Any concern in the craft beer industry that the supply is outpacing the demand? It seems like there are new breweries opening at an incredible rate.
Eno Sarris
1:33
There is, but the concern is more about that's happening at the store. Many of those new breweries are super local, which is still fine. Plenty of hoods need a better brewpub.

I'm arguing with this fool that thinks Belle is a HOFer. Does he have any argument? I don't see one.

Not particularly close, no. Had a great four year peak, but wasn't a good defender and didn't get the longevity.

Eno! Very excited for Phoenix Pitch Talks on Sunday ... Another brewery recommendation for Spring Training visitors: Wren House in central Phoenix - not near any parks but brewing the best stuff in the area right now IMO
Eno Sarris

I'm going to Wren House tomorrow night!

How much optimism should there be for Heywards "mechanical overhaul"?

Considering his history. some.

I'm looking for some advice. I am a college student about to graduate soon. I have accepted a software development job at a large tech company but I have been interviewing with a front office for a software systems position. I do want to work in baseball, but more in an analytical position that I wouldn't get to do here. Do you think it would be a lot easier to slide over from a different position in the front office or to come from a prestigious tech company in a couple years

Stick with tech. Work baseball on the side.

Still love for Domingo Santana? Or has the injuries changed your tune?
Eno Sarris
1:37
Still love... or is there new word on something this spring lol.

Do you think Shelby Miller can bounce back? He's on 26. Could last year be more mental than eroding skill?
Eno Sarris
1:38
Velocity up a bit, and he's making poor decisions with his pitching mix IMO. Something of a good bounce coming, just not sure if it's to like a 4 ERA or better.

Eno what tips can you give the average fan on how to identify what pitch a pitcher is throwing. I struggle knowing the difference between a cutter and a change up. I think most fans are unable to recognize pitches and it's a cool part of the game and I would like to learn more about it.
Eno Sarris

The best thing to do is sit somewhere behind the plate where you can see the velocity readings on the scoreboard. Then you can easily separate cutter from the change because the cutter will be 2-4mph less than fastball and change should be 7+. Curve is easy. Sinker should fade -- go to arm side -- four-seam should look straight and pop.

What's your general approach to steals in mixed auctions? Seems like pre-season valuations for them are always below what you have to pay, but then by EOS steals guys end up earning more (per your 2016 Top 20 piece). Thanks!

I'm turning a bit. Steals so precious now. I used to wait on them and just try to get steals with my power early but I think I'll target them a bit. In dynasty, it's super hard to get steals because they come from young players, so the 'fade prospects' strategy gets dinged there.

Like what you see from Gsellman today?
Eno Sarris
1:40
Yeah. I wish I'd seen a few 95s but it looked good.
