Why am I starting giving ABs to Adonis Garcia over young guys like Rio Ruiz, Jace Peterson, or even Colin Walsh? Couldn't Adonis bring back a low level prospect?

I show up at 1:15 and I'm late? What the shit, Dan?

Just how much better is Betts than Rendon, injuries aside? Both are excellent defenders, so I can't imagine it's waaaay better.
Dan Szymborski
2:32
Get a real time zone.

Is it possible for a rebuilding team to add too many unimpressive but not terrible veterans? If so, how close did the Phillies come to that line this year?
Dan Szymborski
2:32
Yes. Phillies didn't go crazy like the Braves.
Randy Savage
2:32
Having trouble deciding between keeping David Price or Jacob DeGrom. ZiPS has them pretty much the same on a rate basis, but with Price for more innings, but Price is 3 years older. Which way do you lean?
Dan Szymborski
2:32
Grommash in fantasy, Price in real life.

All I can think about now is Guile whispering "-cautious boom-" as he lets a small disk of energy fly at something like a bothersome insect in his living room.

Soon. Would've been up already but I was too sick.

Would the Reds consider trading Votto this year? He still offers a decent amount of surplus value and the Reds farm system desperately needs a shot in the arm.
Dan Szymborski
2:33
No

At what point does Milwaukee just give Ryan Braun away as a salary dump?
Dan Szymborski
2:34
I think they're being picky, they could trade him for something if they wanted to

Calvin Cueless invented Calculus. Leibniz beat him up outside his house. Newton witnessed it and blackmailed Leibniz to include his name. #NotAlternativeFactsButTheTruth

Does the methodology of the projections evolve as the game of baseball evolves?
Dan Szymborski
2:34
Why not?
Matt
2:34
Dan! Sorry I'm late. This new time takes some getting used to. Oh, by the way - I missed you.
Dan Szymborski
2:34
I was here Thursday?

This year? Fairly long. Even if something bad happens to Ramos, team probably uses Ziegler next.
