What are your thoughts on realigning the MLB to two divisions, based on country?
Dan Szymborski

A 29 team US division and a 1 team Canadian division seems awkward

I see Eddie Gamboa and read Eddie Gaedel. Trying to imagine him as a knuckleballer.

do you love your cats more than Eno loves sandwiches?
Dan Szymborski
3:01
I think so - I pay to feed my cats and not eat them and Eno eats his sandwiches

Why does everyone spell Ohtani, Otani? Look at the back of his Jersey! Also is Shohei Ohtani translated to English mean Showme the Money?
Dan Szymborski
3:01
Translations are weird.
I follow Wikipedia drama due to entertainment value
3:02
Lviv vs. Lvov and Ivory Coast vs. Côte d'Ivoire are two of the most drama-filled situations ever.
3:03
There was also this guy who got banned who used to cause endless drama in Japanese translations
based on l vs. r in translated managa

Now that Dave Stewart has been exiled from Arizona, who has the least saber-friendly front office, or do those not exist anymore?
Dan Szymborski
3:04
Miami?
Someone's always going to be least

odds Shelby Miller gets remembered for his career, instead of being on 1 end of a lop-sided deal?
Dan Szymborski
3:04
Swanson would have to be a bust

What kind of suspension is Kang looking at? Similar to Aroldis last year?
Dan Szymborski
3:05
I'm honestly not sure

Over/Under on the grade Brad will get in that MATLAB class he's totally not paying attention in. 78%?

Asked this of your D&D partner, but curious for your take. I know they’re competing with 29 other clubs, but it feels odd given this market and their need that the O’s didn’t pick up a 5th starter of some kind. (And now Tillman is out for a stretch.) My paranoid side is feeling like the O’s are going to tank in order to force a rebuild, but that’s not real, right? Do I need to get a tinfoil hat?
Dan Szymborski
3:05
They're not going to tank, I don't think
The O's, like the Royals, had a tough road this offseason in that the stuff they needed wasn't much avaiable

Dan Szymborski

Who would oppose taking a break in the middle of the season to play the WBC (as some people have suggested; similar to what the NHL does for the olympics): the owners or the players union?
Dan Szymborski
3:06
ME

Rickey had 172 SBA, in 1972.... What have you done today?!?!? ;)

Lviv is just incorrect. 59 is actually LIX

Is Jacoby Jones playing for the Tigers in September this year?
Dan Szymborski
3:06
That's JaCoby, lepton.
3:07
OK, let's get the Lightning Round going.
The premise is simple. In the Lightning Round, I can only answer all those stupid off-topic questions you were thinking of all this time. And I have to answer them, with the usual exceptions (work-related, very personal, politics at my discretion) even if I have absolutely no relevant knowledge of the subject.
3:08
And this continues until I catch up or get bored.
AND GO

Randy Orton has been trolling the Wyatt family all this time, right? It was all part of his plan to out-crazy the crazy people, break up the family, and win the belt from Bray at Wrestlemania, right?
Dan Szymborski
3:08
Seems reasonable

What do you think about the Hearthstone announced nerfs?
