Hello Eno. Salazar, Naquin, Aiken, F.Mejia, B.Bradley, Chang for AJ Pollock and Goldschmidt. Yeah I know, crazy, but I think it would make sense for both, no?
Eno Sarris
12:35
Indians hold their youngsters though.
Kerry
12:35
Do the Indians make any moves in regard to starting pitching or stand pat with the guys they have and hope for health?
Eno Sarris
12:35
Maybe sign someone they like for whatever reason, like a Jhoulys Chacin, to be the five/security blanket, and hope that one of Anderson, Merrit, Clevinger figure something out.
Ryan

Does it make more sense for the Rockies to be buyers or sellers this offseason?
Eno Sarris
12:36
Modest buyers. They might actually have some arms. I'd look for a value 1B.
Hans
12:36
Does Wil Myers take another step forward in 2017?
Eno Sarris
12:36
I don't think there's a lot of upside left. Speed should take a step back IMO, and then all that's left is a bit more consistency maybe.
Dan

Trading for an ace doesn't seem like the Cubs MO, does it?
Eno Sarris
12:37
No! That's what money is for.
Logan

Does it make sense for Atlanta to cash in prospects for MLB help yet? They got pretty lucky that none of these arms fell apart with injuries yet, why risk waiting another year.
Eno Sarris
12:38
I think this is the reason for going after Sale, plus the fact that they don't probably have a Sale on the roster unless everything comes together for Newcomb, and I'm talking the 99th percentile outcome.
Harold

Looks like the Mets will look to move Jay Bruce this offseason. What can they expect to get back? A top 10-15 prospect in the org?
Eno Sarris
12:38
I think they only do that if they sign Yo and I'm not sure they sign Yo.
Nelson
12:40
Who do the Dodgers get to play 3rd if not Turner?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Luis Valbuena?
JKD
12:40
Wilson Ramos to the O's for something like 2/$20M? Stays in an area that loves him and where he's comfortable, gives them half a DH and some of a catcher this year, and maybe 2/3 of a catcher next year, but worst-case, a step up at DH. Plus his other-way power stroke will play very well at Camden Yards.
Eno Sarris
12:40
Yeah they'll do something like that to replace Trumbo. Everyone loves to hit in Camden.
Hank
12:41
If you had to pick one young SP that has a breakout season, who would it be? My pick is Marcus Stroman after what he did at the end of the season.
Eno Sarris
12:41
Jon Gray. Love his arsenal.
Tondo
12:42
With only one year left on his contract, do you think AJ Pollock is available?
Eno Sarris
12:42
Oh wow the time goes quickly. Yes, probably.
Bruce
12:42
BRB, running to walmart to buy some diapers. Carry on without me
Eno Sarris
12:42
We'll do our best!
Erik
12:42
Is the general lack of news about the CBA negotiations a good sign or a bad sign?
Eno Sarris
12:43
I'd go with good. I'm guessing we would have heard about bad blood by now.
Zac
12:43
Headed to the bay area this weekend. Any breweries I should check out? I went to Lagunitas last time out and loved it.
Eno Sarris
12:43
Fieldwork in Oakland, Rare Barrel for sours in Oalkand, and Cellarmaker (near City Beer Store) in SoMA in SF. Up north, Henhouse, Russian River of course.
EC
12:43
If you squint, can you see Scherzer in the HOF?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Health, all about health!
Zac
12:44
Would you predict a Blake Snell breakout next season?
Eno Sarris
12:44
yeah that slider was huge for him.
Dagoberto

Saw your article on "Using Spin to Identify Two Underrated Free Agents". Thoroughly enjoyed it. I know your focus was mainly on both Fien and Peavy, but it was interesting to see Neftali Feliz on there . Especially as a 28yo FA. Let's hypothetically pretend that you are his agent. What is your client's ideal scenario? He was decent in Pittsburgh? Another park which park's factors make it the perfect landing spot?
Eno Sarris
12:44
I think I'd like him to go somewhere with a bad closer or an unsettled closing situation. Gotta get those saves.

Luhnow says 5 year window to win is opening now. What do the Astros do in the offseason?
Eno Sarris
12:45
They need a front line starter.
Erik
12:45
How much of a factor does not wanting to piss off the fanbase play in teams' decision to rebuild? Are there teams out there for whom it would be logical to rebuild, but fan anger prevents them from making the logical move? Or are execs typically above such concerns and act like logical robots?
Eno Sarris
12:46
I think that's the excuse they use when they spend their whole budget but they really just want to spend their budget. We heard this with the Mets but then they did a rebuild and are better now... There's PR and there's creating a good sustainable team that will attract butts. All about attracting butts.
Jeb

What are the actual chances McCutchen gets traded this winter? I saw something yesterday that said 70%. What are your thoughts?
Eno Sarris
12:47
They need a starter, IMO, they scored runs last year but are projected to have a bottom half rotation. Meadows isn't learning anything more in the minors once June rolls around. I'd definitely go over 50%.
