1B. Despite the homers, Napoli was hardly great and hope they do be a little more ambitous than that

Sale for Urias and Verdugo a good start for a trade?
Dan Szymborski
12:42
If that's a start, Dodgers probably don't do it. If they would, they'd probably have Cole Hamels right now.

Remember the 2005 O's outfield? http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/BAL/2005.shtml - that was rough

Aside from the obvious prizes in Sale and Quintana, are their other White Sox vets with trade value? Frazier, Abreu, perhaps?
Dan Szymborski
12:42
Frazier has some trade value, though it's obviously dropped.
12:43
I'm not sure the White Sox will trade Abreu if they're not bowled over and I don't think they'd be bowled over.

With Darvish leaving after '17 and no sure-thing SP prospects in the pipeline, chances TEX dangles Odor in a trade for a much-needed good young SP this offseason?
Dan Szymborski
12:43
I don't think so, they intend to win now.

I wanted to ask this last week but you were not around: Who wins the World Series?
Dan Szymborski
12:44
The winner of the World Series is the first team to win four games in a set of games against the other league's champion that can be extended up to seven games.

Does the player's union take a firm stand regarding earlier free agency/less suppression of pay for young players now that most, if not all, teams are paying free agents for what they are projected to produce as opposed to what the back of the baseball card says?
Dan Szymborski
12:44
No
Reality is the MLBPA is at its weakest point in nearly 40 years. If they get any major concessions to their side, I'd be surprised.

How early do you think about locking up the stars if you're the Astros? Correa, Springer, Altuve, Bregman.... can't have them all right?
Dan Szymborski
12:44
As soon as I can.

What type of return does a Wade Davis trade bring back?
Dan Szymborski
12:45
I think they could snag a prospect in the 30-50 range very easily and a couple extras.
Q-Ball
12:45
Jorge Soler figures to be available in trade. What trade value does he still have?
Dan Szymborski
12:45
Not much.
Vanimal

More likely Twin to get traded this off-season: Brian Dozier or Ervin Santana?
Dan Szymborski
12:46
Santana I think. Still remains to see just how much autonomy the new FO will have to trade Dozier
The Decadent Moose
12:46
Now I'm excited about the White Sox possible fire sale. What's the return on Sale? Future picks? Prospects? Established, but controlled MLB player? Dark Magumbo to add years to Reinsdorf's life?
Dan Szymborski
12:46
I expect the White Sox, if they did rebuild, given the current management/ownership, to focus more on near-majors high-floor/low-ceiling types.
Q-Ball
12:47
What do the Dodgers need to do this offseason?
Dan Szymborski
12:47
Use cashvantage to patch holes.
Kristen
12:47
With TEX's window possibly closing with Darvish and Lucroy gone after '17 and Beltre after '18, will/should TEX go into firesale mode at the deadline if they're out of it?
Dan Szymborski
12:47
If they're out of it, yes
Andrew

Arenado v. Machado?
Dan Szymborski
12:47
Machado by a slender hair.
Big Joe Mufferaw
12:47
Realistic % that Trout gets trade this off-season?
Dan Szymborski
12:47
5
Slew
12:48
Would you make the QO to Napoli?
Dan Szymborski
12:48
No
Andrew
12:48
How different is all this McCutchen talk now if he had had a typical season in 2016 (~6 WAR)
Dan Szymborski
12:48
Well, if things were different, they wouldn't be the same, no?
CamdenWarehouse
12:48
The Sox could probably still get more for Frazier than the Reds did
Dan Szymborski
12:49
Not exactly a high bar
Neil
12:49
What kind of player is Michael Conforto?! I can't figure it out
Dan Szymborski
12:49
Neither can the Mets since they're so impatient about actually finding out.
