Brooklyn's limited release Sour? $12 6 packs. Gotta be worth my time just because it's cheap, right?
Eno Sarris
12:27
Gonna suck if you don't like the first, but $12 is the price of entry on most sours.

If the worst is confirmed for David Price, who takes that rotation spot? Does that affect your ranking on any other Sox pitcher?
Eno Sarris
12:28
Wright, and I guess he goes up.

I'm thirty-five. is that old?
Eno Sarris
12:29
I'm thirty seven. When the kids don't give me enough sleep I feel super old. Last night they slept till 7 and I feel great.

How many leagues are you in this year?
Eno Sarris
12:29
I CUT IT DOWN! 10.

Do you think position player throwing velocity will ever be a stat?
Eno Sarris
12:30
Already is. Look at Petriello's pieces about outfield arm velo, and in particular, seems he sussed out Harper's second-half throwing woes and injury.

Disney owns ESPN. Disney owns Marvel. A new Thor movie comes out this year. Why are we not seeing a ton of This is Sportcenter spots featuring Noah Syndergaard and Chris Hemsworth trying to one-up each other? The bits practically write themselves.
Eno Sarris
12:30
Who's to blame? Maybe at ESPN they don't think baseball moves the needle enough.

Eno: Who do u like more: Jr. Guerra, T. Skaggs or Manaea in a pts. league where IPs matters most?
Eno Sarris
12:31
Sean I guess, but Junior is compelling.

Most of these articles complaining that MLB doesn't do a good enough job promoting Mike Trout are kind of ignoring the fact that casual and non-fans don't really care about how good he is, and that he's got the personality of of a saltine cracker right? I mean his love of meteorology and his tweet punctuation is funny, but it's not exactly a selling point to the general public.
Eno Sarris
12:32
Yeah, but there are other guys, like see the Thor comment above.
Big Tuna
12:32
How much do you take some spring training stats? What do you pay attention to and what do you ignore when altering your rankings?
Eno Sarris
12:33
Very little. Velocity, extra pitch actually being thrown, and for position players, maybe at the end, a little bit of K%, just because that becomes stable quickly.

Does AJ Ramos hold the closer role all year? Who is the handcuff? BearClaw or Dr. Z?
Eno Sarris
12:34
BearClaw. If they aren't good, I think they keep Ramos in the role all year even if he stumbles.

Hey Eno, I think I'm going to Denver the first weekend of the season, probably staying near Coors and Great Divide. Any other recommendations for where to drink/eat?
Eno Sarris
12:35
buy my book (www.beergraphs.com/book) or just go to Crooked Stave, Falling Rock Tap House, Work & Class resto.

Do you think Musgrove enters 17 in the rotation? Do you think Cotton has a ceiling of a #2? Or is that wishful thinking?
Eno Sarris
12:36
Musgrove is a six behind three guys with injury issues and two other old guys. I'd give him a 40% chance. Cotton to me has number two upside but I've always been a backer.
Jim
12:37
Aren't we going a little crazy on Cotton? He ran a FIP over 4 in AAA last year.
Eno Sarris
12:37
I'm betting that his pitches are great and he won't have as much of a homer problem. He also struck out 11 and walked 3 per nine in that stint you're talking about.
ChicagoCardinal

Is there enough correlation of previously injured pitchers to predictive injury to truly discount guys with "injury history" in a roto league?
Eno Sarris
12:38
The best thing to predict future injury is past injury, yes.

What do you make of the new tunneling stats That came out at Baseball Prospectus?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Good 2.0 on what came before from Roegele.

So I read a lot of fangraphs and ended up with a rotation of Thor, Quintana, Fulmer, Nola, DeSlafani, and Cotton in a 6x6 (with QS). I've got Jensen, Osuna, Ramos, and Capps to round out my P.
Eno Sarris
12:40
Love it.

KLAW says he'd be worried about a friend if he were drinking more than 10 drinks per week. Expect an intervention soon...
Eno Sarris
12:43
Eh I'm around 10 a week, probably not beyond it unless I'm traveling/visiting/special occasion. And I don't live my life worrying about what people think of my habits.
ChicagoCardinal
12:43
Do you prefer 2-3 top 25 pitchers or one of the top 4 guys and maybe another $10 guy?
Eno Sarris
12:43
This year I see around 30 guys I really want and then a whole bucket of other guys, so if I could get three up front and then a bunch of sleepers I'd be happy.

I got Soler in a trade in an AL-only league. I have to offer him a "contract" or release him. My options are: 1yr@$6, 2@$12 or 3@$19. You seemed pretty optimistic about him on the podcast. Thx!
Eno Sarris
12:44
2/12 I think is fine. You get the extra year if he's good, you don't pay too much otherwise.
Eno

Do you see any value in Justin Smoak
