What would a WSox trade for Abreu look like? Top 50 pitching prospect plus a could of lottery tickets?
Dan Szymborski
12:53
That's probably about right. Back part of top 50

what are teams going to do with a 26th roster spot
Dan Szymborski

Relief

Don't think the Nats Zips have come out yet, but at this point should Ryan Zimmerman be a bench player? Could fill in at 1b and LF (and maybe RF), but a lot of $$ to ride the pine.
Dan Szymborski
12:54
Nats ZiPS are first team so no sense in leaking yet!
Cistulli, Devourer of Light and Goodness, already has them for instance.

Any update on David Szymborski's shopping habits? Has he ordered anything interesting lately, or are you expecting a flood of confirmation emails next week following Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Dan Szymborski
12:55
David Szymborski has not ordered anything with my email address recently.
Don't know if it's because he figured out or if he read the gift card.
For those unware, David Szymborski in North Carolina has been ordering Nerf gun from Wal-Mart and Amazon with my Gmail address that he thinks are his.
12:56
So I reset his Amazon password, hit cancel on his nerf order, then re-ordered with his card with a gift note informing him that DSzymborski@gmail.com is not his email address.

If Turkey came in a cheese-wiz spray bottle, and was a frothy paste of poultry...would you try it?
Dan Szymborski
12:56
NO

I'd there anything in the Orioles farm system which could entice the Pirates to move Cutch?
Dan Szymborski
12:56
No.

Should the Dbacks trade Segura? Do you see there being a market for him? Dodgers and Yankess stand out.
Dan Szymborski
12:56
No, but yes.
Carter Gary

Did Goldschmidt peak or can hold it together this year?
Dan Szymborski
12:57
May have peaked, but he should still be excellent
Ross Not The Boss
12:57
Next competing team to collapse (i.e. Athletics-2015, Twins, KC-2016)?
Dan Szymborski
12:57
Blue Jays are in a very dangerous place.
Though Tigers will fall apart first.
(Which I think they realize)
Julio Pepper
12:58
Could they get Benintendi or Moncada + for Freeman?
Dan Szymborski
12:58
I think Dombrowski would be more willing than the previous crowd
Not both of course
Tony

Lets say the White Sox do a complete tear down and rebuild. Can they get enough in return to immediately have a top 5 farm system by trading all their best MLB assets?
Dan Szymborski
12:58
I think yes.

Boston never intentionally tanked. They had 3 horrible seasons in four, sure, but they also didn't pay Hanley and Panda $200 million to produce negative 4 war in 2015.

The Cubs chose not to take a 71 win team and try to add on it with no farm in place.
Julio Pepper
12:58
Hamels came with Matt Harrison too.

What should the Cardinals do with Alex Reyes to start 2017?
Dan Szymborski
12:59
Rotation, period.

Joe Panik posted an 89 wRC+ in 2016 with a .245 BABIP. This was propped up by the worst batting average on line drives in baseball. In 2015 panik posted a 136 wRC+ on the back of a .330 BABIP. Do you take the over or under on his depth charts projected 104 wRC+?
Dan Szymborski
12:59
That looks about right honestly
Andrew

Assuming full health, who wins NL East next year? Mets or Nats?
Dan Szymborski
12:59
Nats still
Slew
12:59
Turkey or ham?
Dan Szymborski
12:59
On Thanksgiving it's gotta be Turkey

Why did the Yankees cut Eovaldi? Which team ends up with Eo?
