I have not.

Have you seen The Witch? It's pretty good as long as two teenage girls aren't talking and sitting on their phones the entire time.....why does that happen every time I go to the movies? Have I done something to deserve this?
Dan Szymborski
12:52
I have also not.

Have you ever been to Rhinegeist, Listermann, and/or MadTree? Thoughts? Favorites?
Dan Szymborski
12:53
I have been to Rhinegeist but not the others. I'm not in Cincy enough to be a Cincy beer location expert.

If the White Sox have another bad season, do you think they start selling off pieces like Quintana, Abreu, maybe Eaton to start a rebuild? And should they?
Dan Szymborski
12:54
I think if they need to rebuild, it wouldn't start until 2017

I like your chats Dan bc they feel much more live than other writer's chats. Their chats are basically "put all you questions in a queue and come back later to see if it was answered". It feels more like a mailbag. Here I can ask a question in chat and see it answered. Keep up the good work
Dan Szymborski
12:54
I still can't answer anywhere near all of them because you guys are so quick and ask so many things
But I try to answer as many as I can, though it sometimes involves me being veyr off the cuff
12:55
chats are fast and furious!

It could be hypothesized that Dan Duquette uses the MAC system in regards to free agency.
Dan Szymborski
12:55
For those unaware, that means [M]ove in [A]fter [C]ompletion
Then the Reds get the scraps.
Ian Desmond
12:55
Where will I land?
Dan Szymborski
12:56
Airport presumably

Would the dbacks had been better off had they just called swanson up out of A-ball to play 2nd?
Dan Szymborski
12:56
That's a little aggressive.
Matt

One trade that you really think should happen
Dan Szymborski
12:56
$50 million to me.
Jon

Liberty Media is planning on IPO'ing the Braves (re: publicly traded baseball teams)

If you were the GM of Baltimore, would you part with two picks to get Gallardo and Fowler (assuming the latter happens)? The farm system is somewhat barren.
Dan Szymborski
12:57
The O's are in a very awkward position, truthfully.
12:58
They've spent $150 million just to get the roster back to last season's quality.

Help me understand League of Legends. My 19-year old stepson plays it all the time.

Cartoon heroes with different powers are trying to destroy the other team's glowy crystal thing. THere's more to it than that, but that's essentially the purpose

Here's a counter opinion to a prevoius rec of The Witch. It was rather tedious and the lack of subtitles with the Old English dialogue made it difficult sit through.
Rudy

Why is Streamer so low on Sonny Gray this year. They have his WHIP at 1.30?
Kyle

what are your thoughts on adjusting "system" projections for individual players for fantasy purposes? how much time do you spend at the individual player level when updating ZiPS ?
Dan Szymborski
12:59
You need to ask the Steamer guys!
I don't adjust the base projections

Will you be live broadcasting your drafts as you did last year

Possibly

Say you become wealthy and decide to become a venture capitalist. What is your investment philosophy?
Dan Szymborski
1:00
Not be a venture capitalist. I'm past the age where I want to deal with stress.
Steve

at what point do the Dodgers ignore the money (Crawford/Ethier) and go with the better players (Van Slyke/Thompson)?
Dan Szymborski
1:01
I wouldn't be surprised to see Crawford be expensively unemployed sometime this summer.
