Still in on Chase Anderson? Looks like he's been using the cutter less.
Eno Sarris
12:16
Bet the scouting report caught up because he was more into the fastballs. I don't think he should throw a lot of fastballs. He's like a 75-80 guy.

Thoughts on JC Ramirez as the SS rate goes down but the results stay good?
Eno Sarris
12:17
Getting comfortable with the sinker, I guess. Hopefully that means he's commanding it more. He was throwing more breakers than fastballs for a long time, now it's a more conventional 50/50... I like him in that 60-70 range.

Did you ever have white guy dreads?
Eno Sarris
12:18
Never could go for it.
There's something a little weird to me about it because it's like a religious thing where I was born. And I'm not a rasta.

So... What is Eddie Butler now? Looks like he used the slider a lot.
Eno Sarris
12:20
I ... don't know. I'm not that into it as a big time slider guy trying to go for ground balls, though. Doesn't have great command. Velo is good, I'd pick up in the deepest of leagues I guess.
12:21
It's a hard change now, with some movement... small gap, I doubt it.

Do you see Knebel sticking as the closer in Milwaukee?
Eno Sarris
12:21
I like Barnes, but yes Knebel is good.

Is it time to completely write-off Jung Ho Kang, even in deep dynasty leagues?
Eno Sarris
12:21
Man I'm still holding in my deepest. He has a couple key dates coming up this year.
Asdrubal
12:22
Karns is pumping his curve in there a lot, is he pomeranzing?
Eno Sarris
12:23
I love it. It's a great curve. It's he hardest it's ever been now too. Change has been the best it's been too. Definite pickup. 50-60 rank.

A) Do you think this is a good time to sell high on Darvish? Am a little concerned about the decreased K-BB% and a possible trade to an even worse home park (NYY/COL). B) Any idea what kind of 3B I might target for such a trade? 7x7 league with OBP and 2B's for hitters and QS and HR allowed for pitchers. C) Do I need to switch to decaf?
Eno Sarris
12:23
I might only trade him in a dynasty. I think he could have Cy worthy season this year.
Asdrubal
12:24
Any sleeper prospects you're stashing in dynasty leagues?
Eno Sarris
12:25
Tyler Krieger, Forrest Wall, Jasrado Chisholm, Miguelangel Sierra, Mike Soroka, Triston McKenzie, Takahiro Norimoto. Don't at me if you think some of these are studs and not sleepers, I don't care.

Jason Vargas fell back into mediocrity last night

Is Raimel Tapia a major league starter? In Colorado?
Eno Sarris
12:25
Not big on him. Weird ass player at the plate.
Sterling Mallory Chris Archer
12:25
Thoughts on Firestone Walker's Parabola? Also, how is October doing?
Eno Sarris
12:26
Always like Parabola, super smooth. Haven't had this year's. Great! Growing slowly, events are super fun. Going to an October dinner tonight, going to announce an LA show later this month pretty soon, and I'll be there.

When Brent gets the call later this summer will he do Honey-well Honey-bad or just Honey-ok?
Eno Sarris
12:27
Honey-well I think. I guess if nobody swings and he walks the lineup, that might be a problem, but I think he can fire it near the zone. Park will help smooth out some of the command issues. Not Snellian with the command.

Eno - Got a chance to have a Cigar City Jai Alai on draft up here in NJ this past weekend. It did not disappoint.. thanks to you and Beergraphs for the recommendation!
Eno Sarris
12:27
It's a classic!
Domingo Santana
12:28
Am I now a singles hitter like Ichiro?
Eno Sarris
12:28
Still hitting too many balls on the ground, but hitting them hard. Be he hits 25 this year though.
Frank
12:29
The way the Orioles treat Hyun Soo Kim is very strange right? It's like he's still never recovered from that hitless streak in spring training last season.
Eno Sarris
12:29
It's possible that they just see his defense as really bad, which would make him a one-tool (OBP) guy.
OddBall Herrera
12:29
Alonso has gone two weeks since his last hit that wasn't a homer...sure, he changed his FB% but that home run rate seems really fluky, no?
Eno Sarris
12:29
No, I think it's the BABIP we have to worry about. Moved the launch angle so far that he shouldn't have a plus BABIP.
Joey
12:31
Verlander... Velo is up for all his pitches. But SwSt% is down and results aren't good. Is this another slow start or something more like a decline?
Eno Sarris
12:32
I think velo more steady than up if you look at Brooks. I think he'll right the walk rate and be good if not vintage.
Pikup Androppov
12:33
Any hope for Matt Moore or is he basically just a tee that can walk people at this point?
Eno Sarris
12:33
The cutter has helped his command and hurt his whiffs. I think he should dial that pitch back just a bit. Man that reminds me I never wrote up our conversation about the cutter. Not enough hours in the day.
