Thoughts on the Mets' trade for AJ Ramos?
Dave Cameron
2:01
Perfectly fine. He's an okay reliever and brought an okay return.
Trent

Off topic, but curious to hear your opinion: how many years on the ballot does it take Beltre to make the HOF?
Dave Cameron
2:01
1
3,000 hits gets him the old-timers vote, all the other stuff gets him the nerd votes
2:02
Alright, Paul Swydan is going to come take over for a bit.
Thanks for the questions, everyone.
Paul Swydan
2:02
Hi everybody!
Dave Cameron
2:02
Feel free to ask him why I'm such an idiot.
Paul Swydan
2:03
Haha, yes, of the two of us, I definitely wouldn't be the idiot.
Ned Yost
2:03
We want Dave back.
Paul Swydan
2:03
Fair! But you're stuck with me, so...
This is lude-icris
2:04
Give us the idiot!
Paul Swydan
2:04
That's more like it.
Nelson
2:04
JD Martinez looking at something like 3/60 next year?
Paul Swydan
2:04
Nelson, try to focus, this is the trade *deadline* chat. Martinez was dealt two weeks ago!
2:05
But, I think he'll be able to command more in terms of both money and years than that.
Maybe like 5/140.
or, 5/120
Tommy
2:05
Will the Brewers make anymore moves for a starter potentially?
Paul Swydan
2:05
Unless it's a rental who comes cheap, I can't see it.
Talks of them jumping in on Gray/Darvish seem to have subsided.
Colonel Dingus
2:06
Which contender most needs to make a trade right now?
Paul Swydan
2:06
The Red Sox currently have no good fifth starter and no good catcher, so they certainly spring to mind.
Sean
2:06
I actually want the prolific Travis Sawchik back
Paul Swydan
2:06
I bet you want a back rub too.
Phil
2:06
But The Red Sox are probably not going to do much... what is Paul going to talk about?
Paul Swydan
2:07
I don't know, you people are going to have to feed me some softball questions here!

Taking a step back from the deadline mania, how would you rate the Padres' rebuilding effort so far?
Paul Swydan
2:07
Poorly.
Dan
2:07
Mike Trout to whom? and for what?
Paul Swydan
2:07
According to Brisbee, for Joe Panik.
Yu
2:07
Does Darvish get dealt?
Paul Swydan
2:08
Boy, if the deal Lucroy and not Darvish, they better be damned sure they're re-signing Darvish AND signing Otani this offseason, otherwise they're going to look very foolish.
Kevin
2:08
Freddie Freeman to the Astros. You heard it here first.
Paul Swydan
2:08
Good take, Kevin. Love it. Keep 'em coming.
TKDC
2:08
Why on Earth is Brandon Phillips still a Brave?
Paul Swydan
2:09
Does he still have a no-trade clause in his contract even after his trade to Atlanta? Or was his no-trade a 10/5 thing? If the former, that'd be my guess.
Scott
2:09
Why are corner hitter so cheap right now? It wasn't long ago those guys were returning perfectly hefty returns (jay bruce, justin upton come to mind)
