Pitchers get healthy, convince Yo to come back, figure out what to do with Walker (QO IMO), look for little bargains for depth, think about infield defense a little more.

What exactly makes Madison Bumgarner so tough? Is his cutter the most underrated pitch in baseball? It doesn't generate an inordinate number of swings and misses but it might be right up there with generating soft contact.
Eno Sarris
12:15
He's like John Lester -- everything comes out of the same slot, looks the same, and then changes after the batter has decided to swing. In his case it's a benefit that his curve doesn't drop ten inches. It needs to look like his cutter for longer.

Yulieski Gurriel's K rate is pretty awesome, how do you see his season playing out next year as he becomes acclimated to MLB?
Eno Sarris
12:16
why didn't he K less in the minors? I guess it was just such a tiny sample... It's all a tiny sample. I do think he can be a league average bat at the very least.

Dylan Bundy made 1.8 million this year in the last season of the MLB contract he signed after being drafted. He has two years before Arby's kicks in so do the O's cut his pay because they can these next two years or do Angelos & company act more diplomatically?
Eno Sarris
12:18
They will cut his pay for sure. Better do that before the Arby's hits the gut.

What's the deal with MLB not completing a deal with Comcast for participating as a pay tv partner in their post season tv streaming subscription? Do you know the back story?
Eno Sarris
12:18
So annoying.

Does Familia giving up the homerun last night negate the progress that could have been made in bullpen management based on the Britton decision?
Eno Sarris
12:20
Not to me, not at all. Things happen. You plan for the meat of the situation. The meat of the situation with Ubaldo vs Edwing was meatballs. Familia wins that battle with Gillaspie at least 80 times out of a 100, no?

Whats the current SABR stance on some players consistantly doing worse or better in Clutch situations? Exists or nah?

Beer question: Does the exclusivity of New Glarus in WI help or hurt it's business? I feel like I'd be less likely to have it each time I go to Wisconsin if it was more widely available.
Eno Sarris
12:21
It happens in a given year, but I haven't seen any evidence that it keeps hapening to the same people year to year.
New Glarus: helps, I think. Look at Russian River. So much hype factor.

ICYMI, August discussed whips, chains, and Kiermaier's endowment during his two chats this week. Thoughts?
Eno Sarris
12:22
Kiermaier is so very dreamy up top, know nothing about down low.
Blizz Jackson

Can Hyun-Soo Kim hit with more power next year or is what we see is what we get?
Eno Sarris
12:23
Maybe a little bit more. He's so oppo until he gets that one pitch to pull.

Oakland will have a sneaky good rotation next year
Eno Sarris
12:25
I love Cotton. I like Manaea. Sonny could get it back. And they have like eight guys for the back two.

how much more angry would you be if the dickhead fan threw a pliny the elder on the field?
Eno Sarris
12:25
well it would be glass and I was pretty mad

Now that the Braves manager job is basically down to Snitker and Bud Black, do you have any opinion on who they should hire?
Eno Sarris
12:26
I like Black. I think he's very good at people managing. I don't know about the rest. Managers are impossible. Did I mention I have an ALMoY vote?
Kenny
12:27
Which one do I keep in a 20-team dynasty- Greg Bird, Ender Inciarte or Yuli Gurriel?
Eno Sarris
12:27
One of the first two and I like Bird.

What's the secret to getting rid of your B.O.?
Eno Sarris
12:28
Work out more, shower more, deodorize more?

I felt that was the best playoff pitching duel since Gm 7 1991. It lived up to the hype.
Eno Sarris
12:28
It really was beautiful.

How do you like the Giants chances vs. the Cubs?
Eno Sarris
12:29
Cubs are one of the best teams I've ever seen. Giants have more flaws. Who knows.
Guest

can we stop calling the wild card game a "round" and start thinking of it as a glorified tiebreaker?
Eno Sarris
12:29
It's a play-in game! I really like cutting a week or two from Spring and making it at least a three-game series.
The Kid

No question here. I just want to point something out. I believe it was his second to last start, Kershaw was mowing (per usual) but he walked a guy, his tenth BB of the season. Dude was INCENSED. I know sometimes that we got lost in the beauty of Kershaw's numbers, and rightfully so, but how great is it that we get to watch him pitch?
