I think I just did by posting this.

Any good baseball books you would recommend?
Eno Sarris
12:30
Baseball Hacks for people trying to get into baseball, Big Data Baseball for people trying to understand how the best orgs incorporate data and scouting.

More likely to come close to repeat: Porcello or Fulmer?
Eno Sarris
12:30
Fulmer. Third pitch, the change, was really really nice last year.

If the A's sign Santiago Casilla, can they introduce him as Jairo Garcia?
Eno Sarris
12:31
Let's make it happen.

Do you see Tim Anderson as more a defensive utility player down the line or do you think he can be mediocre enough on offense to be at least a consistently league average SS?
Eno Sarris
12:31
He'll be okay enough to be an okay shortstop.
CarrotJuice

Does "empty batting average" mean batting average without any power, or batting average without any walks?
Eno Sarris
12:31
Usually both.

What are the odds that Dyson stays the closer in TEX?
Eno Sarris
12:32
I'd give him 75% or so. 33% lose their jobs, but his sinker makes him relatively safe because he won't give up homers like others.

Hey Eno, have you seen Nathaniel Grow's article on Trout? Any thoughts?
Eno Sarris
12:33
Would never happen for a couple reasons, my lawyer friends say. One is that I think judges would just assume the CBA makes baseball exempt even if it's not explicit yet, and two is that baseball could rule that he can get out of his contract but can't sign another one until the end of the term of the first. You see Mike Trout doing this to make another x million in Japan for the next four years? Probably blackballed when he comes back, too.
ALTHOUGH MIKE TROUT IN JAPAN NUMBERS
12:36
just think on those

at what age do i stop telling people how many months old my son is?
Eno Sarris
12:36

Trea Turner and Charlie Blackmon are trending early on as equals. I love Turner. But value equal to Blackmons actual stats? Your opinion.
Eno Sarris
12:37
Maybe more than Blackmon. If you're talking fantasy, Trea going to steal more than twice what Blackmon will, is my bet.

How impressed are you with the White Sox's off season?
Eno Sarris
12:38
Didn't love the Eaton return myself, but I guess they a bunch of lotto tickets. Love loved the Sale return.
Bob
12:38
Looking to trade A.J. Ramos, Gallo and Hosmer while there is any perceived value of these players. What type of return can I expect? Donaldson.. Betts..?
Eno Sarris
12:38
Aim lower.
Erik
12:38
Why have the White Sox rumors died down? There's no point keeping what they have left given what they're
Eno Sarris
12:39
The other guys are less attractive or on shorter deals. They're available, but who's biting.
Matt

If looking for a young arm in a dynasty league, Urias or Reyes still your best options? Between the two do you have a preference?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Urias. I see better command.
Andrew Friedman
12:39
If Willie Calhoun can't fix his defense should the Dodgers look to move him to an AL team rebuilding? Maybe to the White Sox in a package to get Quintana?
Eno Sarris
12:39
I bet they trade him. funny looking body, great hit tool.
PhanGraphs

How high are you still on Aaron Nola? The injury ending was disappointing, but he really started the year off tremendously. Thanks!
Eno Sarris
12:40
Still a huge fan. Great curve, and his change had the most drop among starters last year!

Steamer had Trumbo at 110 WRC+. Stick him at first and his previous defensive metrics has him around 2+ wins.
Eno Sarris
12:41
I saw launch angle improvements and am willing to give him a bit more than 110.
Hank

I don't get it, Francisco Lindor is considered a top player in all of baseball. Profar is considered washed up but seems to offer a similar profile, especially from an offensive standpoint. 15-15 above average OBP. What gives?
Eno Sarris
12:41
Profar's arm and the fact that he hasn't played short in a while?
Sonny
12:41
why is it Ryon with an 'O'?
Eno Sarris
12:41
Let's ask his mom!
