Aaron Judge hits an awful lot of grounders
Eno Sarris
12:15
He does. Should be good for his BABIP but not great for his overall production long term? I bet he hits more fly balls over time.

It hasn't been a terribly encouraging start by Giancarlo Stanton, but look at his numbers, his O-Swing% is down, his Z-Swing% is up, and his overall contact % is running at a career high. Do you see reasons to be optimistic about him going forward?
Eno Sarris
12:16
Yes! He's healthy and doing what he normally does and those things you mention offer the possibility he hits .265+ this year.

Very timely on on your Robbie Ray piece… Went to the Nats game last night, Ray was pretty awesome, too bad his def and off let him down… my seats were right by the visitor bullpen… did you know Robbie Ray grunts when he pitches? like Monica Seles level grunts… not sure I remember hearing that from other guys warming up… is that common? Stadium was pretty quit last night, might that distract the hitter?
Eno Sarris
12:17
Rich Hill grunts and cusses. There are a few of them out there.

Trevor Cahill - Ks sustainable?
Eno Sarris
12:17
Tons of curves! Decent package, considering he never really had a good breaking ball before.
Big Tuna

What do you make of Morton's start last night?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Guess it is good news that lefties aren't smashing him. He's probably a pickup in all leagues? At least low 70s/high 60s rank.

Dylan Bundy's k% isn't great but the past two years he is running insane iffb% of 19%. I can't imagine this is sustainable, but can his iffb% keep him effective while his k% is so low?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Worked for Chen. Velo was up to normal levels for the year last game, but not compared to last year. Still an injury risk.
Boo Jays
12:19
Think Tommy Kahnle could be the real deal for the White Sox or will the league figure him out?
Eno Sarris
12:20
I had his changeup as a top fifteen pitch by movement and velocity last year.
12:21
It's always been about command for him, so that could go, but otherwise I believe in him and with the Jones news, Kahnle is a decent saves spec pickup.

How much control does a pitcher have over his LOB%? Are some pitchers better at getting out of jams than others?
Eno Sarris
12:22
Not traditionally thought of as a skill, but the Giants have had some success using a philosophy of "a walk is better than a home run so I won't give in with runners on."
Big Tuna
12:22
Zobrist is worrying me. Should I be worried?
Eno Sarris
12:23
Dude about to turn 36. I think he'll finish the year with a .250 average and 11-12 homers. OBP leagues, still an asset.
Bob
12:24
Do you think Maddon will stick with the Contreras/Montero platoon all season?
Eno Sarris
12:25
It's possible Contreras is hurt. His rolling exit velo is almost down to a nadir: https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/player?player_id=575929&pos=2&player_ty...

What to make of Berrios maybe (but probably not) coming up in the near future? He's obvious not as bad as his major league numbers late last year, but seen anything to suggest he's made the appropriate change(s)?
Eno Sarris
12:26
I've seen some mechanical changes. I think it's possible he unlocks it this year, and in some leagues, he's the best upside pickup on the wire. And Gibson about to pitch his way out of the rotation.
Tom
12:27
Thoughts on Aaron Nola? Would you trade Gio Gonzalez right now to get an injured Nola? 12 tm h2h pts.
Eno Sarris
12:27
Man I wish you could know the results of this newest MRI, it's not good news that he's getting one.
Dave
12:28
Are you expecting Bellinger to start all season now?
Eno Sarris
12:28
Joc still has to come back, but it is interesting that Gonzo is dealing with a herniated disc. He could go on the DL and give Bellinger more time. I said Bellinger would play this year, and play a lot, but I doubt he gets 500 PA.
Bad Spot
12:28
Any update on C. Rodon? Looking like June, at the earliest. Also, need saves badly (Dyson did not work out). My Mazara + Rodon + A. Reed for His Holland + Reddick. 14tm 5x5. Thoughts?
Eno Sarris
12:29
I'd rather pick up Rosenthal or Kahnle and try to find a closer.
Big Tuna
12:29
What are your thoughts on starting pitchers who are throwing against each other in roto leagues?
Eno Sarris
12:29
I'll throw em both if they're really good!
Russell
12:29
RIP to Carlos Martinez's silver dreads extensions.
Big Tuna
12:30
I picked up Justin Wilson for spec saves in a 12tm but the guy who has K-Rod never responds to trade requests from anybody. Is Wilson worth holding onto for spec saves?
Eno Sarris
12:30
Yeah he's probably best or second best spec.
So Taguchi
12:30
Carlos Rodon's "mild" bicep issue went from 0-100 real quick. What's the deal? He's now out until June? Is he still a good stash?
Eno Sarris
12:30
He's throwing so it's not 100 now, they've just been slow-playing him.
12:31
No reason to push anything for this version of the team.
Dude
12:31
Thanks to you my pitching is in good shape. Bottom of rotation in an 11-teamer, are Severino and E. Rodriguez viable?
Eno Sarris
12:31
Yes v much. If they were both out there, I'd consider trading a pitcher for a hitter or doing a two for two where you get a droppable pitcher back.
