When you're at a bar/restaurant do ask what's on tap or on draft?
Eno Sarris
12:15
Tap. Don't want their first pick in their fantasy football draft by accident.

ROS Bud Norris or Shane Greene? Norris has been extra valuable to me as an h2h closer because of his SP eligibility, which Greene also has (ergo I wouldn't drop Norris for a closer like Zeigler).
Eno Sarris
12:16
I'm going to stick with Norris. Rondon pitched the 8th in a close game and they still like him somehow. Norris going to stick like Joe Borowski.

Enjoyed meeting you a few weeks back, but I doubt you remember. Lol!

Considering handedness splits take quite the time to stabilize, how can one be confident a hitter can hit opposite handed pitching? For the top prospects or young hitters hitting well, do you want to see something like a 90 wRC+?
Eno Sarris
12:18
I might just look at usage. But that's when they're in the majors. I'd like to stay you could look at stance, but I'd think a guy like Bellinger might have a big platoon split and he's doing okay. It's... tough.

I'm trading Rafael Devers.  Which return do you prefer: Madbum or C.Mart and Quintana.  Between Quintana's move to the NL and Madbum's velo issues, is it crazy to think Quintana will outperform Madbum ROY?
Eno Sarris
12:18
I like getting two aces to one. Even if it's two tier two aces.

Scott's article about pitchers having been helped/hurt by parks this season has Corbin near the top of the "hurt the most" list. Corbin (aside from last start) has been pretty good recently. You buying?
Eno Sarris
12:20
Yep. Gap between fastball and changeup velo best in career, at least useful in all leagues on the road.

Best moving day beer? DIPA or Imperials stout?
Eno Sarris
12:20
The biggest bottle you got, the lightest biggest bottle. So probably a sour. so you don't have to move that crap.
Bubba

I don't get it.  Is Smoak really an elite 1B now?
Eno Sarris
12:21
I don't think I'd consider him as such for next year, but a big step forward in discipline unlocked it all for him this year.

Are the Mets really considering picking up Asdrubal's option for 2018, or are they just trying to create (literally any) demand for him as a waiver trade candidate?
Eno Sarris
12:24
Dude's been worth $8.5 million every year save one in his career, really. And how much does a Mets fan hate having Asdrubal and Wilmer around Rosario going into the offseason anyway? Leaves you options -- if Wright retires, have a chunk of change for an infielder and guys you can move around. Or spend on a CF.
12:26
Cain, Dyson, Moustakas... they're not amazing signs, but if the price is right...

Thanks for the recommendation for Neighborhood grill in SD. Went there during Comic Con and food and beer were great.
Eno Sarris
12:26
Love that place.
Avila
12:26
Does Fulmer find his strikeout stuff? I mean he's already pretty good, if he could combine that contact manager with a strikeout artist (or more strikeouts), couldn't he be great?
Eno Sarris
12:27
He's really favoring that change over the slider. Could be who he is.

Is it time to cut bait on Brent Suter in deep leagues? Alternatives are set up guys with no chance of saves.
Eno Sarris
12:27
A little bit of help vs a lot of hurt...
Chris

What are your thoughts on Berrios? In a dynasty would you trade Raisel Iglesias or Knebel, and either Kopech or Mitch Keller for Berrios and Gausman?
Eno Sarris
12:27
Keller and a reliever and I do it.
Troutmaggedon

Dickerson is back in the lead off spot and crushing it again. He went into a tail spin when they moved him to 2nd. Is there something to players just doing better in different lineup spots especially one like lead off?
Eno Sarris
12:28
Could be more about the tendencies of the pitchers in that spot. More fastballs?
OC
12:28
What do you think of Domingo Santana's mini-breakout? His K% is down 5%, but the only real changes I'm seeing is swinging at more pitches (with a small increase in contact percentage). Is this adjustment sustainable, or will pitchers just start to pitch him more out of the zone to take advantage of his higher swing rate?
Eno Sarris
12:28
I believe in it, but mostly because his shoulder is right again and he can lift it.

Matt Chapman broke DRS
Eno Sarris
12:29
He's very goo.

Thoughts on Sonny Gray for the rest of the year in Yankee Stadium? Pretty big downgrade from o.co
Eno Sarris
12:29
It is, and maybe I'll be wrong, but I'm buying Gray with a sub .9 HR/9 because he's top ten in eliciting low launch angles and throws tons of breakers, even more than the systems say he does.
Troutmaggedon
12:29
Cobb has been better but would you be selling in a keeper if you're not in it this year?
Eno Sarris
12:30
The change is actually starting to look good, but yes totally selling in keepers, the exact kind of guy to sell in a keeper.

Yuuuuuuuuup.
Could say the same about iPAs.
