Hey Dan - You should tell those people that complain about the non-baseball questions and inside jokes that they should just BUZZ OFF
Mariner Moose

Sorry, @unimpressed, snark is the fuel of the internet

Why did you answer my throwaway joke instead of letting me know how angry you thought Angelos was that the Nats signed Wieters?
Dan Szymborski
3:10
I don't know why he'd be angry
Chuncey Wiggins

How many 10-year olds would you have to scatter throughout the outfield for them to field like a league average outfield?
Dan Szymborski
3:10
6?
Aidan

Dan, you never replied to my email about suggestions for a nonparametric baseball-related research topic :(
Dan Szymborski
3:10
I'm sorry, I'm horribly behind on my email. I'll make sure and find it today

Not sure how long you've been voting on awards, but was it a little frustrating getting stuck with NL ROY? I would see AL CY or something similar as more fun compared to an easy pick like corey seager
Dan Szymborski
3:10
I'm in the Cincy chapter, so I'm mostly going to be voting for NL awards unless they need a fill-in elsewhere, like you sometimes see

You can only have one rotation, the Red Sox's or the Blue Jays'......
Dan Szymborski
3:11
Uh, Red Sox?
There's No Dellin
3:12
Boy...based on his stellar minor league history and short-but-impressive MLB debut, ZiPS sure did a number on the Bucs' Adam Frazier. What's up?
Dan Szymborski
3:12
Walk heavy no power guys translate horribly from the minors if they're not unbelievably fast.

So as far as Harambe goes, you're just like Donald Trump. "They did what, I assume, they had to do"
Dan Szymborski
3:13
I just said I don't have strong feelings!
Bootles
3:13
What did Blanton do to deserve this fate?
Dan Szymborski
3:13
He knows
TKDC

What's worse: posting political nonsense of Facebook, or posting about how much you don't like political nonsense posts on Facebook, on Facebook?
Dan Szymborski
3:13
Political stuff has made Facebook unreadable and Twitter you now have to heavily curate to keep it readable

I believe "The Padres 2017 Rotation" is recognized in the DSM-5 as a severe form depression
Dan Szymborski
3:14
I think it's a cause of a syndrome, not the syndrome itself
Matt
3:14
I'm all for wearing crazy socks. But red ones?! That's just insane.
ECinDC
3:14
Fair. Just a note, the O's are the only team in MLB that Nats haven't made a trade with since they moved to Washington.

What does your gut tell you? One-year power spike or new power era?
Dan Szymborski
3:14
Looking at my gut, it mostly tells me to drink beer.
Ferris Buehler
3:14
How many ounces of pee do you think you can drink?
Dan Szymborski
3:14
Like for free? None. If I need to drink my pee to stay hydrated in an emergency? I can probably drink it. It's essentially sterile
Ron
3:14
Jon Gray pitches well relative to where he plays home games. He doesn't pitch well overall
Dan Szymborski
3:15
Distinction without a difference.
He pitches well.
Do you think astronauts on the moon are just the most amazing jumpers ever?
3:16
Do you think LeBron James with an old timey cannonball chained to his ankle just would suck at jumping?
Doug
3:16
Good lord!! What kind of idiot comes up with these stupid questions.?
Dan Szymborski
3:16
The guys asking them I think
Matt
3:16
I deactivated my Facebook. I don't follow any friends on Twitter...just baseball, and people who's political opinions I care to hear.
Did you gut also tell you to take acid? Because that's the only way I can imagine that your gut is talking.
Dan Szymborski
3:16
OK guys, 3:16 and it's time for me to head out
3:17
