Might Austin Meadows be fantasy-relevant by July?
Eno Sarris
12:18
Gotta be the answer when one of the big three OFs go down.

Is Berrios still a decent bet to bounce back after last year's rough audition?
Eno Sarris
12:18
Yes, the movement on his pitches is v good, all of them. Just needs to figure out how to get ahead.

I feel like Nolan Arenado is still underrated. He's kinda pretty amazing but tends to get brought up as much in the elite-guys-not-named-Trout conversations. Agree?
Eno Sarris
12:19
I'm not sure the park factors for Coors are fair to Rockies players, which lowers his wRC+ and WAR, making him possibly underrated for sure.

Do you think Nola struggles with injuries this year ?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Nothing predicts future injury like past injury.

Can you name a few off the radar OFs with 1-2 years experience in the bigs that can breakthrough in 2017?
Eno Sarris
12:22
Outfielders under 26 that were qualified last year http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=of&stats=bat&lg=all&qual=y&type=8&season=2016&month=0&season1=2016&ind=0&team=0&rost=0&age=14,26&filter=&players=0 Not a sleeper on the list, unless you count Mazara, but I wouldn't call him off the radar. Relax the requirement and a few stand out: Keon Broxton, Kevin Kiermaier, Domingo Santana, Brandon Drury.

New Diamondback high on Drury. Second base job seems like his to lose. Guess his stat line?
Eno Sarris
12:23
.270/.330/.450. Not much more than last year, some BABIP regression, still decent.
Kevin
12:23
What are you feelings toward Josh Hader? Any valuable fantasy contributions this season?
Eno Sarris
12:23
I like him! Dunno when, but I think he'll be good.

When you pitched October to Anna Wintour, howd it go? What did you wear?
Eno Sarris
12:23
Sweat pants.

Is there a topic of discussion or just general chat?
Eno Sarris
12:23
Oh you'll learn quickly.

When are you opening "Eno's Sandos," your inevitable international sandwich conglomerate?
Eno Sarris
12:25
Grips: sandwiches, beer to go, taps.
Eno!
12:25
Hey Eno, see a rebound from greinke this year?
Eno Sarris
12:25
I do. I think there was a learning curve to throwing that slider in the desert, and then came the oblique thing.
David
12:25
Going to Spring Training in Arizona this year! Any tips for a first-timer?
Eno Sarris
12:27
Arizona Wilderness in Mesa and McFate/Papago in Scottsdale for beer. Keith Law's food guide has a great deli and taco spot and sando spot in it.
Snowflake
12:27
Is Ryan Raburn a first rounder this year?
Matt
12:27
I'm going to be in Charlotte the Friday before your party. Can you reschedule so I can attend?
Meanwhile back at the chat...
12:27
Hilarity ensues
Eno Sarris
12:27
That's an interlude, but it's not our best.
Kiermaier's Piercing Green Eyes
12:27
When teams do things that don't make sense to us, like DFAing seemingly valuable players or trading players for less than we expect, when should we assume incompetence vs the GMs having unknown information?
Eno Sarris
12:29
Interesting because I immediately think of Danny Valencia and Josh Donaldson on the same teams. I assume we should always assume that there is *something* we don't know, but that balance between makeup issues and talent is different for any GM and then there are the models we don't have access to as well. Doesn't mean we can't criticize the deals, but it is something to think about.
The Toe

Can the Marlins move to Montreal already?
Eno Sarris
12:30
yes.
botchatheny
12:30
on a scale of 1-10, how pumped up are you for the WBC? you can decided the spectrums
Eno Sarris
12:31
6-7. I really like the display of different styles and the enthusiasm, but level of play is better in MLB, and I hate to think we might lose a player in the MLB because of the WBC.
Matt
12:31
Difference between BABIP and xBABIP summarized: Eno vs Giselle. One is a model. The other is not.
Mike Hazen
12:32
Are you a catcher by any chance?
Paul
12:32
So the Rare Barrel is hosting a Trillium night on 2/16. And PseudoSue was delivered to city beer store in cans. And I left the Bay Area at wrong time...
Eno Sarris
12:32
Okay we're getting there because we have beautiful people and jokes and beer in one lude here.
Erik
12:33
Kris Bryant as a prospect was apparently praised for his ability to hit the ball hard to all fields. As a major leaguer, he's had largely a pull power approach, though you certainly can't argue that it hasn't worked. If he taps back into his all-fields power, could he get even better, or would that necessarily come with some loss to his pull power, and make him a worse overall hitter as a result?
Eno Sarris
12:33
I think he'll have to show it eventually. It's the ebb and flow of baseball. Become too one dimensional and everyone pitches you one way.
