More than anything what stood out in your Freeman article is how he significantly alters his posture in BP vs his gamer swing. That's crazy!!! Players are taught to hammer in the muscle memory and warned any deviation will screw with mechanics. Results have been unbelievable maybe it's something for instructors to consider.
Eno Sarris

yeah but pitchers won't throw certain pitches in BP -- Haren talked about not throwing the splitter much between starts -- and I think this is similar. Your back may have a certain amount of bullets.

The Mariners cannot outrun, outhit, or compensate in any way their pitching collapse this year.  Are they mostly doomed to wait out the year and hope for a free agent signing in the offseason?  What do you do to right the ship, Eno?
Eno Sarris
1:47
And they are locked into the core, mostly, too. I'd just keep looking for pitching, yeah.

Maine? Third for me.

How much of a travesty is it that a dude I work with eats the same plain turkey sandwich on wheat bread every day?
Eno Sarris
1:48
Slap it out of his hand and give him a better sando some day, and walk away.

Are the brewers buyers yet?

What a world we live in. We have them at 25% playoff odds, behind the Cubs' 70% numbers, and expected to go 82 and 80. but they've banked 47... I'd do it this way: buy if there are years of control, like a Jose Quintana, but not a true rental.

New rule proposal: home runs only count if they go out in a particular area (foul otherwise), and that area randomly changes each PA.

Like there's a disco light that highlights the area haha.

No love for Allagash in Maine? Not all their stuff is great but man do they make some great sours!
Eno Sarris
1:50
Their sours are great!
I usually wait to rec something like that till they say they like sours.

Someone was supposed to send that to me.

Will Tim Tebow get an MLB at bat this season. How about ever?
Eno Sarris
1:52
I'm fine with him getting a chance in the minors but he should not get one in the majors. Not now, and I doubt not ever.
I mean, yes I think baseball is entertainment, but there are only 25 major league roster spots and there has to be some sense of meritocracy to this thing.

What did you mean by "give me their shares" in relation to BP and Albies?
Eno Sarris
1:54
I'm still buying Albies, despite the K% jump I think he can make above-average contact, have something like a .120-.150 ISO, and steal a ton of bases at a premium defensive position.

Can I have your permission to just ignore Dinelson Lamet's two bad starts? Thanks!
Eno Sarris
1:55
Can't ignore completely because he doesn't trust the change, but I do like his stuff.

I saw Wu-tang perform Chambers at Rock the Bells a number of years ago, with ODB's son doing his verses. It was... okay. Go if you're desperate for some nostalgia, but not worth upsetting the wife over.

Re: backup catchers who should be regulars - Austin Barnes
Eno Sarris

Not necessarily on his team, but good point.
THE PREDICTOR

Austin Jackson will end up with higher career earnings than Bryce Harper, after opening a chain of lucrative clam chowder restaurants in Phoenix and Glendale, AZ

Weezer was better at Arroyo Seco

Oh man I thought they were pretty bad. That Hey Ya cover? yeesh.
Phils
1:58
Lively and Lieter Jr have both been pretty solid for the phillies while Eickhoff, Vinny, Eflin and company have been hurt. Are they winning spots in the starting 5 assuming a fully healthy squad?
Eno Sarris
1:58
They might be up and down types. Leiter seems like a kitchen sinker with a meh fastball, and Lively has deception but not Ks.
