Have you ever had any beer from De Garde Brewing from Tillamook, OR? They have some of the best sours I've ever had.
Eno Sarris
1:22
So. Good.

No.

I had a problem last weekend... I brought some brewskies ice fishing and just couldn't drink them before they froze!? When they were in the "cooler" they were fine, but you had to drink them within 5 minutes until they became slushi! What should I do?
Eno Sarris
1:23
Light beers that taste fine with ice or higher alcohol beers/hard alcohol that won't freeze.

what does your crystal ball have for Wheeler this year?
Eno Sarris
1:23
I'm so afraid to look into that ball.

Hey Eno, who is the first reliever to make a sam dyson like impact this year?
Eno Sarris
1:24
Blake Treinen has his same fastball.

Thoughts on players who refuse to adjust to being shifted on constantly?
Eno Sarris
1:25
There is some validity to the idea that if you turn a power hitter into a slappy other way singles guy, you still won some.
Greg
1:25
Believe in Harvey this year? Lynn, Richards?
Eno Sarris
1:25
Harvey Richards Lynn because if they're all crapshoots, go with peak value.

How could anything involving Raekwon be considered a guilty pleasure? Dude's a rap legend.
Eno Sarris
1:26
True. I don't think people think of Tash in the same regard though.

Wine goes better with pizza than beer.

James

I know you liked Triggs a little last year..what do you see this year?
Eno Sarris
1:27
I'm into it. Just the idea that someone from that arm slot could throw a changeup and start is v exciting.
El Duderino
1:28
Is Tebow going to ST?
Eno Sarris
1:28
Don't really care. More power to him for trying something, but doesn't mean I think he's going to be a big leaguer.
Curtis

Beer goes better with beer.
Eno Sarris
1:28
Natch.

Why is Syndergaard trying to throw harder??? Pretty much all the late 90's and early 2000's Aces use to no throw at 100% until needed and sat at the lower range of their velocity. (Pedro, Clemens, Smoltz, Glavine, Haladay, Maddux, Schilling, Etc)
Eno Sarris

Harry Pav has some evidence that this helps a pitcher stay healthier, too. But I couldn't find evidence that pitchers are pitching closer to their max in general, at least not in the Pfx era.

The Sadies
It's Easy Like Walking (feat. Kurt Vile)

Have you heard yet?
Eno Sarris
1:30
Yeah. Interesting.
Sometimes he's too low energy, so something like this has upside for me.

Gregory Polanco - repeats stats from 2016, a little better in 2017 or big jump in 17/
Eno Sarris
1:31
Maybe a little more power, but not a huge jump. He's already very good.
BOBBBY

Which team's FO do you think is most risk-averse? Perhaps to the detriment of their overall standing?
Eno Sarris
1:32
The Mets actually come to mind, but they've also signed Yo and Wright to long deals. I think of the Orioles and their lack of SP depth.
Orange President

Do you think Domingo Santana will do enough to be valuable in a 10 team league?
Eno Sarris
1:33
Dunno, but decent last round pick because you'll know quickly if his shoulder is healthy and he's lifting the ball. If he improves his FB rate, watch out. Hits the ball hard, and GB/FB becomes meaningful v quicky.
Lone Wolf

Cascade Sours -- All hits, all of the time.
Eno Sarris
1:34
Lots of singles in that lineup. Russian River hits homers, but Cascade has one or two triples and homers in that lineup for me. I like them, don't get me wrong.
El Duderino

I remember back when Zumaya was pitching, people were saying that he was already over the natural capability of a human. But is there evidence that a 100MPH fastball is better than 95 with sink or wicked run/fade?
