If Gallo doesn't put it together this year, are you out?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Been out for years.

Minty didn't even say thank you for helping him win. He just demands more from you.
Eno Sarris
12:41
That's the business, and not in the good way.

Odds Dozier to LA actually happens?
Eno Sarris
12:41
Minnesota could use some pitching, but a little afeared of who plays second after he leaves. Polanco pretty shaky.

What are you expecting from Conforto in 2017?
Eno Sarris
12:42
.275/.350/.475 in 500 PA? I like him. Might be high man.

Do you think Domingo Santana puts it together this year?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Statcast loves him, and health could really do it. A little worried that the outfield is getting crowded there, and don't know how many chances he'll have going forward, but I'm in for this year.

How should I feel about the Cubs jacking up ticket prices 19%? Should teams strive to make at least a portion of their tickets affordable to the average fan? Or is it a rich fan's sport for the in-person experience?
Eno Sarris
12:44
It sucks but it's still cheaper than the other two big three sports. At least the TV experience is improving.

We're glad you're so honest on Sleeper and the bust

Well you saved *that* one.

In spite of being sick, what was your best/least favorite aspect of the Winter Meetings being in the DC area?
Eno Sarris
12:47
Hmm.. Best: Rose's Luxury was amazing. I want a Cinnamon Toast Crunch shaker for my house or I don't because I'd just get fat. Second-best: National Harbor wasn't as cheesy as many of the 'convention' areas like the one in Orlando or Dallas. Least: Not warm, not San Diego.

When drinking a beer, how much do you care about specific style traits like ABV? I brewed a Berliner that will probably be 6.5%, if it's still tart and dry and effervescent, does the gravity matter to you? I'm think Yuzu from New Belgium as an example of someone completely ignoring gravity.
Eno Sarris
12:48
There's ABV on the bottle and then there's how it reads. Plenty of double-digit stouts aren't that hot because they are complex and have a lot going on. If I taste a beer as hot -- too much alcohol -- I generally don't like it, and I will order my beers from least to most ABV generally, but I won't buy a beer based on ABV by itself.

Kendall Graveman + Ryan Dull for David Dahl makes a lot of sense to me. A #2 starter and a closer with a ton of service time, with profiles perfectly fit for Coors for an impact CF.
Eno Sarris
12:48
Not enough.

Liked the Ramos article. Are you a believer in the story that LASIK really did turn Ramos into a better hitter? Do you see his offensive projection going forward as better, worse, or the same as the roughly league-average bat predicted by Steamer?
Eno Sarris
12:50
I think it can really help. I mean, in conjunction with his zone discernment changes, that's really impressive. I'm going with the over on a 100 wrC+.

Which trade for an MLB player has the most chance to backfire?
Eno Sarris
12:51
Okay, I'll admit this as much as I like the Eaton deal: if Gio turns back into an ace, then the deal isn't great. I'd just put the chance that one of Reynaldo or Gio is even a 1/2/3 at something like 20%.
Bob
12:51
Does Billy Hamilton plus reliever trade for Conforto make any sense ? I like it as Reds fan but not sure from Mets point of view
Eno Sarris
12:51
I like Lagares and Conforto too much to do this.
Lightning Round!
12:52
Braves sign Turner, sign Weiters, start Albines at 2b... wildcard team?
Eno Sarris
12:52
They at around 77 now I think. That would make them 83+. Would take luck to get to wild card.

Is Derek Holland worth a flyer for the Cubs?
Eno Sarris
12:52
I'm not a fan. Maybe in the pen.

Washington DC is the only place in this beautiful country where we name a strain of cannabis for the deceased former mayor and his surviving family is like "This is a very fitting tribute thank you."

Hi Eno, do you think Clint Frazier gets his chance in NYY this year? What do you think his ceiling /floor is. Also, what do you think about Justin upton going into '17.
Eno Sarris
12:54
Upton can be a bit better than last year. Frazier has so much swing and miss, I've seen him swing through three straight sliders. I'm not sure he makes it, but he should get a chance this year.

Brandon Webb succeeded averaging 88 on his fastball?
Eno Sarris
12:54
That was better relative to the league average back then, so it's like a guy being 89 today, at least, and also he had the wickedest sink on that pitch.
