Sell & Hold. Graveman could be Stroman or Sanchez at best but I'm not buying that he's quite got that Sanchez sinker and the latter, as a ceiling... might be worth exploring trade options.

Looked like Charlie "The Salt" Morton touched 96 last night with a solid curve. Were you pleased with his performance?
Eno Sarris
12:27
Averaged 95, so if that's an old 94, still great. Tons of fade and sink on that nasty sinker. Curve only got three whiffs but averaged 81/82. (I don't even know how to report velocity any more so I'm just going to do old/new.) Threw six splitters with decent velo gap and drop, got two whiffs. Really nice outing. Might have even thrown a cutter. Plus, nobody is giving you anything for him. Hold.

Is it crazy to think that Taillon could be better than Come right now? Cole is so volatile and Taillon looked great last year and even better last night.
Eno Sarris
12:29
Threw eight bad changeups, which is okay news for having actually thrown that many, but didn't get a whiff, didn't have impressive movement or drop. I dunno man. Cole has his issues of course. Also needs to trust his change (and slider!) more.
Sonny

Cotton's first 3 runs last night were results of pretty soft contact/unlucky hit placement. I still believe.
Eno Sarris
12:30
Yeah, man. Simmons took a curveball a foot-plus off the outside corner and barely put it inside the line. Maldanado fisted an inside fastball to the same line. A foot of difference, combined, on those two balls in play, and He pitches five innings of one-run ball with four or five strikeouts and two walks.
Dylan Bundy
12:30
DYLAN. BUNDY.
Eno Sarris
12:32
Good. Lord. PFx didn't pick up a cutter but I saw some fastballs in the low 90s with different movement that made the hitters think. Otherwise the changeup got a ton of whiffs with great movement, and the curve decent.
The Kyd

I love Tai Walker, but his troubles with HRs have been well documented. Will his tendency to give up bombs be too much to overcome at Chase to make him shallow 10-team worthy?
Eno Sarris
12:34
Yeah man, he improved his strikeout and walk rates this spring and still gave up homers. Seemed like the same guy as ever in his start yesterday. Maybe the NL evens out some of the Chase issues and he's about the same as he was before. I'm not sure I see a breakout coming.

Braves fan here. Someone (I think Paul) made a comment during the opening day extravaganza that choosing between th Mets and braves feed was the easiest decision ever. Last night I decided to try the Mets broadcast for the first time and it was the most unbelievable thing I've ever listened to. Gary was great Ron and Keith had the most unbelievable insight. I looove Keith's old fashioned look on the game. At one point, darling is talking about deGroms mechanics and talking about how he needs to stay balanced or else he won't be able to throw the ball straight, and Keith goes "yea, just like d'arnaud." I was dying. And then Keith starts bashing all the new rule changes and such and Gary goes "slow down Keith, we want you to stay around for a little while"
Eno Sarris
12:35
They're very good. Even when I'm annoyed with things Keith is saying, I enjoy them.
James
12:35
I know you're not a huge fan of Keuchel for various reasons but you have to be encouraged by that start right? Tons of ground balls and 85 pitches through 7IP
Eno Sarris
12:36
He threw 28% of his pitches in the zone. That's such a crazy number that I'm going to peace out and see what happens in the next start. 40% is average. Even when Keuchel led the league in fewest pitches in the zone he was above 30%. And you have to get batters to swing at those pitches outside the zone, or you are screwed.

Great Treinen call...who you like in these pens: OAK, TEX, AZ, PHI
Eno Sarris
12:38
Backwards: Neris, Bradley, Bush, Madson.
Mostly I look for high velocity high K righties that have been used in wins.

Detroit's weather for opening day tomorrow: high 30s, sleet, snow, rain, misery
Bork

The city of St. Petersburg wants to build a new ballpark on the existing site of Tropicana Field. Does this count as a lude because it's absolutely ridiculous.
Kyle

Devenski!!!!!!!!!!

FINNEGAN!!!
Eno Sarris

We can do better.
Jessi

Do you like Eickhoff in a deep NL only as much as you liked John Lamb last year?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Way more. Lamb was a dollar guy. Eickhoff is like a five-plus dollar guy in those leagues.
Hannah Hochevar
12:40
Candy is dandy, but Yandy is quicker
Pretty Tony
12:40
Jharel's pitches should be called Cotton Balls
Long John Silver

Does yer chat have a theme song? I be needin new speakers. Yarrr.
Eno Sarris
12:40
That's better.
Mikey
12:40
Archie looked really good for Az in relief. What's his future? Can he pitch this well in relief all year?
Eno Sarris
12:41
At 96 with a good breaking ball, he is the classic 'couldn't be a starter but could be a closer' guy.
Maxamuz
12:41
Hunter Pence is going to prove all you doubters wrong.
Eno Sarris
12:41
Who's doubting him? Pretty established dude.
Gary
12:41
Would it be possible to add QS as an option on leaderboards? A lot of fantasy leagues use them and would love a custom sheet including them.
Eno Sarris
12:42
They're in the auction calculator. I'll bug the powers that be to get RoS projections in that thing this year.
Nick
12:42
What's happening Eno! Thoughts on Peralta's start last night?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Same guy as ever. Plenty of ups and downs on the back of his command of that slider.
RotoLando

My contribution:
JRK
12:44
Thoughts on Ryon Healy?
Eno Sarris
12:45
Still like him as a gap to gap hitter with good bat control, adjustment-fed power that won't be in the projection systems, .280/25 type.
