If he's sitting 94, that's still top three or four velocity among lefties, and he could be 95 during season, so it's not so much the velo as it is the injury history combined with velo that make me a little nervous.

I decided to cut the cable and get the MLB streaming package. I won't be able to watch my favorite team (O's) or Nationals and Pirates. How should I approach watching baseball this season?
Eno Sarris
1:10
Pick a new team to follow? One with some young players that you can watch grow?
GERB

Best opening week matchup is Kluber vs Darvish. That wasn't a question
Eric

Chances Knebel takes the closer role?
Eno Sarris
1:11
Eventually? Very high. Specifically this year? Dunno. They'll have the vets in and then trade the vets, most likely, unless they are surprisingly good, in which case they keep the vets.

Saw Shelby Miller throw last week. He was hitting 95 and looked to be mixing in a sinker and cutter. Is he going to be good this year?
Eno Sarris
1:11
I heard he was more 94 in the shellacking that came after. I think he can 3.75/1.25 type thing.

Is it bad, Eno, that I almost miss the steroid era? Like, watching Barry Bonds hit for a 244 wRC+ and a .582 OBP sure was fun
Eno Sarris
1:12
Was so amazing.

The fastball documentary showed Walter Johnson going to a military base and pitching into their makeshift gun. He was measured at 83 mph.
Eno Sarris
1:12
There's some decent error bands on those early machines, right? So I think it's still possible that they were at 85/86/87.

When is the last time you thought about Rusty Greer?

Bonjour... please pick 2 keepers: Berrios, De Leon, Kepler Clint Frazier or Profar? Merci

De Leon Kepler

12 tm H2H points. Odor at $11 or C.Santana at $15. Auction calculator puts Odor at $20 and Santana at $26 but position scarcity at 2B make me lean towards Odor. You?
Eno Sarris
1:14
Oh sorry I didn't reply to this, I was thinking about. Instinct is definitely Odor, but the shallower the league, the less the positional value is worth. Calc has that baked in... but $11 vs $9 of surplus is close enough to go with your gut, and Odor is the younger player.

Would the Rockies become a better team if they moved out of Colorado?
Eno Sarris
1:16
Yeah, I think so. I think Coors messes with hitters on the road and every pitcher hates it. Take the park out of it, and they've got a decent 3/4/5, good 1/2/3 pitching, decent end of bullpen, and depth isn't terrible.

I recently had the La Folie Sour Brown Ale from New Belgium's Lips of Faith series. It was amazing. Similar to Rodenbach Grand Cru but maybe even better (tough call). Toughts?
Eno Sarris
1:16
yeah I think it's better. Grand Cru is just a good spot to start.
Thursdays with Eno
1:17
I got Chad Green and Ty Blach. Because you love them. You do still love them, right?
Eno Sarris
1:17
Yes, though Blach is maybe my deepest sleeper. That's just a play on the fact that I think he has decent command of a few okay pitches, a good team behind him, and will have some good matchups this year. I wouldn't start him in Coors or anything, and maybe not even Arizona.

Rusty Greer had a 4.7 oWAR in 1999. Dude is the Red Baron!
Snarfle
1:17
Yeah, Kepler. He was nifty for a bit last year. How nifty will he be this year?
Eno Sarris
1:18
I'm worried. Doesn't have a power launch angle, didn't kill the ball by exit velo, overplayed his context-neutral results, fell off in second half. Could be a .260/.330 15/15 guy, which is okay but not a star.

Tell Camden WH he can still watch the O's & Nats. I've got mlb.tv too and it allows me to watch their road games. Also, the CSR said they're working on a deal to allow home games to be watched (probably for an extra fee).
Airborne
1:18
is it okay to dislike Max Kepler based on his quote in yesterday's article opposing the air revolution in the swing
Eno Sarris
1:19
yes, because it's meaningful when put hand in hand with his own results.
Keeper Deadline
1:19
Keeper deadline is tomorrow: Please choose the best keeper set in 12 team roto: 1. Springer and Chris Davis, 2. Xander and Bregman, 3. JD and Myers? Thank you for your help!
Eno Sarris
1:19
I'd be tempted by 2. But 1. is the safest.

Best coffee porter/stout?
Eno Sarris

Speedway?

I told you so!!!

Well there go my seven years of french right out the frigging window. At least now we've figured it all out.
Turd Ferguson

Can we bring back baseball nicknames like we used to have? I can't get over that Charley Radbourne went by "Old Hoss" ...... he did throw over 600 innings in a season though
Eno Sarris
1:21
There's nobody that could carry that one these days I don't think.
Old Dudes

Since auction drafts usually seem to overvalue the hot young dudes, what are your favorite aging dudes that seem undervalued?
