I'm listening to your podcast while reading your chat. What is too much Eno, Eno??

So, is Graveman the A's ace going forward? He's been quietly excellent this season, while Gray has exploded and is hurt.
Eno Sarris
12:47
Nah, he's a prototypical innings three at this point.
Sonny
12:47
long time admirer of Bauer but I get the feeling he's much more interested in process than results and that's a hard mindset to succeed with at that level.
Eno Sarris
12:47
He was bummed last year, he's in a way better mood this year. He may care a lot about process, but he cares about results.
Nickle Toucher
12:47
Any thoughts on the Giants' collapse?
Eno Sarris
12:47
They'll hit again.
12:48
Their bullpen is probably the worst it's been in a while, but I still like some guys at the back end.
Boberto
12:48
Like what you saw from Cobb? Little shaky early on but seemed to find it
Eno Sarris
12:48
No. His splitter had no drop.

Kyle Hendricks handing the ball off to Aroldis Chapman, the biggest stuff differential in baseball?
Eno Sarris
12:48
Imagine that happening to you. Shudders.
Todd
12:49
Speaking of former Pirates and contracts, what about Neil Walker? Historically, he's been a better play up through his contract year than Murphy was. That said, this back issue seems to have elevated that lingering problem from "inconvenience but manageable" to "oh crap this might be a serious red flag". What are you thinking?
Eno Sarris
12:49
QO.

Thoughts on CJ Edwards
Eno Sarris
12:49
Love that rising almost cut fastball. those fingers.
zach
12:50
who is the least valuable going foward, kelvin herrera, david robertson, ken giles, or edwin diaz?
Eno Sarris
12:50
Herrera in a saves league. SV+HLD maybe Robertson.
JD15
12:50
Don't think I saw anything about Strasburg above...how does his injury (if season ending) change the NL playoff picture? Dodgers favorites to meet Cubs in NLCS?
Eno Sarris
12:51
Nationals still pretty good, and they look a lot more like the Dodgers in the rotation now. Isn't their lineup better? Bullpen is a pickem?
Eno's Whathestalkingabout
12:51
Post this for the Name if nothing else.. Would you rather be an Ace Pitcher, Top Closer, or Top position player?
Eno Sarris
12:51
Position Player from a money standpoint. Ace pitcher otherwise. More days off. More thinking.
Rojo
12:51
What time are you going on the Jeff Blair show tomorrow?
Eno Sarris
12:51
11:30 local
Phantom of the Chakras
12:52
You made me sad about Cobb the other day.
Eno Sarris
12:52
And then I did it there just again. I'm sad. Maybe he'll find the splitter in the next outing.
Todd
12:52
Re: Your Walker response. Are you saying he should accept the QO? If offered and he rejects, what kind of contract could you see him getting?
Eno Sarris
12:52
I could really see him getting a QO and taking it.
Eno's Whathestalkingabout
12:53
Who was the pitcher that threw a no spin pitch with a Forkball grip? (Cuello or something like that). How does PitchFx process that?
Eno Sarris
12:53
Gets change tumble, gets the change label, probably. Cuello had a true Forkleball, almost a knuckler, so side to side would have messed up Pfx a little.
Bob
12:53
Need to drop one of Buchholz or Bettis to activate Kershaw. Bettis has SD twice.
Eno Sarris
12:53
Clay!
Josh
12:53
I'm not a scouting expert, but I don't think there's supposed to be a ton of 80 grade tools at any time, 70 is plus-plus. I think 80 is supposed to be pretty rare, like Stanton's power or Hamilton's speed. I don't think you can fairly say, Lindor is to hit tool, as Stanton is to power, as Hamilton is to speed. That's way too generous.
Eno Sarris
12:54
That occurred to me, but also having ten guys in the league with 80 hit tool doesn't seem like too much to me. We're talking about at least 300 MLB position players, and the grades extend to the minors...
Anyway, I'm a Big Hall guy too.
Jay
12:55
Easier to learn and command a change up or curve ball?
Eno Sarris
12:55
I think most people think curve, but it ends up being one to one half the population and the other to the other half. Personal mechanics I guess.
Jordan
12:55
Are you on board with the Jays making a move for Votto in the offseason and resigning one of Bautista or EE? I'm aware that the likely scenerio with this front office is that they resign no one and not trade for Votto, but it's fun to think about
Eno Sarris
12:56
I bet they sign the cheaper hitter, and I think that's Bautista, but people have pointed out that Bautista is going for his first big payday and may push for every extra dollar. Doubt they do Votto trade.
