Why not get into a funk, and not one like J.J. Hardy finds himself in?
Tanaka and Hendricks
12:00
Eno...you think the arrow is pointing up on these two for ROS?
Eno Sarris
12:01
Hendricks, yes. Tanaka? Throws cement mixer sliders and now cement mixer splitters, too. Wouldn't be surprised if he's on the DL soon.

You still holding Eickhoff in a 14 tm?
Eno Sarris
12:02
I'm intrigued by the fact that he's throwing his curveball 40% of the time recently. Yes.

Who will lead baseball in HR:WAR ratio? Who will have the lowest?
Eno Sarris
12:04
Oh no, the A's have the two in the lead probably that's kind of funny. Healy and Davis... I probably would've guessed Jay Bruce or Corey Dickerson.

24-team Dynstay league. Who you got for rest of career -- Phil Hughes or Robbie Erlin?
Eno Sarris
12:05
that's a real blech sandwich but at least Erlin has a hurt elbow, not a hurt shoulder, and pitches in the NL?
OH GOD MY PITCHING IT HURTS
12:05
So my starters have all died (Duffy, Hamels, Kendricks, Shoemaker, J Gray, Fulmer). Trade my Justin Turner and Cody Allen for this Matt Carptenter and Stephen Matz? Would replace Happ at 2B. Have too many CI.
Eno Sarris
12:05
Yeah I guess so.

Desperation mode for pitching....Lugo, Gsellman, or Faria?
Eno Sarris
12:05
Faria.

Hypothesis: Bryce Harper's slumps happen when he gets bored of being disciplined. Disagree?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Maybe! I remember his funk last year started when the Cubs walked him like a thousand times.

I've been doing some stats-based writing for a while, and I'm about to get my first press credential. What's your advice for talking to players about our geeky stuff?
Eno Sarris
12:07
Just be careful about the stat words. You can literally take the word rate or ratio out of the sentence and it still works: spin, ground ball, that sort of thing. They're more comfortable with exit velo and launch angle than they where two years ago, so don't worry too much if one slips. I've begun owning it and presenting myself as a nerd and that's led to a lot of laughs.

I have a complaint about the in game experience for fans. I went to Dodgers Indians game last night and the Dodgers challenged 2 calls (both of which were overturned to the Dodgers favor). They did not show a replay in the stadium, not even after the umps overturned it and got it right. How is this better than watching at home? Watching live I thought the umps were wrong both times but it would have been nice to see a replay on the screen.
Eno Sarris
12:08
I guess the though its they don't want the stadium yelling at the umps, but in those cases, you'd rather see the review. I think it would be better to require all reviews to go up on the jumbo tron.

Thoughts on Jacob Faria? Worth a snag in 10 teamers?
Eno Sarris
12:09
Lightning in a bottle time. He's so Rays, all vertical, super riding fastball, and then a near-screwball super-pronated changeup. Sometimes he loses the plate, but he's got a real chance here.
Action Bronson
12:09
When guys throw their fastball are they going 100% or are they at like 90% to maintain some control?
Eno Sarris
12:09
Most guys sit a tick or two below their max so that they can break out the hardest stuff in certain situations.

Where does Sonny Gray end up after trade deadline?
Eno Sarris
12:10
The Yankees need a starter.
Wood

Ive been offered his Votto for my Scherzer. I need the offense bad but this would leave my team without a real #1 (14-teamer). Is it fair value?
Eno Sarris
12:10
It's fair value in theory, but in practice, a healthy ace in season (as opposed to preseason) is probably the rarest thing in baseball.
JD15
12:10
See the Schwarbomb last night???? Hammered it
Any chance that helps get him going? (Schwarber continued)
Eno Sarris
12:11
I'm a Schwarber fan. I don't think he'll ever hit .300 or anything, but bombs are coming.
Connor
12:11
People have been talking about Marcell Ozuna to the Cardinals for a while now. While I understand the need, I don't see the Cardinals lining up the pieces for that package. Any chance of this and if so, what would it take on the Cardinals side?
Eno Sarris
12:11
I mean if you throw in Luke Weaver and Harrison Bader and a piece or two more you might get close. Weaver's not hurt any more, right?
GJ
12:11
Is Addison Russell a buy low candidate for dynasty leagues?
Eno Sarris
12:12
I mean, personal problems aside, and the unease of owning a guy that may have assaulted his wife aside, yes. I like his plate discipline improvements and next year he could combine that with better power.

My dad, who started drinking long before this craft beer explosion, has always been a Coor's Light drinker. Any suggestions for something more exciting I can have him try this Father's Day weekend that's more interesting than Coor's Light but not so wild that he'll reject it?
Eno Sarris
12:13
Firestone Walker Pivo Pils? Victory Prima Pils? Saison Dupont?
