As a one-time publishing worker, do you have any advice for someone who is considering an attempt at writing children's books? (Assume that the person does not have the visual-artistic skills to illustrate the book, if that makes any difference.) Thanks!
Eno Sarris
1:01
Probably find that visual person. Everyone will respond better to a pitch with pictures.
Keeper I hardly know her
1:01
Time to cut Buxton in a 12 team dynasty points?
Eno Sarris
1:01
depending on how many keepers. if fewer than 10, yes.

What's IPA day? Is that a reference to 8.4% ABV? Lots of IPA's in the high 6%s, no?
Eno Sarris
1:01
Just a way to sell more beers.
Art Vandelay

so re: Benintendi, do you think that it might be a smart move for some teams to platoon guys on their first call up? Even if the team knows they're going to eventually be an everyday player?
Eno Sarris
1:02
If they aren't in competitive mode, no, let them try both sides and adjust before the team is good. But in Boston's situation, yes.
Toronto! September 7,8,9, I'll be there. Pitch Talks and a meetup. I'll be

What's going to happen with Braun? Surprised he hasn't been traded?
Eno Sarris
1:03
That's a big contract.

She lies and says she's in love with him. Can't find a better 'lude. She dreams in color she dreams in red. Can't find a better 'lude.

Install a fleshlight in that pizza ATM and mankind will never have to socially interact ever again.

oh no we broke humanity.
Smyly was not giving up home runs and then Alex Gordon dammit.

Robbie Ray is a reliever, not a starter. Every start it's 3-5 good innings where you think he looks like he's in command and then it's that one inning with 2 PA where he can't put a guy away and puts them on and gives up a 3 run bomb. He has the stuff to be really good in the pen - his 94 starting would be 96 in the pen and he'd be death on lefties and capable against righties.
Eno Sarris
1:04
This might be true. The running joke is that I've thought this and people have been telling me I'm wrong and pretending they are Ray himself. If you don't have a third pitch, you need to have really good command.

How worthwhile is a trip to the winter meetings/job fair stuff for someone who just graduated and wants to get into baseball in some capacity?
Eno Sarris
1:06
It's so frigging crowded. I think I'd take a job that increases the skills that you would use to get in baseball, or a job around baseball (think writing, coaching, anything sorta baseball) and start making contacts. Going in blind puts you in the meat grinder.
Matt

If I were to tell you that Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is my favorite beer, how would you respond?
Eno Sarris
1:06
Hello, college me!

12 team redraft standard, pick one to cut. J Upton, Kepler, K Davis, David Dahl.
Eno Sarris
1:08
Oh lord, even by projections at this point it's pointing towards Upton. He's projected at .260 9 (HR+SB), and Davis can beat that, Dahl can beat it (if he steals), Kepler should have a better BA. Otherwise it's Dahl, but you should at least shop him in a two for one first.
Matthew

Eno, which 2 of these 3 would you start tomorrow; Hellickson @ SD, Taillon vs CIN, or Santana @ TB?
Eno Sarris
1:08
Taillon.
Marty

Went to TreeHouse the other day...3 hours wait and then they were limiting the nubmer of bottles. No thanks.
Eno Sarris
1:09
But the beer is so so so so good.

Can confirm sarris is amazing. They are about 30 mins south of Pittsburgh.
Eno Sarris
1:10
Maybe they'll send me free chocopretzels just for the name.
Ryan
1:11
Why is Tyler Skaggs steamer projection so amazing? MiLB numbers? Steamer has him at a 2.97 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, nearly 10 K/9...
Eno Sarris
1:11
Velocity up too. I like what I see. Commanding the curve for called strikes some when not getting whiffs. Want to see more changes, but movement solid.
The Oriole Bird
1:12
As an Orioles fan, I kind of hate that the Yankees made all the right moves during the trade dealine. But it was also kind of fun to watch, having seen them do virtually nothing but outspend for the past 20 years or so.
Eno Sarris
1:12
They did really well. Finally bit the bullet and sold.
Marty
1:12
The rockies played out of their mind...to get to .500. Not seeing a story here at all. Pun intended.
Eno Sarris
1:12
They're quietly gathering pitching.
jaysfan
1:13
What to make of sonny gray? velocity, k and bb rates seem normal, but huge hr/fb spike can't be fluke if hard hit rate is so high too, right?
Eno Sarris
1:14
Lost command of the breaking ball and can't morph it into two pitches. More predictable, can't bury it when he needs to. Injury related I'd bet.
Marty

Eno Sarris bobblehead cia-pet.
