Oh that will hurt, but if you got skin in the game, go get those dollar bills.

Is buttered toast an open-faced sandwich?
Eno Sarris
1:27
This is why I don't love the argument. There's protein in butter, so maybe, but damn man that's a frigging piece of toast.

How does a no contract keep indefinitely dynasty league work? That doesn't sound very fun at all...
Eno Sarris
1:27
You have a sell/buy cycle that usually helps the thing keep moving, but yeah if there are no escalators, there's often a 'I got Trout and a bunch of guys and I'm going to keep winning' thing that happens. I like it better when it's like Ottoneu and they get more expensive.

Eno, I have both Addison Russell and Arcia in dynasty league. Arcia looks like he could go 15-15. Any reason to think those SB make him a better keeper? Thanks!
Eno Sarris

Harder to find speed. Especially in dynasty, where you can't just pick up a young player with speed.

How discouraged are you by Lewis Brinson's 31% K rate through 54 PA? Do you expect him to make any sort of impact in 2017?
Eno Sarris
1:29
Literally asked a front office person what Brinson's true talent K% was in the bigs right now and we both agreed on 30%. He might improve later, but.

Close on a house on August 14th and move two weeks later. Should I try to start drinking down my beer collection now? It's... substantial
Eno Sarris
1:29
Yeah you wouldn't want something to break or sit in the sun on all day better start

I worked for a moving company the summer I was 20.
Worst.
Job.
Ever.

Is there a way for mere mortals like us to try to gauge if a hitter's going to rebound? For example, let's say I'm trying to figure out if it's time to move on from Hanley. What else besides BABIP should I be looking for in his stats to determine if he's gonna get any better in the last couple months?

Exit velo works here. Compare now to the past. There's an easy jump page on baseballsavant.mlb.com where you can see his rolling exit velo.

I've lost Kershaw and Price to the DL. Still have Carrasco DeGrom Duffy, Manaea. Can I get by if I'm able in pitching if I package deGrom with stuff for Altuve?

If it's H2H and you're playing for the 'get by and then have a sweet playoff roster' I like it.

What do you get on a hot dog?

Mustard and grilled onions mostly

Re sandwich chains: Ike's is pretty bomb
Eno Sarris
1:31

How important is a manager? Beyond clubhouse atmosphere, how many wins better can a good manager vs a bad manager be in terms of in game decisions and roster/lineup?
Eno Sarris
1:31
Two to three wins I think.
D.B. Sweeney as Shoeless Joe

Still a believer in Greg Bird?
Eno Sarris
1:32
For next year, yes. .250/.350/.475 type that will always be undervalued.

Watched Treinen the other day....reminds me a lot of Kameron Loe.  Crazy movement but no idea where it is gonna end up. This also reminded me of Cameron Poe, and how much I loved Con-Air. Nic Cage, man.

Whys is there so much demand on $20+ 4pack IPA releases now? The $/WAR on these is so much worse than something like Booming Rollers at half the price
Eno Sarris
1:33
Hype.
TroutAcquired
1:33
Grade as a percentage win for either side. Keeper League Trout Carrasco Khris Davis and a third pick for Goldschmidt Blackmon Tailson and a 6th pick.
Eno Sarris
1:33
Trout side 90%

Reading the players tribune makes me feel like I'm grading first year philosophy student papers. Every player seems to think they have some deep understanding of life and the world and have a special message to give the world.

We are all watching them, talking about them, GIFing them, yelling about them, yelling at them... they can be excused for thinking they are at the center of the universe, maybe.

My bro (not biological, ya dig?) works at Lord Hobo.  Let me know if you want an e-intro.

Ask him if he'll be pouring at OctFest.

Where are your heatmaps from in your Salazar article?
Eno Sarris
1:34
FG, probably up for everyone soon.

In your latest pod with Paul, you referred a few times to a hitter having a good or bad batted ball mix. Any chance you could elaborate with some general rules of thumb for what constitutes a good or bad mix? Kind of a newbie but trying to learn, thanks for all the help you give us!
Eno Sarris

There's no 'good for everyone' but typically I don't really want my power hitter to be 50% GB to 25% FB, there are some power hitters that make that work, but 1/1 or so is better. Look at Acuna's mix. That's going to be powerful.
