Carlos Peguero vs rymer liriano
Dan Szymborski
12:25
Liriano
Dinger
12:25
What about Rymer and the Rox?
Dan Szymborski
12:26
It makes too much sense for the Rockies to do. They prefer spending $10 million a year to get a 4th outfielder's declining years and pretending it'll help them win 69 games instead of 68 and that makes their rebuilding easier because crazy reasons.

Is the swap of borderline non-tender Mark Trumbo for out-of-options third catcher Steve Clevenger the lowest amount of value that's ever changed hands in a trade involving two major leaguers?
Dan Szymborski
12:26
I dunno, there are a lot of nothing trades of MLBers.

Does Rymer Liriano make sense for a team like the Braves or Phillies to take a flyer on?
Dan Szymborski
12:26
Yes

The new CBA should find a way to ban Curt Schilling from ever being able to do anything with or relating to baseball. Agree?
Dan Szymborski
12:26
No.

AL East: Yanks, Jays, Sox, Os, Rays - in that order.
Dan Szymborski
12:27
I wouldn't be shocked by any order, though I do think the first 3 are a step above the last 2.

Why are there so many bust prospects in mlb? Seems like NFL and nba have a lower bust rate
Dan Szymborski
12:27
Well, for one, the NFL doesn't get players until they're essentially at AAA
12:28
If minor leaguers were independent and teams had to draft from AAA, there would be a lot fewer busts.

Bobbi Bradley has been rated as the # 4 1B prospect.. Does he make it to the corner of Carnegie and Ontario this season?
Dan Szymborski
12:28
Bobbi? Is that a porn star version?
12:29
Let's not go nuts, he only made a brief cameo at high-A.

Did you have to change everything you thought about The Rays in 2016 because of The Steve Pearce Signing? (yeah, I capitalized it.)
Dan Szymborski
12:29
No

Arismendy Alcantara have any trade value given the lean nature of 2B depth?
Dan Szymborski
12:29
Too much uncertainty. I think he'll be a good role player.

Instead of saying the Mets will get 3 WAR out of Yoenis in 2016, could you argue its actually 5 or 6, since they also took 3 away from their main competitior?
Dan Szymborski
12:30
I guess you could, but it's very easy to make wacky and or too-cute arguments with this line of reasoning.

Why has no team experimented with treating/paying minor leaguers like human beings? Seems like the payoff would be well worth the cost. Is there a class-solidarity thing going on where no team wants to be the one that steps up and demonstrates that having minor leaguers paid okay is possible?
Dan Szymborski
12:31
Well, some teams *are* trying to do a better job with their minor leaguers. But progress in baseball is glacial.

Will either Chris Johnson or Edwin Jackson help the Marlins this year?
Dan Szymborski
12:31
Jackson might, though more likely if he gets sent back to the bullpen.
12:32
Chris Johnson? No.
RotoLando

Which current player most deserves to have his name universally written in all caps?
Dan Szymborski
12:32
Trout
Andrew
12:32
At what point should the Astros seriously attempt to extend Correa? Don't they lose leverage the longer the wait? Did the Angels time it perfectly with Trout?
Dan Szymborski
12:32
They shoudl attempt it at the earliest possible time.

Who is the worst player in baseball in 2016 according to ZIPS?
Dan Szymborski
12:33
I'm not even done all the projections!
Joe
12:33
Do you do any kind of forecasting for other sports? Should the Steelers sign Bell to an extension?
Dan Szymborski
12:33
I've been working on some other things, though baseball tends to take priority
