What Grade is Lugo's curveball?
Eno Sarris
1:36
I'd give it a 60. Maybe 70. It's high spin, but it's not as clear how important that is for a curve, and it's only 77/78, the best curves are 81+.

Do you think we'll see more pitchers throwing higher in the zone, e.g. Rich Hill, as it seems like more batters are going for an upper cut swing?
Eno Sarris
1:37
yes.

Which pitcher frustrates you the most being significantly worse than their rate stats?
Eno Sarris
1:37
Interestingly, when seen in tandem with my enjoyment answer, a guy like Danny Salazar comes to mind. I think I know why, but it's frustrating that a guy with that frigging raw stuff isn't dominating despite iffy command.

Am I crazy to think the A's are kinda interesting as a sleeper? I love the pitching depth, the bullpen could be nasty, and the offense doesn't have stars, but does have a bunch of league average players. They'd have to stay healthy in the middle infield, but if they do, 1B is the only obvious major weakspot, and if Alonso's swing changes don't work Maxwell can come up and push Vogt and Healy over.

I think it -- once again -- looks like an 81-83 win team. If they do break out, it's because Cotton and Manaea are ace-like, quickly, and Healy AND Alonso break out.

Odds that Otani is here playing by opening day 2018?
Eno Sarris
1:39
The word on the street is that he'll post, but it'll cost him money with the current system, so I dunno.

pitch clocks have been around forever in some minor leagues -- i remember in the old northern league back in the mid-90s, they had a 45 second clock that started once the ball got tossed back to the pitcher -- games were plenty competitive and entertaining

The guys at CBS keep saying DeLino has won the LF job and is leading off. DO you have reason to believe either of these are true? Seems like when Gomez get's back he'll lead off and Lino will platoon with Profar/Rua?
Eno Sarris
1:41
I hadn't heard this yet, so I don't know what to believe. Seems like he'd be the vs LHP part of a platoon, but it's not like Rua and Profar have made the decision for the team.

please explain why your team name was "Dress for More" last season I truly don't get it
Eno Sarris

I had both Ross brothers.
One of my worst!

How stupid was it to take matz and rodon as my 3rd and 4th pitcher. They already are broken.
Eno Sarris
1:41
Hold tight till they come back.

Where are you on Matt Carpenter?
Eno Sarris
1:42
Good year to trade him in fantasy, since he'll likely be a first baseman and not as sexy there. In real life? Great OBP guy with demonstrated power.

For Heater - a good chunk of The Arm was spent on Japanese pitchers
Eno Sarris
1:42
Yeah I thought Japan was better off before I read that.

Do you feel secure enough in Greg Holland to drop Ottavino for Trenien? Have Herrera and K-Rod in-house already
Eno Sarris
1:43
I'd rather have a closer than a not closer.

Blue Eyes - finally some real music
Eno Sarris
1:44
Yes that other stuff is just pots and pans banging.
THE WORST
1:44
Is there anything worse than when you click submit to add a guy that is available and you get the message that the player is now on another team?
Eno Sarris
1:44
Especially if you were just spending that extra second trying to decide which guy to drop.

Eno Sarris
1:44
Zunino.
Addictionis no laughing matter

I used to be addicted to the hokey pokey...but then I turned myself around!
Eno Sarris
1:44
Dad joke.
hodor
1:45
not a joke. do you know of any teams who dissuade their pitchers from masturbating with their pitching hand/wrist? i had forearm tightness the other day after a particularly long weekend, and thought this could be a thing. i'll hang up and listen now.
Eno Sarris
1:46
Um well no but there was that whole stop playing video games, Carlos Zambrano.

Is Zombie Dust in your top 5 craft beers?
Eno Sarris
1:47
Might have been once. Is not now. Too many great new beers.

Triple-slash for Matt Holliday this year? .270/.360/.450 sound reasonable?
