Have you read The Arm? Seems to predict what the Jays considered doing with Sanchez and call it ridiculous
august fagerstrom
1:24
Yep. That's mostly what informed my opinion from earlier, tbh
I'm pretty willing to concede to Jeff on that kind of stuff
Kyle
1:25
Is Kolten Wong ever an all star again?
august fagerstrom
1:25
was he ever?
Carey
1:25
Yasiel Puig over under 20 home runs in 2017?
august fagerstrom
1:25
over!
I am such a believer
Steve
1:25
Does the Fangraphs staff play fantasy football together?
august fagerstrom
1:26
I think Swydan is the only full timer who cares even one iota about football?
Wait no Jeff is a Seahawks fan I think
answer: no we don't

is it lame for a middle-aged man to play in a mixed softball league?
august fagerstrom
1:26
not at all!
do what you like
I intend to play softball for as long as my body allows me
1:27
It might be my favorite activity
Eric

How would you rank these 3 over the next few seasons: Dahl, Kepler, Benintendi?
august fagerstrom
1:27
reverse order
Carl Crawford's Pet Brontosaurus
1:27
Not saying the SSS is relevant, but 2 major prospect flops (so far) in a year from the Stros seems like a fair question. Especially when you look at a team they are often compared, the Cubs and who have flopped what? Soler out of probably 5 guys in the last year? I think the guy asked a fair question.
august fagerstrom
1:28
I don't think it is at all fair to use the word flop regarding Bregman and Reed, who have *combined* for fewer than 100 major league plate appearances. That's silliness
And White wasn't even a prospect
Josh
1:28
If Ortiz is a HOFer, then Edgar Martinez has to be in too, right?
august fagerstrom
1:28
Yep
Should be

What's the Reader's Digest version of how you became a FG/BBWAA writer at such a young age?
august fagerstrom
1:29
Worked hard which put me in a position to get lucky and meet the right people at the right times
crystal pepsi
1:29
fangraphs boxers with the writers faces on the crotch and rear?
august fagerstrom
1:29
nightmare fuel
Matt

You guys a FG should have custome made Bork onesies for your children. You'd all be a big happy Bork-graphs-family
august fagerstrom

lot of FanGraphs clothes talk in this chat!
All Betts Off
1:30
Hey Aug,
august fagerstrom
1:30
Hey, Betts
Kyle
1:30
How good will Edwin Diaz be for the rest of this year and 2017? Top 5 closer? Does he ever start again?
august fagerstrom
1:30
Top five is aggressive but he is a legitimate high-leverage reliever moving forward and he's there to stay
Erik
1:31
What does Yasiel Puig's bad clubhouse behavior actually look like?
august fagerstrom
1:31
Haven't been around the team so obviously speculation but it seems less like antagonistic behavior *toward* his teammates and moreso just not being the kind of professional athletes players are expected to be
1:32
In terms of body care, timeliness, work ethic, etc.
You've got to sacrifice a lot to be an athlete
