I will benintentionally pick the former.

Does your answer to Go Braves mean that Wheeler has more trade value than Gsellman?
Dan Szymborski
12:24
it's tough - there's likely to be a lot of variance in evaluation of Wheeler. We don't really *know* what his arm is like and even the Mets probably don't
JT

Lance berkman signed with the rangers like a year after bashing the team hard

Cameron thinks we'll see 9 figures for a reliever. Do you agree?
Dan Szymborski
12:24
No
5 Run Homer

Greg Holland. Discuss.
Dan Szymborski
12:25
The proper name is Greg Netherlands.
Kyler
12:25
Dansby Swanson looked good in his stay with the big club at the end of the year. Chances he's a 2+ win player this year?
Dan Szymborski
12:25
Quite good
Q-Ball
12:25
Aren't Jansen and Turner inevitably going to stay on the Dodgers? Dodgers have need and a mountain of cash, and both players have said they like L.A. This should happen, right?
Dan Szymborski
12:25
I think it's very likely they retain.

Do you feel that Kang has a 5+ WAR season or two in him if he can stay healthy? 40 homeruns?
Dan Szymborski
12:25
Probably a little too aggressive for me.
12:26
Gotta see if he can stay healthy and remember, he turns 30 early next season
I'd be more comfortable saying one than two
Three Hamburgers
12:26
Trey Amburguey has an 80 name tool, no? Asking for Steve Martin.
Dan Szymborski
12:27
Amburgey-Bargy was a Squeeze album.

Think the Orioles open up the wallet for someone like Reddick? Rickard/Reddick platoon in RF sounds nice. Or are we looking at a not so nice platoon of Bourn/Rickard.
Dan Szymborski
12:27
I would really hope the Orioles never go into an offseason in which significant time next year for Rickard is a Plan A.
12:29
One year platoon splits are essentially worthless - Rickard's minor league platoon splits are fairly normal, even slightly to the smaller side than typical.
And I don't think Reddick signs a deal with a team with the intention of platooning him.
Zonk

With Ruben Amaro Jr. and Dave Stewart gone, what FO now do we direct our sabermatic bullying at?
Dan Szymborski
12:29
It's wide open! Probably Rockies
Sharp
12:29
Who do you take right now from the Pirates outfield (given contract and everything)? Is it possible that McCutchen is the least desirable of the three?
Dan Szymborski
12:29
Yes
12:30
Not just possible, is. I'd trade less for McCutchen than I would for Marte of Polanco.
Gopherballs
12:30
What do you think will be the biggest change to the final CBA?
Dan Szymborski
12:30
I t hink in the end they decide to just tinker around the edges.
AM
12:30
Bigger FA contract offer: Chapman, Jansen or Melancon?
Dan Szymborski
12:30
Chapman
Minty
12:30
Do you have more hope for Baez or Heyward at the plate?
Dan Szymborski
12:30
Baez
Zonk
12:30
What teams should consider shifting to rebuild mode, from contention mode?
Dan Szymborski
12:30
White Sox definitely
12:31
Probalby Tigers, they're already threaten to retool, but I don't think they have the assets for that anymore.
Erik
12:31
Which non playoff team spends the most money this off-season? Are they also the non playoff team most likely to make it next year?
Dan Szymborski
12:31
Yankees I think. They have more money to play with and had to be unusually responsible at the trade deadline for the Levine bunch.
Rex
12:32
Out of curioisity- at this point, what do you think the odds are of Asdrubal Cabrera's 8.5 million 2018 club option being exercised ?
Dan Szymborski
12:32
Decent actually
