Randall Delgado. Nobody's talking about him yet, but he's been starting, and the results, and quick check of K-BB%, SwStr, and Velo all look good. I look at the movements and the change is not great but it's at least different than his 4-seam. Also seems to possibly have a 2nd changeup with 4-seam movement which is weird, pitch f/x thinks its a slider. He's started before a long time ago. I guess the whiffs have always been there but the command has never. What's your take?

He's always showed up as a guy with multiple good pitches, Rise on 4s makes the change better than it seems, good slider, yeah minus command. I think he could be a sneaky good deep league pickup. Even his projections are pretty good.

Samardzija in May: 40 IP, 49 K, 1 BB. That's... impressive. Damn .355 BABIP.

Dan Straily, JC Ramirez, can they keep up what they are doing?
Eno Sarris

Some regression, totally different guys, but ownable in all leagues by now.

I have 3 kids and live in a Southern city with low cost-of-living. If we were pals, would you talk me out of trying to move to the Bay Area?
Eno Sarris

I have two kids and before this lived in SF, NYC, London... so I guess I shouldn't complain about cost of living. I've *loved* the places I've lived recently, though, and the ability to see amazing natural, historical, and educational sights, and I've loved them more than the places across the south I used to live. No disrespect meant to Atlanta, Mountain City, Vero Beach, or Ft. Lauderdale.

do you realize you now have the best life? Before it was late 90's Howie Long, with teri hatcher as his wife, the Long brothers as his sons, Fox NFL sunday job, and a raider legend. Now you get to trade, taste, and write about beer, and eat sleep and crap baseball, with a great family and live in the best town! love your work man...you are an inspiration to every man

Related to last question, but Howie was paid better lol. Life is good though, and thanks for hanging out here.

What the hell is going on with Matt Bush? Has heat and hot slider but stopped K'ing fools
Eno Sarris

I'm not worried about Matt Bush from a baseball perspective.

There is a food truck outside of our office that sells a wrap that weighs 1lb and is crispy buffalo chicken, mac n cheese, and fritos

Shoo it away, tell him please, I want to drink beer tonight, please send the hummus truck over.

how does a pitcher like Cobb lose the feel for a pitch? Is it just because of TJ? Just needs more reps at it? Does it come back and then if he combines it with his new nasty curve will he be legit again?
Eno Sarris
1:03
I don't think the release on it is the same. Maybe he doesn't trust to let his arm go like he used to? Or maybe the ligament itself is not allowing the same movement? It's weird, but that pitch is still not back. I'm going to go back to trying to sell him again, shhh don't tell anyone this time.

My wife doesn't like beer. Any beer types that don't taste like beer? Unfortunately, she doesn't like sour things either.
Eno Sarris
1:04
Sorta screwed. Have you tried a saison? It's a little different.

Is there a StatCast metric for spin off the bat? Shouldn't there be?? I think it'd be useful
Eno Sarris
1:04
There is and we don't get it. The players have shown me that they get some batted ball spin information.

Sporer has Tijuan Walker ranked 37th in his SP update. I have a chance to acquire him at the cost of Bush and Ramos - both of which are expendable in my 14tm points lg dynasty. First - do you agree with his ranking? And second - is this possibly too much for Walker, even if both players *are* expendable?
Eno Sarris
1:06
It's a bit high for me. HIs secondaries are all pretty meh right now, he's living off the fastball, and as it warms i think he'll give up more homers.

Is Soler a sunk cost for '17?...
Eno Sarris
1:08
He is okay at recognizing pitch location, but I think breaking balls are still killing him. Look how he's seeing more breakers with every year. http://www.brooksbaseball.net/h_outcome.php?player=624585&gFilt=&&time...

So, Skoglund looked pretty good. He throws 89-91 from the left. What else does he need to have to be a solid deep league option?
Eno Sarris
1:09
I'm not in love. no pitch really stands out and he's a lefty 4s/cutter/curve guy without even the velo of a Montgomery.

For some reason I felt surprisingly overwhelmed at the bottle shop yesterday. I didn’t go in looking for anything specific and was almost paralyzed with indecision.

Would you rather have Jimmy Nelson or Derek Holland?

What do you make of Avisail? Legit breakout?
Eno Sarris
1:12
Man his launch angle is not that different from his career, and his swinging strike rate, we'd have to basing this whole thing on his new body?

Trevor Story seemingly came out of nowhere last year ... has he gone back there? Is he rosterable in 10xMixed?
Eno Sarris
1:13
He's gone too far with the launch angle thing. He's toned it down a bit since he came back, which is good.
