Eric Young Jr has a 1.318 OPS, why do they need Trout?

my lord that lineup

In one leap, Samardjida punched Strickland, concussed Moore and prevented Harper from more damage. And provded more laughs per .gif for me in a long time
Eno Sarris

It was majestic.

Imagine a player with the combined on-field value of Trout and Kershaw. Let's call this person Kakie Bryan. How bad of a locker room guy would Kakie need to be for a GM to NOT want this person on their team?

Bonds plus Lawrie plus Kent plus

Hi Eno -- you said that "If [Aaron Nola's] healthy, expect numbers commensurate with a fantasy number two. Any increase in velocity could push him to ace status." His velocity is up 2 ticks according to pfx! But he has a 5.06 ERA (with better peripherals). Is ace level performance coming? You promised!
Eno Sarris
12:43
Take one tick away because the way velo is measured is different now. Injuries are a thing for him, obviously, or his walk rate would be lower. I still love him.

Eno, Fulmer's ERA does not come close to matching his peripherals going back to last year. Should I be looking to sell high in redraft? In my keeper he costs $5 to keep so I'm holding for now. Make sense?
Eno Sarris
12:44
Changeup peripherals match up the most weakly with overall peripherals among any pitch type -- they don't always make for good strikeout rates. But they usually make for weak contact. I'm holding, and I"m happy.

The Yahoo dudes keep wrecking McCullers' trade value. Are you worried about him breaking down or Houston slowing down usage?
Eno Sarris
12:45
Not worried about the second. They're in it to win it, other than a ten-day stint here or there, they'll let him throw I think. The first? Will always be something to worry about with him.

Alex Gordon is hurt, right? I can't imagine any other explanation for having the worst ISO in baseball.
Eno Sarris
12:46
Look at this big drop in exit velo, that probably points to an injury. https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/player?player_id=460086&pos=7&player_ty...

Rank em in long term formats please: Sano, Judge, Conforto, Bellinger.
Eno Sarris
12:46
Like choosing between my children. I love love Conforto's all fields with power approach, so him first, Judge second, and then Bellinger by a contact rate smidgen over Sano.

Cool article about Rendon. He's the man. (Though he seems aloof from my I-don't-know-him perspective.) I've always thought he had a great looking righthanded swing.
Eno Sarris
12:47
He was actually pretty down to earth. I think Trea is struggling and didn't want to talk (used the iPad to avoid me) but Rendon put his feet up and joked. Could also be about their current stats.
Bruce

Aside from 2-3 guys including Gleybar, most Yankees are post-peak. Shouldnt they be big time buyers at the deadline?
Eno Sarris
12:48
This does not fit with my interpretation of the team, considering guys that are not on the team currently, and the youth in their rotation other than TANAK. However, they've become competitive so quickly that yeah I do think they should be buyers. If they can get a rental starter without giving up Frazier, I'd do it.
Bleh

Running low on saves, got Betances (obviously wont get them forever), Neris, Norris, and J Wilson and Britton on the DL. Should I try to swing a trade for Osuna or Oh or....?
Eno Sarris
12:49
No, just hope your DL clears up.

What is up with Matt Carpenter? Popping up like crazy. xStats says his xAVG is .234. Ouch.
Eno Sarris
12:50
Yeah he maybe needs to find some his old school, more level swing.
LeylandLand

Are you done with Maikel Franco or still holding?
Eno Sarris
12:50
Buying in keeper for sure.
JJP

How would you assess Junior Guerra's performance last night?
Eno Sarris
12:51
Glad to see so many split fingers. Still think he can be better than his projections and be a 3.75, 8 k9 guy.
Haydo
12:51
Got an offer out their for Manaea. Expect more like the last two starts or sporadic production and injuries?
Eno Sarris
12:52
I was very impressed. Instead of complaining about how soft his slider is, he's embraced it and is backfooting people like nuts, and then breaking out the FOSH change. I'd hold/buy.
Sim

I look forward to every Thursday at Noon. Thursday is Eno day!
Eno Sarris
12:52
Man I just made it to noon on the questions...

You like Devers? You liked Bellinger a lot so I picked him up. Thinking of keeper league.
Eno Sarris
12:53
Love love Devers. I think he's actually in consideration for best close prospect in minors, even with Moncada's nutso tools.
Dave
12:53
Are Morton, Cahill and/or T.Ross worth stashing in a 12-team league? Who's your favorite?
Eno Sarris
12:53
Cahill then Morton.

The Mariners have had the good fortune of being able to give a ton of pitchers looks at the MLB level that they didn't expect to see. Have you seen anything intriguing from any of them?
Eno Sarris
12:54
eh. Ariel Miranda is better than I thought, but no front end guy still. And that's the nicest I can be!
Jon
12:54
What should the Pirates do?
Eno Sarris
12:55
Hope Cutch goes nuts and becomes tradable?
