Hey guys! Sorry I'm late, Time-Warner was doing some work on the block and I was internetless for a few hours.
Uh oh, it appears to be just me.

How many wins will the Twins have?
Dan Szymborski
12:17
I have him in mid 70s, but they could be higher.

What is "System and Compressed Memory" and why is it such a jerk to my RAM and disk drive?
Dan Szymborski
12:18
Can you send me the whole image of yoru RAM usage on Twitter or something?

How do you see Adam Wainwright rebounding this year? I know his K rate has been declining but he's rumored to be bringing back his change up.
Dan Szymborski
12:18
I think he'll be fine.

I know you don't make decisions for the site, but have you heard anything from David A on when the Zips projections get attached to player profiles?
Dan Szymborski
12:18
David's not why they aren't up - I haven't submitted updates. I've been working on projects the last two weeks and haven't updated all the new teams.
HappyFunBall
12:21
so how many ZIPS projections are left?
Dan Szymborski
12:21
None, I just need to update the players that switched teams.

How much of a chance Correa ISN'T the best SS in 2016?
Dan Szymborski
12:22
Even if he's the best going forward, in any given year, somebody can beat him, like Lindor or someone.
Cory S.
12:23
Danny boy, which of Elias, Owens, or Johnson seem most likely to be the main lefty out of the Red Sox' BP?
Dan Szymborski
12:23
I don't think any of those 3 will be the primary
hey
12:24
i like your last name
Dan Szymborski
12:24
Thanks?

How much crossover do you see between the sports geeks and the gaming geeks? I have been enjoying your Hearthstone coverage over at ESPN and got to thinking that the data/gaming geek type is probably pretty common.
Dan Szymborski
12:25
There's quite a bit of crossover

If I remember right, you have a fan rooting interest in the Orioles. What do you see as a ceiling this year for Jonathan Schoop and his prodigious power?
Dan Szymborski
12:25
I wouldn't be shocked if he slugged .500 and had an OBP below .300.
B
12:25
What's your view on Maikel Franco? Is he overhyped?
Dan Szymborski
12:26
To an extent in that he's unlikely to really be a star, but he ought to be a fixture for a long time.

Jays have a shot at 90 wins?
Dan Szymborski
12:26
Every team in the AL has *some* shot at 90, though some longer than others. Blue Jays are still in the top half

My cat is a jerk. We had pretty good luck spraying him with a mister when he was being bad but now ow he quit giving a shit, I'll spray him directly in the face and he will just go back to clawing me with water dripping everywhere
Richard

I saw some optimistic news about C. Martinez last week. Any health related thoughts about him & Wacha ? Thanks
Dan Szymborski
12:27
Oops didn't answer first one.
Not doing a Lightning Round since I'm short on time because of the cable issues
12:28
(I started late, but my post-1:00 PM appointments can't move forward too)
So just shoot questions about whatever, but not too crazy (at least have a basis for thinking I can answer)
Punishments works poorly with cats. Redirection works better.
Like if they want to scratch a particular couch, put a new scratching post there and spray it with catnip scent and slowly mvoe the scratching post elsewhere as they get used to using it
12:29
Spraying a cat doens' tmake them not doing something, it makes them think you're an ass and they'll still do the behavior when you're not around

Miguel Sano or Hunter Pence - 2016 only
Dan Szymborski
12:29
Sano

12:29
Do you think any prospects are overhyped?
Dan Szymborski
12:30
Of course. There's never a point at which I (or anyone) is going to exactly agree with consensus.
PAR
12:31
But what is the estimate for when will ZiPS be ready? (I'm only asking for an estimate)
