A ton in common with Billy Hamilton. Can't believe they got two of him.

Bruce Maxwell..have you liked what you have seen from him? +/- drs guy?
Eno Sarris
1:47
Good framer, talked to him this week. Comes to park thinking about catching first. But got more aggressive recently and added some power to good patience. Watch this space.
Josh

With all of the publicly-available PitchFX data, how far are we from getting pitcher and pitch comps? Or am I just missing them? Seems like, between release locations, velo, break information, etc., it should not be hard to say "Joe's stuff is similar to Bob" or "Joe tweaked his slider in the offseason and now it's like Bob's."
Eno Sarris
1:47
Sullivan and I do those a lot in our pieces.
Rasta

Is Matt Harvey a sell high or hold?
Eno Sarris
1:48
Sell high. Velo not back and filling up the zone might lead to more homers and hard contact at 93.

Nomar Mazara's had a nice start. Do you think the power spike is legit? If it is, that would make him a top-____ mixed league OF?
Eno Sarris
1:48
I crush on that guy. Gonna hit .300/30 soon. Not sure if this year, but that has to be a top 30 type OF.

do MLB players like craft beer?
Eno Sarris
1:49
A few. Plouffe. Knebel. Morrow.

When discussing plate discipline which numbers are better/more consistent year-to-year: Standard or PitchFX?
Eno Sarris
1:49
I use PitchFX

it has not been cold here in denver.
Eno Sarris
1:50
It was a guess, and i did mean colder than later in the year! Their pitching is also better than usual.
Doug
1:50
If a fastball goes from 10 inches of vertical movement to 8 inches (per Brooks) is that adding more or less movement?
Eno Sarris
1:50
Less ride, so not great for a four-seamer. But you'll have to compare to some other people on his team because movement numbers are off right now.
Barry
1:50
To further your Eickhoff take, he a slightly better version of Shoemaker given NL or you still take Shoe?
Eno Sarris
1:50
Rather Eickhoff.
LA Blue
1:51
Anything to Yonder Alonso putting the ball in the air more and maybe breaking out?
Eno Sarris
1:51
Yes, told me he was going to do it, did it, is doing it. I think most of his numbers are sustainable right now, though his BABiP may come down a bit at his launch angle.
Rasta

JMont is in your top __is SP's right now

I've seen Pineda throw a great changeup before with darting movement. Believe it was his 17 SO (?) game against the O's last year. Or did I dream that?
Eno Sarris
1:52
It flashes plus plus. It lives minus.
JR
1:52
What are the greatest causes of a top pitching prospect never developing into a starter and ending up in the pen? Lack of a 3rd pitch to get opposite handed batters out? Lack of command? Lack of endurance/stamina?
Eno Sarris
1:52
3rd pitch, then command, then stamina.

Ozuna-- Breakout or bubble?
Eno Sarris
1:52
Healthy. Breakout.

Someone just offered me Fransisco Lindor, Eric Thames and Matt Harvey for Noah Syndergaard and Familia. Is he seeing something I'm not? Seems like a ludicrous overpay or a troll. Mets are atrocious so I don't watch them.
Eno Sarris
1:53
Thor best in deal and he thinks he's selling real high on Thames, but even though I said sell Harvey I might take this deal if you have a decent #2 starter.
Jason
1:54
Sorry just catching up, and my jaw dropped on the Thames is now valued at Yelich levels.
Eno Sarris
1:54
Thames' projections always had him super high, and his rest of season projections haven't actually moved that hard from what they were.
Pat
1:54
How do I make sense of the new movement numbers
Eno Sarris
1:55
I don't know. I was trying to compare pitches off the fastball, but apparently that's not foolproof. I guess I'd compare them to other pitchers on the same team.
1:56
I was here for this! I sent my wife a drunken video text of it and she didn't love it.
John Stamos

I want man-buttered everything
