Eno, my dear Eno, I'm hungover today. Make me laugh.
Eno Sarris
12:01
oh you think I'm a clown, funny like a clown, funny ha-ha?
Ryan

Who's a better bullpen arm next season: Greg Holland or Joe Blanton?
Eno Sarris
12:02
Floor for Blanton, ceiling for Holland. If I liked my closer, I'd get Blanton.
BL27
12:02
what to expect about Miguel Sano in 2017 ? 35 HR - 90 RBI ?
Eno Sarris
12:02
Too early to hang the injury tag on him, so yeah.
Jason
12:03
What do you think of the Angels and Matt Wieters rumors? Any truth to it or is it just Boras trying to drum up interest?
Eno Sarris
12:03
Seems like a position they addressed?

Trea Turner

Hey Eno, Vlad GIF was great, never gets old. I've got a high pick in dynasty draft coming up - debating about moving the pick for James Paxton or Jharel Cotton vs drafting a bat/arm ... could use the MLB SP - welcome your thoughts!
Eno Sarris
12:05
As much as I like Paxton, projections provide a better floor for Paxton and he's like the hardest throwing lefty in the game, so it's a good time to get him.

Where in the world is Jose Bautista going to land?
Eno Sarris
12:05
Toronto.
Jamie Sayer
12:05
Crap, I meant Trea Turners current ADP is astronomically high. Is he worth the gamble as a late 1st round / early 2nd round pick?
Eno Sarris
12:05
Still giggity.
Bork

How do you predict the Twins/Dozier saga ending?
Eno Sarris
12:05
A trade, probably to the Dodgers.
Tyson Ross
12:05
So I'm leaning towards the Cubs. What do you think of my decision?
Eno Sarris
12:05
If they've sold me on the six man rotation, I'm in. If I'm the sixth starter in a five man... Texas.

Should we be concerned that Kershaw has missed significant time with back problems in 2 of the last 3 years? Could this be a problem moving forward?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Having just entered the world of back problems, it's a worry. These things don't go away.
JohnBoy
12:06
I can keep 3 of Gausman, Harvey, Cotton, Shoemaker, and Berrios- who do you like?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Gaus Shoe and... wow. Maybe Cotton, but nobody blames you if you take Harvey over Cotton or Shoe. Harvey's all over the place. Bad surgery, but he had the good version and he's young.
Zach
12:07
Read the NYP piece on Clint Frazier? Fantastic anecdote about Reggie Jackson taking him to get frozen yogurt.
Eno Sarris
12:07
I've interviewed him twice and it's been great each time, he's a confident young man, but Laurila has interviewed him a ton and I haven't been able to fit my piece in.
12:08
Saw him at the AFL All Star Game, and then the Futures Game, and said, next stop real All Star Game? And he said "you said it."

You a Desclafani fan...i? I have him as an affordable NL only keeper but am having a hard time getting excited and thinking about gambling on someone like Shawn Kelley or Scott Schebler instead for an even cheaper price.
Eno Sarris
12:09
Kelley is a decent gamble. I like DeScla a little better than his projections, he's an interesting low spin sinker low spin curve plus slider guy now, but I don't think of him as a 1 or 2 in most leagues.
Gattis
12:09
What do you see for playing time for him? Projections are in the 350 range, but he got 500 last year and showed gains in power and zone control. He could be gold in AL only 2 catcher, but its him or Beltre or Edwin Diaz for my last slot.
Eno Sarris
12:10
Yeah but Beltran and Lucroy ahead of him at his best positions. I take Diaz.
CarrotJuice
12:10
Do you like the Mariners moves from yesterday?
Eno Sarris
12:10
So many moves. Gohara for Smyly is fine though.
Dave
12:11
You think the A's are pretty much done for the offseason? Or do you think they add one or more of the positionless sluggers that seem to be cheaper these days?
Eno Sarris
12:12
They'd have to release an interesting player, though, and they haven't done that in the past. They just signed Jairo Garcia / Santiago Casilla and I wonder if they don't sign a starter to push Triggs to the pen, but I think thy might be done.
Colby Lewis
12:12
Eno - as seen in the attached graph, as a batter collects PA's against a specific hitter, his batting average against that pitcher rises. Do you think this is because the batter figures the pitcher out over time, or because only the best hitters stick around that time?
Eno Sarris
12:13
I'd be interested in the sampling issues, since all research so far has said BvP doesn't matter. And yeah, at the tail end, a veteran has to be pretty good to get that many PA vs a single pitcher. I will say my intuition says this should be true, because how many tricks can a pitcher pull in the end.
Bjork
12:14
Hi Eno! Thoughts on Polanco doing a Betts 2016 impersonation? Chances on him putting it altogether for a healthy season and .300/.360 and 30 homers/25 steals?
Eno Sarris
12:14
10-15%? I feel like he has more of a track record than Betts did, so we have more of a handle on his true talent, which would put his power lower.
