Speed round Westworld theory: Everybody is a human. Advances in neurological manipulation (or even hypnosis) make it possible to control others. Hosts can die over and over again thanks to Star Trek like advances in medicine. How plausible is this on a scale of 1 to Bo Derek?

I don't know, it's on my viewing list but haven't watched yte

Avid baseball fans like Cistulli will clean up HoF voting once he gets his 10 years in

The nerdy analysis types are still a miniority, even among new members

How can anybody stand hearthstone with all the dumbass animation delays an similar nonsense? I watched a friend play one game and wanted to smash his tablet over his head.

I'm not necessarily diminishing Theo's talent for building from the bottom, but could he succeed to the level he did in BOS/CHC, if he had the financial restrictions of say TB/OAK/KC/etc?
Dan Szymborski
1:12
It would've been tougher, but I think he'd have been successful

My mistake for coming to FanGraphs for actual baseball analysis. I forgot all you do here is numbers. RE: Arenado/Seager
Dan Szymborski
1:12
Then make a case
You just made an assertion.
The numbers indicate both are reasonable.
here's the thing: Baseball games are solely decided by definable events within the game.
1:13
You argued that it was an outrage an added no argument, no insight, no point of view, that would indicate Arenado's some horrible snub.

What if the fan in question who must deal with impending mediocrity is 18 and also does not want to drink?

Can a former MLB player become a voting member of the BBWAA?
Dan Szymborski
1:14
No reason they can't
Dirk Hayhurst isn't in the BBWAA but I expect he'll be at some point
1:16
I'm not seeing any ex-players on the badge list
but there's no rule against it

Would you eat a "smoothie" of mashed potatoes, gravy, and turkey? Also it comes in a cheese-wiz spray bottle, and it's just cheese flavored.
Dan Szymborski
1:16
No
why are you epople so gross?
JT
1:16
That was a joke, because Carson not watching baseball despite being employed by a baseball blog is humorous, also you hate Cistulli. Get with the program Dan

What's your outlook on A.J. Reed? Is there a middle of the order hitter there, or has a fatal flaw been exposed?
Dan Szymborski
1:17
I think people too quickly take small sample sizes seriously
See Nelson Cruz 2006/2007

Folks that complain about "numbers" and "math" are the folks that can't understand "numbers" and "math".

I feel for you Dan, I recently tried debating that Andrew Miller is just as good as Britton, and on some teams, Miller might be the better option. So many orange tinted glasses throwing around unverifable theories. It dan get frustrating.
Dan Szymborski
1:18
The Cy Young thing with Britton got me on a lot of O's fans ship lists

I feel like Dirk Hayhurst will be the type of voter that people DON'T want in the BBWAA. He'll use his vote to just make a point of some kind.
Dan Szymborski
1:18
I don't think he would
