I live in Toledo Ohio. I'm starting to think this has to be one of the best places to buy beer in the country. Ohio beers are pretty good, but then when you include the readily available Michigan beers and now Three Floyd's being available at my market regularly, Im in heaven. Do you agree and what are some other awesome areas to buy beer?
Eno Sarris

It's not bad, but Chicago has slightly better home beer and the same access to across the country beers!

Eno do I want tea? Caveat: I would have to stand up and walk 15 steps to the kitchen.
Eno Sarris
1:34
Eh.

Has the ship sailed on Devin Mesoraco?
Eno Sarris
1:35
No, I'll give him another chance. I wonder if it's sailed on him being a catcher, especially since tucker is decent.

What's Jorge Soler's triple slash line ceiling?
Eno Sarris
1:35
realistic ceiling Im giving him .260/.340/.480 with poor D.

So Leyland still has to come and drink his double scotch and double vodkas despite no longer managing?
Eno Sarris
1:36
Yup!

Whhhaaaaaaaaaaaat. Mounds and Almond Joy are my jam!

If you like mounds, I don't know that we can be friends unless you equally like twizzlers
Eno Sarris
1:36
yah
I wonder

Are you a believer in James Paxton for 2017? Going forward?
Eno Sarris
1:36
Yes.

Could you see Mallex Smith ending up like any of Ben Revere, Juan Pierre, Billy Hamilton, or Michael Bourn?
Eno Sarris
1:37
I think a little better than Revere because he can really play center.

How much work are MLB teams doing with bio mechanical studies with respect to injury, power transfer, etc.
Eno Sarris
1:37
Most teams I talk to are doing that.
But then... they're talking to me so.

Is getting Eaton and giving up all those prospects really better than getting Fowler and giving up your late first rounder?
Eno Sarris
1:37
money question, too, though.

That was not a simple sandwich...

Hey Eno, how can I find things like Statcast xAvg, etc.?
Eno Sarris
1:38
xAvg is done by Andrew Perpetua on RotoGraphs, he has a whole x Suite. Statcast stuff is on baseballsavant.mlb.com, you have to poke around.

Gsellman is 23 and is showing up high on some prospect lists. He's got to be valuable right? Sure he doesn't have the high ceiling but he has an incredibly high floor. GMs are smart enough nowadays right?
Eno Sarris
1:39
He's the thought I had for a Blackmon trade. No idea how much you'd have to add though.
Travis

What do you think of Mauricio Cabrera?
Eno Sarris
1:39
Low spin for his velocity, will always be a little bit less than his radar gun numbers.
Dominik

I think reducing moncada on his tools is a little overblown. Ks are a risk but still he had a 900 OPS in AACHEN
Eno Sarris
1:40
Whoa they have a team in Aachen? I mean Maastricht, sure.

My local beer store changed distributors. I bought a case (24) of Spencer Trappist for $15 yesterday. $15!!!!
Eno Sarris

Underrated beer, great for price.

Hi Eno, do you think I could trouble you for some advice? I've been contacted by a guy who wants me to write for a website he's putting together hosted by Medium, because he's seen my work on FG community (batflip articles and some Paul goldschmidt stuff). I'm 31, I have a full time job, a 2 year old, and a new home. They need 2 articles per week and they want to roll out compensation for writers when they get 20,000 unique viewers per month. I would love to write about baseball so I should probably do it, right? I'd be keeping my job and am just worried about letting someone down along the way...what do you think?
Eno Sarris
1:42
Oh do it. But 20K uniques is a ton. Just do it for exposure, even if people say not to do things free. But don't be beholden to that sort of promise. if someone wants to pay later, move on.

I'm going into next season with Healy, Sano & Franco. I have the chance to keep K Seagar but would have to bump Posey or Darvish. Would you bet on one of those 3 breaking out or pay steep for Seagar
Eno Sarris
1:42
Go with the three.
Hank

Gregory Polanco broke out last year, but I still think there is more there. I see a damn superstar, do you agree?
Eno Sarris
1:43
He's on the lower end, I wish he hit the ball harder, but he has the super star skillset.
