Suppose I had a newborn son. What small steps would pay the biggest dividends in maximizing his chances of a successful MLB career? E.g. making him bat lefty.
Eno Sarris
12:02
Switch more than just lefty I guess, since if he's a true lefty there are positions he can't play.

At what price are you willing to gamble on Puig this year? Lets say standard $260 budget 12 teamer.
Eno Sarris
12:04
I still believe, actually. Not in 30/30, that's the 1%, but in decent power with some steals and good BA. I'd go to 10 bucks. Auction calculator says 7 on a .284/21/7 projection in 540 PA.

What kind of changes can Chris Bosio & co. make in order for Eddie Butler to be a part of a future Cubs rotation?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Story going up today, but it's clear he has to find his old changeup. The difference in movement is so stark it seems like he went from a splitter to a regular change. It's about that time to try the splitter again, even if he was nervous about health or whatever.

Think the Brewers move Braun soon? His full no trade kicks in soon, and the Brewers will have a ton of young OF knocking on the door soon. If not a trade, should they look into moving him to first base?
Eno Sarris
12:07
They trying to keep his trade value as high as possible. I think they might have to eat some money, even though 4/80 at this point is pretty reasonable, if they want good prospects, but I bet it happens this deadline.

Who can you squeeze more fantasy value out of: Orlando Arcia, Ozzie Albies or Raul Mondesi?
Eno Sarris
12:07
Albies. I think he'll have a good BA and some steals.
Kris

Benitendi or Mazara in fantasy? Real life?
Eno Sarris
12:09
It might be Mazara in fantasy and Ben in real life, particularly in OBP leagues, because Mazara's power might be more impressive in the end.

Is there a WAR rate stat? I don't know how to ask this properly...I want to compare value of players who have more/less PAs or IP..."How much WAR they accumulate over a period of time / same denominator?"
Eno Sarris
12:09
Some rate it out to WAR/600 as in PA. It's probably a bad idea, though, because you can have below replacement work, you can actually go backwards, it's not a counting stat that just goes up.

One of the biggest questions I took away from your article on Jason Heyward was, why in god's name was anyone pitching Yasiel Puig inside?
Eno Sarris
12:11
That was super weird to me, but it might also be a failure on my part to capture more off the plate inside with my query. When you're working in pfx that way, you have to draw a line, and maybe pitchers are having success going way inside to Puig? Still, you'd think he'd be bad just off the zone inside and inside in the zone if they were going there so much.

last week there were no beer questions people.....let's try to fix this....Eno, how's Octo going? When would we see more events posted?
Eno Sarris
12:13
Good but also v stressful. So many teams -- Conde Nast, Pitchfork, Stink Digital, Good Beer Hunting, BeerGraphs, and ZX Ventures -- means lots of different slacks and emails and woof. I know we have a Run the Jewels show coming in Durham in March! More on the way.

Do you expect 2017 Jose Ramirez to have a better, worse or similar year to this past season?
Eno Sarris
12:14
Worse. Slightly lower batting average, fewer steals. And all those doubles aren't going to turn into homers.
hooha

I'm having a hard time finding steals outside the first few rounds unless the player is a zero in other cats. What is your general Speed strategy and any favorite mid-draft targets?
Eno Sarris
12:15
I generally avoid the Billy Hamilton types, but I also place mid-table in steals. I try to get guys with power and speed early and then supplement with whatever steals guys are left after the runs in the middle. Steals are the best things to 'punt' because you can get runs without steals and they aren't co-related to other stats that well.

Is it me, or are the Nats failing to maximize their window? Six of eight position players are free agents within two years. Shouldn't they be a bit more aggressive getting a bullpen arm and a real utility player?
Eno Sarris
12:16
I think there are still pieces out there for the bullpen, and guys like Difo can be turned into utility players easily.

Has the excitement on argon Healy taken a hit with the A's signing Plouffe and perhaps looking at adding another 1B?
Eno Sarris
12:18
Yeah, if he plays DH he might take a 10% hit on his true talent and he's worth much more long term as a third baseman. FWIW, I think this might be a short term problem more than a long term. I still see him outplaying his competition, and they're all on shorter term deals.

Pod's post this morning told me to take Max Kepler off my sleeper list. What say you, Eno?
Eno Sarris
12:20
I sold Kepler in a one-year league before he went into the tailspin because his statcast numbers weren't great. But the year to year correlation on statcast wasn't as amazing as I thought it would be when I ran it. I think he'll still hit 15 homers and steal 10 bases and have a good OBP, but that's not worth a poop ton in today's game.

I've been reading FG for a few years now. Could you please tell me the origin of the general animus toward Cistulli? And also what percentage of it is playful rather than sincere?
