Without sacrificing your journalistic integrity, have you ever asked a player to play catch?
Eno Sarris
12:14
This sacrifices my integrity? Man people don't have enough fun. I've thrown the ball back and forth with Jharel Cotton a couple times, and it was glorious, and short.

Should I give up on David Dahl? We have 3 DL spots and I have Salazar, Freeman, Segura, McCullers, and Bedrosian all on the shelf too
Eno Sarris
12:14
I'd give up on Bedroisan first.

Which bird flip was more entertaining, Mr. Met or Puig?
Eno Sarris
12:15
One is an oversized cartoon baseball, I think that one. It was like Hitchcock, it opened up all avenues of dirty mascots playing blue. Then again, Dayn Perry was way ahead of us on this one http://www.fangraphs.com/not/mr-met-is-about-to-have-sex/ as is his wont.

I hate the the Dodgers and Beer but I love the DBacks and white wine. Am I insane? 75% playoff chance for the snakes.
Eno Sarris
12:17
It's a good lineup! I wish Corbin could figure something out, but you've got an ace, an intriguing young pitcher that could throw a no-hitter, and a bunch of threes otherwise. And when I drink wine, I go white because tannins give me headaches and reflux.

Have you ever incorporated sweet potatoes into a sandwich?
Eno Sarris
12:17
Yes! I did a Thanksgiving Leftover with sweet potatoes as the 'mayo', spread around sourdough with turkey and cranberry! Did another one with short ribs and sweet potatoes, but that was a bit much.
first time long time
12:18
Ozuna or Haniger in keeper league, can be kept at same price?
Eno Sarris
12:18
Ozuna.

Which Joe for ROS: Ross or Biagini?
Eno Sarris
12:18
Biagini. Way more pitches.

What do you expect of Mallex Smith over the next two months?
Eno Sarris
12:19
What he's doing now, but with a .260 batting average.

When is the last time you thought about David Nied?
Eno Sarris
12:19
man I remember pulling his rookie card from a pack and being excited...
Jimmy
12:19
At what point do you believe this is closer to what Ben Gamel is than the 0.2 WAR player he's projected to be the rest of the season?
Eno Sarris
12:20
Not yet. Not to be simplistic, but a .462 BABIP just doesn't line up with a fly ball approach, middling power, bad contact...
Big Tuna
12:20
Is Joc broken?
Eno Sarris
12:21
Maybe this year. Can't lift the ball. Definitely not out on his career though.

Jayson Stark said recently that he always gravitates toward the funniest player in the clubhouse. Who are some players that you have found t funny?
Eno Sarris
12:22
Jeff Samardzija always makes me laugh out loud. Brandon Moss and I literally slap each other while laughing. I like hanging with Sean Doolittle when he's not bummed. But here's the weirdest one: Zack Greinke is really funny. It's a weird humor, but it's real. Brandon McCarthy is just like his twitter, wry as hell.
12:23
Get yourself unitards like these

Great article on Sonny, but I found myself thinking "Except he hasn't been very good" (results-wise, yes the peripherals are decent) and wondering if this is a case where the pitcher needs to take a hard look at the fact that his approach might be holding him back (even if it is v cool). This seems like the same sort of thing with Bauer. Thoughts?
Eno Sarris
12:24
It's an interesting to think about, especially wrt the varying the movement on the fastball. Here are the starters with the most varied fastball 'action' (z-scores for x, y, velo): John Lackey
Alex Colome
Adam Wainwright
James Shields
Yu Darvish
Tim Hudson
Trevor Bauer
Tyler Chatwood
Shelby Miller
James Paxton
Tyler Anderson
Kendall Graveman
Carlos Frias
12:25
Is that a list you definitely want to be on, or is it one born of necessity, or is pitching *really* complicated?

I just want to say that I told my friend (he'll be reading this) for weeks/months to listen to run the jewels. He decided to listen the other day and loved them. But not because I'd been recommending them for months, but because "eno posted them in his chat the other day" ಠ_ಠ
Eno Sarris
12:25
It's the outcome that matters in this case, maybe.
Big Tuna
12:25
Would you sell high on Smoak?
Eno Sarris
12:25
Yes, more than Yonder.
Alex
12:25
For teams that struggle at hitting with RISP (like the pirates), would you say it is simply bad luck, or do these teams actually try to do "too much" at the plate because they feel pressure to do so and end up not being productive?
Eno Sarris
12:26
I'd want a really long sample before I believed a guy was tense in big situations.
Big Tuna
12:27
Tim Beckham seems to have great hard hit rates. Is he making good on the promise of being the 1st pick or is this fluky?
Eno Sarris
12:27
It's possible, but I'd give him a Didi Gregorious type line, or more like 2015 Beckham (.240/300/425) before I believe what he's doing now.
Nelson

Ive never been a draft guy, but I am a daft guy

Jarrod Dyson leads the Mariners in WAR. This is not a question apparently.
Rusty

Rusty here.

okay holding steady on the interludes I see.
