ENO, IS YOUR SONG A PRELUDE TO YOU DONATING MONEY TO US!? LUDE PARTY WITH FREE MONIES!

I was thinking the other way around.

Thompson v. Atl or Musgrove @ Tex?
Eno Sarris
12:01
Musgrove I guess. I can't in my right mind rec Thompson.

Will Ty Blach get a start? I'm tired of seeing Cain get destroyed, and Suarez isn't suddenly going to turn into a fantastic pitcher.
Eno Sarris
12:02
Peavy?

What do you think Moncada's situation is going to be for the rest of the season? Platoon 3B? Based on his MiLB track record, what can we expect as far as performance goes?
Eno Sarris
12:03
I was thinking a good case scenario for him this year was a Sano plus speed, but I can't see where the PT is. He hasn't played in LF and how's he going to split time with Shaw?

How you decide what to write about? I'm an inspiring baseball writer, and I always have trouble thinking of ideas. Do you have any tips? Much appreciated!
Eno Sarris

I have some crutches. Things I can do to find 'the best/biggest/smallest X' which can be an interesting to people. The biggest improvement in changeup movement, the biggest change in breaking ball usage, that sort of thing. But you can also see singular moments in baseball. Today I have a piece going up about Span vs Greinke in that game where Greinke only got one strikeout. That's only happened to him once before, in his rookie year, so even if I didn't have the quote from him, I'd be interested in just poking around the game logs for that game.

would you stream Desclafani this weekend vs the Cardinals?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Yes.
Youppi!

Ben Revere - 340 PAs, -1.0 WAR; Trea Turner 195 PAs, 2.2 WAR. While the wins in the NL East are likely irrelevant, had the Nationals not waited so damn long, how many more over the year could Turner have contributed? Does he stick in CF?
Eno Sarris
12:06
In their defense, it was obvious that they distrusted his defense at short -- when they first called him up, he played short, and they picked Espinosa over him there -- so it wasn't obvious at first where he should play.

Would you trust either or Kuhl or Vogelsong v. Stl next week?
Eno Sarris
12:07
in deeper leagues, or streaming situations where raw stats were more important to me than ERA/WHIp, maybe.
Marc
12:07
A couple starts in now for Luke Weaver--what are you seeing? Worth a keeper slot next season in a deep league?
Eno Sarris
12:08
Good fastball command, great change, still waiting to see on that curve. Nice to see he trusts it, but still hasn't gotten a single whiff on the pitch.

Hey Eno! Had a great time at the Pitch Talks on Monday. Did you drink the beer that was available at the Independent, or did you supply your own?
Eno Sarris
12:09
Hah. I paid for Lagunitas IPA on tap instead of drinking the free Anchor Steam in the back.

Is Ivan Nova legit now? What was holding him back on the Yankees--his K/BB looked solid all year, but something must have changed, right?
Eno Sarris
12:11
League changed mostly. He's throwing fewer sinkers and more four-seamers and curves, but he's still a two pitch guy if you don't count the fastballs separately. Not walking anyone, not giving up homers like he was, I think he's mostly the same guy but in a better situation.
Ray
12:11
Kiermaier or Andrew Toles ROS?
Eno Sarris
12:11
KK for me.
Daniel
12:12
Is Andrew Toles going to be a solid league average player?
Eno Sarris
12:13
Maybe, but right now there's a decent crowd in the corner outfield in LA.

Is it possible the letters on your birth certificate got jumbled, and your parents actually meant to name you Sea Norris?

As of today Ohio has lifted their ABV% ban on beer – excited the see some new beers in the area and what the local breweries can come up with!
Eno Sarris
12:13
I like that interlude.
Sonny

Hey Eno, recommend a saison to pair with tomorrow's Moncada debut I can find in New England?
Eno Sarris
12:14
I like the Mystic ones, and that seems appropriate.

You think Deolis 'you don't know the Javy' Guerra gets first crack at saves in LA, such as they are?
Eno Sarris
12:17
Bit of a tire fire down there. He doesn't have the velocity or ks or swinging strikes that are normally associated with a closer... JC Ramirez has the holds and the velo but where are the Ks. Ditto Valdez. I liked Morin once on Ks and he's getting whiffs, but he has fewer holds... Might say JCR.
Erik

If a team was built "backwards", with offense-first guys up the middle and defense-first guys in the corners (think guys like Cespedes in CF, maybe Matt Duffy at 3B) would the team be expected to do any better or worse than their projections? Would such a team be any more or less expensive to build?
Eno Sarris
12:18
Offense is still expensive, so it might not be cheaper. And, really, the free agent market is so limited. Mostly, you draft good players, find them places to play, and sign anyone that is a bargain and find them a place to play. I don't think teams have the luxury of planning out things that much.
Nick

So Seth lugo has this inane spin rate on his curve? That's kind of random. What does it mean exactly and for him as a pitching prospect?
Eno Sarris
12:19
insane! But maybe inane depending on how you feel about spin rate. But high spin rate curves are good, and Lugo's is one of those that looks like a fastball and then disappears downward. He couldn't throw it much in Vegas, so his numbers took a dive. I think he's actually decent, but he might need something beyond FB/CB.
