Uh well the power will calm down a bit, and with that K rate he might hit .250, but he should still hit 25 homers and have a decent OBP, and there's no way that's a bust even if it's regression.

Does Stanton get traded this winter? There has to be serious rebuilding consideration going on in Miami, right?
Eno Sarris
12:40
There's that contract, though, which with his injuries seems like a hindrance to his relocation process...

Is there anything tangible that Bauer was doing in his lights out June (among the league leaders in pitcher WAR for the month) that he isn't doing now? Different pitch mix or speeds, maybe different spin rates? Was it just luck that he was so effective then compared to much of the rest of this season?
Eno Sarris
12:41
His command waxes and wanes, especially on that two-seam, which he's learning. It's because he's revamped his delivery and also because it's difficult to keep the same level of command all season.

Is CJ Cron worth keeping for 2$? Can he .280 25/80/80?
Eno Sarris
12:41
Yeah I'd hold, even without the OBP, he's got some pop.

As a Braves fan, how concerned should I be that the Braves might actually give up something of value to trade for a 32-year-old Brian McCann?
YankeeFan1
12:42
Would the Braves give us Folty for McCann + 10 mil and Clint Frazier?
Eno Sarris
12:42
Well, see, if it's that second deal, I think the Braves would do it.

What, if anything, do we know about Corey Kluber on short rest? Just the same stuff we know about every pitcher on short rest?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Yeah I wouldn't read too much into his own history on short rest because you're probably talking about a couple starts. Eye test says he loses a bit of sharpness and command.

How much is too much to pay for Cubs WS tickets? Would you spend 5% of your after-tax yearly take home pay?
Eno Sarris
12:44
I paid nearly $200 for a concert one time, and I didn't pay, but my bro in law paid $500 for end zone seats for the 49ers against the Giants that year they muffed it in overtime. I'd probably find a bar if it was more than that.

My favorite baseball memory from 2016 is when Brendan and I went to an A's game, and between innings they had a fan guess if Danny Valencia could name more than ten colors in a minute. The fan guessed no, and then they cut to a video of Valencia rattling off about 14 before running out of steam. Then back to the fan, where the A's girl who does all the in-game stuff with fans cheerily announced "you underestimated Danny Valencia."
Eno Sarris
12:44
That fan = all of baseball.

Can and will the Bereaves sign two front line starters for 2017?
Eno Sarris
12:45
There are only like two front line starters on the market this year, and only if you count Jaime Garcia as the second (Rich Hill is the first). So, no!
12:46
Seriously. Here are the other best options: Andrew Cashner, Brett Anderson, Ivan Nova, and Cliff Lee.

I like how Kluber ate up Rizzo with sinkers on the hands on Tuesday, then last night Bauer tried the same strategy in Rizzo's first at bat and he smoked it into the corner. Great hitters adjust. Also I guess Bauer doesn't have Kluber's stuff.
Eno Sarris
12:48
It's weird because Bauer has a tick more velocity, and Kluber really only has about one inch more drop on his sinker than Bauer. And that pitch was well placed. I think the front door sinker (piece coming today) is weird because you want them not to swing, and if they do swing, they can do damage with it. So, yeah, if someone else has been doing it, you better watch out if you're pitching after them.

Is that beer break schedule a reference to something I'm not following because that sounds ridiculous
Eno Sarris
12:49
Oh, only Mondays and Wednesdays are set in stone. Then I try to take other days off, and Tuesday nights are the easiest.

Touki Toussaint's spin rate on his curve has gotten a lot of love. Dan Farnsworth wrote, "On pure stuff, Toussaint has possibly the best one-two punch in the minors with his fastball and curveball." What's your take on him? Future star? Is it wrong of a layman to correlate organizational failure in cultivating other young starters (Foltynewicz, Wilser, Blair) and fear he'll be yet another bust?
Eno Sarris
12:50
Dunno if future start because I don't know if he's got a third pitch and what's going on with the velocity. But I think he'll pitch in the big leagues, and all they did was pay for him.

Re: Arrieta at $18 for Kershaw at $35, or Urias $1 and Buxton $2, which side would you go for?
Eno Sarris
12:50
Might as well go super cheap. Love Urias, and what if Buxton works out.

So the wind will be reaching 40mph and blowing straight out tomorrow night while epic dong allower Josh Tomlin is on the mound. O/U of Cub dongs 4.5.
Eno Sarris
12:51
Well there should be at least 10 or 11 out there if we're going to be literal.

Tomlin over his career has a fairly large reverse platoon split 0.311 wOBA vs lefties and 0.341 wOBA vs righties (and he's not a lefty Eno, no matter what you think). think Maddon runs Soler out in right again Friday? Would zobrist and dex consider hitting righty? We saw maddon do that with rays against knuckleballers
Eno Sarris
12:52
Did you know that platoon splits for pitchers become stable quicker than for hitters? I saw that recently. I think we're seeing Schwarber out there, is the feeling I get from the air.

What's an ideal offseason look like for Mets? Apparently have some money to spend finally. Could you see them going 3/70 with Joey bags?
Eno Sarris
12:53
They still have this center field problem. Maybe Fowler? Desmond?

When I realized that I could print stuff to the principal's printer in high school, I printed him a page that read "Does Superman wear a cape to hide the fact that he's an ape?"

They tried Baez in the OF before the season and the results were less than stellar.

Sorry I won't be able to make Friday's chat. Because I have tickets to the game!

started funny, got serious, and then just pfffffft.

Pirates fan here. Does Familia and Gsellman for Mccutchen make sense? Opens up spot for meadows and helps us pitching wise

Not enough for Cutch.
