Do you think Kyle Hendrick's performance this season is sustainable with his soft contact ability and the Cubs defens?
august fagerstrom
1:02
Yep. He's really good.
1:03
Hendricks might be the new Quintana, where it takes people like 3 years to realize how good they are

Why didn't Milwaukee refuse to let Lucroy go without Gallo in the package?
august fagerstrom
1:03
Maybe they preferred Brinson?

Was that really your dad?

He tried to sneak a question into last week's chat but I didn't believe it was really him

I know you dont answer fantasy Qs but looking for outside opinion on the matter. It's not about players. Last place team, mathematically eliminated, makes trade, albeit fair in terms of value, with first place team in redraft league. Should this be vetoed by commish? I say yes - commish said no bc the trade was fair on the surface.

If it's a fair trade (i.e. first place team isn't getting demonstrably better) then I don't think it matters who it's coming from

Who's the most underrated player in baseball? Brandon Crawford? Adam Eaton? Someone else?
august fagerstrom

Literally think it might be Mike Trout

No Frank Ocean album release, again!! Are you disappointed?
august fagerstrom
1:06

He re-started the stream at like 11:55 last night with brand-new visuals! How the hell do you not then drop it at midnight!

Realistic

August doesnt blow, but torn labrums do. I had a SLAP tear and Bankart tear at the same time. No bueno.
august fagerstrom
1:07
Don't exactly know what those two things mean but any tear is a bad tear
1:08
I hate my shoulder so much
I just wanna play fall ball :(

Sorry about that...meant to add. Blue Jays rotation 1-5 as good as anyone right now. One of the best closers in MLB. Great lineup. Everyone talking about Indians and Rangers, but Toronto might be making some noise this postseason.
august fagerstrom
1:08
Considering how underwhelming Storman's been, it's pretty remarkable how great Toronto's rotation is

Is David Ortiz a Hall of Famer?
august fagerstrom
1:09
Yep
He definitely gets voted in
I think he should definitely be in
Other disagree with the latter

What do you think the White Sox do this winter with Sale and Quintana: trade both, trade one or keep both?
august fagerstrom
1:09
Either keep both or trade both

Hellllloooo, August. Thank you for what you've done to your body. Also: Yasiel Puig improves his play in the remainder of the season and makes LAD look silly for cutting bait, after being claimed/traded to 'Team X.' True or false?
august fagerstrom
1:10
Funny thing is, he already had improved his play
1:11
131 wRC+ over his last 105 PA!
with well-above average right field defense and plus speed!
Yasiel Puig is a good baseball player
There's got to be underlying circumstances

How surprised would you be if Bork was actually a host of different people, each taking the identity on a different day based on whether Bork had appeared yet?
august fagerstrom
1:12
There are definitely Bork imposters
He is literally the first question in the chat every day, though
That one is #TrueBork
