I agree with Eric, but I suppose quantity is a great place to come from. One or two should exceed expectations, and then a couple are what we thought they were, and a couple don't make it at all.

Eno! a lot of superstars get traded the year before their contracts are up and the haul is always pretty large despite the "lease". Are most clubs more focused on winning 1 championship while the window is open or sustaining playoff level success (a la STL) for extended periods of time
Eno Sarris
12:28
I think everyone says they're doing the extended thing, but even the extended success teams have little ups and downs. The Cards have traded guys away, for example.

How confident are you Giolito ever becomes even a league average starter?
Eno Sarris

30%

On the pod, you said you were down on Aaron Sanchez, keep him for $8 in a 10 team dynasty?
Eno Sarris
12:29
That's cheap enough to like him a lot.
Please expound

Ian Kinsler comments. Your thoughts.

I don't think they were as damning of Puerto Rico's exuberance as people made them out to be. The Americans also showed some excitement when they won. But, personally, I'll take some upbeat demonstrative emotional baseball.

My favorite moment of the WBC wasn't the Jones catch -- it was Machado's reaction afterwards. Classy. And it reminded us what baseball is all about in the first place.

I just drank a Willie Mays. Yuck, 60 year old beer is awful.

Can Conforto eventually replace Duda at 1B? Who's a better stash, Conforto or B.Park?
Eno Sarris
12:31
Conforto. I think Duda will be fine, but if not, Bruce at first and Conforto in the outfield is a better situation.

If you had to put together a fangraphs baseball team (including departed employees i.e. August and Kiley), what would it look like? Whos the best hitter, who's on the bump, who's your centerfielder?
Eno Sarris
12:33
Sullivan (crafty lefty) on the bump. August (switch-hitter with patience) atop the order. Paul Kastava (big thumper) in the middle. Dave Cameron (pop and patience) third. Eno Sarris (Hunter Pence with long hair) as spark plug second hitter. I want to play again.

Sell me on AJ Pollock. Consensus 2nd rd pick last year. How bad was that fractured elbow?
Eno Sarris
12:34
Hey it can't be that bad coming back from it, he did it before! ....

Who gets that Cubs last rotation spot? Montgomery or Anderson?
Eno Sarris
12:34
Anderson early Montgomery late.

Your Russell piece yesterday - am I biased as a fantasy owner in taking away from your talking with him that he's got pretty good awareness of his tendencies as a 23 year old and he still has a lot of ceiling left to reach?
Eno Sarris
12:35
He keeps getting better, incrementally. I think .275 with 25 homer power and a little more patience and contact is totally possible.
Eno
12:35
Is there anyway someone could sign wlaidmir balentien? Not sure what league he's in but I'd love to see him at 1st
Eno Sarris
12:35
He struck out too much last time he was in the league.

Who do you like more when considering ERA, WHIP, HLD, and K: Grant Dayton or Brad Hand? I'm thrilled with Hands 100+ K last year, but is Dayton the better play on a better team?
Eno Sarris
12:36
Dayton imo. Hand on worse team and can't put up that many innings again, I don't think.

What do you think the chances are that Robert Stephenson can figure things out and be a solid SP?
Eno Sarris
12:36
20%?
Reginald Denton III
12:37
Eno - let's take this opportunity to remind everyone that OK Computer turns 20 this year! Anyone reading this chat who's never heard it should stop whatever they're doing right now and go listen to it.

You think Yonder Alonso's altered approach leads to a significantly different and improved player?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Fans (.263/.331/.390) plus some slugging seems attainable. so .275/.335/.420? would be league average!

According to you, we may have reached peak beer bottle shop, we still have room to grow in local breweraies, but have we reached peak waiting in line for bottle releases yet?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Yes, mostly because I'm not doing that crap.
Nelson
12:40
Any spring training batting performances making you look at a guy differently
Eno Sarris
12:41
Taijuan Walker? 25 strikeouts and two walks is pretty sexy time... and I thought I was out.
Baz
12:41
Ryu looking good in Spring... top-100 SP if gets his spot back?
Eno Sarris
12:41
Yes. I'm not sure about the velocity, it was kind of up and down in the start I watched.
Moltar
12:41
I ended up with a rotation of Kershaw-Keuchel-McCullers-Fulmer-Rodon-Urias-Snell-Nova, am I right to be worried that there's too much downside in that group? Should I package a couple guys for more of a "sure thing" #2 starter or trust what I have?
