If Vlad Guerrero Jr's name was Rex Waldo Steinmart, would he be given so much prospect rope?
Dan Szymborski
2:52
If his name was REX WALDO STEINMART he's the best prospect ever.

Why are none of my questions ever answered on this chat, is it he Russians messing with me?

Thoughts on the Rasmus signing by the Rays?
Dan Szymborski
2:53
It's reasonable. The Rays are better than they looked last year.
And I'd prefer them signing 4th outfielders than trading Trea Turner for them.
Well as an analyst. As an O's fan, I want all the other AL East team trading Trea Turners for 4th outfielders.

Is there a trade out there that would let the Orioles swap Dylan Bundy for a starter with less team control? Bundy's high-ceiling, fragile, lottery ticket status seems like a uniquely poor fit for the Orioles who are operating on an essentially two year window of competitiveness
Dan Szymborski
2:54
There may actually be a fit on a team like that.
2:55
Though a lot of the rebuilding teams have shed their interesting starters to a large extent

Are you married or are you a crazy cat dude?
Dan Szymborski
2:56
I'm alone and have five bedrooms and cats.
Not married, just a girlfriend that more or less tolerates my existence.

Got in a discussion on a board today about the term ceiling. Guy was saying that you can't exceed a ceiling, because then by definition, it wasn't the ceiling. I said his definition was more that of a roof, not a ceiling. Are ceilings generally thought of as 90th percentile outcome?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
There's no hard and fast rule for this.

Dan - the benefits of great sandwiches are that they taste good. Do you agree?

Seems to follow.

To testify against him!

FF XV is mostly a camping/ roadtrip simulator. Fun, but more about wandering and generally faffing about than grinding and saving the world. Like, if you spent a lot of time fishing in Zelda OoT then it's right in your wheelhouse!

What would a Goldschmidt extension look like?

Brown to match his existing hair.

What are your gut reactions to the Mariner-Brave trade that just went down?
Dan Szymborski
3:00
THATS WHY YOU GUYS KEEP ASKING MALLEX SMITH QUESTIONS
No, I like that trade from the Mariners point of view.

You said Sheffield was slightly more deserving than McGriff. Do you think either should be in the Hall?
