I think they look more for specific developmental things than the performance itself.

Do the A's and Marlins match up on a Ozuna trade?
Dan Szymborski
12:33
Doesn't seem all that practical

Napoli's loss will be big for the Indians.. you see anyone they might target in his stead?
Dan Szymborski
12:33
Really, Napoli wasn't actually all that good.

So, once and for all, Dan...where is Andrew McCutchen in 2017, and whatt did the Bucs get out of it?
Dan Szymborski
12:35
I don't think the Bucs trade him this year, though I think they should

Gleyber Torres is destroying the AFL. Yankees have the best system in baseball?
Dan Szymborski
12:35
They certainly have a case. I'd actually say yes.

How impressed are you by Frankie Montas? Also, the Hill/Reddick trade was highway robbery; all of Holmes, Montas, and Cotton have looked exceptional since coming over.
Dan Szymborski
12:35
I'm a Montas fan.

In a potential White Sox-Nats trade involving Chris Sale, what would the Sox have to include to get Trea Turner along with Giolito, Robles and Fedde?
Dan Szymborski
12:35
I don't think this is happening.
12:36
It just doesn't match up to the Nats strengths and weaknesses.

True or false, the Braves late season surge will end up being one of the worse things that could have happened to them?
Dan Szymborski
12:37
True, if they do take it too seriously.
But Atlanta's in a very dangerous place.

How many team would be interested in ChiSox Abreau?
Dan Szymborski
12:37
There would be a good bit of interest

Theo has $50 million to spend and a roster without glaring holes. If you are Theo, what are you spending on?
Dan Szymborski
12:37
This isn't a good year to have $50 million to spend.
Mostly tinkering.
Julio Pepper

Not trading Freddie Freeman is unjustifiable right? What kind of haul could they get for him?
Dan Szymborski
12:38
They'd get a lot for him, and I think they really need to.
Yes, it's literally true the Braves have a chance to compete when they still have him
12:39
But what it comes down to is it only take a year or two of rebuilding and Freeman bringing no real practical utility to really tank a player's value
Joe Don

Rangers' FO is trying to sustain consistent, sustained results over the long haul, vs the now-popular tank-and-rebuild model of BOS, CHC, PHI, ATL etc. Is their approach even possible any more?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
It is possible wh en you have a good MLB system and a good minor league system simultaneously.
The problem is when teams try to do it without having one of those things first.

Orioles offseason looks to head on the same direction as always. Sign fringe players, wait for prices to drop and jump on those left in late January. My guess is O's bring in Iannetta, Suanders, Bourne and Bass on one year deals and let Wieters/Trumbo walk. Very post-2014-esque. Do you see this senario as most likely or would you peg last years spending spree likely to continue?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
What would you want to spend spree on practically speaking outside of Cespedes?

What does ZiPS do with Thames's Korea line?
Dan Szymborski
12:41
We have a decent number of churning at various levels. I get roughly AA for KBO

If the MLBPA was hypothetically interested in shortening service time in the next CBA, would they be able to get it done without a strike?
Dan Szymborski
12:41
No
Or they'd have to give up something MAJOR
Kiermaier's Piercing Blue Eyes
12:41
If the rosters expand to 26, who benefits most? Part-time players and people with big platoon splits?
Dan Szymborski
12:42
People who like watching stupid relief pitcher shuffling
Harry Truman was a Haberdasher

Hamels w/ 4 yrs control netted Eickhoff, Thompson, Alfaro, Williams...seems like good comp for Sale w/ 3yrs control...solid return but hardly in realm of Giolito/Moncada/Benintendi/etc...is this because Phils opted for diversification whereas Sox might want top-end talent?
Dan Szymborski
12:42
Hamels had signifricant salary considerations.
