Look at Mo Rivera for throwing your best pitch more
Eno Sarris
1:14
Well if you have an all-time legendary pitch, yes, you shold throw it more.

Does Taijuan Walker have three plus pitches?
Eno Sarris
1:16
Actually, not by results, not this year. The split is below average, strangely. Curve is too.

I'm convinced some of the NEIPA knockoffs, (Hoof Hearted, whatever the hell that is linked above, etc.) are using literal Flour in the mash. I made a NEIPA, it's cloudy but it isn't opaque looking chicken broth water.
Eno Sarris
1:16
Yes, I am as well. Or at least leaving poop tonnes of yeast in em.

Tyler Skaggs - what are your thoughts on the early returns? Can he be a top 40 arm ROS? Do you think a shutdown is possible or will they likely let him go given previous innings total and the need to build for next year?
Eno Sarris
1:16
Top 50, should pitch going forward.

Are you buying Christian Arroyo as the Giants' 3B of the future?
Eno Sarris
1:16
They so good at this. And I do like Arroyo from what I've seen.

What does Diaz's K/9 rate stabilize at?
Eno Sarris
1:18
11/12?

Hey Eno, I want to order your book and I'd happily pay regular price but I'm also cheap, so could you post the site and discount code in here? I heard it on a podcast but didn't write it down.

Upcoming Friday night dilemma: Do I join girlfriend's office outing (and presumably free tickets) to AT&T for Giants/Braves, or go to anniversary party @ Drakes brewery? It is my B'day weekend, she is good with either one
Eno Sarris
1:19
Damn the Public House is pretty amazing, and so is AT&T. I'd poke around to see how good the tickets are because I'm a snot, but you're allowed to be a snot on your birthday.

I believe you were pretty high on Rodon in your last SP ranks. Any update on your thoughts after his first start back from the DL?
Eno Sarris
1:21
Kept his higher velocity that made him more attractive, had some of his best sink on his pitches, didn't walk the lineup. I still like him as a top 75 guy if barely.
Electric
1:21
Hey Eno, remember when you called that Venable walk-off in San Diego against the Mets? Good times. Hope all is well.
Eno Sarris
1:22
Man I love that guy. What a smile. Really nice guy. Hope he finds a soft landing.

Is Tommy Joseph likely to improve at all in the future, or is he something like a 1-win player at best?
Eno Sarris
1:22
I don't see the plate discipline... maybe he can all power his way to two wins.
Wily Mo

Heading to San Diego for a wedding in October. Only gonna be there two days. Staying in the gaslamp district. Any must go breweries or beer stores in that area? I'm driving, so I plan on stocking up on some stuff.
Eno Sarris
1:23
BottleCraft in Little Italy for take homes and some tasting. I love love Neighborhood in the gas lamp, and enjoyed Half Door brewing there, too. Monkey Paw is good, brewery and bar.
1:24
Modern Times tasting room is near Hamilton's and Toronado's in North Park if you leave the hood at all. MT has take homes.
Tom
1:24
are you dropping mccullers in a 14 tm mixed? not competing this year
Eno Sarris
1:24
you have ot keep him.
Steve

What's the worst food that a city is known for and why is it Primanti brothers?
Eno Sarris
1:24
no. Skyline Chili.
Art Vandelay
1:24
Wait wait wait wait wait...you can eat Nashville hot chicken CAKED with spice, but you can't handle pizza? It's the cheese, huh?
Eno Sarris
1:24
Yeah and tomatoes.
Erik
1:24
Is fouling pitches off a skill? What sort of value does it have? Would a short sample of tons of foul balls predict things in the near future? Bad things? No things?
Eno Sarris
1:25
It is a skill, from what I've seen. Can help contact rate and K%.
Wily Mo
1:25
When do you start believing results and not advanced metrics? JA Happ has been really good for awhile now. Thoughts on him? I'm 12.5 points back in 12tm roto dynasty. Would you move JP Craw for him or Verlander? Too far back? Really need pitching help. How many good years does JV have left?
Eno Sarris
1:26
The ride / pop-up thing does help him a ton. I'd hold your assets if you're that far back though. Go to the wire.
Jim
1:26
who do you consider the best in game manager in the league?
Eno Sarris
1:26
Bochy?

Is that the thing with Smyly? He gives up some dingers? He was so good and then kind of unplayable, and now I'm like, sure, let's see what happens.
Eno Sarris
1:27
Curve is slightly wonky, but not enough that you'd think he'd fall apart. League wide HR surge hurting him, but a 1.24 HR/9 would be a 10% increase on career rate.
