I would argue that they got as much for one year of Alfredo Simon as they got for two years of Todd Frazier, which is just embarrassing.

Age old question: Which sport has more parity, Baseball or Football? Die hard fans of each sport always seem to answer with the one they're a fan of. I'm no different and firmly believe baseball is the absolute correct answer.
Dan Szymborski
12:36
Baseball easily. It's the nature of the game.
Eli

Josh Reddick - extended or traded? A's don't have much OF depth right now, so either makes sense.
Dan Szymborski
12:37
Traded, I expect.

Thoughts on the Ryan Howard, Manning and Harrison ped story?
Dan Szymborski
12:37
Hope they kept their receipts.
Joe

Where do the Reds go from here ?? Miserable start to the rebuild...
Dan Szymborski
12:37
Last place.

Was Joc Pederson's 2nd half last year a sign of things to come, or is 200 AB's too small of a sample size to make a judgment on?
Dan Szymborski
12:37
People got too excited about the early season then too depresseda bout the late season

I think the White Sox should just go all in and get Gordon and Desmond. What say ye?
Dan Szymborski
12:38
They should.

Does Heyward in CF have a higher WAR than Heyward in RF? Assume same hitting stats. Very curious if the + positional adjustment from RF to CF is enough to make up for the less elite defense
Dan Szymborski
12:38
In projection yes. ZiPS believes Heyward will adjust better than the average corner outfielder would.
Andrelton Simmons Big rig
12:39
I don't expect Tommy Pham to produce at a 125 wRC+ again, but should he be getting more consideration for a larger role with the Cardinals ?
Dan Szymborski
12:39
That's a little optimistic.
12:40
They'll sort through their random collection of interesting OFs this spring
TJ

Who would you bat lead-off for the Cubs , Zorbist ?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
Why not?

Why does it seem managers are reluctant to bat lefties back to back? Should they be against an elite righty?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
LOOGY

Are the Red Sox a World Series contender or do they still need better starting pitching behind Price?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
I think any halfway decent AL team is a World Series contender.
Devin
12:40
What kind of ceiling do you see for Kike Hernandez?
Dan Szymborski
12:41
Solidly above-average player, not a star

Do you see the price for pitching in terms of prospect to go down some from this ridiculous level at mid-season?
Dan Szymborski
12:41
No.

Twins rotation speculation: is deploying Trevor May as a reliever a better idea than as a starter?
Dan Szymborski
12:42
I probably would use him as a reliever unless I *really* need to use him in the rotation
The Cincinnati Kid

How often do YOU see what the projections spit out and say, "No way!" Like once on a 25-man roster? More, less?
Dan Szymborski
12:42
I don't really count. There are degrees.
Joe
12:42
what kind of trade value do you think Jay Bruce has ? Angels and Orioles seem like a fit.
Dan Szymborski
12:42
Not much.
12:43
He's been really lousy for two years now.
12:44
If Bruce were a free agent, I'd have to think long and hard if I wanted to sign him to a 1/13 deal.
I'm certainly not giving up anything of value
Teams can overpay when they have desperate needs, but the problem is, I'm not sure 2016 Jay Bruce can actually satisfy any such need.
12:45
It makes sense for a drowning man to overpay for a life preserver. It doesn't make sense for a drowning man to overpay for a sandwich.

Thoughts on Brewers rebuild?
