The troublemaker Cistulli didn't sabotage me today, so away we go!
RotoLando

Is it Monday already?
Dan Szymborski
2:05
I'll normally be on Wednesday.
Robin
2:05
Are Thursdays going to be your new regular time? Dave keeps telling us on Wednesdays that you're up next
Dan Szymborski
2:05
See on top.
Open Meadows
2:05
Austin Meadows = Benintendi with less power more speed. T/F?
Dan Szymborski
2:05
A little simplistic. They're both really advanced hitters skillwise and have pretty swings.
But I guess it's not the worst comparison in the world
New Guy

Do we see Miguel Sano take a step forward this year, or is there too much swing and miss in his game? If yes, should he have a shot to hit 35 homers with an acceptable BA?
Dan Szymborski
2:07
His power upside is just insane. He does miss a lot, but he's at least swinging and missing against good pitches.
John
2:07
Will the Christian Bethancourt experiment work out?
Dan Szymborski
2:07
The pitching? No idea, but it's the kind of thing rebuilding teams should be exploring.
TKDC

Why do you think there are so many players getting terrible free agency deals this year, compared to what was expected?
Dan Szymborski
2:08
I'm not sure they are - I think reality's starting to set in on these offense only old corner outfield types
John
2:09
Will Luis Perdomo start the year in AAA?
Dan Szymborski
2:09
I think he does, actually - there's no rush.
Slamboni
2:09
Napoli supposedly turned down more money from Minnesota to go to Texas. Do you think that he saw an opportunity to get more playing time or another ring?
Dan Szymborski
2:09
Both to an extent.
2:10
Napoli's pretty clearly the 1B in Texas, something that would not happen in Minnesota.
He'd be fighting with Vargas for DH time really.
2:11
And the Rangers will likely be better than the Twins
Beagle
2:11
Who starts for the Dodgers after Kershaw, Hill, and Maeda?
Dan Szymborski
2:12
Urias, Kazmir, whoever has their arm attached.
Jaime
2:12
Who leads the Yankees in home runs this year?
Dan Szymborski
2:12
Sanchez
ZiPS Fan
2:12
I use customized ZiPS projections for my fantasy team cheat sheet -- what are some key 'weaknesses' of ZiPS/projection systems in general that i should account for when using these forecasts? (besides the obvious injuries/playing time)
Dan Szymborski
2:12
You hit the obvious ones.
2:13
Players with shorter track record will be harder to project, but you'll have that problem with any estimation of players with shorter track record.
Albert Almora Jr.
2:13
Over under 1.5 WAR for me in 2017?
Dan Szymborski
2:13
Over actually. Let's bank on good defense.
Papers Please
2:13
Does CJ Wilson suck as a race car driver and attempt a pitching comeback in 2018?
Dan Szymborski
2:13
Not sure how to evaluate a race card driver
ryan
2:13
is there a circumstance in which the Orioles could trade Machado this year? what sort of package would he demand? 2 top 50 prospects and an additional top 100? is that totally naive?
Dan Szymborski
2:13
I think no.
RotoLando
2:13
Jesus Aguilar was picked up by The Brewers. Do you have to go back and start all over?
Dan Szymborski
2:13
Yup.
Yuk Yuk Puk
2:14
Profar playing LF for the Netherlands in the WBC. Does that mean he is in left for the Rangers next season?
Dan Szymborski
2:14
It's a Mazara, Gomez, Choo outfield most likely, Profar will be all over the place.
Austin
2:14
Better long term outlook Mets or Yankees and why?
Dan Szymborski
2:14
Yankees now that they've retooled their farm system.
