Just finished up a talk with John Mallee the hitting coach for the Cubs. Got a good piece for next week.

are you familiar with michael jackson (the beer guy)? you should be on talk shows showcasing beer -
Eno Sarris
12:02
The other Michael Jackson! He was a great writer.

Charlie Morton or Nathan Karns as late option ?
Eno Sarris
12:02
Karns is at 92 or so, a little bit of rise. Morton at 94, so much sink. Would love to know how much he's throwing the splitter. Lean Morton a bit.

Any hope for Mondesi Jr to take the starting 2b job and do something with it?
Eno Sarris
12:04
He still has options. I bet it's Colon and Merrifield. Cuthbert looks slow to me.

What are the things that separate Archer from Pineda?
Eno Sarris
12:04
Better command in the given year, enough strike ones to be less predictable.

Tim Tebow going to the wrong on-deck circle then gets a standing ovation for grounding into a double play. Spring Training is wonderful.
Eno Sarris
12:05
I think it's amazing. If you just breathe and relax, it's funny. I mean Will Ferrel took a real at-bat in a spring game. Everything will be okay.

How concerned are you about Lester velocity -2.0 MPH in his first Spring Training start? How many starts till it's time to panic?
Eno Sarris
12:05
You can still get .7-1 tick over the course of spring, so it's more of a medium concern now.

How has nobody gotten hype about DeGrom dialing up to 96 in his first spring start???
Eno Sarris
12:05
I love that man.

Do you have home/road splits for individual pitch effectiveness? I've heard you report that Greinke had trouble with his slider at Chase Field. Is it surprising that Robbie Ray did so well with his slider last year?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Great idea. Also pretty granular. If you do it on all sliders home and away, you can get some sense of what altitude does. Coors robs like two inches of drop from the curveball.

Eno, when is the last time you thought about Marquis Grissom?
Eno Sarris
12:06
I think of him sometimes when I see high socks or gaps in front teeth. That sounds mean, but I really liked that player.

ERod has managed some spring innings without the ER. (Sorry.) What does he need to show to be back in your good graces?
Eno Sarris
12:07
I guess no more talk about the knee, and good velo. I don't know his velo.

are we really expecting Ian Desmond to become a "better" or more consistent player in Coors? 2nd half of last year was UGLY and Arlington is hitter friendly. convince me I shouldn't worry about his long cold stretches and that we'll see 20/20 seasons ahead. or am I not that crazy to doubt this guy?
Eno Sarris
12:08
Well, he's BABIP-dependent and that park is best for BABIP, so maybe the great stretches will be SCORCHING HOT.
rick

which peripheral stats do you look at for pitching now that may not be as well known as FIP, xFIP, and the like?
Eno Sarris
12:08
I don't really look at those! I prefer swSTR% and GB% early on. Velocity.

what do you see from Brock Stewart this year?
Eno Sarris
12:08
Some great fill-in starts, maybe he takes a role late in the year.
Dave

Tried trillium and navigation breweries in the greater Boston area. Any others you can recommend?

Does Dozier hit 35 hrs this year?
Eno Sarris
12:09
Yes.

Should the WBC have proper qualifying rounds? As it stands, 75% of the teams qualify automatically. If the USA had to play 6-10 qualifiers in the years between tournaments, there would he more build-up to thr main event and fans would get used to rooting for national teams. Would that improve the tournament?
