Dad admission: didn't even know they made Viet Cong change their name didn't even know they had a new album.

I like some of the new tunes like this one. Oh, and we had a beer with them over at October https://oct.co/articles/having-beer-preoccupations

Is Bundy for real? Any concerns with the velo?
Eno Sarris
12:03
I am concerned with him. I'd be shopping pretty hard. First, there's the injury concern. Then there's a two mph dip in the last start, two mph off from last year. Velocity drop is the biggest indicator of injury.

Dude always shows up when I try to quantify managers, in a bad way.

Are you getting worried about Dansby Swanson? Seems to be a solid amount of bad luck but golly at some point you gotta start hitting.
Eno Sarris
12:05
In terms of strikeouts he's not too far off his normal work, the d is still good. He's swinging less and reaching less, and those are the most meaningful stats. They're throwing him a lot of hard stuff and almost no soft stuff, and he has to adjust. I think he will.

14 team: Tim Anderson or Gregorius ROS? Drop any of Anderson/Bell/Renfroe for the likes of Schebler?
Eno Sarris
12:07
I like Tim Anderson in deep leagues where his defense will keep him on the field, but .250/10/15 is not super sexy. I think Didi can .270/15/5, which is a little better. Schebler hits the ball hard, I think he can be a Duvall type with a little more patience. I'd pick him up.

Harper already ar 2.1 WAR. Chances he eclipses 10 this season?
Eno Sarris
12:07
I thought he'd have a huge season this year, with his health issues ironed out.

Are you concerned with Hamels' lack of strikeouts?
Eno Sarris
12:08
Swinging strikes are gone, velocity down a tick... a little bit, yes.

Where is Bregman's power? What can we reasonable expect from him the rest of the way?
Eno Sarris
12:10
His GB/FB is totally flipped from the numbers that gave him so much power last year. That's no bueno. He did cut the Ks like I hoped, but where have the fly balls gone? Gonna have to revise those power estimates down.

Is Jurrickson Profar ever going to be anything?
Eno Sarris
12:10
Nearly 700 plate appearances with a .100 ISO. Plate discipline and contact are okay, but without any power he's just a utility guy.

As a fervent Jharel Cotton believer, are you at all worried by the slow start (high WHIP) or is now a buy low opportunity?
Eno Sarris
12:12
I'm worried more by his lack of swinging strikes and Ks. I think he's a dynasty acquire, because that's a nice changeup and the cutter and fastball are good, but not necessarily a 12-14 team pickup.

I know he'll probably fall back to earth, but what's the player comp for JC Ramirez's ideal outcome?
Eno Sarris
12:13
I keep thinking about how Danny Duffy started throwing the two-seam more towards the middle of the zone and the whole package hummed better. I know he's right-handed and his secondaries aren't maybe as good, but Ramirez is a bad command guy with interesting stuff.

If you had to choose a current baseball player to be a part time writer for fangraphs, who would it be and why is it Joey Votto?
Eno Sarris
12:15
I think it could be Sam Fuld, who has a degree in economics and has actually done research (is fouling balls off a skill).

How was that Fat Head IPA?
Eno Sarris
12:15
I love Head Hunter, the JuJu was a little old when I got it, and the Red was basically Blazing World or Nugget Nectar. Very good stuff.
Ham Sandwich
12:16
Does Votto continue with this new approach year round?
Eno Sarris
12:17
No, he's always good for a strange month. One year he pulled everything. Maybe he's trying to lift the ball more, but I doubt he deviates this much from his normal approach all year.

Enjoyed reading about JC Ramirez. Where would you slot him among his AL peers?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Ahead of Nate Karns, around Trevor Bauer.
Erik

My DL is full of better players, and Koda Glover just went down with an injury. Would you hold onto him, or drop him for a similar but uninjured reliever like Nate Jones, Trevor Rosenthal, Sean Doolittle, or Ryan Madson? Or even someone more speculative like Joe Jimenez or Jacob Barnes?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Doolittle, Rosenthal. There are too many DL guys in this life to hold on to all of them.

samardzija's ERA and FIP are saying one thing, his xFIP says another. Who is right?
Eno Sarris
12:20
I like doing the slider more than the cutter. I want to see a non-COL start with that mix.
JJP
12:21
How long do you think Bellinger will be up?
Eno Sarris
12:22
See I like Toles and Joc and Puig. When they're all healthy, there's not a great spot for Cody. I think he goes back down.

Is Avisail Garcia for real? He's not going to carry an OPS north of 1.000 all year, but he's looked better than I've ever seen him.
Eno Sarris
12:23
Finally put more loft in the swing and added more exit velo. I'll give him .275/.325/.450 going forward? 20 homers?

Do you think Berrios gets called up when the Twins need a 5th starter on May 8th? Is he worth stashing now?
