This guy danced like this, sang like crazy, and ended up in a tree at some point last weekend at Pitchfork and we should all live so intensely

7 game series who you got, Dodgers or Astros?
Eno Sarris
12:02
I'm going to take the Dodgers. Kershaw gives them two wins (I know it doesn't work like that, but humor me) and that's a nice bank. Not sure Sonny Gray changes that calculus.

Got offered Kyle Tucker and Schebler for Stras and Cahill and a keeper? Take it or leave it?
Eno Sarris
12:03
Eh. This run environment seems to create Scheblers left and right and if Stras is a keeper he's best in deal.

I hate to be this guy, but I traded 4 years of Kris Bryant for 4 years of Gregory Polanco and 5 years of Maz and Aaron Nola. Did I do ok?
Eno Sarris
12:05
Maz is Mazara or Matz? If it's Mazara, I don't think this is as bad as it looks right now. Polanco was hurt early this year and can still give you a good BA 20/10+ kind of package which is rarer these days. And I still think Mazara's peak is .300/30/120 type stuff in that park with his approach. Matz? Don't love taking a step down in hitting for pitching in keepers, like ever.

Can the Dodgers get Britton with Willie Calhoun as the headliner?
Eno Sarris
12:05
That cat can hit. And sending him to an AL team softens the blow of his brick hands.

No Eno chat last week made me sad. Until I realized that there are no Eno chats in the void of death.
Eno Sarris
12:06
That DE-escalated quickly.

Indians went 1-5 on the bay area road trip. Yikes. Help me feel better about this team that is now only 3 games over 500
Eno Sarris

1) That division is straight poo poo no chaser.
2) They have the same run differential that the Boston Red Sox are currently sporting.
3) They have the best pitching in the American League.
4) Hitters are surprisingly easy to acquire, and a guy like Nunez could really be exactly what they need.

Everyone's talking about the Yankees' super bullpen with Chapman, Betances, Kahnle and Robertson, but I've watched most Yankee games this year and nobody has looked nearly as dominant as Chad Green
Eno Sarris
12:08
I love me some Chad Green. They going to stretch him out now?
cmon man
12:08
Deal McCullers for 75 cents on the dollar or is he gonna be alri?
Eno Sarris
12:08
don't do that.

T or F: Sonny Gray would only be a marginal improvement over Collin McHugh in an Astros potential Playoff Rotation.
Eno Sarris
12:11
yes, but! marginal improvements are still pretty huge in playoff situations, and turning game three from a cluster tuck into a Gray plus situation, and giving the team options in a game four situation, that adds up to more than marginal. For example, if you're up a lot after Gray wins game three, you can run the McHugh/Fiers/Morton situation out as your game four starter, or turn Morton and McHugh into really really nice sixth inning guys.
Eno

Have you drank anything from Other Half or Trillium?
Eno Sarris
12:11
All of it has been great.
Kyle

Day one of bottle weening for the 2 year old has resulted in multiple instances of sippy cups being hurled across the living rooms, as well naked temper tantrums. Stay tuned!
Eno Sarris
12:11
Sounds like my second. He still rubs my nipples and he's three in October.
Justin

What do you think a trade haul for a rental # ~2 SP like say Darvish looks like these days?  is the Cueto-KC template a good approximation?
Eno Sarris
12:12
We disagree about how good Yu Darvish is!
2-D
12:12
Any different feelings about Clevinger after seeing him in person?
Eno Sarris
12:13
Yes! I think the thing you don't capture until you are behind home plate is the deception. He does that gross arm swing between his legs, looks like a hippie, and then it's all legs and arms and hair coming at you. I saw tons of swings and misses on the changeup because of that deception.

What are the odds that Sandoval sees playing time for the Giants this season?
Eno Sarris
12:15
Time share with Hwang after Nunez gets traded? 30%? There's still Ryder Jones and Christian Arroyo at some point.
Shawn
12:16
Any data on how package stores are doing? I'm in CT, and New England is an IPA mecca these days, so I rarely go to the package store to buy IPAs and instead go right to the brewery. I would assume it's like that in other areas? Any idea if this is hurting the package stores, or is the IPA craze actually helping to get people in the stores?
Eno Sarris
12:16
There's a fight to the death when it comes to shelf space, that'll kill some mid-size breweries. But the package store itself I think is doing okay for now. I, for example, don't love the breweries within 15 minutes of my house. I love the ones that are 45 minutes away...
Moltar

I know I missed my opportunity to sell high, but I can't even get a nibble on Vargas as a throw in in a trade. Is he heading for drops-ville? I'm gonna need his roster spot once Keuchel comes back, and my only other drop option is Maeda.
Eno Sarris
12:18
I think I'd rather have Maeda, and they're right next to each other.

Joey Votto explaining how far he chokes up: [2 inches] "I'm hitting." [4 inches] "Two Strikes." [6 inches] "I'm scared of you." [8 inches] "Kershaw." It was during an MLB Network interview before the ASG. Just thought you'd enjoy it.
Eno Sarris
12:18
I did love that. I think it's how he solved the inside fastball/cutter situation.
jeff

seeing what Phelps just fetched from Seattle with that extra yr of control, you think the white sox could get a similar haul for swarzak? same age, only 2 homers allowed, half the walks and same k/9 rate as phelps. just a free agent next year.
Eno Sarris
12:20
One thing, and I'm surprised how rarely this came up with Kahnle talk: doing it for more than one year is pretty important if you're talking about paying for a reliever with years of control. Kahnle could lose his command just as easily as he found it, and Swarzak could lose that extra tick he found. Phelps, as a reliever, has been pretty much solid to better than that.
