Do you have any reports on Taillon's changeup?
Eno Sarris
12:33
Still looks exactly like his sinker, with a below average velo gap. Been hit for a home run twice as much as any other pitch. Huge line drive rate. Tiny whiff rate.

do you buy the claim that MLB is making when they say if they start paying minor leaguers the minimum wage, a lot of teams will have to fold? It feels like the whole arbitration process manages to keep salaries for stars in check enough to allow everyone to eat, no?
Eno Sarris
12:35
I thought I saw something saying it would cost $4 million per team. IF it's that, then MLB could help the teams that would need help. Then again, the players got screwed out of MLBAM and that's worth three billion so maybe just maybe the owners have some money for this.

As a met fan, how pissed are you at their leadership? Seems like the window might be closing on this group if some changes aren't made
Eno Sarris
12:36
Ownership, the manager, and their work wrt communication or injury prevention seem to be all sub standard or worse.
Flores
12:37
How worried are you about Jon Lester?
Eno Sarris
12:37
Not worried. Not sure he's an ace, but 3.5/1.2+ seems totally doable.
12:38
another thing I just like. Two year old kept asking what the name of the song was yesterday.

When you're attending a MLB game as a fan, where's your favorite place in the park to sit?
Eno Sarris
12:39
If I'm not paying, behind home plate. If I'm paying, usually find a place along the first base line that gives me good bang for buck and is in the lower bowl.

Three articles this week plus 2 beer articles in April? Why do you write like you're running out of time?
Eno Sarris
12:40
I'm signed on for four articles a week, a chat, a podcast, a beer article about three times a month, will have a podcast regularly on October, and then I have to manage edit October. Believe me, I'm crazy busy.

DNorris getting hit hard and bottom 25 of Barrel FIP. Any hope?
Eno Sarris
12:42
Anyone with pitches with that much movement and good velo has hope. Good lord the movement on his pitches. I'm assuming that's what's making it hard for him to command the stuff.

This one time I went to a local brewery and they had a small batch of a beer that they had used Oak spirals in. I think they went a little to far with the oak because it was like drinking a tree....
Eno Sarris
12:43
Had a spruce gose from Grimm that gave me the same feeling.

bregman = rendon?
Eno Sarris
12:43
ooooh kinda sums up the up and downside pretty well even if they don't swing the same or anything.

Will we ever come up with a metric for bullpen management?
Eno Sarris
12:44
I put together a decent group of metrics based on the work of Lindbergh and others for my ALMOY vote last year, i think we aren't far there.

Grant Dayton is soooo terrible. Why is this?
Eno Sarris
12:47
Wow! I hadn't checked in with him for a while. Velo down, curve morphing into slider, spin rate down. Hurt?
Cool guy
12:47
So, Nick Martinez was interesting with the new pitch but then yesterday happened. Thoughts?
Eno Sarris
12:48
No out pitch. Cutter surprised people for a while and looked like an out pitch, but that pitch is rarely an out pitch.

Is Kershaw showing some signs of weakness? Significantly lower whiff rate, dingers, think he'll continue being the best pitcher in the world?
Eno Sarris
12:48
I wonder if this new-ish harder slider is not as good as the old slider with more depth.

Is Adrian Gonzalez's 0% HR/FB sustainable?

Settle an argument for me - Dansby Swanson's development will be best suited with his next 300 PAs taking place in the Major Leagues or AAA?
Eno Sarris
12:49
Major Leagues unless his confidence is shot.
12:50
Pitchers are better here, he needs to figure out better pitchers. Going back down can help people that need a boost of confidence or are changing something mechanically. I think he just needs to figure out sequencing, which is better done up here imo .

What's up with Julio Urias's command?
Eno Sarris
12:51
Throwing a ton of curveballs? I doubt he's suddenly lost it all.

Do you prefer Morton or Corbin going forward?
Eno Sarris
12:51
Morton

You know when in Big Trouble in Little China, after they get done drinking the magic from Egg Shen and they're all riding the elevator saying "feel pretty good. I'm not, uh, I'm not scared at all. I just feel kind of... feel kind of invincible."? What do you think was actually in Egg's solution? I need some, now.
