Who do you think has the best chance of being a Star/Super Star. Gary Sanchez, Clint Frazier, Gleyber Torres, or Jorge Mateo?
Eno Sarris
12:28
Sanchez.

Does Sean Manaea have a straight fastball?
Eno Sarris
12:28
Not at all. It's super low spin, has a ton of sink, and a ton of fade.

Will David Dahl get regular playing time with Desmond acquisition and do you like him as a keeper this year?
Eno Sarris
12:29
I might actually wait on that Dahl deal from earlier until we hear what happens with Desmond and trades, but I think this shakes down with Dahl playing.

What is your take on Kopech? Saw him in AFL and the strikes were vicious, but the balls were many.
Eno Sarris
12:29
But the delivery wasn't terrible and every third changeup was good, and the breaking ball was good. I'm in.

Do you expect Panda to be the Red Sox's everyday option at 3B? Or is there another shoe about to drop? Turner maybe? Hanley back across the diamond and some three way flexibility with those two and Moreland at DH/1B?
Eno Sarris
12:31
They have Holt there too, I suspect he'll be playing there more often than in the outfield.
Ryno

And now for something completely different, what can we expect from Cesar Hernandez next year? Does trading him to a specific team increase his value?
Eno Sarris
12:32
He actually hits the ball fairly hard and in the line drive angles, but I bet the defensive numbers have him overvalued. He's more of a major league regular.
Mets
12:32
Who are the Mets going to sign / trade for ... Give me some hope
Eno Sarris
12:33
I'm hoping they can get a reliever for Bruce, not even a great one, but maybe just relief that helps them sign Ziegler. Lagares and then a signing in CF. Fowler would make too much sense.

Let's play TMZ, what do you think Bryce Harper's "Wow..." tweet was about?
Eno Sarris
12:33
I think if you don't face your own guys like Gio and Lopez, it's easy to overvalue a guy with good velocity.

The Mets farm system seems pretty "meh" now. How much is that due to successful graduation to MLB v. disappointing drafting/signing v. disappointing development?
Eno Sarris
12:34
Rosario is super legit to me, and they've done a good job graduating useful pitchers.
They haven't been as active in some markets as they should have been.

is statcast data about routes and route efficiency publicly available?
Eno Sarris
12:34
I haven't seen it.

Who the next one gone from the White Sox?
Eno Sarris
12:35
If me, Nate Jones in a package with someone.

What osrt of return does Quintana get for the CWS?
Eno Sarris
12:35
A great one, but there's still the issue of not really knowing how to age command because we can't even really put a number on command.
William
12:36
Does Eric Hosmer have another level or he just kinda meh at 1B?
Eno Sarris
12:36
Kinda at the mercy of his BABIP. Good, and maybe better than his WAR, but not great.

As a Nats fan I was very excited for Giolito, but after seeing him this year... man, that fastball. Doesn't move, and can't place it. If you have a pitcher with a different name who you said, "great curve, struggles with location sometimes; fastball plus velo but no movement, struggles with command"... this is not a guy you lose sleep about moving. Maybe he'll figure it out and be great! That's also true of dozens and dozens of other young pitchers.

Matt Holiday has the right idea and I've started slipping a "Retains the right to refuse to a trade to the Oakland Athletics" clause in every contract I've signed recently. No I don't play baseball but why take the risk?

I won a bet with a leaguemate about Sale/Arrieta's FG Pts total this season. He owes me a bomber of something from the Denver area. What should I ask for?
Eno Sarris
12:38
Ask for two small Crooked Staves, or a bomber of Funkwerks Tropic King Saison.

Does Yasiel Puig have anything left in the tank?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Yeah I don't think last year will be his epitaph. He's made adjustments before and still has the tools and isn't too old.

Have we reached the point where trading for talent is more expensive than signing FA's? Or an equilibrium point at least?
