What is ur ideal cubs lineup for game 3?
Eno Sarris
12:04
I'm putting Heyward out there. Hendricks Ks guys but not at the same level as his bullpen, so there will be balls in play. Bat Russell eighth, Heyward seventh, Contreras sixth, mixes up the lefty/righty at the bottom. Then the rest is the same; Fowler/Bryant/Rizzo/Zobrist/Baez

Can Pujols be a starting 1B next year in a 12-team league?
Eno Sarris
12:06
He's not in the top 11, I agree with Brad there. Hanley, Myers, Santana, I'd rather have any of those guys. So can Pujols beat out Gonzo, VMart, Belt? Maybe. But if Brad Miller repats, or Tommy Joseph catches fire, or Lucas Duda returns to form, or Eric Hosmer has a Good Batting Average Season... I'd say most likely not.

Cubs starting position players opening day 2017?
Eno Sarris

There's so much love for Schwarber, I feel like he's the starter in LF. With a full spring and healthier wheels, I think he can at least Kemp or Bruce, don't you? That means Soler becomes a little expendable unless he's the fifth OF behind an Almora/Heyward CF solution. Looks like Zobrist is an outfielder and Baez is the everyday second baseman, the only wrinkle could be Bryant in center, but dude is so tall... You know, the back end of this Cubs dynasty will have some bad defense unless they trade away studs to retool as they go along.

O/U 6.5 IPs for Hendricks on Friday. O/U 4.5 for Tomlin. What you got?

Will Eric Longenhagen be posting just one of the prospect lists per day or will they be posted more frequently?
Eno Sarris
12:10
They've been much more infrequent than that in the past, and they require an ungodly amount of work. I'd bet on two to three a week.

The Cubs team doctor will likely review Schwarber's medical records* from the last two games, and clears him for LF. The DH story is great, but are the Cubs actually hurting their chances to win with him in left?
Eno Sarris
12:11
I'm not sure I'd have him out there now. Next year, maybe, but dunno about now. It's not like he's even been 100% of himself if you ask me, but that's just my eye test.
You could play him for two ABs I guess.

As of today, is Syndergaard a 2nd round keeper, or do his potential injury concerns scare you off of that?
Eno Sarris
12:12
If you're in a league where people keep pitchers in the second round, he's absolutely a second round keeper.

Can you put a word in to Manfred to move the starting times of games to earlier then 8 PM EST? Thanks much appreciated xoxo

No baseball today is a bleak look into our rapidly approaching dark future where there is no baseball for several months where we're left to ponder our own futility, with nothing but cold and less than 8 hours of daylight to keep us company.

I will warm myself by the light of planning a trip to the Arizona Fall League, and you may do the same by the hot stove with a bit of rosterbation to keep the stamina up.

Really enjoyed your Addison Russell analysis. What (if anything - it's just 2 games) has he shown you in the World Series? Do you think that he can pull off a Joey Votto and simply "beat them" in the future?
Eno Sarris
12:15
You can pitch to Russell. It's not just low and away, he's a little excited about in off the plate and swings a lot there. He has two things to do, and that's tough. The nice thing is that there's a walk rate there, a natural patience, that could serve him well as he sees better pitchers try to pick him apart. I think this postseason -- with lots of success and failure -- could go a long way to helping him next year. If he doesn't improve a lot more next year, I'll revise my feeling about his ceiling downward.

Watching Cujo and I feel bad for the dog :(
I mean, I feel bad for the people, too but poor poor Cujo.

So my son will now say "Go Cubbies!", but its usually followed by "Touchdown!". I still have some work to do...

Schwarber facing Miller in the World Series after Theo wouldn't one for the other is like bending time space.
Eno Sarris
12:16
How about the two teams that traded for Yankees relievers making the world series?
Dingerville

How would you approach the Blue Jays short and longterm future?
Eno Sarris
12:19
If there's a window going forward, it's Sanchez and Stroman being cheap. Maybe you can add in Travis, Osuna, and Donaldson for two more years. That seems like a good core, and you can do all sorts of things with it. Here's the nice thing: the team is losing two positionless bats, kinda, and that is the easiest thing to buy. Look at the Orioles, they find those guys every year. I'd treat this as a win-now team, at least in terms of signing players and worrying about losing picks to QO players.

How good do you think a reliever has to be to make the Hall of Fame? Francisco Rodriguez, for example, is fourth all-time in saves, but has only 17.2 career WAR. Does that make him close to a shoo-in, or a one-and-done guy? And do you expect reliever valuation by Hall voters to change significantly as bullpen usage changes?
Eno Sarris
12:20
He'll be interesting because so far the relievers that have made it in have been clearly the best of their times, and mostly innovative, too. K-Rod seems more conventional, and was never really the best in the league at any one time, despite having that one great season by saves.

Is there a precedent for how to value players like Miller who are great during the regular season but that you really want for their playoff contributions? Maybe ace starters on teams that already know they're making the playoffs?
Eno Sarris
12:21
I think he's the kind of guy that really puts in focus how players traded at the deadline bring more back than during the offseason. You want Miller when you KNOW you're going to the postseason, not when you think you will be going.
Erik

Who will miss the DH more in Chicago, the Indians or the Cubs?
Eno Sarris
12:22
Santana in left will also be interesting if it happens. The Cubs are like the only NL team that would rather have the DH right now.
