The best rotation in baseball is _____.

12:29
flip a coin and heads is the Mets and tails is the Indians
if it lands on its side for some strange reason then it's the Nationals

babe ruth was worth 15 wins in 1923. so, would trout need to pitch like greinke every 5th game to provide the same value?
august fagerstrom
12:30
maybe wouldn't need to be that good but something like that

Is the previous albatross contracts of sluggers who decline after a couple years (eg. Howard) really killing Davis's market?
august fagerstrom
12:30
could be. might have more to do with just the teams that need a guy with Davis' impact don't need a 1B
that's the problem with being a 1B, there's nowhere else you can go

Drew Jackson - lucky 6 weeks or Mariners catch lightning in a bottle?
august fagerstrom
12:31
I'm not gonna lie to you -- this is the first time I ever heard of Drew Jcakson
Jackson
12:32
scouting the stat line, I'm going to say the guy with the .088 ISO in A-ball probably isn't looking like a major future impact right now, but he sure looks fast!
Inigo Montoya
12:32
Is Inciarte on Braves roster opening day? With 5 years of control it makes sense to keep him. But it also makes sense to trade him given how much value he may bring in return.
august fagerstrom
12:32
feels like the answer should always be "no" when asked if a guy currently on the Braves roster will be on the Braves roster in a couple months
so I'll say no, he gets flipped
nacho
12:33
thames was playing in Korea, no?
august fagerstrom
12:33
yeah probably
Josh

How many wins would add on to Schwarber and Soler's projections if they were hitting to outfields manned by Schwarber and Soler?
august fagerstrom
12:33
man this is a great question
all it would do really is increase their BABIP by like............ 20 points?
so it wouldn't be multiple wins, probably just some offensive runs leading to a fraction of a win
maybe some singles turn into doubles, too
Ryan

Is there really a chance someone like Cespedes would take a 1-year deal?
august fagerstrom
12:34
read that too
no, I don't think so
interesting thought though
Bork
12:34
Am I being way too positive in thinking that compared to some of the other FA SP deals, Happ's looks like a steal?
august fagerstrom
12:35
probably yeah

What, exactly, are the Rockies trying to do at this point? I can't really tell, can you?
august fagerstrom
12:35
the Rockies have been a team since 1993 and I'm pretty sure this question would fit in every offseason since then

More handsome - Sullivan or Neyer? Or do you have a write in vote?
august fagerstrom
12:36
never met Rob before but Jeff is a pretty handsome cat
Tom

Ken Rosenthal tweeting the White Sox have interest in Alex Gordon. If they sign him, does that make them a contender or even possibly the favorite in the AL Central?
august fagerstrom
12:36
not sure I'd go so far as favorite in the ALC, but that's mostly because I don't think there's *going* to be a favorite in the ALC
think any of the 5 teams, as currently constructed, could reasonably take that division
12:37
Gordon would certainly increase Chicago's chances

Pleasantly surprised by your music choice! Any other jazz trios you like?
august fagerstrom
12:37
not trios specifically but I listen to a lot of Jazz. nothing too out-there, though, just the staples.
