After wading into the Kaepernick thing, when he really didn't have to, that has to be the final straw on LaRussa's tenure, don't you think?
Eno Sarris
12:14
Passan ripped him a new one.

seems like a lot of articles on FG about speed being the new fantasy scarcity with the 'juiced ball'...how does this move the needle on 1D players like C Carter and K/Chris Davis, or conversely guys like Peraza and Mallex Smith?
Eno Sarris
12:14
Wouldn't be surprised if the retroactive numbers prefer the 1 category speedsters over the power guys. I think Chris Carter's ISO actually went down relative to the league!

I'm getting married in Negril, but don't want to do the all-inclusive resort to avoid making guests pay the resort fees. Any experience/ideas of places to look into that would be on the beach and can host 100 guests?
Eno Sarris
12:18
That size.. I think Negril Beach Club? I used to hang at smaller places like Alfred's and Silver Sand but it's all one beach. If you identify a spot that can house the wedding party, book all those rooms, and then help people find stuff along the beach. It's seriously like 15 minutes walk to great hotels, some super small, some bigger and more first world, your guests won't have trouble.

David Ross is on pace to have the 2nd best season of his career by WAR at age 39. He is 7th among all NL catchers in WAR (1.8), despite not playing full-time...just behind Yadier Molina. Who saw that coming?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Grandpa Rossy!

There seems to be a Singlecut shortage where I am. Any other widely available New England style IPAs to try in the meantime?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Not many are widely available. Tree House, Trillium don't distribute much. Maybe you'll see more Trillium now that they are canning.
12:20
Grimm and Other Half and Threes make some too.

In a hypothetical Puig/Braun swap how much value would LA have to add to make a deal?
Eno Sarris
12:22
I mean I love this rumor and I'd really think about it if I were the Brewers. Puig would paint that town red. I don't know about BMac, I think the Dodgers would have to add a young starting pitcher, like a De Leon before he was De Leon now. Brewers would do it to get younger, cheaper, and get the arm.

What is Raisel's role in 2017?
Eno Sarris
12:23
One last try at starting, I'd guess. Because otherwise why would you pitch him two innings at a time.
Erik Guy

Hi Eno, before the bball chat, I have a brewery recommendation. Not sure how often you get out to the DC area, but next time you do, check out my buddy's craft brewery, he makes some unbelievable stuff. Denizen's Brewing Co, in Silver Springs, legit!!!

Would love to just get your general overall opinion of Strasburg. Think he would be healthy enough to be a keeper going into next year?
Eno Sarris
12:24
He's so good I'll go to the trough if he's anything cheaper than an ace. But if you're keeping three/four and he's your only pitcher keeper... yeah that would make me nervous. With the forearm again.

12:25
what team that will miss the playoffs this year do you think will have the best turnaround next year?
Eno Sarris
12:26
Yankees and Astros in the AL, Pirates and ... Pirates in the NL. In each case, a little bit of pitching, found, grown, or bought will make a difference.
Roberto Clemente
12:26
As someone who has watched Adam Frazier at all levels, I’m personally not surprised to see him hitting this way. With the obvious caveat being it’s not a huge sample size; do you think he can be anything more than just a utility guy? Keep in mind, this is a Cistulli guy we're talking about!
Eno Sarris
12:27
Little worried this power is over his head, and if that goes, he's a one-tooler in the outfield, which sounds like a utility guy.
(it's a really good hit tool though)
Walt Schmaltz
12:27
Does either Morgan or Asher stand out as a possible back-end starter for next year's Phils?
Eno Sarris
12:28
Definitely not the first. Probably not on the second.

What's your best guess on FA contracts for these unexciting players: Nova, Hellickson, Prado, Jay, Fister, A. Blanco
Eno Sarris
12:28
The pitchers might do pretty well. Jaime Garcia might be the best free agent pitcher. The hitters will get one, two-year small deals.
Bob
12:29
As a Pirates fan, how worried should I be that Josh Bell won’t ever be able to play even replacement level defense at first?
Eno Sarris
12:29
The hitting looks good enough that he'll find his place.
Elton
12:29
Optimistic for Vince Velasquez next year?
Eno Sarris
12:30
For all the bellyaching he might get to 140 innings this year, and by K-BB those were pretty awesome innings. I'll buy again next year, particularly at SP3/4 prices.

Eno: end of fake teams season for me, so I'm already thinking about keepers for next year. In a 16 team pts. league (low deductions for Ks at .3) do you like Jose Ramirez or Keon Broxton as my last OF after Trumbo and Blackmon? Keep 12.
Eno Sarris
12:30
Rather Ramirezes flexibility than Broxton's risk.

Matt Kemp and Jason Heyward have nearly the same WAR, of course by entirely different ways. Who would you rather have on your team?
Eno Sarris
12:31
Heyward. Younger, more ready to turn it around. If it was just *right now* I guess Kemp might help more, you can always find a defensive replacement OF.

if Rob Zastryzny and Marc Rzepczynski were on the same team, would the world explode?
Eno Sarris
12:31
Autocorrect would correct itself into a black hole.
Erik
12:31
Has there been a season to season drop off by a young superstar in recent memory which is as large as the gap between '15 Bryce Harper and '16 Bryce Harper? Does this ever happen without injury?
Eno Sarris
12:32
But there was injury! I suspect that most of these dropoffs like this are injury related, reported or no.
Kristen

AL Manager and Exec of the year? Has to be Banister and JD for putting together the best record in the AL despite not having Darvish, Lucroy and Beltran for the entire first half of the season.
