He can always be a bit better, but I don't see the HRs going that high
Free Toles!
2:35
So how many PAs can we expect the annoying dodgers (with all of their annoying depth) to give Toles this year?
Dan Szymborski
2:36
250-300? They have a lot of guys

How far back in time do you think we would have to go to find a World Series winner worse than the 2017 Padres? Infinitely?
Dan Szymborski
2:36
They would certainly be the worst team I ever projected to win the World Series.

Is the Kipnis extension a fair comparison for Odor's extension?
Dan Szymborski
2:38
I can see something comparable
Zach Walters Appreciation Guild
2:38
$750M for those three means Harvey's had one hell of a decline.
Jeremy
2:38
Somebody should calculate all the time we've would have saved if the intentional walk rule was around during Bonds' peak years
Hoser
2:38
If Trout was better than Bonds and Ruth put together then he would be comparable to Gretzky.

Re: Kendrys Morales, like 275/30/90 well?
Dan Szymborski
2:38
Would take the under on the BA for sure.
Andrew
2:39
What do you think of Bo Bichette? Could he become a stud SS prospect a la Torres/Rosario?
Dan Szymborski
2:39
A little premature.
Guys that young, I don't like forming too much of an opinion without some significant professional play, even looking at tapes

Dan - as a paying FG member, I am officially a customer. You should never yell at your customers, Dan.
Dan Szymborski

I can yell as a I please!
Randal Grichuk's #1 fan
2:40
Am I wrong to be a fan of Randal Grichuk?
Dan Szymborski
2:40
Not if it's what your heart tells you

How will Eric Hosmer ever sign a 10-year deal when the Rockies signed the greatest 1B of all time in Ian Desmond?
Dan Szymborski
2:40
I'd sign Hosmer for 10-years, $30 million. That's like seven free years!
Matt
2:41
Schafer? I barely knew her.
Free Toles!

Why do we never see college coaches hired by MLB teams in need of managers?
Dan Szymborski
2:41
College baseball has always been the weak cousin of the college versions of major sports
2:42
The minors are an extensive buffer between majors and college that you don't have

Based on pure value, what does a Mike Trout trade return look like? Can be prospects from multiple teams, not just one.....
Dan Szymborski
2:43
It would almost need to be a complex trade because I don't think a fair value for Trout is so much
Ron
2:43
Why are people so high on Jon Gray? All things being equal (Park Factors, Run Support, etc.) he is a top (insert here) pitcher?
Dan Szymborski
2:43
Becaue he pitches well?
mtsw

Is the full version of the ZiPS algorithm used in OOTP18 or is it just a set of projections you've already run?
Dan Szymborski
2:43
Set of projections
Lou Holtz
2:43
What type of season does Stroman have? Cy young caliber?
Dan Szymborski
2:43
I think he's good, but people have frequently overrated him. He's not an elite pitcher.
Matt
2:44
Dan, Dan, he's our man! If he can't do it, then it's hard to imagine that in a world of over 6 billion people there's not someone else who can!
