Only at .270/10/10 rest of season. It's not that impressive, actually, and it's right in line with his career rates. In OBP I would.

What do you make of this Marcell Ozuna streak? Can we say that maybe Barry Bonds is one heck of a hitting coach, or was this the Ozuna that everyone was waiting to come out of his shell since '14?
Eno Sarris
1:07
Both. The Marlins were telling him to do the wrong things, Imo. He's better for having to try to go the other way on the ground, but now he's adding some of that to pull fly ball power and yes I like.

Best widely available gose?
Eno Sarris
1:07
Westbrook Gose Gone Wild but dunno how widely available it is. I like the Anderson Valley one.
Clarkson

Better stash, Berrios or Reyes?
Eno Sarris
1:07
Berrios.
Andy

Boxberger get closer job back immediately?
Eno Sarris
1:08
Supposedly.
Lake

Having a tough time understanding why
Eno Sarris

I'm with you.

I offered Desmond for Severino after week one. He had Cesar Hernandez at SS. He said no.
Eno Sarris
1:09
You got lucky.

Wait, ENO. You still think the Sox need a #2? Like that is their top priority? I would've thought a LF would've become the priority a few weeks ago after Porcello/Wright have established themselves as competent
Eno Sarris
1:09
Their offense is great. In a short series, I think they need a number two.
Guns n' Roses
1:09
It's so easy, Eno

You thiink the answer for slumping players is just for them to play better. I feel that if all slumping players would just play better, then they wouldn't be slumping any more.
Eno Sarris
1:10
Yup. That's why I asked if we should have regular scrimmages in baseball, like against an A-ball team. Everyone get some!
Quirks

What is your take on Addison Russell offensively? How much improvement is he showing in year 2 ?
Eno Sarris
1:10
All of it. I love that guy. I could see him actually pushing it to .280/25 in the good years.
BakedBean
1:10
Most likely to turn it around(ever), Rusney Castillo, Allen Craig or Pablo Sandoval ?
Eno Sarris
1:10
Rusney? What a poopsicle.
Lake

Thoughts on Ozzie Albies future with the Braves?
Eno Sarris
1:11
First crack at shortstop.

Does anything with VV scream injury to the point where you wouldn't buy him in a keeper?
Eno Sarris
1:11
Heard some whispers about health issues long term but not really.

Dave in his chat yesterday talked about the analytics comunity being very white (and male) your thoughts on of its a problem that needs to be fixed or will it take care of it self?
Eno Sarris
1:12
It won't take care of itself but it's a very difficult problem to fix. One of the problems is how poorly baseball pays. If you want to get into analytics, one of the best ways is an internship. One that won't pay you enough to live in the city the team plays in, so you need help.

Does a minor league system affect how you think a player will develop? Do you think different teams are better/worse at developing prospects mentally/mechanically or is it mostly a wash?
Eno Sarris
1:14
I think this is a great place that teams could still separate themselves. Problem is that great developers/coaches are expensive, and the untapped ones are in colleges, where they are paid well and don't travel 180 days a year.

Has Matz become the #4 best pitcher on the Mets or is he even higher?
Eno Sarris
1:14
Second or third best right now!
Big Joe Montferrant

So, Jorge Mateo is a SS with 80 speed hitting to a .890 OPS while being 2 years young than avg in High A. Time to buy in dynasty leagues?
Eno Sarris
1:15
Still a ways away, but there is one thing I've learned recently: speed is a young mans game in and in the big dynasty leagues, it's hard to buy youth, so you better develop some guys with speed in your farm.

Eno, what do you think of Leonys Martin's power improvement?
Eno Sarris
1:15
ug. I noticed he was one of the biggest GB reducers and then I said that maybe he shouldn't do that because he doesn't have great power and then he hit all the homers.
J

Joey Votto continues to K - what's up? More then just struggling with the inside pitch?
Eno Sarris
1:16
Cutters in particular. If they can hit the strike zone, he's a little screwed. But that's almost a weakness for anyone so.

Has Fangraphs ever employed a female writer?
Eno Sarris
1:17
Wendy Thurm before, Emma Baccielleri (newsletter), Corrine Landrey (front page) right now. When NotGraphs was up we had a couple. We just hired two women to handle some new ventures.
