Now, fill up the glasses with treacle and ink and anything else that's pleasant to drink!
The chat has started.

Save us, Dan, from the worthless wasteland Twitter has become.... tell us about your cats.

I think they're all sleeping. It's 2 PM, so Galileo should be appearing any minute to sit on my lap and start buttering me up for dinner.

Greg Holland to the Rockies. Good or bad for the Rockies? Good or bad for Greg Holland?
Dan Szymborski
2:02
I'm optimistic. I'm not sure it's the best environment to rehab your value, but he'll probably help the Rockies.
The Rockies are tricky - the players aren't really that bad and you'd ideally think they had a really bright future. I just have little faith in the front office.

Rosales is better than Lowrie, yes? Can the A's trade Jed! or is he just getting cut?
Dan Szymborski
2:03
I'd say Rosales is a bit better at this point in all likelihood.
I can't imagine he gets much in a trade.

Is Brian Kenny a sabermetrician? I sometimes can't tell...
Dan Szymborski
2:03
It depends on semantics.
Is a sabermetrician then one who *calculates* the numbers and/or designs them.
Or is a sabermetrician also anyone who uses them heavily.

Dannnn! Unlike these ingrates I just want to know how you're doing, buddy.

Fine as far as I can tell. I do need to get a haircut.
Will probably get one tomorrow.
I'm speaking at my high school next week and I don't want to look like fat Beethoven.

Odds Royals sign one of the following to DH: Brandon Moss, Chris Carter, Pedro Alvarez

Maybe 2-1 against?

Whoo. This is finally up. I was afraid it was neglected again as part of Cistulli's extended heel arch.
I can't quit you.

Can Danny Duffy be a Cy Young contender?
Dan Szymborski
2:05
Yes, but not the favorite.

Will you join me in seeking retribution against Carson Cistullli?
Dan Szymborski
2:05
Always.

How well do you do in fantasy baseball and do you mostly rely on zips to do your fantasy baseball projections or do you adjust it manually based on what zips doesn't know? Thanks.
Dan Szymborski
2:07
I do fairly well. I use projections as a base and make my own judgments after that.

Digital Dandy personal question- Favorite minor league hat? Favorite hat that you own?
Dan Szymborski
2:07
My favorite minor league hat was the Butte Copper Kings hat.
It looks like a prime Brian Blessed about to beat the crap outta someone.
My favorite hat is my old black porkpie which is my drinking hat.

Sad week for the Royals. How does it work on the business side when a tragedy like this happens? Do agents and other teams stand down on business with the organization until someone tells them it is ready to move forward again?
Dan Szymborski
2:08
Honestly, I'm not sure if there's a playbook for this kind of thing.

Any ideas why the Dodgers can't get an ASG? 7 year longer drought than the next longest
Dan Szymborski
2:09
No idea.

Asst GM Avg Salary, if you had to guess??
Dan Szymborski
2:09
I've never asked because it's a bit gauche, but I'd guess in the 100-125K range.

With Glasnow slipping a bit w/prospect rankers, and Josh Bell having a lot of the "DH-only" talk start to stick to him, should the Pirates ramp up efforts to package both as part of a bigger deal for other needs (i.e. a Quintana), before Opening Day?
Dan Szymborski
2:10
I'm not sure I'd want to trade *both* as part of the package.
