I don't think there are enough (team-allowed) bullets in pitchers arms to have good pitchers at more games.

Soon I'll be a grad student and will be living alone, shopping for one, and eating a lot of sandwiches. How should I shop to optimize my sandwich game while minimizing the excesses that come from having to eat everything alone before it spoils?

Just pair dinner with tomorrow's lunch. Cook for 1.5-2 at night -- it's hard to cook exactly for one anyway -- and use the leftovers in your sandwiches. Get good sauces and additions that don't spoil. I've seen plenty bachelor fridges where the door is full of sauces and there's nothing on the shelves. Just up that to the next level.

I appreciate the Kid Wave sentiment, but this power pop has too much power and too much pop for the morning. How about some RIP Leon Ware?
Eno Sarris
12:11
Ok!

What do you expect from Darvish this season?
Eno Sarris
12:11
Cy Young.

So this Tyler Glasnow outing doesn't matter right? right!?! Oh god he's ruined
Eno Sarris
12:11
Lots of long levers to get in the right place.

Argh! Hit "enter" too soon.
The rest of my question: H2H 20 team/8 keeper/standard categories
Trout, Goldy, Thor, Scherzer, Rizzo, Story, Stanton are easier. Now I have to choose between D.Gordon, Desmond, Lucroy, W. Contreras, or Yu for my final spot. Any help is welcomed! And again, I promise this will be the last week I ask it!
Eno Sarris
12:12
Should be Yu or Contreras. Lucroy is great but there's enough growth possible in Contreras that I take him.
Babe Lincoln

You're where?

Cubs camp.
Sterling Mallory Chris Archer
12:13
Talk to me about Trea Turner. I want to reach for him at pick 11 in a 10 team standard, but I'll be taking him over fantasy stalwarts of Miguel Cabrera, Josh Donaldson, Rizzo, etc.
Eno Sarris
12:13
Who you taking at pick ten though. I'd rather pair Turner with one of those guys. Then you get power and speed, and positional value and slugger dude.

Scale of 1-10 how concerned are you with Greinkes diminished velo? Was maxing out at 89 FB yesterday and gettin smoked. Lots of hard hit balls
Eno Sarris
12:13
7ish. Hopefully he sits over 90 next time out.

Are beer bellies real? Even if you work out?
Eno Sarris
12:14
It's just a place extra calories go. You should be fine, but do spend some time on low weight pecs to battle the boobs.
DTH
12:14
tease your Mallee piece: he have anything interesting to say about non-MLBers? Candelario, Happ, Young, etc.
Eno Sarris
12:15
Think more like my Driveline piece from last year but for hitting.
Dan
12:15
What are your thoughts on DRA, and when is it coming to Fangraphs?
Eno Sarris
12:15
It's hugely different now or just slightly? I need to read up on the changes.
El Duderino
12:16
Are the yankees the most exciting team to watch in Spring? Seriously, all the kids are hitting well, and every pitcher they throw out there is mid 90's plus it seems!
Eno Sarris
12:16
I like that team a lot. I'm a bit worried that some of the mid 90s fastballs are low spin, but I like Green and they have enough quantity that if just a couple of them pop, they'll be really good as soon as this year.
Sandy Ravage
12:16
AL only auction. Really want Trout but custom league value generators are little help. How high should I go? $45? $55? $65?!?!
Eno Sarris
12:17
I'd stop around $45. I'd throw him before Altuve and if you don't get Trout, go to $45 on Altuve.
Tim
12:17
Are you on a first name basis with Joey Votto now? Feels like you've done 3 or 4 stories on him. Can you give us a "chat only" anecdote you found interesting about him?
Eno Sarris
12:18
He's really funny and really cocky but not in a way that puts me off. Asked him about lineup protection and he said he's never seen a difference in pitches he gets depending on who's behind him, just who's in front of him. "Who's going to protect me anyway, Babe Ruth?"
Matt
12:18
Mac Williamson has options and so Jarrett Parker is favored to get the LF job out of ST. That aside, who would you rather see the Giants roll with every day, assuming they don't platoon the two (Sabean has said they won't)?
Eno Sarris
12:19
I think Mac is the better overall hitter. I know he's right-handed but that team has good lefties. I'd rather Mac.
Rich
12:19
What are your thoughts on not going after an acebut instead getting 4 in the top 40 range - (like Quintana, Cole, Duffy, A. Sanchez)? Is this viable or is that one ace necessary to finish near the top in Pitching?
Eno Sarris
12:19
I see a tier that ends around 32 so whatever you can do to get as many as you can in top 32, yes.
Rusney Castillo
12:19
'member me! i was supposed to be really good
Eno Sarris
12:19
I did the weirdest thing with Rusney. I felt he would bust, but I collected shares in fantasy just in case I was wrong. So I was wrong twice or something.

Neil Ramirez looks pretty good so far in Spring, and his velo is apparently back to 2014 levels, a legit MR option for the Giants?
Eno Sarris
12:20
He's very good when right. They got the find they needed.
Moltar
12:20
Do you think Fulmer has more growth potential or is he what he is? I kept him at the min over a market-rate Lester and now I'm having some regrets since Les is by far the best pitcher not kept.
Eno Sarris
12:20
Nope I would have done what you did. Fulmer can absolutely get more Ks if he goes back to the slider more after falling in love with his change.

That's a lot of love for Bregman after Tony Blengino made him sound like a lucky Jarrod Dyson.
