good morning (for me)
John

Jorge Soler for Wade Davis? Who says no first
Eno Sarris
12:02
In the past, I would have said the Cubs. But now? Seems like it could happen, particularly if the Royals add another arm, even if it's an arm that might relieve.
Jake

Thoughts on a Valbuena-Pearce platoon for the Jays?
Eno Sarris
12:03
At first-slash-right field with Smoak heading to the bench some? I dunno if Valbuena can play the outfield. I bet the other half of Pearce is an outfielder. Right now it's Pillar/Carrera/Pompey/Upton and that squad could use an upgrade.
Matt
12:04
Opinion on Matt Strahm?
Eno Sarris
12:05
I think he has the pieces to be a starter, but if he's down to below 92, and can't stay healthy, maybe you just stick him in the pen and he's the next lights out reliever. With that rotation, though, I'd try him one more time as a starter.

How do you feel about bourbon barrel aged stouts? I love me some intense beer but dang, they can be pretty harsh. Are there are out there that are a bit less "knock you on your assery?"
Eno Sarris
12:07
You're always going to get the Bourbon taste and probably always going to get 10%+ ABV... there are ones that I think are smoother, though, like The Abyss from Deschutes. And it usually comes in below 10% actually.
Vince Namoli
12:07
If you were the Rays, which SPs would you look to trade and what are you targeting in return?
Eno Sarris
12:07
DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?
12:08
Sorry, that was a Vince special when he got pulled over one time. Like, dude, very few people know what the owner looks like.
12:09
To answer your question, I'm guessing Smyly goes. Fewest years left on contract and enough strikeouts to keep most teams interested.
John
12:09
Dodgers top priority this offseason should probably be a Kershaw extension right?
Eno Sarris
12:10
He's signed through 2020 I think that's okay.

a major pharmaceutical company has just developed a free pill that you take one time and never get bodily gas again, and there are no side effects. do you take it?
Eno Sarris
12:11
(sometimes it feels great to fart)
Matthew

More and more I'm seeing the Braves connected to some of the top pitchers on the trade market. Why, after trading for and drafting so much pitching, would they give up prospects for one of these guys? Do you actually see it happening?
Eno Sarris
12:11
My personal opinion is that they've gathered a bunch of quantity arms but I'm not sure about quality. And none of them can pitch this year really, in a new park.
Roadhog
12:11
Gray + Vogt for Inciarte, Newcomb, and Wisler, who says no?
Eno Sarris
12:12
Braves. They'll put that whole package on the board for Sale and the top guys, but is Gray that guy? I say if they go with Gray it's because they get to give up less.
Bob
12:12
Hi Eno, thanks for doing these chats. Any chance the Braves move Inciarte for prospects this winter, or are they in full aim-to-contend mode?
Eno Sarris
12:12
If he goes it's for a pitcher.
Roadhog
12:12
Hahn for Jankowski, who says no?
Eno Sarris
12:13
Padres. They need the guy in the outfield and they've already made the Hahn decision.
DN
12:13
Carlos Gomez's OPS outside of Minutemaid park the last 2 years: .758. That is over 600+ ABs. Does that support the idea that he altered his approach because of Minutemaid (which is pretty unusually shaped) and is still an above average hitter?
Eno Sarris
12:13
I think his body is going. I'd sign him, but only for a couple years. Three would be max, and that would require a lower ave salary.
JKD
12:13
Given the Nats' substantial positional flexibility - Turner can play SS or CF; Rendon can play 3B or 2B; Murphy can play 2B or 1B; Harper can play RF or CF - does it make sense for them to simply get the best-available-bat-for-value? I was thinking about Justin Turner and the Cubs-like merry-go-round that could ensue with him, but really, they could probably find a place for any one of the (relatively few) bats on the market, no?
Eno Sarris
12:15
The Nats never wanted to play Turner at short so I don't think you can count him there. Maybe at second. I doubt you want to play Harper in center. But I think you're right that they don't need to be in a box. It's just that the free agent market on the infield is Justin Turner, their first baseman is already expensive... Maybe they can augment with a guy like Valbuena.

Hello, friend!

Hello!
Bork

Can you tell August we miss him :( :( :( :(
Eno Sarris
12:15
Yes.
Steve

Any thoughts on an international draft?
Eno Sarris
12:16
I don't like the current system. I don't like the international draft.
I wish I had a better idea.

Would one year of Seattle outfielder Seth Smith ($7 million) be enough to land from Toronto one year of shortstop Darwin Barney (projected $1.6 million) and one year of outfielder Melvin Upton (net $3.8 million) to improve the Mariner defense?
Eno Sarris
12:17
Yes. And given the fact that the Jays have Carrera and PIllar, I think they might like this trade. It's not a big one, but it might happen.
Love it when you get a realistic trade idea and it's Smith for Barney and BJ.
Bob
12:18
The Angels are abysmal with no hope for contending in the foreseeable future. Do they keep Trout through 2020, or is there any hope baseball fans will get to see prime-years Trout in October via trade before 2021?
