Can someone please explain to me how Sanchez could lead the AL in ERA last year, yet not even be a Cy Young finalist?! I mean I know ERA isn't nor shouldn't be the end all stat it once was, but still!

I didn't vote on that (I was NL ROY) but I would have strongly considered him

With Manfred saying Las Vegas would be a viable city for an expansion team, who do you think could get an expansion team first? Las Vegas or Montreal? Or other?

Manfred will say he's considering anything you ask him.

I would literally do just about anything for a 10 year, $30 million contact
AvatarDan Szymborski

Would you pay $40 million? That would not be a good deal.

Not muscle gain, strictly fat gain, a 300 lb Mike Trout would be awesome.

The defense would fall off quite a bit

According to Jon Heyman, the Mets "seriously considered" giving up Conforto for JD Martinez. That can't be true, right? RIGHT?

They also seriously consider starting Jay Bruce, so it could be.

Arenado may be the best player in the NL, not a dark horse.

Rather watch a pitcher go 7 innings with 14 K's or complete game in under 100 pitches?

I like The Maddux.

Ever notice how west-coasters have names like Salmon and Trout?

They all secretly wish they lived next to the ocean that WASNT creepily cold in the summer.

It would be nice if there was a FG chat someday that wasn't 60% inside jokes, non-baseball questions, and snark.

I've been doing this for 20 years. You think Coke is suddenly going to say "Hey, let's just rye bread for now on?"

I did not realize we had the leader of Freedonia in this chat. Hello, Mr. Firefly!

What is a good encore for Rick Porcello like?
AvatarDan Szymborski

Bazzini's La ronde de lutins is an excellent encore if he plays the violin.

Hi Dan. So the O's suddenly, finally, made a flurry of milquetoast moves. Were they more 'too little too late' or 'better late than never'?
AvatarDan Szymborski
3:07
O's in the awkward position that the stuff it would have made sense for them to pay aggressively for this offseason didn't exist.
And no farm system.
Well, not literally no farm system, but their assets down there are very limited
I don't think there's not much they could've done.
