I'm creeping up on youse...

Get ready for 80% breaking ball pitchers.

Well there's Kang news! Welp, he lost the appeal. "Kang, due to the suspended sentence, can avoid jail time if he is on his best behavior over the next two years. But it’s quite possible that he won’t play baseball in the U.S. again."

say the rays are hovering around .500 come trade deadline, and they get there by doing largely what they've been doing up to this point: TTO'ing the hell out of the league, solid to above average starting pitching, and mediocre to abysmal relief pitching that costs them games. do you think they push in to get an elite-ish reliever, given the market, or do they forego this year? i can't help but get frustrated knowing that, if games ended in the 6th inning, their record would be something like 21 - 9
Eno Sarris
12:35
Maybe more likely that they try Faria or someone out of the pen and capture magic that way.

Secret Aardvark is the best hot sauce on the market
Eno Sarris
12:36
Also decent band name.

So, Luis Perdomo is looking like an unlikely Rule 5 success story. What does he look like going forward? Is he a legit mid rotation arm?
Eno Sarris
12:36
Great sinker. What else?

Who do you see closing in Seattle until Diaz is right?
Eno Sarris
12:37
Thought it would be Zych. Teams don't usually use lefties. But Pazos has great velo and K%, so it could be him. I think it'll be Diaz eventually.

Every time I hear words come out of Bill Ripkin's mouth I'm overcome with the urge to punch him in the neck. Is that wrong?
Eno Sarris
12:38
As I tell my two year old, "we don't hit people." I might make an exception for Mad Dog though.
Keith Hernandez
12:39
I have quite a few guys who have had early success that may or may not be sustainable... Duffy, Morton, Cobb, and Vargas. Who should I be looking to flip at this point while their value is relatively high?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Vargas Cobb for anything you like, Add Duffy if you get something special.
Darth V
12:39
Do you really see B Norris keeping the closer gig?
Eno Sarris
12:39
I mean, not if Bedrosian is healthy, but Bedrosian seems to have a hard time with that.

Eno Chat - it's hard to match it, much like getting hit with a hatchet

As a Freeman owner, I just want to say waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Eno Sarris
12:40
That's a decent interlude! There were bodily functions, violence, and crying, like an old an old John Woo movie.
DB
12:41
Eno! Just had my first Pliny the Elder last night, was worth the wait. How do you feel about David Phelps now that there are rumours of him moving to the rotation. Worth an add in all 12+ team mixers?
Eno Sarris
12:42
Decent buy. 65-70 type. Want to see how many changeups he throws, what his whiff rate will look like.
Paul D
12:42
Drop K-Rod in an AL-only 4x4? Zych, Joe Smith, Matt Barnes best available non-closers.
Eno Sarris
12:42
Zych or Pazos I guess.
adam
12:42
but really tho is freddie free the weirdest shaped player
Eno Sarris
12:43
Yes. "Freddie Freeman looks awkward. Freddie Freeman swings awkward. Freddie Freeman is awkward. Freddie Freeman can hit." was the first thing I ever heard a scout say about him.
daro
12:43
Bellinger a good replacement for Freeman? Im so pissed off with this injury. Price Haniger and now Freeman...
Eno Sarris
12:43
Yes, pick up Bellinger.
Top 10 in launch angle, top 15 in fly ball EV.
Dozier some nice Hanigers
12:43
Will Joc Pederson be starting everyday in August?
Eno Sarris
12:43
Never every day. Platoon player.
Bork
12:44
With two of the most level-headed pitchers, Stroman and Teheran pitching tonight, how many people get beaned tonight in the ATL-TOR game?
Eno Sarris
12:45
Hoping zero.
FreeBelt
12:45
I know you recently spent time around the Giants clubhouse. As a Belt fan and Belt Wars veteran, I find it fascinating when he becomes the scapegoat for any struggle the team is having. Have you ever spoken to him about that and if it affects him in any way?
Eno Sarris
12:45
Not about that specifically, but I do know he gets down, it's a thing you can see in his body language. That's okay, I would too.
another bad dynasty manager
12:46
I'm stashing Cotton on my bench, b/c I read somewhere he's been tipping his pitches. It's a deep keeper league (16 tms) so there isn't much available. Am I making a mistake for holding him on my bench?
Eno Sarris
12:46
I'm holding in similar situations even as I drop in shallower leagues.
Scooby

Eno, would LOVE to have you rank these SPs ROS: Lackey, Roark, Andriese, JC Ramirez, Karns, Godley. In a 12-teamer, where would you draw the line between roster-worthy and streamer? Thanks!
Eno Sarris
12:48
Lackey Roark not streamers. JC R, Karns, ZG, on the line. MA streamer type in most leagues. I know MA looks decent but I'm not starting him in Boston or New York.
