Roberto Perez is so fun. 17 PA , 7BB 0 Hits. If he maintained a 38% walk rate, elite d-fence, and got 0 hits, would he be good?
august fagerstrom
1:33
Nah, walk rate would need to be closer to 50%
Instant potatoes
1:33
if mike napoli gets around to having that party, should i bring a nice key lime pie?
august fagerstrom
1:34
Ha, this is weird. "instant potatoes" submitted this query 17 minutes before I started talking about potato farming
ALSO, fun fact: that time, I type "farming" as "framing"

Ranger fan here, what would we have to give up to get both Teheran and Vizcaino from Atlanta? Thanks AF!
august fagerstrom
1:34
well Vizcaino just hit the DL, so that's going to keep his value down
1:35
which is a bummer for the Braves, because I think he was going to be a real nifty under-the-radar chip for the teams who missed out on Miller/Chapman
Roger
1:35
Are you sold on Sabathia being a viable trade chip? And what kind of return could he fetch?
august fagerstrom
1:35
No, he's probably a post-deadline waiver guy for a team willing to pay the remainder of his 2016 salary
and if his option is going to vest nobody will take him

Brady Aiken for Chapman too rich?
august fagerstrom
1:36
Think that's close.

Barry Bonds 2001 had HOME RUNS than singles

What do you make of AJ Reed's slow start? More seasoning needed? Should the Stros buy a hitter like Beltran?
august fagerstrom
1:38
It's 49 plate appearances and he has a .167 BABIP. And the last thing the Astros need is another hitter when they've got Gurriel and Bregman soon available
Particularly one who can't play the field

I work in downtown cleveland. the best thing to come out of the rnc is the fact that our entire office can work from home.

Best thing that came out of it for me is subleasing my apartment for $3500 a week

When a healthy Zimmerman and Daniel Norris replace Pelfrey and Sanchez in the Tigers rotation, do they become favorites to take a wild card spot?
august fagerstrom
1:42
Favorites? No. The favorites are the top six in the AL still. Favorites among the current "out" teams though, yeah

Should Chris Correa really have gotten that much jail time for hacking another baseball team's computer>
august fagerstrom
1:42
I know nothing about the legal process so I have 0 idea but it does strike me as rather harsh
Erik

Who is the NL's worst farmer?
august fagerstrom
1:43
Open to taking suggestions on this.
OddBall Herrera
1:43
That's a good typo - can we please change it from 'pitch framing' to 'strike farming' officially?
august fagerstrom
1:43
I'll allow it.

So now Realmuto is from Idaho?
Farmer Realmuto

Thanks for clearing my name...if you ever question my farming again you'll instantly regret it
Zorak

If a baseball was shaped like a potato, how difficult would it be to frame?
