There are traditional stats that you should look at, not to believe in them, but to see what's not believable. Like, for example, strand rate and BABIP. If they are super extreme (100% and .188 are about as extreme as you can get, in Keuchel's case), then you don't have to get so fine with your analysis.

I read somewhere that JC Ramirez has a new curve to go along with his heat, and he’s certainly getting Ks and (at least very recent) results. Do you see him turning into anything more than a stop-gap for the Angels?
Eno Sarris

Whole piece on our site about him today. I think he could maybe 3.75, 1.25 with 8k9, that's p good.

Thoughts on Chase Anderson? Added veto, new arm slot, new approach I believe?
Eno Sarris

New pitch, too, a cutter. He'll give up more homers, but 3.5/1.25 with 8k9 seems possible for this year.

Are you ready to accept the Yankees as bonafide contenders?
Eno Sarris

I had them in the wild card on my FG predictions.

Eno - Chase Anderson, Jordan Montgomery and Michael Wacha have been pitching well - are you moving any of the three up in your rest of season rankings or is this just a little bit of a good run for each?
Eno Sarris
1:21
Chase and Jordan in the late 60s, early 70s, Wacha up past that. He's legit. Just want him to throw fewer cutters.

A little tepid on Amed Rosario because he hits for almost no power, but then we saw what happened to Lindor's 'no power' profile when he was promoted. Think there's a shot he can pull a Lindor, or are we looking at Orlando Arcia 2.0?
Eno Sarris
1:22
I think he could be Elvis Andrus (pre late 2015) and the chance for Elvis Andrus (post late 2015) is in there.

Do you think Motter can maintain near everyday ABs as a jack of all trades? And equally as important, can he keep this up?
Eno Sarris
1:23
Yes and I believe in his power, not like this kind of power, but .180ish ISO with decent Ks and versatility and speed.

What do you make of my across the board improvements? Buying?
Eno Sarris

yes

In all of your clubhouse interactions, who is the funniest player you've been around?
Eno Sarris
1:25
Stephen Vogt always makes me laugh. Jeff Samardzija, too. Joey Votto is p hilarious, doesn't mind saying things others would be afraid would hurt their brand.

Just like the idea of playing flutes and yelling at people, half naked on a lawn, with a long ass white beard, and a hot chip beat in the background

Jose Ramirez's batted ball profile is very interesting so far. Materially more fly balls, more hard contact, less soft contact, going less to the oppo field compared to last year. Have you seen anything swing/approach wise here? Is this for real?
Eno Sarris
1:27
That's the recipe everyone's trying to cook with. I'm into it.

With Arizona trying to compete this year, they can't let Rodney close, right? Do they have a guy on their current roster you like, or do you think they make a trade?
Eno Sarris
1:28
Archie. Bradley.
Merv Throneberry

Any reason to be excited by Kennys Vargas, other than the enjoyment I get saying his name?
Eno Sarris
1:29
He's been a leader in barrels! I think he hits the ball v hard. Plate discipline doesn't lead to walks but isn't terrible in terms of reaching and the like.

Eno! Have you checked out KLaw's new book (Smart Baseball)? He mentions specifically that you can't quantify command. Gauntlet thrown down!!
Eno Sarris
1:29
Got a new approach! Trying again!

Do you like Sours?
Eno Sarris

yes.

In terms of verrrrry far off dynasty lotto chips, would you prefer Luis Robert or Kakie Bryan? Thanks!

Kakie 80s everyone, including mane.

Super Heavy Cascade from Henhouse is a revelation. No hops in the boil, a crap-ton added during fermentation. All the grass and citrus with very little (if any) bitterness. One of the most original ales I've tasted in years. Henhouse is seriously on the come-up.
Eno Sarris

They are a must-taste when you see them on a lineup.

Decided to take two weeks off drinking beer just to make sure I wasn't an alcoholic. It seems I'm not, I made it, but I've discovered something I'd like to share: not drinking beer SUCKS
Eno Sarris

I put that on Monday through Wednesday, which, you know. aren't the best days anyway.

I know Healy is your boy, but how are you feeling about him so far this season?
Eno Sarris
1:32
Stepped off the plate a bit and is missing more. I'd like him to reverse that decision. I still see great gap to gap power and decent bat to ball skills, which is a great combo.

Also your opinion on Castle Danger's mosaic IPA and Surly's Todd The Axe Man. 2 of MN's best beers IMO
