You ever go back and regress the various, major progressions (ZIPS, BP, ESPN, etc) to see which one consistently more accurate?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
I do lots of roundups, some ZiPS wins, some ZiPS doesn't. I keep them to myself because I have an insurmountable conflict of interest.

We had a lot of pent-up questions, Dan....we missed you!
Ron Gant

Can I be on a dessert island?

If you could eat any animal, without affecting the survival of the species, what would it be?

No, but at least I'd have whipped cream.

With the talk of pace of play being brought up, why doesn't Manfred make the umpires enforce the batter keeping 1 foot in the box at all times rule?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
Manfred seriously considers any sentence he sees.
2:59
Banning shifts? Considering it.
26-man roster? Considering it.
Make extra innings one of those gauntlets with the pain stick things from Klingon episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation? Considering it.

Sure, why not?

Thanks for coming everyone! I normally like to stretch the chat to 75 or 90 minutes, but I'm really feeling quite poorly.
Interesting colors are coming out of my nose.
On that gross note, thanks for coming! As a reminder, you can find work at ESPN.com, chats and projections at FanGraphs, and at DSzymborski on Twitter.
