Is there anything to explain Johnny Cueto's brief stretch of being awful for KC last year? Seems like he's back to being one of the best pitchers in baseball again.
Eno Sarris
12:34
Lots of moving parts in the delivery. Might happen again.

I've got Aaron Sanchez, Pomeranz, Duffy, Paxton, Tillman (among others) and just picked up Bauer in a 10 team redraft. Rank them please? Which one or two would you try to trade (either alone or as a package)?
Eno Sarris
12:35
I'd try to package Pomeranz and Duffy. Great when in, and I usually don't like to think too much about injury with pitchers because it hurts my brain and heart, but those guys...

Do players that reach the majors younger also peak younger?
Eno Sarris
12:36
This seems possible, and might explain some of the new aging curves, which show that players peak earlier recently. Debut age and average age going down. Not sure exactly why this is, but let me try something out:
12:38
baseball is 1/2 athleticism and 1/2 learned skill. We know sprinters peak super early, so athleticism might peak earlier than 25/26 even. If you debut earlier, you learn skills earlier, peak earlier, and then it's all just losing athleticism, i.e. 'getting older.'

Is ISO the very first stat you look at from Minor Leaguers for future success?
Eno Sarris
12:38
Actually I often look at that plus K% in tandem.

While there is talk Raisel Iglesias may get some closing opportunities, is he good enough against lefty handed swingers to succeed in that role if given a chance ?
Eno Sarris
12:38
Change is fine.

Who do you think is closing in Oakland post-deadline?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Doolittle and Madson. Both signed long term to decent deals and relievers are rumored to be traded more often than they are because the returns are light. Usually. Then there's Kimbrel.

basketball injury?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Yeah someone reached in, though to be fair it was a bit of a 50/50 ball, or "death incarnate."

Pomeranz going to be allowed to pitch the whole year?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Allowed but won't.

(on pitches. couldn't move a lick on the ground due to grade 2 hammy strain)
12:42
Craig Edwards: Over the top, good pitcher face

Orlando Arcia has a defensive skill set similar to that of both Andrelton Simmons and Francisco Lindor, but which offensive path is he more likely to follow?
Eno Sarris
12:42
Simmons for me. Although not a great comp, given different K%.
Harry

How good is Julio Teheran?
Eno Sarris
12:42
One of the rare true number twos.

I typically dont find beer enjoyable. The only one that I can tolerate seems to be Yuenling or a german Hofbrau. Any recommendations?
Eno Sarris
12:44
Try that Easy Jack, or Pinkus Ur-pils, or Firestone Walker Pivo Pils. Victory Prima PIls.

a couple weeks ago you responded to and chatsourced a question about my 2 month old sleeping in bed with us. an update: last night I slept in the guest room while he slept with my wife. so I'm not winning that one right now. but I did get a delicious bomber of oude geuze boon from my wife to celebrate fathers day, so at least I got that going for me.
Eno Sarris
12:44
Hahahaha parenting is so frigging hard.

How much, if any, is the difference in value for a Teheran trade now vs. at the deadline?
Eno Sarris
12:44
Should be worth a little more now! In-season, but you get more starts than just Aug/Sep.
Christian

Ben Revere or Rajai Davis?
Eno Sarris
12:44
Rajai

Yesterday Dave was saying that it looks like Addison Russell is probably not going to live up to the expectations placed on him. I tend to agree--he looks overmatched on anything over 92MPH. You were a huge backer--are you still in on him?
