Who is the first manager to get fired this season?

Ausmus still can't feel safe.

If you want goofiness from an actual MLB catcher, Cervelli is an 80 grade goofball

I saw that OOTP is officially using ZIPS as their rating system. Just wanted to say congrats and say how excited I am for this!
Nick
12:45
I didn't know you were such a big piece of OOTP. Thanks for helping put together a great game... you digital dandy
Dan Szymborski
12:45
It's just the underlyign ratings.
ZiPS is more extensive a part of Diamond Mind.

Do you think Starlin Castro can revert back to 2014 form?
Dan Szymborski
12:45
Yeah, he can be a 2 WAR player
Matt

Chances Bonds becomes a manager any time soon?
Dan Szymborski
12:45
Doesn't seem the managerial type
12:46
He knows hitting more than any man alive though
Fart McGonigle
12:46
Does Odor hit 25 bombs this year or is this another situation where a player got hot for a couple months?
Dan Szymborski
12:46
25 is a little aggressive but I think he'll still hit homers

why should I be said I can't drink $8 natty boh cans anymore?
Dan Szymborski
12:47
You shouldn't. Mr. Boh is a cultural icon, but his beer is not very good

Perhaps I *don't* want to see this one but... was there a Vogelsong ZiPS posted anywhere? If not, you can either provide it here or just post a poop emoji to spare me the pain of knowing.

Gregory Polanco hits the ball hard more than most players, yet those hard hit balls dropped for hits considerably less often than what is generally expected last season. Do you see the low babip on hard hit balls correcting itself and him having a breakout season? What sort of slashline would we be looking at if it did?
Dan Szymborski
12:48
I think he has good breakout odds.

Why do you ignore the huge risks in the Cubs offseason moves? Zobrist could easily breakdown due to his age. Heyward was widely seen as a huge overpay and he is moving to a position CF that he has never played. Lackey was cheap because of the big age risk also. "Perfect" offseason seems lie it needs a lot to dream on.
Dan Szymborski
12:49
Zobrist could, but his salary reflects that risk - if he had been 28 he'd be paid a lot more.
12:50
An incredibly athletic RF who has played CF playing CF isn't like trying to turn Jon Papelbon into a social worker
And again, Lackey's price reflects that risk.
Gary

Do you have old versions of ZIPs saved? Or is the whole thing version controlled?
Dan Szymborski
12:50
Yes
Jack

Do you think Swanson will be a fantasy stud one day?
Dan Szymborski
12:50
I think the odds are good.

The can't find the plate ceremonial first pitch is clearly the best individual pitch.
Jon
12:51
Who has the most underrated rotation?
Dan Szymborski
12:52
Might actually be the Dodgers - a shocking number of people think they're horrible after Kershaw
CamdenWarehouse

How bad will Galladro in Baltimore be? is league average the best we can hope for?
Dan Szymborski
12:52
I wouldn't expect more than that
Sean

Have you ever heard of or played Dwarf Fortress? Why did I just discover this amazing game last week?
Dan Szymborski
12:52
I have only watched others play. It looks like the type of game that would cause me to break things.
