his team has gathered all the low-velocity guys.

Am I wrong in percieving FanGraphs as owner friendly?
Eno Sarris
1:25
Front office, perhaps, but not so much in my writing.
Marcus

You were down on Shark going into the season, what about now? Still like him more than Smyly?
Eno Sarris
1:27
Wait, what? I had Smyly ahead. I might have been wrong about the shark, though. I thought it was the cutter's fault, but he was adamant it wasn't when we talked, and the velocity loss has been way less than I thought it was.

Good time to sell high on Rajai and Napoli, or hold? The higher K rate and lower walk rate for Napoli in particular scares me
Eno Sarris
1:27
Sell.

Karns is starting to pop out as a leader in some of the underlying peripherals. What types of leagues should he be owned/pitched?
Eno Sarris
1:27
15+ for sure. I think 12+ too but I've always liked him and the change has improved.
Trainman

If the Astros continue to struggle, do you see them shaking up the front office? The Gomez and Giles trades have turned out to be colossal mistakes to this date. I know they have brought up a lot of prospects but the trades to me have been a major reason why they have struggled. Velasquez and Santana would have the Astros in a much better position.
Eno Sarris
1:28
Last year bought them some time.

My Correa for Rosenthal and Ziegler.
Eno Sarris
1:28
no.

if you could go to one brewery in Seattle, which one would it be? Can you rank Eovaldi, Eickoff, De La Rosa, Karns and Corbin? Thanks!
Eno Sarris
1:28
Cloudburst. Primo location, much upside on the beers. Eo Karns Eick Rubby
Al

You said on the pod that you were making less money than you used to. What did you do before this?
Eno Sarris
1:29
The amazing thing is I edited children's books.

Whats the likelihood Burgerbox is closer by year's end?

Can you give a brief breakdown on Conley. Why is it you like him? Do you think he is worth a pickup in ottoneu 5x5?
Eno Sarris
1:31
Yes. Good velocity for a lefty, and chance for even a bit more. Great change. Improving slider, spin rates on all pitches. Great results so far, which chance he can improve WHIP.

Post-hype first base battle royale, Smoak vs. Myers, who do you like?
Eno Sarris
1:31
Myers x 10000
Quirks

Any idea on the timeframe of when Odor's appeal will be heard? In a league with a weekly deadline for lineups, it would be handy to get a heads up.
