If Machado gets injured and Alvarez plays 3rd, how hilarious will the Baltimore defense be?
Dan Szymborski
12:49
That's not even funny.

Still 4.

Dan, Jhonny going down has really put me a bind. My best SS options are either Jon Villar or Eduardo Escobar. They're both pretty sucky but who would you pick?
Dan Szymborski
12:51
Escobar has less scariness looking over his shoulder
Erik

Correa, though it's tricky to beat out both.

Ever seen anyone quit an auction draft in the first round because they didn't get the players they wanted? I did it Saturday. I didn't get my nomination in before the limit, and instead of turning my bids off for 1 player the commish left it on for 3 players. Missed out on harper and Max because of human error. So I quit and ruined the draft.
Dan Szymborski
12:53
I have not

Don't you think the A.J. Reed crowd might be looking past Tyler White, who has been crushing it since he became a professional? Peak performance Billy Butler a good comp for White?
Dan Szymborski
12:55
PEAK Billy Butler as a White comp? We're getting a little overexcited here.
12:56
If you think Tyler White's best comparison involves a 130 OPS+, you're rather unaware of the history of walk-heavy 1B old for their levels.

How do you deal with the time change? Any Szymborski secrets?
Dan Szymborski
12:57
Everythign changes automatically and I usually don't notice
Socrates Cheeto

Better experience at a game: Catch a foul ball, get on kiss cam or witness a brawl?
Dan Szymborski
12:57
Foul ball. I like stuff
Alex

If you had to make an obscure metaphor that describes the Colorado Rockies front office, what would it be?
Dan Szymborski
12:57
Star Trek Voyager
12:58
Good prospects but they have no idea where they're going and you kinda lose interest.
Bork
12:58
Tulo have any more all-star seasons left in him?
Dan Szymborski

Yes
Dave Szymborski
12:58
I like this shirt better anyway.

If you are going to protest vote, vote Kasich. Or are you not a fan of more chaos?
Dan Szymborski
12:58
Kasich has been the best Trump-enabler. I'm not rewarding him for that.

As a natural rights libertarian, how would you respond to a utilitarian argument for some provision of welfare to the least well-off in society w/o deferring to the basic liberty answer (full disclosure, I'm a left-leaning Canadian econ and polisci student)
Dan Szymborski
12:59
I'm pragmatic. I see libertarianism as a goal to work *towards* not something you just implement on Day One of a dictatorship.
Kylie

Today is the day that med students find out whether they got a residency (and are allowed to continue their careers and training), or if they just wasted $200,000 and 8 years of their lives. Not really baseball relevant, but good luck to everyone!

Is Zips an OLS regression model, or more complicated than that?
Dan Szymborski

If I was that lazy I woudln't even bother.
