Yes

Dan, should the Braves go ahead and trade Swanson? I mean we don't wanna waste any of his good years even if they are cheap salaries.. We could widen the basket of prospects we already have. Albies takes Swanson's spot.
Dan Szymborski
1:20
He's young enough that his good years are likely to be relevant

So is the players' stance absolutely no international draft?
Dan Szymborski
1:20
Not absolute, but they want something serious more than a few players not getting QOs.

Do you really think the Braves will be big spenders after the 2018 season? I don't see it, I disagree with your response to the DraftPick/Turner question.
Dan Szymborski
1:21
It's the time that makes sense.
Are we arguing should or will?
Hank

Why are International prospects essentially free agents and can talk to all teams and get any kind of contract they want, while actual MLB Draft players have no power essentially? Makes zero sense. How in the hell is it right for a Swanson or Moniak to get 6-7 million while Moncada gets 30+ mil.
Dan Szymborski
1:21
It isn't,b ut the solution isn't to screw everyone equally.
1:22
And the thing is, those big international free agents instantly become union members on the 40-man roster, draft picks don't.

So you think if the owners wanted a salary cap there would not be a strike by this group of players?
Dan Szymborski
1:22
There would be, but I think they lose this time.

You must not have gotten MLB's replay memo. This system is "unique" and has "charm"

A+ on your Angle's 30 for 30 title. I think I might have just pooped myself a little.

Is it weird I'm oddly hoping for a 2 month lockout and an insane Feburary of trades and signings.

Covering Overwatch and Hearthstone, I at least have some things to keep me busy
Dominik

do you think schwarber at his peak is a 4 war player? no good defense but if he hits for a 900 Ops he can do that, right?
Dan Szymborski
1:23
It's very possible, but we need to see how non-sucky he can get his D

Why do we care about the HOF so much?
Dan Szymborski
1:24
We love baseball, we love the people who play baseball, and we want there to be an honor sufficient to reward the best baseball players we've seen.

Any chance Conforto ends up with the Cubs?
Dan Szymborski
1:24
Probably no
But nothing's really zero.

Have you done ZiPS for Shohei Otani?
Dan Szymborski

Yeah, but I'm hoarding that one for now
Matt K

Haven't heard anything about adding the DH to the NL in this round of CBA talks. Surprising?
Dan Szymborski
