Props on the new beer site. Digging it so far. RUN THE JEWELS!

Wish I was going to be there but two days earlier have to be in Hawaii for a brew fest on the big island life is RUFF

Marlins' fans rejoice!
Eno Sarris

Meddling owner for sure. Also: bereft of morals.

Can you summarize the difference between BABIP and xBABIP?
Eno Sarris
12:04
By statcast/Andrew Perpetua/xstats definition, xBABIP is: given the trajectory and velocity of that ball what is the likelihood that a given ball in play is a hit. BABIP is just what happened.

How much does the Carter signing hurt Bird? I've got him in Rd 28 in a 10-team league and now I'm really unsure whether to keep him
Eno Sarris
12:05
I think it hurts Austin the most and that's so low that I'd keep him.
Bork
12:05
Hello, friend! I'm currently in a hospital delivery room. BORK JR COMING TODAY. Obviously not right now or else I'd be worst husband ever

Do you like your strike zone above or below the knee?
Eno Sarris
12:05
Below. It's a lot easier to capture where the bottom of the knee is than the top.
The Toe
12:06
Jeimer Candelario is a future all-star. What say you?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Where's he playing in the field?
The Old Professor
12:06
Sano or Desmond as my last keeper in a 12 team h2h keep forever points league?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Sano.
Bill
12:06
Please rank in a keep forever: Rodon, R. Iglesias, Taillon. Thanks!
Eno Sarris
12:07
That order. You could move Taillon ahead of Iglesias, but there's injury and third pitch issues for him.
@OutfieldGrass24
12:07
Is it really feasible to teach a pitcher to throw with more "useful spin?" Have we seen examples of pitchers adding this over time? And if so, is it a matter of #grips, or arm/wrist action?
Eno Sarris
12:08
I think it's slot, and yeah, we've seen guys make massive changes in arm slot: Jake Arrieta, Rich Hill the first that come to mind. One team official told me that Arrieta's was the largest change in Pfx history.
JV
12:08
Miggy and G. Polanco OR Goldschmidt and Beltre (5x5 OBP league)
Eno Sarris
12:08
First two. Miggy and Goldie closer than the other two.

Would you consider a 5.2%-ABV beer to be a session beer? If so, should Hoppy Birthday be considered a world class session beer?
Eno Sarris
12:09
I do personally but Hoppy Birthday is.. wait for it... too hoppy for me as a session. I prefer All Day and Easy Jack.

I like several SP in this group. Manaea, Paxton, Nola, J.Gray, Cotton and Snell. Can you give me your ranking ?
Eno Sarris
12:09
I think this is the breakout group. Very hard to decide between them, but what the hell: Paxton, Gray, Nola, Snell, Cotton, Manaea. And Cotton might be ahead of Snell.
Coach McGuirk
12:10
I was traveling a lot last week and got to have my first Jai Alai, Prairie Bomb, Space Dust, and Hopslam, none of which are distributed to my area. The first three were fantastic, but Hopslam was a major disappointment. Very strong alcohol taste, not a lot of depth of flavor. Nothing to differentiate it from dozens of other DIPAs out there. Can you, or someone here, explain what makes it so popular?
Eno Sarris
12:10
At its best its so honey and floral and can be amazing. But I've always found it strong myself.
J. Peterman

E-no sunshine when she's gone...
Eno Sarris

Song always gets me.

Carlos Carrasco and Kendrys Morales or Kevin Gausman and Miguel Sano. For 2017 only.
Eno Sarris
12:13
Carrasco side. Morales going to have a good year.
Adam
12:13
What likely outcome do you see for Sonny Gray in '17?
Eno Sarris
12:14
Better than last year, but closer to his projections than his history. Still hasn't really found a third pitch that he'll stick with for more than a week. Is working on curve, so I bet he gets his command of that pitch back.
Aladdin Sane
12:15
Runner on second in extra innings rule. WHAT?
Eno Sarris
12:16
Well I hate that particular rule so much because more bunts and sac flies are poop and we'd get more of those. And if there was anything, we should implement it in the 15th to avoid those 22 inning monstrosities that kill a pitching staff and produce inning after inning of desperate swings.
Eno Surris
12:16
If you could have one piece of Baseball Data that you don't have access to now, what would you like and how would you apply it to your work?
Eno Sarris
12:17
Minor league track man, or hand slot, or spin axis. The first, to find sweet young high spin pitchers like Touki Toussaint. The second two, to better understand useful spin.
