And as for Carlos Gomez, he's a stopgap, not something who gets a haul.

Do your cats share a litter area? Or are they separate and you've literally opened Pandora's box?
Dan Szymborski
2:39
Yeah, the litter boxes are in the downstairs bathroom

If Manfred expands into Mexico which city is more realistic to land a team? Monterey with less of a surrounding population or Mexico city with a 7000 ft elevation?
Dan Szymborski
2:39
Probably Mexico City, but I think we're a few decades away.

Dodgers 6-10 starters better than whatever the Padres have at the moment?

Oklahoma City 6-10 starters may be better than the Padres

They say Otani is both the best pitcher & hitter in his league. If Trout could also pitch as well as Kershaw, what would his WAR look like? It's not as simple as adding Trout + Kershaw because it's one less roster spot, but you also don't have Trout in center when he is pitching. Any idea?
Dan Szymborski
2:40
You don't really lose CF value that much, simply because Trout's offense is even more valuable while pitching
2:41
You lose what, 2 runs of defense relative to average at most while giving Trout 4/5 the games in CF?

You are watching your favorite team this year, would your prefer a team that can hit some HR but for the most part can manufacture runs, play great defense, and have solid pitching. Or have your team hit 300 homeruns combined and be below average-average everywhere else?
Dan Szymborski
2:41
I mostly prefer just winning.
Depends how good the things are.

Do you think the Nationals see something Enny Romero they can fix? Or is more a situation where they are going to try to start scooping of lottery tickets and hope one wins big?
Dan Szymborski
2:42
If you throw 96 and haven't murdered someone, teams will try to fix you forever

Regarding Mexico expansion... I'm a little confused as to how MLB expects a team in Mexico generate any revenue, nonetheless how players would feel about living there for half the year. Seems like it would be a pretty big deterrent for players. Any insight?
Dan Szymborski
2:42
I don't think it actually h appens in th enear future

Dahl

Most surprising playoff team in 17?
Dan Szymborski
2:42
Rockies are at least a possibility
2:43
I think they're run poorly at the MLB level and they've missed a ton of opportunities, but they may brute force their way with some of the talent they have

Projections on Domingo Santana are .252/20/63 with 6 steals. Is that his ceiling?
Dan Szymborski
2:43
Ceiling? That's a l ittle pessimistic

Has Congress approached you about heading their newly created Department of Hot Dog Classification?
Dan Szymborski

I wouldn't get Senate approval.

thoughts on the Marlins going to "A New York real estate developer with not a lot of liquid assets"? It's going to be a Trump kid, right?
Dan Szymborski
2:44
It would be entertaining

Would you rather have peak Barry Bonds or peak Mike Trout? Team/league context notwithstanding.
