Dave Cameron wrote about how players who sign with different teams rather than being extended tend to underperform relative to expectations. Does this mean maybe the A's think Reddick's defense has actually declined like the metrics say and that's why they wouldn't go for a fourth year? Or are they just too broke to gamble?

They offered him 3/36 or something, and that's just not enough, and it sounds too much like 3/30 to Butler... might just be their best offer to anyone. Which.... yeah.

Sierra Nevada is a gateway beer for sure. I went Sierra Nevada > Lagunitas IPA > everything else. I used to love Sierra Nevada but I really don't like it anymore. Drake's 1500 is my new pale ale jam

Talking to everyone in the village is tedious, but one of them will have an important clue!

Do you have long-term concerns about Kershaw?
Eno Sarris

Backs are terrible. Won't it be a surgery one year?

Benintendi has -0.1 defensive WAR thus far. HOW COME HE SUCKS SO MUCH AT DEFENSE?

Eno Sarris

About to break the record for ground ball rate by a first baseman.

do managers matter that much? does bochy get loads of credit for 3 world series rings?
Eno Sarris

I think 1-3 wins a year.

Honest question, how do you keep track of all the beers you're had and what they taste like? I'm impressed with your ability to name beers you like from different breweries off the top of your head and provide recommendations based on other beers people have liked. But there are SO DAMN MANY BEERS, how do you keep it all straight?
Eno Sarris
1:32
Untappd, which chronicles all of my ratings for me, and feeds www.beergraphs.com leaderboards.

New rule idea: you can pick up bases and be safe wherever you take them, but you can only carry one base at a time, and the runners coming in behind you still have to follow the basepaths, so you can steal second no problem, but the next guy has to make it to second to make it anywhere until someone returns first to its ancestral home.

RE: Reds pitchers: wouldn't u say Straily is working out?
Eno Sarris
1:33
Yeah and he has the worst 'stuff' of the bunch. Well, maybe that's not fair. He has top-five vertical movement separation between fastball and change. Decent slider. Tons of pitchability.

What are some of the best books for people looking to getting into sabermetrics?
Eno Sarris
1:34
Big Data baseball for a survey of what's going on in clubhouses/FOs. Inside the Book by Tom Tango. Baseball Hacks.

Hey Eno, sorry just to clarify you would sit Taillon out him, Hellickson and Santana tomorrow? I just need to sit 1, can start 2 of 3...
Eno Sarris
1:34
Oh sit Santana.

If you get Lasik, are you a cyborg? Just a little?
Eno Sarris

No, but when we start three-d printing ligaments...

Re: JBJ. When are we going to stop saying "We just didn't see that kind of power in the minors."? It's obvious to me the coaching is better at the ML Level. Naquin/Kepler are recent success stories. M. Carpenter in St. Louis, is now one of the better power hitters in baseball, showed little in the minors. It's an approach for these guys. If you have good hands, bat speed, you can hit HR"s.
Eno Sarris

In 1200 career plate appearances, JBJ has a .172 ISO, which is where I would peg him.

Just wanted to dump my salt somewhere..... Traded lindor and rendon for story 20 hour before new hits of his ligament damage
Eno Sarris

Was popular answer for first-half MVP at the ASG, and, sure.
Rodger
1:37
I guess the way to get an answer here is ask about Robbie Ray or IPA beers. What a joke
Eno Sarris
1:37
I answer about 7% of the questions, maybe 10%. Ask better.

Brett Anderson could be back next week. A difference maker ROS or Hyun Jin Ryu 2.0?
Eno Sarris
1:38
Not a difference maker, but for people looking for non-crappy innings from the back end of their rotation, Anderson is usually good for about 40 innings a season. Ryu's a shoulder, those are really tricky. Not saying back injuries suck, but Anderson is pitching now.
Matt from Boston

Holliday or Pence for 3OF spot?
Eno Sarris
1:38
Holliday.
