What is the floor for Peraza next year? Do you think he will get enough PT to anchor the SB category on a 5x5 ottoneu team. Thinking about dropping Dee and using Peraza as my keeper instead.
Eno Sarris
12:43
I wouldn't do that.

Is there any rule that prohibits tattoos on pitcher’s arms? I always wonder why a pitcher wouldn’t get tattoos of baseballs up and down his pitching forearm to add deception.

I know they've made people wear long sleeves before...

Your wife "will let you sit for an hour". Please explain because...you travel for a living, to follow baseball games. Don't act like you're roughin' it.
Eno Sarris

Oh just have two toddler boys and getting an hour on the weekend to not follow them around and keep them from killing each other is something I'd take if it was given to me.

Some days I go on Youtube and watch Pedro Martinez pitching highlights. Has there ever been a filthier pitcher than 1997-200 Pedro? That changeup was breathtaking!
Eno Sarris
12:45
I once took a look at if every pitch he threw was a top-five pitch in the league. It was actually much closer than I thought.

Is there difference in beer from a can vs. beer from a bottle?
Eno Sarris
12:46
Can more likely to be fresh and unaffected by light, should be fresher.

What would an A's/Reddick reunion look like this offseason? 3/42?
Eno Sarris
12:46
I get this feeling that they can't offer more than 3/36. I've never heard a larger number. That's what they supposedly offered him before.

My mother once told me that I needed to have more hobbies than baseball or I was going to find myself uninteresting. I showed her! Here I am! Being interesting!

Please ignore my previous question regarding Dahl. I finally found a recent update on David Dahl's status from the Denver Post (which might be of interest to other chatters who were wondering the same thing as me): http://www.denverpost.com/2016/09/14/david-dahl-colorado-rockies/.

Fatigued I guess. Weird.

An underrated thing about moving up in the minors is that the seasons get longer. I saw Bryce Harper play alongside Mike Trout in the AFL the year before they debuted in MLB and they both were dragging ass, Trout more than Harper though. He went in hard at second in the All-Star game with that eye black dripping, made everyone mad.

Why is an expensive old slugger with bad defense worth more than just Puig in the first place?
Eno Sarris
12:49
Everything comes down to how you value Puig. They don't seem to value him that highly, having put him on waivers and the like.
I, myself, like Puig and would trade for him.

Reds pitchers are only 7 HRs short of surrendering 241, the all-time team record. At -0.6 WAR, they are withing striking distance of being the first team ever to pitch at below replacement level all year. I hate to pile on but...wow.
Eno Sarris

One of my BOLD, BOLD okay BOLD, predictions was that they'd produce three top 50 pitchers. lol. I like Straily as a back end guy, Desclafani as a two, and if Iglesias isn't so brittle, he could be a 1/2. It looks bad, but part of it was injury. The other part was Finnegan (better recenlty) and Lamb (woof) not working out.

Cotton's K rate will improve over time, yes?
Eno Sarris
12:52
For sure. I wouldn't be surprised if it's not elite, though. I found that changeups relate to K% less than other pitchers, so he might get some weak contact from that filthy, filthy thing.

Does Schimpf settle in as a 2-3 WAR player?
Eno Sarris
12:52
1.5-2.5. He'll be a guy for a while, but not sure you want him starting when you're going good.

Travis Jankowski, an every day 1st-2nd division regular?
Eno Sarris
12:52
I like him a little better because of the defense.

$100m for Chapman this winter?
Eno Sarris
12:53
Oh man. $100m for a reliever. I know that money is worth less over time, but that would create a real uneasy feeling in my tummy.

Got a new job? Drink a beer to celebrate! Lost your job? Drink a beer to drown your sorrows! Got married? Cheers have a beer! Getting a divorce? Let's go drink a beer! Is there any more useful tool in this world?
Eno Sarris
12:54
This is almost literally what Bill Spaceman Lee said to me about beer.

Which guy do you want on your bench to try and grab a steal here and there? Rajai, Dyson, Broxton, Gardner, Quinn
Eno Sarris
12:54
Rajai best combo of predictable playing time and plus speed?

Going to Vermont and Maine next week...other than Heady Topper, do you recommend any Brews I should look for?
Eno Sarris
12:55
Focal Banger, Lawson's Sip of Sunshine (and doubles), Fiddlehead, and if you can get up to Hill Farmstead or find some on tap, anything. oh in Maine, Bissell Brothers and Maine Brewing.

Feel for Alex Dickerson's long term value?
Eno Sarris
12:56
Might have to platoon and I'm worried about the defense but I see some growth potential in the bat (power wise, maybe patience) that could get him to 115 wRC+ or so? He's a find.

Eduardo at home against the yanks tonite?
Eno Sarris
12:56
Risky to me. Do it if you're comfortable with risk.
