Too situational? Not always about the player himself. Think about the eighth hitter in the nL.

Swanson going to be a better real-life player than fantasy? Have an opportunity to turn a $5 swanson into a $5 matz and $2 desclafani in NL only league.
Eno Sarris
12:45
Eh, I mean I love Matz but with injury and arms, I keep the batter there for sure.

Auction Calculator has McCullers 1 spot ahead of Strasburg. You buying that?
Eno Sarris
12:47
You got some strange settings. K9 or something? Default, Stras is 13 spots ahead of Lance. and 184 innings for Lance seems aggressive.

conforto slated to start year in minors. UGH! Wouldn't san fran be a fit for bruce?
Eno Sarris
12:47
Yes on both fronts.
as in UGH and yeah.
12:48
Mets should pay some portion of Bruce's salary and get a minor league reliever back.

What kind of package of prospects would it cost Atlanta to land Longoria after 2017? (assuming TB has a bad year)
Eno Sarris
12:49
They're projected to be good, but yeah this could happen. Depends on too much to say for sure. If Longo takes a step back, might not cost as much as he would now, obv.

Who is the youngest non-Mike Trout player who you'd give a 50% shot at making the hall of fame?
Eno Sarris
12:50
Miggie is a year younger than Cano, at 33. So him.
Eh, maybe they're both in? 50%... Cutch is 30?
Justin
12:51
I can keep 1 in the 16th round. Wcontreras, Oh, Reyes or Carlos Gomez?
Eno Sarris
12:51
Contreras.

Dos Equis with lime is bae. Retort.

Lawnmower choice for me.

Think Sabathia can keep managing contact as much as he did lat y
Eno Sarris

Cutter helped. Just don't know what happens when people know it's coming.

Bregman is the hot name right now. Does he have actual superstar upside, or just an all star/really nice player? I've read conflicting opinions... I'm looking for the next big thing.
Eno Sarris
12:53
I think he'll cut the K rate and keep the power, which is a great way to tap into superstar upside.

What does a guy have to do to get a "toast" from the Great Eno on untappd?
Eno Sarris
12:53
Haha not actually that much on a Thursday-Sunday night when I pull up the stream.

Dude! I just realized that using Brian Eno's first initial makes him Beano.

Assuming Benintendi can build on his call up from last year, how likely is it that he bats in the bottom half of the order all year IF Bogaerts also produces? In a recent podcast you still have Benintendi hitting 9th, even though there has been speculation that he could hit 2nd. You had the order: Pedroia, Bogaerts, Betts, Ramirez as the first 4, that does make sense, but as a Benintendi owner I'd love it if he had an opportunity in the 2 hole.
Eno Sarris
12:56
If XB doesn't actually improve, and Ben is as good as he looked, he's probably better in the 9th hole. Such a loaded lineup.

The times I've seen Luis Perdomo's change/splitter on video it looks like a nice pitch, but it looks pretty average on paper. Should he be throwing it more and has video fooled you on any pitches?
Eno Sarris
12:57
He's pairing it with his best pitch, the sinker, so it's not as 'different' as it could be put up against his primary pitch. A cutter could make the whole thing hum. Because his four-seam is meh.

If you were starting a real baseball team, which of the top-3 prospects (Benintendi, Swanson, Moncada) would you prefer to have on your squad?
Eno Sarris
12:58
I'm a floor guy. It might be stupid, but it's who I am. Ben.
Although I suppose Swanson's floor is super high and he plays a tougher position.

re: your article on randomness, doesn't it stand to reason that luck would play a bigger factor when the final cumulative score is 8 or 10, rather than 200
Eno Sarris
1:00
It does! I think they did try to undo some of that by using the line rather than other measures of talent but some differences in the game will always matter. I always wondered if that was an underrated part of being good at defense -- keep the scores close and a comeback is easier?

Enooo. So I'm curious what your take on this years "position scarcities" (or the reverse) and how they differ from last year. Obviously shortstop has changed tremendously since last year and it seems like C has become even more of a wasteland. Any others you would care to talk about?
