Session IPAs underrated IMO. What are some of your favorites. Easy Jack, Super Session, Hoppy Birthday (maybe not a true "session"), Even Keel, and Whirlpool all up there for me
Eno Sarris
12:12
Easy Jack and Super Session great. I rec those all the time. But Pivo Pils is sorta hoppy. and there are some nice light pale ales like AleSmith X that are close.

Scale of 1-10 on concern for Kershaw?

Will Harris or The Final Boss for ROS?

Did you get a chance to see Brock Stewart start last night? Looked pretty good. Threw a lot of strikes, had some tough luck in the 2nd inning. 2 bloop hits and a mistake led to a HR.
Eno Sarris
12:13
Sat 93 mph with a lot of whiffs. Wonder what happens when other starters get healthy.
Thor thoughts
12:13
Hi Eno...any thoughts on Thor ROS with the bone spur? I read on FG that many pitchers have spurs and Thor says he'll be fine but assuming his preform acne the last couple games is injury related, the numbers seem to say something else.
Eno Sarris
12:14
One problem with Bone Spurs is that people aren't sure that removing them is good for the pitcher. There are more than a few pitchers pitching with them.

Aaron Nola has the league's 4th-worst ERA-FIP (1.29). That stat can represent both bad luck or some bad skill we can't fully identify, right (see Nolasco, Ricky)? Which is more likely in Nola's case?
Eno Sarris
12:15
Wrote a whole long post on Nola, but I think it's just a mechanics blip. He has real stuff, it's not just command. But great command too, normally. Right now he's throwing the sinker down broadstreet for lefties though.

Where do you stand on bunts? I personally think only pitchers should bunt, but I don't have any data to back that up. What say you, Eno?
Eno Sarris
12:15
Only pitchers should bunt.

Of the Braves stockpile of arms, in your estimation how many end up as #1/2s, #3/4s, #5/BP? Higher/lower than most on any?
Eno Sarris
12:15
Not sure I see a 1/2 yet.
Brett Lawrie's Empty Redbull Can

Like the decision to #LetMadbumHit in an AL park? First team to intentionally forego the DH since 1976!
Eno Sarris
12:16
It's a bad baseball decision because between Pagan, Williamson and Parker, they have an extra bat that can hit better than Bumgarner, as good as he is for a pitcher. But it's a great bad baseball decision because it will be fun.

I can see how you like the Doobies cover. Best enhancement is not using a MacDonald soundalike.
Eno Sarris
12:17
I actually don't love his voice, but I do like some of his songs.
Alex

Eno, looking for a light refreshing IPA to enjoy poolside this weekend out in So Cal, any recommendations?
Eno Sarris
12:17
Modern Times Booming Rollers.

Is there something to the idea of building a bullpen of power arms, 5-7 deep, and asking your starting pitcher to only go 5 innings each night. Paying elite RP is much more cost effective than elite SP, and the injury risk seems far less. Even converting good power SP into elite RP has some merit to keep them healthy. There's more to this idea/argument, but I wonder if a team like the O's would think about it.
Eno Sarris
12:18
One problem is that RP are less projectable year to year. But yeah, I think we're moving towards this with the Royals, Yankees, and Orioles sorta working that way.

Will you get a chance to visit venerable old Turner Field before this old stadium classic is torn down?
Eno Sarris
12:18
I've been there plenty. Lived in Atlanta from 86-93 and visited a lot until 97.
It's a decent stadium, actually. Way better than the Launching Pad.
PJ
12:18
Is it just me or has Green Flash really gone downhill?
Eno Sarris
12:19
I think they've just been passed by. They used to be the class of the town, but people are doing funner things now.
Shawn
12:19
Thoughts on Lucas Giolito's debut? I know it was short, but anything good or bad pop out at you?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Lots of high fastballs and even a high change. Knows how to use his stuff. Change didn't look great, but the other two pitches might be elite enough.
Art Vandelay
12:19
You mentioned a few catchers didn't want their names printed, what percentage of all the players you interviewed were either "no comment" or wanted to remain anonymous?
Eno Sarris
12:19
25%
12:20
Some almost recoiled in horror at the question haha.

Hey the first song went well, let's try this one. it makes me dance in the car.
L Nygaard
12:21
What's your prognosis for Conforto? Will he rebound and be what you thought he'd be?
Eno Sarris
12:21
I still believe.
MarinerDan

Who goes to the bench when Miguel Sano returns -- Grossman? Kepler?
Eno Sarris
12:21
Grossman. Perfect fourth OF.
Less upside going forward than Ze German.
