In leagues where this is a possible thing you would do, then yes. Not in leagues where you're dropping a Guy.

Wild idea for the all-star game. Use Dead-ball era rules and allow pitchers to modify the crap out of the ball like they use to. Just for this one game a year. Think it would be interesting?

I AM NOW APPLYING VAGISIL TO THE BALL LET US SEE HOW IT MOVES

What's Nick Castellanos' ceiling?
Eno Sarris
12:25
.280 with 25 homers, scratch defense and baserunning, probably 2.5-3 wins?
Edwin

That Preoccupations album is fantastic. What are your thoughts on Jesse Hahn? How does he rank with, say Snell, Hammel, or your boy JC Ramirez in a 12 team roto league?
Eno Sarris
12:26
Probably take Hahn over JCR because I've seen this stuff for a long time, and it's finally looking like it should.

Shohei Otani is valuable as a two-way player. Plenty of high school players were two-way and would be viable as pitchers and hitters, but they're always trained one way. If two-way players are so valuable, why not train them in both? If the answer is that it's hard to train both, what did Otani do that was different?
Eno Sarris
12:27
Ignore his coaches? It's a great skill if you don't get killed for it.

Purely looking for most saves rest of season, and I have only 20 moves for the rest of the season so I can’t do a ton of adds/drops. How would you rank these options: Glover, Doolittle, Wilson, Benoit, Norris, Nate Jones.
Eno Sarris
12:27
Doolittle Jones Wilson or Wilson Jones.

What is going on with Gsellman? Do you think his struggles will continue or will he start pitching to his fip/xfip?
Eno Sarris
12:29
Velo was down late, hope he's not hurt. Some of it is poor luck, but I'm also not sure his secondaries suggest a great strikeout rate. Still a real life 4 for me.

what happened to jose abreu's power?
Eno Sarris
12:30
Getting busted inside and it's sapped his power. Still, they'll make mistakes and he'll hit 20+ with a good average. Just not amazing like we thought. Well, amazing, because he's a major league baseball player.

Any chance TEX gets its act in order and just lets Delino leadoff everyday?
Eno Sarris
12:30
I'd try this and make Profar super util at this point, yes.

Alternate question if you hate that one, keep 2: Chris Davis, Margot, Bellinger
Eno Sarris
12:31
I love Margot and Bellinger. If you're winning now, though, you have to keep Davis. I'd keep all three further into the season and trade Davis at the deadline if you're not in it. Margot if you are.

How close to droppable is Eric Hosmer in a 12-team league? I was only expecting moderate results from him, but I haven't even gotten those.
Eno Sarris
12:34
Can still .270/16/4... man 16 deep in first base rankings has you around Carlos Santana and Trumbo, who I'd rather have. But if you have a CI slot, you really want to go 24 deep and look at... Victor Martinez and Matt Holliday? probably take Hoz but might take Holliday.
Bo
12:34
Any hope for early-season flops Greg Bird and Keon Broxton? Are both droppable in a 12-team 5x5 mixed H2H for a boring vet power-speed combo like Moreland-Dyson? Or would you hang on to the upside?
Eno Sarris
12:35
Actually for Bird I think so. He's walking, K-ing, swinging and reaching like he always has, and he's hitting fly balls like he always has. Broxton always had such a small chance because of that K rate.

ENO! I took a trip out to Trillium the other day and walked out with too much beer, which isn't a problem, I just don't have enough room in the fridge! Super impressed with their Cutting Tiles and American Soak so far
Eno Sarris
12:36
True story, told my wife I'll catch up to you and the boys at the train, lemme jump in here and buy some Trillium, showed up, they'd been waiting forever, I was sweating, huge box, she looks at me, disdainfully says, let's call an uber.

Will Alex Cobb put it together to the point where he can be traded for more than an interesting A-baller come the deadline?
Eno Sarris
12:37
He says he's still searching for the feel on that change, and that it will come. It's kind of amazing that it disappeared, you'd think it could come back.
Moltar
12:38
So I'm trying to convince myself that it's early and the sky isn't falling in Flushing, but, the sky is falling, right? Hitters can't hit, defense sure as hell can't defend, bullpen has been overworked and now with Thor going down, the entire rotation is a major headache. Any signs for optimism other than that it's still somehow April?
Eno Sarris
12:38
Fourth-worst offense, and that's with Jay Bruceing. Pitching still a strength, but Rafael Montero starting Saturday for Thor. Sigh.

Have you seen anything indicating that Eflin becomes more than a fringe starter?
Eno Sarris
12:39
No Ks.

How does it feel to be the hottest FG staffer?
Eno Sarris
12:40
No way. Jeff Sullivan is great looking.

Exit Velo King.
Eric

Too soon to cut bait on Maeda in a 12-teamer?
Eno Sarris
12:40
Pitching mix problems I think. Too many four-seamers.

Is my new swing legit? The flyballs certainly make it seem so!
