Mirror Universe Eno has a goatee, and ______?
Eno Sarris
12:29
wears a suit, and has no time for silliness.

Am I reading too much into it that Bellinger started and played half of the game last night in CF?
Eno Sarris
12:30
Not at all. I think he'll come up and play in the OF this year and is the best redraft stash in baseball.

Trevor Story's K% is up 10% from last season despite his O-Swing% being down 5%. That's hard too do.
Eno Sarris
12:30
It takes him a while to adjust to new books on him. But I've seen him do it enough that I believe he'll figure it out again.

Second Shift. Perennial. Urban Chestnutt. Schlafly.

Worry-o-meter, 1-10: Villar becoming a strikeout machine, Jose Bautista looking kinda done, Carlos Beltran looking really done
Eno Sarris
12:33
9, 6, 4. But the last one is only a four because you should only expect deep league style performance from Beltran at this point.

Is Triggs worth a stream against Seattle at home this Sunday?
Eno Sarris
12:34
Yeah I guess so. He may have some problems with lefty power hitters later but he's funky and will have success the first few times a team sees him.

Almost three weeks into the season. Who can we begin to worry about without the obligatory SSS asterisk?
Eno Sarris
12:34
Mostly worry about big contact rate changers since that's per pitch, or guys that have lost velo or movement.

Who are your favorite buy low candidates so far?
Eno Sarris
12:37
Maikel Franco, Story, Polanco, Bregman, Contreras on hitting side.
12:38
Verlander, Tanaka, Edwin Diaz, Nola, Manaea on pitching side.

Schoop or zobrist ?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Schoop.

Any concerns about what we have seen thus far with Gausman?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Abandoned the curve for some reason. Without it, ceiling is lowered.
Big Tuna

When you say you like what you see from J. Montgomery, what leagues do you think he should be rostered in?
Eno Sarris
12:39
15+

Today's sandwich: Smoked pork loin, BBQ Sauce, on a white bread roll....definitely is lacking pickles and onions. But when the wife makes it, you just keep your mouth shut and eat it.

You think if the Blue Jays end up in sell mode they'll wait for the offseason to move Donaldson anyway? Any guesses on a destination? Also, is it ee-no or eh-no? Thanks Eno!
Eno Sarris
12:41
My German family says eh-no but it's definitely eeno. eh-no sounds a bit too much like ahem a certain sexual position. Donaldson actually fairly steady value between trade deadline and offseason, not like a closer who's value is most at deadline, but with one year left I could see them moving him.

Eno, with all the talk about velocity I am surprised perceived velocity isn't discussed more. Is this because perceived velocity is more subjective, i.e.: harder to measure, or not a significant difference from velocity on performance? I think Amir Garrett is a great example of a 'sneaky' fastball, hence the question.
Eno Sarris
12:42
If Garrett gets a boost there it's not from releasing closer to the plate, which is how Perceived Velo is calculated. He's a 91 there. But he does have 'rise' which makes the ball 'jump' at a hitter.
Bone
12:42
Mesoraco, McCann, Castro or Pina as a C2?
Eno Sarris
12:43
B MCann or if it's J, Mes.

Brad Ausmus says a fan yelling "I got it!" was the cause of two fly balls dropping yesterday. Not that the Trop is that loud during weekday Rays-Tigers games, but is that believable?
Eno Sarris
12:44
Sorta lame. Players have people shouting at them all the time.

i've poked around the site and can't find an answer -- how are "Def" values calculated for historical players? Isn't all the fielding data we have for people like Babe Ruth just fielding percentage based?
Eno Sarris
12:44
Look up Total Zone. I think it's done by Total Zone, which yes uses regular fielding stats somehow.

When I lived in London, I took the train to Paris in the spring and it was that first nice day and everyone was happy and we saw the Shins with 500 people at a club and I had a monster ass cold.
Tommy

With Machado, Story, Kluber, Quintana, etc, season offically over, so looking to rebuild. Does Archer get me Kakie Bryan or do I need a sweetener?
Eno Sarris
12:45
We're talking the best prospect ever, with 80s across the board. You get that prospect.
KB

Maikel Franco- Seems like he's hitting the ball hard this season but he's got an incredibly low 3.42 degree average launch angle and a career high GB rate (54.3%). That partially explains his .136 BABIP. Are you chalking this up to small sample size or is he a guy to be concerned about??
Eno Sarris
12:46
Well that's less ideal than 10. He doesn't put a ton of loft into it. But I'll still buy a hard hitter like that.
