Yeah if you really need the roster spot.

Alex Verdugo  or Joc Pederson for next 7 years?
Eno Sarris
1:06
Joc. Even if Verdugo gets some juice from the ball, he's a reach for league average power and doesn't steal a lot of bases... Even in real life he'd have to play killer D or get on base as often in majors as he did in the minors.

Question re: Berrios:

Whiffs are largely coming from the four seam fastball, while the secondary pitches (curve and change) are producing below average whiffs. You selling -- relative to current YTD production and in-year valuation -- performance as unsustainable?
Eno Sarris
1:08
Curve is getting 15% whiffs compared to 11% average. You're right that the four-seamer is the most impressive there, but he's at least at two pitch guy and the change gets a ton of GB. Like a Luis Severino.
Aaron

How do we find average whiffs, GB, movement, etc. per pitch type? For instance, to say something like, "[Player X] gets above average [Whiffs, GB or Movement] on his [Pitch Y]"
Ethan Hunt
1:10
Can we finally admit that Aaron Nola is overrated?
Eno Sarris
1:11
Who's doing the rating and what are they saying? I think he's a real life number two and should get that ERA under four, has plus sink on the sinker and change, should be able to get more GBS and suppress HR/9 better, BABIP doesn't need to be so bad. Love guys that can K and GB, especially in today's game.
ERA under FOUR! jesu.

Eno Sarris

Pay less for Gray?
Porcho Villa

Thoughts on Dinelson Lamet?
Eno Sarris
1:12
Love added use of slider, really like him. Bad command, but three good pitches, good home park.

Just like to say that the new site format is great after a couple weeks of getting used to it. Very functional. Rock on.

Speaking of sriracha, I'm a SF Giants fan who has been living in Sriracha,  Thailand (namesake of the sauce, duh) the past year. I was looking up Thai baseball and realized their national team is bad.  What would it cost me to sign all the Giants of my childhood (Snow, Bonds, Kent, Aurilia Santiago, Schmidt,  Reuter... Basically 2002...) to come play here?
Eno Sarris
1:13
not bad, people.

Going to be in Seattle in July for first time ever. (1) Where should I eat/drink. (2) Where should I sit at the Mariners game?
Eno Sarris
1:14
Dunno 2 but 1 is Holy Mountain and Cloudburst. The first is the best beer in town and the second is in Pike's Place near the fish market.
The Pine Box is a sweet bar too.

Have you ever been to Nashville?
Eno Sarris
1:15
Yes! Had a winter meetings there once. Went and saw music with some friends in two places, drank on the strip, had Hot Chicken, enjoyed myself thoroughly.
Juiced balls
1:15
I've read a couple article on the state of the baseball and how it may be juiced.  My question is how would that even happen?  Would MLB request the changes?  If Rawlings started producing the baseballs in a different method, wouldn't they have to inform MLB?
Eno Sarris
1:15
I think it's probably something small that happened on the factory level.
1:16
Rather than something baseball went out and did. But I'm not big on conspiracy theories. I just think that someone that found out what was going on would either a) hate Manfred enough or b) think he could get Manfred out for personal gain by leaking some evidence of the plot.

Rizzo prefers Diamond Dogs

Birthday tomorrow.  If i was to have 1 beer, what would it be?  Sandwich?  No limitations, price and acquiring said objects are of no concern.
Eno Sarris

Beer is so regional, just side up to your best local beer bar and ask for the best. Sando? I did once have a $40 Daniel Boulud burger and it was amazeballs.
Bleh

Stupid sexy Puig
NYTT
1:19
Speaking of Newcomb, how well has he performed in your eyes? Throwing more strikes, not as many strikeouts his last two starts.  Needs a third pitch?
Eno Sarris
1:20
Rising fourseamer and big curve is about as good a two-pitch combo as you can throw... the slider is decent but pretty similar to the curve... It might be enough. I like the velo enough.

The one weapon I'd want with me to survive? MAX SCHERZER

Add Glasnow to the list of tall pitchers. Also, re: sprinkling in sours, do Goses work just as well?
Eno Sarris
1:20
Yup! Just need tart to clean it up.
