Too early
RABBINICAL COLLEGE GUY

Do you agree with most of the ZIPS projections for the 2017 Red Sox?
Dan Szymborski
12:36
Sadly, yes.
(I'm an O's fan)

Justin O'Conner seems to make perfect sense for the Braves, right? Wouldn't he already be better than Recker or Gosewisch?
Dan Szymborski
12:37
Would be a good move.
Bill G
12:37
y Holidays, Dan! DMB league draft beginning next week, how would you pick between Mazara and Benintendi? Thanks!
Dan Szymborski
12:37
I have Benintentions.
Richard
12:37
What kind of triple slash would Matt Kemp have to put up to be useful starter given his defense?
Dan Szymborski
12:37
Something like a 130-135 OPS+ to be a league-average starter
Zihuatenejo
12:38
Assuming Dozier is not a fait accompli, who else might be an option for the Dodgers at 2B?
Dan Szymborski
12:38
Going with the one they brought.
Barry
12:38
Who will fill out Red Sox rotation 4th and 5th spots? Thanks
Dan Szymborski
12:38
They have a lot of options. I'd hope Buchholz option is just them being careful
Julio Pepper
12:38
Sure, but most of that came from the Sale move.
Dan Szymborski
12:38
ZiPS does have Shaw at like 10 WAR over the next 5 years.
Ian
12:38
What the heck do the Blue Jays do now?
Dan Szymborski
12:39
Try to get Bautista and especially EE back at a discount.
Brock Holt!
12:39
First to reach the playoffs, reds, brewers, padres or white Sox?
Dan Szymborski
12:39
Brewers
Thomas
12:39
Jameson Taillon is already an above average pitcher – is that right?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
It ain't crazy at all. The question was how good he'd be when he came back and he was pretty good!
Joe
12:40
So you're really just gonna cop out and NOT give us your NPB version of the Caminerooooooooo song?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
I already did on twitter!
Kare wa chō kōsoku de daremoga yorokobu, kare wa hearēzunda, rīdoburaddi no pitchingumashin! CAMINERO! CAMINERO!
12:41
Also,

Did i miss the ZiPS for Locke in Miami? lol even that homer-repressing dome cant save him.
Dan Szymborski
12:41
Trust me, you're not missing them at all.

Carson should really add the comp explanation to the posts. You seem to get the question each week. Make Carson earn his pay!
Dan Szymborski
12:42
Carson earns his pay by absorbing the souls of the recently deceased after his blood magicks have been executed.
Marc
12:42
I am not a Yankees fan. I am not an Os fan. But it angers me beyond belief that Mussina is not a HOFer by now. HOW?!?!
Dan Szymborski
12:42
Me = Angry
Joe
12:42
Wait, would you really vote for Trevor Hoffman over Curt Shilling?
Dan Szymborski
12:42
We can't clear off Schilling this year. We *can* clear off Hoffman.
12:43
My goal is to maximize the guys we get in and that involves making it so that there really only are 10 legitimate candidates.
And we can't do that without clearing off a net of four or five guys *before* the yearly candidates come in.
Sandy Kazmir

Speed round: Would you rather be a Fartasaurus or alive during the 22nd century?
Dan Szymborski
12:43
Latter.
12:44
Future games make me sad when I realize I'm dead.
