Cody Anderson's curve supposedly made the difference in his last start versus the Whitesox. With Carrasco coming back, Clevinger up and Bauer in the rotation what should the Indians do and what are your thoughts on Anderson moving forward?
Eno Sarris
12:37
My guess is Cody stays up and Clevinger goes down, but the next start will be big for both.

Jepsen, May, other, or just forget the turd storm that is the Twins bullpen altogether?
Eno Sarris
12:38
I've picked up a few May shares since they were super cheap and there's been a Perkins setback. It's only Jepsen in mixed leagues.

What are some obvious holes on contending teams come trade deadline? Like cards pitching or Mets OF?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Pirates pen? Red Sox number two?

Did Tuesday change your opinion that all Matt Harvey needs to do is fix his slider? That second time through the order is becoming a real pattern.
Eno Sarris
12:39
Weirdest thing for me is him not throwing his good curve and change more. I think he needs to do that.

is Cameron Maybin legit? would you drop Will Myers for him?
Eno Sarris
12:40
I like him some, but I wouldn't do that.
Stan

Tyler White....droppable in a 10 team league?
Eno Sarris
12:40
I like him some but I would do that.

Over/under: my flippity or my floppity?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Flippity.

Word is Lucas Giolito struggled early because the Nats messed with his mechanics at the beginning of the season. That have since let him go back. What was the point?
Eno Sarris
12:41
Improving the change or his long-term prognosis? Something similar happened with Sonny Gray.
Todd

Where Buxton is concerned, they probably want him to have some sort of consistent success for awhile. He's been all over the place the last 2-3 years. He was always batting injuries at AA, got called up way too early and sucked, sucked again at MLB this year. Probably good for the kid mentally to just rake for a few months. His K:BB still doesn't look great.

It looks like Cain figured something out three starts ago when he switched to the other side of the pitching rubber. Seems like he might be back. If so, how would you rank the Giants rotation, even with Peavy in it?
Eno Sarris
12:43
I wouldn't buy him ore than his 4.12/1.28/7K9 Depth chart projection. If you rank by the top three, Giants probably top three rotation. In sum, it drops.
12:44
Top three top threes? Let's see. Mets, Dodgers, Nationals, Cubs, White Sox, Giants. I could see arguing that teams like the White Sox and Dodgers 3s are worse than Giants, but okay, not a top three top three.

Thoughts on Villar? He's been sneaky good, but I haven't heard much about him on FG.
Eno Sarris
12:45
I like what he's doing. Real improvements. Should stick even if Arcia comes up.
Dr. Cripps
12:45
Frosty, tepid, luke, or scalding on Devon Travis? How many games til he bats leadoff?
Eno Sarris
12:46
Luke. A little worried about that injury and his power, but otherwise into him.

Eno Supremo, happy Thursday. To my surprise, I don't see many people talking about the Brewers' Junior Guerra. Converted catcher, throws hard, nasty splitter, lots of swinging strikes. 30 years old, but low mileage on the arm. I think he's pretty intriguing and am looking for some support. Thanks!
Eno Sarris
12:47
I enjoyed watching him. Projections don't love him fantasy wise because of iffy command -- walks and homers take much his value away -- but that swinging strike rate, that velocity, which he kept late into the game, is real nice. I picked him up in Tout, a 15-team mixed league.

Need Odor coverage. Best options dietrich, phillips, dozier, pearce, old spice?
Eno Sarris
12:47
Dozier.

Eno Sarris

Corey Knebel, who brews his own.

Gonna meet Eno on the 17th or 18th. Yay.

Come to the meetup in NYC!

Had the pleasure of seeing both Urias and Manaea in the minors this year. IMO Urias > Manaea, and it's not that close. Urias held off on his full repertoire until the fourth/fifth inning and has at least four pitches. Very polished indeed.

Wei-Yin Chen...is good? He had that one gem surrounded by a padding of meh.
Eno Sarris
12:50
not sure where the pop-ups are. I think they'll be back because the rest of pitching mix is about the same.

Adam Lind just raised his ops over 100 points in one game
Eno Sarris

This is why we don't look at early season power numbers so much. Look at GB/FB more.
