40% of season in the rearview - if your pitching ratios are totally borked, what's the best approach? A) Screw it, steer into the skid and add more SPs to rack up Ks and Ws; B) drop all but best SPs for high K%/low ratio MRs; C) something else?

Pick a salvageable category or two and go for it there.

Eno! I saw you Tweet about an event around your Chicago trip. Any option for locals who want to go to the games and all the such but have no need for a hotel (which I assume is a pretty large portion of the cost)?

There might be a brunch Pitch Talks before a game that Saturday!

I can't wait to move so that I'm not sharing my office with the cats. one just took the nastiest crap. smells so bad.

Eno who is Jorge Bonifacio? Sortables don't know him. How is he doing it?
Eno Sarris
1:08
I think what he's doing now is really sustainable! It's not the type of production we're all looking for -- .260/25-30 types are everywhere -- but he's hitting the ball hard!
Entrance Velocity

Has anyone ever had a higher entrance velocity than Cosmo Kramer?

save spec-ing: who closes in florida if ramos is traded? do you like soria? doolittle? hand? vizcaino? anyone else?
Eno Sarris
1:10
Trade spec'ing is Kahnle, Phelps, maybe Bedrosian Parker, but they third. Job loss specing, I still like Rosenthal a ton, but maybe Bradley number one. Not super interested in Neshek, but maybe he gets some saves to pump up his trade deadline value?

Help me understand the concept of the quality start. If a pitcher goes 6 and gives up 3 runs, that's a 4.50 era and that really sucks. Does this stat have to do with getting to the bullpen later in the game?
Eno Sarris
1:11
Once upon a time, 4.50 really sucked, but right now the league average starter has a 4.43 ERA.

Its amazing how good you have to be to be a major league relief pitcher but I haven’t heard of maybe 80% of them

And yet some teams insist on having no names on the back of the jersey.

What do you think the best way to fill the void of Sabathia is for the yanks? Rotation depth is a big question mark and they've been extremely fortunate with their starters health so far. Chance Adams has been great in AAA but I do not think they would want to rush him. I'm skeptical towards midseason deals but if they're looking to acquire a starter (Sonny Gray), they might as well do it now before further damage. Thoughts?

I think it's time to try to catch lightning in a bottle with one of their young guys, but also talk to people about trades.

Are you an alt-J fan? Thoughts on the new album???
Eno Sarris

Fan.

Ever make it out to BottleLogic in Anaheim or try any of their BA stuff? Makes for a nice piggyback with a trip to The Bruery
Eno Sarris

Ooh, probably driving up to LA from SD for the Junior Boys show June 30th, could do that pair, but also into Monkish...

I went to a AA baseball game and was shocked at the prices, eno. SHOCKED. I bought all the beer.

Headed to St. Louis for the weekend...Perennial and 2nd Shift the ones to try?
Eno Sarris
1:14
Yup. Though Urban Chestnut is fun for the German styles.

RE: Sonny, yeah there's a mix of talent on that list. I wonder how the "least varied" list compares. Sometimes I think of pitchers like golfers. The best concept is to perfect the arm (swing) path and let the grip (club) do the work of the pitch (shot). You have to be supremely talented, like one of the best of all time, to just ad lib and actually get results. Otherwise you are basically introducing error because you prefer the creative process.
Eno Sarris
1:14
yeah, as great as that nutty 94 mph slider is, how often can he throw it successfully?
Just a Guy
1:15
are the brewers so dumb that they keep running an injured thames out there or was the hamstring issue not really an issue and the leagues just adjusted to him?
Eno Sarris
1:15
Sometimes you're good enough to play but not good enough to be your best.

With dropping Rich Hill, I've now jettisoned 15 of my 25 drafted players. I know the idea is to win the league--not the draft--but does that number suggest that I am a bad drafter, had real injury misfortune, or misread market trends? [Currently in fourth place].
Eno Sarris
1:16
I had someone put together a team of only waiver wire adds recently (not a single drafted player) and I think that team finished third.

Your view on fried eggs and avacado on sandwiches? For me, I'll order a turd sandwich if it has both.
Eno Sarris
1:16
I once said that the PB&J is like the only sandwich not improved by a sunny side up egg and that I would try the PB&J&E but I've never tried it because that sounds gross

True fact that is true: Yankees have best rookie position player and rookie starter this year.
Eno Sarris
1:17
I'd have to think harder to give you the 100% but it certainly seems that way on first glance.

An MLB player has likely spent a fair amount of time in something close to a meritocracy. This experience can shape someone's politics.
Eno Sarris
1:19
There's also the average background, which is almost never the same. But I like what you're pointing out. We almost always extrapolate our personal experience out. I've been in a meritocracy, ergo America is one.

do braves trade j. johnson?
Eno Sarris
1:19
They should, but if you're buying, he's third or fourth or fifth best to buy, right?
