Trillium isn't exactly close to downtown Boston......I have 1 day, and not a long one. Is it worth it? Alternatively, anything in Western Mass you love (and no TreeHouse won't work timing wise, alas)?

I don't actually know where the tasting room is, but the brewery is in south station, right? not too far on the subway, and Raw 24 I think is the name of that awesome raw bar that has a kicking taplist around the corner from Trillium (no taps at the brewery).

Does McCutchen's resurgence seem legit for the long term?
Eno Sarris
12:18
I see an above average player: above average patience, above average contact, above average power, above average speed, above average (corner outfield) defense.

Trea Turner has more steals than my whole team (12tm 5x5). Peraza and a recently added Pham are my best bets for steals (no thanks to Correa). DeShields worth owning? Anyone in the minors to keep an eye on? Trade Matt Kemp for Maybin? HALP
Eno Sarris
12:19
Kemp for Maybin is not nuts. Maybin is secret Good but Kemp is very replaceable in todays game.

Given his size/strength and average exit velocity, do you think Judge has a chance at running a BABIP in the .350-.375 range consistently?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Also he doesn't hit everything in the air. I'll give him a .345-.350.

Can Sam Dyson be effective again as a closer in SF?
Eno Sarris
12:19
Yeah he's my pickup there too.

Is Chris Archer the new Brandon Morrow. He always underperforms in terms of ERA.
Eno Sarris
12:20
Could be that he'll have worse than average platoon splits because he only throws a fastball and slider.
curious
12:20
is Matz due to start unravelling without his slider?
Eno Sarris
12:20
I don't think he needs one if he has a curve and change and I'm increasingly convinced that 90+mph sliders are the most stressful pitch in the game.

Need a spot starter for this weekend - M Monty? Cotton? Hammel? Anybody less owned than that you'd take a chance on?
Eno Sarris
12:21
Monty.

Rusney is hitting .310 in AAA, which team wants him as a free salary dump? And is that the right move for Boston if its possible?
Eno Sarris
12:22
Braves seem like a decent fit? Only one more year of Markakis and they could move them in and out.

Does Joc seem like he's turned a corner?
Eno Sarris
12:23
Yes, look at that fly ball rate. He told me once that his whole strategy is "try to hit it in the air." http://www.fangraphs.com/graphs.aspx?playerid=11899&legend=1,2,3&statA...

If I had to graph fan reaction to a player/walk-up song I would rank Trevor Hoffman and "Hells Bells" and Charlie Blackmon and "Your Love" as the two best I have seen. Who are your top three?
Eno Sarris
12:24
Josh Reddick and "Careless Whisper" and Coco Crisp's "Let me Clear My Throat" were good ones.

You should go down to LA though.
Eno Sarris

In San Diego tho.

Hi Eno!  Do you ever get tired of all the high-end beer and sandwich accoutrement you have access to and just like totally low-brow it for a day or three?  And what would a day of low-browing entail for you?  Holing up in the back of a rusty panel van with a case of Olympia and some White Castle sliders, throwing 10 grades on Frisbee Golfers?

Luis Castillo - buy, sell, hold?
Eno Sarris
12:27
Buy! I don't see why he should give up homers on that high-velo interesting movement fastball, and his secondaries are really good.
Big Tuna
12:29
With the As selling off pieces, where do you see Lowrie ending up? Is he at risk of becoming a bench piece on a contender?
Eno Sarris
12:29
Could he start at third or second on the Angels if they do a modest buy?
Linus

Jeff Samardzija:  hold or stream in 10-team?
Eno Sarris
12:30
Hold.

Would you trade Bundy to get Buxton in a keeper league?
Eno Sarris
12:31
Yeah, I'm willing to trade pitchers for lesser hitters in keeper leagues all the time.
Luzinski'sSweatyGooch
12:31
With the  Yankees baby bombers and Rays offensive resurgence, is there something going on with their hitting philosophies? From the naked eye it appears that their hitters are dropping hands early to get on plane with low pitches and launching them
Eno Sarris
12:31
It's the Twins that lead the league in launch angle, surprisingly.
