I swear to God if you do not turn off your LinkedIn notifications setting, I will go HAL 9000 on you
Dan Szymborski
2:49
I'm awaiting approval for like 80 people.
2:50
I don't check my linkedin much.
The truth is that national sports journalism isn't *that* big a world.
And since I've been around for awhile, I know most people anyway, so LinkedIn doesn't have quite as much networking value.

Is Gary Sanchez projected as a top-5 MLB catcher this season?
Dan Szymborski
2:52
Looks like it.
Gopherballs

That was not part of the deal

At the risk of sounding heartless - let's say Ventura had a decently sizable contract, and the tragedy happened in June. How would that work against the teams Lux Tax?
Dan Szymborski
2:52
I *think* it depends on whether they have to pay it out or not.

Which teams do you see as having their window of opportunity closing post-2017?

KC
I think Detroit's at the end of the rope.
O's may be soon.

Buster Posey is the best looking but Pence has the best body.
If Buster Posey becomes a full time 1b does he become a top 5 1b in baseball immediately?
Dan Szymborski
2:54
I don't think so. I have him projected at an OPS+ that would put him somewhere around 7th. So it dpeends on how much it improves his hitting and how good he is defensively full time
Sgt. Slaughter
2:54
Who would you rather have in your corner, The Big Boss Man or Sgt. Slaughter?
Dan Szymborski
2:54
Sgt. Slaughter. First, he's alive. And second, he can bring in the GI Joe characters to help.
2:55
Big Boss Man can bring in Akeem, but Sgt. Slaughter knows Snake Eyes and Flint
Sandy Kazmir

Would you rather have Logan Forsythe and Brock Stewart or just Brian Dozier?
Dan Szymborski
2:55
I think Forsythe and Stewart, but I don't think it's a slam dunk
Dave
2:55
JP Crawford or Amed Rosario?
Dan Szymborski
2:55
Crawford
Jeb

Did you like Akira?
Dan Szymborski

TETSUO!!!!!!!!!!
Outfield Fly Rule

What are the odds we can move Matt Kemp for anything at all? That contract scares me...
Dan Szymborski
2:56
I think he's still slightly movable to an AL team.

Leody Taveras came in at #35 in KLaw's top 100 prospects. Impressive for someone that young to land so high on the list. I'm curious to know your thoughts on him and his projections?
Dan Szymborski
2:56
Taveras comes lower in ZiPS.
2:57
The ZiPS Top 100 prospects comes out tomorrow!

I am not at work, however I might be the only one in the chat who is currently in a college class. Your chat is far more interesting than a Business Law Lecture.
Dan Szymborski
2:58
I will only answer questions that come in between now and the next 5 minutes if they're about the Uniform Commercial Code.
So if it's time-stamped as coming in between 2:58-3:03, it has to be on that subject.
Or anything else business law.

If given the choice between yogurt and Gustav Mahler, I pick Mahler, Dan.
Dan Szymborski
2:59
I didn't say yogurt was better than Mahler, I said I like yogurt more than Mahler did. Probably.
