I think they have a window and Frazier would be helpful, though I odn't know how steep a package the Reds will demand, push comes to shove

Cubs' will have 4 WS appearances in the next 4 years. You want the over or the under?
Dan Szymborski
12:11
Under

How much of Heyward's value would be negated by him playing center field as opposed to right? Going off that, how necessary do you think a Soler deal is this offseason? Thanks Dan
Dan Szymborski
12:12
I don't think much. COF-->CF moves tend to cost 10 runs a year relative to average at the position, with a differing spread based on speed of the corner outfield. ZiPS thinks Heyward will be decently above-average in center - he's not a slow guy.

Seeing as Charlie Morton can opt out of his contract, what do the Phillies get out of him?
Dan Szymborski
12:12
Hoping he'll hang around and eat innings so that games actually end.

Hey Dan, any chance the Brewers deal Segura and hold down the fort until Arcia is ready in June?
Dan Szymborski
12:13
New front offices are always tricky, especially when the old guy with authority has a new position. The Brewers don't seem that into a rebuild as they should be

Adrian Beltre projection. Over/Under 112 OPS+?
Dan Szymborski
12:13
Rangers are Wednesday so no need to leak anything
12:14
I usually only release projections early if there's some relevant news angle or slant that makes the projection interesting for me
Otherwise, I'll get hundreds of requests a day.

Odds Appel turns into Jake Arrieta 2.0? +/- 5%?
Dan Szymborski
12:15
I dunno, 5%? He has a pedigree, but he's just not that great at pitching against minor leaguers.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Dan.. now, onto the shoe... Do the Dodgers make a smart deal that strengthens their pen as the Chapman deal was supposed to?..
Dan Szymborski
12:15
The Dodgers are an opportunistic team, so they'll certainly be looking for ways to strengthen the team.

What is the most reasonable upgrade for the Mets in center field? Dendard Span, Will Venable or somebody else? Also thanks for the wonderful chats
Dan Szymborski
12:15
The best CF upgrade for the Mets is the patience to do nothing.

Cubs fans seem to believe that the 'talk' about Schwarber playing any defensive position is just going to take some time.. Should the Cubs forget that poor lie and make a deal that send the big bat to the AL where he can be a DH and brings back the CF or TORP they need?
Dan Szymborski
12:17
Depends on the deal. Any player is tradable in the right deal and non-tradable in the wrong one.. I don't think they have a CF problem.

How do you think the Tigers patch their LF hole?

If a team signs Desmond and puts him in the outfield should it work out differently than Hanley did last year?
Dan Szymborski
12:20
I don't think it's a great comaprison. Hanley was way worse in left than you'd expect. But in Desmond's case, there's no point to signing him if you're not plaing him in the infield

Carlos Gonzalez to the Tigers for Matt Boyd, who hangs up first?
Dan Szymborski
12:20
Rockies, who I think tend to be deluded about the value of their players.

What do you think the biggest mismatch between any 2 MLB players in a game of chess would be? Besides Ohlendorf vs. Papelbon.
Dan Szymborski
12:20
Breslow vs. anybody?

What do you think is the most unpredictable sport: Hockey, Baseball, Football or Basketball? Rank them please! Thank you.
Dan Szymborski
12:21
Baseball, Basketball, Football, do not have the requisite knowledge about hockey
