Holy Holy Mountain is good
12:59
Eno...thanks for the rec a few weeks back to check out Holy Mountain Brewery. Their beers were definitely good and I think the guy that was helping us may be one of the founders. I mentioned that I got the rec on a chat from a baseball writer who knows his beers. He got your name and said he'd be checking you out. btw: He's originally a NorCal guy which was kind of cool. (I live in the south bay.) Thanks again!

Does someone want to trade for Coco Crisp>
Eno Sarris
12:59
I always think he's done and then he's not. Have a feeling teams would only want to claim him, or give cash or something small.

Would the Reds be wise to trade Desclafani or should he be part of their future?
Eno Sarris

They gotta start keeping things that are working at at some point.

Baseball America recently ranked Turner higher than Swanson and Bregman. Can you please help me explain what I'm missing on Turner?
Eno Sarris

Speed tool is a hell of a drug.

What young INF prospect do you feel most confident will "break out" or become the most valuable fantasy contributor: Russell, Turner or Swanson?
Eno Sarris
1:01
I'm still all in on Russell. Hope it's not the eyes.

I've been to a couple Rivercats games this year, and man does the 20 second pitch clock make the games fly. How long until that makes the jump to the majors? Seems like it should be a no-brainer.
Eno Sarris
1:01
If that was the feeling of most of the people in the stadium, I bet it's coming real soon. We already have clocks for so many other things.

I've read the articles but still can't really figure it out. What did Paxton do to see such a massive MPH increase?
Eno Sarris
1:02
Changed his arm slot. More natural now.

Manfred said they are looking at limiting the number of relievers used per game. Yay or nay? What do you think the number would be and what kind of exceptions would there be?
Eno Sarris
1:03
I'd rather they just changed the September rules. I mean, is there a big difference across baseball? Teams have either 12 or 13 pitchers. If you had to declare five or six relievers, you'd just sit the guy that wasn't available anyway, due to usage. What a silly idea.

Call back to your article re: the slider moving differently based on where it's thrown... Is this the "back-up slider"? Every hear pitchers talk of using this as a distinct pitch?
Eno Sarris
1:05
I think the backup slider is a hanging slider that works just because they didn't expect it, but I've been wrong about old timey stuff before. The righty on righty inside breaking ball is usually called a front door breaking ball because it looks like a ball and drops into the zone.

Big fan of your work Eno, I know you and Paul just talked about him on the podcast but what should I be trying to get for Aaron Sanchez right now? Is Lackey a reasonable ask? Buy low on McCutchen? Any thoughts?
Eno Sarris
1:06
Sanchez+waiver is probably > Lackey. But I'd take Cutch for sure.

I'm in San Diego for a few days, help me Brewbi Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope (Nerd stuff, bc ComicCon). Where/what brews should I quest to find?
Eno Sarris
1:06
Modern Times tasting room in North Park plus Hamilton's. Monkey Paw closer to downtown. Neighborhood walking distance from convention center, great food, better list.

You're familiar with so-called economic leading indicators, I'm sure. So what would you say are the baseball player performance leading indicators for pitching & hitting?
Eno Sarris
1:07
Pitching: velocity, pitching mix change, movement change, location on rubber.
Hitting: exit velocity, launch angle (GB/FB), fastball% and zone%.

Where am I playing on August 2?
Eno Sarris

LA.

Eno, I have Celiac disease and can't do the whole gluten thing so (regular) beer is a no-go. Do you know of any gluten free beers that aren't really all that bad?
Eno Sarris
1:08
Try a dry cider!

Bryce Harper has been pulling off the ball for 2 months. Seems like he would have figured it out by now.

SCHIMPF! ALL HAIL THE 5'9'' TITAN OF HOMERDOM. HIS JULY ISO IS .565. WE ARE ALL WITNESSES!

What type of site is this?
Eno Sarris
1:09
Well, that was maybe one of the most perfect interludes of all time.
Nate

Would you give up Mejia for Will Smith, if you're the Giants?
Eno Sarris
1:10
I actually think they should get a righty, since I like Osich, but I think Mejia for an RP is probably on the table.

What do you make of Strawdog's confession of sex in the club house during games and have you heard about the Kevin Elster stories with another player's wife in the club house???
Eno Sarris
1:10
The good old days, or something.

Eno! What's the best way to get you some delicious beer from Side Project?
