Man, you got some playing to do.
1:20
If you're currently employed, you might want to stop that.
You've got a lot of gaming to catch up on.

Favorite Dan Hicks song?
Dan Szymborski

While I'm familiar with his very eclectic catalog, not so much I'm comfortable picking favorites.

when did u realize you were good at writing baseball?
Dan Szymborski
1:21
Still not sure I am.
Well, I think I am, but I'm not positive, and I tend to hate things the second after I file them.

I'd support local pizza places but the one's around me don't deliver. I mean, do they expect me to go outside or something?
Dan Szymborski
1:22
Good pizza is worth pants-wearing and I say that as a hater of pants

You say 2030, would that be through a relocation or league expansion? And would there be other cities who would get a club first? (You're strong with that SABR mojo magic)
Dan Szymborski
1:22
I think we get an expansion to 32
Maybe not even 2030, maybe 2040
I think we eventually get a third team in NY somehow
1:23
I don't think Las Vegas or Portland are plausible
maybe North Carolina

If 25% of the people who claim to have been expos fans actually were expos fans they would still have a team
Dan Szymborski
1:23
The fans got punched in the face so much.
So that's unfair.

If your favorite hot dog company started giving you salmonella a few times a year, you'd probably stop buying their product, even if you grew up enjoying it.

Coming up I have a piece on the Red Bull Team Brawl from this weekend, fantasy candidates in which to strongly consider park effects, and in coming weeks, the ZiPS Top 100 Prospects and the Top 25 and Bottom 25 players in trade value (will have a better name than this which is still being decided)
Also, I interviewed poker legend Daniel Negreanu about Hearthstone recently, so check that out. And Tampa Bay Rays are final ZiPS team, this Wednesday.
