Why do projections seem to like Tampa Bay more than common sense? Is it one big blind spot, or lots of little reasons adding up?
Eno Sarris
1:14
I think it's a bit of the no-holes thing, which is hard to appreciate. If you look at their projections, only one position is projected for less than two wins by rounding error. And then the same is true of the pitching staff, I guess.

Does Bellinger have a path to the majors this year? Agonz injury?
Eno Sarris
1:14
Outfield injury too?
Jeff in T.O.

Please Eno, you're our only hope. Positions and salary don't really matter, keep two in a deep 15 teamer. Dahl, Bregman, Buxton, Mazara, Willson Contreras. First two right?
Eno Sarris
1:14
yes but Mazara gah

Likeliest Brave's pitching prospect to be at least League average in 2018, Weber, Newcomb, or Sims?
Eno Sarris
1:15
Newcomb.

Feel like Gsellman is flying under the radar as first half replacement for Harvey/deGrom. Have you heard any news updates on these guys that could indicate what sort of roll he'll have (Gsellman)?
Eno Sarris
1:15
I think Gsellman is in the first chair for the fifth starter role, or yeah fourth starter if one of the surgery returners isn't ready.

What's the key to attending a 12:10 "Business Person's Special" game? Pretending you're still in the office and emailing? Or just straight up saying you'll be out for four hours?
Eno Sarris
1:16
Early lunch into something came up.

Could you please explain to me your criticism of Taillon's change-up? I'm not arguing with you, just curious as to why you're not a fan of it at present
Eno Sarris
1:17
Less movement than his sinker and not even good movement compared to his four-seamer, and bad velocity gap. Mediocre outcomes.

Is sending your kid to school when they obviously have a cold a big deal? I mean, in this (Nor Cal) weather, don't we all have a cold?
Eno Sarris
1:18
No fever, get going kiddo.

You mentioned Grienke's learning curve for the slider in the desert, and we all know about the Coor's field affect on curves. Other than giving up on breaking balls at home, what options are viable for Pitchers in these situations?
Eno Sarris
1:18
More spit? Moving to the cutter?
Nelson

don't forget Angry Chair in Tampa.

What do you make of the Blue Jays rotation? PECOTA has them primed for A LOT of regression..... do you agree with that?
Eno Sarris
1:20
They have a weird collection of pitchers that projection systems won't like, but have proven themselves at least over the last few years. Happ's two very-different fastballs, Estrada's high-spin curve, and Sanchez' unliftable sinker are possibly projection breakers. I sometimes think that one great pitch can do that.

Went looking for beer for Super Bowl, local market had 15 packs of Founders All Day for $15. WINNING!
I notice your sandwiches often have fruit in them. Is it the sweetness you are looking for?
Eno Sarris
1:21
I want sweet, bitter, crunchy, soft, spicy/vinegar in some sort of combination in all my sandos.

Are you getting any Pliny the Younger this year?
Eno Sarris
1:21
Tomorrow! It's a big old Triple IPA that reminds me of Hopslam in ways good and bad.

what is your favorite Craft Pilsner? I love Prima Pils from Victory but would like to try other.
Eno Sarris
1:22
Pivo from Firestone Walker, Scrimshaw, but the very favorite is Pinkus Ur-Pils, and you can get that at Bevmo.
