Do you think that fans are expecting more from young guys than they have in the past? If so, is it irrational and we're being colored by recent successes or is the aging curve moving to the point where we should expect more?
Eno Sarris

There's evidence that peaks are coming earlier than we thought. Might be as early as 24-25. And with velo declining from day one, you might just want to take a guy with some polish (can be a little less than Urias) and get him to bigs as quick as possible.

If Eloy Jimenez continues on his current path, what do you see being the more likely to happen? Cubs trade someone to clear room, or Cubs trade Eloy?
Eno Sarris
12:58
Cubs don't seem to want to trade young bats. More likely he takes over for someone that doesn't sign an extension?

Will Bellinger make his way into the lineup this year? Adrian Gonzalez NEVER misses games, but could he get in the lineup elsewhere or does he wait for a Adrian Gonzalez injury?
Eno Sarris
12:58
In the outfield, maybe. He's athletic enough.

My son's BABIP in 8 year old little league automatically gets a .05 boost because we called then the Rockies, right?

Could be a sour!

Is Scott Kazmir's drastic drop in velo indicative of decline?
Eno Sarris
1:00
It will *cause* the decline in results and is also a result of athletic decline.

So while playing golf recently, I helped my partner search for a ball he hit in the woods. After he couldn't find it for a few minutes I went to hit my ball. At that point he yells "Found it!" and hits a lucky shot onto the green. My question is, do I take that cheating bastards ball out of my pocket and call him a liar or do I let it go?

Uncle joke, but a great one.

I have Altherr and Roman Quinn stuck at the bottom of my roster, need to figure out whether to renew their contracts to keep them past this year, or let them expire. Do either of them make a big impact in 2017? Do either have a future as a top 50 OF?
Eno Sarris
1:01
Have a bit more hope in Quinn and steals are scarce, but I wouldn't put a bunch of money down on this one.

I feel like Carlos Gomez' strong finish last year is largely being ignored, in terms of his ADP this year. Thoughts?
Eno Sarris
1:02
I'm just worried there's an athletic decline here and he's got a game that seems a little more dependent on athleticism than most?

Is holding a after hours meeting at a place that I can drink beer ok? What if I'm getting paid a stipend rather than hourly?
Eno Sarris
1:04
Seems more okay in the case of the stipend if you ask me.

Eno - I tried a gose last year (Anderson Valley) and really did not like it. Will I find the same thing with a sour? Are they similar? Thanks!

Did you have the bitter fruit one or the blood orange. If you had the blood orange one maybe sours are not for you.

Terry Cruz (muscle man and comedian) says that getting in shape is as easy as going to the gym every day so it becomes a habit. Says that it doesn't matter what you do there in the beginning. Suggestions range from eating cupcakes in front of the treadmills or ordering pizza to the front lobby.

Well let's get it wrong one more time. Yeah in French, portmanteau literally means 'carry hat'.

You're expecting Cy Young from Darvish while all the projections are down on him? ATC has him at $8 value for my league with QS and BB. I also see him as at around a top 10 value -- Are we being too optimistic?
Eno Sarris
1:06
They're baking in injury risk, I would guess, but I think he's in the honeymoon period. Even if he gets another TJ, shouldn't be this year IMO.

Would you be shocked to see Trevor Story, Gary Sanchez or Alex Bregman as a top 20 pick next season?
Eno Sarris
1:06
Not at all.

Currently holding Bearclaw (Ramos insurance) and Capps (CL upside) for the aforementioned reasons and for their ratios. Is this a good use of roster space? 12 teamer
Eno Sarris
1:07
They're your first droppers, but going into the season, they're decent guys to have.

What do you think the average fastball velocity was in the early years of baseball? Would an average pitcher today be absolutely dominant back then?
Eno Sarris
1:08
I bet it was in the high eighties. Still way more than I can even think about hitting.
Garriman

What's the deal with Jung-Ho Kang? Will his off-field issues preclude him from being fantasy relevant?
Eno Sarris
1:09
He may get an MLB suspension, but legally, his sentence was suspended, so I doubt he misses more than 30 games, which means he can still be valuable. I don't condone his actions, just answering a question. Fantasy owners often have to look past this sort of thing if they want to win.

You said Paxton is down to 94 mph this spring. Is there any reason to think he'll build that back up toward 100 like he was last year?
