Kenta to the Dodgers is all but done, right? He was visiting the stadium over the weekend
Dan Szymborski
12:15
While it seems likely, lots of things have seemed likely.

Remember when everybody in the world was 100% sure Bernie Williams was going to sign with the Diamonbdbacks?
And I'm saving the off-topic questions for the Lightning ROund
Unless it looks like nobody's here, possibly caused by the weird time we started.

Simply looking for a gut reaction here: If you were Carlos Correa, what number would it take for you to sign a lifetime contract right now (same AAV every year, deal pays until you're 38)?
Dan Szymborski
12:17
$300 milion or GTFO.

John Jaso was the quintessential Pirates first baseman signing. What starter on the open market do you see as the quintessential Pirates signing? I say Mat Latos.
Dan Szymborski
12:18
Fister?

Let's say the A's have about $12M in budget room left, given that they were still in on Kaz. Does some free agent hitter drop low enough to take a 1/12 deal, try again next offseason?
Dan Szymborski
12:18
Not a good one.
Even Butler got 3/30 from the A's.

Mets and De Aza.. Very underwhelming this team it appears won't sign that big bat with that power pitching and dominant closer. Is my frustration justified?
Dan Szymborski
12:19
Not really - just how much, in reality, do you think you can upgrade over a Conforto/Lagares/Granderson 2016 outfield?
Cespedes was a beast in the second half, but htat's not also Cespedes's baseline expectation
The Mets are known to have owner-related financial issues
Is a horrid overpay to a good-not-great outfielder really the smartest thing for the organization to do?
12:20
Other needs will pop up at some point.
The Mets signing an expensive outfielder looks like a transaction in search of a need rather than the other way 'round.

Will someone ever solve the mystery of the Jorge Posada searching on Fangraphs?
Dan Szymborski
12:20
Not sure what it's referring to.
Guest

Surprised about Uptons market or lack thereof?
Dan Szymborski
12:20
There's not a perfect correlation between buzz and interest.
Jason

Can you explain the value of 1 WAR being around $8 million? A 3 WIN player should be paid $24/million/year? Seems excessive.
Dan Szymborski
12:21
I don't believe it's that high.
Zach

Fister is definitely a good choice, though some feel he doesn't quite fit the typical mold of a Pirates reclamation project.
Dan Szymborski
12:21
Molds are boring.,
Kip

What would a Nathan Eovaldi or Michael Pineda extension look like?
Dan Szymborski
12:21
Hard to say - both have too many questions to go nuts.

What does a Collin McHugh projection look like this year?
Dan Szymborski
12:21
Now we're just cheating.
Kip
12:22
Hey dan. Do you watch Rick and Morty?
Dan Szymborski
12:22
I have not.
Will Graham

Jorge Posada is always the most searched name every single day regardless of the situation
Dan Szymborski
12:22
Oh, news to me.

Red Sox finish in ___ place this year.

How dumb is Chris Davis for not taking the Orioles offer? I don't see a bunch of teams lining up for the Ryan Howard 2.0 type contract Boras is asking.
Dan Szymborski
12:23
Not going to call him dumb because when I do, life has a way of making it smart.
12:24
The Rockies giving QO to Cuddyer looked like the dumbest idea ever.
