OK, let's get the party going.

walk issue will be a problem for Blake Snell ? Similar to Edinson Volquez early in his career
Dan Szymborski
2:01
Given his minor league walk rates, I expect it to be his weakness.

Wait, today is only Wednesday? This week is really dragging.

What do the D-backs know about Mitch Haniger that the rest of the world (and the world's projection systems) don't? On paper he's at least an average-plus RF and he's murdering the ball in ST.
Dan Szymborski
2:02
Well, if htey know something that nobody else does, I'm part of the nobody else!
2:03
I do think people are going to a little overboard with some of the Haniger stuff. I think he'll be decnet, but let's not go crazy

I always enjoy looking at the ZiPS likelihood of outcomes. Will you be releasing a google docs ZiPS build similar to last year?
Dan Szymborski
2:03
Yes

did you see your seed in the #RockiesTwitterBracket?

I SHOULD HAVE BEEN A 4
No higher since I'm not a Rockies specific writer.
2:04
Though I think I'm toast since Rockies fans don't like me.

If you were a GM, which would you prefer to have for same long-term deal: C. Correa or C. Seager?
Dan Szymborski
2:05
Correa, but this is a beer or tacos question.

Any update on when the Zips spreadsheet with splits and D will be posted? Thanks!
Dan Szymborski
2:05
When it's up.

A Taco is really just an open-face burrito. What say you, Szymborski?
Dan Szymborski
2:05
Depends.

More lamentable: Colin Kapernick's decision to kneel during national anthem or the lack of a white teammate to kneel with him?
Dan Szymborski
2:06
Don't comment on political issues.

What is your feeling on Javier Baez's chances of earning a full time gig this year? If he does, what would you expect from him? I feel like he's got a good chance at being a 20/20 guy if he gets the playing time.
Dan Szymborski
2:06
I think he'll carve out a de facto full-time gig.

As always, there are repeat commercials in this year's NCAA tournament TV coverage. I need you to settle my internal debate: Is that LG knock-on refrigerator thing a terrible idea or a cool idea? (My concern is that in a household of 4, the knocking would be ridiculously annoying. And I'm not sure that the benefit is very high.) So I guess I'm not even really internally debating. Problem solved. Thanks!
Dan Szymborski
2:08
I'm not sure the problem it solves. For people who have no idea what is in their fridge?

What should the Pirates do with Austin Meadows??
Dan Szymborski
2:09
I think Cutch is eventually traded.

For the lightning round: have you played the new torment game? Personally I loved it
Dan Szymborski
2:09
I haven't. (No Lightning Round)

If Jose Molina wanted a nickname like "A-Rod", how would you let him down easy?

Dan - What are your thoughts on leaving Wheeler and Harvey down in extended spring training and giving Gsellman/Lugo the 4&5 spots? Then bring up the 2 formers in July for a playoff run.
Dan Szymborski
2:11
Don't see the point unless you feel they're not ready
britishcub
2:11
Is spring training more than daily checking that no one on your team is injured? That's all I get out of it
Dan Szymborski
2:11
ITS BASEBALL. Outside of that it's not a big deal.

Dan Szymborski, making his weekly Wednesday appearance but on a Friday. So tell me, Dan Szymborski, would you perhaps be willing- or perhaps unwilling to declare that Nick Markakis is, for all intents and purposes, the greatest ballplayer, insofar that you measure greatness by how much you loathe said player?

Yasiel Puig has exceeded 400 AB's one time in his 5 year major league career. Zips has his projections at 541AB's. Zips also has him getting a career high in HR/RBI, which would make sense if he's able to get those AB's. Do you personally believe we will see a career year out of Yasiel Puig this season?
