Weird that his velocity is okay, and he's throwing the same pitches, but Ks are gone. I think there's still some upside there.

Christian Yelich is available. Should I drop Margot and pick him up?
Eno Sarris
1:18
yes

Isn't what the nats did the last 5 years a little underrated? Not the strongest division and terrible playoff record but they had 5 straight winning seasons and averaged 91.6 wins over that span. Rizzo doesn't have the best reputation but not many teams had such a streak the last decade. If the harper, strasburg era is over they will likely fall but by then they likely had 7 straight winning seasons averaging 92+ wins. Would be bad if it wasn't crowned by a good postseason performance but it is a long and strong competitive window.

Yes and he's done deals like the Souza deal to keep it going. I like his style.

Why an injury risk on Bundy? His velo went up last game. He's started three times against the Red Sox who are notoriously difficult to K, had great numbers when he faced Toronto
Eno Sarris
1:19
velo went up to this year's levels, which are down significantly from last year's levels. And he's a walking injury risk. Because history. Nothing predicts injury like injury in the past.

Will Vince Velasquez find any consistency?
Eno Sarris
1:20
Needs to do the Carrasco and just throw hot fire towards the middle of the zone and let movement take it to edges.

Delayed taking Desmond out of IR so I wouldn't have to cut somebody, but with thursday waivers coming up I need to decide today. Drop Mazara? Drop my most superfluous starter or reliever (Vargas and BNorris, respectively)?
Eno Sarris
1:20
Vargas.

I need to see Bartolo Colon use his throwing momentum to execute a perfect cartwheel. I need it, Eno.

Hello. Can you help me think about the differences between curve, spike curve, and knuckle curve? Is it just a comfort thing with the grip or are there actual differences in the movement profiles?
Eno Sarris
1:21
I lump em together, I don't think there's that much difference. Knuckles might be a little harder because you can throw them like a fastball and let the grip eat but it's not a huge effect.

Better ROS: Danny Duffy or Danny Salazar?
Eno Sarris

Salazar.

I asked this question in a comment section: What warrants a longer suspension, Head Hunting or PEDS? Do you have any thoughts you wouldn't mind sharing?
Eno Sarris
1:22
PEDs for sure because I think we ascribe intent to high and tight pitches that get away from the pitcher too often.
Spec
1:22
Who are the best spec saves guy (not on teams with Committees)? J. Wilson, JJ Hoover.
Eno Sarris
1:24
Wilson, Bradley, Rosenthal, Capps, Kahnle, Hoover, Treinen.

Five year old got into this over the weekend, listened to it on repeat and loved the story, re-told the story to me a few times.

Any beer recommendations in Dallas, Austin or San Antonio?
Eno Sarris
1:27
Jester King in Austin is a must, Deep Ellum and Peticolas in Dallas... Freetail in SA?

When you get questions about specific players, do you do a quick scan of his Fangraphs page to come up with an answer? Or did you already recognize that Contreras' rolling exit velocity was down the drain?
Eno Sarris
1:27
I do a few key searches. Sometimes I just emote.
E

Does Joey Votto just get bored playing for the Reds so he just like, tries different things?
Eno Sarris
1:28
Or he likes setting up the second half of the season by acting a certain way. Like he can see what advance scouts are telling their pitchers on the other team.

Clint Frazier's recent hot streak, any substantial changes?
Eno Sarris
1:29
Interesting! Best swinging strike rate of his career so far. I bet he'll be like Addison Russell, where he has to get a couple tries at the league before he breaks out.

How much lude would a Ludacris if Luda could lude ludes?

I'm a climber in Denver and appreciated your piece today on recovery living at altitude. You mention the importance of sleep and nutrition. Do you know if the Rockies use supplementary oxygen to combat hypobaric hypoxia? Thanks.
Eno Sarris
1:30
None of the players mentioned that, all I got was that trainer saying he had breathing exercises. I even asked them about sleeping in chambers haha.

Pomeranz seems to have problems third time through the lineup, maybe fatigue. Would it be better to transition him to multi-inning relief ace or do the RS need to justify trading Espinosa for him at least through this year?
Eno Sarris
1:31
Not till the playoffs.

I’ve been eating healthy for approximately 48 hours now, I feel terrible.
Eno Sarris

inoright I had a salad two straight nights and I want to house a burger with a pizza stuffed inside it.

What's your opinion on Finnegan long term? Think the changes he made last year in the 2nd half and early this year are for real?
Eno Sarris
1:32
I do but what's this injury about.
Joe
1:32
Who do you think hits more home runs this year, Sano or Judge?
Eno Sarris
1:33
Going forward, maybe Sano, hits way more fly balls. But Judge has five on him.
