Manaea's numbers in the final few months of last season were amazing. What do you think his 2017 stat line looks like?
Eno Sarris
12:52
Haven't seen enough out of that slider to fully believe yet. I think his ceiling for next year is his ful season numbers for last year.

Does musgrove make the Astros rotation out of ST? Who is the odd man out?
Eno Sarris
12:53
He's sixth but someone in that rotation will get hurt this year.
Dan

How good can Kevin Maitan be? Is he worth drafting with the #2 pick in a first year player dynasty draft?
Eno Sarris
12:53
Yes.

Moncada's upside is? Reasonable career is?
Eno Sarris

Sano with defensive value?

Always appreciate your take on pitchers. I can keep as many of these at the price listed for standard 5x5. Who stays, who goes: Sonny Gray- $18, Wacha- $10, Nola- $7, Eduardo Rodriguez- $7, Wainwright- $6, Paxton-$3, Manaea- $2, Tillman- $1
Eno Sarris
12:54
Keep Nola Paxton Manaea
I would have said Ed, but he hurt his knee again.

Have we reached peak IPA consumption? Most bearded folks are ordering Mexican lagers as of late.
Eno Sarris
12:55
Sessions and pilsners seem on the come.

What if I'm bored of sours?
Eno Sarris
12:56
Saisons? Dark lagers? I mean, I love beer because whenever I'm tired of a style, there's another one to explore. I've got a bunch of BA stouts in the fridge. If that's not enough for you, move on, nobody's making you drink beer.

V v important question... prior to going out and drinking good beer, when do you brush your teeth? Sometimes I drink a throw away first to get the minty taste out of my mouth. What's the best strategy?
Eno Sarris
12:57
Because hops can be such a burnout, you could actually try a stout first. It's backwards by ABV, but mint in a stout is fine.

Does Dipota begin every morning with a look in the mirror and asks "What trade can I make today?"

I saw an online ad for bacon. The fact that someone would have to market their bacon online makes me very suspicious of that bacon.

We're entering the arbitration avoidance / best shape of his career pronouncement period.. have any mildly legal stimulants you might suggest to help through the boredom?
Eno Sarris
12:58
I suggest ludes. NOT QUAALUDES TO BE PERFECTLY CLEAR.

Eno you forgot to mention OHSO for the guy going to phx/scottsdale. Place has a hell of a happy hour.
Eno Sarris
12:58
Decent beer too.
Eric

What do you think about Joe Ross this year? Is he top 50?
Eno Sarris
12:58
By talent, I'm buying.
Ben

I have a gut feeling that Benintendi will be a lot better than a lot of people expect. A gut feeling, and after watching him play, of course.
Eno Sarris

The projections for league-average power seem really weird to me. I don't get them at all. Push that power projection and you're looking at a .290/350/500 type player with good D...
Matt

Regarding Boras - 60 Minutes did a pretty cool piece on him like 3 or 4 years ago. Part of his "schtick" is that his agency focuses only on baseball, and thus knows all it's ins and outs.

Will Albies be a better fantasy player of baseball player and is his Katoh ranking based more on his defensive metrics?
Eno Sarris
1:02
I think he'll steal enough to be a decent fantasy asset. Good hit tool. Elvis Andrus plus a bit of speed, but at second?
Eric

Can you count on Stras to be an ace with his injury history? Also do you think his results will ever match up with his peripherals? Last two years his ERA has been half a run higher than his FIP
Eno Sarris
1:02
Ace when in for sure.

Hey Eno, I want to make my own projections, but unsure how to go about it. What weights should I put into 2016 numbers, previous career numbers, comp career paths, etc?
Eno Sarris
1:03
Start with Marcel -- 5 x last year, 3 x year before, 2 x two years ago, divided by 10. Then tweak.

Why are the A's signing such mediocre veteran talent? In the past two offseasons they have at least been very creative with their trade targets...this year...it seems like we are gunning for mediocrity.
Eno Sarris
1:04
They always sign mediocre veterans -- think back to Piazza, Thomas -- and their trades have brought them a bunch of interesting young starters recently.

Why do we measure baseball players with sabermeters? This is America. We use saberyards.
Alex

Re: Braves prospects: 2 or 3 of them? Let me guess, Swanson and Albies?
Eno Sarris
1:05
Okay wasn't thinking Swanson, and was just thinking Albies, Maitan, and Soroka in my head but sure Allard is probably interesting.
