I don't know why Steamer doesn't give him positive defensive value. Also, he's probably an upgrade over Mahtook/Collins.

Need to replace one of my injured pitchers. Who should I pick up out of Santana, Chen, and Finnegan?
Eno Sarris

Finnegan
Kentavious

How good is a top 4 rotation of deGrom-Archer-Cole-Stroman in a 12 team league?

Top third.

is there a right way to drink beer?
Eno Sarris
12:14
I prefer cold and out of a glass.

any favorite food spots in oakland?
Eno Sarris
12:16
Burma Superstar is over in the Alameda near Faction brewing, that's a fun one two before the game. Or go to Drake's if you want food truck and good beer right by the game. If you just want food before the game, Tacos La Penca Azul Truck is on High street and has a burrito as long as your arm. CAm Huong has good banh mi downtown.

Thoughts on Tommy Joseph for 2017? Can I get by with him as my starting 1B in a 17-team league?
Eno Sarris
12:17
yes. He's... fine.

1) Great song, 2) I named my fantasy team "Earned Run The Jewels" which I give anyone permission to steal

Don't you dare to do a beer trade value column, Sarris. I'm watching you
Eno Sarris
12:18
Phew we almost didn't have an interlude at all.

Who are cheap middle reliever targets who will provide excellent ratios (ERA, WHIP, K/9)? I don't care if they get saves. Basically who's an unknown, cheap, poor-man's Betances?
Eno Sarris
12:18
I mean do people know a ton about Matt Bush? They do? Okay, deeper: Evan Scribner.
12:19
Vogt, Wieters, d'Arnaud, Mesaraco, with some praying for health for the last two of course.

Can I get by with an Adam Jones, B.Hamilton, & Haniger 3 OF league? I have Xander as DH & Ellsbury on bench.
Eno Sarris
12:20
Ellsbury/Haniger might work out. Don't trade Xander for an OF just yet.

I like Sour, but sours are too sour. I have had a couple sour IPA's that were a bit milder that I liked. Any recs for sours that are like half as sour as usual?
Eno Sarris
12:21
yeah try some Farmhouse IPAs. Shady Oak in California makes great ones. ToOl make some good hoppy sours you might find (Sur Citra is the best). Rodenbacher Grand Cru is also not so intense.

Headed to Charlotte area in a couple weeks. Any NC beer recommendations?
Eno Sarris
12:22
NoDa is good, and VBGB has a lot of fun stuff to do and good beer.
DB

Have some holes in OF and I need speed...would you prefer Cain or Broxton?
Eno Sarris
12:23
Since you're buying on the trade market, probably, Broxton.

Believer in Mitch Haniger? Or more objectively, Mitch Haniger >2.5 fWAR?
Eno Sarris
12:23
1.5-2.

Through 3 hours in my first Otto FGpts draft people have been REALLY overpaying for nearly everyone based on the prices the RG guys said they'd pay. If I have more money than most teams and less players should I just wait out the mid-high tier until people run out of money overspending then get good values on mid to lower tier players with upside?
Eno Sarris
12:23
No, go get at least one stud on a rental price. Inflation hits every league differently.
12:24
I don't actually look at prices in my ottoneu leagues. I find it a very intuitive process in each draft, to figure out what people need and want and what they are paying for. I don't spend a lot of time angry at the end, either.

Eno, you have good taste in sandwiches, so you're the expert; what are the top 3 fast food sandwich chains?
Eno Sarris
12:24
I'll go to a local deli with a good yelp rating before I go to a chain.

Best way to suck money from the auction pool, after nominating the obvious stars - go to the positions with the weakest remaining players? For example, 11 of the top 13 3B eligible players were kept heading into our Draft day
Eno Sarris
12:25
Sure, but Shechter has a point, too, when he says that every time you throw a player you don't want, you're giving up a chance to buy a player you do want.

Drafting this weekend. What do you make of the bullpen situations in Washington, Colorado and Pittsburgh? Who should I target or should I avoid altogether?
Eno Sarris
12:26
I'm not paying first closer prices for Glover right now, I'd rather pay flier prices on Kelley and then Treinen. Chalk in Colorado and Pitt right now.

Thoughts on Shelby Miller's Spring so far?
Eno Sarris
12:26
I'm happy the velo is back up. Happy to see the strikeouts. He's a fine final pitcher in 12/15 team leagues.

The braves have some good pitching prospects, looking at Eric's FV grades, they don't have any that project higher than a mid rotation arm. Why do I keep hearing they're going to have a rotation filled with top of the rotation starters in a few years? Where does this constant disconnect stem from?
