Brandon Guyer drinks smoothies with ground up crickets in them. I'm convinced he has his own exoskeleton. The chiton is what allows all those HBP

When should I be excited about a minor leaguer crushing AA pitching? June? or is the SS still S?
Eno Sarris
1:06
We now have swinging strike rate and GB/FB rate, so if there's a corresponding change in those more meaningful stats, maybe you can get a little tickled.

Trying to make sense of Conforto's batted ball profile. A lefty slugging .700 who's only pulling the ball 25% of the time. Has there been anyone else like that?

Spray hitter with power? Votto-ish?

Swing path changes and multi inning relievers are all the new rage in baseball. What's next?

High fastballs and starting the game with a LOOGY?

Do you think Kershaw and Urias will team up to take over the wall? One ball grip at a time?
Eno Sarris
1:08
Urias has a sneaky meh change, so he could learn a lot from Kershaw about throwing two breaking balls for success from the left side.
Jake

Concerned about lackey? He can't throw his cutter all the time can he
Eno Sarris

I think it's a slider, and he has been doing it forever... until he can't I guess.

what do you think about a pitcher who manipulates/adds/subtracts from one breaking ball vs. a pitcher who throws 2 truly distinct breaking pitches? how can we make sense of this with statcast/trackman data? does it create noise for ranking breaking balls when a player purposely manipulates break size and speed
Eno Sarris
1:09
Just wrote about this with respect to Ray. I think distinct pitches is preferable. Sonny Gray, Jake Arrieta and others have had success manipulating multiple breaking pitches, but I believe what Greinke said: eventually it all morphs together.
1:10
And think about being a hitter facing two very separate pitches (oops whiff) vs something that's just an inch or two further away than you thought (contact, maybe soft).

Both off to hot starts this season, but who do you expect to keep up the offensive production more this season: Chris Owings or Cesar Hernandez?
Eno Sarris
1:10
Owings had more power before he got hurt, I believe in him.
Alex
1:11
Is now a good time to try and buy on Alex Bregman? I want to but some worrying signs this may be who he is.
Eno Sarris

Not amazing exit velo, and his gb/fb went back the wrong way. I don't get it.

On a scale of 0 (Chris Carter), 5 (Trumbo) to 10 (Stanton) .... where will Judge settle in?
Eno Sarris
1:11
8 or so. Too many ground balls to be Stanton RIGHT NOW.

Who is the most fun team in baseball right now? You're right it is the Yankees.

Trevor Story- HELP!
Eno Sarris
1:15
He's still swinging and reaching less than usual, I think he's just slow to respond to different books on him.

Graveman throws a 94 mph sinker. Yet his GB rate is only 40%. Should he take a little off of it to try to induce more sink or go the Porcello way and go four seam up in the zone?
Eno Sarris
1:16
He throws it for called strikes (front door) and inside and low for swinging strikes. It's possible he has two sinkers, too, and that he's manipulating those to mix things up.

I'm going to make a hamburger casserole - layers of bun, ground beef, onions, pickles, ketchup, mustard, cheese, and more bun - all baked in the oven. Like a hot sandwich edible with fork and knife.

Is E. Suarez at 3B passable in a 12 team H2H (keeper) with Moncada stashed? I have De Grom, Darvish, Paxton, Salazar, Quintana & Ray, so could try and trade one for an upgrade.
Eno Sarris

He's cromulent.
