Your full take on RA Dickey to the Braves?
Eno Sarris
12:01
He's not what he used to be! He can't get the hard 80 mph knuckler over the plate like he used to. He's also likely to be league average and an asset either to the Braves or to another team late-season.

Could the A's try for Verlander? I see them as taking on an unexpected big contract this season (they do have lots of money to spare and just got yelled at for not spending)
Eno Sarris
12:02
Huh. If it costs less in prospects and they have some budget... on the other hand, they've been at 87 million forever. Which kinda makes me mad. Rev sharing plus tv contract = 85 mill. Team's paid for before a single fan walks through the door.

What type of season does Upton need next year to make the opt out a no-brainer
Eno Sarris
12:04
I don't think he will! If he turned it back to 2014, when he was a four-win player at 26, maybe, but he's not 26 any more and the numbers have never liked his defense and the sample is getting big enough. Plus, if you watch him... he's not good at D.

OBP league Springer or Dahl the next 3 years?
Eno Sarris
12:05
Dahl going to steal some bases, but I like the bird in hand. Springer in his peak.

How long before Eric Thames signs with the A's, for like 4/16 or something?
Eno Sarris
12:06
totally their type of deal.
Thomas

Remind me rookie pitchers who you're excited about for next year? Cotton on the As, any others?
Eno Sarris
12:07
Cotton, Stewart, Adalberto Mejia, Seth Lugo, DAvid Paulino, Robert Gsellman
Drew

Tried to talk about first $100M reliever through lens of $ value of prospects and none of you dudes took me up on it. How much was Gleyber worth in cash vs how much was half year of Chapman worth? Would that line of reasoning not inform potential $ spent on closer this winter?
Eno Sarris
12:08
The problem is that Chapman was worth more to the Cubs than he would be worth at the beginning of the season because the Cubs knew they were going to the postseason. So they get that added value in the postseason which you can't really figure in to Chapman's regular season / contract value.

Seems like this would be a great time for Cubs to try and lock up some of their young guys to long term deals. This is obviously complicated by the fact that Boras is agent to Bryant and Russell. Which of the young guys are likely to take a long term deal? Does is make sense for Cubs to try and do this instead of spending their World Series money on average FA or overspending on the big relievers?
Eno Sarris
12:08
I'm sure they've been trying for a long time and they won't be able to. Rizzo probably telling them not to.

Eno! Tell us all about Brent Honeywell!
Eno Sarris
12:09
If command is confidence and athleticism and repeatability -- and I think it might be -- then he's got all of those in spades despite the weird delivery. Plus SCROOOOOOGIEEEEEEE

What type of return could the White Sox possibly get in a Nate Jones trade?
Eno Sarris
12:10
With that contract... not a Giles return, but a good one.

Eno, can we get an analysis on when it becomes inappropriate to still be drinking champagne in celebration of the Cubs world championship? please tell me it is still okay.
Eno Sarris
12:10
Drinking I can get behind. Champagne is just liquid headache to me.

What are your thoughts on Wily Peralta? He had a pretty solid finish to the year.
Eno Sarris
12:11
Velocity bump did him well but he still doesn't have a third pitch or the command to make two pitches work.
Josh
12:12
Pirates best outfield alignment is? And is it worth it to have a home/road alignment given the complexity of PNC Park?
Eno Sarris
12:13
I'm thinking last year's defensive numbers for McCutchen (bad) were a bit of an anomaly related to the Pirates' new attitude about outfield positioning. I think he's a true talent -5 CF. As good as Polanco looks with the eye test, his number suggest he's a scratch corner outfielder, so he would probably not be an improvement in center. Starling Marte may be about the same as Cutch, maybe.
Guest
12:14
Is there a FA outfielder that you think makes sense for SF? Do you think they have any interest in playing at the top of the market in both the OF and the pen or, if one, which?
Eno Sarris
12:16
I think they'll let Williamson and Parker handle left field and buy depth and spend in the bullpen. So maybe Peter Bourjos or take a shot on a reclamation project.

A's 2017 infield: Chapman, Semien, Baretto, Healy?
Eno Sarris
12:17
Barreto not there yet. Healy and Semien, yes. Wendle and Lowrie at second. Alonso and something at first, dunno if it'll be a rookie.
DannyP
12:17
What kind of return does Jorge Soler get you if you're the Cubs? What level of major leaguer/prospects can be had?
Eno Sarris
12:17
Might be the guy they trade for a reliever. A stud reliever. On a good contract.

Thoughts on the Robles-Cutch rumor? As a Buck fan I'd want a bit more but I'd love to have Robles sitting in the wings.
Eno Sarris
12:18
Cutch going to be super rumor guy for sure. Meadows is ready.
Bruce
12:18
Glasnows been a 5bb/9 guy his entire career. Can he succeed at 10K/9 5BB/9?
Eno Sarris
12:19
In the national league. For a while.
