Many articles/respected opinions equate forearm strains in pitchers often leading to TJ surgery. With Wade Davis having issues twice last season does the Royals willingness to trade him even though they are supposedly going all in in 2017 suggest they know more than what the Cubs to decipher from the medicals? Are the Cubs rolling the dice with this trade?
Eno Sarris
12:29
I think one of the few things that you can say with certainty is that past elbow injury predicts future elbow injury. Perhaps the Cubs don't consider the forearm predictive in that way.

Dave mentioned yesterday that "high leverage innings" are factored into WAR for a relief pitcher. If "clutch" is not a thing, how can "high leverage innings" be a thing?
Eno Sarris
12:30
Because clutch is a measure of how good the player does in those high leverage situations. Giving a reliever credit for *being* in high leverage situations, regardless of what he does, is different. He can suck in those high leverage innings and cost his WAR/value.

Given the rise in popularity of young cost controlled players over more expensive veterans (sort of), could we see a team roll all 25 players over in consecutive years? Say the Cubs or Astros...
Eno Sarris
12:32
One problem, a problem Billy Beane pointed out, is that arbitration still gets pretty expensive. Look at how the Astros payroll just skyrocketed.

14 team roto obp, healy or josh bell this year? Thanks.
Eno Sarris
12:33
Damn. .350 OBP, .140 ISO vs what I'd call .320 OBP, .175+ ISO, but at third base. I might take Healy here.

Do you think Dallas Keuchel will have another Cy Young type season in his career or is he an average starter from here on out?
Eno Sarris
12:33
I'll take average.
Nelson
12:33
All this time I thought Kenny Loggins and Kenny Rogers were the same person. I am so embarrassed!

charles grodin was sneaky average in beethoven..."BAAAYYYYY-TOOOOOOOOVEEENNNNN!"

i absolutely agree with you, masha, silvestrov's concept of the postlude, of a nostalgia for tonality expressed as a dissipation of tonality, sounds more interesting than his music
Eno Sarris
12:34
This may be one of the better interludes of all time, and it just came out of nowhere.

how much longer do I have to deal with a losing product considering the Preller dominican signings won't arrive for another 3 years?
Eno Sarris
12:34
four years?

Travis Jankowski a starter this season?
Eno Sarris
12:36
Yeah. Well. I think they'll find a way to get 550+ from four OF types, with Dickerson DHing and pinch hitting and all that.
Darth Pineda

Do you collect cards or memorabilia of any particular player(s)?
Eno Sarris
12:36
This all started with baseball card collecting, but it's on lock down until the kids are older.

Eno, any Canadian beer recommendations? We don't get much for craft beer from the US where I'm from.
Eno Sarris
12:37
All I got is everything Bellwoods and Ball's Falls (love Bench).
Biscuit
12:37
Imperial IPA is best. Why are we even having this debate anymore!?
Eno Sarris
12:37
They feel a little boozy for me these days.

Just won a championship and look pretty good this year (10 teams, Keep 10, players go up a Rd per year), so: Keep Blackmon (Rd 3) and Scherzer (Rd 4) or Gallo (Rd 25) and Bird (Rd 28).
Eno Sarris
12:38
Def not Gallo but I'm staring a hole into that Bird, especially if Blackmon gets traded.
Sirras

Suppose you have two players who hit for the same triple-slash. One hits for that line exactly all year. The other hits way above it for half the year and way below it for the other half. All else being equal and assuming you don't know when the volatile guy will be hot/cold, does one player provide his team with more value/opportunities to win?
Eno Sarris
12:38
Volatility can be useful. Think of the pitcher that gives up 4 runs *every* time versus the guy that alternates 6 and 2. You'd win most of those 2-run games, while you might just lose a ton of those 4-run games...
12:39
I think the real answer is diversity. Some Steady Eddies and some Girls with the Curl.

Best value of the hot stove league so far?
Eno Sarris

Justin Turner, Bartolo Colon?
Aaron

My local bar had a "Darkest Day, Darkest Beers" event last night. Had so, so many good stouts. BCBS, Evil Twin Aun Mas, local stuff. Will the Friday beerchats at Beergraphs still be a thing, or nah? If no, will there be something comparable at the new site?
Eno Sarris
12:42
A lot to figure out, but I always liked that one, so I'll see if we cant' have something similar at least.
