Alpine Hop Boxed? Firestone Walker Easy Jack is a session. Cigar City Jai Alai of course.

I'm surprised you don't have a stronger opinion / more thoughts on Urias. You da pitching expert, Eno!
Eno Sarris
12:53
He's the most polished pitching prospect that could come up this year! He's exciting! All pitching prospects have a 50% bust rate or worse. He's probably overrated in redraft leagues. But, of all the guys I'd sell out for if I knew they were starting the rest of the way, he's the guy. And with the Dodgers rotation the way it is, I see opportunity. By talent right now: Kershaw, Maeda, Ryu, Urias, Wood, McCarthy with the last two pretty close?

Going to Chicago this year for the first time as an adult. Any good breweries, distilleries, and food that's off the beaten path?
Eno Sarris
12:55
Peace Pizza isn't always mentioned as a destination, but it's right by a great taco place. It's in a hip part of town so not off any path, but it doesn't get the love it should. Also, people hold their nose at Goose Island these days, but the Clybourn pub brews its own (excellent) beer.

Is Puig a must own in a ten team mixed league H2H league? I'm starting to think the extra roster spot to use for streaming will be more valuable.
Eno Sarris
12:56
I still think he can .280/20+/10, which seems valuable in that league.

Was just offered Tanaka for Vizcaino. Deal? Have Jeffress and Osuna for closers. Need SP help.
Eno Sarris
12:56
yes. go.

I'm thinking that Sean Doolittle might be working himself back into the closer position with the A's. If the team were to move Madson once they're out of it do you think they reinstall Doolittle?
Eno Sarris
12:57
Madson on three year deal so Hill would probably go first, but Doolittle has been v nice.

Hey Eno! I want to go the FG Meetup on the 18th- do I need to buy a ticket to get in?
Eno Sarris
12:57
no, free for everyone.

To elaborate on the WAR, FIP thing.. That is why Wins Above Replacement, simply is not the right name for this stat. It measures a pitchers TALENT and not his ability to WIN games. TTL (True Talent Level, would make the stat more universally accepted).
Eno Sarris
12:58
Not true. In order to measure how each player contributes to wins you'd have to know how they actually contribute to wins. So if a pitcher's excellent defense is actually doing most of the heavy lifting, those wins should go to them and not to the pitcher.

What did you make of the "Black guys don't do analytics" (???) article from the Undefeated
Eno Sarris
12:59
The only kernel of truth in there is that african americans are underrepresented in front offices and that there's a bit of an MBA/white/suit cabal forming. The rest was gobbledigook.

ride him while he's throwing that splitter, don't invest long term due to health reasons.

I imagine Neal Huntington in a thick Irish accent saying "whale if evryone's doin it!" And then eyeing the buttons on his desk that say "Taillon" and "Glasnow" and emphatically smacking one of them.

Heard you discuss Pierce on the Pod and sounds like you kind of like. I stashed Travis a few weeks ago and have Dee Gordon on bench. Would like to open a roster spot. Safe to drop Pierce and hold Travis or will Pierce make me sorry? Thanks Eno!
Eno Sarris
1:01
I'd rather hold Travis.

Fulmer is sitting on waivers in my league - drop Conley or Gray to scoop him?
Eno Sarris
1:02
Gray. Fulmer has a third pitch he trusts right now.

ENO PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF BEER AND BASEBALL: could you help me out finding out league averages for advanced stats, as well as differentiation between elite and average for stats such as K-BB%!
Eno Sarris
1:02
Go to the leaderboards, click 'league stats' and it will all come into focus for you.

After last night's game, Hyun Soo Kim has now accumulated more offensive value than anyone on the Orioles not named Machado, Davis, or Trumbo and he has done it in 32 AB. At what point do the Orioles stop being bitter about the failed demotion attempt and actually start play him regularly?
Eno Sarris
1:04
I've got a share of him because I also don't believe in Rickard. But how long can we wait?

Re: the saber friendly clubhouse question... the Pirates are absolutely in that conversation. They do such an outstanding job with it.
Eno Sarris
1:04
True.

What if the jump-fest on walk-off homers was replaced by everyone doing the "walk like an Egyptian" dance? I think drawing fan interest with weird dances is the new market inefficiency.

Does Gausman still have ace upside with that insane splitter?

The curve has been huge.
