Do you prefer dynasty or redraft leagues?
Eno Sarris
12:03
Dynasty. Churn and burn is not super fun to me.

Where you been

Judge - .329 iso, 30.x k%, 45% hard hit balls
Bellinger .344 iso, 26.x% k%, 45% hard hit balls. Playing in a tougher hitters division and 3 years younger
Eno Sarris
12:04
Wrote a whole piece about how I'd pick Bellinger over Judge to start a franchise.

Sure!

Hey Eno! In a keep forever league, would you give Bregman for Bellinger, Pollock, Domingo, Zimmer?
Eno Sarris
12:04
Yes. I like Bregman but that's a HAUL.
Unless you mean just one of them, in which case I'd do it for the first two. maybe the the third.

Who ya got for the next three years: Giolito, Martes, Newcomb, or Folty?
Eno Sarris
12:06
Newcomb or Martes. Have been out on Gio for a long time, Folty's problems are going to stay with him IMO.

The Orioles apparently didn’t trade Britton because they thought he should be worth the same sort of package that Chapman and Miller were last year.  They are trading away all of their international money for Quad A guys.  Their manager blasts pitch framing.  Are they the new Diamondbacks?
Eno Sarris
12:08
Had one FO person tell me that they had identified the Orioles as evaluating things in a way they could take advantage of, that they were a little backwards. I think that's a little unfair, since I've know their analytics people and they're top notch. However... you never know how much the team listens to their analytics team. Their awesome bullpen year in and year out may be all they use their numbers people for.

Important: after Austin Pruitt faced off with Dallas Keuchel last night in Houston, here's the list of pitching matchups where both starters' names were cities in the state where the game was played. http://valueoverreplacementgrit.com/2017/08/03/pitchers-are-cities-in-...

You're on the Albies train, correct?
Eno Sarris
12:09
Yes I find him to be the rare high floor high ceiling guy. Floor is like a .275/10/20 plus D second baseman. Ceiling... well here's how in the tank I am: Altuve. But that's like the 99.5th percentile outcome.

JC Ramirez fluctuates between a solid amount of Ks to almost no Ks from one start to the next. It's not his stuff so is it a sequencing thing he can sort out?
Eno Sarris
12:10
I mean he's like 90% fastball slider so I have no idea. Maybe he loses command of the slider some games? Because he has no command of the fastball, ever.
RaysWay
12:10
How good does the combination of Duda, Jennings, Cishek need to be to get the Rays to the playoffs?  Do they need to overperform? Or is the marginal upgrade of their 50th percentile projection do the trick?
Eno Sarris
12:11
They don't have problems scoring runs, really. Well, okay, middle of the pack in runs, but their home park suppresses runs. So I guess Duda is important.

Will you have an IPA today for IPA day?  My choice is Jai Alai in draft with my lunch.
Eno Sarris
12:11
I hope to, but all I have is a can of Easy Jack in the fridge, I think. and a bunch of sours. Maybe I'll treat myself to one at the bar on one of the car runs.

talk in the Mets-o-sphere of bringing back Bruce. Feelings on Bruce aside, do you think Conforto can continue to handle CF? By my eye he looks okay out there, and the advanced numbers aren't great but not atrocious either (-7 UZR/150, -1 DRS). Will the Mets be hamstrung if Conforto is the full time CF for 2018? Full time CF for 2018-2020ish?
Eno Sarris
12:13
I'm okay with keeping Bruce if it's to be the first baseman and they have a plan for CF. Even Lagares I might rather have in CF over Conforto. He's okay, but more 'in a pinch' than 'every day starter.' Use Bruce to bridge to Dom Smith, use Flores wherever, if you have some money, go get a CF or non closer RP, maybe a depth SP.

Would you say that Schoop and Odor are similar hitters, just one has been super lucky and one has been super unlucky?
Eno Sarris
12:14
Sorta. Odor's pop-up problem is part of a whole distribution issue, I'd guess without looking harder, while Schoop just pops it up a lot. This deserves more of a look though, because it's an interesting idea.

How do I identify adjustments for hitters? Is it looking at swing rates, K/BB?
Eno Sarris
12:14
GB/FB too.

I hope you're not making fun of Kenny Loggins.
