does canada consider you a terrorist now or something?
Eno Sarris
12:01
no, just didn't know if I needed a visa to "talk" at a "venue" about "baseball". Sure, German dude, sure.

you know, there is actually some hard evidence that he's not very good at handling a bullpen!

Why do people think/say that it is world series or bust for the cubs? They have an 18.6% chance on the playoff odds posted on fangraphs. Is this always the thinking for good teams or is this line of thinking due to their WS drought?
Eno Sarris
12:02
That's also the highest number right?

Hey, that Vine of your kids is the most adorable fantasy baseball advice since we found out Szymborski's cats run ZiPS.

Last Thursday I took acid and chatted. My team did not transcend, I felt like a walking piece of shit... in a stupid looking jacket.

Any idea why the Phillies AA park in Reading, Pa has become such a launching pad? From the area and I just can't come up with a logical explanation.
Eno Sarris
12:04
hey that seems like a fun thing to try and figure out!

How many chances do us Torontonians get for an Eno sighting this week?
Eno Sarris
12:05
Today I'll show up an hour early for Pitch Talks (www.PitchTalksBaseball.com) and you can get $5 off if you use code 'fangraphs'. And tomorrow I'll be at BarHop on Peter Street at five pm! With bells on.
Oh and then I'm going to the game, which will be awesome, eh?

Had a dream the other night. Was looking to buy a present for girl I had a crush on in high school. Couldn't find anything good. Then the Sleeper and the Bust podcast came on. It was a video edition. And Eno was getting chased by a very aggressive fan yelling about Alex Bregman. The chase went on for a while, but I didn't get to see how it ended cause Sporer cut in complaining about the audio quality. What does it all mean?
Eno Sarris
12:06
I'm glad I chatted today is what it means.

Felipe Rivero had been a starter in the minors with inconsistent results, but from everything I can tell, his changeup didn’t breakthrough as a plus pitch until he became a reliever. In fact, it didn’t even seem part of his repertoire. Now it’s arguably his best pitch to compliment a strong fastball and an effective slider. Knowing that he now has three pitches to work from, do you think the Pirates should experiment with him as a starter this spring?
Eno Sarris
12:06
For sure I think they will because they are crafty like that.

A little "You can get with this, or you can get with that" for 2017: Cron or Bour? Kang or Gurriel? Capps or Buchter?
Eno Sarris
12:07
Well this fits the theme today so I gotta
Bour. Kang. Buchter.

Between Steven Brault, Trevor Williams, and Chad Kuhl, which of those three do you think has the best likelihood to become a respectable starting pitcher?
Eno Sarris
12:07
Bro, it's Brault.

If the White Sox can find a solid DH/corner bat, catcher and a part-time CF, would it make sense for them to go for it again next year? I'm thinking something like Braun, McCann and maybe bring back Austin Jackson to help out Tilson in CF. Is that and a couple minor pieces enough to make putting off a rebuild worth it?
Eno Sarris

Their core is actually top five in the American League by most metrics. Yes I think one more try at improving depth is a good idea, particularly with Anderson looking cromulent.

Is there a pitcher that just confuses you?
Eno Sarris
12:09
Happ maybe. I mean I *know* he has the biggest separation between the 4s and 2s in terms of vertical movement and that he has good command and that he has rise and all that. But when you watch him...

Do expanded rosters give unfair advantage to teams with better current farm systems? They have more impactful minor leaguers to help, compared to some other teams.
Eno Sarris
12:10
There are a lot of crappy things about September but I don't think I'd call that an 'unfair' advantage, given that your minor league system is part of your entire system and so seems pretty above board to try and have a good farm system.

Is Tyler Austin starting for the Yankees on Opening Day 2017?
Eno Sarris
12:10
No.

Eno, I saw Aaron Judge a few weekends ago in Anaheim and honestly, his swing looked long and slow relative to the expectations set by his prospect ranking. He still smoked a single, but seemed behind pretty pedestrian fastballs. I'm no scout, so tell me why I'm wrong and biased against tall guys.
