I haven't noticed any real calibration difference.
Though sometimes there's oddities - ZiPS likes almost every Cardinal position player better than Steamer for some reason

What is an acceptable mutually-beneficial contract for the O's to give Trumbo now?
Dan Szymborski
3:11
1/18 and save face.

It's hard to outright buy prospects, but could a team overpay for someone ($100m over five years for Chapman) and then flip to a team for a few elite prospects if they ate the entire $100m contract?
Dan Szymborski
3:11
They could do something like this.

Why is Vlad Guerrero a consensus HoFer among the SABR crowd but Jim Edmonds lasted one year on the ballot? They're almost the same player except Edmonds was the more valuable fielder.
Dan Szymborski
3:11
Hey, I complained mercilessly about that.
You don't hear talk about Edmonds right now because we already lost.

When will Rockies ZiPS come out? The David Dahl question got me all jittery. He's very handsome.
Dan Szymborski
3:12
They come out at the apportioned time.

How does Mussina get in and not Schilling? Cause he isn't an ass hole?
Dan Szymborski
3:12
Schilling ought to be in, of course, but Schilling isn't winning friends among the marginal voters.

Horseradish? You Arby's puppet
Dan Szymborski
3:12
I said horseradish, not horsey sauce.
3:13
The actual grated stuff you get in a jar, not the mayo+horseradish concoction

Why is Gwent better than Hearthstone?
Dan Szymborski
3:13
I'm not big on Gwent.
Shadowverse, on the other hand, is better than Hearthstone right now.
Though you have to get used to the very Japanime styl;e.

you must be rushed, your sarcasm detector is off today

Sorry, I'm trying to fit 75 minutes worth of questions into 45 minutes.

Which Ernest movie is the best? and why is it Scared Stupid?
Dan Szymborski
3:15
Can there be a best Ernest movie?
True story: Ernest P. Worrell's character is related to Todd Worrell.

Can we call the "begrudgingly going back to your old team for barely more than the QO" 'The Bautista' now? Used in a sentence:

I noticed Greg Holland wasn't included with KC's ZiPs, although that was his last team. Can you give me a projection for him, or wait until the final spreadsheet comes out?
Dan Szymborski
3:16
I just forgot.

CKII is so confusing and hard to pick-up, EUIV seems downright simple compared to it. But then again I must be biased. Give it another look.
Dan Szymborski
3:16
CKII, as long as you don't start too aggressive with who you pick (like, say, going with HRE emperor), you have simple strategic choices at the start.
OK, gotta go!

Thanks for joing me everybody! Sorry we had to stuff the chat awkwardly. I
See you guys next week, I'm late!
