Do you like CMart or Maeda for a keeper? Only one dollar value difference in my league.

CMart

Why hasn't Chase Utley been signed anywhere yet? He's projected for about 1.5 WAR/600, making him a very solid backup at worst, and he provides "veteran leadership" which teams tend to pay for. Where might he end up?
Eno Sarris
1:12
Dodgers? I guess Kiké has more versatility or it would have already happened.
Buff

I know it's popular to be down on Junior Guerra. I still think the fastball/splitter combo can be very effective. Thoughts?
Eno Sarris
1:13
No, I like him. Splitters don't have much in the way of platoon splits, effective against both kinds, and I think his curve is mislabeled and it's a slider. If he can harden that up a bit, he could even be better than he was, and with his experience pitching, that's still possible. Velo and a plus change is a good way to start things.

Are you still in on a Puig? I'm wondering if Bellinger ends up replacing by before the end of July.
Eno Sarris
1:13
See above on Puig, but Bellinger can play the OF and is ready, so there is something here. I bet injury sorts it out.
Merv Throneberry
1:14
Gsellman! He's got the lucky hair..and at least a couple of pitches.
Eno Sarris
1:14
A ton of pitches. Just not sure any of them are plus other than the fastball, which suddenly was 94 last year.

Hey I read the October piece about the three fundamental "off" flavors in craft beer - excellent work and very illuminating. I was curious to see how this site would differ from other craft beer sites (that just sort of serve as ad space) but it looks like you are really onto something unique.
Eno Sarris
1:15
It's hard work. I'm hoping to bring audiences together with intersectional stuff on music and beer and the like, and also go deep enough that people can learn there.

How does Ohani compare to Darvish? Are there any other MLB comps for him?
Eno Sarris
1:15
If Darvish was also Cody Bellinger, you'd have your comp.

Is there any real risk that David Dahl isn't an everyday OF for the Rockies?
Eno Sarris
1:17
Nah.

Who has a higher batting average in 2017, Xander Bogaerts or Bennintendi?

Ben.

I recently got promoted at my job and a girl I was flirty with was also recently promoted. should we continue to flirt now that we're both managers or should i keep it strictly professional?
Eno Sarris
1:18
You just got lucky. I think it would be less okay if she was not of the same rank.

Occasionally you hear about players who stop switch hitting. Have you heard of anyone who stopped and then started again?
Eno Sarris
1:18
Didn't Victorino?

Can Maxmusz post the results next week? I'm interested

Why is it called a pair of underwear?
Eno Sarris
1:18
Two legs? Pair of pants!
1:19
Two holes I guess.

Any comment on your new venture being linked to In-Bev and a failure to properly disclose that? Bunhc of established beer writers seem to have taken issue
Eno Sarris
1:19
It's in the press releases, front and center. We're working on an about page that will be up and will include ZX Ventures. Boilerplate emails that went out to prospective writers included ZX.

Have you been to Peace Pizza in Chicago?
Eno Sarris
1:20
Yes and I really enjoyed that spot. Great Tacos around the corner, one of the best places in Chicago.

Who is a 3B that you should target now, for peanuts, before he becomes more expensive, like...peanuts at Whole Foods
Eno Sarris

Maikel Franco

Don't you think the volatile pitcher could reek havoc on a bullpen, costing his team future wins?
Eno Sarris
1:21
Good point!
CamdenWarehouse
1:22
What current players do you think will have the most managerial success?
Eno Sarris
1:23
Jed Lowrie, Sean Doolittle, Javier Lopez, Hank Conger?
Speedo

Dude, Bellinger replaces Gonzo. He's a great fielder at 1B.
Eno Sarris
1:23
I know but Cody is ready now and those things that make him a great fielder at first could make him okay in the OF for a year or two.
Outsourcing Decisions
1:24
Deciding between EE and Stanton as a keeper. Same cost. Are there position scarcity factors I should consider? It's 5 OF and 1B with Corner Infielder league.
