World Series or bust?

Paul et al. discussed on pod yesterday: Devers vs. Albies vs. Rosario long term. How would you rank them?
Eno Sarris
12:41
That was me. The et al. Was me.

I have 5 premier hitting prospects in my dynasty league (Robles, Devers, Rodgers, Eloy, Hoskins) and my team is contending. Do you have a 'cut-off' for prospects you won't trade? Feel like top 10 hitting prospects are gold.
Eno Sarris
12:42
Yeah, but most recent research says that the gold extends a little further into the 20s. I'll trade anything from 25+, and maybe in the high teens, but don't touch my top tens.

Conforto's slash line is sexy. .295/.401/.573. Can he and Amed be Wright/Reyes 2.0?
Eno Sarris
12:43
I love Conforto, and having talked to him, absolutely get the David Wright vibe -- accountable, affable, ready to lead, heady, and elite batted ball spray with power and elite discipline. I don't know as much about Rosario, wouldn't give him young Reyes speed, but it really could be.

What does Rafael Devers look like in his prime? Seems pretty high-floor, at the very least.
Eno Sarris
12:45
Rendon this year? He's great.
Him and Albies are the cream of the newest crop.
Travis

Say something bad about Ronald Acuna. I feel like I'm starting to get way too excited. Send me back down to earth a bit.
Eno Sarris
12:46
I don't know how much he's going to strike out in the majors? 12-13% swinging strike rates in the minors right now, could be as much as 25% strikeout rate in majors, maybe more. Otherwise, all systems go.

12:47
I just traded Danny Salazar and Amed Rosario for Rafael Devers in a Dynasty, no contracts keep indefinitely. I'm rebuilding and already have Correa at SS.

I did well, right?
Eno Sarris
12:47
Yes

Good day Eno! Any thoughts on the Tyranny of the IPA?
Some highlights..."The style accounted for nearly 30 percent of the market..." Brewers complain about the power of IPAs. “Everybody is sort of tired of it,” Reed said. “At the same time, what are you going to do? If that’s what sells out of your tanks, that’s the next beer you’re going to brew.”

I dunno man. I like IPAs. And anyway, these days, I think it's silly to get worked up about it. There are wheat IPAs, hazy IPAs, session IPAs, oat IPAs, fruit IPAs, sour IPAs, farmhouse IPAs. It's grown to the point that it's just a wing of the beer world with many sub categories.

Should I drop Nova for Wacha in a 10 team H2H points league?
Eno Sarris
12:49
Yes.

Every day is IPA day.  Now you know.
Eno Sarris
12:49
see?
BK

Any recommendations on IPAs with lower ABV? Sometimes I like to have more than 1 or 2.
Eno Sarris
12:51
Firestone Walker Easy Jack, AleSmith X, Toppling Goliath psuedoSue, RJ Rockers Day Drinker, Lawson's Super Session, Jack's Abby Hoponius Union, I'll even do some Stone Ripper.
Snarfle
12:52
I know his name isn't Birdwell, but I'm going to call him that anyway. Is he good? Or just a random good month? Do I migrate him in the 12-teamer or keep him in the nest?
Eno Sarris
12:52
Not a fan. Can't see it working.
Kurt Snoozuki
12:52
Of all your moves, which one was the best, which was the worst? I assume Germany was the wurst
Eno Sarris
12:52
My first house move was the worst. We had a basement and didn't know we'd be moving so we had crap down there that went years back that wasn't even ours.
Tommy
12:53
Would it be possible to get an article or pod in depth Eno look at on the cusp minor league pitchers to acquire or avoid?
Eno Sarris
12:53
So much easier if I had minor league track man.
Kurt Snoozuki
12:53
I snaggled Frankie Montas in my dynasty after hearing your report on Melvin considering him long term. But how long term are we looking? He looks hella bad right now.
Eno Sarris
12:53
Trust the stuff.
Rick C

I'm a Braves fan, but I find it hard to view Albies as a high-floor guy.  Some of this is probably tied to his elbow injury, but he struggled to hit RHP much of this year.   And if he doesn't hit against RHP, he's basically a good middle infield defender with speed.  There's not going to be power, and if he doesn't get on base, the speed isn't too useful.
Eno Sarris
12:54
Defense should be there to float him, but yeah I mean every prospect has the 'real floor' I guess. It's just too sad to think about.
Jeremy
12:54
Recently lost both McCullers and Ray, so in dire need of some SP help. How would you rank these waiver arms? Corbin, Ryu, Castillo and JC Ramirez?
Eno Sarris
12:55
Corbin Castillo Ryu
Spanky

Adam Eaton was cut in my ottoneu league for an $8 cap hit (points league). Think he'll be worth 10-14 bucks next year off the knee injury?
Eno Sarris
12:55
yes.
Nihilist Eno
12:56
We've all been put on revocable waivers and will ultimately get claimed by the GM of death
Matt
12:56
But if you ask "What's on tap?" are you ever afraid they might bust out in dance?
