Sorry guys, a few minutes late!

Giants supposedly feel ok with Nunez at third, and the Dodgers need to cut their debt. If not one of those two, who could emerge as a suitor for Justin Turner?
Dan Szymborski
12:08
I acutally wouldn't put it past the Red Sox to short-circuit the whole Shaw/Sandoval question and just sign Turner.
12:09
I still think however that if the Dodgers are going to try to get Turner in somehow.
A lot of the usual suspects have good 3B situations.

How many teams has ZiPS put at the +50 war threshold that the Cubs seem to have surpassed in your 2017 projections? How rare is it?
Dan Szymborski
12:09
Extremely.
12:10
I expect the Cubs to have the best win projection of any team ZiPS has projected.

Could you imagine a match between the Cubs and Dodgers were the Cubs pry De Leon away by helping the Dodgers with multiple positional holes? Soler + Candelario + Zagunis? Or Something involving Candelario and Happ?
Dan Szymborski
12:10
It's actually less crazy than it sounds.
But I don't think the Dodgers make a blockbuster that doesn't help their payroll, given MLB's strong hints that they have to watch the arbitrarily enforced debt limits.

Does Cutch get traded? What team is most likely to land the former MVP?
Dan Szymborski
12:11
Not this winter.
Q-Ball
12:11
Is it me, or has it been really, really slow in terms of MLB transaction news since Turkey Day?
Dan Szymborski
12:11
It has been.
12:12
The lockout rumblings make teams feel a bit less urgent.
Marc
12:12
The Mets decision to give the QO to Walker was ________?
Dan Szymborski
12:12
reasonable.
12:14
I would absolutely sign Walker to a 1/17.2 million contract if I'm a contender, even if I *know* he would turn it down and I score a draft pick.
JP
12:14
It seems I missed the yearly ZiPS pick the first team trivia question. What was it? Also will you tell us the next three teams in the queue? Thanks.
Dan Szymborski
12:14
I dont' remember actually!
Blue Jays are next. That's all I shalls ay.

How real are the Dodgers financial constraints that were reported over the weekend? Was the spending spree of the last few years driven by prior FO, or ownership?
Dan Szymborski
12:14
Mixed results. MLB's stance with the debt seems to be a little arbitrary.
CamdenWarehouse
12:14
Which Jean Segura is closer to reality: 2016 or 2014/15?
Dan Szymborski
12:14
In-between
Mike
12:14
Chances Cubs are actually serious about getting fowler back? I love him and would definitely miss the lead off bat but that OF is extremely crowded.
Dan Szymborski
12:15
I think they're serious, but not desperate. They won't go into some crazy bidding war.
Q-Ball
12:15
26-man roster and removal of the QO draft pick penalty seem inevitable in this CBA...is that right?
Dan Szymborski
12:15
I hate to say inevitable with the CBA, but I think that 26-man is now likely and some modifying of the QO (not elimination) is also likely.
MLB's insistence on the international draft is complicating CBA predictions.
Steve
12:15
What will Conforto's role with the Mets be next season?
Dan Szymborski
12:16
Awkward ignorance of his existence.
Yeah, right now he's slated to start in left, but I can't believe the Mets would want to really go with Granderson in center primarily.
12:17
I would not be surprised to see Fowler end up in New YOrk and Conforto traded.
Marc
12:17
Who says no: Sale and a RP for Glasnow Bell Hanson plus a 20-30th ranked Pirates prospect?
Dan Szymborski
12:17
Both, oddly enough.

What does a hypothetical 20 zWAR projection look like? As simple as just doubling Mike Trout's 2013 stats, or something weirder?
Dan Szymborski
12:18
Hmm, let's see.
