Velo still worth a lot.

Hey ENO! I read an interesting article on Tyler Glasnow this week. He is shortening his delivery and the Pirates are giving him his 2 seam back. Mainly just wanted to share that with you, but does that improve your outlook on him?
Eno Sarris
12:31
If he can throw the two-seam to the middle of the plate because he has confidence in the movement, maybe one or both combined will help his command. He would take a huge leap forward if he could just get ahead more often because the curve is great.

How do you feel about Benintendi going into this year. I can keep him in a keep 6 OBP league, but I'm not sure the upside is there to be a fantasy superstar.
Eno Sarris
12:32
In OBP I think there is absolutely that upside. I think he could eventually have .400 OBP seasons.

If Garrett Richards is throwing normal in spring training, how much do you bid in an AL auction (standard 5x5 roto)?
Eno Sarris
12:32
12-15? low 1/ high 2.

Is AJ Pollock going to return to form this year?
Eno Sarris
12:32
yes.

For fantasy next year, where would you draft Gary Sanchez? 2nd catcher off the board?
Eno Sarris
12:32
yes

Are the Cubs putting themselves in a very dangerous position going into the season with not a ton of 6th starter options (and a 5th starter that doesn't have a ton of MLB experience starting over a full season)? The Cubs have had extraordinary luck with rotation health over the last 2 seasons, they could be in a really tough spot if any of their top 3 starters miss significant time.
Eno Sarris
12:34
Pretty sure they know they need pitching, from what I know they're definitely focused on it. This was a bad offseason to add starting pitching, though.

Drew Smyly as a Mariner: Buy or Sell?
Eno Sarris
12:35
Buy if you're spending like he's a fantasy 4/5 in mixed leagues, 2/3 in AL.

Eno man, I'm wavering on Cotton vs. Gsellman. BP now rates Gsellman a 60 and Cotton a 45. Help me keep the Cotton faith.
Eno Sarris
12:37
We all have our own opinions. By movement, velocity gap, and outcomes, Cotton's change is already better than anything Gsellman throws. G has the velo, and that's all I'll really give him, and it's not like Cotton is below average.

I'm beginning to think Dodgers will sign Utley and go with a platoon (Taylor, Hernandez from right side) at 2B. Agree? Would that be sufficient in NL West, at least until trade deadline?
Eno Sarris
12:38
I think the Dozier deal will happen, maybe three-way... but there's certainly no better second base option available freely.
Devil Ray J. Johnson
12:38
Nate Karns as a Royal: Buy or Sell?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Sell. There's hope -- if he raises the arm slot and finds his health -- but that's two things he has to do, and he was always thought of as injury-prone.

how much do the mets suck this year? obviously, they need bullpen (which they wont pay for apparently), but they also need a catcher, a real CF. Plus they are apparently keeping Bruce, which means conforto wont even play bc TC is a moron.
Eno Sarris
12:40
I actually like Lagares as d-first, and if d'Arnaud's shoulder is healthy, there's hope there. Reed and Robles are good, Smoker is intriguing, and there's a starter that might end up in that pen.
On that last point, let me BIGGEST SIGH EVER. Not to you, but to the team.

Hey Eno, love the chats. If Michael Conforto was still prospect eligible, about where would he place in a top 100? (I'm trying to gauge his value)
Eno Sarris
12:41
I can't believe he'd be worse than top 15.
Mick D

Looking back at the Reds pitching staff since 2012, is it fair to say Dusty once again ruined a staff ( Latos, Bailey, Arroyo, Cingrani, Leake and Broxton) or does the decline of the staff fall more on Price? Or just bad luck or just pitchers?
Eno Sarris
12:41
Latos was always headed there because of his conditioning and mechanics IMO, Arroyo and Bailey were older dudes, and Cingrani was always headed to the pen.

Dude, almost forgot about this chat. Stoked. NFBC Draft Champions. I need your help ENO for some late-late round guys that could impact 2017??
Eno Sarris
12:45
Corey Dickerson, Travis Jankowski, Rajai Davis, Adam Lind if he signs in the right place, Charlie Tilson (5/20+ maybe?) , Alex Dickerson, Hunter Renfroe, Ketel Marte on hitting side. Seems like there's some late speed to be had.
12:47
pitchers: Jeremy Hellickson, Brock Stewart as a stash, Daniel Norris, Jharel Cotton, Jose de Leon, Andrew Triggs, Dylan Bundy (if he's not earlier), Ty Blach (boring but steady), Mike Montgomery.

As a longtime reader I can't tell you the feeling of helplessness I had when I read your chat transcript last week (wasn't here for the live chat) and no one would finish the lightning round intro.
Eno Sarris

Gary Sanchez or Lucroy?
Eno Sarris

Gary
Flaka

Gausmann or Hill?
Eno Sarris

Hill.

why are most pundits bearish on fulmer and you see ace potential, and what worries you about his health? also, would you keep fulmer over dahl in 14 team keeper league? Thanks.
Eno Sarris
12:50
If Fulmer repeats his peripherals from last year, yeah he won't be as good. But with that swSTR% and that change, plus a slider he can now mix in more often for Ks instead of grounders, I see more Ks next year, maybe significantly more.
