I wondered inside my head if it had something to do with dropping down the arm angle at all. Seems a little risky.

I want to learn more about Asian baseball (specifically NPB/KBO). what do I do and who do I follow?

As much as I beef with the one-game setup, I watched both of these wild card games. I'll probably only otherwise watch playoff baseball until my team wins or is eliminated.
Eno Sarris

I guess the win or die thing is compelling, but it just really ups the luck factor to an absurd level.

Best hurricane warning? Perhaps... "Remember folks, coconuts become flying cannonballs"

Gotta love the people drinking on the beach right now.

Jeff predicted last night that BumBum will go in Game 2 on short rest and again on Game 5. As a Cubs fan, should I be pleased or terrified?
Erik
12:32
How much will Bumgarner be itching to go out on two days rest in game 2? If anyone can handle being abused like an early 1900s pitcher it's him, right?
Eno Sarris
12:32
I think it's a bit much.
Sammy

What's your favorite Sammy Sosa moment? Gotta be pulling out the flag after the homer post 9/11. Sammy the goat
Eno Sarris

Every. Goddamn. Hop.

I feel like the Mets and Cubs have taught us something something about developing teams.
Eno Sarris
12:33
Maybe, but it's certainly not the same thing.

Is it too soon to ask what should the Marlins plans be now?
Eno Sarris
12:35
It's sad, but true that their team took a solid hit in terms of competitive window. Looking at their depth chart... dammit. It's too soon.

I remember removing bone spurs could lead to TJ. Should we be worried about Matz since he is getting his gone?
Eno Sarris
12:35
What people don't remember about Matz is that we've always been worried about Matz. He's been injured early and often.

you Japandroids guy?

You go see them last night? I know they're on the east coast playing right now. I do like them

Actually just remembered! Have you ever researched what causes certain batters to have larger platoon splits than others? Do stance and location in the box affect it? Swing plane? Or is it just a natural sort of thing?
Eno Sarris
12:39
I think it has to do with eyes, but that sounds like a fun 'big piece' to do.

Is playing daily fantasy during the playoffs a fool's errand?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Not enough selection to separate yourself from the pack, I'd say.

I've had Jason Heyward on my bench for the best part of 5 years now in a dynasty.

Will he ever figure it out, or do I own Aaron Hicks or Lastings Milledge, and I'm just being stubborn about it?
Eno Sarris
12:41
In fantasy terms maybe, but in real life he's better than those guys. Which makes it harder to make a decision. I don't think he was particularly unlucky and he's hitting too many ground balls for my taste. I doubt there's much more than .275/.350/.420 in there any more, or 15/10 type fantasy numbers.

The sessions don't kick in the first 72 minutes; the heavy hitters do. Beer festivals are a nightmare (on the liver).
Eno Sarris
12:42
So backwards. I covered a beer week in San Francisco and of course Pliny the Younger opened up the fest, a frigging triple IPA.
Miketron

Do you think Edwin Diaz is more likely to be a lights-out closer or transition back to starting?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Either way, he's worth owning, like an Iglesias. H was so good as a closer... I think they keep him there.

Scherzer v. Kershaw WHO YA GOT?
Eno Sarris
12:44
Man I wish I knew what was going on in Harper's shoulder/neck and Murphy's butt. Because if those things were in good shape, I'd take the Nationals lineup... then again both of those guys are lefties so... Kershaw.

Can a team pay a player to exercise his opt-out clause? For example, could the Dodgers pay Kasmir $8M to exercise his clause and go away?
Eno Sarris
12:46
If he's into it, you can do anything. There aren't explicit trade kickers in all contracts but if there are ways for players to profit off of trades. Remember that we don't even know the whole story about Lucroy and the Indians, I'd guess.

Joe Panik had a really up and down (mostly down) year, but it seemed like his line drive rate and exit velo were the same as always, at least when it comes to the eyeball test. Does he rebound next year?
Eno Sarris
12:47
If you look at his career numbers, with a normal BABIP, he's a .280/.340/.400 guy. I think that's about right, and useful while young and playing good defense cheaply.

To add to that question: what are the Astros gonna do with Bregman and Gurriel?
