I'm not your man but sounds plausible.

Oh god there's a fourth page and I just got to the third.

Small sample size, but do you think the Himalayas are for real, or will we be talking about entirely different mountain ranges next century?

Who would you rather have from May 1 forward, Desmond or Dahl?

Adelberto Mejia, just a guy or legit #3 potential?
Eno Sarris
1:48
Sorry: Desmond might love that BABIP boost in Colorado, might have a plus BA to go with normal power/speed. I think I take him.
1:49
Mejia: probably 4/5 but I think a starter and enough intrigue that I'm watching. I'd put him on my Lamb level: $1+ in ALO.

Yesterday's Mets game was cold and they lost a boring game in extras, but god damn if that Pat LaFrieda steak sandwich doesn't make it all worth it. Grade 80 ballpark food.

You don't have to wait in line at the Shake Shack sheeple.

Why can't Jared Miller be the guy in AZ?
Eno Sarris
1:51
Lefties get picked to be closer half as often as you'd expect given the population of lefties. I don't think they'll go with him. But he does have weird stuff and is fun to watch.

Ziggy Marley's reggae cover of Cars "Drive" is pretty solid as well... can't find it anywhere though!

How common is Cotton's method of pronating his CU? Thought a circle change was more of a 'set it and forget it' delivery
Eno Sarris
1:53
Not very common. Almost a screwball, really. More in common with Honeywell than most changeup people.

Whats this new/old velocity jargon you speak of?
Eno Sarris
1:54
Baseball switched from PITCHf/x to Trackman and all velos are up a mph or so.

Do you buy a Kiermaier offensive mini-breakout (800 OPS) or is he basically a known quantity?
Eno Sarris
1:54
Has great eyesight, great tools, I could see him tapping into that with learned skills.

There is always a closer that comes out of "nowhere" who is a top 10 guy the next season. Edwin Diaz last season is a great example. Is Raisel Iglesias that guy this year?
Eno Sarris
1:55
Iglesias isn't coming out of nowhere, that would be more like Bradley taking the AZ job and running with it (possible). I do like Iglesias, though, always have.

Wily Peralta barely threw sinkers and instead pumped high 90s four-seam gas. Seems worth mentioning.
Eno Sarris
1:55
That is a little different! Still not a lot of precedent for guys making it work with just a fastball and a slider. And that velo is not as up as it might seem.
Guest

If dropping down is good for sink but bad for changes, do guys basically have to make a choice between the 2?
Eno Sarris
1:56
Ziegler is the only submariner to throw a change, so at the extremes, yes, it is like that. Collmenter can't get any wiggle side to side because he' so over the top. In the middle, there's an ideal slot for everyone.

Do you ever worry about how your first name was such a common phrase uttered on "Entourage"?
Eno Sarris

Man I hear it everywhere. Yunno? WHAT???

Eno, haven't we gone way too far with the panics over isolated velocity readings? A guy is down a tick for a couple of outings, especially early in the reason, and 100 articles get written about his decline. I'm only slightly exaggerating. Pitchers don't throw their average fastball every time to begin with FFS.
Eno Sarris
1:57
Two games of fastball velocity = more than stable.

Are you saying that Finnegan and Rodon have comparable ceilings?
Eno Sarris
1:58
I can't imagine that Rodon doesn't throw harder but here we are, in a sea of nothingness, without mooring.

Believe in Grandal's "retooled" right-handed swing for loft? Another spring story? Opening day bombs from both sides is just cool man
Eno Sarris
1:58
Could be good. Shoulder health good too.

Fact: I enjoy hazy IPAs. Is their weakness, however, that there's not much differentiation? What's driving your ambivalence? The "fad factor?"
Eno Sarris

I'm starting to have meh ones, have had a few now, that's part of it, and I bet you get there too the more you have. And then, I had a clear Hazy Train from Fieldwork that was everything a hazy brew was, made the same way, ended up clear. And then I talked to a major brewer that said, what do you want? Soft, grassy, fruity, nice aroma, not too bitter? I can make that for you without haze.

Eno, at what point does a SP prospect know he should be a sinkerballer or solely a 4 seamer type guy? Is there significant overlap of guys who do both?
Eno Sarris
2:01
Lots of teams make you throw the 4s to get command, then add 2s later. I know Pirates do this.
