Just like every year, when they are done.

Rangers OF is suspect other than Choo. Do they rely heavily on Gallo and Mazara to hit well in order to compete?
Dan Szymborski
12:09
Hamilton's clearly getting first stab at the position.

Are the Reds done? Do you think they get someone to take Phillips, or better yet get him to agree to go, or Bruce?
Dan Szymborski
12:09
Phillips may be a done thing now. Don't know why Bruce isn't gone yet.
Truth is, Reds are a lousy organization these days.

Do you like or love George Springer this season? Correa got the hype last season (deservedly so), but it seems like Springer is on the cusp of a 30/30 campaign if he stays healthy.
Dan Szymborski
12:10
I like him fine. I dont' think Springer gets 30 stolen bases.

Pretend you're the Rays GM. Which OF do you trade? What position are you looking to upgrade? What are you having for lunch?
Dan Szymborski
12:10
I sort it out in the spring.
Joe

Chances Mike Napoli can actually boost the Tribe offense?

Is it me, or does it seem like there are more FA available heading into February than usual?
Dan Szymborski
12:11
I don't think so - the fringes and relievers tend to get signed later
Nolan
12:11
Is the Cardinals gamble that Piscotty becomes the new Jason Heyward a good one to take?
Dan Szymborski
12:11
It's their best current choice.

ZIPS hates the A's.....if ZIPS is right, should Beane start a rebuild (again)?
Dan Szymborski
12:11
I think they should. Beane's signings have been rather underwhelming.

Apparently the White Sox are "exploring" a trade for Andre Ethier. What would the White Sox have to give up to get him, and would it make more sense to just sign Fowler instead?
Dan Szymborski
12:12
I can't imagine much. Would be better to just sign Fowler, though.
Mick D
12:12
Any changes to projections for Aaron Hill or Jean Segura because of the trade? Any boost for either?
Dan Szymborski
12:12
Not really.
Ulysses Cantista

Do you do ZiPS for fictional rule 5 picks created by OOTP? I'm a hero and an inside joke.
The Dude of NY

Is it fair to say Addison Russell is a more useful as a *baseball player* than as a *fantasy baseball player*?
Dan Szymborski
12:12
I think so.
Mark Shapiro
12:12
What the hell do I do, Dan?
Dan Szymborski
12:13
You are the president of the Toronto Blue Jays.

If AJ Reed lives up to the hype of being the best bat in Milb and wins the starting job in ST, would that make the Astros the favorite in the AL?
Dan Szymborski
12:13
I think it well might - there really aren't any excellent teams in the AL
Joe
12:14
What's your favorite airport?
Dan Szymborski
12:14
The arriving one.

The Wil Myers projections seem either to project him as an atrocious 1B or are still built on him as a CF. Curious which it is? It the back-of-the-napkin figuring I did right that the offense projected + league avg 1B defense would make him about a 3.5WAR player?
Dan Szymborski
12:15
I haven't changed him to 1B yet.
Axe
12:15
Any teams at this point that strike you as headed for a particularly hard fall if a few key injuries pop up?
Dan Szymborski

Detroit

Prediction for where Gallardo and Fowler will end up? Baltimore makes a lot of sense for Fowler but not to give up the 14th pick in the draft...
Dan Szymborski
12:15
Some of Fowler's value is that he can at least fake CF. This isn't that valuable to the O's
As an O's fan, I want no part of Galalrdo
Gallardo

We won't know the answer for a few months but if Aaron Hill becomes a deadline commodity similar to Parra last year, the Segura trade has netted the Brewers 2 organization top 10 prospects. That begins to look like an excellent return, even before Chase Anderson is considered
