Salazar-Naquin-Zimmer-F.Mejia for Trout ! Not enough?
august fagerstrom
1:14
Not nearly enough
Blah blah
1:14
If the season ended today who would you have winning each award: AL ROY, NL ROY, AL MVP, NL MVP, AL CY, NL CY
august fagerstrom
1:15
Fulmer, Seager, Trout, Bryant, Quintana, Kershaw

Turner's speed is close to Hamilton's?
august fagerstrom
1:15
Yeah, Turner might be the next-fastest guy in the majors. Been meaning to do a home-to-first comparison actually
maybe I'll see if I can toss an IG up on this later today

goeff jenkins was the one who looked like brett favre right?
august fagerstrom
1:16
shit, yeah
I guess he sort of did, didn't he

Whats the deal with the Indians continuing to play Naquin and Davis in CF now that Almonte, the guy who solidified CF defensively last year, is back?
august fagerstrom
1:18
I'm not sure I agree that Almonte solidified CF defensively. Naquin always had a reputation as a stronger defender in the minors. Almonte takes realllly weird routes out there
I haven't thought to question the alignment yet

Anti-"frolf" because it references, specific brand of disc, you enjoy your created words to have an entymalogical origin rather than just jamming two words together, or choice c that I can't think of?
august fagerstrom
1:18
"disc golf" is fine for me
Da Bum
1:19
Watch much Olympics?
august fagerstrom

zero

Follow up on Yandy Diaz: If you look at his minors age/level stats, he's the closest thing to Matt Carpenter. Position flexibility and all
august fagerstrom
1:19
problem with that is Carpenter's undergone massive and nearly unprecedented changes to get where he is now
tough to use a guy like Carpenter as a comp for anyone
Mike

Corey Seager is currently tied for the NL lead in fWAR. If the Dodgers win the division, what are the chances he wins the MVP?
august fagerstrom
1:20
pretty decent

Let's say Mike Trout retired at the end of this season and never returned to the game. Is he a HoFer *right now*?
august fagerstrom
1:20
depends how it happened
1:21
if he just up and quit... no? I don't think so? he'd need some sort of tragic career-ending injury/accident, which is awful to think of

Quintana Cy Young?? Isn't a 4.07 xFIP concerning? What am I missing?
august fagerstrom
1:21
xFIP isn't something that actually happens
Franklin Stubbs
1:22
Trout hasn't played 10 years
august fagerstrom
1:22
right, yeah. this, too.
1:23
assuming that question was asked with suspended disbelief though
Maxamuz
1:23
No Kluber for CY?
august fagerstrom
1:24
as I wrote yesterday, it's such an impossible question to answer right now with so little separation that I actually think a RP should be considered. Kluber's right there, too. Quintana's just the first name that comes to mind
Alright, y'all. thanks for hanging and chatting. gonna get to writing. thanks for the handful of you that gave me new topic ideas!
peace
