Is Jon Gray going to be that guy that can beat Coors more often than not?
Eno Sarris
12:57
I like that he just threw as many curves as slider in a game for the first time, and it was at home. I like him.

How many Nick Markakis questions are you getting today?
Eno Sarris
12:57
This is the first.
Andrew Toles

Am I for real?

This is a more common question. He's outperforming his projected power most of all, but his backstory is so checkered, in terms of providing good sample for the projections, that I'm more comfortable upping his true talent to something like .275/.325/.425 at least, which is pretty good.

Verducci has a history of being wrong about the Nationals. if you'll pardon 3-year-old self-linkage: https://hscer.wordpress.com/2013/10/11/fotf-ryan-zimmerman-and-tom-verducci/

Could be a source that's not as clued in as he thinks he is.

What's logically inconsistent about saying "I consider a team's playoff qualification to boost a player's MVP candidacy"? It may be dumb, but it's not inconsistent to apply a "playoff bonus."
Eno Sarris

It's conflating a personal award with team factors?

Eno: does the fact that McCullers has had two injuries in one season scare you off of him in dynasty leagues? Should I shop him? 16 team pts. league. Wins and losses don't matter but IPs do.
Eno Sarris
1:00
Can't shop him at nadir.

City buses have two speeds: gas and brake. Coasting gently is not allowed its the rule.

Best possible ownership group: the players themselves, with an appointed steward to represent their interests and oversee a traditional front office. Will it happen by 2100?
Eno Sarris
1:01
No, but what about a team bought by former players? That could happen much sooner, with Derek Jeter making noise.

Nomination for prettiest swing of a terrible hitter: Alex Avila
Eno Sarris
1:02
It's certainly not Rich Hill's swing.

At what point does FIP not matter for a pitcher? For example Julio Teheran.. He's out-performed it for 4 years now.. But every year people say he's not as good as it seems... uhh
Eno Sarris

Scan down to batted ball stats, multiply FB% by IFFB% in your head, if it's over 4%, that player has a repeatable skill that will beat FIP (but is included in WAR).

What do you think of Jharel Cotton?
Eno Sarris
1:04
The more I watch the more I like. I don't know why he doesn't have the upside of a 2, maybe even more at his peak. I love his changeup, it's so nasty, and his other stuff is good too.

Is Bedrosion the favorite for saves going into 2017 in LAA
Eno Sarris
1:04
Favorite for most saves in the season, perhaps, but not at the beginning.

Favorite Canadian beer? Also - if you ever make it as far as Nova Scotia, they have some ridiculously sneaky good beers. Like weeping tears good.

I haven't been a commish in any yahoo leagues, but just wondering. I know a commish can change other team's lineups, etc, but can they change stats? Questioning one of the leagues I'm in and not sure if I am just being paranoid lol.
Eno Sarris
1:05
No.

Which Atlanta pitching prospect are you very high on that doesn't get much attention?
Eno Sarris
1:05
Soroka?

Is there room for Gsellman in the opening day rotation? Lugo?
Eno Sarris
1:05
Lugo ahead of Gsellman, and probably one gets in.

Holy crap, how many shortstops are going to end up with 25+ HR this year?
Eno Sarris
1:06
All of them.

Were you joking about ODB(I don't generally put him in my top 5 wu-tang)? I'd vote Inspectah Deck or Ghostface
Eno Sarris

It's a great group, and I feel like there's no consensus on any of this. RZA and GZA did a lot of the behind the scenes stuff which is super important, and if you give them credit for that...
