was listening to some old school Lupe and he's not too far off the mark these days

What's your take on Blake Snell this year? I'm not expecting ace like numbers but as a super late round pick maybe a profitable opportunity
Eno Sarris
12:02
Decent floor, but yeah maybe ace like upside. The slider was a big deal last year, giving him four pitches I believe in... command of course is the question.

OBP keeper. Trade Beni for Dahl? They're both sexy time bc of lineup or park
Eno Sarris
12:02
I think in OBP I'd keep Benintendi. Huge, UGE, floor.
Michael Waka Flaka
12:03
How many at bats for Matt Holliday this year? Think he's worthy of an OF5 spot in a points league?
Eno Sarris
12:03
500 or so? Between DH, 1B, and RF, there's a ton of opportunity for him. He hit the ball hard last year, he's not done.

Unhappily reading your O's depth piece. It felt like there was cheap, if not exceptional, pitching to be had this off-season. Why did the O's refuse to add any? The paranoiac in me feels like they're preparing to tank to make a midyear fire sale more palatable/inevitable...
Eno Sarris
12:04
At least a guy like Jorge de la Rosa, right? I don't get it.
Brian

Why do you like baseball? Had a hard time putting into words why when talking to friends.
Eno Sarris
12:05
I actually like the slower pace but I love baseball for so many reasons. I love sitting in the stands with a friend and a brew, not paying attention to every single pitch, and enjoying the weather and the company. I love sitting behind home plate and trying to figure out what each pitch is, what the pitcher is trying to do, what the hitter is thinking. I love sitting at home and having the tools to know exactly what is happening. I love thinking hard about baseball and I love not thinking about baseball.

Let's say that 50 years from now, the WBC is the baseball equivalent of the World Cup. All the best players play in it, and every baseball fan watches it. What steps have been taken to get it there, and is baseball better and more popular because of it?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Finding a way to get good pitching in the tourney without hurting them all is the way forward. Baseball would be better for it, yes.
Paul

Padres bullpen looks like the most interesting in baseball with the return of Capps, the experiment of Bethancort, and guys like Hand, Buchter, Quckenbush, and Maurer still there. Who gets the saves? Capps?
Eno Sarris
12:07
Capps if healthy. Best trade value.
Prince

What would you pay for Ryon Healy in AL-only and mixed leagues?
Eno Sarris
12:09
As much as $18 in only. Doubt I go further even though I like him because there's still a decent amount of talent at the position. Probably only $5-7 in mixed.
Erik
12:09
Do we know enough to give a rough estimate as to what percentage of ERA is attributable to the pitcher, the catcher, and the defense?
Eno Sarris
12:09
We're getting better, but no I don't think so.
Dr. Spaceman

Thoughts on Gerrit Cole? regarding the injuries he had last year- do they explain his struggles? Should we expect 2015 Gerrit Cole in 2017?
Eno Sarris
12:11
Maybe, but why did his slider percentage go down, why did he lose swinging strikes. Maybe I was wrong about cole. I always thought he was going to be an ace.
Personal lude. Here's one of my favorite rap tunes of all time. I dunno, maybe it's a guilty pleasure, maybe people hate it, but it hits the right notes for me and I'm usually a conscious rap guy.
12:12
Anyway, we were listening to another one of his tunes. The one with Snoop. In the car this morning.
12:14
and my son literally said these words:
"Dad, I like Snoop! Dad, he said drink too much, that's silly! You can't drink too much! That's silly."
"..."
"Dad, did you hear that why did he say drink too much hahah"
"Maybe he had to pee too much because he drank too much"
"Yeah maybe he had to pee too much because you can't drink too much water."
"yeah"
"oh, look dad, there's Snoop Dogg the Tree!"

I keep finding myself grabbing TB and A's SPs late (snell, Cobb, manaea, cotton). Do you like these guys are am I really shooting myself in the foot with low run support and win probability. I play in a pts league where wins are +10.
Eno Sarris
12:14
Tampa might be okay, but this is a problem I've had on staffs. I don't know what to do about it except make sure your aces are on good teams? You have to think about it a little but wins are terrible to project.
PF
12:14
What do you make of the Blue Jays bullpen with Smith and Howell? Still crying out for Blanton?
Eno Sarris
12:15
I see two or three bullpens that need Blanton.
Hank
12:15
Which Twins player do you believe will have a better 2017: Miguel Sano or Byron Buxton?
Eno Sarris
12:15
Sano. Although what's the judging factor. By wRC+, easily Sano, so easily. By WAR, dunno, Buxton will be a good defender.
Maxamuz
12:15
Eno Eno Eno can't you see - Lucas Duda is gonna hit 53 - I just love his flashy ways - I guess thats why I'm broke and he gets paid.
Alex Jose Reyes
12:15
Who takes the job for the cards: Weaver or Wacha?
Eno Sarris
12:15
Wacha. Easy. Weaver still has options and that's a perfect sixth starter situation.
PF
12:16
Matt Latos is signing with the Jays. Thoughts?
Eno Sarris
12:16
THE CRITTER IS COMING.

Expectations on Tyler Glasnow and Joe Musgrove.
Eno Sarris
12:17
Glasnow is revamping delivery, which makes him hard to project but also more interesting than I would have thought. Musgrove has really unique movement. I bet he has Smyly-like fits and starts.
Husk
12:17
If I'm looking to target a few teams that will be the first to switch closers this year, am I right to target TEX and MIN?
Eno Sarris
12:20
Minny for sure, but Dyson has a really high floor with that Britton-esque sinker. I think Rockies could be in flux, depending on Holland's velo when he comes back, Nationals obviously, Athletics, Marlins maybe, Brewers. Dbacks, Phils, Angels. Last two probably first on the list with Minny.

Are you into Jamacian twerk music? I'd imagine you are.
