What was the first baseball blog that kindled your current career?
Eno Sarris
1:53
Rob Neyer's.

I started (very preliminary) looking into weekly variance in stats for players. This morning, someone wrote about streaky hitters. In a weekly league, do you think there's more value to trying to identify the least-streaky of your streaming options, or most streaky? ie try to eliminate uncertainty, or catch lightening?
Eno Sarris
1:54
Mix it up. If you have all boring guys you may not hit the heights you need in the playoffs. All streaky, and you end up with zeros at the wrong time. K% is a good way to zero in on this without too much research.

Conforto = Young MC?
Hannah Hochevar
1:55
Conforto means "With Forto"

We've been told Manny Machado has been fine with no analysis for at least a month, can we get some analysis as to why he is hitting .220 in late May?
Eno Sarris
1:55
Pop up problem he always had is a little worse than usual? Not great at recognizing pitches from the convo we had about picking up the ball.
Wes

Please tell me you saw the Heyward play last night and how horrific the call was
Eno Sarris
1:56
I still don't understand what happened.
Ricky of Sunnyvale
1:56
Is Puig who he is offensively, or is there still a strong middle of the order bat hidden in there?
Eno Sarris
1:57
I believe in Puig. Give him just singles to fill out his BABIP and he's a .280/.375/.475 guy with speed.
Cory
1:57
Clevinger or Chase Anderson?
Eno Sarris
1:58
Neither? One about to lose his job, the other just okay.
John

guerra coming off the DL in a 12 team keeper. worth dropping J. montgomery, daniel norris, cotton graveman to activate him?
Eno Sarris
1:58
I'd wait. leave him on DL for the start.
A. Reitz
1:58
Frazier more than Happ?!?! Whatever you're smoking, I will take it. Frazier is a singles hitter, albeit a darn good one.
Eno Sarris
1:59
Talking this year. I'll take Happ long term, but I see batting average regression and a crowded team hurting Happ's opportunities to play. I've also not been a huge Happ fan on the way up, but I could be wrong about that.

Coming up with baseball nicknames is not your Conforte...
Scott

Who is the next closer to get ousted?
Eno Sarris
1:59
Oh
Whit

Do you like Oakland Coliseum?
Eno Sarris
1:59
no
DB
1:59
Should Tanaka be on the bench until further notice or is a home start against OAK still a game to stick him in the lineup?
Eno Sarris
2:00
Put him in.
Sonny

First week or so of May Cubs sat Addi for a 'Shoulder' that was bothering him. Pretty clean line from shoulder through the last few weeks. Shoulder injuries suck
Eno Sarris
2:00
Correa's production has had similar ups and downs due to injury.
David
2:00
Can you talk about what you see from Daniel Norris. I keep wanting to drop him and then nights like last night he pushed through and looked good for a stretch.
Eno Sarris
2:01
Elite movement and velocities on his pitches, minus command, I think sequencing is his way out. I'll buy in keepers, hold in deep leagues.
John Olerud

This year more than ever I've become a little disenchanted with a lot of fantasy advice, having to work harder to force myself to practice patience to oppose lots of advice that suggests otherwise. Not you in particular, just a general observation. I feel more than ever that there's been an increased tendency to crown the latest arrival as the must-get guy (Bellinger, Happ, etc.) and to write off the old slumping veteran, even though the latter options are verging on a 30% strikeout rate that seems to predict a certain oncoming slump while many of the older guys don't show major differences in their numbers year to year and likely are just in a slump that will correct itself. Again, just an observation, but do you think impatience is becoming more epidemic than ever?
Eno Sarris
2:02
i've been one of the most patient, perhaps to my detriment. The hope with the new stats is that we're cutting that wait time down, and when everyone is working with similar stats, like in the MLB, it's the one that can make decisions on smaller samples that can reap the reward
Maverik312

Also, Morton has reverse splits right now. Lefties aren't hitting him, FWIW
Eno Sarris
2:03
I did see that and I don't know what it means for him long term. I wouldn't read too much into reverse splits. Like they don't really exist for batters. But for a pitcher, it's possible.

are you marathon-chatting, Eno? I can get pretty lude-y if you want
Eno Sarris

Man I need to go! Work to do! Thanks for hanging out!
