I think he'll be OK. I'll check after the season.

Braves fan here, trying to remain hopeful. I think we have got to go out and get a guy who will turn this organization around. And that man is Moncada. Would Swanson, Albies, and Allard be enough to get Boston to pull the trigger on future STAR Moncada?

That's a little bit of an absurd price for Atlanta to pay.
Well, a lot absurd.

If the Nats declined Gio's option for next year what kind of payday do you think he would get?
Dan Szymborski
12:54
He'd get a decent payday. Again, the market sucks.
12:55
Which is why the Nats will pick up the option. There's nothing better in FA they can get for 2/24, I don't think
Dan

Trumbo get a QO?
Dan Szymborski
12:55
I believe so

How valuable would a player be if a he was an average defender and average hitter in a corner position, but stole 100 bases a year without getting caught?
Dan Szymborski
12:55
Given break even point, that's about 30-35 runs, so a 5-6 WAR player

What should the Cards do with Wacha and Rosenthal

Do you have a prediction for the Arizona GM spot?
Dan Szymborski
12:55
A terrible GM or a good GM who gets saddled by a terrible ownership

Being non-tendered is the worst. Once, Wendy's forgot to put my tenders in my bag, ""leaving me non-tendered. It was hurtful.

Do the Mets load up this offseason or take a step back? Should they go all out for one or two last runs with this window? Upgrade at 1B, 3B and/or Catcher?
Dan Szymborski
12:56
I think they awkwardly beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

KC should trade Hosmer to an old school GM
Dan Szymborski

AKA Arizona?

Do you golf for the aggravation or the alcohol?
Dan Szymborski
12:56
For golf cart driving tricks

I know it's playoff baseball, but isn't 3:55 way too long for the Nats and Dodgers to play an 8 and a half inning long, 5-2 baseball game? I know it wasn't exactly well played and there were a ton of base runners, but sheesh. And I say this as someone who was at the game!
Dan Szymborski
12:57
It was way too long! It was like they rebooted Circus of the Stars and all the acts were Steve Trachsel.

People complain the first round of the NBA playoffs is boring because the top seeds nearly always advance. Those same people complain about the LDS being 5 games because of the unpredictability and the high number of top seeds going down. Which is it?
Dan Szymborski
12:57
*Are* they the same people?
Dan
12:57
Think we will see any high priced veterans on the move? A Price, Heyward, Greinke or someone similar?
Dan Szymborski
12:57
Maybe Greinke, doubt on others
Rob

What would be a reasonable offer if Boston were to go after Sale? Could Chicago get Devers, Moncada and Kopech??
Dan Szymborski
12:58
I think they coudl, but the White Sox I think would turn that down.
Hank
12:58
Last week you said Moncada and Kopech would be a fair return for Freddie Freeman. That seems a bit silly, he's 27 years old with 5 years of contract left with a 20-21 million AAV, he's the best 1st baseman in baseball and a MVP caliber... So Mike Trout could be had for just Benintendi, Moncada, and Kopech?
Dan Szymborski
12:58
Let's see, best first baseman in baseball?
12:59
Recent fWAR 1B standings for Freeman, 1st, 10th, 7th, 4th. I guess if you think that we're going into some weird Groundhog Day where everyone just repeats their 2016 over and over again.

Should Kyle Kendrick be a HOFer?
Dan Szymborski
1:01
The Kyle Kendrick of commissioners, Bowie Kuhn, is already in, so why not?
Peter

Washington could get the players to do lines of coke, Braves might be pumped up enough to contend in 2017
Julio Pepper

My friend Maxamuz and I were discussing: who says no, Kluber for Moncada?
Dan Szymborski
1:01
Think the Indians do.
Pennsy

It would be easier to steal a base if you could overrun it like first. But that's not the rule! Having to maintain contact with the bag is part of what makes stealing 2nd or 3rd difficult. If you're unable to maintain contact with the bag you must have been overrunning to make up for a bad jump, or just executed a bad slide altogether.

My playoff beard is getting damn itchy.
