Opinion on Ariel Miranda? Useful streamer?
Eno Sarris
12:57
I've been using him at home and on the road against weaker teams. Interesting that Seattle is playing more average this year though.

That's like Brett Cecil's agent this off-season. LEFTY CAN PITCH.

As we now have such a high number of high 90s to 100s pitchers relative to the past, do you think we'll see the top end of velocity limits increase or are we currently maxing out the limits of our anatomy?

Casey Weathers threw 108 at Driveline. He was sorta running when he threw, but 108.

A's secretly competitive next year? Hope Gray was a fluke/injury and watch some of the young guys develop? Can see a run at 85 wins without squinting

They're getting closer. Healy/Semien/Lowrie are a Wendle/Pinder breakout from being a decent infield. Davis/Vogt capable. Graveman a fine 3/4, Cotton and Manaea have frontline and huge breakout potential. Add a healthy Gray and another bullpen addition (they seem to buy one every year), and that at least looks like .500 to me.

Which of the Dodger players will the Giants sign: Turner, Hill, Jansen?
Eno Sarris
1:00
Oh man they'll want Jansen so bad.

Is Salazar cuttable?
Eno Sarris
1:00
Yes. Sadly.

Re: H2h what do you think Eno? Roto is the fairest way to gauge a team but half the owners lose interest midseason right?
Eno Sarris
1:01
That's about right. I've been in some roto leagues with second half awards to combat that.

Do you think that the braves new park next year will play more hitter or pitcher friendly than turner field?
Eno Sarris
1:01
The biggest determinants of park factor are temperature and altitude, I believe, so about the same. Unless the walls are nutso.

This has a link to something Matt Swartz wrote when at BP
Eno Sarris

Yeah, the home pitcher knows exactly when he'll pitch and the away pitcher has to sit. I've seen some pitchers talk about changing up their pregame to account for this.

Hi Eno. I'm worried about Baltimore's lack of a Sagittarius. How does not having a warrior-sage affect their chances in October?

Don't believe everything you think... even if we do.

Atlanta having Cigar City Jai Alai makes me not so homesick

What beer is Mike Trout? What beer is Matt Kemp?
Eno Sarris
1:03
Deschutes Abbys for Trout, Bourbon County Stout for Kemp. One great and somehow underrated, the other has great power and is very overrated.

Can you predict some comps for Maikel Franco? Interesting profile even in a down year
Eno Sarris
1:06
Other guys with K% and ISOs like I think Franco can have next year: Jose Abreu, Marcell Ozuna, Adam Jones...

Frazier has 36/97!!
Eno Sarris
1:07
OBP/SLG pretty boring though.
all those popups suck.
Matt

Think the Yanks should target Hellickson next year? Think they will?
Eno Sarris
1:07
I don't think they should. I wouldn't put him in that park.
E5

Pitchers to make their debut this season have been terrible! Any of them you particularly feel will figure it out with some time?
Eno Sarris
1:08
It's been a bad year to debut, what with the juiced ball.
I think they'll figure it out.

Had a good chuckle last night when Sutcliffe discussed Porcello's "spin ratio"
Eno Sarris
1:09
RPM is a ratio, I guess, but hah.

I know we shouldn't get into the granular on WAR (2.9 vs. 3.0)... but nonetheless, Gausman will be posting the first 3-win season from an O's SP in over a DECADE. That's a really long list of futility.
Eno Sarris
1:09
I'm not saying people shouldn't be happy. I wonder if Bundy can't be better if he stays healthy though.
(obviously that's like the biggest caveat of all times)
Deece

Votto's 2015-16 2nd half numbers are nuts. would like to see that over a full season and ppl still complain about how he doesnt produce.
Eno Sarris
1:09
.400 hitter if he did it all year?
