You'd think it would be more of a contact hitter even, like an Altuve, but if you could smush Altuve's swing and mis with Votto's zone discipline, that's your 400 hitter.

Surprised that chatter couldn't find any good beer at Nats Park. They have local craft beer stands with 4 rotating locals on draft, and have cans of different Flying Dog, Atlas, and Port City with the roaming vendors.
Eno Sarris
1:09
Yeah it's a better beer park than Camden for sure.

negra modelo is GOAT macro if that counts

Oh yeah I always go Mexican Lager if that's an option actually. That or Dos Equis.

Re Dodgers lineup vs Nats, doesn't it come down to what you expect from Harper (WRC+ 120) going forward? If he's gonna be equivalent to Pederson (122), i'll take the Dodgers, who now have 8 regulars with a WRC+ over 100 (including both Puig and Reddick), compared to 6 on Nats. If Harper is back to being Harper, then they are a lot scarier.
Eno Sarris
1:10
Yeah, and injury is the real question. Harper true talent >>>>>>>> Joc, and I like Joc.

What's the biggest animal you think you could beat in a fight? I was listening to the Jalen and Jacoby podcast and they said a hyena. I almost yelled out at work that they would get torn to shreds by a hyena. Even two on one I'm taking hyena all day.
Eno Sarris
1:11
Oh man i just looked a Hyena in the eyes and yeah, I'll take my chances with a Capybara.

Hypothetical question: if a pitcher had literal PERFECT command of a 100-mph fastball, and nothing else, could he succeed in the majors? If so, would this work at 95? 90?
Eno Sarris
1:11
I mean, if he could hit that hole up and in 99 times out of 100... 90 might be too slow, but 95+??

Beer in twin cities was pretty good btw. Even Target Field had decent selection.
Eno Sarris
1:12
Yeah v underrated beer city. Might be third to SD/Seattle.
Hypotheticals
1:13
Say there was a player who was guaranteed to NEVER get a hit. What OBP would he need to be a playable everyday option, say, as a league-average SS?
Eno Sarris
1:13
I'm sorry, it's just not possible to walk enough to be valuable if your batting average is zero. Pitchers would push to a 70% zone rate.

I don't believe in hypothetical situations. That's like lying to your brain...
Neil

Maybe someone already mentioned it, but Walker is re-tooling his mechanics and delivery on the fly after his last blow up start. Might be cool to watch tonight.
Eno Sarris
1:14
Cool but maybe not fun if you're a Mariners fan.

Cooler full of light beer in the desert? Drink the beer then drink your pee.

In this scenario, our player has the freakish ability to foul off pitches until he gets a walk! (But he can't hit them)
Eno Sarris

Who is going to be the star pitcher that gets hurt batting, that finally convinces the NL to adopt the DH?
Eno Sarris
1:15
God that is how it works isn't it.

Why do teams who are getting new front offices sometimes force the front office to work with the current manager (Twins and Molitor)?
Eno Sarris
1:15
Maybe it's not so forceful. "You can fire him at some point and that'll save your job for another year-plus"
Allen
1:16
If you were Coppy what would you give up for Puig?
Eno Sarris
1:16
Pitching? Hopefully not Soroka, or Teheran, but most of them in between.

There simply is not enough AB’s next year for Schwaber, Baez and Soler. Soler is the most likely to go. What type of pitcher prospect do you think the cubs could get for Soler in the offseason? Top 75-100 prospect with solid 3 ceiling?
Eno Sarris
1:16
I always thought a vet pitcher would be the return.

Salazar @ MIN Friday. Lots of Ks last two starts. But hasn't gone 6 innings in a while. Good streaming option? Think he can get a QS?
Eno Sarris
1:17
I'll take that start for sure.

If you're the Nationals, how worried are you right now about Strasburg?
Eno Sarris

Very

Capybara is a good choice. No claws. What about a manatee? You could probably just fat shame it to death
Eno Sarris
1:17
Or it would smother me.

Who has the best pure “stuff” in the majors right now? I’d probably say Fernandez.
Eno Sarris
1:18
I love that Max Scherzer has so many plus pitches though.

How did you do in your leagues this year, and do you ever wish you had just one league?
