Could you see Chad Pinder being a competent CF? Is this something the A's should try?
Eno Sarris
12:39
Good idea except... maybe try/trade Semien first? Gotta take long view with that roster.

Edwin from earlier was encarnacion
Eno Sarris
12:41
Oh did I give a Diaz answer to Edwing? Park factors, a few too many ground balls... Should be hitting for better average, but may only hit 32 or so homers this year.

I want to tell people in my league to read articles on Fangraphs so they'll agree to the trades I offer. However, I don't want them to gain any long-term competitive benefits. Not really a question I guess, just wish things worked exactly the way I want them to.

A playlist of FanGraphs pieces, carefully curated to remove certain pieces .
Michael Fulmer
12:42
Chances he ends season as most valuable pitcher for the Detroit Striped Cats?
Eno Sarris
12:43
I've been a fan. Elite changeups don't always correlate well with strikeout rates in my research, but I bet they create a lot of weak contact.

Do you see a big difference in a combo of I Happ/Jansen vs. Zimmer/C Allen
Eno Sarris
12:43
Rather have the first.
Brendan

Sale's K/BB the first time through the order is 46. Is that good?
Eno Sarris
12:43
It's aight.

You starting Godley tomorrow vs. the Brewers? He didn't look so great in his last start (just 1 strikeout)
Eno Sarris
12:44
I think this is a good one to sit him and watch.
Kris
12:44
Hand hold the SD job until he becomes the Nationals closer?
Eno Sarris
12:44
There's a good other name for Nats.

Last week I asked you about Matt Boyd, and you said you liked his arm slot and had a piece coming on him, but since then I've seen no pieces and lots of bad pitching. What gives?
Eno Sarris
12:45
Usually want to write a piece on the day he pitches, so I'm guessing the schedule didn't work out. He did say that his arm slot differentiated his breaking balls better, which I see. He's also not a great fastbll guy.
Michael Bolton
12:46
How can we be lovers if we can't be friends? Also, do you like Schebel? Think he's this year's Duvall?
Eno Sarris
12:46
Yes, he's a good exit velo guy with iffy plate discipline.

Is Kershaw's slider officially "fixed" now? Seems crazy that it could be broken for months and then suddenly he got it back mid-game.
Eno Sarris
12:46
Yeah look at the movement for the last few games and the drop is back. Must have done something to it.
Matthew
12:46
Votto's line about lineup protection is the best.
Eno Sarris
12:47
Who's going to protect me? Babe Ruth?
Conforto
12:47
What are my comps? Any concern I fall off similar to last year?
Eno Sarris
12:48
He was injured last year. As for comps, MUSIC ANSWER
12:50
Seriously, power to all fields, good plate discipline, lefty who's got good D in youth at least? Like a lefty Braun?
Skinny Fielder?
Rusty

Jose Berrios throwing that 98 Kerry Wood stuff.
Eno Sarris
12:51
Something about that curve is sexy and also a bit scary, like it goes right into a bat path sometimes. I'm in, for sure, at least where it won't take a ton of resources to get him.
ChicagoCardinal

Most of the guys in my leagues have gotten too smart for the old 2-for-1. What is the best way to trade depth and get the best player back? 2-for-2 where I get the best and worst player? Expand to blockbuster status?
Eno Sarris
12:52
Two for twos can still work. A guy that you might drop that they won't.
josh

my friend threw a house party and had bud, corona, carlsberg. how should i shame him
Eno Sarris
12:52
always show up with beer going forward.
12:53
Oh good I'm at 12:12

Would you deal away an $18 Sano for a $6 Fulmer?
Eno Sarris
12:53
No, and I love Fulmer.

I'm not expecting anything close to a 5 WAR season but is Abreu closer to capturing the magic of that first year than the last few? Less strike outs, more power, best soft/hard hit ratio of his career, fly balls up while pop ups substantially down...
Eno Sarris
12:54
Yeah and the best part is that this means that he's figured out something on the inside pitch. I've seen him turn and burn some of those.
