Man I make this mistake a lot.

I've found that in my keeper league it's easier to get young guys who haven't broken out yet but have major league experience (someone like Nomar Mazara) than it is to get prospects who have never played. Who are some guys you might target in that scenario? Like an Eduardo Rodriguez type?
Eno Sarris
12:44
This is true, which is why I'm trying to get Franco in a couple places. Schwarber now might be a good get. I think he can .250/30 at least. Nick Castellanos still interesting in this way. Alex Bregman, minutes after he was BREATHLESS MUST HAVE Alex Bregman.

I don't care if you're a 12 year old girl or a 30 year old man; Carson belongs on a poster on your wall!

What is your level of confidence in Joe Ross currently? He's been throwing his change up more in this recent good stretch.
Eno Sarris
12:46
I do like that he's doing that. It's still below average in every way, and he's still injury prone, but I'm sad I sold him low in one league.

So Judge has an xBA of .303 (launch angels, exit velo, BBs, Ks). When is it time to think of him as a true talent .280-.290 guy?
Eno Sarris
12:48
Very interesting. I see .293 on his newest spreadsheet, with a .357 BABIP. I thought that BABIP was possible, but that it wouldn't lead to that batting average. I guess it wouldn't be crazy if he had the best batting average relative to his strikeout rate of all time, considering he looks pretty singular.

How should we be looking at the steals category next year? It seems like you need one of the top guys to compete but of the top guys on only like 3 of them don’t kill you other categories. What do you think?
Eno Sarris
12:49
I'll definitely buy some speed-only guys in the future.

Huh? Other than all the great young players?

Best Fantasy baseball book you have read?  (My vote is FantasyLand)
Eno Sarris
12:51
Considering it's the only one I've read... That one!

I have the opportunity to trade for Dallas Keuchel, how do you feel about him coming off the DL?
Eno Sarris
12:51
Should be fine I guess. Neck injury, flying a little blind for comps.

Enjoyed your article about Newcomb and Montgomery. How much help do you think Flowers and ML umps have been to Newcomb's ability to throw strikes versus just a SSS? Do you like him long term as a #3
Eno Sarris
12:52
Did you see Newcomb's quotes? They left me cold. He's doing better because he's trying harder? I mean I know that it worked for Lindor, but Lindor was doing fine. Newcomb was walking every other batter, and thought, yeah, that's just because minor leagues or whatever?

Would you trade Mallex Smith for A Beltre ?  Don't need his SB.
Eno Sarris
12:52
Yes.

*Correction on previous post*
Alderson needs to throw the training staff out with the ice-bath water. The pitching is getting all the news, but Sandy isnt getting any credit for the really good lineup hes put together in NY. The Mets should be trotting out a lineup with all above average and several elite bats. Injuries to Duda/Walker/Conforto/Yoenis have killed them. Is this going to cost him his job?
Eno Sarris
12:53
He hasn't fired a manager yet. This might free of us Terry finally though.

Was wondering if Alex Meyer was going to make your late-blooming tall pitchers list. Was looking ok, even with walks, except vs. BOS and a MIN team that walks particularly well. Thoughts?
Eno Sarris
12:53
Yeah and it's command as a reason for his delay and has always had good stuff. I'll cautiously move him into the top 100.

What's the best course of action for the Mariners at the deadline? Feels like they aren't going to make a WC and selling the meager farm for a small shot at making a play-in game seems like a poor decision.
Eno Sarris
12:56
Who do they have to sell that's not nailed down? They still seem like they in a window, just need to find some pitching and their big free agents are... Steve Cishek and Danny Valencia. Ah, Jarrod Dyson and Carlos Ruiz. I doubt they're getting much back there. I think they play it out with minor moves.

Jon Gray career: 4.84/1.32 home, 4.53/1.39 away. So ... plug and play and pray.
Eno Sarris
12:57
He's not quite the same pitcher he was early on.

I have literally received at least 10 October tweets about the beatles beer article. The same about the trump voters one.
Eno Sarris

New social media person. Will pass on that feedback.

I don't give too much credence to the Cards rumored interest in Donaldson; I see, at the absolute most, them doing something for someone like Ozuna (but likely something much smaller). What do you think the odds are they go for something Big like that? 15% maybe, if the price is right? Division seems potentially winnable, and they're never one to punt a season...
Eno Sarris
12:59
I'm surprised to see a 23% playoff odds. I don't think it's their kind of move, but maybe their signaling to teams that they are buyers with that rumor. Every sourced rumor like that has a backstory like this.

Dynasty roster crunch.  How would you rank these arms: F. Martes, L. Castillo, B. Snell.
Eno Sarris
12:59
The Walk the Lineup crew! That order, though the first two are a little closer than the third.

What evidence is there that park factors are hurting Rockies' hitters?
Eno Sarris
1:01
It's that the park hurts them in ways that are not obvious. I'm not saying I've nailed it, but I see some smoke here: http://www.espn.com/mlb/insider/story/_/id/13227274/does-coors-field-m... and here: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/that-other-thing-thats-tough-about-play... and others have tried to poke that bear too

Are the Phillies making any progress in their rebuild?  Seems like their young players, and in particular their pitches, haven't quite lived up to expectations.
