Local reporter suggests the White Sox need to blow it up. Fans are already apathetic, why not give it a shot? Chris Sale, for starters, would bring a monster return. What say you?

Because the guys in the FO are probably close to getting the axe and they built for a window. And in the offseason, it's all about optimism. They'll buy a free agent or two and that'll be it for their last shot.

In the words of the great Andy McCullough: Why are you yelling at me.

So Eno, I turned 21 on Tuesday, and I live in Cincinnati, What should I start with? I have never had a drink in my life. So cast a wide net for me.

Rheingeist. Start with a session pale ale!

Your reaction when you heard about the three team deal with the headliner being Jeff Francoeur.
Eno Sarris
12:18
I scrolled down.

thoughts on Ryon Healy? He's basically Maikel Franco with a few fewer walks, right?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Got a piece coming on him. He made the big swing adjustment that power hitters should make, and I believe in him. I see him pulling in one power alley for homers and pushing in the other for doubles, which I really like.

Lowest average exit velocity allowed among pitchers with at least 200 BIP this season-Tyler Anderson. Is this dude for real?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Ton of cutters. Some funk. I'll buy him but I just can't trust Rox at home.

What's the best (gasp!) gluten-free beer you've ever had? Has anything come close to, like, actual beer?
Eno Sarris
12:20
Still looking for one I like.

Eno - thanks as always. Is Justin Upton about to go on his annual Upton run?
Eno Sarris
12:20
He does usually have a hot month, and I think he has one in him still.

Did you notice Manaea dominated last start as basically a fastball-changeup guy? Is this a bad sign for his slider or just a good sign for his change?
Eno Sarris
12:21
His slider has recently gotten harder, but just barely. He's up to 81 or 82, and that's still slow. I think he needs a little more gas on that.

Thanks for all the great stuff! We're quite a few regular readers in Israel.

Awesome! Did you see this masterpiece of mine? http://www.fangraphs.com/not/jurickson-shofar/ Deserves an award of some sort.

Do you buy that it's a problem when a team clinches too early? That players lose their edge into the playoffs? Or is that poppycock?
Eno Sarris
12:23
Seems like poppycock.

Gary Sanchez and Devon Travis walk into a bar.
Eno Sarris
12:23
I'd guess Travis walks under the bar though.

A's stocking up on Cistulli guys (Cotton, Semien, now Schrock) makes me very, very happy.
Eno Sarris
12:23
People mock them as "performance prospects" but Cistulli spotted Mookie Betts and Marcus Semien before they were on top 100 lists.

Deadline in a week - keeper league and need pitching reinforcement. Do I trade Fernandez for DeGrom and Taillon? Set me up good for next year as well and should help with WHIP/ERA cats and I think Taillon could be the next DeGrom type fantasy pitcher (low era/whip/ 9 k/9)
Eno Sarris
12:25
Taillon's still a pitch short and de Grom's not really worrying me, but if you're in it now, dunno. If it's for next year, I like getting the extra pitcher. Quantity is great!

Sometimes music is composed for video games. Sometimes that music is awesome.

Sometimes it just sounds like a video game and is awesome.

Thoughts on Berrios and Musgrove? What does each need to do to succeed in the Show?
Eno Sarris
12:30
Man give Berrios Musgrove's command and you'd be set. Give Musgrove Berrios' curveball and he'd be set. Sorta answers the question, but you can't mush people together I think that's illegal.
Carlos Mencias still alive?
12:30
Eno can you talk a little about Greinke? Confused as to how a solid, perennial ~3 ERA guy, can be this volatile and untrustworthy. Certainly can't just be park factors right? What's going on?
Eno Sarris
12:31
A bunch of pitchers told me they hate pitching in Arizona because of the grip on their slider. I'm not saying that Greinke has admitted that to me, but it is his slider that's been a little wonky.
neo...from the matrix!
