His four seam numbers are almost exactly average, which is straighter than deviating from average. Sinker's good, gives up fewer homers, but he trusts it less and it's a strike less often.

I think if you are unsure if you are a buyer or a seller, you're probably a seller
Eno Sarris
12:51
And yet, the thing that gets butts in seats is sustained winning. So selling too much actually has consequences.

Tre T a lock to stay up n run wild?
Eno Sarris

Yeah. In CF!

Some pop songs just need to be covered to reveal their genius. See: I Can't Get You Out of My Head by the Flaming Lips and Toxic by that woman whose not Britney Spears and is probably from somewhere in Europe. It's sexy.

I heard a cover of "Billie Jean" in reggae in Jamaica and suddenly understood the words for the first time.

Expensive Kershaw for mid-priced Harper in a keep-6 league h2h points? Harper's owner is out of the playoffs.
Eno Sarris
12:52
You'd think Harper is the better keeper given their prices, but not enough to get mad about.

Is Seattle going to hold even though their chances are slim? If not, who could be moved?
Eno Sarris
12:53
I could see moving Diaz if there's a lot of interest, Paxton not crazy either. But do they bring back a ton?

Bedrosian gonna take over for Street by season's end? Huston looks like toast.
Eno Sarris
12:53
Bedrosian and Nate Jones two of my most interesting reliever pickups for saves hounds.

I can only find Booming Rollers in a Modern Times variety 10 pack as its a spring seasonal. Are other MT beers worth buying the 10 pack for Booming Rollers?
Eno Sarris
12:54
yes.

Who on the Fangraphs staff has the most baseball playing experience? Any former college or pro players?
Eno Sarris
12:54
I forget where Jeff Sullivan pitched, but I know that Brad Johnson still plays in one of those fast-pitch baseball adult leagues! I peaked in JV, when I went 3-10 in a 10-game season with three drag bunts.

If there's any reason baseball players display a high jerk% it's because a huge fraction of their interactions with strangers are with autograph hounds pestering them to sign memorabilia they can sell to make a buck. Don't blame them for putting a guard up.
Eno Sarris
12:55
oh man, listen, getting autographs is fine, but those hordes make me feel bad.

Over/under: my herpity or my derpity?
Eno Sarris

Not the one that starts with most of the letters of a venerial disease.

Is Odor always going to be a low BB guy, or does that tend to increase with age?
Eno Sarris
12:56
You *do* take more pitches as you age, so it could go up a bit.
it shouldn't

Pedro was also a head-hunter who got into fights with 80 year old men.
Eno Sarris

which was always fairly entertaining. I didn't know I was taking personalities, though.

Umpire: The rain should clear up in half an hour, so we'll start then.
Buck Showalter: It's not raining at all.
Umpire: Okay, you caught me, we're finishing up a Magic the Gathering tournament with some of the Rays.
Buck Showalter: But we're playing the Yankees.
Umpire: This runs deeper than you seem to realize.

What do you mean by "desert island beer"?
Eno Sarris
12:59
Beer you'd take with you if you had to drink one the rest of the way.

Can someone please explain the Caminero excitement to me?

ERA under 1.7 in 10 innings since his return, strikeout rate up, closer velocity, under team control on a team that's reportedly shopping the closer.
Spaceman Spiff
1:01
Pineda fell in your rankings, but K% BB% & velocity all look fine. Am I missing something?
Eno Sarris
1:01
Looked at exit velo and launch angles and he's giving up hard contact.

If we're so concerned with speeding up games that we're willing to change the rules, why not start with bullpen segways? Would unambigiously shave several minutes off the game with zero change to actual gameplay. Just too silly to consider?

What kind of role does this Alvarez kid play for the Rangers this year and into the future.? He sure seems to have the strikeout ability to be a potential closer.
Eno Sarris
1:02
Not the velo and he's a lefty.

I've always been curious with these chats since I send multiple questions in... does that chat identify for you if it's coming from the same user? Even if I said my name was Steve or Barack?
