If you had kids, you'd want more than 30 seconds to yourself.

Porcello, Verlander, and Kluber all had solid seasons, but only Britton had a historically great season. He shouldn't be punished for not pitching low leverage innings in addition to the 67 high leverage innings he pitched, right?
Eno Sarris
1:16
If you chain and replacement level WPA, Britton ends up fourth in the AL. I still don't see him as the Cy.

Jorge Soler was my totally scientific #1 ranked Most Beautiful Chicago Cub as seen here http://www.bleedcubbieblue.com/2014/12/11/7378123/most-beautiful-chicago-cubs

Statuesque but don't get me started, Russell is mine.

what are the odds of the Rockies get both Melancon and Neftali Feliz? would solve the 'pen woes?
Eno Sarris
1:17
That would be interesting! I think they have a closer in Ottavino, though, so I bet it's like Feliz and Hudson or something.

re: JD Martinez to the Giants- as a Giants fan I really hate the idea of trading Arroyo or Beede for a power hitter to come and hit 15 HR/year in ATT. The foundation for the run of championships came on a steady stream of excellent homegrown talent and surplus value from veteran role players- I'd much rather see them skip the win now trades and develop their farm system.
Eno Sarris
1:18
The farm is pretty bad. I'm not a Beede fan, though, so if they can trade Beede and not Arroyo for Martinez, I might be into it. But yeah, the farm is bad.

Are any Fangraphs guys going to the Winter Meetings? If you'll be there I'll buy you a beer
Eno Sarris
1:18
We'll be there! En masse.

Do you think Soler's nagging injuries also suppress his trade value? The guy can't play 6 weeks straight without a leg injury. I don't see that magically going away as he gets older.
Eno Sarris
1:18
yes, and his defense.

Some insight into what makes them unique rather than just, here's our bright tank, here's where we boil here's where

Over/under on Yasiel Puig getting 12 war in the rest of his career
Eno Sarris
1:19
I'm a believer. He's 25. I'll take the over.

Cubs lineup is going to lose a bunch of OBP by losing Fowler. And will have a whole lot of Boom and Bust. But re-signing Fowler probably requires trading both Soler AND Baez (or Schwarber). Do you think the Cubs could be motivated to eat a lot of Heyward's deal and send him off in order to re-sign Fowler and still have playing time for both Schwarber and Baez? (Soler prob traded regardless)
Eno Sarris
1:20
I think you could sign Fowler and just trade Soler. Schwarbs and Almora in LF, Fowler, Heyward, Baez as utility, Contreras at C.

I don't know much about Lourdes Gurriel but doesn't it seem like a strange time for the Blue Jays to sign him? He might be a great value that they couldn't pass up but in a win now mode summer where they have several free agents to keep/replace without the cash to do it, it seems a bit strange to put that much money into a prospect.
Eno Sarris
1:21
He's 22. I bet they think they'll move him fast if he does well in Double-A.

Are closers (especially this year's class) being overvalued/priced salary wise?
Eno Sarris
1:22
If you look at today's dollars, in net present value, we've already seen five years and $65 million contracts twice. Those deals are usually bad deals but there's precedent.

Does the Phillies trade for Kendrick mean that Hernandez moves to 3rd and Franco to 1st?
Eno Sarris
1:23
Phillies phollowers seem to think that Cesar is going to get traded. He's got some tools, but relies on balls in play and isn't very heady.
CamdenWarehouse
1:23
What do you expect from Rodon next year?
Eno Sarris
1:23
Another step forward. Saw some command improvements and then also started believing in his change late in the season.

Hey first chat here, I would like to know if you think Heyward is a good fit in centerfield? They could slide zobrist to right and schwarbs in left. Or do the Cubs stay safe and keep Heyward in right?
Eno Sarris
1:24
If they don't sign Fowler, Hey in center with Almora pushing Heyward off center when Schwarber comes out of the game seems fine to me.

Pollock has two seasons left
Eno Sarris
1:24
Probably still available, given what Arizona needs to do.

1:25
Do you think there are any trade options at 3B if the Dodgers don't sign Turner? Could they kick the tires on guys like Wright or Sandoval?
Eno Sarris
1:25
Yeah they'll need to trade unless they use Kiké as a platoon partner with Valbuena at third. Which means they need to do something about second.

Are there any rules that prevent teams from altering their field dimensions to gain a competitive advantage? How fun would it be if a lefty heavy lineup moved their right field fence in to 230 feet? We can get Billy Hamilton up to 500 homers!
