is it considered bad to spend a significant amount of faab on someone and find out nobody else tried for the player
Eno Sarris
12:53
Man that happens to me and it's like internet crickets. Whatever, though, you got your player. Hold him tight.

it was glorious, and short.

Here's my recommendation for a killer sandoozle: Split baguette with a spread of garlic confit on one side, goat cheese on the other. Honey-roasted beets, roasted red peppers, arugula, perhaps a sprig of thyme.
Eno Sarris
12:54
I should roast some vegetables next week to have that ready.

Perdomo has increased his splitter usage the last couple times out. How much more intriguing is he with that mix?
Eno Sarris
12:54
Way more. Needs something other than the super sinker.
Amir of Cutter

Does Amir Garrett have a cutter so I can complete my timely pun

Eno! What's your take on Wacha? He had three bad starts in a row, but his stats look pretty good otherwise this year. Paul Sporer believes in him. Do you?
Eno Sarris
12:55
I do. Velo came back. Cutter a little more like a slider recently but definitely not morphing into his curve.

Do Mets have to consider a sale? Not necessarily Degrom or anybody like that, but Duda, Reed, Walker, Blevins, Bruce are all FA and could bring back some useful B- and C-prospects...
Eno Sarris
12:55
totally. Hopefully someone will finally come for Bruce. Reed should actually be in some demand.
I like Duda but there aren't a lot of holes for 1Bs to fill.
Danny Salazar
12:56
Am I going to get back to who I am?
Eno Sarris
12:57
He's never going to be as good as his K-BB, I think. I do think he can get back to being useful, and it might just be a tweak away.

I recently presented your article to my league as a way to campaign for more DL spots (we have 3). Most owners were with me, but two guys in my league are adamantly against it. Their rational is that it adds more strategy to the game deciding whether or not to keep or cut players, and also that teams should be able to suck it up. Do I just wait for these guys to have their own DL issues, or how do I convince them? I should mention we are a dynasty league and looking to change the rule for next year.
Eno Sarris
12:57
Oh if it's about next year, they should have already lost. You only need 100% for in-season rule changes, IMO.

Is my sweet baby boy Cutch back?
Eno Sarris
12:58
I always thought the eulogies were premature. Dude has above-average patience, contact, power, and corner outfield defense.

Weaver is hurt unfortunately
Eno Sarris
12:58
Dammit.

Re: Juiced balls - Has anyone compared the ISO's or exit velocities of hitters moving between AAA and the majors since AAA are presumably not juiced?
Eno Sarris
12:59
Yes, look at the first Arthur/Lindbergh piece on 538. They paired players in the minors and in the majors (pitcher/hitter) and the hitter hit the ball harder and further and for more homers in the major leagues. Same hitter, same pitcher.

New hops on the scene: Faria, Miranda and Montgomery. How would you classify those three?
Eno Sarris
12:59
Faria biggest ceiling based on velo and nasty ass pitches. Montgomery highest floor. Miranda super meh.

How do you determine the content of your articles? Is it as simple as, "Hmmmm...X player is doing something new and interesting he's never done in his career before... let me dig deeper." Or is it more like, "Eno, I want that piece on Dozier and Grossman by the end of this week." - Dave

Looks like we'll do something on this at the Saber Seminar, by the way, me, Sullivan and Sawchick. My idea creation process is multitude. Some of it is trolling stats for an outlier, some of it is watching games, some of it is talking to players. Almost never assigned something.

getting old means taking pills to treat side effects from other pills
Why am I not feeling it?
1:01
I won concert festival tickets and have a 3 day weekend starting tomorrow but can't make myself want to go. Love live music. What gives here, Eno? Tom Petty, Steve Miller Band..r&r HOF bands, man!
Eno Sarris
1:02
This is also getting old. change something up, like your mindset (what's the worst that will happen?), the plan (I'll just go for these two bands and leave early if I'm still not feeling it), or the companion (though that one might be tough).

What do you thing Oakland will be asking for Yonder?
Eno Sarris
1:02
I bet they sign him. What team really needs a 1B?
Brett
1:03
If an Innings Eater were any good, he would be a called a good pitcher.

Eno - have you seen the Alesmith .394 cups at Petco this year? Mendoza line and everything.
Eno Sarris
1:03
Awesome.

2 excellent defensive plays last night aside, the Panda has been a dumpster fire at 3B and the plate. When do we see Devers in Fenway? Does Panda get cut? No way to trade that salary right?
Eno Sarris
1:04
Man they recently said Devers has to go to Triple-A first! On my team, he's up now.

Trout says he can come back on the 7/11. Given that it was his thumb, I'd wager he's not even holding a bat until July, right?
Eno Sarris

I think Simmons had the same injury, same surgery, came back in five weeks.
